Etymologies

Sorry, no etymologies found.

Examples

  • The Amphioxus has no gene for fibrinogen, the final step in the modern clotting cascade, yet it still clots its haemolymph.

    The Panda's Thumb: Irreducible Complexity Archives

  • Amphioxus is a primitive chordate, more primitive than lampreys, that clot their haemolymph.

    The Panda's Thumb: Irreducible Complexity Archives

  • Species parasitic on invertebrates have a slightly modified stylet of the same nature to pierce the cuticle of their prey, for the purpose of feeding on haemolymph.

    Nematoda

  • The foot is then anchored in the sand/organic matter as haemolymph is pumped into the end of the foot.

    Mollusca

  • Instead the blood (or haemolymph) flows into open cavities and bathes a large surface area of cells, passing on the needed materials directly, before returning to the heart.

    Mollusca

  • Problem #3: Acidity resulting from anaerobic metabolism builds up in the blood (haemolymph).

    Mollusca

  • The chordate amphioxus in modern taxonomy, Branchiostoma and its relatives, a protovertebrate that looks a bit like a minature eel, does clot its haemolymph.

    Behe vs Sea Squirts - The Panda's Thumb

  • Fish lack the intrinsic coagulation system, Jawless fish lack Factor X and the cephalochordates lack pretty much everything except a thrombin-like protein, but they can still clot their haemolymph.

    Behe vs Sea Squirts - The Panda's Thumb

  • As sea squirts do not clot their haemolymph, the most likely role of the short Factor XIII is in wound repair, as it is in vertebrates, where it crosslinks and stabilises tissue matrix proteins 11,12.

    Behe vs Sea Squirts - The Panda's Thumb

  • In the haemolymph, the SeTre-1/SeTre-2 ratio remained almost constant, reflecting a dynamic balance of the insect blood sugar, but the total activity of SeTre-1 and SeTre-2 in individual insects changed dramatically at various stages.
