Energy metabolism is a key process in larval settlement of barnacles, but the underlying molecular mechanisms remain ambiguous. Arginine kinase (AK) mainly participates in energy metabolism in invertebrates. So far, its roles in barnacles have not been studied. In the present study, we raised an antibody against AK from Amphibalanus amphitrite Darwin to(More)
Barnacles, as major fouling organisms, have attracted more attentions. It is no doubt that the study on cement proteins is required to illustrate the mechanism of barnacle cementing. A cement protein defined as Aa-cp100k was characterized from Amphibalanus amphitrite in this study. The amino acid sequence of Aa-cp100k was shown a high similarity to other(More)
Settlement-inducing protein complex (SIPC) is a pheromone that triggers conspecific larval settlement in the barnacle Amphibalanus amphitrite. In the present study, immunostaining and scanning electron microscopy of SIPC revealed signals in the frontal horn pores and the secretions from carapace pores, suggesting that SIPC might be directly secreted from(More)
