The sea cucumber genome provides insights into morphological evolution and visceral regeneration
TLDR
A complete genome sequence of an economically important sea cucumber, A. japonicus, generated using Illumina and PacBio platforms is presented to provide a useful framework for future research into biological processes and evolution in deuterostomes, including remarkable regenerative abilities that could have medical applications. Expand
Differential Expression of miRNAs in the Respiratory Tree of the Sea Cucumber Apostichopus japonicus Under Hypoxia Stress
TLDR
Investigation of alterations in miRNA expression in the sea cucumber under different levels of dissolved oxygen suggested that these miRNAs are important in redox, transport, transcription, and hydrolysis under hypoxia stress. Expand
Molecular cloning of heat shock protein 10 (Hsp10) and 60 (Hsp60) cDNAs and their expression analysis under thermal stress in the sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus.
TLDR
The results suggested that hsp10 and hsp60 were involved in the heat-shock response in the sea cucumber A. japonicus. Expand
Aquaculture, Stock Enhancement, and Restocking
TLDR
This chapter provides general guidelines and can hopefully be used as a reference for researchers or managers working on the culture and protection of A. japonicus and other sea cucumber species. Expand
Chapter 9 - Environmental Drivers of Behavior
TLDR
This chapter explores environmentally driven behavior in embryos, larvae, juveniles, and adults of Apostichopus japonicus, which covers their movement, migration and aggregation, timing of spawning, as well as growth and feeding patterns. Expand
Heavy metals in sediment, microplastic and sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus from farms in China.
TLDR
The concentrations of eight heavy metals were measured in the sediment, the isolated microplastics from the sediment and the body wall of sea cucumbers from farms in China and there was no significant correlation among heavy metals in sediment, sea cucumber and microplastic. Expand
Impact of hypoxia stress on the physiological responses of sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus: respiration, digestion, immunity and oxidative damage
TLDR
The physiological responses of Apostichopus japonicus to oxygen deficiency was illustrated, including induced oxidative response and immune defense and changed digestive enzymes activities, which could help to develop a better understanding of the responsive mechanism of sea cucumber under hypoxia stress. Expand
Metabolome responses of the sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus to multiple environmental stresses: Heat and hypoxia.
TLDR
Combined environmental stressors have a more extensive impact on the metabolites of the respiratory tree in sea cucumbers than single stress, which would facilitate further development of the sea cucumber as an echinoderm model to study mechanisms of response to adverse environments, and help advance knowledge of the adaptation of marine organisms to global climate change. Expand
Microplastic fibers transfer from the water to the internal fluid of the sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus.
TLDR
It is revealed thatMFs transfer and accumulate in the coelomic fluid of A. japonicus post MFs transfer, which confirms the defensive role of LZMs against strange substances. Expand
Feeding preferences of the sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus (Selenka) on various seaweed diets
TLDR
This study suggests that a diet containing about 50% L. japonica of the total algal is very suitable for sea cucumber culture. Expand
