Terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) data on tree crown morphology and neighbourhood competition from both Cuellar and Alto Tajo, Spain

Harry Owen, Emily Lines & William Flynn
1. Tree crown morphology is a key driver of forest dynamics, determining not only the competitiveness of an individual but also the competitive effect exerted on neighbouring trees. Multiple ecological theories, including Metabolic Scaling Theory (MST), predict crown morphology from first principles, but typically lack consideration of competition. The accurate quantification of crown morphology to test theoretical predictions, and the canopy interactions that could alter them, has historically been limited by the simplicity and associated...

Toxicological aspects of tobacco products on immune system

Sandra Farsky
Our research group investigates the inflammatory process in different aspects, from the endogenous control of the process, the effectiveness of molecules for therapy, the mechanisms of action of xenobiotics and the inflammatory microenvironment in tumor genesis. In this way, we acquired expertise, carried out national and international collaborations and set up an equipment park within the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at USP (FCF-USP), which has allowed us to contribute to the formation of a critical...

Interrogating discordance resolves relationships in the rapid radiation of Old World fruit bats (Chiroptera: Pteropodidae)

Nicolas Nesi, Stephen Rossiter, Michael McGowen, Georgia Tsagkogeorga, Burton Lim, Susan Tsang, Violaine Nicolas, Aude Lalis, Silke Riesle Sbarbaro, Sigit Wiantoro, Alan Hitch, Javier Juste, Corinna Pinzari, Frank Bonaccorso, Nancy Simmons, Annette Scanlon & Christopher Todd
The family Pteropodidae (Old World fruit bats) comprises >200 species distributed across the Old World tropics and subtropics. Most pteropodids feed on fruit, suggesting an early origin of frugivory, although several lineages have shifted to nectar-based diets. Pteropodids are of exceptional conservation concern with >50% of species considered threatened, yet the systematics of this group has long been debated, with uncertainty surrounding early splits attributed to an ancient rapid diversification. Resolving the relationships among the...

Usability of electronic health record systems in UK emergency departments

Ben Bloom
Background The large volume of patients, rapid staff turnover and high work pressure means that the usability of all systems within the Emergency Department (ED) is important. The transition to electronic health records (EHRs) has brought many benefits to emergency care but imposes a significant burden on staff to enter data. Poor usability has a direct consequence and opportunity cost in staff time and resources that could otherwise be employed in patient care. This research...

The Effect of Nitrate-Rich Beetroot Juice on Markers of Exercise-Induced Muscle Damage: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Human Intervention Trials

Louise Jones, Stephen J. Bailey, Samantha N. Rowland, Nehal Alsharif, Oliver M. Shannon & Tom Clifford
This systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials examined whether dietary nitrate supplementation attenuates exercise-induced muscle damage (EIMD) and is reported according to the PRISMA guidelines. Medline and SPORTDiscus databases were searched from inception to June 2020. Inclusion criteria were studies in adult humans consuming inorganic nitrate before and after exercise and that measured markers implicated in the etiology of EIMD (muscle function, muscle soreness, inflammation, myocellular protein efflux, oxidative stress, range of motion)...

Targeting the KRAS α4-α5 allosteric interface inhibits pancreatic cancer tumorigenesis

Imran Khan, Catherine MarElia-Bennet, Julia Lefler, Mariyam Zuberi, Eric Denbaum, Akiko Koide, Dean M. Connor, Ann-Marie Broome, Thierry Pécot, Cynthia Timmers, Michael C. Ostrowski, Shohei Koide & John P. O’Bryan
RAS is the most frequently mutated oncogene in human cancer with nearly ~20% of cancer patients possessing mutations in one of three RAS genes (K, N or HRAS). However, KRAS is mutated in nearly 90% of pancreatic ductal carcinomas (PDAC). Although pharmacological inhibition of RAS has been challenging, KRAS(G12C)-specific inhibitors have recently entered the clinic. While KRAS(G12C) is frequently expressed in lung cancers, it is rare in PDAC. Thus, more broadly efficacious RAS inhibitors are...

Biosynthesized CuO as a Green and Efficient Nanophotocatalyst in the Solvent-Free Synthesis of Some Chromeno[4, 3-b]Chromenes. Studying anti- Gastric Cancer Activity

Juan Liu, Jun Wang, Effat Esmaeili, Nasrin Mollania, Hengameh Atharifar, Maryam Keywanlu & Reza Tayebee
Gastric cancer is a foremost one among many regular carcinoma cases globally and most of the enhanced treatments could not significantly decrease the mortality range of this cancer. The current work is planned to develop a new rote for the synthesis of a nanophotocatalyst and substituted chromenones that are effective drugs against gastric cancer. Thus, CuO as a new heterogeneous green nanophotocatalyst is biosynthesized from Cressa leaf extract and the prepared nanophotocatalyst is applied in...

Warming of aquatic ecosystems disrupts aquatic-terrestrial linkages in the tropics

Liam Nash, Pablo Antiqueira, Gustavo Romero, Paula De Omena & Pavel Kratina
Aquatic ecosystems are tightly linked to terrestrial ecosystems by exchanges of resources, which influence species interactions, community dynamics and functioning in both ecosystem types. However, our understanding of how this coupling responds to climate warming is restricted to temperate, boreal, and arctic regions, with limited knowledge from tropical ecosystems. We investigated how warming aquatic ecosystems impacts cross-ecosystem exchanges in the tropics, through the export of aquatic resources into the terrestrial environment and the breakdown of...

Strong sexual selection fails to protect against inbreeding-driven extinction in a moth

Jonathan Parrett, Veroncia Ghobert, Fenn Cullen & Robert Knell
Sexual selection is predicted to influence population persistence because skew in male reproductive success may facilitate the purging of mutation load. We manipulated the strength of sexual selection in populations of Indian meal moths, Plodia interpunctella, by biasing adult sex ratios to be either male- or female-biased, leading to strong and weak sexual selection in males, respectively. After between 19 and 22 generations of experimental evolution we examined whether mutation load differed between these populations...

Categorizing what patients with psychosis say in clinical interactions: the development of a framework informed by theory of mind, metacognition and cognitive behavioral theory

Alessia Zangrilli, Maev Conneely, Rosemarie McCabe, Federica Catalfio & Stefan Priebe
Many patients with psychosis are socially isolated and struggle to maintain or establish satisfying social relationships. This has been explained as resulting from a reduced ability to understand one’s own mind, others’ minds, and how these interact. This understanding of one’s own and others’ minds is the foundation of many different theories and models from developmental to cognitive psychiatry. Increasing this ability is the goal of many therapeutic approaches and may facilitate establishing a positive...
