Bone Response to Cyclooxygenase Inhibition and Mechanical Loading
(Creighton University, 2015-01-08)
Bone is a dynamic tissue constantly adapting to daily mechanical forces. Suppressing the bone’s ability to adapt to increased forces may lead to insufficient strength and ultimately fracture. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory ...
The Structural and Physiological Effects of -1.5°C, +4°C and +1°C Acclimation on the Antarctic Teleost Trematomus bernacchii
(Creighton University, 2007-12)
The Antarctic teleost Trematomus bernacchii lives in a saltwater environment with an average temperature of -1.8°C. These fish possess several unique adaptations including a serum osmolality that is nearly double that of ...
Effect of Blood Volume Manipulations and Warm Acclimation on Cortisol Levels in the Antarctic Teleost Trematomus bernacchii
(Creighton University, 2007)
Antarctic fish, such as the Trematomus bemacchii, maintain a serum osmolality of around 600 mOsm, nearly twice that of temperate fish. This high serum osmolality seawater surrounding Antarctica. Upon warm acclimation ...
