  1. Greenwood P, Garry K, Hunter A, Jennings M. Adaptable defense: a nudibranch mucus inhibits nematocyst discharge and changes with prey type. Biol Bull. 2004;206:113-20 pubmed
    ..Because of the intimate association between most aeolid nudibranchs and their prey, an adaptable mucus protection could have a significant impact on the behavior, distribution, and life history of the nudibranchs. ..
  2. Wadugu B, Ng C, Bartley B, Rowe R, Millard J. DNA interstrand cross-linking activity of (1-Chloroethenyl)oxirane, a metabolite of beta-chloroprene. Chem Res Toxicol. 2010;23:235-9 pubmed publisher
    ..Furthermore, we found that cytotoxicity correlates with cross-linking efficiency, supporting a role for interstrand cross-links in the genotoxicology of chloroprene. ..
  3. Cheruiyot A, Lee J, Gao F, Ahmad S. Expression of mutant CHMP2B, an ESCRT-III component involved in frontotemporal dementia, causes eye deformities due to Notch misregulation in Drosophila. FASEB J. 2014;28:667-75 pubmed publisher
    ..These results demonstrate that CHMP2B(Intron5) preferentially affects different receptor signaling pathways in a cellular and developmental context-dependent manner...
  4. Greenwood P. Acquisition and use of nematocysts by cnidarian predators. Toxicon. 2009;54:1065-70 pubmed publisher
    ..address two of the fundamental questions of nematocyst acquisition and use by cnidarian predators: (1) how are cnidarian predators protected from nematocyst discharge during feeding; and (2) how are the nematocysts used by the predator? ..
  5. Dziedzic K, Heaphy J, Prescott H, KAVALER J. The transcription factor D-Pax2 regulates crystallin production during eye development in Drosophila melanogaster. Dev Dyn. 2009;238:2530-9 pubmed publisher
    ..The data indicate that D-Pax2 acts to promote lens development by controlling the production of the major protein component of the lens. Whether this control is direct or indirect remains unresolved. ..
  6. Yeterian E, Pandya D. Fiber pathways and cortical connections of preoccipital areas in rhesus monkeys. J Comp Neurol. 2010;518:3725-51 pubmed publisher
    ..Finally, preoccipital regions are interconnected via different intrinsic pathways. These findings provide further insight into the nature of preoccipital fiber pathways and the connectional organization of the visual system. ..
  7. St Laurent R, O Brien L, Ahmad S. Sodium butyrate improves locomotor impairment and early mortality in a rotenone-induced Drosophila model of Parkinson's disease. Neuroscience. 2013;246:382-90 pubmed publisher
    ..These findings demonstrate that HDAC inhibitors like SB can ameliorate locomotor impairment in a rotenone-induced PD model. ..
  8. Taylor S, Wang T, Granados Fuentes D, Herzog E. Resynchronization Dynamics Reveal that the Ventral Entrains the Dorsal Suprachiasmatic Nucleus. J Biol Rhythms. 2017;32:35-47 pubmed publisher
    ..Taken together, these results provide direct evidence that the ventral SCN entrains the dorsal SCN in constant conditions. ..
