dc.description.abstractThe colorful outer mantle of giant clams contains abundance of symbiotic dinoflagellates (zooxanthellae) and iridocytes, and has direct exposure to light. In light, photosynthesizing dinoflagellates produce O<sub>2</sub>, and the host cells in the outer mantle would be confronted with hyperoxia-related oxidative stress. In comparison, the whitish inner mantle contains few symbiotic dinoflagellates and no iridocytes. It is involved in shell formation, and is shaded from light. CuZnSOD is a cytosolic enzyme that scavenges intracellular O<sub>2</sub>"<sup>-</sup>. We had obtained from the outer mantle of the fluted giant clam, <i>Tridacna squamosa</i>, the complete cDNA coding sequence of a host-derived <i>copper zinc superoxide dismutase (CuZnSOD)</i>, which comprised 462 bp and encoded for 154 amino acids with a calculated MW of 15.6 kDa. <i>CuZnSOD</i> was expressed strongly in the outer mantle, ctenidium, hepatopancreas and kidney. The transcript level of <i>CuZnSOD</i> remained unchanged in the outer mantle during light exposure, but the protein abundance of <i>CuZnSOD</i> increased ~3-fold after exposure to light for 6 or 12 h. By contrast, 12 h of light exposure had no significant effects on the gene and protein expression levels of <i>CuZnSOD</i>/CuZnSOD in the inner mantle. Hence, the increased expression of CuZnSOD in the outer mantle of <i>T. squamosa</i> was probably a host's response to ameliorate oxidative stress related to photosynthesis in the symbionts, and not simply due to increased metabolic rate in the host cells. Evidently, the host clam must possess light- or O<sub>2</sub>-responsive anti-oxidative defenses in order to align with the light-dependent photosynthetic activity of its symbionts.en
