Skeletal growth, ultrastructure and composition of the azooxanthellate scleractinian coral Balanophyllia regia
The biomineralization process and skeletal growth dynamics of azooxanthellate corals are poorly known. Here, the growth rate of the shallow-water dendrophyllid scleractinian coral Balanophyllia regiaExpand
Identification of media supplements that improve the viability of primarily cell cultures ofCrassostrea gigas oysters
Media supplements have been investigated for their influence on the viability of primary cell cultures from the heart ofCrassostrea gigas oysters. Soluble factors of vertebrate origin were tested,Expand
In vitro effects of triclosan and methyl-triclosan on the marine gastropod Haliotis tuberculata.
Triclosan (2,4,4'-trichloro-2'-hydroxy-diphenyl ether; TCS) is an antibacterial agent incorporated in a wide variety of household and personal care products. Because of its partial elimination inExpand
Identification of two carbonic anhydrases in the mantle of the European Abalone Haliotis tuberculata (Gastropoda, Haliotidae): phylogenetic implications.
Carbonic anhydrases (CAs) represent a diversified family of metalloenzymes that reversibly catalyze the hydration of carbon dioxide. They are involved in a wide range of functions, among which is theExpand
A comparison of Steller sea lion, Eumetopias jubatus, pup masses between rookeries with increasing and decreasing populations
1 National Marine Mammal Laboratory, National Marine Fisheries Service, 7600 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle, WA 98115. Unpubl. data, 1994. 2 Calkins. D. G., and K. W. Pitcher. 1982. PopulationExpand
Investigating the establishment of primary cell culture from different abalone (Haliotis midae) tissues
The abalone, Haliotis midae, is the most valuable commodity in South African aquaculture. The increasing demand for marine shellfish has stimulated research on the biology and physiology of targetExpand
Abstract Mollusc shell formation requires calcium (Ca++) and bicarbonate (CO3 −) ions, transported through the mantle via the hemolymph, and the secretion of an organic matrix that interacts with theExpand
Cytotoxicity assessment of antibiofouling compounds and by-products in marine bivalve cell cultures.
Short-term primary cell cultures were derived from adult marine bivalve tissues: the heart of oyster Crassostrea gigas and the gill of clam Ruditapes decussatus. These cultures were used asExpand
The 20-hydroxyecdysone-induced cellular arrest in G2 phase is preceded by an inhibition of cyclin expression.
We have studied the effect of 20-hydroxyecdysone (20E) on cellular proliferation in IAL-PID2 cell line established from imaginal wing discs of Plodia interpunctella. Flow cytometry analysisExpand
Biomineralization markers during early shell formation in the European abalone Haliotis tuberculata, Linnaeus
Larval shell formation was investigated in the European abalone Haliotis tuberculata. Stages of mineralization as well as enzymatic and endocrine biomarkers were monitored throughout larvalExpand
