SeaBase : a multispecies transcriptomic resource and platform for gene network inference
Marine and aquatic animals are extraordinarily useful as models for identifying mechanisms of development and evolution, regeneration, resistance to cancer, longevity and symbiosis, among many other areas of research. ...
Image analysis for biology
Effects of preservation methods of muscle tissue from upper-trophic level reef fishes on stable isotope values (δ13C and δ15N)
Research that uses stable isotope analysis often involves a delay between sample collection in the field and laboratory processing, therefore requiring preservation to prevent or reduce tissue degradation and associated ...
Actin binding to WH2 domains regulates nuclear import of the multifunctional actin regulator JMY
(American Society for Cell Biology, 2012-01-19)
Junction-mediating and regulatory protein (JMY) is a regulator of both transcription and actin filament assembly. In response to DNA damage, JMY accumulates in the nucleus and promotes p53-dependent apoptosis. JMY's ...
Augmin-dependent microtubule nucleation at microtubule walls in the spindle
(Rockefeller University Press, 2013-07-01)
The formation of a functional spindle requires microtubule (MT) nucleation from within the spindle, which depends on augmin. How augmin contributes to MT formation and organization is not known because augmin-dependent MTs ...
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 ...
Roads as nitrogen deposition hot spots
Mobile sources are the single largest source of nitrogen emissions to the atmosphere in the US. It is likely that a portion of mobile-source emissions are deposited adjacent to roads and thus not measured by traditional ...
Auditory evoked potential audiometry in fish
A recent survey lists more than 100 papers utilizing the auditory evoked potential (AEP) recording technique for studying hearing in fishes. More than 95 % of these AEP-studies were published after Kenyon et al. introduced ...
Intentional versus unintentional nitrogen use in the United States : trends, efficiency and implications
Human actions have both intentionally and unintentionally altered the global economy of nitrogen (N), with both positive and negative consequences for human health and welfare, the environment and climate change. Here we ...
Kinetic framework of spindle assembly checkpoint signaling
The mitotic spindle assembly checkpoint (SAC) delays anaphase onset until all chromosomes have attached to both spindle poles1, 2. Here, we investigated SAC signaling kinetics in response to acute detachment of individual ...
