Comparative regeneration of excised mantle tissue in one year and seven year old Indian pearl oyster, Pinctada fucata (Gould) grown under land-based culture system

The findings revealed that even aged donor oysters yielding good quality saibo can be recovered after mantle excision and could be further used as saibo donors for quality pearl production.

A detailed description of pearl‐sac development in the black‐lip pearl oyster, Pinctada margaritifera (Linnaeus 1758)

The findings reported in this paper provide a more detailed understanding of pearl-sac development in P. margaritifera and a basis for future research towards developing improved pearl culture practices and pearl quality.

Regeneration of excised shell by the invasive apple snail Pomacea canaliculata

This study shows that apple snails have effective shell regeneration abilities and that haemocytes and calcium transportation appear to play an important role in shell growth and regeneration.

Mantle and Its Protective Role of the Slipper-shaped Oyster (Crassostrea Iredalei) in Response to Crude Oil

The structure and function of the mantle, the shell formation, the edge of theantle, mucous cell, muscle bundles, nerve fibers, and epithelium layer of the Slipper-Shaped Oyster (Crassostrea iredalei) were documented in this study.

A histological examination of grafting success in pearl oyster Pinctada margaritifera in French Polynesia

Pearl oyster grafting is a complex surgical operation that should lead to pearl formation after approximately eighteen months. Although this technique has been used for many years in French

Mantle-edge regeneration after cropping in the fluted giant clam, Tridacna squamosa Lamarck, 1819

The ability of Tridacna squamosa individuals to survive and regenerate their injured tissues within three months provides preliminary insights into their responses to natural predation and can inform giant clam mariculture and restocking operations.


The result showed that the healing time of the wound started from three to twelve days of the observation and mantle regeneration was first detected from twelve to twenty four days of observation; then there was no mortality recorded during this study.



Mantle regeneration in the pearl oysters Pinctada fucata and Pinctada margaritifera

Wound healing after excision of mantle tissue from the Akoya pearl oyster, Pinctada fucata.

The Pattern of Cell Proliferation during Pearl Sac Formation in the Pearl Oyster

Proliferation of connective tissue cells in the wound site can also be expected to occur as part of the wound healing process, but this has not been examined.

Investigation of cell proliferation and differentiation in the mantle of Pinctada fucata (Bivalve, Mollusca)

A hypothetic model for the proliferation and differentiation of the pearl oyster’s mantle is proposed: there exists a proliferation “hot spot” in the outer epithelial cells of central zone and the proliferation ability decreases progressively from this “ hot spot’ towards the marginal zone; the whole mantle”'s differentiation occurs continuously with its growth and the direction is from the proliferation ‘hotspot’ (central zone) towards theMarginal zone.

Pearl Formation: Persistence of the Graft During the Entire Process of Biomineralization

The existence of a unique biological cooperation leading to the successful biomineralization process of nacreous secretion in pearl formation is suggested by showing that cells containing genome from the donor are still present at the end of pearl formation.

Monolayer formation and DNA synthesis of the outer epithelial cells from pearl oyster mantle in coculture with amebocytes

The morphological features of the mantle outer epithelia of the pallial mantle of the pearl oyster are analogous to those described for the in vivo cutaneous wound healing process, suggesting that the epithelium-amebocyte interaction is important in the regeneration of epithelio in bivalves.

Histology of The Mantle and Pearl Sac of The Pearl Oyster Pinctada Maxima (Lamellibranchia)

Summary The mantle of Pinctada maxima is covered by a single layer of epithelium with associated secretory cells. It shows regional differentiation mainly in epithelial cell height, pigmentation,
