The coxal muscle receptors in the crab provide a useful preparation for the study of receptor function. The two largest sensory neurones innervating the receptor complex consist of fibres 2-5 mm long and 50 /on in diameter which run straight from the thoracic ganglion, containing their cell bodies, to branch just before reaching the muscle. One, the T(More)
The von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) tumour suppressor gene encodes a substrate-specifying component of an E3 ubiquitin ligase that targets hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) alpha subunits for degradation under normoxia. The VHL protein is composed of an N-terminal HIFalpha-binding beta domain and a C-terminal alpha domain, which is necessary and sufficient for the(More)
When continents break apart, the rifting is sometimes accompanied by the production of large volumes of molten rock. The total melt volume, however, is uncertain, because only part of it has erupted at the surface. Furthermore, the cause of the magmatism is still disputed-specifically, whether or not it is due to increased mantle temperatures. We recorded(More)
The rise in spring temperatures over the past half-century has led to advances in the phenology of many nontropical plants and animals. As species and populations differ in their phenological responses to temperature, an increase in temperatures has the potential to alter timing-dependent species interactions. One species-interaction that may be affected is(More)
