What is chloragogen cell


Chloragogen cells are specialized cells found in the body of some invertebrates, such as worms and mollusks. They are located in the connective tissue and are mainly responsible for storing and regulating the distribution of nutrients. Chloragogen cells are also involved in the metabolism and detoxification of foreign chemicals, such as heavy metals. In some organisms, they may also have a role in waste storage and excretion. These cells contain granules of glycogen, lipids, and proteins, giving them a characteristic yellow-green color. The function of chloragogen cells is essential for maintaining the overall health and homeostasis of the invertebrate body.
