We investigated developmental performance of early life stages of the ascidian Ciona intestinalis (derived from populations of anthropogenically impacted and control sites) to an extreme weather event (i.e. marine...

... in the genome of Ciona intestinalis identified a single Kv4 gene and a single KChIP gene, implying that the diversification of both genes occurred during early vertebrate evolution, since the corresponding mammalian gene families are formed by several paralogues. In this study we describe the cloning...

... in ionophore-challenged tissues from the tunicate, Ciona intestinalis . Because this approach without HPLC or some other form of high-resolution purification cannot differentiate between 2- and 3-series PGs (and other non-PG components), they expressed their results as `ng immunoreactive PGE'rather than ng...

Eicosanoid generation by both heart and blood cells was measured. The major lipoxygenase products formed were both...
