In a body structure and Biochemistry common foreword to those diversified volumes, it kind of feels to me acceptable to think about in short what could be the comparative technique. dwelling organisms, past the range in their morphological types, have advanced a frequent diversity of uncomplicated options to deal with the several difficulties, either organisma! and environmental, with which they're confronted. quickly after the flip of the century, a few biologists learned that those suggestions could be most sensible comprehended within the framework of a comparative method integrating result of phYSiological and biochemical experiences performed on the organismic, mobile and molecular degrees. the advance of this technique among either physiologists and biochemists remained, even though, tremendous sluggish until eventually recently.

Similar changes could be shown for the portmid crab Callinectes sapidus (Booth 1982) and in fac:t for many crustacean species. The decrease results partially from dec:rease in frequency of scaphogna_ thite (ventilatory, f ) pumping but, importantly, also since one (unilateral pumping) or both m • (pausing) scaphognathites may periodically cease pumping. Rec:ent evidence indicates that while initially such changes in ventilatory performance may be associated with repayment of an oxygen debt or with removal of CO built up in previous pariods of stress, the period of 2 hyperventilation far outlasts the condition it is meant to alleviate and probably results from a stress induced increase in levels of neurohormones such as 5HT, dopamine or the longer acting neoropeptides which are known to increase ventilatory and cardiac pumping (Mc:Mahon and Wilkens, 1983).

Differences between the active sites of the mollusc and arthropod hemocyanins have long been recognl~ed, with the predominant functional distinc:tion being the extent that they become irreversibly oxidi~ed by hydrogen peroxide. In the molluscan hemocyanins, oxidative processes at the active site are initiated upon peroxide addition, but the methemocyanin form that is generated is capable of further interaction with peroxide that returns the hemocyanin to the oxygenated state and, in a cyclic fashion, eventually depletes the hydrogen peroxide concentration in solution.

Bunita show a "string of beads" structure with 7~8 flexibly connected globules (Siezen and van Bruggen, 1974). :, 1977; Lontie and Witters, 1973). : pomatia Cl~hemocyanin seem to be heterogeneous in electrophoretic mobility, as judged by the reversible boundary spreading test (Siezen and van Oriel, 1973). The presence of two different polypeptide chains in this hemocyanin was suggested, based upon the interpretation of the time course of the proteolytic digestion of the native molecule (Brouwer and Kuiper, 1973).
