Furthermore, the skins of the Atlantic hagfish Myxine
glutinosa have minimal influence on whole-body flexural stiffness during steady swimming movements across various body speeds (Long et al., 2002b).

The oral cavity, the 'jaws' and the horny teeth of Myxine
The species we'll miss is Myxine
glutinosa, or the hagfish, which scavenges the ocean bottom for carrion.
An Aqp4 homolog was initially isolated from the Atlantic hagfish (Myxine
glutinosa, Linnaeus, 1758; Cutler, 2006a, 2007b), but was subsequently isolated from the Pacific hagfish (Eptatretus stoutii Lockington, 1878); this gene was studied much more extensively (Nishimoto et al., 2007).

The most commonly found prey species, in order of abundance, were: 1) Madeira lanternfish (Ceratoscopelus maderensis), 3876 individuals, all but one from a single stomach; 2) silver hake (Merluccius bilinearis), 945 individuals from 22 stomachs; 3) sand lance (Ammodytes spp.), 271 individuals from a single stranded dolphin; 4) spoonarm octopus (Bathypolypus bairdii), 212 individuals from 14 stomachs; 5) haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus), 107 individuals from eight stomachs; 6) Atlantic hagfish (Myxine
glutinosa), 105 individuals from 17 stomachs; and 7) red hake (Urophycis chuss), 103 individuals from 14 stomachs.
To detect the presence of proteins antigenically similar to mammalian apical NHE isoforms in ancestral craniates, membrane proteins from Hagfish (Myxine
glutinosa) and Skate (Raja erinacea) gills were immunoblotted with polyclonal antibodies made against NHE-2 (aa 260-280) and NHE-3 (aa 528-648).
Although many species of the dominant hagfish genus Eptatretus coil, coiling does not appear to occur in one well-studied species of the other common genus, Myxine
glutinosa (Strahan, 1963).
Representatives of Myxine
(Table 1) and Petromyzon marinus were chosen as outgroup taxa based on Kuo et al.
Gonadal development has been studied histologically in Myxine
glutinosa, Eptatretus stouti, and E.
In addition, we have partially cloned the carboxylase gene from chicken (Gallus gallus), hagfish (Myxine
glutinosa), and horseshoe crab (Limulus polyphemus).
We have cloned carboxylase homologs in full length or partial form from the beluga whale (Delphinapterus leucas), toadfish (Opsanus tau), chicken (Gallus gallus), hagfish (Myxine
glutinosa), horseshoe crab (Limulus polyphemus) and cone snail (Conus textile) in order to compare these structures to the known bovine, human, rat and mouse cDNA sequences.
In addition, we have a partial sea urchin (Strongylocentrotus drobachiensis) sequence and we have begun work on blood and solid tissue from both the annelid Glycera dibranchiata and hagfish (Myxine
