Data from: Concholepas concholepas Ferritin H-like subunit (CcFer): molecular characterization and single nucleotide polymorphism associated to innate immune response

Jacqueline Chávez-Mardones, Valentina Valenzuela-Muñoz, Gustavo Núñez-Acuña, Waleska Maldonado-Aguayo & Cristian Gallardo-Escárate
Ferritin has been shown as the principal protein of iron storage and iron detoxification, playing a pivotal role for the cellular homeostasis in living organisms. However, recent studies in marine invertebrates have suggested its association with innate immune system. In the present study, one Ferritin subunit was identified from the gastropod Concholepas concholepas (CcFer), which was fully characterized by Rapid Amplification of cDNA Ends technique. Simultaneously, a challenge test was performed to evaluate the immune...

Data from: SNP discovery and high resolution melting analysis from massive transcriptome sequencing in the California red abalone Haliotis rufescens

Valentina Valenzuela-Muñoz, Cristian Gallardo-Escárate & José Miguel Araya-Garay
The California red abalone, Haliotis rufescens that belongs to the Haliotidae family, is the largest species of abalone in the world that has sustained the major fishery and aquaculture production in the USA and Mexico. This native mollusk has not been evaluated or assigned a conservation category even though in the last few decades it was heavily exploited until it disappeared in some areas along the California coast. In Chile, the red abalone was introduced...

Data from: Microbial life in a fjord: metagenomic analysis of a microbial mat in Chilean Patagonia

Juan A. Ugalde, Maria J. Gallardo, Camila Belmar, Práxedes Muñoz, Nathaly Ruiz-Tagle, Sandra Ferrada-Fuentes, Carola Espinoza, Eric E. Allen & Victor A. Gallardo
The current study describes the taxonomic and functional composition of metagenomic sequences obtained from a filamentous microbial mat isolated from the Comau fjord, located in the northernmost part of the Chilean Patagonia. The taxonomic composition of the microbial community showed a high proportion of members of the Gammaproteobacteria, including a high number of sequences that were recruited to the genomes of Moritella marina MP-1 and Colwellia psycherythraea 34H, suggesting the presence of populations related to...
