    • Amphibalanus amphitrite begins exoskeleton mineralization within 48 hours of metamorphosis 

      Metzler, Rebecca A.; O'Malley, Jessica; Herrick, Jack; Christensen, Brett; Orihuela, Beatriz; Rittschof, Daniel; Dickinson, Gary H. (The Royal Society, 2020-09-30)
      Barnacles are ancient arthropods that, as adults, are surrounded by a hard, mineralized, outer shell that the organism produces for protection. While extensive research has been conducted on the glue-like cement that ...
    • Assessing the effect of salinity on barnacle adhesion and biomineralization 

      Dickinson, Gary H.; McNichol, Conall; Orihuela, Beatriz; Rittschof, Daniel (National Shellfisheries Association, 2015)
      Barnacles are dominant members of marine biofouling communities throughout much of the world’s oceans. The base of the barnacle attaches to surfaces with secreted proteinaceous adhesives that bond with surfaces and cure. ...
    • Assessing the impacts of ocean acidification on adhesion and shell formation in the barnacle Amphibalanus amphitrite 

      Nardone, Jessica; Patel, Shrey; Siegel, Kyle; Tedesco, Dana; McNicholl, Conall G.; O'Malley, Jessica; Herrick, Jack; Metzler, Rebecca A.; Orihuela, Beatriz; Rittschof, Daniel; Dickinson, Gary H. (Frontiers, 2018-10-22)
      Barnacles are dominant members of marine intertidal communities. Their success depends on firm attachment provided by their proteinaceous adhesive and protection imparted by their calcified shell plates. Little is known ...
    • Characterizing key proteins that contribute to barnacle adhesion 

      Sison, Julian; Orihuela, Beatriz; Rittschof, Daniel; Dickinson, Gary H. (National Shellfisheries Association, 2015)
      Barnacles can tenaciously adhere to almost any surface. To stick to a surface, glues are released and form an adhesive bond between the surface and the barnacle's base plate. The predomi-nantly proteinaceous glue is ...
