INPP5E mutations cause primary cilium signaling defects, ciliary instability and ciliopathies in human and mouse
TLDR
It is reported that mice deficient for the lipid 5-phosphatase Inpp5e develop a multiorgan disorder associated with structural defects of the primary cilium, and the results show that INPP5E plays an essential role in the primarycilium by controlling ciliary growth factor and PI3K signaling and stability.

When Microplastic Is Not Plastic: The Ingestion of Artificial Cellulose Fibers by Macrofauna Living in Seagrass Macrophytodetritus.
TLDR
Ingested artificial fibers of various sizes and colors were found in 27.6% of the digestive tracts of the nine dominant species regardless of their trophic level or taxon and Raman spectroscopy revealed that the ingested AFs were composed of viscose, an artificial, cellulose-based polymer. Expand
Ultrastructural changes in the gill epithelium of the green crab Carcinus maenas in relation to the external salinity.
TLDR
Observation of semi-thin and ultrathin sections performed in the gills of green crabs kept in 100% and in dilute 30% sea water respectively reveals marked differences between the six anterior and the three posterior pairs of gills, which supports the view it is chiefly involved in the respiratory function.

Polyolefin matrixes with permanent antibacterial activity: preparation, antibacterial activity, and action mode of the active species.
TLDR
Morphological changes of E. coli bacteria in contact with modified LDPE have been observed by transmission and scanning electron microscopy and indicate that the diblock copolymer is bactericide rather than bacteriostatic. Expand
Microplastics in livers of European anchovies (Engraulis encrasicolus, L.).
TLDR
The presence of MPs in the livers of commercial zooplanktivorous fishes collected in the field is investigated and two translocation pathways are hypothesized: (i) large particles found in the liver resulted from the agglomeration of smaller pieces, and/or they simply pass through the intestinal barrier. Expand
Morphology of the filtration apparatus of three planktivorous fishes and relation with ingested anthropogenic particles.
TLDR
The morphology of the filtration apparatus of three wild-caught Clupeiformes and the results to ingested APs lead to the conclusion that the sardine is the species most exposed to APs. Expand
Distribution of bacteria and associated minerals in the gill chamber of the vent shrimp Rimicaris exoculata and related biogeochemical processes
TLDR
The authors' chemical and temperature data indicated that abiotic iron oxidation appears to be kinetically inhibited in the environment of the shrimps, which would explain the lack of iron oxide deposits in the first 2 compartments, and it is proposed that iron oxidation is microbially promoted in the third area. Expand
Inorganic carbon fixation by chemosynthetic ectosymbionts and nutritional transfers to the hydrothermal vent host-shrimp Rimicaris exoculata
TLDR
The first demonstration of such capabilities in a decapod crustacean supports the previously discarded hypothesis of transtegumental absorption of dissolved organic matter or carbon as a common nutritional pathway. Expand
Structure, composition and mechanical relations to function in sea urchin spine.
TLDR
Sea urchins have characteristic spines that fulfil critical functions, and marked spine internal heterogeneities at different structural levels despite the single-crystal character of the spines are investigated, revealing that the septa have higher stiffness and hardness than the meshwork stereom and that septum stiffness and toughness present different trends in longitudinal and transverse section.
