Phylogenetic relationships amongst Chloromyxum Mingazzini, 1890 (Myxozoa: Myxosporea), and the description of six novel species from Australian elasmobranchs.
Six novel species of Chloromyxum Mingazzini, 1890 are described using a whole evidence approach combining morphometric and molecular data, together with features of their biology, to provide further support for the erection of new genera. Expand
First taxonomic description of multivalvulidan myxosporean parasites from elasmobranchs: Kudoa hemiscylli n.sp. and Kudoa carcharhini n.sp. (Myxosporea: Multivalvulidae)
The first 2 multivalvulidan species to be formally described from elasmobranchs, Kudoa hemiscylli n.sp. Expand
Androgen receptor immunoreactivity is present in primary sensory neurons of male rats
This study shows that testosterone is likely to influence many sensory neurons and may therefore play an important role in modulating visceral and somatic reflexes. Expand
Maturational and maintenance effects of testosterone on terminal axon density and neuropeptide expression in the rat vas deferens
This study shows that the action of testosterone (or a metabolite) on a pelvic ganglion cell soma is likely to reflect a change in its terminal field, but that these effects are not mediated simply by testosterone influencing the size of its target organ. Expand
Morphological and genetic analysis of three new species of Ceratomyxa Thélohan, 1892 (Myxozoa: Myxosporea) from carcharhinid sharks off Australia
Maximum parsimony and Bayesian inference analyses of the SSU rDNA dataset revealed that ceratomyxids from elasmobranchs form a sister clade to that of species infecting marine teleosts and Palliatus indecorus Schulman, Kovaleva & Dubina, 1979, and show that Ceratomyxa, as currently recognised, is polyphyletic.
