Data from: Cardiomyocyte mechanodynamics under conditions of actin remodelling

Ricardo H. Pires, Nithya Shree, Emmanuel Manu, Ewa Guzniczak & Oliver Otto
The mechanical performance of cardiomyocytes is an important indicator of their maturation state and of primary importance for the development of therapies based on cardiac stem-cells. As the mechanical analysis of adherent cells at high-throughput remains challenging, we explore the applicability of real-time deformability cytometry (RT-DC) to probe cardiomyocytes in suspension. RT-DC is a microfluidic technology allowing for real-time mechanical analysis of thousands of cells with a throughput exceeding 1,000 cells per second. For cardiomyocytes...

Data from: Genetic Monogamy despite frequent extra-pair Copulations in “strictly monogamous” wild Jackdaws

Lisa Gill, Jaap Van Schaik, Auguste Von Bayern & Manfred Gahr
“Monogamy” refers to different components of pair exclusiveness: the social pair, sexual partners, and the genetic outcome of sexual encounters. Avian monogamy is usually defined socially or genetically, while quantifications of sexual behavior remain scarce. Jackdaws (Corvus monedula) are considered a rare example of strict monogamy in songbirds, with lifelong pair bonds and little genetic evidence for extra-pair offspring. Yet jackdaw copulations, although accompanied by loud copulation calls, are rarely observed, since they occur visually...
