Reexamination of the contributions of aerobic and anaerobic energy production during swimming in the bivalve mollusk limaria fragilis family limidae


, : Reexamination of the contributions of aerobic and anaerobic energy production during swimming in the bivalve mollusk limaria fragilis family limidae. Australian Journal of Marine & Freshwater Research 34(6): 909-914

The file shell L. fragilis displays a slow sustained style of swimming indicative of basically aerobic mechanisms of ATP production. Although it had been proposed that anaerobic glycolysis and arginine phosphate did not contribute to powering swimming, the discovery of high activity of arginine kinase and significant activities of strombine and alanopine dehydrogenases in the adductor muscle led to a re-examination of the relative contributions of aerobic metabolism, anaerobic glycolysis and arginine phosphate during swimming. Whereas aerobic metabolism predominates with only a minor contribution from anaerobic glycolysis, arginine phosphate supplied up to 23% of the ATP used during 5 min of sustained swimming.

The file shell, L. hians, responded to stimulation with extracts of starfish or whelks by a series of 60-68 valve snaps during 5-7 min. The time of active swimming was assumed to be 3 min. Swimming was powered by the single adductor muscle, which...

The 1st process concerns a reduction in the importance of the shell as a means of prote...
