“Protein kinase C in the wood frog…” is now live at PeerJ

Our most recently-published paper, "Protein kinase C in the wood frog, Rana sylvatica: reassessing the the tissue-specific regulation of PKC isozymes during freezing" is now live at PeerJ. Our paper can be reached via this direct link: http://dx.doi.org/10.7717/peerj.558 Because PeerJ is an Open Access journal, we also have a free PDF available right here. https://twitter.com/thePeerJ/status/507907027163561984 https://twitter.com/thePeerJ/status/507449913303896064

Now accepted for publication: “Protein kinase C in the wood frog, Rana sylvatica: reassessing the tissue-specific regulation of PKC isozymes during freezing”

It's been a lengthy process requiring several rounds of revisions, but we're pleased to announce that "Protein kinase C in the wood frog, Rana sylvatica: reassessing the tissue-specific regulation of PKC isozymes during freezing" has been accepted for publication in the journal PeerJ. The publication stems from work that Chris completed as a graduate student in … Continue reading Now accepted for publication: “Protein kinase C in the wood frog, Rana sylvatica: reassessing the tissue-specific regulation of PKC isozymes during freezing”

“Protein kinase C in the wood frog, Rana sylvatica…” is now available at PeerJ PrePrints

Chris has recently submitted a new manuscript to the online journal PeerJ entitled "Protein kinase C in the wood frog, Rana sylvatica: reassessing the tissue-specific regulation of PKC isozymes during freezing." Presented with an interesting option, he also chose to submit it to the accompanying preprint service, PeerJ PrePrints. The manuscript is therefore now also published in … Continue reading “Protein kinase C in the wood frog, Rana sylvatica…” is now available at PeerJ PrePrints

Student evaluations of teaching for Signal Transduction are in

Last semester (Winter 2013), Chris taught at Mount Allison University a 4th-year biochemistry course called Signal Transduction (BIOC 4031). As with all courses at Mount Allison, and many other universities, students marked the end of the semester by evaluating the course, and the instructor himself. These evaluations have recently been tabulated and returned to Chris, … Continue reading Student evaluations of teaching for Signal Transduction are in

“Signal Transduction” comes to an end

Today marked the final lecture for the Winter 2013 edition of Signal Transduction (BIOC 4031). Signal Transduction is a course that explores the regulation of metabolism and physiology by a process stemming from a ligand-receptor interaction, typically at the cell surface, and propagating through the cell machinery to metabolic enzymes, transcription factors, DNA packaging proteins, … Continue reading “Signal Transduction” comes to an end
