Interaction of Neurochondrin with the Melanin-concentrating Hormone Receptor 1 Interferes with G Protein-coupled Signal Transduction but Not Agonist-mediated Internalization*
TLDR
Investigation of a human brain cDNA library using the C-terminal tail of the melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 1 (MCHR1) as bait in a yeast two-hybrid assay resulted in the identification of the neurite-outgrowth related factor, neurochondrin, which may be involved in the regulation of MCHR1 signaling and play a role in modulating melan in- vivo functions in vivo.

A critical review of reports of parthenogenesis in scorpions (Arachnida)
TLDR
The criteria for considering a species to be parthenogenetic are reviewed and thelytokous and/or facultative parthenogenesis are accepted for seven taxa and rejected for Ananteris coineaui, Cazierius asper, Hottentotta hottentota, Tityopsis inexpectatus, TITYus stigmurus and Vaejovis spinigerus.

HEAT TOLERANCES OF FOUR SPECIES OF FIRE ANTS (HYMENOPTERA: FORMICIDAE: SOLENOPSIS)
TLDR
Minor workers of the four fire ants species found in Texas were exposed for one hour to upper critical temperatures, predicting that desert-inhabiting fire ants would exhibit higher temperature tolerances than non-desert species. Expand
MYND domain specific interaction of the melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 1 interacting zinc-finger protein with alpha- and beta-tubulin.
TLDR
The results suggest that MIZIP might play an important role in mammalian cells by associating with tubulin and thus might provide a link between MCHR1 and tubulin functions. Expand
The genus Diplocentrus Peters (Scorpiones: Diplocentridae) in Morelos, Mexico.
Sixteen scorpion species are recorded from the state of Morelos, including three species of the genus Diplocentrus Peters: one species had been previously reported, a second one represents a newExpand
MYND domain specific interaction of the melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 1 interacting zinc-finger protein with α- and β-tubulin
TLDR
The results suggest that MIZIP might play an important role in mammalian cells by associating with tubulin and thus might provide a link between MCHR1 and tubulin functions. Expand
Immunohistochemical distribution of MIZIP and its co-expression with the Melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 1 in the adult rodent brain.
TLDR
Data support the notion that MIZIP might interact with MCHR1 in a cell type specific manner in vivo, suggesting a role in the regulation of MCH signalling in distinct regions of the mammalian brain. Expand
A new species of Diplocentrus (Arachnida: Scorpiones) from Michoacan,Mexico
Se describe Diplocentrus churumuco sp. nov., de la Depresion del Balsas en Michoacan, y se dan las diferencias diagnosticas con especies afines del genero. La formula de espinas tarsales esExpand
Scorpions (Arachnida: Scorpiones) from the Cuatro Ciénegas Basin
Twelve species of scorpions, belonging to three families and seven genera, have been recorded from the Cuatro Cienegas Basin (CCB). Two are considered endemic, but this might be due to poor samplingExpand
