September 3, 2021
Tracey Schock, Elena Legrand, J. Sook Chung, Tsvetan Bachvaroff
The crustacean molting process is regulated by an interplay of hormones produced by the eyestalk ganglia and Y-organs (YO). Molt-inhibiting hormone and crustacean hyperglycemic hormone released by the sinus gland of the eyestalk ganglia (EG) inhibit the

Evaluation of Graded Levels of Soy Oil as a Fish Oil Replacement in High Soy Protein Feeds for Juvenile Red Drum, Sciaenops ocellatus

June 30, 2020
Tracey B. Schock, Aaron Watson, Michael P. Napolitano, John A. Bowden, Jason Frost, Justin Yost, Michael R. Denson
A 9-week feeding trial was conducted with juvenile red drum, Sciaenops ocellatus, to evaluate the use of soy oil as a fish oil replacement. Three primary protein sources (fishmeal - FM, soybean meal - SBM, and soy protein concentrate - SPC) were utilized

Examining Mercury Transfer in the American Alligator

December 6, 2019
Stephen E. Long, Tracey B. Schock, Nilsen Frances
Prenatal exposure to environmental contaminants can cause developmental issues in humans and wildlife. Mercury (Hg) is particularly detrimental, often impairing the organization and development of important organ systems by causing irreparable damage

Remote blubber sampling paired with liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry for steroidal endocrinology in free-ranging bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus)

June 11, 2019
Ashley S. Boggs-Russell, Jared M. Ragland, Eric Zolman, Tracey B. Schock, Jeanine S. Morey, Thomas M. Galligan, Greta Dalle Luche, Brian C. Balmer, Randall S. Wells, John R. Kucklick, Lori Schwacke
Liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry allows for the measurement of steroid hormone suites in the blubber of marine mammals. By combining this technology with minimally invasive techniques such as remote biopsy, endocrine profiles can be assessed

Examining American Alligators as Sentinels of Toxic Trace Element Exposure in Human Populations

April 15, 2019
Frances Nilsen, Thomas Rainwater, Stephen E. Long, Tracey Johnston, Philip Wilkinson, Arnold Brunell, Brittany Kassim, John A. Bowden
Mercury (Hg) is a ubiquitous toxic element eliciting a myriad of health problems including Minamata disease. Exposure to methylmercury, the most toxic bioaccumulative form of Hg, occurs through aquatic dietary sources. Many nations have consumption

Examining Heat Treatment for Stabilization of the Lipidome

February 16, 2018
John Bowden, Candice Z. Ulmer, Christina Jones, Tracey Johnston, Jeremy P. Koelmel, Timothy J. Garrett, Richard A. Yost
Aim: To confidently determine lipid-based biomarkers, it is important to minimize variation introduced during preanalytical steps. We evaluated reducing variation associated with lipid measurements in invertebrate sentinel species using a state-of-the-art

Trichothiazole A, a dichlorinated polyketide featuring an embedded thiazole isolated from Trichodesmium thiebautii blooms

September 18, 2017
Tracey B. Schock, Peter D. Moeller, Rick Belisle, Christopher W. Via, Tracy A. Villareal, Kevin Beauchesne, Matthew J. Bertin, Paul Zimba
Mass spectrometry-guided isolation of the lipophilic extract of Trichodesmium thiebautii bloom material led to the isolation and structure characterization of a new thiazole-containing di-chlorinated polyketide (1). The structure of 1 was deduced using 1D

Seasonal variation of total mercury burden in the American alligator (Alligator mississippiensis) at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge (MINWR), Florida

July 8, 2017
Frances Nilsen, Jonathan E. Dorsey, Stephen E. Long, Tracey B. Schock, John A. Bowden, Russell H. Lowers, Louis J. Guillette Jr.
Seasonal variation of mercury (Hg) is not well studied in free-ranging wildlife. Atmospheric deposition patterns of Hg have been studied in detail and have been modeled for both global and specific locations with great accuracy and correlates to
