Identification of two binding partners for the bacterial actin homolog MreB
A distinguishing characteristic of prokaryotes was long thought to be the lack of a cytoskeleton similar to eukaryotes consisting of actin filaments, microtubules, and intermediate filaments. However, recent work has shown ...
Submerged macrophytes in Big Spring Creek, WI: Distribution and influence on phosphorus dynamics
Submerged macrophytes affect many aspects of lotic ecosystems, including nutrient dynamics. We performed longitudinal vegetation surveys to describe the distribution of macrophytes in Big Spring Creek, Wisconsin. We also ...
Determining the impacts of residential lakeshore development and various physical factors on largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides) growth rates
Development of residential lakeshore properties can have several effects on aquatic ecosystems including the thinning of littoral coarse woody habitat. Previous studies have shown that reduction of littoral coarse woody ...
Transgenic zebrafish that carry inducible zic2a fusion proteins
Zic genes encode proteins that contain zinc fingers used to bind DNA and modify transcription of target genes. Several zic genes have been identified that are critical in regulating nervous system development in a wide ...
Present management practices and future possibilities for the Concha Prieta (Anadara tuberculosa) in the community of San Felipe, Ecuador
San Felipe is a small fishing village on the Caraquez estuary on the coast of Ecuador. Only twenty years ago, this community was able to sustain itself on clam collecting, but due to poor management and mangrove destruction, ...
Starvation responses of invasive and non-invasive Eurytemora affinis populations
