A method for synchrony of adult Caenorhabditis elegans

, : A method for synchrony of adult Caenorhabditis elegans. Nematologica 26(4): 491-493

A method for obtaining synchronized populations of Caenorhabditis elegans in sufficient quantity for life-history studies, that uses setting and filtration, is described. As C. elegans adults age there is a sequential gain and loss of reproduction, a decreasing resistance to osmotic stress, and an increasing loss of motility, accompanied by an increase in mortality.

We previously reported that cynomolgus monkey embryonic stem (ES) cells could be maintained under a feeder-free condition without using recombinant cytokines if sizes and numbers of ES colonies were kept within an appropriate range. Here we show t...

The degree of host specificity was quantified for the five extant New Zealand loranthaceous mistletoes (Alepis flavida, Ileostylus micranthus, Peraxilla colensoi, Peraxilla tetrapetala and Tupeia antarctica). Host specificity was found to be great...
