Data from: Targeted genome-wide SNP genotyping in feral horses using non-invasive fecal swabs

Stefan Gavriliuc, Salman Reza, Chanwoori Jeong, Philip McLoughlin & Jocelyn Poissant
The development of high-throughput sequencing has prompted a transition in wildlife genetics from using microsatellites toward sets of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs). However, genotyping large numbers of targeted SNPs using non-invasive samples remains challenging due to relatively large DNA input requirements. Recently, target enrichment has emerged as a promising approach requiring little template DNA. We assessed the efficacy of Tecan Genomics’ Allegro Targeted Genotyping (ATG) for generating genome-wide SNP data in feral horses using DNA...

Data from: The genetic basis of variation in sexual aggression: evolution versus social plasticity

Andrew Scott, Janice Yan, Carling Baxter, Ian Dworkin & Reuven Dukas
Male sexual aggression towards females is a form of sexual conflict that can result in increased fitness for males through forced copulations or coercive matings at the cost of female lifetime fitness. We used male fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) as a model system to uncover the genomic contributions to variation in forced copulation, both due to standing variation in a wild population, and due to plastic changes associated with variation in social experience. We used...

P. Moore, Steven L. Voelker, William R. L. Anderegg & Frederick C. Meinzer
Uncertainties surrounding tree carbon allocation to growth are a major limitation to projections of forest carbon sequestration and response to climate change. The prevalence and extent to which carbon assimilation (source) or cambial activity (sink) mediate wood production are fundamentally important and remain elusive. We quantified source-sink relations across biomes by combining eddy-covariance gross primary production with extensive on-site and regional tree ring observations. We found widespread temporal decoupling between carbon assimilation and tree growth,...

Platelet–Lymphocyte Ratio, Neutrophil–Lymphocyte Ratio and Their Dynamic Changes with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: A Cohort Study in China

Canjia Zhang, Huan Chen, Shangxin Cui, Yeli Lin, Yongqiang Liang, Ping Zhao, Changyi Wang, Shan Xu, Xiaolin Peng, Hongen Chen, Li Wang, Dan Zhao, Ming Zhang, Dongsheng Hu, Yanmei Lou & Fulan Hu
This study aimed at investigating the relationships between Platelet-Lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and Neutrophil–Lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and their dynamic changes (∆PLR, ∆NLR) with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in a Chinese cohort study. This study recruited 41,439 individuals who were diagnosed without T2DM at first health examination and completed at least one follow-up. The relationships between NLR, PLR, ∆PLR, ∆NLR and T2DM risk were analyzed using the Cox regression model with corresponding Hazard Ratios (HRs) and...

Abstract In the frame of radiotherapy treatment of cancer, radioresistance remains a major issue that still needs solutions to be overcome. To effectively improve the radiosensitivity of tumors and reduce the damage of radiation to neighboring normal tissues, radiosensitizers have been given increasing attention in recent years. As nanoparticles based on the metal element gadolinium, AGuIX nanoparticles have been shown to increase the radiosensitivity of cancers. Although it is a rare nanomaterial that has entered...

Feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary effectiveness of the adapted Namaste Care program delivered by caregivers of community-dwelling older persons with moderate to advanced dementia: a mixed methods feasibility study

Marie-Lee Yous, Jenny Ploeg, Sharon Kaasalainen, Carrie McAiney & Kathryn Fisher
Abstract Background Caregivers have considerable responsibilities in supporting persons in advanced stages of dementia, however they receive little education. Namaste Care is a multisensory program originally designed to be delivered by healthcare providers in long-term care homes for persons with advanced dementia. The program has not yet been adapted and evaluated for use by caregivers of persons with moderate to advanced dementia living at home. The purpose of this feasibility study is to determine the...

Abstract Background The prevalence of mental illness among medical students is high. A gap remains on what knowledge should be given to improve the attitudes and perceptions towards mental health. Despite the vast body of literature globally, no study has been conducted in Uganda to assess the levels of knowledge, attitude, and perception among medical students in Uganda. Objective To determine the level of knowledge, attitude, and perception and their associated factors among medical students...

Optimising a person-centred approach to stopping medicines in older people with multimorbidity and polypharmacy using the DExTruS framework: a realist review

Amadea Turk, Geoffrey Wong, Kamal R. Mahtani, Michelle Madden, Ruaraidh Hill, Ed Ranson, Emma Wallace, Janet Krska, Dee Mangin, Richard Byng, Daniel Lasserson & Joanne Reeve
Abstract Background Tackling problematic polypharmacy requires tailoring the use of medicines to individual circumstances and may involve the process of deprescribing. Deprescribing can cause anxiety and concern for clinicians and patients. Tailoring medication decisions often entails beyond protocol decision-making, a complex process involving emotional and cognitive work for healthcare professionals and patients. We undertook realist review to highlight and understand the interactions between different factors involved in deprescribing and to develop a final programme theory...

The role of proteoglycan form of DMP1 in cranial repair

Yang Liu, Pingping Niu, Mengqi Zhou & Hui Xue
Abstract Background The cranial region is a complex set of blood vessels, cartilage, nerves and soft tissues. The reconstruction of cranial defects caused by trauma, congenital defects and surgical procedures presents clinical challenges. Our previous data showed that deficiency of the proteoglycan (PG) form of dentin matrix protein 1 (DMP1-PG) could lead to abnormal cranial development. In addition, DMP1-PG was highly expressed in the cranial defect areas. The present study aimed to investigate the potential...

Construction and yield optimization of a cinnamylamine biosynthesis route in Escherichia coli

Qi Wang, Linlin Ma, Zhiguo Wang, Quan Chen, Qian Wang & Qingsheng Qi
Abstract Background With the development of metabolic engineering and synthetic biology, the biosynthesis of aromatic compounds has attracted much attention. Cinnamylamine is an aromatic compound derived from l-phenylalanine, which is used in the synthesis of biologically active molecules, including drugs, and energetic materials. Cinnamylamine has been mainly synthesized by chemical methods to date, and few reports have focused on the biosynthesis of cinnamylamine. Therefore, it is desirable to establish an efficient biosynthesis method for cinnamylamine....

Qi Wang, Ying Zhu, Shitong Xie, Mohammad Golam Kibria, Qiangqiang Guo, Ahmed Atef Belal, Yanfei Li, Jingyi Zhang, Yaolong Chen, Holger J. Schünemann, Michael G. Wilson, Kehu Yang & John N. Lavis
Abstract Background As systematically developed statements regarding possible courses of action, health system guidance (HSG) can assist with making decisions about addressing problems or achieving goals in health systems. However, there are conceptual and methodological challenges in HSG implementation due to the complexity of health-system policy-making, the diversity of available evidence and vast differences in contexts. To address these gaps, we aim to develop a theoretical framework for supporting HSG implementation as part of a...
