Bursicon and neuropeptide cascades during the ecdysis program of the shore crab, Carcinus maenas

General and Comparative Endocrinology

Simon G WebsterJasmine H Sharp

Abstract

Very little is known regarding the release patterns of neuropeptides involved in ecdysis of crustaceans compared to insects. In particular, the dynamics of release of the insect cuticle hardening hormone bursicon, which has only recently been discovered in crustaceans, is unknown. Bursi...read more

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Congenital Heart Disease

Congenital heart diseases are present since birth and are a result of improper development of the heart. Prenatal diagnosis on screening ultrasound can detect these defects and better techniques for surgical repair have improved the life expectancy of those born with these diseases. Discover the latest research on congenital heart diseases here.

Tetralogy of Fallot

Tetralogy of Fallot is a congenital heart defect with an unknown cause which is typically treated by open heart surgery in the first year of life. Symptoms include bluish skin colour, heart murmur, and finger clubbing. Here is the latest research.

Neurohumoral Compensatory Mechanisms

The activation of neurohumoral compensatory mechanisms is a common physiological phenomenon in heart failure in order to make up for a failing heart, which will usually have a deteriorating effect on overall health condition.
