Color patterns are prominent features of many animals and are of high evolutionary relevance. In basal vertebrates, color patterns are composed of specialized pigment cells that arrange in multilayered mosaics in the skin. Zebrafish (Danio rerio), the preeminent model system...

Cardiac myosin-binding protein-C (cMyBP-C) is highly phosphorylated under basal conditions. However, its phosphorylation level is decreased in individuals with heart failure. The necessity of cMyBP-C phosphorylation for proper contractile function is well-established, but the physiological and pathological consequences of decreased...

Clonorchis sinensis is a group I bio-carcinogen responsible for cholangiocarcinoma (CHCA) in humans. However, the mechanism by which C. sinensis promotes carcinogenesis is unclear. Using the human cholangiocyte line H69, we investigated cell proliferation and gap junction protein expression after...

Glucocorticoids have been proposed to be both adipogenic and lipolytic in action within adipose tissue, although it is unknown whether these actions can occur simultaneously. Here we investigate both the in vitro and in vivo effects of corticosterone (Cort) on...
