Influence of diatom exopolymers and biofilms on metamorphosis in the barnacle Balanus amphitrite
(Inter Research, 2005)
Natural biofilms constitute a complex network of microorganisms (bacteria, diatoms, protozoa, fungi) and their extracellular polymeric substances (EPS), which influence settlement inbenthic invertebrates. The influence of ...
Accumulation of copper and zinc by balanus amphitrite in a tropical estuary
@iBalanus amphitrite@@ (Cirripedia: Thoracica) a dominant fouling organism was analysed to assess the accumulation potentialities of copper and zinc. It was observed that it could accumulate Cu to 864.77 mu g g-1 dry wt. ...
Influence of bacterial exopolymers, conspecific adult extract and salinity on the cyprid metamorphosis of Balanus amphitrite (Cirripedia: Thoracica)
The influence of bacterial exopolymers and conspecific adult extract of Balanus amphitrite on metamorphosis of cyprid larvae at different salinities has been evaluated through laboratory assay. The bacterial exopolymers ...
Barnacle larval destination: piloting possibilities by bacteria and lectin interaction
Modulation of metamorphosis in barnacles in response to cues of biological origin is established. The bacteria associated with the barnacles also have a role in such modulations. We isolated the bacteria, Pseudomonas ...
Influence of bacterial exopolymers and the adult extract of Balanus amphitrite and Cthamalus sp. on cyprid metamorphosis of Balanus amphitrite
(US Office of Naval Research, 1997)
Settlement of barnacle, a major fouling organism is believed to be controlled to a great extent by substratum characteristics such as, presence of conspecific adults or "gregariousness" inducing factors. Exopolymers secreted ...
Factors regulating the production of different inducers in Pseudomonas aeruginosa with reference to larval metamorphosis in Balanus amphitrite
Gregarious settlement in barnacles has been related to the settlement-inducing compounds from adult conspecifics, bacteria in the biofilms, and their interaction. Elucidation of larval settlement cues from these sources ...
