Feeding Mistiming Decreases Reproductive Fitness in Flies.

06:11 EDT 16th April 2014 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Feeding Mistiming Decreases Reproductive Fitness in Flies."

The diurnally active fruit flies prefer a major meal in the morning. Feeding the flies in the evening uncouples their metabolic cycle from circadian activity rhythms. A paper by Xu et al. in this issue of Cell Metabolism found that such uncoupled rhythms reduce egg laying.

Reproductive Fitness and Genetic Transmission of Tetralogy of Fallot in the Molecular Age.

-Individuals with tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) now routinely survive to reproductive age and beyond. Reproductive fitness of adults with TOF and recurrence risks to offspring are of increasing interest i...

The E138A substitution in HIV-1 reverse transcriptase decreases in vitro susceptibility to emtricitabine as indicated by competitive fitness assays.

We characterized the relative fitness of multiple nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase (RT) inhibitor (NNRTI) resistant HIV-1 variants in the presence of etravirine (ETV), rilpivirine (RPV) and/or the...

Correlated changes in life history traits in response to selection for faster pre-adult development in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster.

Insects including the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster are under intense pressure to develop rapidly because they inhabit ephemeral habitats. We have previously shown that when selection for faster d...

Experimental demonstration of a parasite-induced immune response in wild birds: Darwin's finches and introduced nest flies.

Ecological immunology aims to explain variation among hosts in the strength and efficacy of immunological defenses. However, a shortcoming has been the failure to link host immune responses to actual...

The relationship between fitness and response to selection in Drosophila melanogaster.

The relationship between the selection response exhibited by a morphological trait and the correlated response observed on fitness values has been investigated to improve our understanding of micro-an...

Efficacy of Nasojejunal Enteral Feeding in Critically Ill Patients.

The purpose of this study is to determine if naso-jejunal feeding (feeding beyond the stomach) improves the efficacy of enteral feeding (feeding into the gut) in critically ill patients....

A Study on the Effects of Feeding and Feeding Methods on Breathing Pattern in Very Low Birth Weight Preterm Infants

In this study, we want to see how feeding affects breathing in small premature babies. Using a special feeding tube in the stomach, we can measure how the diaphragm (a large breathing musc...

Preterm Neonatal Feeding Protocol Comparing Feed Administration Time

Doctors have tried many different methods of feeding to try to decrease feeding intolerance in preterm babies so that they spend less time receiving liquid nutrition and have fewer problem...

The Effect of Continuous Versus Enteral Pump Feeding in Aspiration in Tube Fed Patients

Background: Tube feeding had been found to be a cause of aspiration pneumonia. Continuous pump feeding at slower rates as compared to bolus feeding may be less associated with aspiration...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The relative amount by which the average fitness of a POPULATION is lowered, due to the presence of GENES that decrease survival, compared to the GENOTYPE with maximum or optimal fitness. (From Rieger et al., Glossary of Genetics: Classical and Molecular, 5th ed)

A family of the order DIPTERA that includes the TSETSE FLIES. These flies occur only in Africa.

Nutritional support given via the alimentary canal or any route connected to the gastrointestinal system (i.e., the enteral route). This includes oral feeding, sip feeding, and tube feeding using nasogastric, gastrostomy, and jejunostomy tubes.

Family of flies in the order DIPTERA, commonly known as flesh flies. They lay their eggs in dead or decaying matter or open wounds.

Bloodsucking flies of the genus Glossina, found primarily in equatorial Africa. Several species are intermediate hosts of trypanosomes.
