Phenotypic plasticity in plant defense across life stages: inducibility, transgenerational induction, and transgenerational priming in wild radish

Mar Sobral & Rodolfo Dirzo
As they develop, many plants deploy shifts in anti-herbivore defense allocation due to changing costs and benefits of their defensive traits. Plant defenses are known to be primed or directly induced by herbivore damage within generations, and across generations by long-lasting epigenetic mechanisms. However, little is known about the ontogenetic trajectories of epigenetically inducible defensive traits across generations and their consequences. To help fill this knowledge gap, we conducted a multigenerational experiment to determine whether...

Las formas reducidas de facĕre en el noroeste de la península ibérica Convergencia y divergencia geolingüísticas

Francisco Dubert-García
El asturleonés, el gallego y algunos dialectos del portugués del noreste se caracterizan por presentar un radical fa- en la 2SG, 3SG y 3PL del presente de indicativo y en la 2SG del imperativo del verbo facer/fazer/faer/fer. Estas formas aparecen también en las mismas personas del presente de indicativo del aragonés y del catalán (aunque no en la 2SG de su imperativo). En este trabajo se defiende que todas estas formas tienen un origen común...

Mitochondrial genome sequencing of marine leukemias reveals cancer contagion between clam species in the Seas of Southern Europe

Daniel Garcia-Souto, Seila Diaz-Costas, Alicia L Bruzos, Sara Rocha, Camila F Roman-Lewis, Juana Alonso, Rosana Rodriguez, Rodríguez-Castro Jorge, Antonio Villanueva, Luis Silva, Jose Maria Valencia, Giovanni Annona, Andrea Tarallo, Fernando Ricardo, Ana Bratos-Cetinic, David Posada, Juan Jose Pasantes & Jose MC Tubio
Clonally transmissible cancers are tumour lineages that are transmitted between individuals via the transfer of living cancer cells. In marine bivalves, leukemia-like transmissible cancers, called hemic neoplasias, have demonstrated the ability to infect individuals from different species. We performed whole-genome sequencing in eight V. verrucosa clams that were diagnosed with hemic neoplasia, from two sampling points located more than 1,000 nautical miles away in the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea Coasts of Spain. Mitochondrial...

Genomic survey of edible cockle (Cerastoderma edule) in the Northeast Atlantic: a baseline for sustainable management of its wild resources

Paulino Martínez Portela, Manuel Vera, Francesco Maroso, Sophie Wilmes, Miguel Hermida, Andrés Blanco, Carlos Fernández, Emily Groves, Shelagh Malham, Carmen Bouza, Peter Robins & Paulino Martínez
Knowledge on how environmental factors shape the genome of marine species is crucial for sustainable management of fisheries and wild populations. The edible cockle (Cerastoderma edule) is a marine bivalve distributed along the Northeast Atlantic coast of Europe and is an important resource from both commercial and ecological perspectives. We performed a population genomics screening using 2b-RAD genotyping on 9,309 SNPs localised in the cockle's genome on a sample of 536 specimens pertaining to 14...

Specific Interactions in the Inclusion Complexes of Pyronines Y and B with β-Cyclodextrin

Belén Reija, Wajih Al-Soufi, Mercedes Novo & José Vázquez Tato
The aim of this work is to analyze the role of specific interactions in host−guest association processes. The formation of inclusion complexes between pyronines Y and B and β-cyclodextrin and the nature of the interactions involved have been studied using absorption, steady-state fluorescence, and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopies. The two pyronines form 1:1 complexes with β-cyclodextrin, with the association equilibrium constant being much higher in the case of pyronine B. Complexation causes a slight red shift...

Counterion Binding in Solutions of p-Sulfonatocalix[4]arene

Luis García-Río, Manuel Martín-Pastor & Nuno Basilio
23Na relaxation NMR measurements and self-diffusion coefficients for sodium cations and p-sulfonatocalix[n]arenes (SCn) were obtained to confirm that monovalent inorganic cations are complexed by SC4. In the absence of added salts and at neutral pH, the cavity of p-sulfonatocalix[4]arene (SC4) fully binds an Na+ counterion. Our results provide evidence that when investigating the complexation of inorganic cations by SC4 a competitive binding scheme must be considered if more than one cation is present in solution....
