Abstract

Determining how, when, and why energy allocation occurs based on different life history traits, provides core knowledge for understanding evolution, ecology, and conservation of populations. We assumed that, in seasonal environments, Anodontites trapesialis, a common freshwater mussel in the...

Abstract

Oysters are difficult to classify because of plasticity in shell morphology. Difficulties in classification have hindered the understanding of oyster diversity and evolution. Recent molecular studies of living oysters have revealed high genetic diversity at species, population, and genome levels....

Abstract

Oysters, the common name for a number of different bivalve molluscs, are the worldwide aquaculture species and also play vital roles in the function of ecosystem. As invertebrate, oysters have evolved an integrated, highly complex innate immune system to recognize and eliminate various invaders via ...

Abstract

Poor clinical outcomes (disfigurement, amputation, and death) and significant economic losses in the aquaculture industry can be attributed to the potent opportunistic human pathogen Vibrio vulnificus. V. vulnificus, as well as the bivalves (oysters) it naturally colonizes, is indigenous to...

Abstract

Interferon regulatory factors (IRF), a family of transcription factors, are involved in the regulation of interferon to response the pathogen infection. Here, three IRF-like genes including CgIRF1a, CgIRF1b and CgIRF8 were identified in the genome of the oyster C. gigas. Among these genes, CgIRF1a...

Abstract

Insulin Related Peptides (IRPs) belong to the insulin superfamily and possess a typical structure with two chains, B and A, linked by disulphide bonds. As the sequence conservation is usually low between members, IRPs are classified according to the number and position of their disulphide bonds. In ...

Abstract

Speciation mechanisms in marine organisms have attracted great interest because of the apparent lack of substantial barriers to genetic exchange in marine ecosystems. Marine mussels of the Mytilus edulis species complex provide a good model to study mechanisms underlying species formation. They...

Abstract

P38 mitogen-activated protein kinases are serine/threonine protein kinases reportedly involved in the innate immunity of vertebrates and invertebrates. In the present study, a P38 homolog (CgP38) was characterized from the Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas. The full-length cDNA of CgP38 was of 1515...

Abstract

SOX family is composed of transcription factors that play vital roles in various developmental processes. Comprehensive understanding on evolution of the SOX family requires full characterization of SOX genes in different phyla. Mollusca is the second largest metazoan phylum, but till now,...

Abstract

The invertebrate innate immune system functions in immune defence and the stress response. However, knowledge of the genetic and evolutionary patterns of innate immune genes in Mollusca is limited, especially for oysters. Such information would help clarify how oysters adapt to pathogen-rich...
