The influence of multiple environmental stressors on the limpet Cellana toreuma during the summer monsoon season in Hong Kong
Although environmental stressors affect natural systems in a multitude of ways, the interactive effect of multiple stressors on ecological assemblages remains largely misunderstudied. On tropical shores which experience ...
Accumulation of Cu and Zn from antifouling paint particles by the marine macroalga, Ulva lactuca.
The marine macroalga, Ulva lactuca, has been exposed to different concentrations of antifouling paint particles (4-200 mg L(-1)) in the presence of a fixed quantity of clean estuarine sediment and its photosynthetic response ...
Benthic foraminifera assemblages in the Central Barents Sea: an evaluation of combining live and total fauna studies in tracking environmental change
We present living (stained) benthic foraminifera assemblage data in nine surface sediment samples from the central Barents Sea collected in 2005 and 2006. The abundances of 20 selected species are compared to these from ...
Aquatic toxicity tests of Ulva pertusa Kjellman (Ulvales, Chlorophyta) using spore germination and gametophyte growth
Aquatic toxicity tests using spore germination and gametophyte growth of the green alga, Ulva pertusa Kjellman, were developed and evaluated by assessing the toxicity of different organic and inorganic chemicals and ...
DNA replication in the human malaria parasite and potential for novel drug development
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2009)
Rather than simply "itemising" the replication steps and the proteins involved, replication is tackled from a novel perspective. The book provides logical groupings of processes based upon biochemical similarities.
Nuclear and membrane expression of the angiogenesis regulator delta-like ligand 4 (DLL4) in normal and malignant human tissues.
AIMS: Delta-like ligand 4 (DLL4) is one of five known Notch ligands in mammals and interacts predominantly with Notch 1. DLL4 is induced by vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and acts downstream of VEGF as a 'brake' ...
Background document for Lophelia pertusa reefs
Novel virus dynamics in an Emiliania huxleyi bloom.
Diel studies of an Emiliania huxleyi bloom within a mesocosm revealed a highly dynamic associated viral community, changing on small times scales of hours.
