    Signaling networks in muscle determination

    Kalcheim and colleagues propose a core signaling network for determining muscle subtype in chick where BMP/Notch and specific downstream signals favor vascular smooth muscle fate, suppressing skeletal muscle differentiation.

    Metabolites linked to pregnancy outcome

    Urinary metabolites collected in early pregnancy are associated with increased risk of preterm birth and fetal growth restriction, indicating that metabolic profiling could be used to predict those at risk of adverse pregnancy outcome.

  • Chemotherapy and the human milk microbiome

    Chemotherapy may cause a significant deviation from the healthy microbial and metabolomic profile of human breast milk, with a depletion of some important beneficial bacteria.

    Climate and sex influence population dynamics

    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.

  • Diving behaviour of the endangered tope shark

    The authors used electronic tagging to study the short-term diving behaviour and habitat preferences of endangered tope sharks Galeorhinus galeus in Northern Patagonia.

  • Coxiella burnetii infections in Swedish cattle, sheep, goats and moose

    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.

  • Adaptive immune suppression in children with sepsis

    The adaptive immune system is suppressed early in the course of pediatric septic shock and is associated with adverse infection-related outcomes.

  • Unique tenogenic progenitor properties

    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.

  • An underlying mechanism of early death in AD

    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.

  • Candidate gene approach points to parallels between human and canine diabetes

    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.
