Published: 15 April 2004
...Andreas Ziegler; Dirk Weihrauch; Monica Hagedorn; David W. Towle; Reiner Bleher SUMMARY The formation and resorption of CaCO 3 by epithelial cell layers require epithelial transport of protons. We used the anterior sternal epithelium of the terrestrial isopod Porcellio scaber as a model to study...

... crystals in permeabilised anterior and posterior sternal epithelium cells of Porcellio scaber during Ca 2+ -transporting and non-transporting stages of the moulting cycle using polarised-light microscopy. The results indicate ATP-dependent uptake of Ca 2+ into organelles. Half-maximal crystal growth...

...JONATHAN C. WRIGHT; MICHAEL J. O'DONNELL Active water vapour absorption in Porcellio scaber is associated with the endogenous production of strongly hyperosmotic fluid in the pleoventral chamber (pleoventralraum; PV). Pre-desiccated animals show increased pleon fluid secretion within 1–2 min...
