Enzymatic determination of itoic acid, a Bacillus subtilis siderophore, and 2,3-dihydroxybenzoic acid.
(East Carolina University, 1993-07)
A specific enzymatic method to determine the amounts of itoic acid, a Bacillus subtilis siderophore, and 2,3-dihydroxybenzoic acid (2,3-DHBA) was devised. A sample was incubated first with hippurate hydrolase andthenwith ...
Method of treating anxiety-related disorders with 2-aminocycloaliphatic amide compounds
A method for combatting anxiety in a subject in need of such treatment is provided. The method comprises administering to the subject a 2-aminocycloaliphatic amide kappa opioid agonist in an effective anxiety-combatting amount.
Identification and mapping of two divergent, unlinked major histocompatibility complex class II B genes in Xiphophorus fishes.
(East Carolina University, 1998-08)
We have isolated two major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II B genes from the inbred fish strain Xiphophorus maculatus Jp 163 A. We mapped one of these genes, designated here as DXB, to linkage group III, linked ...
Visual mate choice in poison frogs.
(East Carolina University, 1999-11-07)
We investigated female mate choice on the basis of visual cues in two populations of Dendrobates pumilio, the strawberry poison frog, from the Bocas del Toro Archipelago in Panama, Central America. Mate choice experiments ...
Characterization of critical spawning habitats of weakfish, spotted seatrout and red drum in Pamlico Sound using hydrophone surveys
Final report for "Characterization of critical spawning habitats of weakfish, spotted seatrout and red drum in Pamlico Sound using hydrophone surveys."
Determining the Relationship Between Water Quality and Ulcerative Mycosis in Atlantic Menhaden
(East Carolina University, 1993-03)
The objectives of this study were to investigate the possible causes of ulcerative mycosis (UM) in the Albemarle-Pamlico Estuary. Ulcerative mycosis is the commonest disease affecting the finfish populations of the ...
Life History Aspects of the Hickory Shad (Alosa Mediocris) in the Albemarle Sound/ Roanoke River Watershed, North Carolina
(East Carolina University, 1998-01)
The hickory shad (Alosa mediocris), which supports commercial and recreational fisheries in the Roanoke River and Albemarle Sound, North Carolina, is an anadromous species closely related to the American shad (A. sapidissima). ...
Benthic Invertebrate Utilization of Man-Made and Natural Wetlands
(East Carolina University, 1990-04)
The benthic invertebrate communities of man-made and natural oligohaline wetlands were studied over time with the objectives of: (1) comparing faunal utilization of man-made and natural systems; (2) determining the rate ...
Skimmer Trawl Modifications to Reduce Bycatch in the Inshore Brown and Pink Shrimp Fishery in North Carolina
(East Carolina University, 1995-06)
A study was conducted during May-June 1995 comparing catch composition of a standard high profile skimmer trawl net (12 fi) and a low profile skimmer trawl net (3 fi) in the North and Newport Rivers, North Carolina. Each ...
Patterns of Succession in Man-Made and Natural Wetlands
(East Carolina University, 1990-03)
The response of estuarine benthos to disturbance was investigated to test the hypotheses that season, sediment, composition, and location significantly affect patterns of recolonization. The study was conducted in two ...
