Microstructural and biochemical characterization of the nanoporous sucker rings from Dosidicus gigas
Recent interest in the development of environmentally benign routes to the synthesis of novel multifunctional materials has resulted in numerous investigations into structure-function relationships of a wide range of ...
Dramatic fighting by male cuttlefish for a female mate
(University of Chicago Press, 2017-05-02)
Male cuttlefish compete for females with a repertoire of visually dramatic behaviors. Laboratory experiments have explored this system in Sepia officinalis, but corroborative field data have eluded collection attempts by ...
Bryostatin enhancement of memory in Hermissenda
(Marine Biological Laboratory, 2006-06)
Bryostatin, a potent agonist of protein kinase C (PKC), when administered to Hermissenda was found to affect acquisition of an associative learning paradigm. Low bryostatin concentrations (0.1 to 0.5 ng/ml) enhanced memory ...
Creation of the Marine Resource Center at MBL
The creation of the Station Biologique de Roscoff In France in 1859 heralded a century of study of marine animals. In the US, Congress created the U.S. Commission of Fish and Fisheries in 1871 to investigate declining fish ...
Experimental evidence that ovary and oviducal gland extracts influence male agonistic behavior in squids
(Marine Biological Laboratory, 2004-02)
Recent investigations of sensory and behavioral cues that initiate sexual selection processes in the squid Loligo pealeii have determined that egg capsules deposited on the substrate provide a strong visual and chemotactile ...
Lethal marine snow : pathogen of bivalve mollusc concealed in marine aggregates
We evaluated marine aggregates as environmental reservoirs for a thraustochytrid pathogen, Quahog Parasite Unknown (QPX), of the northern quahog or hard clam, Mercenaria mercenaria. Positive results from in situ hybridization ...
Lack of growth enhancement by exogenous growth hormone treatment in yellow perch (Perca flavescens) in four separate experiments
The effect of exogenous growth hormone (GH) treatment on the growth of juvenile yellow perch (Perca flavescens) was investigated in four experiments. In the first two experiments, juvenile yellow perch were reared at either ...
Development and validation of a real-time quantitative PCR assay for the detection and quantification of Perkinsus marinus in the Eastern oyster, Crassostrea virginica
(National Shellfisheries Association, 2009-08)
Perkinus marinus causes a devastating disease, known as Dermo, in the Eastern oyster Crassostrea virginica. Routine detection of the disease is traditionally accomplished by the use of the Ray/Makin assay, using Fluid ...
