Age, tissue, genotype and virus infection regulate Wolbachia levels in Drosophila

Rupinder Kaur, Julien Martinez, Omar Rota-Stabelli, Frank Jiggins & Wolfgang Miller
The bacterial symbiont Wolbachia can protect insects against viral pathogens, and the varying levels of antiviral protection are correlated with the endosymbiont load within the insects. To understand why Wolbachia strains differ in their antiviral effects, we investigated the factors controlling Wolbachia density in five closely related strains in their natural Drosophila hosts. We found that Wolbachia density varied greatly across different tissues and between flies of different ages, and these effects depended on the...

Researchers and Their Data

Bruno Bauer, Andreas Ferus, Juan Gorraiz, Veronika Gründhammer, Christian Gumpenberger, Nikolaus Maly, Johannes Michael Mühlegger, José Luis Preza, Barbara Sánchez Solís, Nora Schmidt & Christian Steineder
This report provides an overview of the Austria-wide survey for research data, which was carried out within the framework of the project e-Infrastructures Austria at the beginning of 2015. This survey was directed at the scientific and artistic-scientific personnel of 20 public universities and three extramural research institutions in Austria.

Erfassung von Exlibris im Kontext des Österreichischen Bibliothekenverbundes. Präsentation einer Lösung für die Erfassung und Anzeige exemplarspezifischer Informationen

Marian Miehl & Harald Albrecht
An den beiden Zweigbibliotheken der Universitätsbibliothek der Medizinischen Universität Wien: der ZB für Geschichte der Medizin und der ZB für Zahnmedizin gibt es an die 300 in den Büchern (in situ) befindliche Exlibris. Im Winter 2018/19 wurde ein Projekt gestartet, in dessen Rahmen die Exlibris digitalisiert, erschlossen, mit den Exemplaren verknüpft und als virtuelle Sammlung angezeigt werden sollten.

Supplement to: Hippocampal neurochemical profile and glucose transport kinetics in patients with type 1 diabetes

Petr Bednařík, Pierre Gilles Henry, Ameer Khowaja, Nathan Rubin, Anjali Kumar, Dinesh Deelchand, Lynn Eberly, Elizabeth Seaquist, Gülin Öz & Moheet Amir
Context Longstanding type 1 diabetes (T1D) may lead to alterations in hippocampal neurochemical profile. Upregulation of hippocampal glucose transport as a result of recurrent exposure to hypoglycemia may preserve cognitive function during future hypoglycemia in subjects with T1D and impaired awareness of hypoglycemia (IAH). The effect of T1D on hippocampal neurochemical profile and glucose transport is unknown. Objective To test the hypothesis that hippocampal neurochemical composition is altered in T1D and glucose transport is upregulated...

Universitätsbibliotheken der öffentlichen Universitäten in Österreich – unverzichtbare Partner für Forschung und Lehre? Ergebnisse einer Analyse von Entwicklungsplänen, Leistungsvereinbarungen und Wissensbilanzen 2004 bis 2019

Bruno Bauer
Mit 1. Jänner 2004 ist das Bundesgesetz über die Organisation der Universitäten und ihre Studien (Universitätsgesetz – UG 2002) in Kraft getreten, das die öffentlichen Universitäten in Österreich in die Vollrechtsfähigkeit entlassen hat. Damit einher ging die Etablierung von Rahmenbedingungen für ein strategisches Management an den Universitäten. An die Stelle der bisher vom zuständigen Bundesministerium gepflegten Verordnungskultur ist eine Vereinbarungskultur zwischen Universitäten und Bundesministerium getreten. Eine wesentliche Rolle kommt hierbei Entwicklungsplänen, Leistungsvereinbarungen und Wissensbilanzen zu....

Data from: An integrative phylogenomic approach to elucidate the evolutionary history and divergence times of Neuropterida (Insecta: Holometabola)

Peters, Alexander Donath, Lars Podsiadlowski, Christoph Mayer, Daniela Bartel, Alexander Böhm, Shanlin Liu, Paschalia Kapli, Carola Greve, James E. Jepson, Xingyue Liu, Xin Zhou, Horst Aspöck & Ulrike Aspöck
Background The latest advancements in DNA sequencing technologies have facilitated the resolution of the phylogeny of insects, yet parts of the tree of Holometabola remain unresolved. The phylogeny of Neuropterida has been extensively studied, but no strong consensus exists concerning the phylogenetic relationships within the order Neuroptera, and the timeline of diversification of thelineages of Neuropterida. Here, we assembled a novel transcriptomic dataset to address previously unresolved issues in the phylogeny of Neuropterida and to...

Data from: The genetic landscape of axonal neuropathies in the middle aged and elderly: focus on MME (supplementary information)

Michaela Auer-Grumbach
OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that monogenic neuropathies such as Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) contribute to frequent but often unexplained neuropathies in the elderly, we performed genetic analysis of 230 patients with unexplained axonal neuropathies and disease onset >35 years. METHODS: We recruited patients, collected clinical data and conducted whole-exome sequencing (WES, n=126) and MME single-gene sequencing (n=104). We further queried WES repositories for MME variants and measured blood levels of the MME-encoded protein neprilysin. RESULTS:...

Data from: Reconfiguration of functional brain networks and metabolic cost converge during task performance

Andreas Hahn, Michael Breakspear, Lucas Rischka, Wolfgang Wadsak, Godber Godbersen, Verena Pichler, Paul Michenthaler, Thomas Vanicek, Marcus Hacker, Siegfried Kasper, Rupert Lanzenberger & Luca Cocchi
The ability to solve cognitive tasks depends upon adaptive changes in the organization of whole-brain functional networks. However, the link between task-induced network reconfigurations and their underlying energy demands is poorly understood. We address this by multimodal network analyses integrating functional and molecular neuroimaging acquired concurrently during a complex cognitive task. Task engagement elicited a marked increase in the association between glucose consumption and functional brain network reorganization. This convergence between metabolic and neural processes...
