  • Students on this project isolate chemical cues, assist with hormone manipulations, and conduct behavioral analysis. (jmu.edu)
  • With Dr. Avery and Dr. Michael Grace (Florida Institute of Technology), my lab has been isolating chemical cues in Burmese pythons by extracting and identifying the lipids produced in their shed skins. (jmu.edu)
  • Students in my lab are isolating chemical cues from the pythons and analyzing behavioral data from trials done in Gainesville. (jmu.edu)
  • In mammals, the sensory neurons of the vomeronasal organ detect non-volatile chemical cues, which requires direct physical contact with the source of odor. (wikipedia.org)
  • biological
  • Parasites reduce host biological fitness by general or specialized pathology, from parasitic castration and impairment of secondary sex characteristics, to the modification of host behavior. (wikipedia.org)
  • Dawkins wrote that evolution depended not on the particular chemical basis of genetics, but only on the existence of a self-replicating unit of transmission-in the case of biological evolution, the gene. (wikipedia.org)
  • signals
  • My research uses classical endocrinology techniques like castration and hormone replacement to effect change in animal behavior and chemical signals. (jmu.edu)
  • Chemical ecology of mate choice in invasive reptiles - My Ph.D. work enabled new collaborations with federal agencies that started with researchers at USDA (Drs. Michael Avery and Bruce Kimball) to determine the chemical signals used by invasive reptiles to find mates. (jmu.edu)
  • These chemical signals, which are specific to each male, are learned by the female during mating, or shortly after. (wikipedia.org)

  • As it is, only Indonesia seems to have a real understanding of the trauma inflicted upon young children when they're sexually abused - or an awe-inspiring sense of justice. (gravernews.com)

  • This was made clear when the president of Indonesia decreed a new law which punishes child sex abusers with chemical castration and/or death. (gravernews.com)
  • Knockdown of p300 by specific siRNA, but surprisingly not of CBP, led to an increase of caspase-dependent apoptosis involving both extrinsic and intrinsic cell death pathways in androgen-dependent and castration-resistant prostate cancer cells. (aacrjournals.org)
  • illegal
  • Where chemical castration is mandatory pursuant to section 794.0235(1)(b) because the defendant has a prior conviction for sexual battery, the failure to impose chemical castration would render the sentence incomplete, rather than illegal, and the sentencing court would be able to correct the sentence within 60 days of the original sentencing pursuant to Fla. R. Crim. (blogspot.com)

  • Our current fixation with prison-based, touchy-feely psychological rehabilitation programs is not only costly, but clearly not providing either the victims, or the community with any sense of continued security. (phildye.com.au)
  • sexual
  • When a defendant has been convicted of sexual battery as described in section 794.011(FN1) the sentencing court may in its discretion sentence the defendant to be treated with MPA, more commonly known as "chemical castration," according to a schedule of administration monitored by the Department of Corrections.

  • Chemical castration entails the offender consuming a cocktail of drugs which reduces their libido and, in effect, sexual activity. (gravernews.com)
  • Chemical castration is castration via anaphrodisiac drugs, whether to reduce libido and sexual activity, to treat cancer, or otherwise. (wikipedia.org)

  • In September 2003, Zicam faced lawsuits from users who claimed that the product, a nasal gel containing zinc gluconate and several inactive ingredients, negatively affected their sense of smell and sometimes taste. (wikipedia.org)
  • specific
  • To discover a potential anticancer effect of p300/CBP inhibition, we used two different approaches: (i) downregulation of p300 and CBP by specific short interfering RNA (siRNA) and (ii) chemical inhibition of the acetyltransferase activity by a newly developed small molecule, C646.
