    FcRn is a key player in several immunological and non-immunological processes, as it mediates maternal-fetal transfer of IgG, regulates the serum persistence of IgG and albumin, and transports both ligands between different ...

    Yersinia pestis, the etiologic agent of the disease plague, has been implicated in three historical pandemics. These include the third pandemic of the 19th and 20th centuries, during which plague was spread around the ...
  • Rollinson, Njal; Hutchings, Jeffrey (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    Parents can maximize their reproductive success by balancing the trade-off between investment per offspring and fecundity. According to theory, environmental quality influences the relationship between investment per ...
  • Gautestad, Arild O. (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2013)
    The flow of GPS data on animal space is challenging old paradigms, such as the issue of the scale-free Lévy walk versus scale-specific Brownian motion. Since these movement classes often require different protocols with ...
