  Mammalian Biology - Elsevier
Its scope covers all aspects of mammalian biology, such as anatomy, morphology, palaeontology, taxonomy, systematics, molecular biology, physiology, neurobiology, ethology, genetics, reproduction, development, evolutionary biology, domestication, ecology, faunistics, wildlife biology, conservation biology, and the biology of zoo mammals.
To qualify for publication, a manuscript must contribute to the understanding of mammalian biology by presenting either new and original research data (as a full article or in short communication format) or a thorough review of a particular topic of mammalogical research.
Due to its wide range of topics, Mammalian Biology is primarily of interest to scientists working on the listed various fields of mammalogy but also to biologists and zoologists in general as well as to veterinarians and medical scientists.

  Extinction: A Climate Change Mammalian Population Collapse Mechanism
Application of modern reproductive physiology principles to the global mammalian extinctions at the end of the last ice age, which occurred during general greenhouse conditions and climatic oscillations, accounts for the elimination of primarily large mammals, and coeval dwarfing and skeletal abnormalities.
This paper outlines the sensitivity of mammalian reproduction systems to environmental heat, shows how heat is causing embryo failure, and explores the role of climatic warming in the global mammalian extinctions of 12,000-10,000 years ago, of which we are but the survivors.
Global mammalian extinctions of primarily large mammals, dwarfing, and skeletal abnormalities occurred during the abrupt and radical climate oscillations of the Pleistocene-Holocene transition at the end of the last ice age.

 Prion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This "specificity" phenomenon may explain why transmission of prion diseases from one species to another (such as from sheep to cows or from cows to humans) is a rare event.
The mammalian prion proteins do not resemble the prion proteins of yeast in their amino acid sequence.
Nonetheless, the basic structural features (formation of amyloid fibers and a highly specific barrier to transmission between species) are shared between mammalian and yeast prions.

 Theoretical Biology and Medical Modelling | Full text | Size control in growing yeast and mammalian cells
In a recent publication it was claimed that cultured mammalian cells, in contrast to yeasts, maintain a constant size distribution in the population without a size checkpoint.
For example, mammalian cells can certainly grow without entering S phase [6]; and the very large cells of early embryos only develop a size control after a number of cycles [13].
The mammalian cells situation is far more difficult, but there is reasonable hope that it can be solved by methods of tracking individual cells such as fibroblasts by a semi-automatic method and measuring their dry mass by interferometry [15].

 Mammalian Myotube Dedifferentiation Induced by Newt Regeneration Extract.
To investigate the causes underlying the lack of cellular plasticity in mammalian cells, we examined the effect of an extract derived from newt regenerating limbs on terminally differentiated mouse C2C12 myotubes.
Although cellular dedifferentiation has been demonstrated in newts, terminally differentiated mammalian cells are normally thought to be incapable of reversing the differentiation process (16, 17).
Based on the observation that newt myotubes reenter S phase when stimulated with serum or thrombin, whereas mammalian myotubes are refractory to these treatments (30-32), it was suggested that mammalian myotubes were intrinsically incapable of responding to dedifferentiation signals.

 American Zoologist: Osmotically responsive genes: The mammalian osmotic response element (ORE)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Hyperosmotic accumulation of organic osmolytes is transcriptionally regulated: e.g., betaine in bacteria (e.g., Escherichia coli), glycerol in yeast (e.g., Saccharomyces cerevisiae), betaine in plants (e.g., Spinacea oleracea L.) and sorbitol, betaine, and inositol in cells of the mammalian renal medulla.
Renal medullary cells, among mammalian cells, are uniquely exposed to hyperosmotic stress; in these cells, hyperosmotic stress results in accumulation of sorbitol as one of the predominant osmolytes.
While mammalian extracellular fluid is strictly regulated at about one third the salt concentration of seawater (full-strength seawater == 1,000 mosmol), cells in the kidney of virtually any mammal are routinely exposed to two- to three-fold the salinity of seawater.

 Euchromatin as an Extensile Force within Mammalian Cell Nuclei.
Extremes of chromatin compaction and small nuclear size are often found within cells with a high degree of heterochromatin and reduced nuclear activity, such as mature erythrocytes, granulocytes, lymphocytes, and spermatids [1].
Certain mammalian cells are capable of a reversible nuclear enlargement and contraction in vitro, such as in T-lymphocytes during and after exposure to a mitogen such as phytohemagglutinin (PHA).
Euchromatin 10 nm microfibrils are a dynamic extensile force within the mammalian cell nucleus [11].

 Melvin DePamphilis Lab - Current Research in DNA Replication
Therefore, we have focused our attention on how mammalian cells determine where they will initiate DNA replication, and how this process is regulated through changes in the ORC/chromatin complex.
In mammalian cells, the affinity of Orc1 for chromatin is cell cycle dependent.
To this end, we are identifying the factors that regulate ORC binding and dissociation from chromosomes and the factors that determine sequence-specific binding of Orc proteins.

 Live-Cell Microscopy Environmental Control for Mammalian Specimens
The ability to observe and quantify mammalian live-cell phenomena is made possible largely due to the recent advancements in technological tools for imaging.
Because the correlation between in vitro and in vivo phenomena is paramount for mammalian live-cell biology, it is of the utmost importance to accurately simulate the host conditions of the isolated specimen during live-cell microscopy.
Therefore, it follows that the accuracy of the data and thus the strength of the data's support should not be weakened through the data acquisition process.

The relative uniformity of the mammalian jaw-closer motor patterns during this chewing behavior, as characterized by electromyography (EMG), is striking.
In contrast to the relative uniformity in motor patterns, the anatomical diversity of jaw systems is impressive and probably reflects the adaptation to diet.
