Biochemical and Enzymatic Characterization of an Acetylcholinesterase From Nereis diversicolor (Annelida, Polychaeta): Comparison With the Cholinesterases of Eisenia fetida (Annelida, Oligochaeta).
This study constitutes the first report of a biochemical characterization, involving both substrates and inhibitors and electrophoretic analysis, of a cholinesterase (ChE) from a polychaete annelidExpand

Ultrastructural study of the encapsulation response of the polychaete annelid Nereis diversicolor
SummaryForeign bodies implanted into the coelomic cavity of the polychaete annelid, Nereis diversicolor, are rapidly encapsulated by coelomocytes. This phenomenon was studied ultrastructurally withExpand

Etude cytochimique et autoradiographique de l'ovogenèse de Nereis diversicolor O. F. Müller (Annélide polychète), dans les conditions naturelles et en l'absence d'hormone cérébrale
Resume La suppression experimentale de l'influence cerebrale determine un accroissement rapide de la taille des ovocytes. On observe tout d'abord une phase de croissance tres rapide (5–10 jours apresExpand

Detection of mRNA encoding an antibacterial-metalloprotein (MPII) by in situ hybridization with a cDNA probe generated by polymerase chain reaction in the worm Nereis diversicolor.
Based on partial amino acid sequence of an antibacterial-metalloprotein (MPII) consisting of a N-terminal fragment (1-33th) and an 43 amino acids long internal fragment, two oligonucleotides primersExpand

Evolution of the concepts of vitellogenesis in polychaete annelids
Summary In polychaete annelids, two types of vitellogenesis have been described: a heterosynthetic mechanism (in a number of different of worms) and an autosynthetic process (other including Nereis).Expand
