Discovery of variant infectious salmon anaemia virus (ISAV) of European genotype in British Columbia, Canada.
Charlottetown, Canada. In Virol J, Dec 2015
METHODS: In this study, we tested 1,106 fish tissue samples collected from (i) market-bought farmed salmonids and (ii) wild salmon from throughout British Columbia (BC), Canada, for ISAV using real time RT-qPCR targeting segment 8 and/or conventional RT-PCR with segment 8 primers and segment 6 HPR primers, and by virus isolation attempts using Salmon head kidney (SHK-1 and ASK-2) cell line monolayers.
Chemical mating cues in C. elegans.
Worcester, United States. In Semin Cell Dev Biol, 2014
In general, interactions between core sensory neurons such as ASK and sex-specific neurons like CEM are critical for detecting these small molecules.
Regulation and roles of Cdc7 kinase under replication stress.
Olomouc, Czech Republic. In Cell Cycle, 2013
Cdc7 (cell division cycle 7) kinase together with its activation subunit ASK (also known as Dbf4) play pivotal roles in DNA replication and contribute also to other aspects of DNA metabolism such as DNA repair and recombination.
Ascaroside signaling in C. elegans.
Kiel, Germany. In Wormbook, 2012
The ascarosides are sensed by several types of chemosensory head neurons, including the ASK, ASI, and ADL neurons as well as the male-specific CEM neurons.
