  • Qian, Haohua; Chappell, Richard L.; Redenti, Stephen; Ripps, Harris (Marine Biological Laboratory, 2004-12)
    Bipolar cells in the vertebrate retina are second-order neurons that convey visual information from photoreceptors to ganglion cells, the neurons that relay the message to the brain. Bipolar cells consist typically of ...
  • Mooney, T. Aran; Hanlon, Roger T.; Madsen, Peter T.; Christensen-Dalsgaard, Jakob; Ketten, Darlene R.; Nachtigall, Paul E. (2010-07)
    Hearing is a primary sense in many marine animals and we now have a reasonable understanding of what stimuli generate clear responses, the frequency range of sensitivity, expected threshold values and mecha-nisms of sound ...
  • Rabbitt, Richard D.; Clifford, Sarah; Breneman, Kathryn D.; Farrell, Brenda; Brownell, William E. (Public Library of Science, 2009-07-24)
    Cochlear outer hair cells (OHCs) are fast biological motors that serve to enhance the vibration of the organ of Corti and increase the sensitivity of the inner ear to sound. Exactly how OHCs produce useful mechanical power ...
  • Algar, Christopher K.; Vallino, Joseph J. (Inter-Research, 2014-01-23)
    We present an ecosystem model that describes the biogeochemistry of a sediment nitrate reducing microbial community. In the model, the microbial community is represented as a distributed metabolic network. Biogeochemical ...
  • Estrada, James A.; Rice, Aaron N.; Lutcavage, Molly E.; Skomal, Gregory B. (Cambridge University Press, 2004-01-08)
    Trophic positions (TP) were estimated for the blue shark (Prionace glauca), shortfin mako (Isurus oxyrinchus), thresher shark (Alopias vulpinus), and basking shark (Cetorhinus maximus) using stable isotope ratios of carbon ...
  • Staudinger, Michelle D.; Hanlon, Roger T.; Juanes, Francis (2010-11-19)
    Longfin squid (Loligo pealeii) were exposed to two predators, bluefish (Pomatomus saltatrix) and summer flounder (Paralichthys dentatus), representing cruising and ambush foraging tactics, respectively. During 35 trials, ...
  • Sokolov, Andrei P.; Stone, P. H.; Forest, C. E.; Prinn, Ronald G.; Sarofim, Marcus C.; Webster, M.; Paltsev, S.; Schlosser, C. Adam; Kicklighter, David W.; Dutkiewicz, Stephanie; Reilly, John M.; Wang, C.; Felzer, Benjamin S.; Melillo, Jerry M.; Jacoby, H. D. (American Meteorological Society, 2009-10-01)
    The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Integrated Global System Model is used to make probabilistic projections of climate change from 1861 to 2100. Since the model’s first projections were published in 2003, ...
  • Tsuda, Sachiko; Kee, Michelle Z. L.; Cunha, Catarina; Kim, Jinsook; Yan, Ping; Loew, Leslie M.; Augustine, George J. (2012-12-04)
    Recent advances in our understanding of brain function have come from using light to either control or image neuronal activity. Here we describe an approach that combines both techniques: a micromirror array is used to ...
  • Amaral-Zettler, Linda A.; Peplies, Jorg; Ramette, Alban; Fuchs, Bernhard; Ludwig, Wolfgang; Glockner, Frank Oliver (2008-08-07)
    Thirty years have passed since Carl Woese proposed three primary domains of life based on the phylogenetic analysis of ribosomal RNA genes. Adopted by researchers worldwide, ribosomal RNA has become the “gold-standard” for ...
  • Tank, Suzanne E.; Manizza, Manfredi; Holmes, Robert M.; McClelland, James W.; Peterson, Bruce J. (Springer, 2011-06-11)
    Although the Arctic Ocean is the most riverine-influenced of all of the world’s oceans, the importance of terrigenous nutrients in this environment is poorly understood. This study couples estimates of circumpolar riverine ...
  • Rastetter, Edward B.; Williams, Mathew; Griffin, Kevin L.; Kwiatkowski, Bonnie L.; Tomasky, Gabrielle; Potosnak, Mark J.; Stoy, Paul C.; Shaver, Gaius R.; Stieglitz, Marc; Hobbie, John E.; Kling, George W. (Ecological Society of America, 2010-07)
    Continuous time-series estimates of net ecosystem carbon exchange (NEE) are routinely made using eddy covariance techniques. Identifying and compensating for errors in the NEE time series can be automated using a signal ...
  • Souza-Egipsy, Virginia; Gonzalez-Toril, Elena; Zettler, Erik; Amaral-Zettler, Linda A.; Aguilera, Angeles; Amils, Ricardo (Spanish Society for Microbiology (SEM), 2008-12)
    Four algal photosynthetic biofilms were collected from the Rio Tinto (SW Spain) at four localities: AG, Euglena and Pinnularia biofilms; ANG, Chlorella and Pinnularia biofilms; RI, Cyanidium and Dunaliella biofilms; and ...
  • Gomez, Maria del Pilar; Nasi, Enrico (Rockefeller University Press, 2009-08-31)
    In microvillar photoreceptors, light stimulates the phospholipase C cascade and triggers an elevation of cytosolic Ca2+ that is essential for the regulation of both visual excitation and sensory adaptation. In some organisms, ...
  • Colin, Sean P.; Costello, John H.; Katija, Kakani; Seymour, Jamie; Kiefer, Kristen (Public Library of Science, 2013-02-20)
    Evolutionary constraints which limit the forces produced during bell contractions of medusae affect the overall medusan morphospace such that jet propulsion is limited to only small medusae. Cubomedusae, which often possess ...
  • Sloboda, Roger D.; Howard, Louisa (2009-04-28)
    Post-translational protein modification occurs extensively in eukaryotic flagella. Here we examine protein methylation, a protein modification that has only recently been reported to occur in flagella (Schneider et al. ...
  • Schneider, Mark J.; Ulland, Megan; Sloboda, Roger D. (American Society for Cell Biology, 2008-08-13)
    During intraflagellar transport (IFT), the regulation of motor proteins, the loading and unloading of cargo and the turnover of flagellar proteins all occur at the flagellar tip. To begin an analysis of the protein composition ...
  • Lauwaet, Tineke; Davids, Barbara J.; Torres-Escobar, Ascencion; Birkeland, Shanda R.; Cipriano, Michael J.; Preheim, Sarah P.; Palm, Daniel; Svard, Staffan G.; McArthur, Andrew G.; Gillin, Frances D. (2006-12-06)
    The ability of Giardia lamblia to undergo two distinct differentiations in response to physiologic stimuli is central to its pathogenesis. The giardial cytoskeleton changes drastically during encystation and excystation. ...
  • Mukherjee, Mandira; Brown, Mark T.; McArthur, Andrew G.; Johnson, Patricia J. (American Society for Microbiology, 2006-12)
    Trichomonas vaginalis is a unicellular eukaryote that lacks mitochondria and contains a specialized organelle, the hydrogenosome, involved in carbohydrate metabolism and iron-sulfur cluster assembly. We report the ...

    Trypanosomatids contain an unusual DNA base J (ß-D-glucosylhydroxymethyluracil), which replaces a fraction of thymine in telomeric and other DNA repeats. To determine the function of base J, we have searched for enzymes ...
