Further studies on the adaptation of fish myofibrillar ATPases to different cell temperatures

first_imgPrevious studies on fish Mg2+Ca2+ activated myofibrillar ATPases have been extended to species inhabiting diverse thermal environments. Cold adapted ATPases have considerably higher catalytic centred activities at low temperatures than warm adapted ATPases. Differences in cell temperature have also lead to evolutionary modifications in thermodynamic activation parameters. The free energies (ΔG2+), enthalpies (ΔH2+) and entropies (ΔS2+) of activation of the Mg2+Ca2+ myofibrillar ATPase are positively correlated with adaptation temperature. Myofibrils with CaATP−2 as substrate in the absence of Mg2+ will hydrolyse ATP by a mechanism not associated with fibril shortening. Differences in activation enthalpies (ΔHH) between cold and warm adapted Ca2+-activated myofibrillar ATPases are less pronounced than for the physiological ATPase. Furthermore the Ca2+-activated ATPase showed no relationship between environmental temperature and substrate turnover number or free energy of activation (ΔG2+).last_img read more

Taking the sting out of darting: Risks, restraint drugs and procedures for the chemical restraint of Southern Hemisphere otariids

first_imgThe need to manage otariid populations has necessitated the development of a wide range of capture methods. Chemical restraint by remote drug delivery (i.e., darting) is a highly selective method that can be used to facilitate otariid capture in a range of scenarios, when other methods may be impracticable. However, the risks associated with darting otariids are not widely known and guidelines necessary to promote and refine best practice do not exist. We review the risks associated with darting and in light of our findings, develop darting guidelines to help practitioners assess and minimize risks during capture, anesthesia and recovery. Published studies reveal that mortalities associated with darting predominantly result from complications during anesthetic maintenance (e.g., prolonged respiratory depression, apnea, or hyperthermia), rather than from complications during capture or recovery. In addition to monitoring vital signs and proper intervention, the risk of irreversible complications during anesthesia can be reduced by administering drug doses that are sufficient to enable the capture and masking of animals, after which anesthetic depth can be regulated using gas anesthesia.last_img read more

WEEHAWKEN BRIEFS

first_img ×The Cumbia River Band joins forces with Chia’s Dance Party at Summer Concerts on the Hudson at Lincoln Harbor Park on Wednesday, July 12 at 7 p.m. (See brief) Zillow says Weehawken is the hottest housing market in New JerseyMany New Jersey towns have recovered from the 2008 housing crisis significantly faster than the rest of the state and are even experiencing higher home values than they were prior to the downturn. High demand by buyers and a relative housing stock shortage are sending real estate prices through the roof. Using Zillow’s Home Value Index, a recent article in NJ.com listed 19 New Jersey towns that have experienced unprecedented growth and their highest median home value at the beginning of 2017.Weehawken tops the list with a Zillow Median Value of $727,400, which is up 25.15 percent since March 2016. Located just north of Hoboken (number 5 on the list) and benefitting from Hoboken’s saturated market and a surge in development, buyers have looked to and settled in the waterfront community with an easy commute and New York City views. The Cumbia River Band joins forces with Chia’s Dance Party at Summer Concerts on the Hudson at Lincoln Harbor Park on Wednesday, July 12 at 7 p.m. (See brief)center_img Library events focus on Alexander HamiltonThe Weehawken Library is celebrating the township’s special relationship with Alexander Hamilton this month with two unique events for the public.First, the Library Board of Trustees is pleased to announce the acquisition of a new bust of the American icon, cast by noted artist (and former Weehawken resident) Giovanni Rapetti. The sculpture, which is cast in bronze, will be on permanent display at the library. The dedication of the Hamilton bust will be held on July 9th at 1 p.m. in the library’s historical room.Born in Como, Italy in 1862, Rapetti studied with Frederic August Bartholdi, designer of the Statue of Liberty. His contribution led to his name being inscribed in the statue’s crown. His most well-known personal works are both found on Boulevard East; the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial dedicated in 1930 and the Alexander Hamilton Memorial, which sits on the cliff area at Hamilton Avenue, high above the location of the bygone dueling grounds. The Hamilton Memorial was dedicated in 1935, the year before Rapetti’s passing at his Weehawken home on June 23, 1936.On Tuesday July 11, acclaimed writer Dr. Robert E. Wright, business, economic, financial, and monetary historian, will host a special presentation on Hamilton at the Weehawken Elks. As part of “Honoring American’s Hero” he will discuss the high bar for achievement necessary to deserve the title of “American Hero” as it relates to Hamilton’s key role in the transformation of the United States from 1785 to 1795. He will discuss many of the problems faced by Hamilton during those years, his proposed solutions and the remarkable results.Dr. Wright is the Nef Family Chair of Political Economy at Augustana University in Sioux Falls, SD, where he teaches courses in business, economic, financial and policy history. He is the editor or co-editor of 21 volumes and the author or co-author of 18 books, including “The Poverty of Slavery: How Unfree Labor Pollutes the Economy” (Palgrave Macmillan, 2017).This special event is free to the public and will be held at the Elks Club. Dr. Wright’s address will begin at 7 p.m. followed by an open talk session at 7:30 p.m.Co-sponsored by the Weehawken Historical Commission and the AHA Society, as part of CelebrateHAMILTON 2017.Cumbia River Band coming to Summer Concerts on the Hudson on July 12An evening of Colombian Cumbia music is the latest project by bandleader and multi-instrumentalist Martin Vejarano.
