Differential Expression of miRNAs in the Respiratory Tree of the Sea Cucumber Apostichopus japonicus Under Hypoxia Stress
TLDR
Investigation of alterations in miRNA expression in the sea cucumber under different levels of dissolved oxygen suggested that these miRNAs are important in redox, transport, transcription, and hydrolysis under hypoxia stress. Expand
Molecular cloning of heat shock protein 10 (Hsp10) and 60 (Hsp60) cDNAs and their expression analysis under thermal stress in the sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus.
TLDR
The results suggested that hsp10 and hsp60 were involved in the heat-shock response in the sea cucumber A. japonicus. Expand
Impact of hypoxia stress on the physiological responses of sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus: respiration, digestion, immunity and oxidative damage
TLDR
The physiological responses of Apostichopus japonicus to oxygen deficiency was illustrated, including induced oxidative response and immune defense and changed digestive enzymes activities, which could help to develop a better understanding of the responsive mechanism of sea cucumber under hypoxia stress. Expand
Metabolome responses of the sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus to multiple environmental stresses: Heat and hypoxia.
TLDR
Combined environmental stressors have a more extensive impact on the metabolites of the respiratory tree in sea cucumbers than single stress, which would facilitate further development of the sea cucumber as an echinoderm model to study mechanisms of response to adverse environments, and help advance knowledge of the adaptation of marine organisms to global climate change.

Effects of dietary protein levels on the growth, energy budget, and physiological and immunological performance of green, white and purple color morphs of sea cucumber, Apostichopus japonicus
TLDR
Results showed that dietary protein levels had a significant effect on the growth performance of A. japonicus, indicating that the protein content was beyond the digestive ability of sea cucumber, and that excess protein in the diet inhibits protein digestion. Expand
The effect of salinity on the growth, energy budget and physiological performance of green, white and purple color morphs of sea cucumber, Apostichopus japonicus
TLDR
Results clearly showed that the green color morph performed better at low salinities, while the purple was better adapted to high salinity within the tolerance range, indicating that metabolism was affected by low and highSalinity. Expand
Global-warming-caused changes of temperature and oxygen alter the proteomic profile of sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus.
TLDR
Comparison of comparative quantitative proteomics on Apostichopus japonicus respiratory tree using iTRAQ in responses to multiple climate change stressors indicated that sea cucumber adopted different strategies to cope with varied environmental stress, and the interaction between these two stressors has an additive effect at the proteome level. Expand
Reproduction affects locomotor behaviour and muscle physiology in the sea cucumber, Apostichopus japonicus
TLDR
The results suggest that loss of locomotor endurance is the behavioural cost of reproduction in female A.japonicus and oxidative stress and lipid metabolism are potential physiological mechanisms linking reproduction and depressed locomotory performance. Expand
Differences in immune function and metabolites between aestivating and non-aestivating Apostichopus japonicus
TLDR
New insights are provided for understanding the differences in intestine degradation, enzyme activities and metabolites between non-aestivating and aestivating A. japonicus under high temperature in summer. Expand
Broodstock Conditioning and Spawning
Summary This chapter focuses on the gametogenic maturation and spawning of Apostichopus japonicus and explores the influence of environmental factors on gamete release. It also presents and discussesExpand
