Princeton University researchers have discovered that learned behaviors can be inherited for multiple generations in C. elegans
, transmitted from parent to progeny via eggs and sperm cells.
Maintenance of the C. elegans
colony was carried out according to the protocol of STIERNAGLE (2006) with modifications.
, which is about the size of the comma in this sentence, can be induced to sleep by certain stressors, such as heat.
1542 experimentally validated miRNA- gene pairs of C. elegans
genome and 387 miRNA-gene pairs of Rattus norvegicus genome are obtained from miRTarBase and used as a positive set.
as a model organism for genetic analyses
First, to be sure RIBE occurred in C. elegans
, researchers exposed a population of the worms to radiation, then took a medium secreted by the C.
In this present study, the toxicity of HAEIBS was evaluated in C. elegans
based on a series of endpoints.
has been shown to be a valuable model in understanding the molecular mechanisms that modulate aging and stress responses.
Researchers have known that C. elegans
' set of genetic instructions, its genome, is littered with PATCs (short for periodic An/Tn clusters), but didn't know why.
