Over the last decade rapid progress has been made in the study of ethanol-related traits including alcohol abuse and dependence, and behavioral responses to ethanol in both humans and animal models. To collect, curate, integrate these results so as to make them easily accessible and interpretable for researchers, we developed ERGR, a comprehensive(More)
The sponge Pseudaxinyssa sp., unique in sterol and fatty acid composition, was cellularly dissected into fractions enriched in each of the major cell types present in the sponge: microbial symbionts (cyanobacteria), small sponge cells (pinacocytes and choanocytes), and large sponge cells (archeocytes and cyanophytes). Three phototrophic microbial symbionts(More)
The cells of the sponge Tethya aurantia var. californiana were separated on a Ficoll density gradient and the fractions analyzed for cell types and their lipids. Major cell types were choanocyte, archeocyte, and symbiont. Major differences in archeocyte and choanocyte fatty acid composition were noted for 20:4, 26:1 and 26:2. The fatty acids 26:1, 26:2, and(More)
