Catecholaminergic connectivity to the inner ear, central auditory, and vocal motor circuitry in the plainfin midshipman fish porichthys notatus
Although the neuroanatomical distribution of catecholaminergic (CA) neurons has been well documented across all vertebrate classes, few studies have examined CA connectivity to physiologically and anatomically identified ...
pH dependent isotropic to nematic phase transitions in graphene oxide dispersions reveal droplet liquid crystalline phases
Size fractionation, amplified by the surface charge density of graphene oxide (GO) sheets, broadens the pH dependent isotropic (I) to nematic (N) phase transition in aqueous dispersions of graphene oxide (GO). In this ...
RCC1-dependent activation of Ran accelerates cell cycle and DNA repair, inhibiting DNA damage–induced cell senescence
(American Society for Cell Biology, 2016-02-10)
The coordination of cell cycle progression with the repair of DNA damage supports the genomic integrity of dividing cells. The function of many factors involved in DNA damage response (DDR) and the cell cycle depends on ...

Endoplasmic reticulum targeted GFP reveals ER organization in tobacco NT-1 cells during cell division
The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) of plant cells undergoes a drastic reorganization during cell division. In tobacco NT-1 cells that stably express a GFP construct targeted to the ER, we have mapped the reorganization of ...
Living cells and dynamic molecules observed with the polarized light microscope : the legacy of Shinya Inoué
(Marine Biological Laboratory, 2016-08)
In 1948, Shinya Inoué arrived in the United States for graduate studies at Princeton. A year later he came to Woods Hole, starting a long tradition of summer research at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), which quickly ...
The cellular mechanisms of learning in Aplysia : of blind men and elephants
(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. ...
Effects of temperature and diet on the growth rate of year 0 oyster toadfish, Opsanus tau
(Marine Biological Laboratory, 2006-02)
The effects of temperature and diet on the growth of captive year 0 specimens of Opansus tau were examined for two consecutive year classes. The 2001 year class was raised at about 23, 26, or 29°C and provided with live ...
Farm management, not soil microbial diversity, controls nutrient loss from smallholder tropical agriculture
(Frontiers Media, 2015-03-04)
Tropical smallholder agriculture is undergoing rapid transformation in nutrient cycling pathways as international development efforts strongly promote greater use of mineral fertilizers to increase crop yields. These changes ...
Long-term forest soil warming alters microbial communities in temperate forest soils
(Frontiers Media, 2015-02-13)
Soil microbes are major drivers of soil carbon cycling, yet we lack an understanding of how climate warming will affect microbial communities. Three ongoing field studies at the Harvard Forest Long-term Ecological Research ...
