High impact information on Reproduction, Asexual

  • To better understand the roles of aspartic proteases in blood stage growth and asexual reproduction of P. falciparum, we have characterized the biosynthesis, cellular location and pepstatin-binding properties of plasmepsin V (PM V) [1].
  • During the hatching of the gemmules (asexual reproduction bodies) of S. domuncula, the expression of both noggin and caspase increases, whereas no transcripts for silicatein can be detected, irrespective of the presence of silicate or ferric iron (Fe3+) in the medium [2].
  • These results suggest that the PmRAR is a mediator of retinoic acid signalling in transdifferentiation during asexual reproduction of protochordates [3].
  • The heterogeneity of COI gene sequences in the presumed asexual lineages would have resulted from an accumulation of mutations by repeated asexual reproduction [4].
  • Toxic effects of bisphenol A on sexual and asexual reproduction in Hydra oligactis [5].
