Although numerous haemolymph-derived crustacean lectins are described, few have been reported for the American lobster Homarus americanus. In the present study, affinity chromatography was used to isolate and partially describe the carbohydrate affinity of four new lectins from H. americanus plasma....

Two antimicrobial peptides from haemocytes of the American lobster, Homarus americanus H. Milne Edwards 1837, were isolated and partially characterised - the first such description for this species. CAP-2, an approximately 12 kDa peptide, contained amino acid sequences corresponding to the predicted...

An intermoult male American lobster, Homarus americanus, with severe intestinal lesions was encountered while collecting samples of aerobic intestinal bacteria from lobsters held in an artificial sea-water recirculation aquarium system. Grossly, the intestine was firm, thickened, and white. Histolog...

Biochemistry panels are used to help identify tissue injury (e.g., because of inflammation, trauma or hypoxia) inhuman and veterinary medicine in part, by detecting increased enzyme activity in serum or plasma after release from damaged tissues. To determine if a similar approach can be used in Homa...

American lobsters Homarus americanus were inoculated with a field isolate of the Gram-positive bacterium Aerococcus viridans var. homari, causative agent of gaffkemia, at 1 x 10(6), 1 x 10(4) or 1 x 10(2) colony forming units (CFU) kg(-1) or with sterile 3% NaCl and maintained at 10 or 15 degrees C ...

Hemocytes of the American lobster (Homarus americanus H. Milne Edwards) were classified after examination of Wright-Giemsa stained cytocentrifuge preparations by brightfield light microscopy. Eleven hemocyte types were identified using morphologic criteria. The classification system was then used to...

Potassium chloride (KCl: 330 mg/ml) was assessed as an euthanasia agent in American lobsters (Homarus americanus). Two groups of 10 lobsters (408.2 to 849.9 g) were maintained at 11.9 to 12.1 degrees C ('warm') and 1.5 to 2.5 degrees C ('cold') to evaluate the possible effect of ...
