  2. 2. Thyroid hormone mediates fibroblast growth factor receptor expression, which both alter cell surface mechanical properties of the mammalian cochlea

    Author : Katherine B. Szarama; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Cells in the mammalian hearing organ, the cochlea, develop a specialized patterning and cellular architecture necessary for hearing function. Cytoskeletal components, such as actin and microtubules, maintain the material and mechanical properties of these cells. READ MORE

  3. 3. Solide Molydbenum(II) Chloride Cluster compounds From a Hudrogen Bonding Poin of View

    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; fine-grained; cognitive theory; Resource; practice theory; resource alteration; resource understanding; micro-level;

    Abstract : Strategy work is principally about resource alteration. As managers attempt to alter their organizational resources, they need to ask two questions: “What are our resources?” and “How can we use these resources?” Managers will probably have little difficulty answering these questions in the case of tangible resources, e.g. READ MORE

  5. 5. Sex in Murky Waters : Anthropogenic Disturbance of Sexual Selection in Pipefish

    Author : Josefin Sundin; Anders Berglund; Gunilla Rosenqvist; Bob Wong; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Animals experience variation in their environment because of natural changes. However, due to anthropogenic disturbance, the speed and severity of these changes have recently increased. This thesis investigates how reproductive behaviours may be affected by human induced environmental change. READ MORE
