Phospholipids of sea worms, mollusks, and arthropods

Phospholipids of sea worms, mollusks, and arthropods The phospholipid composition of organs and tissues was investigated in representatives of five phyla of marine invertebrates: Annelida (Chaetopterus variopedatus, Serpula vermicularis), Echiuroidea (Urechis unicinctus), Sipunculoidea (Phascolosoma japonicum), Mollusca (Gastropoda: Tectonatica janthostoma, Neptunea polycostata; Bivalvia: Mactra sulcataria, Peronidia venuloza, Patinopecten yessoensis, Crenomytilus grayanus; Cephalopoda: Octopus conispadiceus, Todarodes pacificus), and Arthropoda (Paralythodes camtschatica, Erimacrus isenbekii, Hemigrapsus sanguineus, Pinixa rathbunii). The specificity of phospholipid distribution was shown to be related to the taxonomic position of marine invertebrates and functional properties of their organs and tissues. In Echiuroidea, Sipunculoidea, and Arthropoda, ceramide aminoethylphosphonate was found only in the digestive organs. This suggests an exogenous origin of this phospholipid.
