Long non-coding RNA PCAT1 drives clear cell renal cell carcinoma by upregulating YAP via sponging miR-656 and miR-539

Rui Wang, Bin Zheng, Hongyan Liu & Xiuxian Wan
Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is the most common RCC subtype with high metastasis, poor prognosis and conventional chemotherapy resistance. Prostate cancer associated transcript 1 (PCAT1) is an important lncRNA that was reported to be involved in cell proliferation, migration and invasion of several types of cancer cells. However, its role in ccRCC is still undetermined. This study found that PCAT1 levels were elevated in ccRCC tumors as well as several ccRCC cells, and...

Environmental variation and biotic interactions limit adaptation at ecological margins: lessons from rainforest Drosophila and European butterflies

Eleanor K. O'Brien, Greg M. Walter & Jon Bridle
Models of local adaptation to spatially varying selection predict that maximum rates of evolution are determined by the interaction between increased adaptive potential owing to increased genetic variation, and the cost genetic variation brings by reducing population fitness. We discuss existing and new results from our laboratory assays and field transplants of rainforest Drosophila and UK butterflies along environmental gradients, which try to test these predictions in natural populations. Our data suggest that: (i) local...

Bronze strigil

Centre for Ancient Cultures Museum
Strigils are tools, mainly in hammered bronze, that were essential to the care of the skin in Ancient Greece and Rome: they were used to scrape dirt and perspiration from the body after an application of perfumed olive oil. These skin care procedures are commonly represented on vases and grave steles, showing soldiers, athletes following the routine after bathing or exercising, equipped with a strigil, an aryballos (flask for perfumed oil) and a sponge. Some...

Mycenaean globular squat stirrup-jar

Centre for Ancient Cultures Museum

The stirrup jar, also known as a “false-neck amphora”, is one of the most common Mycenaean pottery forms, commonly found in tombs and used to contain liquids such as oil or wine; it was a popular vessel, mass produced and exported from Cyprus to South Italy. It takes its name from the presence of a pouring spout and a false neck at the centre of the terracotta vessel joined to the shoulders by handles...

Gnathian Epichysis for pouring perfumed oil and other expensive liquids. Named after the ancient city of Gnathia in Southern Italy (region of Apulia), Gnathian ware vessels were painted in a variety of colours and were characteristic of the late 4th century BCE pottery production in Southern Italy, although also extensively traded to the rest of the Mediterranean.

Assessing the thermal performance of buildings at the construction stage using thermography. Development and evaluation of a testing approach in the context of new housing in Wales

Tim Taylor
At present there are concerns that new housing in the UK under-performs in terms of energy-efficiency. In research studies where the thermal performance of the building fabric has been measured, post-construction, significant gaps between design predictions and the as-built performance of new housing have been found. This thesis is concerned with how thermography may be used to assess the thermal performance of new housing during the construction process. The practical utility of this testing approach,...

A scoping review of systems approaches for increasing physical activity in populations

Tracy Nau, Adrian Bauman, Ben J. Smith & William Bellew
Abstract Introduction The past decade has increasingly seen systems approaches as a featured theme in public health studies and policy documents. This trend is evident in the area of physical activity, which is a significant global health risk factor that is addressed in WHO’s Global Action Plan on Physical Activity. We undertook a comprehensive scoping review to characterize the application of systems approaches to physical activity, to develop a typology of the objectives, themes and...
