Isolation and Characterization of Regulatory Peptides from Two Tetraploid Species, the Pallid Sturgeon, Scaphirhynchus albus, and the African Clawed Frog, Xenopus laevis
(Creighton University, 2001-07)
Tetraploidization, the duplication of the entire genome of an organism, results in twice the number of each gene present in the original diploid genome. Over time, the multiple copies of a single gene may accumulate different ...
Physiological, Biochemical, and Molecular Biological Effects of +4⁰C Acclimation on the Antarctic Teleost Trematomus bernacchii
(Creighton University, 2005)
The Antarctic teleost Trematomus bemacchii lives in the waters surrounding Antarctica which are a constant -1.8°C. As an adaptive property they possess a uniquely high serum osmolality of -600 mOsm kg"1 which is nearly ...
The Structural and Physiological Effects of -1.5°C, +4°C and +1°C Acclimation on the Antarctic Teleost Trematomus bernacchii
(Creighton University, 2007-12)
The Antarctic teleost Trematomus bernacchii lives in a saltwater environment with an average temperature of -1.8°C. These fish possess several unique adaptations including a serum osmolality that is nearly double that of ...
Effect of Blood Volume Manipulations and Warm Acclimation on Cortisol Levels in the Antarctic Teleost Trematomus bernacchii
(Creighton University, 2007)
Antarctic fish, such as the Trematomus bemacchii, maintain a serum osmolality of around 600 mOsm, nearly twice that of temperate fish. This high serum osmolality seawater surrounding Antarctica. Upon warm acclimation ...
