...Marcos Sterkel; Mariano Volonté; Maximiliano G. Albornoz; Juan Pedro Wulff; Mariana del Huerto Sánchez; Paula María Terán; María Teresa Ajmat; Sheila Ons ABSTRACT In ecdysozoan animals, moulting entails the production of a new exoskeleton and shedding of the old one during ecdysis. It is induced...

... of the extensor muscles themselves. The energy is then suddenly released from these stores to power the rapid, propulsive movements of the hind legs. The reliance on the mechanical storage of energy is likely to impact on jumping because growth occurs by a series of five moults, at each of which the exoskeleton...

.... Purification of Ha-CalpM showed that the 62 kDa and 68 kDa isoforms co-eluted from gel filtration and ion exchange columns at positions consistent with those of previously described Ca 2+ -dependent proteinase III(CDP III; 59 kDa). Ha-CalpM mRNA and protein did not change during the moulting cycle. The muscle...

... motor outputs in two distinct and fundamental behaviours: feeding and moulting. The FG motor pattern was found to be complex, and strongly dependent on the locust's physiological and behavioural state. Rhythmic activity of the foregut was dependent on the amount of food present in the crop; animals...

...DOUGLAS S. NEUFELD; JAMES N. CAMERON After moulting, blue crabs ( Callinectes sapidus ) acclimated to a salinity of 2‰ were able to calcify as rapidly and accumulate as much calcium as crabs in sea water. Immediately after moult, the total masses of calcium, magnesium and strontium present...

...JAMES N. CAMERON In the days immediately after moulting, manipulations of external pH, [HCO 3 − ], and [Ca 2+ ] were used to determine the nature of the rapid net Ca 2+ influx and attendant apparent net H + efflux in the blue crab ( Callinectes sapidus Rathbun). Both fluxes were strongly inhibited...
