Mutations in lamins cause premature aging syndromes in humans, including the Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS) and Atypical Werner Syndrome. It has been shown that HGPS cells in culture undergo age-dependent progressive changes in nuclear architecture. However, it is unknown whether similar changes in nuclear architecture occur during the normal(More)
Emerin and LEM2 are ubiquitous inner nuclear membrane proteins conserved from humans to Caenorhabditis elegans. Loss of human emerin causes Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy (EDMD). To test the roles of emerin and LEM2 in somatic cells, we used null alleles of both genes to generate C. elegans animals that were either hypomorphic (LEM-2-null and(More)
Calcium and glutamate receptor (GluR) agonists affect apple leaf consumption by neonates of the apple pest, the codling moth, Cydia pomonella (L.) Initial apple leaf consumption was advanced by the presence of trans-1-amino-(1S,3R)-cyclopentanedicarboxylic acid (trans-ACPD), but not by calcium chloride or N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA). However, during the 3 h(More)
