|The Identification and Localization of the Abelson Oncoprotein in Zebrafish, (Danio rerio)
||The ubiquitously expressed Abelson oncoprotein (Abl) has multiple molecular functions, which affect homeostasis and cytoskeletal structuring of the cell. Mutation of the Abl gene is the causal event in several types of leukemia and is linked to the p...
|Differential Expression of Rh Glycoproteins in the Sea Lamprey, (Petromyzon marinus)
||Ammonia is a by-product of protein metabolism. It is a nitrogenous waste that if not excreted, its accumulation is toxic. The exact mechanism by which ammonia is excreted has been a point of controversy for many years. Rh glycoproteins have been rece...
|Identification and Localization of H+-ATPase, NHE2 and NHE3 in the gills of the southern Appalachian brook trout, Salvelinus fontinalis
||Southern brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) native to the Great Smoky Mountains are found in headwater streams. These habitats experience increased instances of stream acidification, lowering stream pH on average ~1.0 pH unit. It is well documented ...
|Ammonia excretion in the Atlantic hagfish, (Myxine glutinosa)
||The hagfishes possess the longest known evolutionary history of the extant craniates and likely offer exclusive insight into vertebrate origins. The Atlantic hagfish is physiologically adapted to spend much of its life burrowed in ocean-floor substr...
|The Effect of Episodic Stream Acidification on the Southern Appalachian Brook Trout (Salvelinus Fontinalis)
||The Southern Appalachian Brook Trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) are currently undergoing declines in their native ranges; major causes of these declines are episodic stream acidification events. The habitats in which these animals live can regularly ex...
|Utilization of Transmission Electron Microscopy to Visulize Skeletal Muscle Damage Following Injurous Downhill Running in Mice
||This study is the first to utilize electron microscopy to quantify skeletal muscle damage in mice following injurious downhill running. Downhill running naturally implements damaging eccentric contractions in the triceps muscles in mice. Skeletal mus...
