A Study Of Defensive Mechanisms Employed By Two Species Of Nudibranchs Using Toxicity And Unpalatability Analyses, Sean Youn Oct 2016

A Study Of Defensive Mechanisms Employed By Two Species Of Nudibranchs Using Toxicity And Unpalatability Analyses, Sean Youn

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

Nudibranchs are marine invertebrates that have developed an intriguing defense mechanism, including warning coloration and the use of chemicals accumulated through their sponge diet. The goal of this study was to determine whether the strength of chemical defenses differs between dietary and accumulated secondary metabolites for two species: Glossodoris vespa and Ceratosoma brevicaudatum. First, NMR spectroscopy was used to not only identify specific compounds in the mantle (outer covering) and the viscera (gut) but also to analyze the possibility of nudibranch species transporting more toxic compounds for defensive purposes. Next, toxicity (brine shrimp) and palatability (Palaemon shrimp) assays were used ...

Rna-Seq Analysis Reveals Distinct Splenic Response Of Two Chickens Lines To Newcastle Disease Virus, Jibin Zhang, Michael G. Kaiser, Melissa S. Herrmann, Rodrigo A. Gallardo, David A. Bunn, Huaijun Zhou, Susan J. Lamont May 2016

Rna-Seq Analysis Reveals Distinct Splenic Response Of Two Chickens Lines To Newcastle Disease Virus, Jibin Zhang, Michael G. Kaiser, Melissa S. Herrmann, Rodrigo A. Gallardo, David A. Bunn, Huaijun Zhou, Susan J. Lamont

Newcastle disease virus (NDV) is an infectious virus in domestic chickens and is endemic in many countries. It has caused huge economic losses worldwide, especially in developing countries where the chickens and eggs are a primary source of economic income and family nutrition for the rural poor. Due to continuous evolution of NDV and unreliable vaccine production and distribution in developing countries, vaccine cannot prevent recurrent outbreaks of Newcastle disease. Therefore, breeding for NDV resistant chickens is a sustainable approach for alleviating rural poverty and food insecurity.
To identify critical genes regulating NDV resistance, an RNA-seq approach was undertaken with ...

SYE Legacies: Student Group Projects

The purpose of this project was to raise $1,200 to purchase a bulletproof, shatterproof vest for the newest member of the Pataskala Police Department K9 Unit. Recently, there have been many stories of K9s being killed in the line of duty. By providing a vest for a K9, we are hoping to protect him and allow him to continue what he does to protect the community. To raise money, we created a GoFundMe page that we shared on Facebook. We ended up raising $320 on the page and were very grateful that an anonymous donor stepped forward and donated ...


Mild Heat Stress Enhances Differentiation And Proliferation Of Japanese Quail Myoblasts And Enhances Slow Muscle Fiber Characteristics, Jibin Zhang, Paula Chen, Kichoon Lee, Seongsoo Hwang, Young Min Choi Apr 2016

Mild Heat Stress Enhances Differentiation And Proliferation Of Japanese Quail Myoblasts And Enhances Slow Muscle Fiber Characteristics, Jibin Zhang, Paula Chen, Kichoon Lee, Seongsoo Hwang, Young Min Choi

Jibin Zhang

The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of mild heat stress on muscle fiber hyperplastic and hypertrophic growth in quail primary myogenic cells to better understand the mechanisms leading to increased skeletal muscle development in avian embryos incubated at a higher temperature. Compared to control cultures maintained at 37°C, incubation at 39°C enhanced myotube length (P < 0.01) and diameter (P < 0.001) at 3 days after differentiation (D3). This enlargement of the myotubes incubated at 39°C can be explained by differences in the fusion index (56.7 vs. 46.2%, P < 0.05 ...


Distinct Cardiac Responses To Heat Stress Between Two Broiler Lines Identified By Transcriptome Analysis, Jibin Zhang, Carl J. Schmidt, Susan J. Lamont Jan 2016

Distinct Cardiac Responses To Heat Stress Between Two Broiler Lines Identified By Transcriptome Analysis, Jibin Zhang, Carl J. Schmidt, Susan J. Lamont

Jibin Zhang

Prolonged exposure to high temperature can significantly increase metabolism, depress appetite, reduce meat production and raise mortality in broilers. Because the cardiovascular system plays an important role to dissipate heat and transport oxygen, strong cardiac function is indispensable for birds to survive under heat stress. However, due to small hearts relative to body weight, modern broilers have high risk of heart failure at high temperature.
In this study, a Ross 708 line (modern broilers) and a Heritage broiler line (relaxed selection since the 1950s) were subjected to heat stress at 35℃  for 7 hours/day from 21 to 42 days ...

In early fall 2012, a 48-kg (106-lb) sexually intact male Dahl ram in fair body condition was found dead; the owner observed no clinical signs prior to death. The ram was part of a flock of 50 game animals used for high-fence hunting that was moved among pastures in Idaho, Utah, and Montana. The ram was housed primarily on flood-irrigated pasture in common with approximately 170 captive Rocky Mountain elk (Cervus canadensis). The owner reported that 12 other sheep had died over the past year without observed clinical signs, but none were submitted for postmortem examination. Both sheep and elk ...

Increasing numbers of fat cells in adipose tissue are attributed to proliferation of preadipocytes or immature adipocytes in the early stages as well as adipogenic differentiation in the later stages of adipogenesis. Although both events are involved in the increase in fat cell numbers, they are contrary to each other in that the former requires cell cycle activity whereas the latter requires cell cycle withdrawal. Therefore, appropriate regulation of cell cycle inhibition is critical to adipogenesis.
To explore the important cell cycle inhibitors and study their expression in adipogenesis, a strategy was adopted that combined the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO ...

Examining Trends In Taste Preferences, Market Demand, And Annual Catch In An Indigenous Marine Turtle Fishery In Southwest Madagascar, Kristin Jones Apr 2011

Examining Trends In Taste Preferences, Market Demand, And Annual Catch In An Indigenous Marine Turtle Fishery In Southwest Madagascar, Kristin Jones

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

The worldwide exploitation of marine turtles has been common throughout human history, turtle products including carapaces for decoration and use, skin for leather, and eggs and meat for consumption. The hunting of marine turtles has long established economic importance among Madagascar's coastal inhabitants and is an activity traditionally associated with integral cultural and spiritual values. Due to overexploitation and a combination of relatively newer threats such as pollution, habitat loss, and incidental fisheries take, however, all marine turtle species in the Indian Ocean are considered to be endangered or critically endangered. Although Madagascar's marine turtles have been legally ...

Ext Cs - Calfnes Spanish, Fall 2004, Hector Mendiola

University Extension - OCW

Hector Mendiola, a retired pediatrician from Mexico City, who was living in Utah, noticed that many of the children of migrant workers were illiterate in their native tongue and so he developed, along with Fred Berthong, a local community volunteer, a computer assisted program to help Hispanic youth who were illiterate in their native language to learn to read and write in Spanish.

The CALFNES program (Computer Assisted Language For Non English Speakers), which they created, and is now in the public school system, got the attention of the Mexican Federal Government, which in turn has led to recognition and ...
