On the cover: The Hawaiian bobtail squid Euprymna scolopes has a specialized light organ that is colonized by the bioluminescent bacterium Vibrio fischeri. Innate immune cells of the host, hemocytes, are thought to help mediate specificity in this symbiosis. Comparison of the hemocyte proteomes from colonized and uncolonized hosts identified a number of proteins that are influenced by the symbiosis. Shown on left is a representative hemocyte with filopodia stained with Concanavalin A-TRITC (red) and DRAQ5 (nucleus, blue). Shown on right is an adult squid. Pigmented chromatophores appear brown. The light organ is located on the ventral side of the host (not shown). For details, see the article by Tyler R. Schleicher, et al., pages 2673–2686....
