Energy metabolism pathways of hydrothermal vent animals: adaptations to a food-rich and sulfide-rich deep-sea environment.
Examined the large pogonophoran tube worm Riftia pachyptila, clam Calyptogena magnifica, crab Bythograea thermydron, polychaete worm Alvinella pompejana, and an unidentified zoarcid fish. In general, enzymic activities found in the tissues of the vent animals were qualitatively and quantitatively similar to those of phylogenetically related shallow-living marine species, suggesting that the types of energy metabolism pathways, and the potential flux rates through these pathways, are similar in both groups. -from Authors
