In vivo binding of active heat shock transcription factor 1 to human chromosome 9 heterochromatin during stress
Activation of the mammalian heat shock transcription factor (HSF)1 by stress is a multistep process resulting in the transcription of heat shock genes. Coincident with these events is the rapid andExpand

Preventing the pollution of mitochondrial datasets with nuclear mitochondrial paralogs (numts).
Molecular tools have become prominent in ecology and evolution. A target of choice for molecular ecologists and evolutionists is mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), whose many advantages have also convincedExpand

Higher concentrations of histone macroH2A in the Barr body are correlated with higher nucleosome density
Histone macroH2A, which is a subtype of histone H2A, possesses a histone H2A-like portion fused to a relatively long non-histone portion. MacroH2A has been shown to associate preferentially with theExpand

Heterozygosity–fitness correlations among wild populations of European tree frog (Hyla arborea) detect fixation load
Quantifying the impacts of inbreeding and genetic drift on fitness traits in fragmented populations is becoming a major goal in conservation biology. Such impacts occur at different levels andExpand

Alternative exon 3 splicing of the human major protein zero gene in white blood cells and peripheral nerve tissue
The major protein zero (MPZ) is involved in peripheral myelin folding. Using nested reverse transcription‐PCR, we amplified several fragments of MPZ mRNAs in white blood cells and in peripheral nerveExpand

Invasiveness of an introduced species: the role of hybridization and ecological constraints
Introduced species are confronted with new environments to which they need to adapt. However, the ecological success of an introduced species is generally difficult to predict, especially whenExpand

Unravelling phylogenetic relationships among regionally co-existing species: Hydropsyche species (Trichoptera: Hydropsychidae) in the Loire River
Taxonomy is undoubtedly complementary to other fields in biology such as ecology, and both ecologists and taxonomists increasingly acknowledge that they can profit from phylogenetic ecology orExpand

First cellular approach of the effects of global warming on groundwater organisms: a study of the HSP70 gene expression
Whereas the consequences of global warming at population or community levels are well documented, studies at the cellular level are still scarce. The study of the physiological or metabolic effectsExpand

Phylogeny, age structure, growth dynamics and colour pattern of the Salamandra algira algira population in the Edough Massif, northeastern Algeria
The distribution of the Fire Salamander in North Africa is discontinuous and the Edough Peninsula, Algeria, is considered as the eastern edge of the distribution area. In the current study, weExpand

Characterization and PCR multiplexing of 14 new polymorphic microsatellite loci for the invasive subantarctic carabid Merizodus soledadinus (Coleoptera: Carabidae)
Seventeen novel microsatellite markers were characterized from an enriched DNA library for the invasive carabid beetle Merizodus soledadinus. Loci were tested, as parts of two multiplex sets in 48 M.Expand
