THE STRUCTURE AND METABOLISM OF A CRUSTACEAN INTEGUMENTARY TISSUE DURING A MOLT CYCLE
TLDR
The period of premolt activity during which limb regeneration and gastrolith formation occurs precedes the changes in the integumentary tissues and has, therefore, been called DO.
LOSS OF LIMBS AS A STIMULUS TO ECDYSIS IN BRACHYURA (TRUE CRABS)
1. Loss of 6 to 8 pereiopods or chelipeds triggers precocious molts in a number of marine crabs including the green crab, Carcinus maenas, the blue crab, Callinectes sapidus, and the fiddler crabs,
Interacting Factors in the Control of the Crustacean Molt Cycle
In order to account for the known phenomena of the crustacean molt cycle, at least six factors must be postulated: a molting hormone (20-OH-ecdysone), a molt-inhibiting hormone (MIH), an anecdysial
Breakdown and reformation of somatic muscle during the molt cycle of the land crab, Gecarcinus lateralis.

TLDR
During the premolt period (approximately 50 days in large specimens of this animal) the quantity of muscle per chela decreases to approximately 60% the amount found in intermolt animals; during this time the fraction of protein per unit of wet weight of muscle remains constant.
Amino acid incorporation into protein during the molt cycle of the land crab, Gecarcinus lateralis
TLDR
It was shown that the rate of penetration of amino acid from plasma water into intracellular water was not the rate limiting step in the incorporation of C14-leucine into muscle protein, and the pool sizes of valine and leucine in plasma water do not appear to be rate limiting.
Molting in Land Crabs: Stimulation by Leg Removal
TLDR
If the Bermuda land crab, Gecarcinus lateralis, loses numerous walking legs or both chelipeds, it undergoes almost immediate preparations for molting with attendant limb regeneration, with no effect in intact animals or those missing legs.
Interactions between molting and regeneration in the land crab.
TLDR
The precise stage of the animal in the molt cycle determines whether growth and/or DNA synthesis decrease or cease in the remaining primary regenerates.
