Differences in the digestive biochemistry between the intertidal clam, Ruditapes decussatus, and the subtidal clam, Venerupis pullastra

Abstract

The present study was aimed to evaluate differences in physicochemical characteristics (pH and temperature optima) of the main digestive enzymes (amylase, cellulase, laminarinase, and protease) in two commercially important bivalves, the intertidal clam, Ruditapes decussatus, and the subtidal clam, Venerupis pullastra, as well to assess individual… (More)
