...Brett R. Aiello; Heather M. King; Melina E. Hale African lungfish Protopterus annectens can produce rotational movements around the joint between the pelvis and the pelvic fin, allowing these animals to walk across benthic substrates. In tetrapods, limb rotation at the hip joint is a common feature...

..., and only the former has thus far been cloned in fish. We successfully cloned the V1a-type and V2-type AVT receptor from the kidney of the African lungfish, Protopterus annectens , and the deduced amino acid sequences exhibited high homology with amphibian V1a- and V2-type receptors, respectively...

...Angela M. Horner; Bruce C. Jayne SUMMARY Separate studies of terrestrial and aquatic locomotion are abundant, but research addressing locomotion in transitional environments (e.g. mud) is scant. The African lungfish ( Protopterus annectens ) moves in a gradation of water to mud conditions during...
