About The Product

Published by way of the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Antarctic learn Series.

Of the volumes presently to be had within the Antarctic study sequence, this quantity is the fourth facing the biology of the antarctic seas. those accrued papers contain the result of unique investigations, eleven of that are involved in most cases with the id and distribution of marine vegetation and animals. within the first of those papers Stewart Springer provides a scientific appraisal of the 5 species of elasmobranch Rajidae from Antarctica, of which one represents a brand new and specific species. Heretofore one of many peculiarities of the antarctic ichthyological fauna has been the absence of sharks. during this very major contribution, the writer establishes the main southerly checklist for any member of the elasmobranchs. the second one paper, by way of Patricia Kott, amplifies our systematic wisdom of the tunicates of the South Atlantic, South Pacific, and Indian oceans. It extends her monograph released as quantity thirteen of the study sequence lower than the name of Antarctic Ascidiacea and relies on collections made within the Antarctic via 1967; new species are incorporated. Additions and corrections to quantity thirteen are appended to this paper. John C. Markham stories on a number of reduce chordates of the genus Cephalodiscus and discusses the systematics and distribution of the 5 species recognized from the Antarctic. The Deep Freeze fabrics tested during this research have been received during the U.S. military Hydrographic workplace oceanographers from icebreakers assigned to job strength forty three sooner than and after the 1955-1959 overseas Geophysical 12 months and precede the nationwide technology beginning subsidized study now being carried out through the USNS Eltanin and the R/V Hero lower than the U.S. Antarctic learn application.

Small GTPases and Their Regulators Part G

Small GTPases play a key function in lots of facets of up to date cellphone biology: regulate of cellphone development and differentiation; rules of telephone adhesion and cellphone circulation; the association of the actin cytoskeleton; and the law of intracellular vesicular delivery. This quantity plus its better half Volumes 255 and 256 disguise all biochemical and organic assays presently in use for studying the function of small GTPases in those features of mobilephone biology on the molecular point.

Sigma Receptors: Chemistry, Cell Biology and Clinical Implications

Sigma receptors are promising drug improvement objectives for a number of neurological, psychiatric, oncological, immunological, cardiovascular, ophthalmological, and gastrointestinal problems. they're structurally distinctive proteins which are detailed from classical G protein-coupled receptors, ionotropic receptors, or receptor tyrosine kinases.
