Dr. Christensen and Two Students Publish Paper

Slide1

Two AMC students, Nana Owusu and David Jean-Louis ('17), in collaboration with Dr. Christensen, recently published a paper in the journal Invertebrate Biology.  In the paper they examined how a protein called actin, which is present in all plant and animal cells, forms unique patterns (shown red in the image) in the the shell of a small freshwater invertebrate, Daphnia magna.  Moving forward, Dr. Christensen continues to work with AMC students on research projects that seek to shed light on the form and function of these unique, and beautiful, actin structures.  Here is an image of the actin in motion:
