Background: Gastropoda, with approximately 80,000 living species, is the largest class of Mollusca. Among gastropods, apple snails (family Ampullariidae) have members that are widely distributed in tropical and subtropical freshwater ecosystems and are ecologically and economically important. They exhibit various morphological and physiological adaptations to their respective habitats, which make them ideal candidates for studying adaptation, population divergence, speciation, and larger-scale patterns of diversity, including biogeography of native and invasive populations. The limited availability of...

Data from: Understanding the transition from water to land: insights from multi-omic analyses of the perivitelline fluid of apple snail eggs

Most gastropods deposit their eggs either on land or underwater, but the family Ampullariidae includes members that exhibit both underwater and aerial oviposition, making it an ideal model for understanding mechanisms underlying the evolutionary transition from water to land. We applied SDS-PAGE and LC-MS/MS to analyse the proteome of the egg perivitelline fluid (PVF) of Marisa cornuarietis – an aquatic ovipositing ampullariid. Comparison with the reported PVF proteomes of two aerial ovipositing ampullariids (Pomacea canaliculata...
