Micro-level explanations for emergent patterns of self-governance arrangements in small-scale fisheries-A modeling approach.
(PloS one, 2017-01)
Small-scale fisheries (SSFs) in developing countries are expected to play a significant role in poverty alleviation and enhancing food security in the decades to come. To realize this expectation, a better understanding ...
Antagonists of the system L neutral amino acid transporter (LAT) promote endothelial adhesivity of human red blood cells.
(Thrombosis and haemostasis, 2017-06)
The system L neutral amino acid transporter (LAT; LAT1, LAT2, LAT3, or LAT4) has multiple functions in human biology, including the cellular import of S-nitrosothiols (SNOs), biologically active derivatives of nitric oxide ...
Red blood cell phenotype fidelity following glycerol cryopreservation optimized for research purposes.
(PloS one, 2018-01)
Intact red blood cells (RBCs) are required for phenotypic analyses. In order to allow separation (time and location) between subject encounter and sample analysis, we developed a research-specific RBC cryopreservation protocol ...
Parental dietary seleno-L-methionine exposure and resultant offspring developmental toxicity.
(Aquatic toxicology (Amsterdam, Netherlands), 2016-01)
Selenium (Se) leaches into water from agricultural soils and from storage sites for coal fly ash. Se toxicity causes population and community level effects in fishes and birds. We used the laboratory aquarium model fish, ...
Use of biological detection methods to assess dioxin-like compounds in sediments of Bohai Bay, China.
(Ecotoxicology and environmental safety, 2019-05)
Bohai Bay, in the western region of northeastern China's Bohai Sea, receives water from large rivers containing various pollutants including dioxin-like compounds (DLCs). This study used the established zebrafish (Danio ...
Increased coiling frequency linked to apoptosis in the brain and altered thyroid signaling in zebrafish embryos (Danio rerio) exposed to the PBDE metabolite 6-OH-BDE-47.
Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are a group of brominated flame retardants that are ubiquitously detected in the environment and associated with adverse health outcomes. 6-OH-BDE-47 is a metabolite of the flame retardant, ...
The case for thyroid disruption in early life stage exposures to thiram in zebrafish (Danio rerio).
(General and comparative endocrinology, 2019-01)
Thiram, a pesticide in the dithiocarbamate chemical family, is widely used to prevent fungal disease in seeds and crops. Its off-site movement to surface waters occurs and may place aquatic organisms at potential harm. Zebrafish ...
