Seminar on comparative animal physiology (1/3): Sjannie Lefevre Nilsson
Seminar by Sjannie Lefevre Nilsson from the Department of Biosciences: "Living without oxygen - the case of the crucian carp".
In my talk I will first give an overview of the physiological problems most animals encounter when there is not enough oxygen, and then describe the mechanisms utilized by the crucian carp (Carassius carassius) to overcome these problems. I will then present some of our recent research regarding brain cell death, oxidative damage, and reactive oxygen species, and focus on a few particularly interesting examples of transcriptional changes observed in an RNAseq experiment.
The Head of Departement, Rein Aasland, encourage everyone at the Departement to attend these most important seminars.
Coffee and buns will be served.
