Hormones And Their Receptors In Fish Reproduction (Molecular Aspects of Fish & Marine Biology)

Study at the molecular elements of fish copy has advanced rapidly over the last few years. With the provision of wide-ranging molecular instruments, fish researchers have elucidated a number of the molecular mechanisms regulating replica which function within the mind, pituitary and gonad. This study has printed novel editions of reproductive hormones and their receptors, and has shed new mild at the mechanisms in which a lot of those genes will be activated.

Mapping the Future of Biology: Evolving Concepts and Theories

This quantity is the simplest to be had software to check and appraise the several techniques of today’s biology and their conceptual frameworks, serving as a springboard for brand spanking new study on a clarified conceptual foundation. it truly is anticipated to represent a key reference paintings for biologists and philosophers of biology, in addition to for all scientists attracted to realizing what's at stake within the current alterations of organic types and theories.

Evolutionary Developmental Biology of Invertebrates 1: Introduction, Non-Bilateria, Acoelomorpha, Xenoturbellida, Chaetognatha

Egl-1(lf ) and ced-9(gf ) mutations block germ cell death in response to ionizing radiation (Gartner, Milstein, Ahmed, Hodgkin, & Hengartner, 2000); however, as in the tail-spike cell, neither mutation affects normal physiological cell death in the germ line. Other regulators appear to take charge here (Fig. 2). Mutants in pax-2 and egl-38, encoding Pax2/5/8 family transcriptional regulators, have increased rates of germ cell death. Overexpression of these genes reduces germline apoptosis (Park, Jia, Rajakumar, & Chamberlin, 2006).
