Mummichog gill and operculum exhibit functionally consistent claudin-10 paralog profiles and Claudin-10c hypersaline response
Summary: The role of claudin-10 tight junction proteins in paracellular salt secretion across fish branchial epithelia is indicated by organ-specific responses to hyperosmotic conditions and their association with salt secreting transcellular proteins
Summary: Application of high hydrostatic pressure on somatic cells induce changes in gene expression including upregulation in pluripotency genes.
Summary: We describe a surveillance technique enabling the detection of known and previously uncharacterized pathogens present in mosquitoes. This approach could reduce the costs of vector-borne disease monitoring and provide early warning of emerging diseases.
The dorsal blastopore lip is a source of signals inducing planar cell polarity in the Xenopus neural plate
Summary: The blastopore lip contains a cue that induces the progressive establishment of planar polarity in the neural plate in the posterior to anterior direction.
Summary: The late endosomal regulator Rab7 is required for gastrulation movements and axis elongation in Xenopus by regulating early mesoderm patterning.
Morphological mechanism allowing a parasitic leech, Ozobranchus jantseanus (Rhynchobdellida: Ozobranchidae), to survive in ultra-low temperatures
Summary: The freeze tolerance mechanism of Ozobranchus jantseanus, the largest metazoan animal requiring no pretreatment that can survive in ultra-low temperature, was first studied from the perspective of morphology.
