Ontogenetic changes in the organization and volume fraction of collagenous connective tissues were examined in the mantle of Sepioteuthis lessoniana, the oval squid. Outer tunic fiber angle (the angle of a tunic collagen fiber relative to the long axis of the squid) decreased from 33.5 degrees in newly hatched animals to 17.7 degrees in the largest animals studied. The arrangement of intramuscular collagen fiber systems 1 (IM-1) and 2 (IM-2) also changed significantly during ontogeny. Because… CONTINUE READING
