Reproductive Sciences In Animal Conservation
Author: William V. Holt
Publisher: Springer
Release Date: 2014-08-04
Pages: 533
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Reproductive biology is more than the development of techniques for helping with too little or too much breeding. While some of the relevant techniques are useful for individual species, technical developments have to be backed up by thorough biological understanding of the background behind the problems. This book is therefore threefold; (1) it provides a snapshot of the state of the art in terms of species-specific reproductive technologies, whether for individual animals or whole taxonomic groups; (2) it sets the reproductive problems in context and emphasizes the links between animal-based problems and the wider world, e.g. reproductive fitness and (3) it looks forward and presents realistic assessments of how effective some of the more recently developed techniques in reproductive technology might be at combating extinctions. This is a wide-ranging book that will be relevant to anyone involved in reproductive biology or in species conservation and provides provide them some useful perspectives about the real utility of current and emerging technologies. It has contributions from experts in reproduction and related fields.

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The Fourth Edition of Knobil & Neill continues to serve as a reference aid for research, to provide the historical context to current research, and most importantly as an aid for graduate teaching on a broad range of topics in human and comparative reproduction. In the decade since the publication of the last edition, the study of reproductive physiology has undergone monumental changes. Chief among these advances are in the areas of stem cell development, signaling pathways, the role of inflammation in the regulatory processes in the various tissues, and the integration of new animal models which have led to a greater understanding of human disease. The new edition synthesizes all of this new information at the molecular, cellular, and organismal levels of organization and present modern physiology a more understandable and comparative context. The Fourth Edition has been extensively revised, reflecting new fundamental advancements in this rapidly advancing field. Provides a common language for researchers across the fields of physiology, endocrinology, and biology to discuss their understanding of reproduction. Saves academic researchers time in quickly accessing the very latest details on reproductive physiology, as opposed to searching through thousands of journal articles.

Stem Cell Maintenance In Naked Mole Rats And Other Longevity Mechanisms In Rodents
Author: Zhonghe Ke

Release Date: 2018
Pages: 183
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

"This thesis investigated the stem cell biology of the longest-lived rodent the naked mole rat (Heterocephalus glaber, NMR), compared to the short-lived laboratory mouse. The NMR is one of only two eusocial mammals, shows extreme longevity with a maximum lifespan of 32 years and negligible age-associated degeneration. During aging, stem cells play a pivotal role in maintaining tissue homeostasis by replenishing damaged and dead cells with newly differentiated functional cells. Age-associated stem cell dysfunction is a driving force of aging. What stem cell capacity the NMR has and how the NMR maintains their stem cell pool is unknown. In this thesis, I comparatively studied the hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) properties in the NMR and the mouse. I employed BrdU label retention assays to label HSC and track the HSC turnover. I was able to show that the BrdU label-retaining cells were responsive to fluorouracil induced bone marrow injury. I have discovered that the NMR HSC localizes to a niche with extremely high levels of high molecular weight hyaluronic acid (HA), displays slow turnover and extreme quiescence, compared to the mouse HSC. I have demonstrated that the niche HA levels reversely relate to HSC reactive oxidative species (ROS) levels. In addition, overexpressing NMR HAS2 in mice reduces ROS in the HSC and expands the HSC pool by about 3-fold. I have also shown the inhibition of HA synthesis by 4-MU impaired hematopoiesis in NMRs. With these findings, I propose a model of HSC maintenance that highlights the key role of niche HA in maintaining the quiescent HSC pool. Additionally, I describe the NMR iPSC reprogramming done with extensive collaboration with Dr. Li Tan. We have found the NMR fibroblasts are resistant to both the mouse and the NMR defined factors induced reprogramming, either in primed or nav̐e culture conditions. We have screened factors enhancing reprogramming and found the large T antigen drastically increased iPSC reprogramming efficiency. We have found that the NMR fibroblasts have a more repressive Rb signal pathway and large T induces massive opening of more closed promoter regions in the NMR, compared to the mouse. These results suggest that NMR displays a more stable epigenome that resists iPSC reprogramming. In another study that I collaborated with Dr. Jorge Azpurua, we have discovered that the NMR shows about 10 times higher translation fidelity than the mouse. However, whether the translation fidelity correlates with species maximum lifespan is unknown. Thus, I examined translation fidelity in 17 rodent species with diverse maximum lifespans. I have found that the fidelity at the first and second codon positions strongly correlates with species maximum lifespan, and that correlation remains significant after phylogenetic correction. This finding suggests that translation fidelity plays a novel role in longevity. Lastly, I had been managing the NMR colonies during my study and developed strategies to improve the husbandry and breeding of captive NMR colonies. As breeding and keeping NMRs in captivity is challenging to researchers, the slow breeding and low survival of NMRs under laboratory condition limits the NMR research. I have optimized the colony setting which allows NMR colonies to settle down more rapidly and established different chambers for different functions. I have found that pairing young NMRs, but not younger than 2 years old, could result in higher successful rate of establishing new colonies. I have also successfully cross-fostered NMR pups in a foreign colony. All of these strategies will help researchers struggling with breeding NMRs in captivity."--Pages ix-x.
