The ecdysone receptor (EcR) is a major regulator of tissue development and growth in the marine salmonid ectoparasite, Lepeophtheirus salmonis (Copepoda, Caligidae) Sandlund, Liv; Nilsen, Frank; Male, Rune; Dalvin, Sussie (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
Functional investigations of the Ecdysone Receptor and production of ecdysone in the salmon louse (Lepeophtheirus salmonis) Sandlund, Liv (The University of Bergen, 2016-05-24)The salmon louse Lepeophtheirus salmonis is a marine ectoparasitic copepod naturally infecting salmonid fishes in the Northern hemisphere. At present, salmon louse infections are the most severe disease problem in the ...Doctoral thesis
