... benefit mussels’ thermal tolerance. Thus, mussels were exposed sequentially to two different phases (heat-hardening and acclimation phases). To gain further insights into the possible mechanisms underlying the metabolic response of the heat-hardened M. galloprovincialis , metabolomics analysis...

... mollusks respond to chronic mechanical stress. Once a week for 7 months, we compressed whole live California mussels ( Mytilus californianus ) for 15 cycles at ∼55% of their predicted one-time breaking force, a treatment known to cause fatigue damage in shells. We found mussels repaired their shells...

.... We studied the capacity for repair in the intertidal mussel Mytilus californianus by compressing live mussels for 15 cycles at ∼79% of their predicted strength (critically fracturing 46% of shells), then allowing the survivors 0, 1, 2 or 4 weeks to repair. Immediately after fatigue loading, mussel...

... catastrophic fracture. This test does not capture the potential role of fatigue, a process by which chronic or repeated, low-magnitude forces weaken and break a structure. We quantified the strength and fatigue resistance of California mussel ( Mytilus californianus ) shells. Shells were fatigue tested until...

..., we review the major contributions in this field, and we focus on studies of mussels in the genus Mytilus , which are well-established models for the study of ecological physiology in fluctuating environments. Our review is organized into four main sections. First, we illustrate how the abiotic forces...

.... Subsequently, potential changes in gene expression were assessed. In this context, hyperthermia resulted in the transcriptional upregulation of Hsp70 and MT20 genes with a widely known salutary effect, preserving mussel fitness and performance under adverse environmental conditions. Interestingly, p38-MAPK...
