J Exp Biol (2022) 225 (10): jeb243813.
Published: 31 May 2022
...R. L. Crane; M. W. Denny ABSTRACT Even though mollusks' capacity to repair shell damage is usually studied in response to a single event, their shells have to defend them against predatory and environmental threats throughout their potentially multi-decadal life. We measured whether and how...

...R. L. Crane; J. L. Diaz Reyes; M. W. Denny ABSTRACT Hard external armors have to defend against a lifetime of threats yet are traditionally understood by their ability to withstand a single attack. Survival of bivalve mollusks thus can depend on the ability to repair shell damage between encounters...

...Kathrin I. Thiede; Jan Born; Albrecht P. A. Vorster ABSTRACT Sleep is essential for memory consolidation after learning as shown in mammals and invertebrates such as bees and flies. Aplysia californica displays sleep, and sleep in this mollusk was also found to support memory for an operant...

... in the main lophotrochozoan phyla including mollusks ( Endress et al., 2018 ; Stewart et al., 2014 ; Veenstra, 2010 ), annelids ( Conzelmann et al., 2013 ) and platyhelminths ( Koziol et al., 2016 ), the biological role of the mature peptides has only been investigated in a few mollusks. In the pond snail...

.... Further research is needed to confirm this hypothesis. Previous studies on limpets ( Dong et al., 2017 ; Han et al., 2013 ) show that some mollusks can recover from reaching T crit but that T flat is invariably lethal. This is in contrast to crabs, which die if they reach T crit ( Tepolt...

J Exp Biol (2020) 223 (10): jeb220277.
Published: 27 May 2020
...R. L. Crane; M. W. Denny ABSTRACT Mollusk shells protect against diverse environmental and predatory physical threats, from one-time impacts to chronic, low-magnitude stresses. The effectiveness of shells as armor is often quantified with a test of shell strength: increasing force is applied until...

Published: 14 June 2018
...R. L. Crane; S. M. Cox; S. A. Kisare; S. N. Patek ABSTRACT Many predators fracture strong mollusk shells, requiring specialized weaponry and behaviors. The current shell fracture paradigm is based on jaw- and claw-based predators that slowly apply forces (high impulse, low peak force). However...

..., the origin of hemocytes, the cells involved in innate immunity, is unknown in bivalves and current knowledge about mollusk adult somatic stem cells is scarce. Here we identify a population of adult somatic precursor cells and show their differentiation into hemocytes. Oyster gill contains an as yet...

... of the marine mollusk Aplysia californica , in which the same muscles mediate biting (an attempt to grasp food) and swallowing (ingestion of food). Biting and swallowing responses were compared using magnetic resonance imaging of intact, behaving animals and a three-dimensional kinematic model. Biting...
