The full-length cDNA of a transformer gene (Dptra) was cloned from the cladoceran Daphnia pulex using RACE. Dptra expression was assessed by qPCR and whole-mount in situ hybridization in different reproductive stages. The Dptra cDNA, 1652bp in length, has a 1158-bp open reading frame that encodes a 385 amino acid polypeptide containing one Sex determination(More)
The gene doublesex (dsx) has shown deep conservation in the sex determination in many organisms. Environmental stimuli initiate a switch in the reproductive strategy of Daphnia pulex from asexual to sexual reproduction; however, occasionally, changes in environmental conditions will not lead to this transition. So study genetic responses to environmental(More)
We explored the pathogenic mechanism of Vibrio alginolyticus in the stone crab Charybdis japonica by studying the hemolymph of C. japonica artificially infected by V. alginolyticus. To this end, Wright-Geimsa staining and electron microscopy were used, and phenoloxidase (PO) activity and the immune protection rate of C. japonica injected with immune(More)
