Differential gene expression analysis reveals functional roles of cryptic orange-pigmented organ in the colorless head kidney of Antarctic icefishes (2019-04-24)We discovered an orange-pigmented, discrete body several millimeters in size embedded within the anterior end of the colorless head kidney of the hemoglobinless Antarctic icefishes. No macroscopically visible discrete organ ...
In Vivo Interaction Between Health Food Supplements and Chemotherapeutic Agents on DNA Damage and Cell Production (2004)As expected, both Ara-C and MMS treated mice had DNA and cellular damage. SW, FL, Soy and RM10 were found to cause alterations of DNA and/or cellular damage. SW affected to increase genotoxicity of bone marrow while the ...
Taxonomy of the Neotropical Thorny Catfishes (Siluriformes: Doradidae) and Revision of Genus Leptodoras (2002)Cladistic analysis of relationships among Leptodoras and related taxa (Anduzedoras, Doras, Hassar, Hemidoras) using morphological data recovers Leptodoras praelongus (Myers & Weitzman) as the most ancestral species. The ...
(2004)Migratory birds have the ability to select a breeding site from a large number of sites across a large geographic area. Therefore, one might expect that migratory birds would select the site where they would realize the ...
The Phylogenetic Relationships Among Extant Catfishes, With Special Reference to Ictaluridae (Otophysi: Siluriformes) (2002)Cytochrome b suggested cryptic diversity within several species of Noturus. Relationships among members of the subgenus Rabida were resolved and in many cases well supported. Relationships among Schilbeodes were poorly ...
