Characterization of the developmental stage at which the eye develops a mature circadian rhythm
Real time PCR is used to quantitatively measure the amount of RNA corresponding to our clock and output (clock-controlled) genes present at various times of the day. These amounts tell us the level of expression of specific ...
Initial characterization of when a functional circadian system is present in the eye of Xenopus laevis
Almost all organisms present in nature exhibit a circadian rhythm, a 24 hour cycle in which the organism undergoes both physiological and behavioral changes based on the time of day. The circadian control of physiological ...
Genetic analysis of a nuclear receptor gene and a cytochrome P450 gene in Caenorhabditis elegans and their effect on dauer recovery
This study develops a better understanding of the genetic basis of dauer recovery and could be potentially applicable to understanding the ways in which parasitic nematodes respond to the environment of a host during ...
Characterization of circadian gene expression in Xenopus laevis
Examines when circadian gene expression is first observed in developing Xenopus laevis eyes.
Identification of orthologs of Caenorhabditis elegans dauer formation genes in the parasitic nematode Brugia malayi
A study that looks at gene expression in the nematode Brugia malayi.
The role of cytochrome P450 enzymes in caenorhabditis elegans dauer recovery
The purpose of this experiment is to determine if cytochromeP450 (cyp450) enzymes play a role in dauerrecovery of Caenorhabditiselegans.The life cycle of this free-living nematode is divided into several larval stages. ...
