The yolk syncytial layer (YSL) in the zebrafish embryo is a multinucleated syncytium essential for embryo development, but the molecular mechanisms underlying YSL formation remain largely unknown. Here we show that zebrafish solute carrier family 3 member 2 (Slc3a2) is expressed specifically in the YSL and that slc3a2 knockdown causes severe YSL defects(More)
We have shown previously that expression of 46 and 54 kDa human myometrial G alpha s protein isoforms is increased during gestation and then subsequently decreased during labour. These proteins appear to be coded for by G alpha s-Small (with a serine residue at position 72) and G alpha s-Large (with a serine residue at position 87) mRNA splice variants(More)

BACKGROUND An estimated one third of energy is consumed in the workplace. The workplace is therefore an important context in which to reduce energy consumption to tackle the high rates of overweight and obesity in the general population. Altering environmental cues for food selection and consumption-physical micro-environment or 'choice architecture'(More)
Granulosa cells are essential for follicular development and corpus luteum formation and their functions are regulated by gonadotrophins through G protein-coupled receptors. The dominant second messenger pathway involves the stimulation of cyclic AMP formation by G alpha s-linked receptors. In this paper we have investigated the expression of G alpha s mRNA(More)
