Sound production in female Trichopsis schalleri (Labyrinth fishes): comparison to males and evolutionary considerations

Friedrich Ladich & Günter Schleinzer
Croaking gouramis (genus Trichopsis, Anabantoidei) generate series of two-pulsed bursts (croaks) during agonistic interactions. Sex-specific differences are minor in T. vittata which raises the question whether sexes differ in the other two species. The current study analyses sounds recorded in female T. schalleri, compares the sound characteristics to those of males investigated earlier and correlates these characteristics to female body size. Sex-specific differences were found in three out of six sound characteristics. In females, sounds...

Paleo-Seismology

Yu Geng
Most convergent plate boundaries create great earthquakes. The Cascadia subduction zone is unusual for that no plate boundary earthquakes occured within the last 200 years. As supported by a variety of innovative research, regional seismic hazard assessments recently consider the possibility that large earthquakes exist but the frequency of their occurrences is very low. The paper summarizes the geological evidence for plate boundary earthquakes and the geophysical evidence for elastic strain accumulation in Cascadia. Some...

Modulatory role of rutin on 2,5-hexanedione-induced chromosomal and DNA damage in rats: validation of computational predictions

Aliyu Muhammad, David Ebuka Arthur, Sanusi Babangida, Ochuko L. Erukainure, Ibrahim Malami, Hadiza Sani, Aliyu Waziri Abdulhamid, Idayat Omoyemi Ajiboye, Ahmed Ariyo Saka, Nafisa Muhammed Hamza, Suleiman Asema, Zaharaddeen Muhammad Ado & Taibat Ishaq Musa
The aim of this study was to evaluate the potentials of rutin on 2,5-hexanedione-induced toxicities. Two successive phases were involved using in silico and in vivo approaches. The in silico was adopted for potential oral toxicity and docking. The in vivo was carried-out in two stages for two weeks; the ameliorative (stage 1, first week), preventive, and curative studies (stage 2, extended to second week). In stage 1, rats were divided into four groups of...

A negative feedback regulation of MTORC1 activity by the lysosomal Ca2+ channel MCOLN1 (mucolipin 1) using a CALM (calmodulin)-dependent mechanism

Xue Sun, Yiming Yang, Xi Zoë Zhong, Qi Cao, Xin-Hong Zhu, Xiaojuan Zhu & Xian-Ping Dong
Macroautophagy/autophagy is an evolutionarily conserved pathway that is required for cellular homeostasis, growth and survival. The lysosome plays an essential role in autophagy regulation. For example, the activity of MTORC1, a master regulator of autophagy, is regulated by nutrients within the lysosome. Starvation inhibits MTORC1 causing autophagy induction. Given that MTORC1 is critical for protein synthesis and cellular homeostasis, a feedback regulatory mechanism must exist to restore MTORC1 during starvation. However, the molecular mechanism underlying...

BAM! POW! Why macroecology works and how it can be useful to disease ecology

Erica Newman
A 5-minute "Ignite" talk given at the Ecological Society of America conference in 2018, in the Frontiers and Limits in Disease Macroecology session.
Macroecologists have long sought to explain and predict patterns of biodiversity. The field’s scope has increased from predicting species richness to abundances and metabolic distributions. In attempting to unite these patterns, modern forms of macroecology embrace the complex nature of information underlying these patterns, and work by characterizing the information entropy of the...
