Studies of the carbohydrate and related metabolism of the cestode, Hymenolepis diminuta
This study was initially undertaken to determine whether the role of phosphorus in the carbohydrate metabolism of tapeworms is similar to or different from the role of this element in the chemical economy of other animals. ...
Effect of fluid shear stress on the growth and metabolism of human aortic smooth muscle cells
Upon disruption of the integrity of the endothelial monolayer, smooth muscle cells (SMC) may be directly exposed to blood flow and their behavior may be modulated by the local hemodynamic environment. Furthermore, modeling ...
THE RIBOSOMAL RNA INTRONS OF CALLIPHORA ERYTHROCEPHALA AND THE CALMODULIN GENE OF DROSOPHILA MELANOGASTER (INSECTS)
The available cloned examples of the intron-28S coding sequence junctions from the rDNA of Calliphora erythrocephala have been sequenced. These introns interrupt the rDNA at the same position as the type 1 intron family ...
THE ORGANIZATION AND SEQUENCE OF THE 5S RIBOSOMAL GENES OF THE DIPTERAN FLY CALLIPHORA ERYTHROCEPHALA AND THE ISOLATION OF GENES SPECIFICALLY TRANSCRIBED DURING OOGENESIS IN THE DIPTERAN FLY CALLIPHORA ERYTHROCEPHALA
The genomic organization and sequence of the 5S RNA genes of the Dipteran fly Calliphora erythrocephala have been determined. The 5S RNA genes consist of a tandem array of 480 base pair (bp) repeating units which are ...
Competition between the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta, and the acanthocephalan, Moniliformis dubius, in the laboratory rat
Since the tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta, and the acanthocephalan, Moniliformis dubius, are thought to obtain all their nutrients by absorption through the body surface, are known to inhabit the same general part of the ...

A density sensing mechanism in the eukaryote Dictyostelium discoideum
I am interested in understanding a mechanism by which multicellular organisms sense number of cells of the same type. The model selected is the conditioned medium factor secreted by Dictyostelium discoideum. In submerged ...
Identification and characterization ofbemused, a Drosophila gene involved in neuronal excitability, gametogenesis and embryonic development
During a screen for novel genes involved in the process of neurotransmission, a gene, bemused, was identified as the result of a transposon insertion at 85D on the third chromosome. Mutation of bem produces flies that are ...
