Disease relevance of Penaeidae

  • Nickel, chromium (VI) and the ore leachates showed similar toxicity to the juvenile banana prawn Penaeus merguiensis, the amphipod Allorchestes compressa and both temperature (22 degrees C) and tropical (27 degrees C) strains of the unicellular marine alga Nitzschia closterium [1].
  • The role of an extracellular cysteine protease, produced by pathogenic luminous Vibrio harveyi strain 820514 originally isolated from diseased tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon), in the disease process in the prawns was studied [2].

High impact information on Penaeidae

  • High concentrations of glucocerebroside (glucosylceramide) were found in the ventral nerve cord, brain, optic nerve, and antenna, but not in the nonneural tissue, of the brown shrimp Penaeus aztecus aztecus [3].
  • SDS polyacrylamide electrophoretic profiles of whole sperm and pericentriolar process proteins revealed a prominent protein that comigrates with rabbit and penaeid shrimp muscle actin [4].
  • To establish that Sa-II is indeed tropomyosin, the latter was isolated from uncooked shrimp (Penaeus indicus) and its physicochemical and immunochemical properties were compared with those of Sa-II [5].
  • Minces and homogenates of muscle obtained from the marine shrimp Penaeus duorarum are capable of synthesizing homarine from [14C]glycine [6].
  • Microsequencing of peptides from the latter allergens revealed significant homologies with allergen Mag 3 from D farinae and with a chitinase from prawn Penaeus japonicus [7].

Gene context of Penaeidae

  • Peroxinectin, a cell adhesive protein associated with the proPO system from the black tiger shrimp, Penaeus monodon [13].
  • BACKGROUND: Among 13 allergens found in extracts of cooked brown shrimp (Penaeus aztecus) the 36 kd muscle protein tropomyosin has been identified as the only major shrimp allergen (Pen a 1) [21].
  • In Penaeus vannamei, alpha-amylase is the most important glucosidase and is present as at least two major isoenzymes which have been purified [22].
  • Structural, immunological and functional properties of natural recombinant Pen a 1, the major allergen of Brown Shrimp, Penaeus aztecus [23].
  • A cDNA, named DD4, was identified in the prawn Penaeus japonicus in a search for genes that were expressed during calcification of the crustacean exoskeleton [24].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Penaeidae

  • Pen a 1, the major shrimp allergen from the brown shrimp Penaeus aztecus was purified by preparative SDS-PAGE [25].
  • From a crude extract of the sinus glands of the shrimp Penaeus (litopenaeus) schmitti a peptide with hyperglycemic activity in a homologous bioassay was isolated and characterized by a combination of automatic Edman degradation, enzymatic digestions, TLC of dansyl-amino acids, and mass spectrometry [26].
  • Allatostatin (AST)-like immunoreactivity (IR) was localized in the eyestalk of Penaeus monodon by immunohistochemistry using four anti-AST antibodies [27].
  • 1. Two anionic isoenzymes of glutathione transferases (EC, QI and QII, have been purified from the eyes of the shrimp Penaeus japonicus by using a combination of S-hexylglutathione affinity column chromatography and Mono-Q fast protein liquid chromatography (f.p.l.c.). 2. Both QI and II glutathione S-transferases are homodimers [28].
  • The conformational changes of penaeus penicillatus acid phosphatase during denaturation in guanidine hydrochloride solutions were studied by following changes in the intrinsic fluorescence, ultraviolet difference absorption, and circular dichroism spectra [29].
