A genus of STARFISH in the family Asteriidae. One species, Asterias rubens, is the most common in the north-east Atlantic region.
Echinoderms having bodies of usually five radially disposed arms coalescing at the center.
A phylum of the most familiar marine invertebrates. Its class Stelleroidea contains two subclasses, the Asteroidea (the STARFISH or sea stars) and the Ophiuroidea (the brittle stars, also called basket stars and serpent stars). There are 1500 described species of STARFISH found throughout the world. The second class, Echinoidea, contains about 950 species of SEA URCHINS, heart urchins, and sand dollars. A third class, Holothuroidea, comprises about 900 echinoderms known as SEA CUCUMBERS. Echinoderms are used extensively in biological research. (From Barnes, Invertebrate Zoology, 5th ed, pp773-826)
Neutral glycosphingolipids that contain a monosaccharide, normally glucose or galactose, in 1-ortho-beta-glycosidic linkage with the primary alcohol of an N-acyl sphingoid (ceramide). In plants the monosaccharide is normally glucose and the sphingoid usually phytosphingosine. In animals, the monosaccharide is usually galactose, though this may vary with the tissue and the sphingoid is usually sphingosine or dihydrosphingosine. (From Oxford Dictionary of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1st ed)
An island republic in the eastern Mediterranean Sea. Its capital is Nicosia. It was colonized by the Phoenicians and ancient Greeks and ruled successively by the Assyrian, Persian, Ptolemaic, Roman, and Byzantine Empires. It was under various countries from the 12th to the 20th century but became independent in 1960. The name comes from the Greek Kupros, probably representing the Sumerian kabar or gabar, copper, famous in historic times for its copper mines. The cypress tree is also named after the island.

Ca2+ spikes in the flagellum control chemotactic behavior of sperm. (1/14)

The events that occur during chemotaxis of sperm are only partly known. As an essential step toward determining the underlying mechanism, we have recorded Ca2+ dynamics in swimming sperm of marine invertebrates. Stimulation of the sea urchin Arbacia punctulata by the chemoattractant or by intracellular cGMP evokes Ca2+ spikes in the flagellum. A Ca2+ spike elicits a turn in the trajectory followed by a period of straight swimming ('turn-and-run'). The train of Ca2+ spikes gives rise to repetitive loop-like movements. When sperm swim in a concentration gradient of the attractant, the Ca2+ spikes and the stimulus function are synchronized, suggesting that precise timing of Ca2+ spikes controls navigation. We identified the peptide asterosap as a chemotactic factor of the starfish Asterias amurensis. The Ca2+ spikes and swimming behavior of sperm from starfish and sea urchin are similar, implying that the signaling pathway of chemotaxis has been conserved for almost 500 million years.  (+info)

Yolk granule tethering: a role in cell resealing and identification of several protein components. (2/14)

Homotypic fusion among echinoderm egg yolk granules has previously been reconstituted in vitro, and shown to be a rapid, Ca2+-triggered reaction that can produce extremely large (>10 microm diameter) fusion products. We here show that, prior to Ca2+-triggered fusion, yolk granules in vitro, if isolated in an appropriate buffer, became tethered to one another, forming large aggregates of more than 100 granules. Granule washing with mildly chaotropic salt abolished this tethering reaction, and prevented Ca2+-triggered formation of the large fusion products characteristic of tethered granules. Protein factors present in the wash restored tethering activity and these factors could be substantially enriched by anion exchange chromatography. The enriched fraction behaved under native conditions as a high molecular weight (approximately 670 kDa), multisubunit complex of at least seven proteins. Monoclonal antibodies directed against this complex of proteins were capable of immunodepleting tethering activity, confirming the role of the complex in granule tethering. These antibodies selectively stained the surface of yolk granules in the intact egg. We therefore propose a new role for tethering: it can promote the formation of large vesicular fusion products, such as those required for successful resealing. We have, moreover, identified several proteins that may be critical to this tethering mechanism.  (+info)

Acrosome reaction is subfamily specific in sea star fertilization. (3/14)

In the fertilization process of sea stars, sperm is activated to go through the acrosome reaction before cell fusion. We focused on induction of the acrosome reaction as a key process in fertilization. Six species of sea stars were used in this study: Asterias amurensis, Asterias rubens, Asterias forbesi, Aphelasterias japonica, Distolasterias nipon, and Asterina pectinifera. Acrosome reaction assays indicate that the acrosome reaction can be induced across species within Asteriinae subfamily. However, cross-fertilization assays indicate that sea stars have species specificity in fertilization. Therefore, steps after the acrosome reaction are responsible for the species specificity. To explain acrosome reaction subfamily specificity at the molecular level, the sugar components of egg jelly were examined and analyzed by principal component analysis. A. amurensis and A. forbesi belong to the same induction group of the acrosome reaction. D. nipon and An. pectinifera are in a unique group. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays indicate that Asteriinae subfamily share a common glycan structure, the Fragment 1 of Acrosome Reaction-Inducing Substance from A. amurensis. Fragment 1 plays an important role in the subfamily specificity of acrosome reaction induction. In addition, A. amurensis sperm activating peptide was recognized by sperm from the same superorder. These results demonstrate that the specificity of acrosome reaction induction is present at the subfamily level in sea stars.  (+info)

Coelomocytes and post-traumatic response in the common sea star Asterias rubens. (4/14)

Coelomocytes are recognized as the main cellular component of the echinoderm immune system. They are the first line of defense and their number and type can vary dramatically during infections or following injury. Sea stars have been used as a model system to study the regeneration process after autotomy or predation. In the present study we examined the cellular and biochemical responses of coelomocytes from the European sea star Asterias rubens to traumatic stress using immunochemical and biochemical approaches. In terms of trauma and post-traumatic stress period, here we consider the experimental arm amputation and the repair phase involved in the first 24 hours post-amputation, which mimicked a natural predation event. Four cell morphotypes were distinguishable in the coelomic fluid of both control and post-traumatic-stressed animals (phagocytes, amoebocytes, vibratile cells, hemocytes), but phagocytes were the major components, accounting for about 95% of the total population. Thus, the effects measured relate to the overall population of coelomocytes. A modest increase in the total number of freely circulating coelomocytes was observed 6 hours post-amputation. Interestingly, a monoclonal antibody (McAb) to a sea urchin embryo adhesion protein (toposome) cross-reacted with isolated sea star coelomocytes and stained the coelomic epithelium of control animals with an increase in trauma-stressed arms. In addition, coelomocytes from trauma-stressed animals showed a time-dependent increase in Hsp70 levels, as detected by both immunocytochemistry and immunoblotting within 24 hours after arm tip amputation, with a peak at 6 hours after amputation. Our findings indicate a clear role for coelomocytes and classic stress molecules in the post-traumatic stress associated with the early repair phase of regeneration.  (+info)

Can salinity-induced mortality explain larval vertical distribution with respect to a halocline? (5/14)

For the larvae of two echinoderm species that coexist in Atlantic Canada (bipinnaria of the sea star Asterias rubens and 4- and 6-arm echinoplutei of the sea urchin Strongylocentrotus droebachiensis), we examined the effect of short- and long-term exposure to salinity (ranging from 18 to 35) on the probability of larval survival in laboratory experiments. We also related larval vertical distributions in response to sharp haloclines generated in the laboratory to survival probability in the salinity of different layers in the water column. For both species and developmental stages, survival probability decreased with decreasing salinity, and a salinity range of 24-27 emerged as the critical threshold for larval tolerance. The relationship between the proportion of larvae that crossed a halocline into the top water layer and the survival probability of larvae in the salinity of that layer was significant for both species. Interestingly, the shape of this response was species-specific but not stage-specific for S. droebachiensis. Our findings suggest that larval avoidance of low-salinity water layers may be an adaptive behavior that increases survival and indirectly influences larval distribution.  (+info)

Glycosylceramides obtain from the starfish Asterias amurensis Lutken. (6/14)

Complex lipids in the starfish Asterias amurensis were characterized and the influence of sphingoid bases on human colon carcinoma Caco-2 cells was also investigated. Lipid content of gonad and viscera were 3.3% and 6.8%, respectively, in wet basis. The main lipid class in gonad was ceramide monohexoside (CMH) while triglyceride (TG) was predominant in the viscera. The most abundant fatty acid in the polar lipid was eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA, C20:5n-3), with the gonad and viscera samples having the highest proportion of 41.5% and 32.7%, respectively, of total fatty acids. Starfish internal organ contained enormous amount (0.7% in wet base) of glycosylceramide. Sphingoid bases of the glycosylceramide were mainly consisted of d22:2, d22:1 and d18:3. This sphingoid base exerted an apoptotic activity on Caco-2 cells. Thus, starfish could be used as a potential source of precious and useful complex lipids.  (+info)

N2 - We describe a culture method in which larval muscle cells of the starfish Asterias amurensis develop from epithelial cells, probably deriving from the coelomic pouches. The nature of the muscle which appears in the culture is described morphologically, physiologically and ultrastructurally. Cells were dissociated from the late gastrula stage, treated with 0.6 M of glycine in half-strength sea water free of Ca2+ and Mg2+ for 12 hr, and cultured for various periods. Elongated cells appeared after about a week from small aggregates of epithelial cells which were found among the mesenchymal network on the 1st day of culture. The characteristics of the elongated cells are as follows: (1) they possess two or more arms; (2) they adhere to the cultural substratum, mesenchyme cells, and themselves at ...

Granulocytes of the epigonal and Leydig organs of Rhizoprionodon lalandii were identified and classified into three different cell types, type I and type II eosinophils and neutrophils. the development of these cells in the haematopoietic tissues was dynamic, demonstrated by nuclear immunopositivity for the proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) proteins and was regulated by various cytokines, including the transforming growth factor beta-1 (TGFbeta(1)). the expression pattern of these cells was heterogeneous among individual cells and TGFbeta(1)-immunostaining was found principally in the cytoplasm of immature granulocytes. the presence of TGFbeta(1) in cells about to divide was demonstrated suggesting that modulation of differentiation and proliferation occurs in the haematopoietic tissues of this species of elasmobranch.

Dyneins are ATPases which transduce the chemical energy of ATP into the mechanical force required for ciliary and flageUar beating, i These enzymes are located in the inner and outer arms that project from the outer doublet microtubules of cilia and flagella. Dyneins have been ex- tracted and partially or completely purified from a number of different sources, including cilia of the protozoans Tetrahymena 2 and Parame- cium,3 cilia of lamellibranch gills (Aequipecten 4 and UnioS), sperm flagella of starfish (Asterias6), trout (Salmo7), bull (Bos8.9), and a variety of sea urchins (e.g., Colobocentrotus,10 Hemicentrotus,11 Strongylocentrotus, 12 and Tripneustes~3), and flagella of the green alga Chlamydomonas. 14~5 Chlamydomonas has several advantages for the purification and study of dynein.

In the oceans, naturally occurring manganese (Mn) is released from the sediments during events of hypoxia. While neuro- and immuno-toxic effects of bioavailable manganese are well documented for crustaceans, studies of similar effects of manganese on other marine invertebrates are comparatively few. Here, we developed a new functional test the repeated turning assay to investigate if manganese exposure at ∼12 mg L−1 affected motoric behaviour of two asteroid echinoderms, the Common sea star, Asterias rubens, and the Black brittle star, Ophiocomina nigra. By measuring of the turning-over capacity, from dorsal to ventral position, after one and two weeks of manganese exposure, we showed that for both species Mn exposure significantly delayed the ability to turn. After a recovery period of two weeks, the capacity of turning-over was not restored to that of unexposed animals neither for A. rubens nor for O. nigra. Further investigation of sea stars showed that Mn accumulated ∼5 fold in the ...

A new visitor arrived at the Abbey, in the person of Mr Asterias, the ichthyologist.

With these patients, we are seeing what we believe are meaningful improvements in their ability to use their arms, hands and fingers at six months and nine months following AST-OPC1 administration, said Dr. Richard G. Fessler, professor in the department of neurosurgery at Rush University Medical Center and lead investigator in the SCiStar Phase 1/2a study. Rush is one of six centers in the country currently studying this new approach.. The company is currently conducting its trials at six centers in the U.S., including in Los Angeles and San Jose at the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center. It seeks to expand that number to 12.. In the meantime, Asterias is testing a higher dose of 20 million AST-OPC1 cells in a separate group of spinal cord injury patients. They believe this number is the optimal dose of cells for achieving the highest motor improvement in patients.. These encouraging preliminary results have prompted the company to look ahead towards advancing their treatment down the ...
St. Stephen was a Jew living in the Hellenic provinces, related to the Apostle Paul and one of the first seven deacons ordained by the Apostles to serve the Church in Jerusalem (thus making him an archdeacon). In the words of Asterias:St Stephen was the starting point of the martyrs, the instructore of suffering for Christ, the foundation of righteous confession, since Stephen was the first to shed his blood for the Gospel. The Holy Spirit worked powerfully through his faith, enabling him to perform many miracles and always defeat the Jews who would dispute with him. The Jews in their hatred of St. Stephen lied about him to the people, but St. Stephen with his face illumined reminded the people of the miracles God had worked through him and even rebuked the Jews for killing the innocent Christ. The people were enraged by what they thought was blasphemy and gnashed their teeth at Stephen. It was then that he saw his Christ in the heavens and declared it so. Hearing this, the Jews took him ...

Acid burps or acid belching is a combination of belching and acid reflux. The gas expulsion that is part of normal burping may also allow stomach acid to reach the throat and mouth. This is more likely to occur in a person with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) but can affect any person who overeats or consumes alcohol. It is also more likely to occur when large amounts of air is swallowed, carbonated drinks consumed or with gas production within the upper gut.. Although acid belching is not a serious condition, it can cause significant distress. The rise of the acidic stomach contents is not the same as vomiting. With vomiting the muscles of the upper part of the small intestine, stomach and esophagus contract strongly to push out the gut contents. The expulsion is relatively violent. With acid belching the expulsion is usually not as forceful. This type of regurgitation is propeled partly by the normal stomach contractions, gravity (when lying flat or bending over) and the eruption of gas ...

Animals like mussels and barnacles produce strong adhesives that dont dissolve in water. One reason this property has drawn the interest of scientists because of the potential to produce commercial products that mimic these sticky underwater properties.. Yet the starfish, properly called the sea star, requires a different system that allows it to stick-and to unstick-as it moves across a rock or pries open the shell of a mussel. The adhesive piece of this system is characterized for the sea star species Asterias rubens in a paper published recently in PNAS.. The key part is a protein with four subunits and multiple active domains, which the researchers call Sea star footprint protein 1, or Sfp1. Some domains are known to link to metals, others to carbohydrates, and others to proteins.. Sea stars are very different from mussels or barnacles and this protein is very different from others, says study lead author Elise Hennebert of the University of Mons, Belgium. It is a protein that should ...

Ability to enroll patients with second most common cervical spinal cord injury broadens eligible population for SCiStar study and future trials. FREMONT, Calif., July 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - Asterias Biotherapeutics, Inc. (NYSE MKT: AST), a biotechnology company pioneering the field of regenerative medicine, today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has accepted the companys amendment to the clinical research protocol for its ongoing AST-OPC1 SCiStar Phase 1/2a clinical trial in motor complete cervical spinal cord injury (SCI). The amendment expands the eligibility criteria to include patients with a C-4 spinal cord injury and extends the dosing window from 14 to 30 days to 21 to 42 days post-injury. Continue Reading ». ...
A strange thing happens when freshwater and saltwater rub up against each other. In the ocean, when left undisturbed, the two kinds of water will separate into strata that are all but indiscernible from above or below-and when a deep-sea diver is swimming upwards, thinking theyre just about to come up for air, theyll actually hit another layer of clearer, fresher water that separates them from the atmosphere. Its a beguiling effect that scientists call the halocline.. For the band Hippo Campus, the idea of the halocline has taken on a profound meaning. Having just graduated high school in 2013, the four members of the band teeter in that precarious place between being a kid and being a fully independent adult; though they have been kicking their legs as hard as they can to rise above murky waters of adolescent angst, a whole new echelon of complications lingers just overhead.. The quartet have grasped the halocline like a mantra, using it as their handle on social media and as an ...
Will Trubridge competing at the 2014 Suunto Vertical Blue ©Daan Verhoeven. At this depth most divers can stop swimming - and just freefall to the depths below. It is this part of the dive that can induce the most pleasant feelings. Many freedivers feel euphoric as they enter an almost trance-like state.. Descent can be as fast as a meter a second so a world class freediver can expect to reach a depth of 100 m after approximately 1m 30s. At this depth lung volume will have shrunk from approximately 6 lt to 500 ml. The ascent is then the most psychologically challenging part of the dive as divers fight the urge to breathe. Stomach contractions kick in. Hallucinations are not uncommon. The most dangerous part of the dive is then the last 10 m to the surface - this is where the pressure difference is at its greatest and O2 supplies at their lowest - and divers are at risk of blacking out.. But its not just about the depth. Competition diving and its many disciplines are only one aspect of the ...
Objective To observe the endocrine cells in the digestive tract of Rana amurensis in and out of hibernation. Methods We used the avidin-biotin-peroxidase complex (ABC) immunohistochemical method and the anti5-HT,anti-SS,anti-PP and anti-SP serums. Results 5-HT,SS and Glu cells were detected in the digestive tract of Rana Amurensis,but GAS , PP and SP cells were not. 5-HT cells distributed widely,observed throughout the digestive tract of Rana Amurensis from esophagus to rectum. The distributive density of 5-HT cells was the highest in pylorus and duodenum in hibernation,but in the pylorus during non-hibernating time.SS cells distributed widely too, observed in the whole digestive tract except the rectum. The highest density of the SS cells was both in the pylorus during the two periods. Glu cells were detected only in gastric cardia, gastric body, jejunum and ileum in hibernation,but also in rectum during the non-hibernating period.The density of Glu distribution peaks in the gastric body.Conclusion The
TY - JOUR. T1 - Diagnostic and Therapeutic Implications of Erectile Dysfunction in Patients with Cardiovascular Disease. AU - Gandaglia, Giorgio. AU - Briganti, Alberto. AU - Montorsi, Piero. AU - Mottrie, Alexandre. AU - Salonia, Andrea. AU - Montorsi, Francesco. PY - 2016/8/1. Y1 - 2016/8/1. N2 - Erectile dysfunction (ED) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) share many common pathophysiologic pathways and might be regarded as two different clinical manifestations of the same systemic disease. Consequently, ED and CVD are pathologic conditions that often coexist in the same patient. The urologist plays an important role in the management of ED in patients with a history of cardiovascular events. Therapeutic measures aimed at improving sexual function in CVD patients should be considered only after careful evaluation of the underlying cardiologic condition and assessment of ability to exercise. Sexual activity and treatment of ED might trigger cardiac events in selected patients with preexisting ...
The red cushion star is an omnivore and feeds on the seabed sediment and the epiphytic algae, sponges and small invertebrates it finds there. It rakes together heaps of sediment and then turns its cardiac stomach inside out and engulfs the mass. Edible sponge species are chosen in preference to other prey and tend to be eliminated from areas where the starfish abound.[4] The sexes are separate in the red cushion star. In subtropical areas it breeds in the summer, but in more tropical locations it breeds all year. Large numbers of individuals may collect together in one location at breeding time with densities sometimes reaching fourteen per square metre (yard).[3] This concentration of individuals enhances the chance of fertilisation when the gametes are liberated into the sea. The larvae form part of the zooplankton and drift with the currents. After passing through several developmental stages they settle on the seabed, usually among seagrass, and undergo metamorphosis into juvenile ...

  • He split the genus into at least six subgenera, of which subgenus Asterias, section β of the Pentactinid (5-armed) section contained at least four species, three of which are still accepted in the genus today. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the early 1900s Addison Emery Verrill, working on the east coast of the USA, added a number of new species to the genus, none of which are still in Asterias, and split the genus into numerous new genera and created new genera, moving almost all of the species now recognised as belonging to Asterias to his new genus of Allasterias. (wikipedia.org)
  • Soon after, and in the following two decades, Walter Kenrick Fisher, working in California, synonymised or removed all of Verrill's species of Asterias, and synonymised Verrill's new genera of Allasterias and Parasterias with Asterias, leaving the genus with four species, all of which are still recognised today.
