  • Shared skeletal support in a coral-hydroid symbiosis. [Journal Article]
    PLoS One 2011; 6(6):e20946Pantos O, Hoegh-Guldberg O
  • Hydroids form symbiotic relationships with a range of invertebrate hosts. Where they live with colonial invertebrates such as corals or bryozoans the hydroids may benefit from the physical support and protection of their host's hard exoskeleton, but how they interact with them is unknown. Electron microscopy was used to investigate the physical interactions between the colonial hydroid Zanclea ma…
  • Find structural aspects of anthozoan desmocyte development (phylum Cnidaria). [Journal Article]
    Tissue Cell 1982; 14(1):85-96Tidball JG
  • The fine structural changes associated with the differentiation of skeletogenic cells into cells specialized in binding soft tissues onto skeletal structures are described in the gorgonian coral, Leptogorgia virgulata (Lam.). These binding cells are called desmocytes. The sequence of events in desmocyte development includes: growth of the plasma membrane, invagination of the mesoglea-end of the c…
  • The nature of cnidarian desmocytes. [Journal Article]
    Tissue Cell 1969; 1(4):619-32Chapman DM
  • The electron microscope reveals that the cnidarian desmocyte is an ectodermal cell which forms acidophil protein tonofibrillae intracellularly. One end of the cell is bound to mesogleal fibrils; the other becomes embedded in the thickening cuticle. The bundle of tonofibrillae later becomes rivet-shaped and the cell dies, but still the mesoglea remains bound to the cuticle by means of the rivet. T…
