The geographic range and population dynamics of species in which the sex-ratio is determined by temperature, such as some reptiles, is influenced by dispersal to a greater extent than species in which the sex-ratio is genetically determined.
The authors used electronic tagging to study the short-term diving behaviour and habitat preferences of endangered tope sharks Galeorhinus galeus in Northern Patagonia.
The prevalence of antibodies against C. burnetii in Swedish dairy cattle shows large regional differences. The results suggest that C. burnetii is a rare pathogen in the Swedish moose, goat and sheep populations.
Peritenon-derived and tendon proper progenitors respond uniquely in a regenerative model, highlighting the synergistic potential of including these progenitor populations in restorative tendon engineering strategies.
The adaptive immune system is suppressed early in the course of pediatric septic shock and is associated with adverse infection-related outcomes.
Cerebral inflammation, and not amyloid or tau pathology, is an independent risk factor for early death in Alzheimer’s disease (AD), which has implications for future clinical trials of disease-modifying therapies.
This study examined 18 genes associated with human monogenic diabetes, and tested whether they are also associated with diabetes in 17 different dog breeds. Six variants from five genes were associated with diabetes in some breeds, including two variants in ZFP57 associated with diabetes in two different breeds.
Over the past decade, 99.6% of drugs entering the Alzheimer’s disease drug development pipeline have failed and the number of clinical trials has been declining since the 2008 to 2009 period.
Decitabine may be associated with increased expression of the tumor suppressor genes, in tumors with low expression of those genes.
The treatment burden questionnaire (TBQ) translated to English is a reliable instrument in patients with chronic conditions from the PatientsLikeMe network, indicating that it could be used for other patients in English-speaking countries.
