• To understand better the molecular bases of humidity sensing, investigated several genes encoding channels associated with mechanosensation, thermosensing or water transport. (wikipedia.org)
  • Aim 1) Establish the molecular and cellular receptors that provide thermosensory input In aims 1.a. and 1.b., we will identify the molecular basis of thermosensing by thermosensory neurons in the larval Dorsal Organ and examine their roles in guiding behavior through cell-specific inhibition and activation combined with high-resolution behavioral analysis.

  • Although important contributions have been made in the investigation of TRPV1 thermosensing, its mechanism has remained elusive. (gaylesan.com)
  • The author, George Somero, make an interesting point that we might assume that "changes in temperature often are regarded as having negative influences on macromolecular stability" adding "However, there is also a 'good' side to this thermal perturbation: the alteration in conformation of the macromolecule that is caused by a change in temperature can function as a thermosensing mechanism and lead to downstream changes that are adaptive to the cell.

  • It can be repressed by the aforementioned thermosensing device A. Low-temperature control system A. In order to test the function of A and pTet, we constructed B with GFP (green fluorescence protein) gene behinds cry gene. (igem.org)
  • In vitro studies with highly purified TlpA showed concentration and temperature dependence for both fully folded conformation and function, indicating that the thermosensing in TlpA is based on monomer-to-coiled-coil equilibrium. (termsreign.cf)
  • This graph shows the total number of publications written about "Thermosensing" by people in Harvard Catalyst Profiles by year, and whether "Thermosensing" was a major or minor topic of these publication. (harvard.edu)
  • Indirect mechanisms involving temperature-dependent growth, in addition to direct thermosensing, may be widely relevant in long-term biological sensing of naturally fluctuating temperatures. (jic.ac.uk)
  • These findings reveal a morphogenetic role for IRs and demonstrate the central role of phasic thermosensing in innocuous thermosensation. (elsevier.com)
  • tomato (Pst) DC3000 independent of major PIF proteins, which are implicated in thermosensing in Arabidopsis. (thecomonline.net)
