Polymorphism in a cyclic parthenogenetic species: Simocephalus serrulatus. (1/744)

A survey of sixteen isozyme loci using electrophoretic techniques was conducted for three isolated natural populations and one laboratory population of the cyclic parthenogenetic species, Simocephalus serrulatus. The proportion of polymorphic loci (33%-60%) and the average number of heterozygous loci per individual (6%-23%) in the three natural populations were found to be comparable to those found in most sexually reproducing organisms. Detailed analyses were made for one of these populations using five polymorphic loci. The results indicated that (1) seasonal changes in genotypic frequencies took place, (2) apomicitic parthenogenesis does not lead to genetic homogeneity, and (3) marked gametic disequilibrium at these five loci was present in the population, indicating that selection acted on coadapted groups of genes.  (+info)

Novel regulation of the homeotic gene Scr associated with a crustacean leg-to-maxilliped appendage transformation. (2/744)

Homeotic genes are known to be involved in patterning morphological structures along the antero-posterior axis of insects and vertebrates. Because of their important roles in development, changes in the function and expression patterns of homeotic genes may have played a major role in the evolution of different body plans. For example, it has been proposed that during the evolution of several crustacean lineages, changes in the expression patterns of the homeotic genes Ultrabithorax and abdominal-A have played a role in transformation of the anterior thoracic appendages into mouthparts termed maxillipeds. This homeotic-like transformation is recapitulated at the late stages of the direct embryonic development of the crustacean Porcellio scaber (Oniscidea, Isopoda). Interestingly, this morphological change is associated with apparent novelties both in the transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation of the Porcellio scaber ortholog of the Drosophila homeotic gene, Sex combs reduced (Scr). Specifically, we find that Scr mRNA is present in the second maxillary segment and the first pair of thoracic legs (T1) in early embryos, whereas protein accumulates only in the second maxillae. In later stages, however, high levels of SCR appear in the T1 legs, which correlates temporally with the transformation of these appendages into maxillipeds. Our observations provide further insight into the process of the homeotic leg-to-maxilliped transformation in the evolution of crustaceans and suggest a novel regulatory mechanism for this process in this group of arthropods.  (+info)

Changes in physiological parameters and feeding behaviour of Atlantic salmon Salmo salar infected with sea lice Lepeophtheirus salmonis. (3/744)

Atlantic salmon Salmo salar L. artificially infected with salmon lice Lepeophtheirus salmonis (Kroyer 1837) recovered from detrimental physiological changes and skin damage induced by preadult lice as the parasites matured. Growth rates of Atlantic salmon remained unaffected by lice infection, but food consumption decreased with increasing feeding and movement of the lice prior to and post-mating, correlating with the appearance of head erosions and detrimental changes in physiological integrity. Food consumption of the fish increased as the lice moulted to the adult stage and gravid female lice settled in a posterior location on the fish, subsequently reducing the impact of infection and allowing recovery of the skin damage. However, the impact of preadults was limited, as the decrease in food consumption of fish at 21 d post-infection had no effect on either the specific growth rate or condition factor of the fish. Furthermore, the intensity of lice infections at each of the sample days was not correlated with food consumption, specific growth rate or any of the haematological or physiological parameters measured, either before or after infection, indicating that lice intensity was independent of social dominance/subordinance. This work has provided the first evidence that infected fish can recover from the detrimental changes caused by lice infection, even when they are still infected with lice. If fish can survive the preadult stage of lice, then the mortal impact of lice infections is greatly reduced.  (+info)

Extent of gill pathology in the toadfish Tetractenos hamiltoni caused by Naobranchia variabilis (Copepoda: Naobranchiidae). (4/744)

Sanguinivorous Naobranchia variabilis prefer the first gill arch, external hemibranch and anterior end of the gill arch. The smallest N. variabilis observed attached to fish by a thin filament which connects fused tips of second maxillae to a 'plug' inserted into the gill tissue. Second maxillae enlarge to encircle and increasingly compress the gill filament, which results in a thin layer of epithelium and connective tissue overlying the cartilaginous supporting bar. Early juveniles cause little tissue proliferation, but the extent of proliferated epithelial and connective tissue (PR) adjacent to the maxillae increases from late juveniles to subadult and adult copepods. Most variation in length of gill filament damage (PL, proliferated and compressed tissue) among age classes is explained by maxilla length (ML, length of compressed gill filament); adult trunk width (TRW) explains an extra, small amount of variation, but not trunk length (TRL) or total fish length (TL). Most variation in ML is explained by TRW of adults, subadults and late juveniles, and TRL of early juveniles. PR is explained by TRW for adults, but by ML for other ages. These patterns are due to elongation of the juvenile trunk during growth and lateral expansion of adult egg pouches during maturation. Up to 38 N. variabilis, average (avg.) = 9.3, infected individual Tetractenos hamiltoni and damaged up to 3.4% (avg. 0.72%) of total filament length and 8.6% (avg. 2.1%) of gill filaments per fish.  (+info)

Regional specification during embryogenesis in the inarticulate brachiopod Discinisca. (5/744)

The process of embryogenesis is described for the inarticulate brachiopod Discinisca strigata of the family Discinidae. A fate map has been constructed for the early embryo. The animal half of the egg forms the dorsal ectoderm of the apical and mantle lobes. The vegetal half forms mesoderm and endoderm and is the site of gastrulation; it also forms the ectoderm of the ventral regions of the apical and mantle lobes of the larva. The plane of the first cleavage goes through the animal-vegetal axis of the egg along the future plane of bilateral symmetry of the larva. The timing of regional specification in these embryos was examined by isolating animal, vegetal, or lateral regions at different times from the 2-cell stage through gastrulation. Animal halves isolated at the 8-cell and blastula stages formed an epithelial vesicle and did not gastrulate. When these halves were isolated from blastulae they formed the cell types typical of apical and mantle lobes. Vegetal halves isolated at all stages gastrulated and formed a more or less normal larva; the only defect these larvae had was the lack of an apical tuft, which normally forms from cells at the animal pole of the embryo. When lateral isolates were created at all developmental stages, these halves gastrulated. Cuts which separated presumptive anterior and posterior regions generated isolates at the 4-cell and blastula stages that formed essentially normal larvae; however, at the midgastrula stage these halves formed primarily anterior or posterior structures indicating that regional specification had taken place along the anterior-posterior axis. The plane of the first cleavage, which predicts the plane of bilateral symmetry, can be shifted by either changing the cleavage pattern that generates the bilateral 16-cell blastomere configuration or by isolating embryo halves prior to, or during, the 16-cell stage. These results indicate that while the plane of the first cleavage predicts the axis of bilateral symmetry, the axis is not established until the fourth cleavage. The development of Discinisca is compared to development in the inarticulate brachiopod Glottidia of the family Lingulidae and to Phoronis in the phylum Phoronida.  (+info)

Natural copepods are superior to enriched artemia nauplii as feed for halibut larvae (Hippoglossus hippoglossus) in terms of survival, pigmentation and retinal morphology: relation to dietary essential fatty acids. (6/744)

Replicate groups of halibut larvae were fed to d 71 post-first feeding (PFF) either the marine copepod, Eurytemora velox, or Artemia nauplii doubly enriched with the marine chromist or golden algae, Schizochytrium sp., (Algamac 2000) and a commercial oil emulsion (SuperSelco). The fatty acid compositions of eyes, brains and livers from larvae fed the two diets were measured, and indices of growth, eye migration and skin pigmentation were recorded along with histological examinations of eye and liver. The docosahexaenoic acid [22:6(n-3); DHA]/eicosapentaenoic acid [20:5(n-3); EPA] ratios in Artemia nauplii enriched with the SuperSelco and Algamac 2000 were 0.4 and 1.0, respectively. The E. velox copepods were divided into two size ranges (125-250 and 250-400 microm) with the smaller size range containing the highest level of (n-3) highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA). The DHA/EPA ratios for the two size ranges of copepods were 2.0 and 0.9, respectively. The total lipids of eyes, brains and livers of larvae fed copepods had higher levels of DHA and lower levels of EPA than those of larvae fed enriched Artemia. The percentage of survival of the halibut larvae was significantly higher when copepods rather than enriched Artemia nauplii were fed, but larval specific growth rates did not differ. The indices of eye migration were high and not significantly different in larvae fed the two diets, but the percentage of larvae undergoing successful metamorphosis (complete eye migration and dorsal pigmentation) was higher in larvae fed copepods (40%) than in larvae fed enriched Artemia (4%). The rod/cone ratios in histological sections of the retina were 2.5 +/- 0.7 in larvae fed copepods and 1.3 +/- 0.6 in larvae fed enriched Artemia (P < 0.01). Histological examination of the livers and intestines of the larvae were consistent with better assimilation of lipid from copepods than lipid from Artemia nauplii up to 46 d post-first feeding. Thus, marine copepods are superior to enriched Artemia as food for halibut larvae in terms of survival, eye development and pigmentation, and this superiority can be related to the level of DHA in the feed.  (+info)

Polymorphism and evolution of collagenolytic serine protease genes in crustaceans. (7/744)

Two genomic DNA fragments encoding crustacean collagenolytic serine protease genes show coding fragments that span 1522-1526 base pairs and contain seven exons encoding the complete amino acid sequence of two enzymes, CHYA and CHYB. As in serine protease genes from other organisms, the region coding for the residues around the active site is split by two introns. Although the introns differ from those of other organisms in size and nucleotide sequence, their number and location are more or less the same as found in mammalian chymotrypsin or elastase genes that evolved lately, but different for trypsin genes. Meanwhile, the junction that occurs between the propeptide and the maturation site is only found in the shrimp genes. This is also the case for the junction located 13 amino acids after the active site aspartic acid in these genes. Between 40 and 50 copies of the genes are reported by Southern analysis. Seven different genes within ChyA Pv family present 0-6% base changes, whereas five different genes belonging to ChyB Pv family show changes of up to 27% in the short studied portion of exon 4. This last family presents a mosaic organization of the coding parts, which are also expressed in the hepatopancreas of the shrimp as the variant PVC5 cDNA.  (+info)

The structure of a glycosylated protein hormone responsible for sex determination in the isopod, Armadillidium vulgare. (8/744)

Two glycoforms (AH1 and AH2) of androgenic hormone, and its corresponding hormone precursor derived from HPLC-purified androgenic gland extract from the woodlouse Armadillidium vulgare were fully characterized by microsequencing and mass spectrometry. The amino-acid sequences of the two glycoforms were identical; they consist of two peptide chains, A and B, of 29 and 44 amino acids, respectively, with chain A carrying one N-glycosylated moiety on Asn18. The two chains are linked by two disulfide bridges. Glycoforms were only differentiated by the size and heterogeneity of the glycan chain. The androgenic hormone precursor (16.5 kDa) was shown to contain the sequence of chains A and B from the androgenic hormone, connected by a C-peptide (50 amino acids). These results were confirmed by matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight (MALDI-TOF) analysis performed on a single hypertrophied androgenic gland. When injected into young females, both glycoforms of the androgenic hormone were able to override genetic sex-determination. In invertebrates, there is no other example where sex-differentiation is controlled by a protein hormone that is not synthesized by the gonads but by a special gland. A functional comparison with two other hormones which are believed to play a role in sex determination, i.e. ecdysone in insects and anti-Mullerian hormone in mammals, is presented. Work is in progress to clone and characterize the gene encoding androgenic hormone, moreover special attention is devoted to its regulatory regions, putative targets for the Wolbachia action.  (+info)

A study on the distribution of ostracods in small freshwater habitats of the province of Parma was conducted from May 2004 to December 2005. Vernal pools, ponds, shallow lakes, fountains, springs, ditches, canals, and streams were among the most common types of aquatic systems included in this survey. Altogether, 90 sites located between 24 and 1557 m a.s.l. were visited, and 125 samples were collected. 41 samples did not contain ostracods, and 7 samples were not considered because only immature specimens or empty valves were found. Consequently, 77 samples from 58 sites were analysed. Whenever possible, ostracod identification was done at the species level based on the morphology of both valves and limbs. Thirty-eight taxa from 20 genera belonging to the families Candonidae, Ilyocyprididae, Cyprididae, and Notodromadidae were recorded. This roughly accounts for one-third of the estimated number of non-marine ostracod species in Italy. Scanning electron microscopy images of valves are provided. ...
The Stomatopoda make up an order of crustaceans that have evolved for more than 400 million years since they emerged from their haplocarid ancestors. In previous phylogenetic studies based on morphological characters, seven superfamilies and 19 families were erected for more than 400 extant stomatopod species. Prior to this study, no effort was made to investigate the interrelationships among stomatopod superfamilies using molecular markers. In this study, 18s rDNA, 28s rDNA, and COI genes of 25 stomatopod species from 10 families and four superfamilies were sequenced to build a molecular phylogeny for these stomatopods. Whereas some interfamilial relationships are in congruence with previous studies, the deep structure of the fully resolved molecular phylogeny reconstructed in the present study is fundamentally different. Two previously proposed sister clades, the smashers and the spearers, were collapsed in the molecular tree. Hemisquilidae, other than closely related to other families from ...

Seven-day-old mysids were exposed to the nominal E2 concentrations of 31.3, 62.5, 125, 250 and 500 microg/l for 14 days. The total length and the body weight of mysids significantly decreased relative to the controls when exposed to 62.5, 250 and 500 microg/l E2 for 14 days. Moreover, the carapace length significantly decreased in the 500 microg/l E2 treatment groups. No significant differences ...
Neogene diversity history in the world center of biodiversity known as the Indo-Australian Archipelago (IAA) or the Coral Triangle remains poorly understood. Of particular interest is the recently reported Pliocene diversity jump that is considered to have established the present-day biodiversity level of the region needs rigorous inspections. We investigated Neogene fossil marine ostracods from Java, Indonesia and evaluate and test the Pliocene Diversity Jump hypothesis. We found a significant diversity increase from the late Miocene to the Pliocene, supporting the hypothesis. At the same time, there are considerable differences in depositional environments between the Miocene and Pliocene samples. Although it is unlikely that the main reason of the diversity increase is due to this paleoenvironmental difference, further samples and data from the IAA hotspot region are needed for more rigorous inspections. Our comparison between species-level and genus-level data indicated that species-level ...
This project examined the trace-element and stable-isotope composition of non-marine ostracod shells and their use in Holocene palaeoclimate reconstruction, with particular reference to mid-latitude shallow carbonate lakes. Controls on the chemical composition of shells from such environments were studied. Results were used to test the application of ostracod shell chemistry data to palaeoclimate reconstruction. Selected techniques were applied to a high resolution study of Holocene lake marl sequence. The project investigated influences on shell chemistry during formation, sedimentary deposition and extraction. A core covering approximately 9,450 to 5,800 Cal. Yr BP was taken from Cunswick Tarn, Cumbria, yielding ostracod faunal and shell chemistry data used to produce a palaeoclimate interpretation for the early Holocene. This interpretation agreed with studies showing a warm, dry early Holocene and a cooler, wetter mid-Holocene. Seasonal sampling of water and ostracods at Cunswick Tarn ...

Maxillopoda. Ostracoda. Malacostraca. Crustaceans (Crustacea) form a very large group of arthropods, usually treated as a subphylum, which includes such familiar animals as crabs, lobsters, crayfish, shrimp, krill and barnacles. The 50,000 described species range in size from Stygotantulus stocki at 0.1 mm (0.004 in), to the Japanese spider crab with a leg span of up to 12.5 ft (3.8 m) and a mass of 44 lb (20 kg). Like other arthropods, crustaceans have an exoskeleton, which they moult to grow. They are distinguished from other groups of arthropods, such as insects, myriapods and chelicerates by the possession of biramous (two-parted) limbs, and by the nauplius form of the larvae.. Most crustaceans are free-living aquatic animals, but some are terrestrial (e.g. woodlice), some are parasitic (e.g. fish lice, tongue worms) and some are sessile (e.g. barnacles). The group has an extensive fossil record, reaching back to the Cambrian, and includes living fossils such as Triops cancriformis, which ...

The name Triops comes from the Greek τρία (tría) meaning three and ὤψ (ops) meaning eye.[8] The head of T. longicaudatus bears a pair of dorsal compound eyes that lie close to each other and are nearly fused together. The compound eyes are generally sessile (not stalked). In addition, there is a naupliar ocellus (the third eye) between them. The compound eyes are on the surface of the head, but the ocellus is deep within the head. All the eyes, however, are easily visible through the shell covering of the head. Franz von Paula Schrank was the first author to use the genus name Triops,[9] coining it in his 1803 work on the fauna of Bavaria. Their German name was Dreyauge, which means three-eye. He collected and described specimens from the same locality in Regensburg from which Schäffer, another naturalist who had studied the Notostraca, obtained his specimens in the 1750s. However, other authors, starting with Louis Augustin Guillaume Bosc, had adopted the genus name Apus for ...

Description: The body of this organism is up to 8 cm long. The capitulum is protected by five large, whitish plates and several smaller ones which lie in basal whorls. The carina lacks spines, and the tough, fleshy peduncle allows for elasticity to the force of the surface. The color is dark brown and contains many calcareous spicules embedded in its surface. How to Distinguish from Similar Species: There is a pelagic goose barnacle, Lepas anatifera, frequently found in the Pacific Northwest that looks somewhat similar to M. polymerus, however is has fewer plates and only occurs in the open sea and on driftwood washed ashore. There is a closely related European species, Pollicipes pollicipes, which is cooked and served as a delicacy. However, it is now in short supply and M. polymerus has been exported from British Columbia to Portugal and Spain. Geographical Range: This species of barnacle is found as far north as Southeast Alaska to Baja California in the south. Depth Range: P. polymerus ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Analysis of the expression pattern of Mysidium columbiae wingless provides evidence for conserved mesodermal and retinal patterning processes among insects and crustaceans. AU - Duman-Scheel, Molly. AU - Pirkl, Nicole. AU - Patel, Nipam H.. PY - 2002/12/1. Y1 - 2002/12/1. N2 - The Wnt family includes a number of genes, such as wingless (wg), which encode secreted glycoproteins that function in numerous developmental patterning processes. In order to gain a better understanding of crustacean pattern formation, a wg orthologue was cloned from the malacostracan crustacean Mysidium columbiae (mysid), and the expression pattern of this gene was compared with that of Drosophila wg. Although Drosophila wg is expressed in many developing tissues, such as the ventral neuroectoderm, M. columbiae wg (mcowg) expression is detected within only a subset of these tissues. mcowg is expressed in the dorsal part of each developing segment and within the developing eye, but not within the ventral ...

For the ostracode analysis, a total of 87 samples were selected at intervals of ca. 10 cm between 0 to 865 cm depth. Due to the lack of ostracode valves, the lower part (980 865 cm) of the sediment sequence was not included in the study. The samples were oven dried at 50 °C and weighed to determine their dry weights. Sediments were disintegrated by soaking in water for 2 3 days and washed through two sieves of 0.063 mm and 0.425 mm to collect sediment with ostracode valves and eliminate the finer sediments. The residues were oven dried at 50 °C and examined under an Olympus SZX FOF stereoscopic microscope to identify the species and calculate their abundance according to the descriptions provided by Van Morkhoven (1963), Delorme (1971 a, b, c), Forester (1985) and Carreño (1990). The total ostracode abundance in each sample was calculated by adding the number of adult and juvenile valves of all the observed species. The number of adult valves of each species was counted in 10 g of dry ...

In the Crustacea section we mainly study decapods. These are animals that the non-specialist will easily classify as crustaceans.
Light-evoked intracellular voltage noise records have been obtained from Limulus eccentric cells, from threshold light intensity to an intensity .10(5) times threshold. These data are analyzed in terms of a simple adapting-bump noise model. It is shown how the model yields a data reduction procedure that slightly generalizes the familiar use of Campbells theorem for Poisson shot noise: the correlative effect of adaptation amends Campbells theorem by a single multiplicative factor, which may be estimated directly from the power spectrum of the noise data. The model also permits direct estimation of the bump shape from the power spectrum. The bump shape estimated from noise at dim light is in excellent agreement with the average shape of bumps observed directly in the dark. The data yield a bump rate that is linear with light up through about 50 times threshold intensity but that falls short of linearity by a factor of 35 at the brightest light. The bump height decreases as the -0.4 power of ...

When the nervous system receptor is resting (not being stimulated) there is a difference in charge inside and outside the cell. The difference in voltage is called the potential difference. The potential difference when the cell is at rest is called the resting potential. When a stimulus is detected the membrane becomes more permeable, so ions move in and out of the cell, altering the potential difference, this change in potential difference is called generator potential. The larger the stimulus the larger the generator potential. If the generator potential is large enough it will trigger an action potential, this is an electrical impulse along a neurone. This only happens if the generator potential reaches a certain level called the threshold level ...
Current production (ca. 14 million metric tonnes) and value (up to $60 billion) for crustaceans is significant and likely to increase further during the 21st century. Satisfactory management and handling of live crustaceans is important to safeguard the value, security, safety, and sustainability of wild-caught and aquaculture-sourced fisheries, and increasingly to foster improved welfare and public perception of both industries. Decapod crustaceans are frequently transported live and internationally over long distances, and experience anthropogenic stressors from point of capture to point of sale. Physical handling, emersion in air, and temperature fluctuations are key examples of stressors, which elicit progressive behavioral, physiological and immunological stress responses in crustaceans. Stress responses are initiated to return the individual to a state of homeostasis; if these fail, then physiological collapse, a loss of vitality and death will likely occur. There are several ways to ...

Symposium: Tapping the Power of Crustacean Transcriptomes to Address Grand Challenges in Comparative Biology. The NSFs Genomes to Phenomes (G2P) initiative is identifying key questions, such as how genetic mechanisms produce more fit phenotypes (adaptive evolution) and how genotype affects non-linear or non-additive molecular changes to produce a different phenotype. There is an emerging consensus behind the need to understand the mechanisms that govern the genome to phenome continuum, which requires integration across all levels of biological organization. As the product of the genome, a transcriptome is a key driver of phenotype and thus serves as a vital link between genes and the environment. A relatively small number of decapod crustacean species have been intensively studied at the molecular level; their availability, experimental tractability, and economic relevance factor into the selection of a particular species as a model. Transcriptomics, using high-throughput next generation ...

Specification of the germ line is an essential event during the embryonic development of sexually reproducing animals, as germ line cells are uniquely capable of giving rise to the next generation. Animal germ cells arise through either inheritance of a specialized, maternally supplied cytoplasm called germ plasm or though inductive signaling by somatic cells. Our understanding of germ cell determination is based largely on a small number of model organisms. To better understand the evolution of germ cell specification, we are investigating this process in the amphipod crustacean Parhyale hawaiensis. Experimental evidence from previous studies demonstrated that Parhyale germ cells are specified through inheritance of a maternally supplied cytoplasmic determinant; however, this determinant has not been identified. Here we show that the one-cell stage Parhyale embryo has a distinct cytoplasmic region that can be identified by morphology as well as the localization of germ line-associated RNAs. Removal

Branchiopod crustaceans are represented by fairy, tadpole, and clam shrimps (Anostraca, Notostraca, Laevicaudata, Spinicaudata), which typically inhabit temporary freshwater bodies, and water fleas (Cladoceromorpha), which live in all kinds of freshwater and occasionally marine environments [1, 2]. The earliest branchiopods occur in the Cambrian, where they are represented by complete body fossils from Sweden such as Rehbachiella kinnekullensis [3] and isolated mandibles preserved as small carbonaceous fossils [4-6] from Canada. The earliest known continental branchiopods are associated with hot spring environments [7] represented by the Early Devonian Rhynie Chert of Scotland (410 million years ago) and include possible stem-group or crown-group Anostraca, Notostraca, and clam shrimps or Cladoceromorpha [8-10], which differmorphologically fromtheirmodern counterparts [1, 2, 11]. Here we report the discovery of an ephemeral pool branchiopod community from the 365-million-year-old Strud locality ...

Crustaceans (Crustacea /krʌˈsteɪʃə/) form a large, diverse arthropod taxon which includes such animals as crabs, lobsters, crayfish, shrimps, prawns, krill, woodlice, and barnacles.[1] The crustacean group can be treated as a subphylum under the clade Mandibulata; because of recent molecular studies it is now well accepted that the crustacean group is paraphyletic, and comprises all animals in the clade Pancrustacea other than hexapods.[2] Some crustaceans are more closely related to insects and the other hexapods than they are to certain other crustaceans. The 67,000 described species range in size from Stygotantulus stocki at 0.1 mm (0.004 in), to the Japanese spider crab with a leg span of up to 3.8 m (12.5 ft) and a mass of 20 kg (44 lb). Like other arthropods, crustaceans have an exoskeleton, which they moult to grow. They are distinguished from other groups of arthropods, such as insects, myriapods and chelicerates, by the possession of biramous (two-parted) limbs, and by their larval ...
Fluorescence of Cypridina oxyluciferin is greatly enhanced when it is bound to luciferase; the spectrum is thereby shifted, so that it corresponds precisely to the emission spectrum characteristic of the bioluminescentoxidation of luciferin. Thus the oxyluciferin-luciferase complex is the lightemitter. The binding is equimolar, with dissociation constant KD equal to 3x 10-7 mole per liter. The molecular weight of the luciferase, according to three different methods, is between 52,000 and 57,000; molecular activities of luciferase for the bioluminescence reaction and for the hydrolysis of oxy-luciferin are 1600 and 2 per minute, respectively. ...

Crustaceans possess a diverse array of specialized limbs. Although shifts in Hox gene expression domains have been postulated to play a role in generating this limb diversity, little functional data have been provided to understand the precise roles of Hox genes during crustacean development. We used a combination of CRISPR/Cas9-targeted mutagenesis and RNAi knockdown to decipher the function of the six Hox genes expressed in the developing mouth and trunk of the amphipod Parhyale hawaiensis. These experimentally manipulated animals display specific and striking homeotic transformations. We found that abdominal-A (abd-A) and Abdominal-B (Abd-B) are required for proper posterior patterning, with knockout of Abd-B resulting in an animal with thoracic type legs along what would have been an abdomen, and abd-A disruption generating a simplified body plan characterized by a loss of specialization in both abdominal and thoracic appendages. In the thorax, Ubx is necessary for gill development and for ...

The first antennae of arthropods are divisible into two main types, viz. (1) segmented antennae and (2) annulated antennae. In the first type the antenna consists of a variable number of segments, each having intrinsic musculature. The antennae of the Ohilopoda, Diplopoda, Pauropoda, Symphyla, Collembola, and Thysanura Entognatha all pertain to this type; also, the first antennae of many Copepoda and Ostracoda.. In the second type the antenna consists of a peduncle or protopodite composed of one or more segments, each with intrinsic musculature. Distally it bears an annulated flagellum, or a pair of flagella, devoid of intrinsic muscles and whose movements are effected by muscles originating within the peduncle. The first antennae of the Crustacea Malacostraca and the antennae of the Thysanura Ectognatha and of all the Insecta Pterygota belong to this type.. The greatly elongated antennae of the Schizotarsia are intermediate between these two types. They are composed of an immense number of ...

Nitrogenous wastes including ammonia-N, nitrite-N, and nitrate-N are increasingly becoming a global issue in aquatic ecosystems due to escalating anthropogenic activities and are a ubiquitous concern in aquaculture. These pollutants are interrelated via the nitrification cycle, with the direct metabolic product ammonia-N generally being the most toxic with high species specificity. Furthermore, while environmental factors influencing nitrogenous waste toxicity are similar, the causative underlying mechanisms are often substantially different. In this review, we focus on decapod crustaceans due to their high commercial value and likelihood of encountering these pollutants in their benthic or near-benthic habitat. While a large body of publications exists in this area, to date a comprehensive literature review on relative toxicities of all three nitrogenous wastes, physiological consequences, and adaptive mechanisms of crustaceans is lacking. Understanding these processes will likely have ...
Crabs arent the only crustaceans in the sea! Barnacles are small, rounded animals generally found on rocky reefs or shores. They are also seen attached to boats. Barnacles have a hard shell, and use their feet to capture small animals called plankton that swim in the oceans. They usually live in large groups, and are sometimes covered up by other sea life. Most barnacles look like rocks, but some, like the Short-stalked Goose Barnacle, are much prettier. Shrimp are also crustaceans. Like crabs, shrimp live near rocks and reefs. They have a longer body rather than a round one, and range from less than an inch to 6 inches in length. Grabhams Cleaner Shrimp has a very important job. It attracts fish with its white antennae and legs. When the fish gets close, it grabs the fish and removes parasites and cleans the fish!

Being the most numerous, diverse and ubiquitous group of animals, the arthropods have established a wide array of interactions with bacteria. Despite their considerable potential in agriculture, health-care and pest control, exploration of these associations is limited to a few well studied associations (Bourtzis & Miller 2003), while comprehensive understanding of interactions between bacteria and arthropods generally remain underexplored, due to lack of appropriate model organisms. Our work in recent years has been therefore focused on bacterial associations in terrestrial isopod crustaceans (Fig. 1), a diverse and ubiquitous group of arthropods, with considerable ecological role, well-known biology and undemanding maintenance under laboratory conditions.. In order to expand our knowledge on isopod-bacteria associations we used a wide array of microscopic approaches on crustacean tissues including FE-SEM, TEM and fluorescence microscopy with structured illumination in combination with ...
The intercellular relationships in the ommatidia of the lateral eye of Limulus have been investigated. The distal process of the eccentric cell gives origin to microvilli which interdigitate with the microvilli of the retinular cells. Therefore, both types of visual cells contribute to form the rhabdom and may have an analogous photoreceptor function. Quintuple-layered junctions are found within the rhabdom at the lines of demarcation between adjoining microvilli, whether the microvilli originate from a single retinular cell, from two adjacent retinular cells, or from a retinular cell and the eccentric cell. Furthermore, quintuple-layered junctions between the eccentric cell and the tips of the microvilli of the retinular cells occur at the boundary between the distal process and the rhabdom. These findings are interpreted to indicate that the rhabdom provides an extensive electrotonic junction relating retinular cells to one another and to the eccentric cell. Quintuple-layered junctions between ...

Odor signals mediate a variety of behaviors in animals across a diversity of taxa. Despite dramatic morphological differences between animals from different taxa, several important features of olfactory system organization and processing are similar across animals. Because of this similarity, a number of different organisms including mammals, insects, and decapod crustaceans serve as valuable model systems for understanding general principles of olfactory processing. As in other organisms, including both vertebrates and insects, the chemosensory system of decapod crustaceans is organized into multiple anatomically distinct neuronal pathways. The two main pathways (the aesthetasc/ olfactory lobe pathway and non-aesthetasc/ lateral antennular neuropil pathway) originate in different populations of antennular sensilla and project to different neuropils in the brain. The functional significance of this parallel organization is not well understood in crustaceans or in many other species. Although in some

Information is encoded in neural circuits using both graded and action potentials, converting between them within single neurons and successive processing layers. This conversion is accompanied by information loss and a drop in energy efficiency. We investigate the biophysical causes of this loss of information and efficiency by comparing spiking neuron models, containing stochastic voltage-gated Na+ and K+ channels, with generator potential and graded potential models lacking voltage-gated Na+ channels. We identify three causes of information loss in the generator potential that are the by-product of action potential generation: (1) the voltage-gated Na+ channels necessary for action potential generation increase intrinsic noise and (2) introduce non-linearities, and (3) the finite duration of the action potential creates a footprint in the generator potential that obscures incoming signals. These three processes reduce information rates by ~50% in generator potentials, to ~3 times that of ...

A theory of movement perception has been proposed to explain the optomotor responses of the housefly (Musca domestica), and this has been tested by McCann & Maginitie (1965). The present study was made in order to ascertain if the anatomical and physiological properties of the compound eye are commensurate with those postulated by the model. The three properties studied were the inter-ommatidial angle, the receptive field of the retinula cells, and the relationship between light intensity and the magnitude of the generator potential. The angle between the axes of adjacent ommatidia was measured anatomically. This varies with the position in the eye but has a mean value of 3.9° in the horizontal plane and 2.4° in the vertical. During dark adaptation the secondary pigment cells contract by about 5 pm at either end, moving the pigment back away from the lenses and also exposing the focal region of the ommatidium. The receptive field of single retinula cells was measured electrophysiologically. ...
Three species of the amphipod genus Syrrhoe are described from the North Atlantic. The differences between these species are primarily the patterns of serration of the posterior margins of pleonite 3 and urosomite 1 and 2: Syrrhoe affinis has a wide convex space on the posterior margin between the epimeron 3 and the dorsal serration. In Syrrhoe crenulata and Syrrhoe anneheleneae sp. nov. there is only a small notch on the posterior margin of pleonite 3. Syrrhoe anneheleneae sp. nov., otherwise similar to S. crenulata, has an additional serration on the posterior margin of urosomite 1. The inter- and intraspecific distances analyzed from COI confirm the morphological species concept of North Atlantic Syrrhoe.

Takhteev V.V. 2019. On the current state of taxonomy of the Baikal Lake amphipods (Crustacea, Amphipoda) and the typological ways of constructing their system // Arthropoda Selecta. Vol.28. No.3: 374-402 [in English].. Department of Biological and Soil Science at Irkutsk State University, Karl Marx St. 1, Irkutsk 664003, Russia. E-mail: [email protected] doi: 10.15298/arthsel.28.3.03. ABSTRACT. The state of macro-systematics of the Lake Baikal amphipods (354 species and subspecies) is critically reviewed. Their division into several families is advocated, despite the fact that all of them are nested within the molecular phylogenetic tree of the genus Gammarus. A historical essay of the arrangement of the Baikal amphipods to families by previous authors is provided. In the late XX to early XXI century a difficult situation arose with conflicting versions of the macrosystem: by Takhteev [2000, 2012, 2015] and Kamaltynov [1999, 2001, 2009]. The latter author did not describe any species using ...

  • Overall, the importance of small pelagic crustaceans in linking larger marine animals to the microscopic marine food web is very difficult to measure but hard to exaggerate. (eol.org)
  • A common marine crustacean has shown researchers that it's all set to beat climate change -- the males will get more attractive to the females, with a resulting population explosion. (gizmodo.com.au)
  • W hile the main focus of most marine aquariums is either fish or cnidarians (anemones, corals, soft corals, zoanthids, etc.), many aquarists include ornamental crustaceans to provide variety and subtle focus points. (reefkeeping.com)
  • The results of the tests aren't exactly concrete proof that crustaceans feel pain, but the researchers say that the findings were enough that they will change how they treat and handle specimens in their laps and urge others to do the same. (slashgear.com)
  • Satisfactory management and handling of live crustaceans is important to safeguard the value, security, safety, and sustainability of wild-caught and aquaculture-sourced fisheries, and increasingly to foster improved welfare and public perception of both industries. (gu.se)
