The reports refer mostly to heavy metal content in the whole prawn body whereas results from this study were based on heavy metal content in two parts; cephalothorax
The rhabdom layer extends backward beneath the dorsal carapace of the cephalothorax
without interruption to form the thoracic eye [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 3A OMITTED].
Amplicon Express staff was responsible for further sample preparation including separation of head (cephalothorax
) from tail and immediate placement of the cephalothorax
into their proprietary RNA isolation buffer.
Taken together, the eyes give a visual field of almost 360[degrees] around the cephalothorax
The orientation of the embryo within the EC remained the same, with the funiculus, or attachment stalk, at the distal edge of the presumptive cephalothorax
DNA was extracted front the cephalothorax
using the Wizard DNA extraction kit from Promega Corp (Madison, WI).
In contrast, the externae of Thilacoplethus (= Thompsonia) reinhardi, ranging from 1 to 23, were more clumped on the host, equally distributed on the right and left halves of the hermit body, and more diffused, involving the dorsal side of the abdomen, the cephalothorax
, and even the pereiopods and chelipeds.
Because the microsphere suspension has a bright, yellow-green color, its circulation could usually be seen initially through the thin membranes on the ventral surface of the cephalothorax
and abdomen of the lobster.
Technically, spiders have only two body parts-the abdomen and a cephalothorax
that comprises both head and thorax-but they are also usually not in 18-karat yellow gold, so some poetic license is definitely permissible here.
The LEs are located dorsolaterally on the cephalothorax
Rostrum minute, fused to cephalothorax
, with two sensilla.
Praepineal and paired lateral fields on the dorsal surface, and postoral and ventrolateral fields on the ventral surface of the cephalothorax
can be distinguished (Obruchev & Mark-Kurik 1965, p.
