The functional importance and significance of ecdysteroids in molt-cycle regulation of the blue crab, Callinectes sapidus
This study aims to expand our understanding of how ecdysteroids and neuropeptide hormones (MIH/CHH) regulate molting in crustaceans using the blue crab Callinectes sapidus as a model animal. The hypothesis of this study ...
ECDYSONE AND RETINOID-X RECEPTORS OF THE BLUE CRAB, Callinectes sapidus: CLONING AND TEMPORAL EXPRESSION PATTERNS IN EYESTALK GANGLIA AND Y-ORGANS DURING THE MOLT CYCLE
The molt cycle in decapod crustaceans, including the blue crab, Callinectes sapidus, is supressed by the crustacean hyperglycemic hormone (CHH) neuropeptide family and stimulated by ecdysteroids (Ecds). The Ecds are thought ...
