Up-regulation of sarcoplasmic reticulum function protects skeletal muscle against cytoplasmic calcium overload during hibernation in ground squirrels

Zhe Wang
We investigated the potential mechanism of the SR in maintenance of calcium (Ca2+) homeostasis of slow-twitch muscle (soleus, SOL), fast-twitch muscle (extensor digitorum longus, EDL) and mixed muscle (gastrocnemius, GAS) in hibernating ground squirrels (Spermophilus dauricus). Results showed that cytosolic and SR Ca2+ concentrations in distinct skeletal muscle fibers increased and decreased during late torpor, respectively, but both returned to summer-active levels during early torpor. Ryanodine receptor1 (RyR1) and sarco/endoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ ATPase isoform 1...

Data from: Games academics play and their consequences: how authorship, h-index, and journal impact factors are shaping the future of academia

Research is a highly competitive profession where evaluation plays a central role; journals are ranked and individuals are evaluated based on their publication number, the number of times they are cited, and their h-index. Yet, such evaluations are often done in inappropriate ways that are damaging to individual careers, particularly for young scholars, and to the profession. Furthermore, as with all indices, people can play games to better their scores. This has resulted in the...

Octapyrgites elongatus n. gen. n. sp., a relatively rare, tetraradial olivooid (Cnidaria, Medusozoa), is described from Bed 5 of the Yanjiahe Formation (Cambrian Stage 2) near Yichang, China. Though similar to Olivooides and Quadrapyrgites from the Fortunian Stage in consisting of a partially corrugated (long.) periderm with a quadrate (transv.) apical portion and V-shaped apertural lobes, O. elongatus is substantially larger than other olivooids. The elongate apical region of O. elongatus is similar to four-sided...
