The Extract of Rhodobacter sphaeroides Inhibits Melanogenesis through the MEK/ERK Signaling Pathway
Lycogen is established as a new target in melanogenesis and a mechanism of action through the ERK signaling pathway is suggested, suggested that Lycogen may have potential cosmetic usage in the future.
An Intermediate in the evolution of superfast sonic muscles
The pearl perch, an advanced perciform teleost unrelated to ophidiiform fishes, uses a slow type mechanism to produce the major portion of the sound pulse during recoil, but the swimbladder is stretched by a fast muscle.
