Ca2+ oscillations regulate secretion of the hormone alpha-melanphore-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) by the neuroendocrine pituitary melanotrope cells of the amphibian Xenopus laevis. These Ca2+ oscillations are built up by discrete increments in the intracellular Ca2+ concentration, the Ca2+ steps, which are generated by electrical membrane bursting firing(More)
Shed dinosaur teeth are commonly collected microvertebrate remains that have been used for interpretations of dinosaur feeding behaviors, paleoecology, and population studies. However, such interpretations may be biased by taphonomic processes such as fluvial sorting influenced by tooth shape: shed teeth, removed from the skull during life, and teeth(More)
