Ascidians from the Strait of Magellan
In the Magellan region, Ascidiacea appear to be a dominant invertebrate group at depths from 5 - 20 m. Most of the present collection, made by scuba divers in the Strait of Magellan, have a

Some Actiniaria from the Commander Islands (Cnidaria: Anthozoa)
Six species of sea anemones are found in material from the Commander Islands. A new genus and species of the family Isanthidae (Paraisanthus tamarae gen. et sp. n.) is described. Cnidopus Carlgren,
Geographic ranges of ascidians from Antarctica and the southeastern Pacific
Historical and novel data on the geographic and bathymetric distribution of ascidians from Antarctic, Magellan and Chilean waters are compiled, and an inventory of taxa comprising 162 species
On the introduction of the ascidian Ciona savignyi Herdman, 1882 into Peter the Great Bay, Sea of Japan
The occurrence of the solitary ascidian Ciona savignyi Herdman, 1882 in Vostok Bay (Peter the Great Bay, Sea of Japan) was first documented in 2004. Adult specimens occurred in fouling communities of
The genera Urticina and Cribrinopsis (Anthozoa: Actiniaria) from the north‐western Pacific
It is confirmed that the widely distributed north‐east Pacific anemone known as U. lofotensis is different from the European species of the same name but is conspecific with Cribrinopsis albopunctata sp.
Sea Anemone Peptide with Uncommon β-Hairpin Structure Inhibits Acid-sensing Ion Channel 3 (ASIC3) and Reveals Analgesic Activity*
A new peptide, Ugr 9-1, was isolated from the sea anemone venom and was shown to inhibit the acid-sensing ion channel 3 (ASIC3) channel, which affects the ASIC3 channel, produces analgesic effects, and has a unique spatial structure and mechanism of action.
Trophic structure of the abyssal benthic community in the Sea of Japan inferred from stable isotope and fatty acid analyses
The data reveal the dominant role of descending zooplankton as a food resource for megaand macrobenthos in this marginal deep-water environment and suggest that the simple structure of the Sea of Japan abyssal food web is the result of the young evolutionary age of this community rather than the low availability of bottom detritus or the specific structure ofThe pelagic community that provides abundant downward flow of zoopLankton.
