Chemical nociception in Wild-type and dYPEL3 Drosophila larva mutants
Drosophila larval nociception is widely used for studying various basic circuit mechanisms. Traditionally, the behavioral assay for Drosophila nociception relied on either optogenetic or physical stimulation. The behavioral ...
Developing Automated Procedure to Quantify Mouse Behavior
Animals have evolved many different behavioral responses to cope with sensory information. Understanding how sensory information can affect animal behavior will provide new insights into the quantification of animal behavior. ...
Phosphorylation of Orb2 by Wnd
Wallenda (Wnd) is an evolutionarily conserved protein kinase that is essential for neural development including axon branch development, axon regeneration and degeneration. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying Wnd ...
Indirect interactions in agricultural milkweed habitat: the effects of root damage on monarch (Danaus plexippus) success
Monarch butterfly populations are declining independently on both sides of the Rockies, but little research to date has investigated the causes of this decline in the West. Monarch caterpillars sequester some defensive ...
Approaches to improving wheat quality by targeting local induced lesions in genomes
As a staple in many popular foods, wheat plays an important role in many different cultures' cuisines and dishes. Therefore, it is important to be aware what the potential effects local wheat synthesis can have on local ...
Genotyping of CRISPR-Edited Mice and Axonal Localization Patterns of Calmodulin 1 3’UTR Isoforms
Calmodulin (CaM) is a key calcium-signal transducer in multiple cell types and is known to influence neuron differentiation, development, and maturation. Calmodulin 1 (Calm1) is one of many genes that encode for the CaM ...
SLIT-2 conditional knock-out in parvalbumin-expressing interneurons lead to anxiety deficits
Parvalbumin-expressing (PV) interneurons innervate a large amount of neighboring pyramidal neurons and establish perisomatic inhibition of pyramidal neurons. The lack of perisomatic inhibition is one of the factors for ...
Determining monarch (Danaus plexippus) natal site distribution in Nevada using stable isotope analysis and wing morphometrics
West of the Rockies, monarch butterfly (Danus plexippus) populations have been significantly declining over the last 30 years. Although the Eastern monarchs have also shown a similar decline, the two populations are ...
Supplements of chicken essence increase sleep in fruit flies
Sleep is a conserved behavior and has vital functions among animal species. Many drugs or natural ingredients have been used to amount of sleep or improve sleep quality. Brand's Essence of Chicken® (BEC) has been used for ...
