Regulation of crustacean molting and regeneration

  title={Regulation of crustacean molting and regeneration},
  author={Dorothy M. Skinner and Dale E. Graham and Christie A. Holland and Cynthia Soumoff and Donald L. Mykles},
The regulation of molting and regeneration by two antagonistic hormones is discussed. The time course of ecdysteroid titers in crustacean tissues has been followed during molt and regeneration cycles. (ACR) 
Polybrominated diphenyl ethers disrupt molting in neonatal Daphnia magna
It is found thatPBDEs-28 and -47 can delay molting at μg/L concentrations, which raises concern for disrupted molting in crustaceans exposed to PBDEs.
