Previous work demonstrated that the brains of many reptiles, including the American chameleon Anolis carolinensis (A. carolinensis), are functionally 'split'. Because the left eye in this species projects predominantly to the right hemisphere, and vice versa, inferences about lateralized brain functioning can be made in A. carolinensis by observation of eye(More)
Recent studies have demonstrated that bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) play fundamental roles in female fertility. This is particularly evident in terms of the ovary. One major question that is just beginning to be addressed is the role of BMPs in the non-pregnant uterus. To help fill this gap, we used in situ hybridization to investigate the expression(More)
In Experiment 1, 72 yearling Broad Breasted White Turkey males were induced to molt under either stimulatory (16L:8D) or nonstimulatory (8L:16D) light used concurrently with a short period of feed and water deprivation, and followed by periods of daily feed restriction (50% of full feed). One-fourth of the males wer killed at intervals of 4, 8, 12, and 16(More)
4100 Background: Sorafenib is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor targeting VEGFr, PDGFr, Raf and other pathways. Encouraging response and survival were observed in a phase II trial combining sorafenib with chemotherapy in GE cancer (J Clin Oncol 27:2947;2010). We are studying single agent sorafenib in a phase II trial with the primary endpoint to assess(More)
Shank length measurement of greater than or equal to 60 mm for males and less than 60 mm for females was used to predict sexes in male and female chukar partridges (Alectoris chukar) at 8, 10, 12, 20, 32, and 64 weeks of age. Growth of the shank is nearly complete at 10 weeks of age, whereas growth of body tissue continues to about 20 weeks of age. The best(More)
