  • Greenberg, Robert M. (2005-10)
    Transient changes in calcium (Ca2+) levels regulate a wide variety of cellular processes, and cells employ both intracellular and extracellular sources of Ca2+ for signaling. Praziquantel, the drug of choice against ...
  • Miyazaki, Kenichi; Ross, William N. (Society for Neuroscience, 2013-11-06)
    1,4,5-Inositol trisphosphate receptors (IP3Rs) and ryanodine receptors (RyRs) mediate release of Ca2+ from internal stores in many neurons. The details of the spatial and temporal characteristics of these signals and their ...
  • Gomez, Maria del Pilar; Nasi, Enrico (Society for Neuroscience, 2005-02-23)
    Calcium is thought to be essential for adaptation of sensory receptor cells. However, the transduction cascade of hyperpolarizing, ciliary photoreceptors of the scallop does not use IP3-mediated Ca release, and the ...
  • Goda, Makoto; Inoue, Shinya; Mabuchi, Issei (Marine Biological Laboratory, 2009-02)
    Calyculin-A (CLA), a protein phosphatase inhibitor, has been known to induce cleavage resembling normal furrowing in unfertilized sea urchin eggs. In CLA-treated eggs, actin filaments and myosin assemble to form a contractile ...
  • Sarkar, Indra Neil; Planet, Paul J.; DeSalle, Rob (2008-04)
    The success of character based DNA barcoding depends on the efficient identification of diagnostic character states from molecular sequences that have been organized hierarchically (e.g., according to phylogenetic methods). ...
  • Armstrong, Margaret T.; Rickles, Frederick R.; Armstrong, Peter B. (Public Library of Science, 2013-11-25)
    In vertebrates and arthropods, blood clotting involves the establishment of a plug of aggregated thrombocytes (the cellular clot) and an extracellular fibrillar clot formed by the polymerization of the structural protein ...
  • Bucior, Iwona; Scheuring, Simon; Engel, Andreas; Burger, Max M. (Rockefeller University Press, 2004-05-17)
    The adhesion force and specificity in the first experimental evidence for cell–cell recognition in the animal kingdom were assigned to marine sponge cell surface proteoglycans. However, the question whether the specificity ...
  • Shaver, Gaius R.; Giblin, Anne E.; Nadelhoffer, Knute J.; Thieler, K. K.; Downs, M. R.; Laundre, J. A.; Rastetter, Edward B. (2006-02-15)
    Soils of tundra and boreal ecosystems contain large organic matter stocks, typically as a layer of peat that blankets the underlying mineral soil. Despite the low productivity of northern vegetation, organic matter accumulates ...
  • Bowling, D. R.; Bethers-Marchetti, S.; Lunch, Claire K.; Grote, E. E.; Belnap, J. (American Geophysical Union, 2010-11-18)
    The net exchanges of carbon dioxide, water vapor, and energy were examined in a perennial Colorado Plateau grassland for 5 years. The study began within a multiyear drought and continued as the drought ended. The grassland ...
  • Lin, Eric I.; Jeyifous, Okunola; Green, William N. (Society for Neuroscience, 2013-07-17)
    SAP97 interacts with AMPA receptors (AMPARs) and NMDA receptors (NMDARs) during sorting and trafficking to synapses. Here we addressed how SAP97 distinguishes between AMPARs and NMDARs and what role the adaptor/scaffold ...
  • Held, Michael; Schmitz, Michael H. A.; Fischer, Bernd; Walter, Thomas; Neumann, Beate; Olma, Michael H.; Peter, Matthias; Ellenberg, Jan; Gerlich, Daniel W. (2010-07)
    Fluorescence time-lapse imaging has become a powerful tool to investigate complex dynamic processes such as cell division or intracellular trafficking. Automated microscopes generate time-resolved imaging data at high ...
  • Yang, Zhenye; Kenny, Alison E.; Brito, Daniela A.; Rieder, Conly L. (Rockefeller University Press, 2009-08)
    To determine why the duration of mitosis (DM) is less in Taxol than in nocodazole or Eg5 inhibitors we studied the relationship between Taxol concentration, the DM, and the mitotic checkpoint. We found that unlike for other ...
  • Glanzman, David L. (Marine Biological Laboratory, 2006-06)
    Until recently, investigations of the neurobiological substrates of simple forms of learning and memory in the marine snail Aplysia have focused mostly on plastic changes that occur within the presynaptic sensory neurons. ...
  • Alliegro, Mark C. (2011-01-03)
    The presence of nucleic acids in centrosomes and the spindle have been proposed, observed, and reported since the 1950s. Why did the subject remain, perhaps even until today, such a controversial issue? The explanation ...
  • Albertin, Caroline B.; Bonnaud, Laure; Brown, C. Titus; Crookes-Goodson, Wendy J.; da Fonseca, Rute R.; Di Cristo, Carlo; Dilkes, Brian P.; Edsinger-Gonzales, Eric; Freeman, Robert J.; Hanlon, Roger T.; Koenig, Kristen M.; Lindgren, Annie R.; Martindale, Mark Q.; Minx, Patrick; Moroz, Leonid L.; Nodl, Marie-Therese; Nyholm, Spencer V.; Ogura, Atsushi; Pungor, Judit R.; Rosenthal, Joshua J. C.; Schwarz, Erich M.; Shigeno, Shuichi; Strugnell, Jan M.; Wollesen, Tim; Zhang, Guojie; Ragsdale, Clifton W. (Genomic Standards Consortium, 2012-09-26)
    The Cephalopod Sequencing Consortium (CephSeq Consortium) was established at a NESCent Catalysis Group Meeting, “Paths to Cephalopod Genomics- Strategies, Choices, Organization,” held in Durham, North Carolina, USA on May ...
  • Valiela, Ivan; Martinetto, Paulina (American Institute of Biological Sciences, 2007-04)
    The abundance of birds recorded in the North American Breeding Bird Survey decreased by up to 18 percent between 1966 and 2005. The abundance of US and Canadian resident species decreased by 30 percent, and that of migrants ...
  • Izumi, Michi; Sweeney, Alison M.; DeMartini, Daniel; Weaver, James C.; Powers, Meghan L.; Tao, Andrea; Silvas, Tania V.; Kramer, Ryan M.; Crookes-Goodson, Wendy J.; Mathger, Lydia M.; Naik, Rajesh R.; Hanlon, Roger T.; Morse, Daniel E. (2009-07-18)
    Many cephalopods exhibit remarkable dermal iridescence, a component of their complex, dynamic camouflage and communication. In the species Euprymna scolopes, the light-organ iridescence is static and is due to reflectin ...
  • Grimm, Nancy B.; Foster, David R.; Groffman, Peter; Grove, J. Morgan; Hopkinson, Charles S.; Nadelhoffer, Knute J.; Pataki, Diane E.; Peters, Debra P. C. (Ecological Society of America, 2008-06)
    Urbanization, an important driver of climate change and pollution, alters both biotic and abiotic ecosystem properties within, surrounding, and even at great distances from urban areas. As a result, research challenges and ...
  • Rach, J.; DeSalle, Rob; Sarkar, Indra Neil; Schierwater, B.; Hadrys, H. (Royal Society, 2007-11-08)
    DNA barcoding has become a promising means for identifying organisms of all life stages. Currently, phenetic approaches and tree-building methods have been used to define species boundaries and discover 'cryptic species'. ...
  • Prabhu, Anjali; Morrison, Hilary G.; Martinez, Charles R.; Adam, Rodney D. (2006-12-04)
    Giardia trophozoites are polyploid and have five chromosomes. The chromosome homologues demonstrate considerable size heterogeneity due to variation in the subtelomeric regions. We used clones from the genome project with ...
