Abstract

1. 1. The location of genetically distinct types of collagen in muscular tissue of the kuruma prawn was examined using immunohistochemical techniques. 2. 2. Collagen was distributed not only in muscle connective tissues, which were classified into three forms, epimysium, perimysium and endomysium, but also in subcuticular membrane, which was mainly composed of two layers, hypodermis and subcuticular connective tissue. 3. 3. The α1(Pr) component existed in all connective tissues in the kuruma prawn muscle. Type AR-II collagen was distributed in all the connective tissues except for the hypodermis, while the α2(Pr) component existed in the thin connective tissues, the perimysium and endomysium, and in the hypodermis.
