Differences in Brachypelma albopilosa (Theraphosidae) hemolymph proteome between subadult and adult females.

The changes in the hemolymph proteome of mygalomorph Brachypelma albopilosa females were examined for the first time in relation to their developmental stage (subadult and adult period). Seven distinct subunits of hemocyanin (a, b, c, d, e, f, and g chains), as well as actin were clearly identified and their sequence partly characterized using a combination… CONTINUE READING
