Effects of Seismic Air Guns on Pallid Sturgeon and Paddlefish.
College Park, United States. In Adv Exp Med Biol, Dec 2015
Pallid sturgeon and paddlefish were placed at different distances from a seismic air gun array to determine the potential effects on mortality and nonauditory body tissues from the sound from a single shot.
A Genome-wide Scan for Selective Sweeps in Racing Horses.
Seoul, South Korea. In Asian-australas J Anim Sci, Nov 2015
Neighboring genes around RALGAP2 included insulinoma-associated 1 (INSM1), pallid (PLDN), and Ras and Rab interactor 2 (RIN2) genes have similar roles in signal trafficking, suggesting that a co-evolving gene cluster located on the chromosome 22 is under strong artificial selection in racehorses.
Physiological factors that regulate skin pigmentation.
Nagoya, Japan. In Biofactors, 2009
Enzymatic components of melanosomes include tyrosinase, tyrosinase-related protein 1, and dopachrome tautomerase, which depend on the functions of OA1, P, MATP, ATP7A, and BLOC-1 to synthesize eumelanins and pheomelanins.
