Comparative analysis of structural properties of Portunid Crab Hemocyanin.


In order to explore the hemocyanin adaptative potential and evolutive dynamics, we have analyzed the structural properties of this oxygen-carrier protein, in some species of portunid Crabs, (Brachyura, Portunida). We have compared the intra- and interspecific subunits patterns, in native and denaturant conditions, to estimate the phenetic relationships and… (More)
