To elucidate the evolutionary origin of genes encoding thioester-containing proteins (TEPs), TEP genes were isolated from a cnidarian, a sea anemone, Haliplanella lineate. Phylogenetic tree analysis of the four identified cnidarian TEP genes and various TEP genes of many metazoa, indicated that they could be classified into two subfamilies: the(More)
Signaled avoidance learning in crayfish (Procambarus clarkii) was investigated when the crayfish were not confined, by indexing two types of locomotive movement to the escape compartment. Mild shocks, which induced tail flipping in the crayfish, and light illumination were used as unconditioned and conditioned stimuli, respectively. In Experiment 1, two(More)
