Ionic effects on discharge of the isolated and in situ nematocysts of the sea anemone, Aiptasia pallida: A possible role of calcium
Abstract 1. Nematocysts were isolated from acontia by extrusion in 1·0 M sodium citrate. The high concentration was necessary to maintain the liberated nematocysts in an undischarged state. 2. 2.Expand
Seasonal changes in the lipids of the sea anemone, Metridium senile (L.)
TLDR
It is postulated that triglycerides serve as the primary lipid energy reserve in Metridium , while wax esters function in a secondary capacity, being called upon in times of metabolic stress such as sexual reproduction. Expand
A Disulfide-Linked Collagenous Protein of Nematocyst Capsules
The major protein component present in the capsule and thread of a sea anemone nematocyst consists of monomers of a collagen-like protein linked by disulfide bonds. Purified nematocyst capsules andExpand
Properties and composition of the nematocyst toxin of the sea anemone, Aiptasia pallida
TLDR
Compounds previously thought to be possible components of nematocyst toxins such as quaternary amines and hydroxyindoles were not found in the nematocytes of Aiptasia and were found to be composed mainly of the amino acid glutamic acid. Expand
Acetate incorporation into the lipids of the anemone Anthopleura elegantissima and its associated zooxanthellae
TLDR
Isotope incorporation patterns for anemones and isolated zooxanthellae suggest that fatty acids, primarily in the form of saturated or monoenoic fatty acid, are translocated from algal to animal cells. Expand
THE CHEMISTRY OF CNIDAE
STRUCTURAL AND CHEMICAL ASPECTS OF THE PODOCYST CUTICLE OF THE SCYPHOZOAN MEDUSA, CHRYSAORA QUINQUECIRRHA
TLDR
An investigation of the structural and chemical aspects of the podocyst cuticle of the Chesapeake Bay sea nettle, Chrysaora quin quecirrha, finds that it enables the organism to withstand, for prolonged periods, conditions which are unfavorable to the polyp. Expand
An unusual blue mesogleal protein from the mangrove jellyfish Cassiopea xamachana
TLDR
Chromatographic and polyacrylamide gel electrophoretic techniques demonstrate that the pigment is a highly polymeric glycoprotein comprised of two subunits with molecular weights of 34 500 and 30 300 daltons and characterized by multiple charged species. Expand
Surface ultrastructure of the scyphopolyp, Chrysaora quinquecirrha.
A survey of the epidermal and gastrodermal surfaces of the scyphopolyp Chrysaora quinquecirrha by scanning electron microscopy reveals that all epithelia are ciliated to varying degrees. Cilia areExpand
