...Roy E. Weber; Jane W. Behrens; Hans Malte; Angela Fago SUMMARY With the aim of understanding the molecular underpinnings of the enormous variation in the temperature sensitivity of hemocyanin–O 2 affinity encountered in crustaceans, we measured O 2 binding to Carcinus maenas hemocyanin at two...

...Raymond P. Henry SUMMARY Carbonic anhydrase (CA) activity and relative expression of CA mRNA were measured in the gills of the euryhaline green crab Carcinus maenas in response to eyestalk ablation (ESA), injection of eyestalk extract and exposure to low salinity. For crabs acclimated to 32 p.p.t...

.... In the euryhaline green shore crab Carcinus maenas , active excretion of ammonia across isolated gills is reduced by inhibitors of the Na + /K + -ATPase and vacuolar-type H + -ATPase. In addition, a functional dynamic microtubule network is necessary, since application of colchicine, taxol or thiabendazole leads...

...Horst Onken; Sven Riestenpatt SUMMARY Split gill lamellae and gill cuticles of shore crabs ( Carcinus maenas ) adapted to 10 ‰ salinity were mounted in a modified Ussing-type chamber. With NaCl saline on both sides, split gill lamellae generated a short-circuit current ( I sc ) of –301±16 μA cm –2...

...K. P. RAJASHEKHAR; J. L. WILKENS In the shore crab, Carcinus maenas (L.), forward ventilation creates negative pulses of hydrostatic pressure while reversed ventilation causes dramatic positive pressure fluctuations in the branchial chamber. These pressures are transmitted via the gills...

...ROBERT K. JOSEPHSON; STOKES R. DARRELL The relationships between muscle length, fractional change in length (strain) and work output during cyclic contraction were examined in scaphognathite levator muscle L2B of the green crab Carcinus maenas (L.). The muscle was subjected to sinusoidal strain...
