The larval Drosophila neuromuscular junction (NMJ) has proven to be an excellent system to test fundamental aspects of synaptic transmission, such as relationships among ion channel function, subtypes of glutamate receptors, and the functions of synaptic proteins in the presynaptic compartment. Recent advances in understanding bi-directional communication(More)
Melatonin affects a variety of circadian processes such as behavior and neurotransmitter release in vertebrates. Crayfish melatonin production occurs in the eyestalks, and the cycle of production may change seasonally. To date, however, melatonin's roles and mechanisms of action in crustacean physiology are unclear. We injected melatonin or saline into(More)

In this study, a total of eleven under-reinforced beams, ten of which strengthened with FRP of different widths and different numbers of layers, are fitted with electronic strain gauges on the top concrete fiber, the reinforcing steel and the FRP material. Strains and deflection at mid-span were recorded for each load increment. The data was reported and(More)
