Supplementary material from \"Symbiont specificity differs among green hydra strains\"

Ryo Miyokawa, Maki Hanada, Yumiko Togawa, Taichi Q. Itoh, Yoshitaka Kobayakawa & Junko Kusumi
The symbiotic hydra Hydra viridissima has a stable symbiotic relationship with the green alga Chlorella. This hydra appears to cospeciate with the symbiotic alga, and some strains are known to have strain-specific host/symbiont combinations. To investigate the mechanism of the specificity between host and symbiont, we explored the effect of the removal or exchange of symbionts in two distantly related H. viridissima strains (K10 and M9). In the K10 strain, severe morphological and behavioural changes...

Quantitative analysis of transcriptome dynamics provides novel insights into developmental state transitions

Kristin Johnson, Simon Freedman, Rosemary Braun & Carole LaBonne
Abstract Background During embryogenesis, the developmental potential of initially pluripotent cells becomes progressively restricted as they transit to lineage restricted states. The pluripotent cells of Xenopus blastula-stage embryos are an ideal system in which to study cell state transitions during developmental decision-making, as gene expression dynamics can be followed at high temporal resolution. Results Here we use transcriptomics to interrogate the process by which pluripotent cells transit to four different lineage-restricted states: neural progenitors, epidermis,...

Emergency versus delayed hepatectomy following transarterial embolization in spontaneously ruptured hepatocellular carcinoma survivors: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Wei Zhang, Zhangkan Huang & Xu Che
Abstract Background Spontaneous rupture is a life-threatening complication of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Recent trends in surgical treatments avoid emergency hepatectomy (EH) and favor emergency transarterial embolization (TAE) followed by delayed hepatectomy (DH). Still, there is debate on which is the better treatment option and whether delaying hepatectomy increases peritoneal metastasis. Aim To provide evidence-based references for the optimal management of patients with spontaneously ruptured HCC by comparing the outcomes of EH and DH. Methods Literature...

Radial Bias Alters Perceived Object Orientation

Melisa Menceloglu, Ken Nakayama & Joo-Hyun Song
Orientation sensitivity is a fundamental property of the visual system, but not all orientations are created equal. For instance, radially oriented stimuli, aligned with a line intersecting the center of gaze, produce greater activity throughout the visual cortex and are associated with greater perceptual sensitivity compared with other orientations. Here, we discuss a robust visual illusion that is likely related to this preference. Using a continuous response measure, participants (N = 36 adults) indicated the...

Analysis of dephasing time of plasmonic 1 hybridization modes using a quasi-normal mode method

Lun Wang, Boyu Ji, Yang Xu, peng lang, xiaowei song & Jingquan Lin
Near field coupling between different localized surface plasmon (LSP) modes supported by nanoparticles may result in two hybridization modes, namely bonding and antibonding modes. The antibonding mode is similar to the higher-order mode and has a longer dephasing time; the bonding mode has strong locality and higher near-field enhancement. It makes them very attractive in many applications, such as light-emitting electron sources, solar cells, sensors, etc. Measuring and regulating the LSP dephasing time (lifetime) is...
