Data from: Human macular Müller cells rely more on serine biosynthesis to combat oxidative stress than those from the periphery

The human macula is more susceptible than the peripheral retina to developing blinding conditions such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy. A key difference between them may be the nature of their Müller cells. We found primary cultured Müller cells from macula and peripheral retina display significant morphological and transcriptomic differences. Macular Müller cells expressed more Phosphoglycerate Dehydrogenase (PHGDH, a rate-limiting enzyme in serine synthesis) than peripheral Müller cells. The serine synthesis, glycolytic and mitochondrial...

Water-borne and plasma corticosterone are not correlated in spotted salamanders

Alice Millikin, Sarah Woodley, Drew Davis, Ignacio Moore & James Anderson
Water-borne hormone measurement is a noninvasive method suitable for amphibians of all sizes that are otherwise difficult to sample. For this method, containment-water is assayed for hormones released by the animal. Originally developed in fish, the method has expanded to amphibians, but requires additional species-specific validations. We wanted to determine physiological relevance of water-borne corticosterone in spotted salamanders (Ambystoma maculatum) by comparing concentrations to those taken using established corticosterone sampling methods, such as plasma. Using...

Data from: Influence of climate change and post-delisting management on long-term population viability of the conservation-reliant Kirtland’s warbler

Donald Brown, Deahn Donner, Christine A. Ribic & Carol Bocetti
Rapid global climate change is resulting in novel abiotic and biotic conditions and interactions. Identifying management strategies that maximize probability of long-term persistence requires an understanding of the vulnerability of species to environmental changes. We sought to quantify the vulnerability of Kirtland’s Warbler (Setophaga kirtlandii), a rare Neotropical migratory songbird that breeds almost exclusively in the Lower Peninsula of Michigan and winters in the Bahamian Archipelago, to projected environmental changes on the breeding and wintering...

Data from: Oral anticoagulation in patients with chronic kidney disease: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Objective: Data regarding the efficacy and safety of warfarin and Non-Vitamin K Antagonist Oral Anticoagulant (NOAC) among patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) remain scarce. Methods: Systematic review and meta-analysis of studies involving CKD patients treated on OACs was conducted to evaluate following outcomes: ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), combined ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke (strokecombined), stroke or systemic embolism, mortality, and major bleeding events. CKD was defined based on creatinine clearance (CrCl) ranging from mild...
