Neurones of the motor nerve net of the jellyfish Cyanea capillata were axotomized, and voltage-clamped using the whole-cell configuration of the patch-clamp technique.. Outward currents were blocked by a combination of extracellular 4-aminopyridine (4-AP) and intracellular Cs+, tetraethylammonium (TEA+) and 4-AP.. Under normal conditions, the inward current consisted of a fast, transient current which could be abolished by removal of extracellular Na+ and whose reversal potential was dependent on the extracellular Na+ concentration.. This current was completely insensitive to tetrodotoxin (TTX), saxitoxin (STX) and conotoxin GIIIA but could be blocked by extracellular Cd2+, lidocaine, W7 [N-(6 aminohexyl)-5-chloro-1-napthalenesulphonamide] and verapamil.. Inactivation was voltage-dependent with a Vh of −15mV, and was unaffected by veratridine, batrachotoxin (BTX), sea anemone toxin and scorpion (Leiurus) venom. Reactivation required repolarization to a negative membrane potential for 12 ms for ...
Jellyfish are important components of marine food webs and form problematic blooms that negatively impact human enterprise. Jellyfish of the genus Aurelia (Class Scyphozoa) are common bloom-formers in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM). Aurelia have a multi-modal life cycle where the perennial polyp produces seasonal medusae. Abiotic tolerance ranges and limits strongly influence the distribution of marine species but are unknown for most jellyfish species. Tolerance limits for survival are crucial to understanding present polyp distribution and how distribution may change in climate change scenarios. We sampled and barcoded two Aurelia species from the GoM, namely Aurelia sp. 9 and a possible new species found offshore (Aurelia sp. new). Planulae obtained from one medusa of Aurelia sp. new, and five medusae of Aurelia sp. 9 were used to establish laboratory cultures. Polyps of Aurelia coerulea, a species native to Japan but introduced in North America, Australia, and Europe, were obtained from a local aquarium,
The Scyphozoa is a class of the phylum Cnidaria, sometimes referred to as the "true jellyfish". There are 200 species. The name Scyphozoa comes from a Greek word which refers to the cup shape of the jellyfish. The medusa form is the dominant life form, as opposed to the polyp. They eat plankton, small crustaceans and fish larvae, which they capture using stinging cells called nematocysts. The nematocysts are attached to the tentacles that hang down from the edge of the umbrella dome. Scyphozoans have an internal jelly-like material. They have no hard parts, no head, and no specialized organs for respiration or excretion. Unlike other types of jellyfish, scyphozoans lack a velum, a circular membrane which propels other jellyfish through the water. Scyphozoans move through the water by contracting and relaxing the muscles of their umbrella. ...
Molecular analyses have led to an increased knowledge of the number and distribution of morphologically cryptic species in the worlds oceans and, concomitantly, to the identification of non-indigenous species (NIS). Traditional taxonomy and accurate delimitation of species life histories and autecology lag far behind, however, even for the most widely distributed taxa, such as the moon jellyfish Aurelia (Cnidaria, Scyphozoa) species complex. Here we analysed mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) and nuclear 28S ribosomal RNA (28S) gene sequences to assign polyps, ephyrae, and medusae collected in the Mediterranean Sea to different phylogenetic species. We find evidence for three Aurelia species, none of which are referable to the type species of the genus, Aurelia aurita (Linnaeus, 1758), and describe the anatomical, morphometric, and developmental variation within and between them. We identify Aurelia coerulea von Lendenfeld, 1884 and Aurelia solida Browne, 1905 as established ...
Title:Crude Venom from Nematocysts of the Jellyfish Pelagia noctiluca as a Tool to Study Cell Physiology. VOLUME: 15 ISSUE: 2. Author(s):Rossana Morabito, Giuseppina L. Spada, Rosalia Crupi, Emanuela Esposito and Angela Marino. Affiliation:Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences, Viale F. Stagno DAlcontres 31, 98166 Messina, Italy.. Keywords:Biological assays, crude venom, jellyfish, nematocysts, Pelagia noctiluca.. Abstract:Marine animals represent a source of novel bioactive compounds considered as a good research model, whose mechanism of action is intriguing and still under debate. Among stinging animals, Cnidarians differentiated highly specialized cells, termed nematocytes, containing a capsule fluid with toxins and an inverted tubule, synergistically responsible for mechanisms of defence and predation. Such compounds include proteins and secondary metabolites with toxic action. With the aim of better elucidating the effects of Cnidarian venom upon cell targets, this short ...
Identifying Features: The Moon Jellyfish (Aurelia labiata) ranges from 25 to 40 cm (9.8 to 15.8 in) in diameter and can be easily recognized by the four horseshoe-shaped rings on its bell. A. labiata is not perfectly circular, but has multiple ridges around its bell between its rhopalia. It also has four oral arms leading up to its mouth and many short tentacles all around its bell. A. labiata may be confused with A. aurita, a closely related species found along the eastern Atlantic coast of Northern Europe and the western Atlantic coast of North America in New England and Eastern Canada.. Habitat: Moon jellyfish are found along the west coast of North America all the way from southern Alaska to southern California and as far out into the open ocean as Hawaii. Moon Jellyfish can be found up to 1000m (3280ft) below sea level in waters ranging from -6 to 31 degrees celsius; but often float near the surface, especially in bays and harbours. In the summer and through autumn, moon jelly fish are ...
Lions mane jellyfish (Cyanea capillata) stings cause severe pain and can lead to dangerous systemic effects, including Irukandji-like syndrome. As is the case for most cnidarian stings, recommended medical protocols in response to such stings lack rigorous scientific support. In this study, we sought to evaluate potential first aid care protocols using previously described envenomation models that allow for direct measurements of venom activity. We found that seawater rinsing, the most commonly recommended method of tentacle removal for this species, induced significant increases in venom delivery, while rinsing with vinegar or Sting No More® Spray did not. Post-sting temperature treatments affected sting severity, with 40 min of hot-pack treatment reducing lysis of sheeps blood (in agar plates), a direct representation of venom load, by over 90%. Ice pack treatment had no effect on sting severity. These results indicate that sting management protocols for Cyanea need to be revised immediately to
Lions mane jellyfish (Cyanea capillata), also known as Hair Jelly and Sea Blubber, are a type of jellyfish which are mostly found in north Atlantic and north Pacific waters. The stings of these jellyfish are painful but not fatal. The species is found near the coast of the U.S. shore line.. The lions mane jellyfish can grow up to 2 m width by its pileus ("bell") and its tentacles up to 30 m long. The largest Lions Mane Jelly recorded was 120 FT, but most jellyfish are far smaller, usually some 30 cm by pileus width and up to 50 cm by tentacle length. It eats mainly plankton and is itself eaten by sunfish, sea turtles and some seabirds. Like all jellyfish, it lives only for one year.. A group of jellyfish is called a smack.. ...

This study was performed to explore other potential mechanisms underlying hemolysis in addition to pore-formation of tentacle extract (TE) from the jellyfish Cyanea capillata. A dose-dependent increase of hemolysis was observed in rat erythrocyte suspensions and the hemolytic activity of TE was enhanced in the presence of Ca2+, which was attenuated by Ca2+ channel blockers (Diltiazem, Verapamil and Nifedipine). Direct intracellular Ca2+ increase was observed after TE treatment by confocal laser scanning microscopy, and the Ca2+ increase could be depressed by Diltiazem. The osmotic protectant polyethylenglycol (PEG) significantly blocked hemolysis with a molecular mass exceeding 4000 Da. These results support a pore-forming mechanism of TE in the erythrocyte membrane, which is consistent with previous studies by us and other groups. The concentration of malondialdehyde (MDA), an important marker of lipid peroxidation, increased dose-dependently in rat erythrocytes after TE treatment, while in vitro
Their behavior depends on a number of external conditions, in particular, food supply. Aurelia swim by pulsations of the bell-shaped upper part of the anima. Swimming mostly functions to keep the animal at the surface of the water rather than to make progress through the water. They swim horizontally, keeping the bell near the surface at all times. This allows the tenticles to be spread over the largest possible area, in order to better catch food. The coronal muscle allows the animal to pulsate in order to move. Impulses to contract are sent by way of the subumbrellar nerve net and are nervous in origin. The Moon Jelly has rhopalial centers, which allow it to control the pulsations. As the oxygen rate in the water goes down, so too does the resiratory rate of the jellyfish.. ...
Rhizostomae or Rhizostomeae is an order of jellyfish. Species of this order have neither tentacles nor other structures at the bells edges. Instead, they have eight highly branched oral arms, along which there are suctorial minimouth orifices. (This is in contrast to other scyphozoans, which have four of these arms.) These oral arms become fused as they approach the central part of the jellyfish. The mouth of the animal is also subdivided into minute pores that are linked to coelenteron. Jellyfish species fished on a commercial basis for human consumption (both as a delicacy and for use in traditional medicine) are all from this order and include members of the families Catostylidae, Lobonematidae, Rhizostomatidae and Stomolophidae. The jellyfish are typically dried and/or salted. In China, which was the first country documented to use jellyfish as food, this has been practiced at least since the year 300 CE, but they are also commonly consumed in Japan (the largest consumer of jellyfish ...
Although it is generally appreciated that a fully grown aquatic animal will swim faster than when it was smaller, the precise relationship between speed and body size over a life history is dictated by scale-dependent hydrodynamics. Much of our understanding for this scale dependency comes from comparisons between species that differ in body mass by many orders of magnitude (e.g. Daniel et al., 1992; Lighthill, 1975; Wu, 1977). These comparisons illustrate that thrust is generated primarily by viscous force at the size of spermatozoa, inertial force at the size of adult fish and a combination of these forces at intermediate sizes. Such broad comparisons are useful for understanding the major fluid forces that play a role in the hydrodynamics of a growing animal but cannot provide predictive explanations for how swimming performance (e.g. speed and cost of transport) should change over the ontogeny of individual species.. Ontogenetic changes in swimming kinematics have been most thoroughly ...

The husbandry of jellyfish started in 1965 at the Ueno Zoos Aquarium in Tokyo just by a lucky chance. In one of the reserve tanks ephyra larvae of the Moon jellyfish (Aurelia aurita) were one day observed, quite unexpectedly. These creatures awoke the interest of the aquarium curator and he succeeded by trial and error to keep and exhibit this jellyfish continuously. It was the first time that an ...
The jellyfish are coming!. According to the Marine Conservation Society, increasing numbers of jellyfish - presumably encouraged by the hot weather - are currently bobbing along Britains coastline.. This probably means many bathers will be having a painful aquatic encounter in the next couple of weeks - and some unlucky punters will probably get treated in a novel way.. Help on tap. Thats because lots of people still believe its a good idea to wee on someone whos been stung by a jellyfish.. Bizarre as it sounds, this is true. As temperatures soar this weekend, hundreds of British beachgoers will have their hands poised on their zippers, gunslinger-style, ready to pull down at a moments notice and help anyone running from the water in pain.. Dangerous cure. The hoary old myth that urinating on jellyfish stings lessens the pain is still surprisingly popular in the UK, despite medically making no sense at all. (Really, think about it. Its like saying you should vomit on someone with ...
The dinoflagellate Noctiluca scintillans (Noctiluca) has the ability to reproduce sexually, which may help to increase or restore its population size during periods of blooms or environmental stress. Here, we documented for the first time a marine ciliate Strombidium sp. that feeds on Noctilucas progametes undergoing stages 5 to 9 of nuclear division. This ciliate frequently swam on or around gametogenic and some vegetative Noctiluca cells. The ciliates associated with gametogenic cells had significantly lower swimming speed and changed direction more frequently than those associated with vegetative cells, which overall increased their time spent around the food patches (progametes). This trophic interaction constitutes an upside-down predator -prey link, in which ciliates within the typical size range of Noctiluca prey, become the predators. Based on the phylogenetic tree (maximum-likelihood), there are 14 environmental clones similar to Strombidium sp. found in other coastal waters, where ...
Abstract: An evaluation was performed to investigate the use of contact plates in place of Petri plates to perform environmental monitoring settle plates. A Petri plate has approximately 2.5 times the surface area of a contact plate and a different agar profile for exposure to air. Petri plates also have plastic walls that extend above the agar surface and may affect air flows. To evaluate the possible use of contact plates, analysis of capture and recovery of bioburden was performed in a number of different environments, with differing numbers of exposed plates. Overall, a good correlation was shown when two contact plates were used as a substitute for one Petri plate with a 4-hour exposure time. The ability to use contact plates for a settle plate test allows the use of a single consumable, the contact plate, to be stocked for environmental monitoring testing ...
Complete larval development from newly hatched larvae up to the juvenile stage was successfully achieved in the Australian shovel-nosed lobster Thenus australiensis under laboratory conditions. The larvae of this species passed through four phyllosoma stages (each stage has a single instar), and developed into the first juvenile stage via a post-larval, nisto stage. The shortest and mean durations from hatching to metamorphosis at a water temperature of 25°C were 32 and 38 days, respectively. Morphologies of body and appendages for all four phyllosoma stages and the nisto stage were described. The phyllosomas were fed exclusively on the jellyfish Aurelia aurita throughout their culture. Our results indicate that jellyfish may be a viable diet for T. australiensis phyllosomas in culture and may therefore be useful for commercial-scale lobster production.. ...

The freshwater jellyfish found in Wisconsin are one of several species of Craspedacusta native to China. Two species (C. sowerbii and C. sinensis) live in the Yangtze River - the worlds third longest river and one so vast it makes the Wisconsin River seem like a trout stream! Freshwater jellyfish were first reported in North America as early as 1884. Sightings in Wisconsin date back to 1969. Much more remains to be learned about these fascinating creatures. Although they probably evolved from estuarine species, themselves descendents of ocean jellyfish, little is known about the evolution of freshwater jellyfish. Thats because jellyfish leave no fossil records.. ...
A team of scientists from the University of Texas Marine Science Institute, including students from California and China, assessed the effects of crude oil exposure on adult and larval gelatinous zooplankton species - some commonly referred to as jellyfish.
Cnidarian sexual reproduction often involves a complex life cycle with both polyp and medusa stages. For example, in Scyphozoa (jellyfish) and Cubozoa (box jellies) a larva swims until it finds a good site, and then becomes a polyp. This grows normally but then absorbs its tentacles and splits horizontally into a series of disks that become juvenile medusae, a process called strobilation. The juveniles swim off and slowly grow to maturity, while the polyp re-grows and may continue strobilating periodically. The adults have gonads in the gastroderm, and these release ova and sperm into the water in the breeding season.[9][10] This phenomenon of succession of differently organized generations (one asexually reproducing, sessile polyp, followed by a free-swimming medusa or a sessile polyp that reproduces sexually)[25] is sometimes called "alternation of asexual and sexual phases" or "metagenesis", but should not be confused with the alternation of generations as found in plants. Shortened forms of ...
Jellyfish-induced gill pathology relies upon occasional diagnostic observations yet the extent and impact of jellyfish blooms on aquaculture may be significant. Idiopathic gill lesions are often observed in apparently healthy fish. This study exposed Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) smolts to macerated Cyanea capillata at 2.5 and 5 g/L for 2 hr under controlled laboratory conditions. Blood chemistry and gill histopathology were examined over a subsequent 4-week period. Fish showed an acute response to the presence of jellyfish, including characteristic external "whiplash" discoloration of the skin and acute increases in blood electrolytes and CO2 concentration; however, these were resolved within 4 days after exposure ...
Rhizostoma pulmo has a solid appearance. It varies in colour from whitish pale or yellow to shades of green, blue, pink or brown. The umbrella margin is divided into a number of semi-circular lobe like extensions (marginal velar lappets). Beneath the bell is a large manubrium, consisting of a short pillar-like basal stem, followed by sixteen, three winged epaulets with frilled mouth openings. It then divides into four pairs of oral arms that consist of three winged portions, followed by three winged elongated terminal appendages (Russell, 1970). Mature males have blue gonads whereas, ripe females are reddish brown. When exposed to air their nematocyst warts give the umbrella surface a matt like appearance. The large crustacean Hyperia galba can be found throughout the body of the jellyfish and more commonly in its gastric or gonad pouches. ...
Jellyfish are beautiful deep sea animals from the Cnidaria family. Jellyfish can be considered both deadly and helpful. Read through to know some facts like these about jellyfish.
Though some reports suggest jellyfish are taking over the worlds oceans, long-term records of these gelatinous animals fail to show a global increase in jellyfish blooms likely caused by pollution, warming, coastal development and other human influences.
(PhysOrg.com) -- Over-fished commercial stocks of plankton-eating fish have been replaced in several locations by jellyfish species. This appears to be something of a paradox because fish move quickly and can see their prey, which suggests their capture of prey should be much more efficient than for jellyfish that move slowly and have to make contact with their prey to know they are present. Now a team of scientists in Spain and the US have discovered he jellyfishes success is partly based on their large body size and its energy efficiency.

Jellyfish and lamprey eels have some of the lowest energy costs for swimming of any animal, and now scientists have figured out how they do it. Fish, humans, and boats move forward by propelling water backwards thereby generating thrust. Jellyfish and eels however are able to generate low pressure regions that help pull them through the water. The researchers hope to use this technique to design more efficient underwater vehicles.. The study tracked the movement of eels and jellyfish by adding microscopic glass beads to the water around jellyfish and eels. Original research paper published in Nature on November 3, 2015..

It is common knowledge that many animals can regenerate lost body parts. Some lizards can regrow lost tails; earthworms can be cut in two, with each piece regenerating its missing half. Surprisingly, no clear pattern seems to separate the species that can regenerate lost tissues from those that cannot. Why can some flatworms regrow a lost head when other, closely related flatworms cannot? Why can some salamanders regrow lost legs, but humans cant?. I think that the answer is related-in part-to how cells become "committed" during development, and their potential to function as stem cells to rebuild lost body parts. I use phylogenetic tools (as described earlier) to study how cell differentiation has evolved in different groups of animals. Additionally, I study the moon jellyfish Aurelia as a model organism in this research. Although Aurelia is a simple animal, it has a complex life cycle, with some stages capable of unlimited regeneration, while other stages have much more limited capabilities. ...

This isnt science fiction. Its happening now in a lab inside Virginia Techs Durham Hall, where a 600-gallon tank is regularly filled with water as small robotic jellyfish are tested for movement and energy self-creation and usage. A synthetic rubbery skin, squishy in ones hand, mimics the sleek jellyfish skin and is placed over a bowl-shaped device covered in electronics. When moving, they look weirdly alive.. The robotic creatures are called RoboJelly are being designed to operate on their own energy versus, say, sea crabs, or mollusks.. "Jellyfish are attractive candidates to mimic because of their ability to consume little energy owing to a lower metabolic rate than other marine species, survivability in varying water conditions, and possession of adequate shape for carrying a payload," Priya said. "They inhabit every major oceanic area of the world and are capable of withstanding a wide range of temperatures and in fresh and salt waters. Most species are found in shallow coastal waters, ...

Light micrograph (LM Fluorescence) of a transformed bacteria colony (Escherichia coli) containing a jellyfish gene for GFP (green fluorescent protein). GFP is a 238 amino acid protein found in the Pacific jellyfish (Aequorea victoria). It exhibits a bright green fluorescence (green bioluminescence) when exposed to ultraviolet blue light. GFP is widely used as a research tool in biology and medicine. The gene coding for GFP can be tagged to the genes of other proteins or viruses to study their movements within cells. GFP can also be used to tagged cancer cells to track their spread through the body. The purpose of both bioluminescence and GFP fluorescence in jellyfish is unknown.

In warm coastal waters around the world, swimmers can often spot large groups of jellyfish pulsing rhythmically on the seafloor. Unless properly prepared with protective clothing, it is best to steer clear of areas that Cassiopea, or upside-down jellyfish inhabit: getting too close can lead to irritating stings, even without direct contact. Now, researchers have taken a close
The lowly jellyfish, a gelatinous, free-swimming Cnidarian, is an unlikely source of scientific inspiration. Yet, in an article published in this weeks issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, researchers from Harvard, MIT, and the Xian Jiaotong University of China reported an innovative method, inspired by jellyfish tentacles, of isolating and removing tumor cells from blood samples.. This novel technology has the potential to transform cancer diagnostis by facilitating efficient retrieval and analysis of cancer cells from the bloodstream. The study developed microfluidic devices coated in a network of dangling DNA aptamers, or stable strands of synthetic DNA, that can identify and capture particles and cells. Like the tentacles of a jellyfish, which extend into water surrounding the animal to capture food particles, the protruding DNA aptamers were designed to extend into blood samples and bind to a surface protein called tyrosine kinase-7 (PTK-7). Because PTK-7 is ...

Using recently discovered fossil snapshots found in rocks more than 500 million years old, three University of Kansas researchers have described the oldest definitive jellyfish ever found. In a paper published in PLoS ONE on Oct. 31, the researchers describe four types of cnidarian fossils preserving traits that allow them to be related to modern orders and families of jellyfish. The specimens are about 200 million years older than the oldest previously discovered jellyfish fossils.

AU - Konstantakopoulos, Nicki. AU - SEYMOUR, J. AU - Hodgson, Wayne. PY - 2008. Y1 - 2008. N2 - Irukandji syndrome is usually characterized by delayed severe abdominal, back and chest pain associated with autonomic effects including diaphoresis, hypertension and, in severe cases, myocardial injury and pulmonary oedema. It is most often associated with envenoming by the jellyfish Carukia barnesi, but a number of other jellyfish, including Alatina mordens, are now known to produce Irukandji syndrome. In the present study, nematocyst-derived venom from A. nr mordens (150-250 ?g/kg, i.v.) produced a long-lasting pressor effect in anaesthetised rats. This pressor response (250 ?g/kg, i.v.) was significantly inhibited by prior administration of the ?-adrenoceptor antagonist prazosin (200 ?g/kg, i.v.) but not by CSL box ...

Troublesome jellyfish blooms have prompted fears that jellyfish may come to dominate marine ecosystems thanks to humans, however, to some scientists this is premature and unfair.
