Data from: Effectiveness of vole control by owls in apple orchards

Chie Murano, Satoe Kasahara, Seiya Kudo, Aya Inada, Sho Sato, Kana Watanabe & Nobuyuki Azuma
1. Biological pest control is gaining greater acceptance as an important part of integrated pest management for sustainable agriculture. However, knowledge regarding biological control of rodent pests is limited, and its effectiveness in temperate areas has not been quantified. In traditional Japanese apple orchards, the Ural owl Strix uralensis breeds in tree hollows and preys on the Japanese field vole Microtus montebelli, a native pest species that can harm fruit production. In this study, we...

Prevalence and influence of hypouricemia on cardiovascular diseases in patients with rheumatoid arthritis

Yao-Wei Zou, Qian-Hua Li, Ying-Ying Zhu, Jie Pan, Jing-Wei Gao, Jian-Zi Lin, Tao Wu, Qian Zhang, Hu-Wei Zheng, Ying-Qian Mo, Jian-Da Ma & Lie Dai
Abstract Background Serum uric acid (SUA) acts as an antioxidant and abnormally low SUA may raise the risk of developing atherosclerotic disorders. There is a U-shaped association between SUA with cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) in general population. However, the prevalence of hypouricemia and its influence on CVDs in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) remains unclear. Methods This cross-sectional study collected clinical data from a Chinese RA cohort. Hypouricemia was defined as SUA ≤ 3.0 mg/dL, and hyperuricemia was...

Data from: Feminizing Wolbachia endosymbiont disrupts maternal sex chromosome inheritance in a butterfly species

Daisuke Kageyama, Mizuki Ohno, Tatsushi Sasaki, Atsuo Yoshido, Tatsuro Konagaya, Akiya Jouraku, Seigo Kuwazaki, Hiroyuki Kanamori, Yuichi Katayose, Satoko Narita, Mai Miyata, Markus Riegler & Ken Sahara
Wolbachia is a maternally inherited ubiquitous endosymbiotic bacterium of arthropods that displays a diverse repertoire of host reproductive manipulations. For the first time, we demonstrate that Wolbachia manipulates sex chromosome inheritance in a sexually reproducing insect. Eurema mandarina butterfly females on Tanegashima Island, Japan, are infected with the wFem Wolbachia strain and produce all-female offspring, while antibiotic treatment results in male offspring. Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) revealed that wFem-positive and wFem-negative females have Z0...

Data from: Tissue-specific changes in apoplastic proteins and cell wall structure during cold acclimation of winter wheat crowns

Ian R. Willick, Daisuke Takahashi, D. Brian Fowler, Matsuo Uemura & Karen K. Tanino
The wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) crown is the critical organ of low temperature stress survival over winter. In cold-acclimated crowns, ice formation in the apoplast causes severe tissue disruption as it grows at the expense of intracellular water. While previous crown studies have shown the vascular transition zone (VTZ) to have a higher freezing sensitivity than the shoot apical meristem (SAM), the mechanism behind the differential freezing response is not fully understood. Cooling cold-acclimated crowns...

Development of novel DNA marker for species discrimination of Fasciola flukes based on the fatty acid binding protein type I gene

Emi Okamoto, Michiyo Tashiro, Pedro Ortiz, Uday Kumar Mohanta, Cristian Hobán, César A. Murga-Moreno, José M. Angulo-Tisoc & Madoka Ichikawa-Seki
Abstract Background Multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) for nuclear phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase (pepck) and polymerase delta (pold), respectively, have been used to differentiate Fasciola hepatica, F. gigantica, and hybrid Fasciola flukes. However, discrimination errors have been reported in both methods. This study aimed to develop a multiplex PCR based on a novel nuclear marker, the fatty acid binding protein type I (FABP) type I gene. Methods Nucleotide sequence variations of...

Ambient PM2.5 exposure causes cellular senescence via DNA damage, micronuclei formation, and cGAS activation

Tao Wu, Shengmin Xu, Biao Chen, Lingzhi Bao, Jie Ma, Wei Han, An Xu, Kwan Ngok Yu, Lijun Wu & Shaopeng Chen
Ambient PM2.5 is one of the environmental risk factors and was correlated with senescence-related diseases based on the epidemiologic investigation. However, little is known about senescence induced by PM2.5 as well as the underlying mechanisms. In this study, we demonstrated that PM2.5 exposure aggravated cellular senescence in vivo and in vitro, and disrupted micronuclei (MN) played a vital role in this process. Our results suggested that the nuclear envelope (NE) of PM2.5-induced MN was ruptured....

Data from: Facultative use of thelytokous parthenogenesis for queen production in the polyandrous ant Cataglyphis cursor

Claudie Doums, Adam L. Cronin, Camille Ruel, Pierre Fédérici, Claudy Haussy, Claire Tirard & Thibaud Monnin
The evolutionary paradox of sex remains one of the major debates in evolutionary biology. The study of species capable of both sexual and asexual reproduction can elucidate factors important in the evolution of sex. One such species is the ant Cataglyphis cursor, where the queen maximises the transmission of her genes by producing new queens (gynes) asexually while simultaneously maintaining a genetically diverse workforce via the sexual production of workers. We show that the queen...

Extracellular vesicles isolated from hyperuricemia patients might aggravate airway inflammation of COPD via senescence-associated pathway

Xuanqi Liu, Zheng Li, Yang Zheng, Wenhao Wang, Peiqing He, Kangwei Guan, Tao Wu, Xiaojun Wang & Xuelin Zhang
Abstract Backgrounds Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a major health issue resulting in significant mortality worldwide. Due to the high heterogeneity and unclear pathogenesis, the management and therapy of COPD are still challenging until now. Elevated serum uric acid(SUA) levels seem to be associated with the inflammatory level in patients with COPD. However, the underlying mechanism is not yet clearly established. In the current research, we aim to elucidate the effect of high SUA...

Data from: A FISH-based chromosome map for the European corn borer yields insights into ancient chromosomal fusions in the silkworm

Yuji Yasukochi, Mizuki Ohno, Fukashi Shibata, Akiya Jouraku, Ryo Nakano, Yukio Ishikawa & Ken Sahara
A significant feature of the genomes of Lepidoptera, butterflies and moths, is the high conservation of chromosome organization. Recent remarkable progress in genome sequencing of Lepidoptera has revealed that syntenic gene order is extensively conserved across phylogenetically distant species. The ancestral karyotype of Lepidoptera is thought to be n = 31; however, that of the most well studied moth, Bombyx mori, is n = 28, and diverse studies suggest that three chromosomal fusion events occurred...

Global food demand is on the rise and serious questions remain about whether supply can increase sustainably. Land-based expansion is possible, but may exacerbate climate change and biodiversity loss and compromise the delivery of other ecosystem services. As food from the sea represents only 17% of current edible meat production, we ask: How much food can we expect the ocean to sustainably produce by 2050? We examine the main food-producing sectors in the ocean—wild fisheries,...

Background: The gene mutation of isocitrate dehydrogenase-1 (IDH1) is commonly found in LGG and some GBM patients and usually carries tumor protein 53 (TP53) mutations. However, the underlying mechanisms on both mutations of glioma patients in IDH1 and TP53 are still unclear. Aim: To find the potential target markers in GBM and LGG patients with IDH1 and TP53 mutation.Method: A total of 1122 glioma patients from The Cancer Genome Atlas were enrolled and divided as...

Data from: The fate of W chromosomes in hybrids between wild silkmoths, Samia cynthia ssp.: no role in sex determination and reproduction

Atsuo Yoshido, Frantisek Marec & Ken Sahara
Moths and butterflies (Lepidoptera) have sex chromosome systems with female heterogamety (WZ/ZZ or derived variants). The maternally inherited W chromosome is known to determine female sex in the silkworm, Bombyx mori. However, little is known about the role of W chromosome in other lepidopteran species. Here we describe two forms of the W chromosome, W and neo-W, that are transmitted to both sexes in offspring of hybrids from reciprocal crosses between subspecies of wild silkmoths,...
