Abstract In scallops, gametogenesis leads to considerable transfer of energetic reserves from the adductor muscle to the gonads. During an annual cycle, the scallops are exposed to changes in temperature and food availability. As these changes may affect muscle metabolic capacities, we examined whether the properties of the mitochondria in the phasic adductor muscle were modified during the annual cycle of the scallop Euvola (Pecten) ziczac (L. 1758). During our study, temperature and… 

Effect of reproduction on escape responses, metabolic rates and muscle mitochondrial properties in the scallop Placopecten magellanicus

Shifts in maintenance requirements and aerobic scope provided the best explanation for the impact of reproduction on escape response performance and mitochondrial properties could not explain the decreased recuperation ability from exhausting exercise in spawned scallops.

Contribution of food availability to the more rapid growth of the scallop, Euvola ziczac (Pteroida, Pectinidae) in bottom than in suspended culture.

It is concluded that the more rapid growth of Euvola ziczac in bottom than suspended culture is principally due to stress relative to suspended culture system.

High‐Energy Phosphate Metabolism during Exercise and Recovery in Temperate and Antarctic Scallops: An In Vivo 31P‐NMR Study

Findings argue for some cold compensation of muscular performance and recovery capacities in the Antarctic scallop, albeit at levels of performance similar to scallops with low activity lifestyles from temperate latitudes.

Comparison of cultured and wild sea scallops Placopecten magellanicus, using behavioral responses and morphometric and biochemical indices

C cultured scallops had larger somatic tissues and higher muscle energetic contents than their wild counterparts and showed more intense escape responses to the starfish predator Asterias vulgaris, making them more vulnerable to predation by grasping predators (crabs and asteroids.



Metabolic specialization of mitochondria from scallop phasic muscles

The combination of maintenance of sensitivity to ADP with an enhanced affinity for pyruvate at acidic pH values should facilitate recuperation from bouts of glycolytic activity.

The Effects of Salinity Acclimation on the Osmotic Properties of Mitochondria from the Gill Of Crassostrea Virginica

The data suggest that an optimal matrix solute concentration or ionic strength is required for maximal rates of glutamate oxidation rather than an optimal mitochondrial volume, and the optimal mitochondrial matrix milieu can be achieved both by acclimation to dilute sea water and by incubation in hypo-osmotic media.

Energy Metabolism during Contractile Activity and Environmental Hypoxia in the Phasic Adductor Muscle of the Bay Scallop Argopecten irradians concentricus

Octopine production is clearly restricted to periods of contractile activity in the phasic adductor muscle of A. irradians concentricus and does not occur during environmental hypoxia or recovery after swimming.


The results indicate only modest evolutionary adjustments in the maximal rates of mitochondrial respiration in fish living at different temperatures.

Preparation and some respiratory properties of coupled mitochondria from ribbed mussel (Modiolus demissus) gill tissue

A procedure utilizing isoosmotic sucrose, EGTA, defatted serum albumin, and HEPES as the isolation medium was devised for the preparation of fully coupled ribbed mussel gill mitochondria, which yielded mitochondria showing state 2 respiration, slow partially uncoupled ATP synthesis during state 3 respiration and no state 4 respiration.

Hepatopancreas mitochondria from Mytilus edulis:

Mitochondrial volume changes correlate with the optimal range of osmolarity for glutamate oxidation based on the RCR, which may indicate the presence of the enzymes involved in the synthesis of taurine.

Control of Glycolysis during Contractile Activity in the Phasic Adductor Muscle of the Bay Scallop, Argopecten irradians concentricus: Identification of Potential Sites of Regulation and a Consideration of the Control of Octopine Dehydrogenase Activity

Kinetic analysis of adductor muscle octopine dehydrogenase indicated thatOctopine production is due to the synergistic effects of elevations in the concentrations of pyruvate, arginine, and H⁺, and a decline in the NAD⁺/NADH ratio.
