Exciting new techniques in molecular cytogenetics--namely, spectral karyotyping, multiplex fluorescence in situ hybridization (M-FISH), and cross species color banding--have been recently developed. An increasing number of reports demonstrate the success of these procedures in providing additional cytogenetic information--identifying marker chromosomes and(More)
Phenotypic variability within cohorts of juvenile organisms can serve as the basis for selective mortality. Previous studies have demonstrated the important role that predators play in this process but not the impact of competitors on selective predation. We use a combination of lab and field studies to evaluate the effect of the presence of adult(More)
If the primary goal of artificial reef construction is the creation of additional reef habitat that is comparable to adjacent natural rocky-reef, then performance should be evaluated using simultaneous comparisons with adjacent natural habitats. Using baited remote underwater video (BRUV) fish assemblages on purpose-built estuarine artificial reefs and(More)
A series of N6,2-disubstituted adenosine analogues have been synthesized and their functional activity measured against A2a and A1 receptors. Examples of compounds with both a lipophilic N6-substituent and amino-functionalized 2-position were highly active at the A2a receptor on the human neutrophil.
Systematic modification of the presumed P1 side chain in a series of (carboxyalkyl)amino-based inhibitors of matrix metalloproteinases enabled identification of the 2-(1,3-dihydro-1,3-dioxo-2H-benz[f]isoindol-2-yl)ethyl group as a preferred substituent imparting potent inhibition of the enzymes collagenase and gelatinase. It was subsequently found that the(More)
