Data from: Female ground tits prefer relatives as extra-pair partners: driven by kin-selection?

Chen Wang & Xin Lu
Socially monogamous female birds routinely mate with males outside the pair bond. Three alternative hypotheses consider genetic benefits as the major driver behind the female strategy. The inbreeding avoidance hypothesis predicts that females paired with closely related males should seek copulations with distantly related extra-pair partners to avoid fitness loss from inbreeding depression; the outbreeding avoidance hypothesis predicts the opposite; the kin-selection hypothesis suggests that regardless of social mate relatedness, females should give related males...

Data from: Loss of sweet taste despite the conservation of sweet receptor genes in insectivorous bats

Hengwu Jiao, Huan-Wang Xie & Huabin Zhao
The evolution of taste perception is usually associated with the ecology and dietary changes of organisms. However, mismatches between feeding ecology and taste receptor evolution have been identified in some vertebrate animals. One example is the sweet taste receptor gene Tas1r2. Previous analysis of partial sequences has revealed that Tas1r2 has undergone equally strong purifying selection between insectivorous and frugivorous bats. To test whether the sweet taste function is also important in bats with contrasting...

Data from: Forward genetic screening for regulators involved in cholesterol synthesis using validation-based insertional mutagenesis

Wei Jiang, Jing-Jie Tang, Hong-Hua Miao, Yu-Xiu Qu, Jie Qin, Jie Xu, Jinbo Yang, Bo-Liang Li & Bao-Liang Song
Somatic cell genetics is a powerful approach for unraveling the regulatory mechanism of cholesterol metabolism. However, it is difficult to identify the mutant gene(s) due to cells are usually mutagenized chemically or physically. To identify important genes controlling cholesterol biosynthesis, an unbiased forward genetics approach named validation-based insertional mutagenesis (VBIM) system was used to isolate and characterize the 25-hydroxycholesterol (25-HC)-resistant and SR-12813-resisitant mutants. Here we report that five mutant cell lines were isolated. Among which,...

Data from: The differential contributions of herkogamy and dichogamy as mechanisms of avoiding self-interference in four self-incompatible Epimedium species

Xiao-Xia Li, Yuan Zou, Chang-Long Xiao, Robert W. Gituru, You-Hao Guo, Chun-Feng Yang, X.-X. Li, C.-L. Xiao, Y.-H. Guo & C.-F. Yang
Self-interference is one of the most important selective forces in shaping floral evolution. Herkogamy and dichogamy both can achieve reductions in the extent of self-interference, but they may have different roles in minimizing self-interference in a single species. We used four self-incompatible Epimedium species to explore the roles of herkogamy and dichogamy in avoiding self-interference and to test the hypothesis that herkogamy and dichogamy may be separated and become selected preferentially in the taxa. Two...

Data from: Feeding the enemy: loss of nectar and nectaries to herbivores reduces tepal damage and increases pollinator attraction in Iris bulleyana

Ya-Ru Zhu, Min Yang, Jana C. Vamosi, W. Scott Armbruster, Tao Wan & Yan-Bing Gong
Floral nectar usually functions as a pollinator reward, yet it may also attract herbivores. However, the effects of herbivore consumption of nectar or nectaries on pollination have rarely been tested. We investigated Iris bulleyana, an alpine plant that has showy tepals and abundant nectar, in the Hengduan Mountains of SW China. In this region, flowers are visited mainly by pollen-collecting pollinators and nectarivorous herbivores. We tested the hypothesis that, in I. bulleyana, sacrificing nectar and...

Enhance the Efficiency of Graphene-based THz Modulator by Optimizing the Brewster Angle

Xingyue Li, zhaohui zhang, Xiaoyan Zhao, Tianyao Zhang, Luqi Tao, Zhengyong Huang, Ying Li, Xianhao Wu, Lu Yin & Yuan Yuan
The gate-controllable electronical property of graphene provides a possibility of active tuning property for THz modulator. However, the common modulation technology which only depends on voltage cannot solve the problem of power consumption limitation in communication applications. Here, we demonstrated a Brewster angle-controlled graphene-based THz modulator, which could achieve a relatively high modulation depth with low voltage. First, we explored the complex relationships among the Brewster angles, reflection coefficients and the conductivities of graphene. Then,...

Abstract Primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) is a type of central nervous system restricted non-Hodgkin lymphoma, whose histopathological diagnosis is majorly large B cell lymphoma. To provide specific, evidence-based recommendations for medical professionals and to promote more standardized, effective and safe treatment for patients with PCNSL, a panel of experts from the Chinese Neurosurgical Society of the Chinese Medical Association and the Society of Hematological Malignancies of the Chinese Anti-Cancer Association jointly developed an...

LAG3 blockade coordinates with microwave ablation to promote CD8+ T cell-mediated anti-tumor immunity

Dong Shao, Yaping Chen, Hao Huang, Yingting Liu, Junjun Chen, Dawei Zhu, Xiao Zheng, Lujun Chen & Jingting Jiang
Abstract Background The immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) combined with other therapeutic strategies have shown exciting results in various malignancies, and ICIs have now become the gold standard for current cancer treatment. In several preclinical and clinical investigations, ablation coupled with immunotherapy has proved to be quite effective. Our previous studies have shown that ablation coupled with ICI is a potential anti-cancer regimen for colorectal cancer liver metastases (CRLM). Furthermore, we have reported that following microwave...
