Innate Immune Responses of Drosophila melanogaster Are Altered by Spaceflight

Figure 1

Space-reared larvae have fewer plasmatocytes and are smaller.

A. The average number of plasmatocytes per larva was significantly reduced in flight vs ground (p-value <0.008, n = 20). B. Larvae reared in space were significantly smaller than ground-reared larvae (p-value <0.0085, n = 10).
