Biochemistry and Cell Biology of Artemia
The unusual life history of the brine shrimp, Artemia, and the relative ease with which it can be experimentally manipulated have long made his crustacean a favorite system for biological studies. Over the years, descriptive morphological work has given way to a rigorous analysis of biochemical and cellular aspects of the organism. The underlying theme of the work is often been developmental in nature.This book brings together a wide spectrum of topics under study in the shrimp. Analyses of gene structure and protein synthesis are combined with descriptions of protein interactions characteristic of functional cells.
