Disease relevance of Decapodiformes

  • The acidosis provoked by octopine formation in Illex was demonstrated to promote the use of the phosphagen and to protect the free energy change of ATP such that the anaerobic scope of metabolism during swimming is extended and expressed more in Illex than in Loligo [1].

Associations of Decapodiformes with chemical compounds

  • An empirical equation relating O2 consumption (power input) to pressure production during jet-propelled swimming in the squid (Illex illecebrosus) is compared with hydrodynamic estimates of the pressure-flow power output also calculated from pressure data [10].
  • Three fucose-rich glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), illexin A, illexin B and illexin C, were isolated from squid ink of Illex argentinus [11].
  • Tyrosinase (monophenol, L-DOPA:oxygen oxidoreductase) was isolated from the ink of the squid, Illex argentinus [12].
  • A cysteine-activated protease isolated from todarodes pacificus squid degrades collagen below its denaturation temperature [13].
  • Squid (Todarodes pacificus) was sliced, washed, and then salted with 5, 10, and 20% (wt/wt) sodium chloride [14].

Gene context of Decapodiformes

  • A cDNA for rhodopsin was isolated from a library constructed from poly(A)+RNA of the squid (Todarodes pacificus) retina [3].
  • Anti-IRBP also reacted with pure RALBP prepared from Todarodes pacificus [15].
  • Squid (Todarodes pacificus) liver RNase (RNase Tp) was purified [16].
  • Comparison of two offshore squid species (Loligo pealei and Illex illecebrosus) with the estuarine squid L.brevis indicates that the latter uses a strategy to delay the exploitation of high-energy phosphates and protect energy levels at higher than the minimum levels (-42 kJ/mol) characterizing fatigue in the other species [17].
