Disease relevance of Gastropoda


High impact information on Gastropoda

  • In the present work, data from within the gastropods and a broad survey of metazoan mtDNA suggest that tRNA leucine duplication and remolding events have occurred independently at least seven times within three major animal lineages [4].
  • We have assembled a database of the geographic ranges of 3,916 species of marine prosobranch gastropods living on the shelves of the western Atlantic and eastern Pacific Oceans, from the tropics to the Arctic Ocean [5].
  • We report the rapid interspecific divergence of cDNA encoding a major acrosomal protein of unknown function (TMAP) of sperm from five species of teguline gastropods [6].
  • Cerebrin-like immunoreactivity is also present in Lymnaea stagnalis suggesting that cerebrin-like peptides may be widespread throughout gastropoda [7].
  • Sialic acids in gastropods [8].

Associations of Gastropoda with chemical compounds


Gene context of Gastropoda

  • This is the first demonstration of the localization of RALBP in the Gastropoda Onchidium stalk eye [23].
  • A comparison of our data with previously published studies indicates that SLB cell homologs may exist in other gastropods as well [24].
  • D-Aspartate oxidase and D-amino acid oxidase were found in high activity in the tissues of representative species of terrestrial gastropods [18].
  • We conclude that the somatostatin- and calcitonin-like substances may serve as modulators of the internal defense system of gastropods [25].
  • Thirteen species of terrestrial gastropods from the Kingsbury State Fish and Wildlife Area, Indiana, were examined for the presence of third-stage larvae (L3s) of the meningeal worm, Parelaphostrongylus tenuis, during the summers of 1987 and 1988 [26].
