Download Animals and Temperature: Phenotypic and Evolutionary by Ian A. Johnston, Albert F. Bennett PDF

By Ian A. Johnston, Albert F. Bennett

Organisms are always challenged to control and keep useful capacities as their thermal surroundings alterations. Adjustment to temperature swap is clear either phenotypically in person organisms and genotypically within the evolution of species. This quantity addresses thermal model through bringing jointly some of the prime researchers in thermal biology, with backgrounds spanning the disciplines of molecular biology, cellphone biology, body structure, zoology, ecology and evolutionary biology. The responses of many species to temperature are mentioned intensive, during the molecular, mobile, organismal, inhabitants, and atmosphere degrees. this article stands as a big contribution to the research of temperature edition.

Sample text

Recently, we have found that a polyclonal antibody raised against purified rat SCD1 by Strittmatter's group (Thiede & Strittmatter, 1985) reacts against a carp liver microsomal protein with a molecular mass of approximately 33 kDa, which corresponds closely to the predicted molecular weight based on the coding sequence (Macartney et aL, 1996; Tiku et aL, 1996). In early experiments with carp hepatocytes, the increase in specific activity of the Zl9-desaturase during isothermal culture of carp hepatocytes was matched by an increase in immunodetectable desaturase protein, which suggests that the induction of specific activity was linked to changes in turnover of the protein, rather than to some late post-translational processing of protein already present in the membrane.
