The expression of genes involved in excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmission in turtle (Trachemys scripta) brain during anoxic submergence at 21°C and 5°C reveals the importance of cold as a preparatory cue for anoxia survival Couturier, Christine Stephanie; Stecyk, Jonathan Anthony William; Ellefsen, Stian; Sandvik, Guro Katrine; Milton, Sarah L.; Prentice, Howard M.; Nilsson, Göran Erik (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)We investigated if transcriptional responses are consistent with the arrest of synaptic activity in the anoxic turtle (Trachemys scripta) brain. Thirty-nine genes of key receptors, transporters, enzymes and regulatory ...
Extreme anoxia tolerance in crucian carp and goldfish through neofunctionalization of duplicated genes creating a new ethanol- producing pyruvate decarboxylase pathway Fagernes, Cathrine Elisabeth; Stensløkken, Kåre-Olav; Kjendseth, Åsmund Røhr; Berenbrink, Michael; Ellefsen, Stian; Nilsson, Göran Erik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)Without oxygen, most vertebrates die within minutes as they cannot meet cellular energy demands with anaerobic metabolism. However, fish of the genus Carassius (crucian carp and goldfish) have evolved a specialized ...
