The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of time of day on RNA/DNA ratios among fed and starved Crassostrea angulata and Ruditapes decussatus juveniles. Sampling to investigate the day and night condition of juveniles was carried out for 48 h. A highly sensitive method for nucleic acid quantification was applied to bivalves. The results suggest… CONTINUE READING
