Therefore, the objective of this study was to analyze the microbiota of Crassostrea
gigas larvae and juveniles grown at a low pH value (7.38) to test whether there is an effect on the structure of the resident communities of the host organism.
Potential of the HSP70 protein family as biomarker of Crassostrea
virginica under natural conditions (Ostreoida: Ostreidae)
For example, Crassostrea
virginica in five tropical lagoons in the Gulf of Mexico showed significant differences in the duration and intensity of their reproductive stages, resulting in a reproductive pattern that varied from annual to continuous, between populations (Aranda et al.
This identification was performed by multiplex PCR of oysters of the genus Crassostrea
, described by MELO et al.
Jinjiang oyster (JO, Crassostrea
rivularis), commonly cultivated in the intertidal zones in south China, has been traditionally harvested and cooked as a food source for hundred years .
A similar harmful pattern has been seen involving the oyster Crassostrea
gigas (Thunberg, 1793), which impaired the mobility of the gastropod Littorina littorea (Linnaeus, 1758).
There is fascination in scientific naming as evidenced in the time it took scientists to name Crassostrea
We focused on larval stages of the Pacific oyster Crassostrea
gigas, a species that offers several experimental advantages: availability of genetically pedigreed lines, manipulation of ploidy, and tractability of larval forms for in vivo studies of physiological processes.
Since the first report of Perkinsus marinus infecting the American oyster Crassostrea
virginica (Gmelin, 1791) in the Gulf of Mexico (Mackin et al., 1950), other species of the genus Perkinsus have been reported infecting several species of marine mollusks around the world (Lester and Davis, 1981; Azevedo, 1989; Blackbourn et al., 1998; Villalba et al., 2004; Choi and Park, 2010).
Abstract: A total of five native oyster species namely; Crassostrea
