    Skeletogenesis is a key morphogenetic event in the embryonic development of vertebrates and is of equal, although transient, importance in the development of the sea urchin, a marine invertebrate. The larval sea urchin does not resemble its adult form, because the sea urchin is an indirect developer, meaning its larva form must undergo metamorphosis to form the juvenile adult.

Dan (60, 61), studying the entrance of sea urchin sperm into eggs by phase-contrast and electron microscopy, discovered the acrosome reaction (AR). It is now established that this exocytotic process is one of the fundamental steps for fertilization in many species, including mammals (68, , , ).Cited by:

CYCLIC UPTAKE OF CALCIUM BY DIVIDING SEA URCHIN EGGS INTRODUC ION The present studr was undertaken to provide direct data on the uptake of calcium by dividing eggs of the sea urchin. and to relate this, as far as possibles to specific mitotic events.

The role of calcium in cell division has been a subject of interest for many years the earlier ideas. Regular Article. The Cyclic GMP-Mediated Calcium Release Pathway in Sea Urchin Eggs Is Not Required for the Rise in Calcium during Fertilization. Abstract. The mechanisms required for cGMP-induced Ca 2+ release in the sea urchin egg were investigated using both egg homogenates and intact by: Ionophore A activations of the cortex of Lytechinus pictus and Strongylocentrotus purpuratus eggs were compared in various ionic media and were found to be completely independent of the ionic composition of the external by:   In addition to acidic store alkalinization, it has been shown that fertilization of sea urchin eggs led to a change in cytosolic pH from to with a concomitant acidification of the sea water, and that the egg remains alkaline for approx.

One of these monoclonal antibodies specifically labels punctate structures which appear in the mitotic apparatus of sea urchin eggs at the beginning of prophase and disappear upon the completion of cytokinesis.

Clothier (), using calciumobserved a regular uptake and release of radio - active calcium during the first mitotic cycle of sea urchin development. Three periods of uptake were noted and were related to mitotic events.

These periods were inter- preted as being associated with (1) protein gelation preceding the. Abstract.

The first evidence for clues as to possible regulatory mechanisms of cADPR synthesis came from studies investigating the pathway for cGMP-induced Ca2+ mobilization in sea urchin eggs [5].

Instrumental in the discovery of two Ca 2+ -mobilizing second messengers, cyclic ADP-ribose and NAADP, the sea urchin has revolutionized cell biology for Cited by:   Several lines of evidence in the literature indicate that environmental stress such as starvation may initiate reallocation of sea urchin endoskeletal tissue.

Sea urchin eggs and those of most other deuterostomes are activated at fertilization by an increase in cytoplasmic free calcium concentration ([Ca 2+ ]i) that triggers the onset of the embryonic.

The process of secretory granule-plasma membrane fusion can be studied in sea urchin eggs. Micromolar calcium concentrations are all that is required to bring about exocytosisin vitro.

BoxMiami, Florida - Internal fertilization, heterogeneity of sperm population, transport of both games to the oviduct with translocation of gametes, sperm capacitation, thermotaxis, hyper-activation of motility, and recognition at the zona pellucida (vitelline envelope in urchin eggs) are the differences from the sea urchin.

Exposure of sea urchin eggs and sperm to these effluents will require adjustments in the salinity of the test solutions. It is important to maintain a constant salinity across all treatments. In addition it may be desirable to match the test salinity with that of the receiving water. Two methods are available to.

Evidence is steadily mounting that the proto-oncogenes, whose products organize and start the programs that drive normal eukaryotic cells through their chromosome replication/mitosis cycles, are transiently stimulated by sequential signals from a multi-purpose, receptor-operated mechanism (consisting of internal surges of Ca2+ and bursts of protein kinase C activity resulting from Cited by: This resulted in increased MAP kinase phosphatase activity.

Therefore, MAP kinase inactivation at fertilization in sea urchin eggs likely is the result of a combination of MEK inactivation and phosphatase activation that are directly or indirectly responsive to Ca(2+). DOI: /dbio Alternate Journal: Dev. Biol. PubMed ID: uptake during the first mitotic division in sea urchin eggs.

A definite relationship was shown to exist between the periods of uptake and specific mitotic events. The first peak of calcium 45 uptake occurred at mid-prophase and was related to gelation of spindle precursor.

The second uptake, occurring at mid-metaphase, was related to gelation of interzonal spindle precursor. The third peak. Unlike the eggs of most animals, sea urchin eggs have completed meiosis prior to fertilization and are arrested at the pronuclear stage.

Using both phosphorylation-state-specific antibodies and a MAP kinase activity assay, we observe that MAP kinase is phosphorylated and active in unfertilized sea urchin eggs and then dephosphorylated and. The Effects of Calcium-Free Seawater on the Development of Sea Urchin Embryos Amy Yanega '01 Objective The purpose of this experiment is to determine the effects of calcium-free seawater on the development of sea urchin embryos.

The NAD+ metabolite cADP-Rib (cADPR) elevates cytosolic free Ca2+ in plants and thereby plays a central role in signal transduction pathways evoked by the drought and stress hormone abscisic acid.
