Ecophysiological Responses Of Two Closely Related Epigean And Hypogean Niphargus Species To Hypoxia And Increased Temperature: Do They Differ?, Tatjana Simčič, Boris Sket 2021 National Institute of Biology, Slovenia

Ecophysiological Responses Of Two Closely Related Epigean And Hypogean Niphargus Species To Hypoxia And Increased Temperature: Do They Differ?, Tatjana Simčič, Boris Sket

International Journal of Speleology

Ecological performance of animals depends on physiological and biochemical processes that are adjusted to the environment. The responses to hypoxia or anoxia have been frequently studied in subterranean aquatic organisms in order to find potential adaptations to restrict oxygen conditions occurring in the underground habitats. However, some previous studies have compared phylogenetic distant epigean and hypogean species or the epigean and hypogean populations of the same species due to little chance to compare closely related epigean and hypogean species. Therefore, in this study, we compared the effects of exposure to hypoxia, followed by reoxygenation, and increased temperature on oxygen consumption ...


Characterization Of A Myo19 Knockdown Phenotype In A Cultured Neuron-Like Cell Line, Adelaide Masterson, Bridget Wolters 2021 University of Richmond

Characterization Of A Myo19 Knockdown Phenotype In A Cultured Neuron-Like Cell Line, Adelaide Masterson, Bridget Wolters

Arts & Sciences Student Symposium

We will be characterizing and analyzing properties related to neurite outgrowth, including neurite length & mitochondrial dynamics, in order to understand how MYO19 activity and mitochondrial distribution play a role in neurite development. We aim to observe if loss of MYO19 expression alters these properties, and if reintroducing specific aspects of MYO19 function can “rescue” any observed defects in cells where normal MYO19 expression has been lost. Our studies and hypothesis are based on the previous work of Dr. Quintero and his students, where they have observed differences in the behavior of neuron-like CAD cells when MYO19 expression has been altered.


An Analysis Of Extraction Efficiencies Of Various Swabs On Sperm Recovery, Lindsey Campany 2021 Duquesne University

An Analysis Of Extraction Efficiencies Of Various Swabs On Sperm Recovery, Lindsey Campany

Graduate Student Research Symposium

With advancements in the DNA technology and methodology, more complete DNA profiles can be obtained. Extraction procedures and their reagents have been optimized for maximal DNA yield, but the cotton swab used and provided for sexual assault examinations has not advanced. Despite research suggesting the cotton swab’s absorbent nature and its inclination to retain cellular material, the field of forensic nursing has not yet implemented another swab.

Three swabs that this research will be evaluating are nylon flocked swabs, cotton swabs, and the cytobrush swab. The nylon flocked and cotton swabs have been studied for their efficiency, but no ...


Characterization Of Novel Chlorovirus Glycosyltransferases That Synthesize Atypical Glycans, Eric Noel 2021 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Characterization Of Novel Chlorovirus Glycosyltransferases That Synthesize Atypical Glycans, Eric Noel

Dissertations and Theses in Biological Sciences

Giant dsDNA chloroviruses encode a diverse repertoire of glycosyltransferases (GTases) and methyltransferases (MTases) that biosynthesize unusual, methylated sugars independent of their host chlorella-like green algae prompting a reexamination of glycobiology systems. Unlike most other viruses, the prototype chlorovirus PBCV-1 encodes most, if not all, of the machinery required to glycosylate its major capsid protein (MCP). The structures of the four N-linked glycans do not resemble any other glycans in the three domains of life. Here, we investigated the potential involvement of chlorovirus- encoded putative GTases and MTases in glycosylation of the viral MCP. First, we aimed to generate site-directed ...

Vertebrates harbor recognizably orthologous gene complements but vary 100-fold in genome size. How chromosomal organization scales with genome expansion is unclear, and how acute changes in gene regulation, as during axolotl limb regeneration, occur in the context of a vast genome has remained a riddle. Here, we describe the chromosome-scale assembly of the giant, 32 Gb axolotl genome. Hi-C contact data revealed the scaling properties of interphase and mitotic chromosome organization. Analysis of the assembly yielded understanding of the evolution of large, syntenic multigene clusters, including the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) and the functional regulatory landscape of the Fibroblast Growth ...


Determination Of The Traits In Leguminous Crops Under Saline Condition, Tojiddin Kuliev, Karomat Ismailova 2021 Gulistan state University

Determination Of The Traits In Leguminous Crops Under Saline Condition, Tojiddin Kuliev, Karomat Ismailova

Karakalpak Scientific Journal

In this study, the variability and determination of genetic traits for winter legume crop varieties the Vostok-55 (Pisum arvense L) and Mirzachul-1 (Vicia villoza Roth L) were investigated under moderate saline soil condition. Results show that the weight of the bean was marked as variable and highly deterministic, and the height of the plants was the most stable. The selection of plants based on these traits is the most effective way of salinity. Both variety the forage pea Vostok-55 and vetch Mirzachul-1 is highly recommended as a sideration and forage crop in saline lands.
