Characterization of a novel RXR receptor in the salmon louse (Lepeophtheirus salmonis, Copepoda) regulating growth and female reproduction (BioMed Central, 2015-02-14)Background: Nuclear receptors have crucial roles in all metazoan animals as regulators of gene transcription. A wide range of studies have elucidated molecular and biological significance of nuclear receptors but there are ...Journal article
The ecdysone receptor (EcR) is a major regulator of tissue development and growth in the marine salmonid ectoparasite, Lepeophtheirus salmonis (Copepoda, Caligidae) (Elsevier, 2016-08)The function of the ecdysone receptor (EcR) during development and molting has been thoroughly investigated in some arthropods such as insects but rarely in crustacean copepods such as the salmon louse Lepeophtheirus ...Journal article
Molecular characterisation of the salmon louse, Lepeophtheirus salmonis salmonis (Krøyer, 1837), ecdysone receptor with emphasis on functional studies of female reproduction (Elsevier, 2015-02)The salmon louse Lepeophtheirus salmonis (Copepoda, Caligidae) is an important parasite in the salmon farming industry in the Northern Hemisphere causing annual losses of hundreds of millions of dollars (US) worldwide. To ...Journal article
