Objectives: To investigate whether thyroid function profiles can predict the poststroke fatigue (PSF) in patients with AIS. Methods: Stroke patients were consecutively recruited within 3 days of onset in Jinling hospital. Serum levels of thyroid hormones, thyroid antibodies, haematological indexes, and biochemical indexes were measured on admission. Fatigue was scored by the FSS. Association were analyzed with multivariate regression and restricted cubic splines. Results: Of the 704 stroke patients, 292 (41.5%) were diagnosed with fatigue...

Data from: Phagocytic intracellular digestion in amphioxus (Branchiostoma)

The digestive methods employed by amphioxus (Branchiostoma)—both intracellular phagocytic digestion and extracellular digestion—have been discussed since 1937. Recent studies also show that epithelial cells lining the Branchiostoma digestive tract can express many immune genes. Here, in Branchiostoma belcheri, using a special tissue fixation method, we show that some epithelial cells, especially those lining the large diverticulum protruding from the gut tube, phagocytise food particles directly, and Branchiostoma can rely on this kind of phagocytic intracellular...

Data from: Protective role of nano-selenium-enriched Bifidobacterium longum in delaying the onset of streptozotocin-induced diabetes

Yan Lin, Yongzhe Ren, Yan Zhang, Junjie Zhou, Feng Zhou, Quan Zhao, Genxing Xu & Zichun Hua
Bifidobacterium longum (B. longum) could accumulate Selenium (Se) and nano-Se in the form of Se-B. longum and Nano-Se-B. longum, respectively. In this study, the effect of Nano-Se-B. longum in diabetic mice was evaluated. Physiological and metabolic parameters such as blood glucose, body weight, serum insulin level, intraperitoneal glucose tolerance test (IPGTT), food intake, water consumption, and urine output were evaluated. The expression of insulin signaling pathway-related proteins was evaluated by western blotting. Hematoxylin and eosin...

Data from: Re-association of an invasive plant with its specialist herbivore provides a test of the Shifting Defence Hypothesis

Jinlong Wan, Bei Huang, Hua Yu & Shao-Lin Peng
1. The shifting defence hypothesis (SDH) predicts that after invasive plants are introduced to new ranges, they will evolve reduced resistance to specialist herbivores and increased resistance to generalist herbivores because they can escape from specialists but are still attacked by generalists in their non-native ranges. For this to be true, the subsequent introduction of native specialist herbivores should reverse the above evolutionary processes, but evidence collected so far is scarce. 2. Here, we address...

Data from: Ecological stasis in Spinicaudata (Crustacea, Branchiopoda)? Early Cretaceous clam shrimp of the Yixian Formation of north‐east China occupied a broader realized ecological niche than extant members of the group

Manja Hethke, Franz T. Fürsich, Baoyu Jiang, Bo Wang, Patrick Chellouche & Stephen C. Weeks
The palaeoecology of Spinicaudata, the dominant group of benthic invertebrates in many pre-Cenozoic freshwater environments, remains poorly understood. In analogy with extant taxa, it has been oversimplified and often reduced to shallow, temporary environments characterised by few trophic levels, implying ecological stasis from the Devonian to the Recent. We excavated 43 horizons of the Lower Cretaceous Yixian Formation (Anjiagou and Hengdaozi beds) to evaluate whether spinicaudatan ecology can be simplified to such an extent. Sedimentological...
