Finally, extended periods of reduced hemocyanin
levels may cause additional respiratory stress and increased susceptibility to infection because hemocyanin
plays a major role in immune function and wound repair (Adachi et al., 2005; Coates et al., 2011).
IgG response after immunization with keyhole limpet hemocyanin
In ablated group reproductive-stage samples, a fragment of hemocyanin
subunit 2 was identified, with an average mass of 70.9 kDa.
No significances were detected in the concentration of hemocyanin
, cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose or total protein in hemolymph.
We administered either PBS, unpulsed, or ID-pulsed DC therapy as described previously, then immunized the mice with keyhole limpet hemocyanin
(KLH), a protein commonly used to examine and elicit immune responses.

of Helix aspersa maxima DSC: Differential scanning calorimetry Tris-HCl: Tris(hydroxymethyl)aminomethane hydrochloride HEPES: 4-(2-Hydroxyethyl)-1-piperazineethanesulfonic acid.
As previously mentioned, nitrite transforms hemocyanin
into meta-hemocyanin, decreasing the delivery of oxygen to the tissues.
Glycans derived from hemocyanins
is the Cu(I)-containing oxygen transporter glycoprotein of most arthropod and mollusc species.
P Jiang et al., "Identification and agglutination properties of hemocyanin
from the mud crab (Scylla serrata)" Fish And Shellfish Immunology, vol.
 investigated the preparation of a support matrix composed by gold nanoparticles, QCs and CB for immobilization of hemocyanin
took such an approach by molecularly cloning, characterizing, and quantifying the gene expression of hemocyanin
subunit 1 (MnHc-1) in oriental river prawn.
