  • γδ T-celler i atlantisk laks: Innsyn i γδ T-cellers roller i antivirale responser mot Piscine Orthoreovirus (PRV) oppnådd gjennom genomiske og molekylære analyser 

    Herud, Mari Jahren (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2022-05-18)
    Hos virveldyr med kjeve er αβ- eller γδ T-celler definert som de to hovedpopulasjonene av T-celler. Laksefamilien omfatter atlantisk laks og regnbueørret som er viktige arter i oppdrett. Oppdrett av disse artene avhenger av vaksiner for å kunne kultiveres på en bærekraftig måte. Dette har skapt økt interesse for å forstå mekanismene i adaptive immunresponser mot patogener og vaksiner, og derfor ...

Organisms in the Arctic environment constantly experience extreme conditions, therefore life in the Arctic evolved different specialized strategies and molecules to survive which offers huge opportunities ...
  • The impact of advection on a Subarctic fjord food web dominated by the copepod Calanus finmarchicus 

    Basedow, Sünnje Linnéa; Renner, Angelika; Espinasse, Boris Dristan; Falk-Petersen, Stig; Graeve, Martin; Bandara, Kanchana; Sørensen, Kai; Eiane, Ketil; Hagen, Wilhelm (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-05-04)
    Fjord and shelf food webs are frequently supplemented by the advection of external biomass, which in high-latitude seas often comes in the form of lipid-rich copepods that can support a wide range of fish species, including Northeast Arctic cod (Gadus morhua). A seasonal match or mismatch at the lower trophic levels (phytoplankton and zooplankton) is central in determining how much energy and biomass ...
  • Habitat segregation by sympatric juvenile Arctic charr and brown trout in shallow lake areas: a consequence of interspecifc diferences in predator avoidance? 

    Svenning, Martin; Stien, Audun; Borgstrøm, Reidar (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-05-06)
    In sympatry, juvenile brown trout (Salmo trutta) usually occupy the shallow and most productive areas (littoral zone) of lakes, while juveniles of Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus) are found in deeper, less productive parts. In contrast, when Arctic charr juveniles occur in allopatry, they often occupy shallow littoral areas as well. Habitat segregation has traditionally been interpreted as a trade-of ...
