    ..The genomic architecture of these productive traits has allowed the identification of candidate genes and enriched pathways that may represent useful information for future marker-assisted selection in turbot. ..

    ..Therefore, we report the involvement of myticins in the response to a danger signal such as a simple injection in the adductor muscle. ..

    ..The main goal of this work is to present the current knowledge of the molecular mechanisms of apoptosis in mollusks and to highlight those steps that need further study. ..

  5. Romero A, Novoa B, Figueras A. Cell mediated immune response of the Mediterranean sea urchin Paracentrotus lividus after PAMPs stimulation. Dev Comp Immunol. 2016;62:29-38 pubmed publisher
    ..These results have helped us understand the cellular immune mechanisms in P. lividus and their modulation after PAMP stimulation. ..

    ..In fact, we found that the oocytes which express a higher quantity of genes such as myticins are more likely to reach success of the offspring, compared to oocytes poor in such mRNAs, whose progeny died before reaching metamorphosis. ..

Extending Immunological Profiling in the Gilthead Sea Bream, Sparus aurata, by Enriched cDNA Library Analysis, Microarray Design and Initial Studies upon the Inflammatory Response to PAMPs. Int J Mol Sci. 2017;18: pubmed publisher
    ..We have developed and validated an oligonucleotide microarray (SAQ) that provides a platform enriched for the study of gene expression in S. aurata with an emphasis upon immunity and the immune response. ..
