Disease relevance of Crustacea

  • Effect of ambient oxygen concentration upon the acute toxicity of chlorophenols and heavy metals to the groundwater copepod Parastenocaris germanica (Crustacea) [1].

High impact information on Crustacea

  • Although crustacean tissue cholesterol content is high, Crustacea, like other arthropods; are incapable of cholesterol synthesis, and presumably are dependent for maintaining tissue cholesterol stores on the intestinal absorption of ingested sterol [2].
  • A new, simplified and overarching theory of noradrenaline function is inspired by an invertebrate model: neuromodulators in crustacea abruptly interrupt activity in neural networks and reorganize the elements into new functional networks determining the behavioral output [3].
  • Blue/purple AXT proteins are ubiquitous among invertebrate marine animals, particularly the Crustacea [4].
  • These findings allow consideration of MTH as a zinc thionein and question the view of all crustacea MT structures as copper thioneins [5].
  • It is speculated that homarine is not only a "methyl" donor but may serve as a reservoir of methyl groups in crustacea [6].

Gene context of Crustacea

  • Immunochemical and biochemical characterization of gastrin/cholecystokinin-like peptides in Palaemon serratus (Crustacea Decapoda): intermolt variations [24].
  • An area of continued interest, but of no consensus or general findings, relates to the presence and inducibility of CYP1 family members in crustacea [25].
  • Cytochromes P450 in crustacea [25].
  • Regional variation in the spatial scale of selection at MPI* and GPI* in the acorn barnacle Semibalanus balanoides (Crustacea) [26].
  • IgE-antibody reactivity to oysters and crustacea of sera from six oyster-sensitive, seven oyster- and crustacea-sensitive, and 12 crustacea-sensitive subjects was investigated [27].
