Physiological Ecology of the Deposit-Feeding Sea Star Ctenodiscus crispatus: Ciliated Surfaces and Animal-Sediment lnteractions
TLDR
The biology of the eurybathic C, crispatus, wrth relerence to that 01 thc r r Ik,tcd Porc~,llanasteritiae, a group of t r u l y deep-sea d ~ p o s i t feedlng astero~ds, is studied. Expand
Diet, feeding behavior, and surface morphology of the multi-armed Antarctic sea star Labidiaster annulatus (Echinodermata Asteroidea)
TLDR
Differences in the size and function of crossed pedicellariae, sources and types of prey and methods of prey capture now suggest that L. annulatus is not an ecological equivalent of Pycnopodia helianthoides from western North America. Expand
Insect cardioactive peptides: regulation of hindgut activity by cardioacceleratory peptide 2 (CAP2) during wandering behaviour in Manduca sexta larvae.
TLDR
It is proposed that CAP2 exerts its effect on the larval hindgut at wandering via a local release from CAP-containing neurones in the terminal ganglion that project directly to the hindguts. Expand
Insect cardioactive peptides in Manduca sexta: a comparison of the biochemical and molecular characteristics of cardioactive peptides in larvae and adults.
TLDR
The role of neurally derived peptides affecting insect visceral muscle has been explored by many investigators over the past thirty years and was supported by quantitative immunocytochemical studies using an anti-CAP monoclonal antibody to identify a group of central nervous system (CNS) neurones that were CAPimmunoreactive.
