The genome sequence of the Antarctic bullhead notothen reveals evolutionary adaptations to a cold environment
BackgroundAntarctic fish have adapted to the freezing waters of the Southern Ocean. Representative adaptations to this harsh environment include a constitutive heat shock response and the evolutionExpand

Ecdysteroid-responsive genes, RXR and E75, in the tropical land crab, Gecarcinus lateralis: Differential tissue expression of multiple RXR isoforms generated at three alternative splicing sites in
In order to study the potential role of the steroid molting hormone (20-hydroxyecdysone) in regulating molt-induced claw muscle atrophy, full-length cDNAs encoding retinoid-X receptor (Gl-RXR) andExpand

Effects of elevated ecdysteroid on tissue expression of three guanylyl cyclases in the tropical land crab Gecarcinus lateralis: possible roles of neuropeptide signaling in the molting gland
SUMMARY Two eyestalk (ES) neuropeptides, molt-inhibiting hormone (MIH) and crustacean hyperglycemic hormone (CHH), increase intracellular cGMP levels in target tissues. Both MIH and CHH inhibitExpand

A transcriptomic analysis of the response of the arctic pteropod Limacina helicina to carbon dioxide-driven seawater acidification
Ocean acidification from the uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) is regarded as a critical threat particularly to marine calcifying organisms. The arctic pteropod Limacina helicina may beExpand

Proteomic and transcriptomic investigations on cold‐responsive properties of the psychrophilic Antarctic bacterium Psychrobacter sp. PAMC 21119 at subzero temperatures
Psychrobacter sp. PAMC 21119, isolated from Antarctic permafrost soil, grows and proliferates at subzero temperatures. However, its major mechanism of cold adaptation regulation remains poorlyExpand

Hetero- and autoprocessing of the extracellular metalloprotease (Mpr) in Bacillus subtilis.
Most proteases are synthesized as inactive precursors which are processed by proteolytic cleavage into a mature active form, allowing regulation of their proteolytic activity. The activation of theExpand
