The phosphoarginine energy-buffering system of Trypanosoma brucei is essential and involves multiple arginine kinase isoforms with different subcellular locations. (2013)
Journal Article
Voncken, F., Gao, F., Wadforth, C., Harley, M., & Colasante, C. (2013). The phosphoarginine energy-buffering system of Trypanosoma brucei is essential and involves multiple arginine kinase isoforms with different subcellular locations. PloS one, 8(6), e65908. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0065908

Phosphagen energy-buffering systems play an essential role in regulating the cellular energy homeostasis in periods of high-energy demand or energy supply fluctuations. Here we describe the phosphoarginine/arginine kinase system of the kinetoplastid...

Identification of a female sex pheromone in Carcinus maenas (2011)
Journal Article
Hardege, J. D., Bartels-Hardege, H. D., Fletcher, N., Terschak, J. A., Harley, M., Smith, M. A., …Bublitz, R. (2011). Identification of a female sex pheromone in Carcinus maenas. Marine ecology progress series, 436, 177-189. https://doi.org/10.3354/meps09226

Despite major progress in our understanding of animal signaling systems, the identification of chemical signals in aquatic organisms is still in its infancy. Exemplary for this is the lack of structural knowledge of crustacean sex pheromones despite... Read More about Identification of a female sex pheromone in Carcinus maenas.

Simultaneously hermaphroditic shrimp use lipophilic cuticular hydrocarbons as contact sex pheromones (2011)
Journal Article
Hardege, J. D., Harley, M. A., Lin, J., Terschak, J. A., & Zhang, D. (2011). Simultaneously hermaphroditic shrimp use lipophilic cuticular hydrocarbons as contact sex pheromones. PloS one, 6(4), e17720. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0017720

Successful mating is essentially a consequence of making the right choices at the correct time. Animals use specific strategies to gain information about a potential mate, which is then applied to decision-making processes. Amongst the many informati...

Characterization of a sex pheromone in a simultaneous hermaphroditic shrimp, Lysmata wurdemanni (2010)
Journal Article
Harley, M., & Hardege, J. (2010). Characterization of a sex pheromone in a simultaneous hermaphroditic shrimp, Lysmata wurdemanni. Marine Biology, 157(1), (42887). ISSN 0025-3162

Olfactory chemical cues have been described to play important roles in the control of mate recognition in many decapod crustaceans. However, we still know very little about the chemical characteristics of the cues that coordinate pre-copulative behav...

A molecular approach to detect hybridisation between crucian carp (Carassius carassius) and non-indigenous carp species (Carassius spp. and Cyprinus carpio) (2005)
Journal Article
Hänfling, B., Bolton, P., Harley, M., & Carvalho, G. R. (2005). A molecular approach to detect hybridisation between crucian carp (Carassius carassius) and non-indigenous carp species (Carassius spp. and Cyprinus carpio). Freshwater biology, 50(3), 403-417. doi:10.1111/j.1365-2427.2004.01330.x

1. Releases of non-native fish into the wild is an increasing problem posing considerable ecological and genetic threats through direct competition and hybridisation. 2. We employed six microsatellite markers to identify first generation hybrids and...
