Use of RNAi in Brachionus manjavacas to Inhibit Cold-Related Genes Implicated in Aging
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-08-18)
Aging can be affected by a number of factors, including temperature; for example, organisms tend to live significantly longer when exposed to colder temperatures. Previous studies suggest that this change in life expectancy ...
A mannose receptor-like molecule likely serves as the mate recognition pheromone receptor in the male rotifer Brachionus manjavacas
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-05-12)
Mate recognition in the male rotifer Brachionus manjavacas is controlled by contact chemoreception, which occurs when the male has a head-on encounter with a conspecific female. The female expresses a glycoprotein, the ...
The Effects of Flow on Swimming Behavior of Brachionus manjavacas (Rotifera)
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-12-11)
Rotifers serve as model species and are crucial to the zooplankton communities in terms of feeding and nutrition as well as their overall contribution to aquatic food webs (Wallace et al., 2010). Rotifers experience fluid ...
Establishing a Working Protocol for Plasmid Cloning and shRNA Design in Endogenous Brachionus manjavacas Gene TRP7
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-07-18)
Current transfection protocol in rotifers only allows for temporary transfection within rotifers and does not allow for the continuous knockdown of endogenous genes, thereby inhibiting the possibility of observing long-term ...
