Prohibitin plays a key role in maintaining mitochondrial membrane integrity and retaining its normal function. We have initially cloned and sequenced the cDNA of prohibitin from testis of the crab Eriocheir sinensis. The 1,357 bp Prohibitin cDNA comprises a 105 bp 5′ untranslated region, a 427 bp 3′ untranslated region and a 825 bp open reading frame.(More)
Spermiogenesis is a developmental process undergoing continuous differentiation to drive a diploid spermatogonium towards a haploid sperm cell. This striking transformation from spermatogonium to spermatozoa is made possible by the stage-specific adaption of cytoskeleton and associated molecular motor proteins. KIFC1 is a C-terminal kinesin motor found to(More)
The documents on Metallothioneins (MTs) in aquatic creatures, especially focusing on their function as biomarkers in environmental monitoring programmes, are vast and increasing. There are, however, few papers to summary the physiological role of MTs in aquatic organisms especially on development. The multifaceted roles of MTs include involvement in(More)
