Development of a real time quantitative PCR assay for the hard clam pathogen Quahog Parasite Unknown (QPX)
Quahog Parasite Unknown (QPX) is a thraustochytrid pathogen responsible for catastrophic mortalities of the northern quahog (hard clam) Mercenaria mercenaria. A real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) assay ...
New species longevity record for the northern quahog (=hard clam), Mercenaria mercenaria
(National Shellfisheries Association, 2011-04)
Twenty-two large shells (>90 mm shell height) from a sample of live collected hard shell clams, Mercenaria mercenaria, from Buzzards Bay, Woods Hole, Cape Cod, MA, were subjected to sclerochronological analysis. Annually ...
Influence of host genetic origin and geographic location on QPX disease in northern quahogs (=hard clams), Mercenaria mercenaria
(National Shellfisheries Association, 2007-04)
QPX (Quahog Parasite Unknown) a protistan pathogen of northern quahogs (=hard clams), Mercenaria mercenaria, has caused disease outbreaks in maritime Canada, and in Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, and Virginia, USA. ...
An unexpected diversity of photoreceptor classes in the longfin squid, Doryteuthis pealeii
(Public Library of Science, 2015-09-09)
Cephalopods are famous for their ability to change color and pattern rapidly for signaling and camouflage. They have keen eyes and remarkable vision, made possible by photoreceptors in their retinas. External to the eyes, ...
Quantification of cuttlefish (Sepia officinalis) camouflage : a study of color and luminance using in situ spectrometry
Cephalopods are renowned for their ability to adaptively camouflage on diverse backgrounds. Sepia officinalis camouflage body patterns have been characterized spectrally in the laboratory but not in the field due to the ...
Scientific names of organisms : attribution, rights, and licensing
(BioMed Central, 2014-02-04)
As biological disciplines extend into the ‘big data’ world, they will need a names-based infrastructure to index and interconnect distributed data. The infrastructure must have access to all names of all organisms if it ...
Changes in reflectin protein phosphorylation are associated with dynamic iridescence in squid
Many cephalopods exhibit remarkable dermal iridescence, a component of their complex, dynamic camouflage and communication. In the species Euprymna scolopes, the light-organ iridescence is static and is due to reflectin ...
DGGE-based detection method for Quahog Parasite Unknown (QPX)
Quahog Parasite Unknown (QPX) is a significant cause of hard clam Mercenaria mercenaria mortality along the northeast coast of the United States. It infects both wild and cultured clams, often annually in plots that are ...
