To assess the contribution of the enzyme itself, we cloned orthologous Na + /K + -ATPase α-subunits from an Antarctic ( Pareledone sp.; –1.8°C) and a temperate octopus ( Octopus bimaculatus ; ∼18°C), and compared their turnover rates...

...W. R. A. MUNTZ; J. GWYTHER If two stimuli are presented to an octopus simultaneously, but at different distances from the animal, the nearer of the two is usually attacked. This preference was used to test the ability of octopuses to discriminate distance. White discs, 37 mm in diameter, were used...
