In vitro reproduction of the turbellarian Urastoma cyprinae isolated from Mytilus
galloprovincialis as a Bioindicator of Microbiological Pollution of Coastal Waters: A Study Conducted in the Salento Peninsula (Italy).

SPECIES OR GROUP DESCRIPTION Mytilus
edulis Thick cluster of small mussels (>1,500 on settling panels and poles) attached to the panels and each other (~3 unit in length by 2 nun in height to ~12 mm in length by 6 mm in height).
The ChMT shows the highest similarity of 99% with Hyriopsis cumingii MT in amino acid sequence, followed by 96%, 95%, 79%, 66%, and 65% in similarity with that of Crassostrea ariakensis, Crassostrea gigas, Crassostrea virginica, Ostrea edulis, Mytilus
edulis, respectively, whereas the remaining six give similarities between 32% and 60%.
Gene expression rhythms in the mussel Mytilus
Spatial patterns of growth in the mussel, Mytilus
californianus, across a major oceanographic and biogeographic boundary at Point Conception, California, USA.
Similarly to the prevalent macroalgal species, Mytilus
trossulus and Balanus improvises had patchy distribution with higher biomasses in the central and south-eastern study areas (Figs 2, 3).
Here, however, we show that nitromusks and polycyclic musks inhibit the activity of multidrug efflux transporters responsible for multixenobiotic resistance (MXR) in gills of the marine mussel Mytilus

For the past 20 years, Waite has made it his business to learn how the marine mussel Mytilus
edulis--the indigo-shelled bivalve that often ends up in soups and appetizers -- manufactures an underwater adhesive that ranks with the world's best.
At first glance, this study may appear to be just one among numerous attempts to describe the effect of salinity on growth and respiration in Mytilus
edulis and its Baltic hybrids.
In a research which was carried out by Lima on Mytilus
gallopravincialis oyster it was clarified that Seasonal changes, changes in the volume of available food and the physiological changes of the body (through a process of growth and increased body size) as well as development of organs such as gonads cause changes in the levels of pollutants concentration and antioxidant enzymes.
Digestive gland lesions including tubular dilation, cell vacuolation, and tissue inflammation induced by exposure to contaminated sediments were reported in mussels, Mytilus
edulis (18-23), and oysters, Ostrea edulis, Crassostrea virginica, and C.
