The present study attempts to correlate the metabolism and locomotory behavior of 25 species of midwater Cephalopoda from California and Hawaii with the maximal activities of key metabolic enzymes in various locomotory muscle tissues. Citrate synthase (CS) and octopine dehydrogenase (ODH) activities were used as indicators of aerobic and anaerobic metabolic potential respectively. CS activity in mantle muscle is highly correlated with whole-animal rates of oxygen consumption, whereas ODH… CONTINUE READING
