YAC Protocols

In YAC Protocols skilled researchers supply a entire number of their simply reproducible and confirmed equipment for studying complicated human, animal, and plant genomes. The step by step protocols disguise all features of yeast man made chromosomes, starting from the development of YAC libraries to their garage, screening, and database administration, and to their use in such professional purposes because the move of YACs to mammalian cells and the isolation of coding sequences from YACs.

Example text

It is now accepted that in humans the clinical (post-operative) pain differs markedly from physiological pain (Cousins and Power, 2003). While the mechanisms remain unclear and the extent of pain perception is arguable, it is very probable that as fish and other aquatic animals are able to detect and perceive pain, it may follow that they could also suffer from different ‘types’ of pain. Were this to be demonstrated, the approach to commercial handling, tagging and marking, surgical procedures, fishing and angling would require substantial revision.

Crustacean and gastropod after H˚astein et al. 2005; cephalopod after Young, 1967). integration takes place. , 2001). The brain mass to body mass ratio in cephalopods is well within the vertebrate range, being smaller than that of birds and mammals but larger than most fish and reptiles (Packard, 1972). It is important to recall that these nervous systems have developed separately from the vertebrate plan and consequently it is extremely difficult to compare structure and function among these groups.

Sneddon (2003a, 2003b) showed that the rubbing behaviour exhibited following injection of acetic acid into the lips of trout was reduced when morphine was administered, again confirming the presence of opioid receptors in these fish. Opioid receptors and analgesia have also been clearly demonstrated in amphibians, and Stevens and Rothe (1997) suggested that such mechanisms may be common to all vertebrates. Overall, these substances and their receptors are very similarly manifested in lower and higher vertebrates.
