Transcripts encoding Limulus polyphemus
opsins 1 and 2 (LpOps1 and LpOps2) were identified in cDNA libraries of LE and ME, respectively, using classical homology cloning approaches (Smith et al., 1993); and two additional LpOps1-like genes (LpOps3 and LpOps4) were identified through polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and Sanger sequencing of Limulus genomic DNA (Dalai et al., 2003).
The table should read as follows: Table 3 The number of individuals sampled (n), coefficient values (a, [log.sub.e](b)), standard errors for values (SE[a], SE[[log.sub.e](b)]), and correlation coefficient ([r.sub.2]) of the relationship between prosomal width and weight for horseshoe crabs (Limulus polyphemus
), loge(Wt)=[log.sub.e] (PW) x a + [log.sub.e](b).
The American horseshoe crab (Limulus polyphemus
) is a unique and fascinating living fossil, a source of food for migrating shorebirds, a source of a highly sensitive assay for bacterial endotoxin, and a commercially harvested whelk (Busycon carica and Busycotypus canaliculatus) and eel (Anquilla rostrata) bait (Novitsky 1984, Walls et al.

Genetic variation in the horseshoe crab (Limulus polyphemus
) a phylogenetic relic.
In chelicerates, Pax-6 ortholog expression has not been found in the developing eyes of the horseshoe crab Limulus polyphemus
(Linnaeus, 1758) (Blackburn et al., 2008), despite its presence in their lateral sense organ (the function of which remains unclear).
Abstract--Horseshoe crabs (Limulus polyphemus
) are valued by many stakeholders, including the commercial fishing industry, biomedical companies, and environmental interest groups.
Abstract--Adult horseshoe crabs (Limulus polyphemus
) are the preferred bait in the U.S.
