Mysid hormone regulation and its potential disruption by chemical and other environmental stressors

Ghent University, USEPA

This is an ongoing project that started with my PhD work.  Most of this work has been done using the estuarine mysid Neomysis integer and includes the study of hormone-regulated processes such as molting, vitellogenesis an reproduction, marsupial development, energy and steroid metabolism.  More recently, we are focusing on the identification, cloning, sequencing and functional characterization of hormone receptors in mysids.  Future work includes the expression of hormone receptors during different life stages, receptor-binding assays, phylogenetic analyses, etc...
