  1. "CULTURING AMPHIBIANS FOR BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH"

    SBC: Central Valley Biological Inc            Topic: N/A

    LARGE NUMBERS OF RESEARCH QUALITY AMPHIBIANS ARE NEEDED ANNUALLY FOR BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH. CURRENTLY, THERE ARE SEASONAL SHORTAGES AND INCONSISTENT SUPPLY OF THE BULLFROG, RANA CATESBIANA AND AXOLOTL, AMBYSTOMA MEXICANUM. THROUGH TEMPERATURE MANIPULATION AND HORMONAL INJECTION IT WILL BE SHOWN THAT THESE AMPHIBIANS CAN NOT ONLY BE CULTURED AND CONDITIONED IN CAPTIVITY TO THE EXTEND NEEDED, BUT THAT ...
