Published: 1 March 2006
...Gretchen M. Moeser; Heather Leba; Emily Carrington SUMMARY The blue mussel Mytilus edulis maintains a strong attachment to the substrate in high energy environments by producing byssal threads. On the shores of Rhode Island, USA, mussel attachment strength increases twofold in spring compared...

...Kathryn J. Coyne; J. Herbert Waite ABSTRACT We recently described the cDNA sequence for a unique collagenous protein, preCol-P, in the byssal threads of the marine mussel Mytilus edulis . The translated amino acid sequence encodes an unprecedented block-copolymer-like sequence with a central...

... that Geukensia demissa gills use sulfide as a respiratory substrate when given the choice and thus function metabolically as facultative chemolithoheterotrophs. Similar conclusions could not be drawn for the ciliated gills from Mytilus edulis , a marine mussel from aerated habitats, or for the ciliated lungs...

... between components of these systems. As a case study, we apply the model to the blue mussel Mytilus edulis by investigating the effect on performance of changes in the gap between neighboring tentacles. Our model suggests that the observed gaps between tentacles in M. edulis reflect flow-maximizing...

...Xiaoxia Qin; J. Herbert Waite ABSTRACT Byssal threads of the common mussel Mytilus edulis contain collagenous molecules from which two pepsin-resistant fragments have been isolated and characterized. These show a complementary distribution along the length of the thread, such that one predominates...

... Mytilus edulis Mytilus californianus gill epithelia Intertidal animals may be exposed to abrupt, but transient, changes in external salinity ( Stickle and Ahokas, 1974 ). For osmoconforming animals, including marine mussels of the genus Mytilus , this can result in large changes...

...Michael A. Rice; Grover C. Stephens ABSTRACT The uptake of amino acids by the non-gill epithelia of the mantle cavity of Mytilus edulis L. was studied and compared with uptake by the gills. Amino acid entry rates and the subsequent distribution of amino acids to the other tissues of the animals...
