We have cloned the full-length cDNA of the first member of a new cytochrome P450 (CYP) family from the Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas. This new CYP gene was obtained based on an initial 331 bp fragment previously identified among the list of the differentially expressed genes in oysters exposed to untreated domestic sewage. The full-length CYP has an open reading frame of 1500 bp and based on its deduced aminoacid sequence was classified as a member of a new subfamily, CYP356A1. A phylogenetic analysis showed that CYP356A1 is closely related to members of the CYP17 and CYP1 subfamilies. Semiquantitative RT-PCR was performed to analyze the CYP356A1 expression in different tissues of the oyster (digestive gland, gill, mantle and adductor muscle). Results showed slightly higher CYP356A1 expression in digestive gland and mantle, than the other tissues, indicating a possible role of the CYP356A1 in the xenobiotic biotransformation and/or steroid metabolism.

Uptake of heavy metals, organic trace contaminants and viruses by the Japanese oyster, Crassostrea gigas, grown in a waste recycling aquaculture system : final report Mann, Roger; Vaughn, James M.; Landry, Edward F.; Taylor, Rodman E. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1979-05)A study of 24 weeks duration was carried out in which oysters (Crassostrea gigas) were grown in four regimes. These were: (i) on phytoplankton cultured in a mixture of secondary treated sewage effluent and seawater for ...
Desperate planktotrophs : decreased settlement selectivity with age in competent eastern oyster Crassostrea virginica larvae Meyer, Kirstin S.; Wheeler, Jeanette D.; Houlihan, Erin; Mullineaux, Lauren S. (2018-07)For larvae of benthic marine invertebrate species, settlement from planktonic to benthic life is a critical transition. The “desperate larva” concept describes the tendency of larvae to accept suboptimal settlement ...
