Towards the Development of Transgenic Reporter Lines for Assessing and Characterizing a LAC-Regulated UAS-GAL4 System
I designed and prepared the components of an inducible gene expression system based on the mouse lac system to address limitations in conventional Drosophila melanogaster inducible gene expression systems that preclude ...
Physiological and Behavioural Responses of Largemouth Bass Yearlings (Micropterus salmoides) to Hypoxia at Summer and Winter Temperatures
The main objective of this thesis was to determine the metabolic and behavioural outcomes from hypoxia exposure to largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides) yearlings when acclimated to either winter (5°C) or summer (20°C) ...
Identification of components in crude oil that are chronically toxic to the early life stages of fish
The risk of crude oil exposure to the early life stages (ELS) of fish is difficult to assess, given the complexity of the chemical composition of different oils. The aromatic portion of crude oil contains polycyclic aromatic ...
The Effect Manipulating AMPK Activity has on Ouabain-Induced Spreading Depression in Fed and Starved Locusta Migratoria.
Neurons, though highly metabolically active, have a poor capacity for nutrient storage and are sensitive to energy fluctuations. One mechanism for maintaining energetic homeostasis involves activation of the heterotrimeric ...
No Evidence of Sampling Bias in a Comparison of Two Common Avian Capture Methods
A common assumption underlying many biological studies is that the data we collect from a subset of individuals are representative of the broad population of interest. However, in studies of free-ranging animals, different ...
Molecular Identification and Messenger RNA Levels of a Monocarboxylate Transporter (MCT) in Fundulus Heteroclitus, a Hypoxia Tolerant Teleost Fish
Monocarboxylate transporters (MCTs) are bi-directional symporters that couple proton movement to a variety of glycolytic metabolites, including lactate and pyruvate. As such, MCTs not only play a crucial role in pH ...
