The function of small intestinal monoacylglycerol lipase (MGL) is unknown. Its expression in this tissue is surprising because one of the primary functions of the small intestine is to convert diet-derived MGs to triacylglycerol (TG), and not to degrade them. To elucidate the function of intestinal MGL, we generated transgenic mice that over-express MGL(More)
One approach to achieve continuous overproduction of lipids in microalgal “cell factories” relies upon depletion or removal of nutrients that act as competing electron sinks (e.g., nitrate and sulfate). However, this strategy can only be effective for bioenergy applications if lipid is synthesized primarily de novo (from CO2 fixation) rather than from the(More)
The monogenean gill parasites of the genus Ancyro-cephalus (Creplin 1839; Ancyrocephalidae, Dactylo-gyridae) are monoxenous parasites of freshwater fish (Ergens 1966; Simkov a et al. 2003; Simkov a, Matejusov a & Cunningham 2006). Adult trema-todes locate mainly on the gills of the host, where they produce eggs that are released into the aquatic(More)

Ethanol mandates and high fuel prices have led to an increase in the number of ethanol plants in the U.S. in recent years. In turn, this has led to an increase in the production of distillers dried grains (DDGs) as a co-product of ethanol production. DDG production in 2006 is estimated to be near 11 million tons. A sharp increase in ethanol production and(More)
The unusual yellow-finned morph of European perch Perca fluviatilis found in Lake Constance suffers more severely from macroparasite infections, including the tapeworm Triaenophorus nodulosus and the gill worm Ancyrocephalus percae, than conspecifics elsewhere. Microsatellite analysis of yellow-finned P. fluviatilis and red-finned variant recently(More)
