The rel family of proteins can be defined as a group of proteins that share sequence homology over a 300 amino acid region termed the rel domain. The rel family comprises important regulatory proteins from a wide variety of species and includes the Drosophila morphogen dorsal, the mammalian transcription factor NF-kappa B, the avian oncogene v-rel, and the(More)
Detritivores by nature, earthworms feed on multiple sources of organic matter. We hypothesized that they exhibit selective foraging habits, which would be reflected in their isotopic composition. We sampled at FASET and Ameriflux at the University of Michigan Biological Station, where we obtained earthworm specimens by using an electro shocking technique.(More)
Experiments are described that extend the characterization of position effect variants of the rosy locus and test possible mechanisms of heterochromatic position effect.-Rosy position effect variants exhibit a variegated phenotype with respect to xanthine dehydrogenase activity in malpighian tubules.-The breakpoints of the position effect mutations are(More)
