The polychaete, Hydroides elegans, is a tube-building worm that is widely distributed in tropical and subtropical seas. It is a dominant fouling species and thus a major target organism in antifouling research. Here, the first high-throughput proteomic profiling of pre-competent and competent larvae of H. elegans is reported with the identification of 1,519 and 1,322 proteins, respectively. These proteins were associated with a variety of biological processes. However, a large proportion was… Expand
Proteomics insights: proteins related to larval attachment and metamorphosis of marine invertebrates
The results of these studies have shown that systematic changes in protein expression patterns and post-translational modifications (PTM) are crucial for the transition from larva to juvenile. Expand
The regulatory role of arginine kinase during larval settlement of the bryozoan Bugula neritina
It is revealed that arginine kinase was highly expressed in the swimming larvae of B. neritina, while its expression was down-regulated post-attachment, and the immunostaining results indicated that AK was mainly localized to the neuro-muscular cord in swimming larvae. Expand


Hydroides Elegans (Annelida: Polychaeta): A Model for Biofouling Research
Tubes of H. elegans adhere very tightly to surfaces and are more resistant to dislodgement than many barnacles, which makes them an excellent model organism for experimental studies, including tests of newly formulated marine coatings. Expand
2D gel-based multiplexed proteomic analysis during larval development and metamorphosis of the biofouling polychaete tubeworm Hydroides elegans.
The results indicated that the level of protein phosphorylation might play a crucial role in the initiation of larval settlement and metamorphosis of H. elegans. Expand
Quantitative Proteomics Study of Larval Settlement in the Barnacle Balanus amphitrite
Comparison of proteomic profiles of stage II nauplii, stage VI nauPLii, cyprids, and juveniles of the barnacle Balanus amphitrite provided molecular evidence for the morphological, physiological and biological changes that occur during the transition process from the larval to the juvenile stages in B. amph itrite.

First proteome of the egg perivitelline fluid of a freshwater gastropod with aerial oviposition.
Characterization of the PVF proteome has opened the gate for further studies aiming to understand the evolution of the novel proteins and their contribution to the switch to aerial oviposition. Expand

Results showed that the p38 MAPK-dependent pathway plays critical role in controlling larval metamorphosis of the marine polychaete H. elegans, and the reactive oxygen radicals produced by biofilm could be the cue inducing larval meetamorphosis. Expand
Quantitative proteomics identify molecular targets that are crucial in larval settlement and metamorphosis of Bugula neritina.
A comparative study of swimming larvae and metamorphosing individuals at 4 and 24 h postattachment using label-free quantitative proteomics provides molecular evidence with which to elucidate the substantial changes in morphology and physiology that occur during larval attachment and meetamorphosis but also identifies potential targets for antifouling treatment.

Transcriptome and quantitative proteome analysis reveals molecular processes associated with larval metamorphosis in the polychaete Pseudopolydora vexillosa.
High-throughput RNA sequencing and quantitative proteomics allowed a global scale analysis of larval transcripts/proteins associated molecular processes in the metamorphosis of polychaete worms, and transcriptomic and proteomic insights provide a new direction to understand the fundamental mechanisms that regulate larval meetamorphosis in polychaetes.

Copper affects biofilm inductiveness to larval settlement of the serpulid polychaete Hydroides elegans (Haswell)
The results indicate that Cu affected larval settlement mainly through its effect on the process of biofilm development in the marine environment, and the chemical profile was crucial to biofilm inductiveness. Expand
The Mode of Action of Isocyanide in Three Aquatic Organisms, Balanus amphitrite, Bugula neritina and Danio rerio
This is the first report on isocyanide binding proteins in fouling organisms, as well as the first description of its phenotype and potential toxicology in zebrafish. Expand
Biofouling likely serves as a major mode of dispersal for the polychaete tubeworm Hydroides elegans as inferred from microsatellite loci
Estimates of pairwise F st and migration rates using the coalescent-based method of MIGRATE suggest that there is little genetic differentiation between certain populations, and the most likely explanation for close genetic relatedness among certain populations over such vast distances is the regular and consistent transport of adults and larvae on the hulls and in the ballast water of ships.
