UCLA life scientists' study of abalone yields new insights into sexual reproduction
Date:8/14/2011

be interactions between microorganisms in oceans and chemical plumes for years. Zimmer and Riffell are the first to achieve the chemical measurements and develop the physical models.

Zimmer has received a new three-year federal award from the National Science Foundation for further studies in humans, abalone and sea urchins, working with Riffell and Roman Stocker, an associate professor of in civil and environmental engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Stocker is building microscopic devices that will allow the researchers to study a wide variety of chemical and physical environmental conditions.

Zimmer, Riffell and former UCLA postdoctoral scholar Patrick Krug isolated tryptophan and determined its function.

"Sexual reproduction and fertilization are controlled to a significant degree by chemical communication," Zimmer said. "We are learning how chemical communication occurs."
