  • Conservation and divergence of chemical defense system in the tunicate Oikopleura dioica revealed by genome wide response to two xenobiotics 

    Yadetie, Fekadu; Butcher, Stephen; Førde, Hilde E.; Campsteijn, Coen; Bouquet, Jean-Marie; Karlsen, Odd André; Denoeud, France; Metpally, Raghu; Thompson, Eric M.; Manak, J. Robert; Goksøyr, Anders; Chourrout, Daniel (BioMed Central Ltd., 2012-02-02)
    Background Animals have developed extensive mechanisms of response to xenobiotic chemical attacks. Although recent genome surveys have suggested a broad conservation of the chemical defensome across metazoans, global ...

  • Histone variant innovation in a rapidly evolving chordate lineage 

    Moosmann, Alexandra; Campsteijn, Coen; Jansen, Pascal W. T. C.; Nasrallah, Carole; Raasholm, Martina; Stunnenberg, Henk G; Thompson, Eric M. (BioMed Central, 2011-07-15)
    Background: Histone variants alter the composition of nucleosomes and play crucial roles in transcription, chromosome segregation, DNA repair, and sperm compaction. Modification of metazoan histone variant lineages occurs ...

  • Lifespan extension in a semelparous chordate occurs via developmental growth arrest just prior to meiotic entry 

    Subramaniam, Gunasekaran; Campsteijn, Coen; Thompson, Eric (PLoS, 2014-04-02)
    It is proposed that the ageing process is linked to signaling from the germline such that the rate of ageing can be adjusted to the state of the reproductive system, allowing these two processes to co-evolve. Mechanistic ...
