    Description / Table of Contents: Xiaoming Wang and Richard H. Tedford combine their research with Mauricio Antón's impeccable reconstructions to present a remarkable portrait of canids over the past 40 million years. Wang and Tedford cull their history from the most recent scientific research conducted on the vast collections of the American Museum of Natural History and other leading institutions. With their rich fossil record, diverse adaptations to various environments, and different predatory specializations, canids are an ideal model organism for the mapping of predator behavior and morphological specializations. They also offer an excellent contrast to felids, which remain entrenched in extreme predatory specializations. The innovative illustrated approach of this book transforms the science of paleontology into a thrilling visual experience, and it forms the perfect accompaniment to an extremely important branch of animal and fossil study.

    Keywords: Mammals, Fossil - Asia. ; Electronic books.
    Description / Table of Contents: The first textbook devoted to the late Cenozoic (Neogene) mammalian biostratigraphy and geochronology of Asia, this volume deploys cutting edge biostratigraphical and geochemical dating methods to map the emergence of mammals across the continent. Written by specialists working in a variety of Asian regions, it uses data from many basins with spectacular fossil records to establish a groundbreaking geochronologic framework for land mammal evolution. Asia's violent tectonic history has resulted in some of the world's most varied topography, and its high mountain ranges and intense monsoon climates have spawned widely diverse environments over time. These geologic conditions profoundly influenced the evolution of Asian mammals and their migration into Europe, Africa, and North America. Focusing on amazing new fossil finds that have redefined Asia's role in mammal evolution, this textbook synthesizes information from a range of field studies on Asian mammals and biostratigraphy, helping to trace the histories and movements of extinct and extant mammals from various major groups and all northern continents, and providing geologists from all disciplines with a richer understanding of a variety of Asia's terrains.

    Notes: b1. The effects of central administration of met-enkephalin, leu-enkephalin, the enkephalin analogue FK-33824 and the opiate antagonist naloxone on plasma concentration of adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) were examined in conscious sheep.2. Intracerebroventricular infusion of met-enkephalin and FK-33824 significantly decreased the basal plasma concentration of ACTH.3. Intracerebroventricular infusion of FK-33824 inhibited the haemorrhage-induced increase in plasma concentration of ACTH.4. Intracerebroventricular infusion of naloxone attenuated the central inhibition of plasma concentration of ACTH induced by FK-33824, but intravenous infusion of naloxone had no effect on the reduction in plasma concentration of ACTH induced by FK-33824.5. These studies suggest that in sheep met-enkephalin may play a central inhibitory role in the control of ACTH secretion.

Consequently, the biological history of eastern North America, including the eastern deciduous forest, remains largely hidden. ...

    Notes: Abstract: A 20-kDa DNA-binding protein that binds the AT-rich sequences within the promoters of the brain-specific protein kinase C (PKC) γ and neurogranin/RC3 genes has been characterized as chromosomal nonhistone high-mobility-group protein (HMG)-I. This protein is a substrate of PKC α, β, γ, and δ but is poorly phosphorylated by PKC ε and ζ. Two major (Ser44 and Ser64) and four minor phosphorylation sites have been identified. The extents of phosphorylation of Ser44 and Ser64 were 1:1, whereas those of the four minor sites all together were 〈30% of the major one. These PKC phosphorylation sites are distinct from those phosphorylated by cdc2 kinase, which phosphorylates Thr53 and Thr78. Phosphorylation of HMG-I by PKC resulted in a reduction of DNA-binding affinity by 28-fold as compared with 12-fold caused by the phosphorylation with cdc2 kinase. HMG-I could be additively phosphorylated by cdc2 kinase and PKC, and the resulting doubly phosphorylated protein exhibited a 〉 100-fold reduction in binding affinity. The two cdc2 kinase phosphorylation sites of HMG-I are adjacent to the N terminus of two of the three predicted DNA-binding domains. In comparison, one of the major PKC phosphorylation sites, Ser64, is adjacent to the C terminus of the second DNA-binding domain, whereas Ser44 is located within the spanning region between the first and second DNA-binding domains. The current results suggest that phosphorylation of the mammalian HMG-I by PKC alone or in combination with cdc2 kinase provides an effective mechanism for the regulation of HMG-I function.
