    Abstract : Internal fertilization usually implies that a spermatozoon, with intact attributes for zygote formation, passes all hurdles during its transport through the female genitalia and reaches the oocyte. During this journey, millions to billions of other spermatozoa perish. READ MORE

    Abstract : The neuropeptide Y (NPY) system consists of 3-4 peptides and 4-7 receptors in vertebrates. It has powerful effects on appetite regulation and is involved in many other biological processes including blood pressure regulation, bone formation and anxiety. READ MORE

  3. 3. Molecular Mechanisms of Resin Acids and Their Derivatives on the Opening of a Potassium Channel

    Author : Nina Ottosson; Fredrik Elinder; David Engblom; Bertil Hille; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Voltage-gated ion channels play fundamental roles in excitable cells, such as neurons, where they enable electric signaling. Normally, this signaling is well controlled, but brain damage, alterations in the ionic composition of the extracellular solution, or dysfunctional ion channels can increase the electrical excitability thereby causing epilepsy.

  4. 4. Effect of elevated pCO2 and environmental oxazepam on the behavior and physiology of teleost fish

    Author : Laura E. Vossen; Svante Winberg; Robert Gerlai; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : The number of new drugs coming to the market is declining while interest in lead discovery from natural resources is seeing a revival. Although methods for isolation and identification of natural products have advanced tremendously, methods for selection of potential leads have fallen behind. READ MORE
