Experimental exposure of the blue mussel (Mytilus edulis, L.) to the toxic dinoflagellate Alexandrium fundyense: Histopathology, immune responses, and recovery
Abstract Mussels ( Mytilus edulis ) were exposed to cultures of the toxic dinoflagellate Alexandrium fundyense or the non-toxic alga Rhodomonas sp. to evaluate the effects of the harmful alga on theExpand
Effects of Alexandrium minutum exposure on nutrition-related processes and reproductive output in oysters Crassostrea gigas
This study assessed the effects of an artificial bloom of the toxin-producing dinoflagellate, Alexandrium minutum, upon nutrition related processes and reproductive output of the Pacific oyster,Expand
Apoptosis in the pathogenesis of infectious diseases of the eastern oyster Crassostrea virginica.
Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, has been reported as being pivotal in infectious diseases of different organisms. The effects of apoptosis on the progression and transmission of the protistanExpand
Acute histological responses of the gill of the mussel, Mytilus edulis, to exposure by environmental pollutants
Abstract Acute effects of the heavy metals cadmium, copper, lead, cobalt, iron, and silver, and the organic pollutants PCB, DDT, and dieldrin on the gill of the mussel Mytilus edulis were studied inExpand
Ultrastructural Characteristics of the In Vitro Cell Cycle of the Protozoan Pathogen of Oysters, Perkinsus marinus
Abstract Ultrastructural characteristics of vegetative and zoosporangial stages of cultured Perkinsus marinus, a pathogen of the eastern oyster, Crassostrea virginica, were examined by transmissionExpand
Pathology and immune response of the blue mussel (Mytilus edulis L.) after an exposure to the harmful dinoflagellate Prorocentrum minimum
The harmful dinoflagellate Prorocentrum minimum has different effects upon various species of grazing bivalves, and these effects also vary with life-history stage. Possible effects of thisExpand
Abstract The eastern oyster is an economically and ecologically important species whose vitality is threatened by the protozoal parasite Perkinsus marinus. To better understand which cellular defenseExpand
Several Cases of Disseminated Neoplasia in Mussels Mytilus edulis (L.) in Western Long Island Sound
Abstract Eight cases of disseminated neoplasia were found among 540 specimens of Mytilus edulis collected from an intertidal beach in Connecticut in western Long Island Sound. This was unusual,Expand
Respiration of sarcoma cells from the soft-shell clam Mya arenaria L. under various conditions
Abstract Oxygen consumption of sarcoma cells from the soft-shell clam Mya arenaria L. was studied. Hemolymph of clams in the terminal stage of sarcoma was strongly hypoxic. In early cases of sarcoma,Expand
Perkinsosis in the Manila clam Ruditapes philippinarum affects responses to the harmful-alga, Prorocentrum minimum
Abstract The dinoflagellate Prorocentrum minimum is increasingly recognized as a harmful algal bloom (HAB) species that affects filter-feeding shellfish. An experiment was done to investigateExpand
