Oyster adductor muscle function

adductor muscle structure: a prominent organ situated in the back region of the oyster body. made of translucent whitish crescent-shaped material function: ti functions to close the oysters shell (relaxation of the adductor muscle allows the shell to gape open)

Adductor magnus muscle Adductor magnus is one of the biggest muscles of the human body and consists of two parts: the adductor and ischiocondylar (hamstring) parts. The adductor part originates from the inferior pubic ramus and the ischial ramus and inserts at the gluteal tuberosity, the medial lip of the linea aspera and the medial supracondylar line of the femur ('flesh insertion').

Adductor Muscle of the Japanese Pearl Oyster, Pinctada fucata Daisuke Funabara*, Ayaka Ohta, Jungo Sueyoshi, Satoshi Kanoh Graduate School of Bioresources, Mie University, Tsu, Japan Abstract We determined the full-length primary structure of the tropomyosin (TM)-1 and -2 proteins from the adductor muscle of the Japanese pearl oyster Pinc- UV absorption spectra of the pigment extracted from the adductor muscle scar of Pacific oyster. ‘Abs’ denotes the absorbance value, ‘Wav’ the wavelength. IR scanning spectra of the pigment extracted from the adductor muscle scar of Pacific oyster. ‘T’ denotes the transmittance, ‘Wav’ the wavenumber. When adductor muscle has been cut, place thumb over top shell above knife and lift the shell backward toward the hinge to remove the top shell. STEP #4 Complete the process by placing the blade of knife under the oyster and cutting the adductor muscle free from the lower shell.

The Adductor Muscle (C) The next picture is the actual adductor muscle that you will attach later on. Color the adductor muscle PURPLE. The Mantle (D) The next picture shows the MANTLE. The mantle is a very important organ to the oyster because it helps build new shell, is touch sensitive, store nutrients, and helps the oyster breath. The adductor longus muscle is a hip abductor muscle located in the inner thigh. This muscle controls the thigh bone's ability to move inward and from side to side. The muscle originates in the ...
