Molecular analysis of the seasonal expression of genes coding for different functional markers of the digestive gland of the bivalve mollusk Pecten maximus (L.).


Digestive gland cells of Pecten maximus accumulate and release lipid storage according to a seasonal cycle. For the first time in molluscs, molecular probes were developed and applied to monitor the lipid accumulation and consumption cycle related to phytoplankton blooms and phenomena of cellular proliferation and apoptosis. The molecular probes consisted… (More)
