Alternative splicing Body weight sensing Mechanotransduction Muscle plasticity Scaling Tensegrity The design of most animal locomotor systems appears to be constrained mainly by body weight and associated considerations of durability. The effect of gravity, the one truly constant environmental...

... (short, medium and long) were identified for the first time that are generated by alternative splicing of downstream coding and non-coding exons. Our work provides the first complete characterisation of the visual pigments of a parrot, perhaps the most colourful order of birds, and moreover suggests more...

...-bearing muscles receive mechanical feedback regarding body weight and consume ATP in order to generate forces sufficient to counteract gravity. Using rats, we examined how variation in body weight affected alternative splicing of fast skeletal muscle troponin T ( Tnnt3 ), a component of the thin filament...
