Data from: TAPBPR bridges UDP-glucose:glycoprotein glucosyltransferase 1 onto MHC class I to provide quality control in the antigen presentation pathwayAndreas Neerincx, Clemens Hermann, Robin Antrobus, Andy Van Hateren, Cao Huan, Nico Trautwein, Stefan Stevanović, Tim Elliott, Janet E. Deane, Louise H. Boyle & Huan Cao
Recently we revealed that TAPBPR is a peptide exchange catalyst important for optimal peptide selection by MHC class I molecules. Here we asked if any other co-factors associate with TAPBPR which would explain its effect on peptide selection. We identify an interaction between TAPBPR and UDP-glucose:glycoprotein glucosyltransferase 1 (UGT1), a folding sensor in the calnexin/calreticulin quality control cycle known to regenerate the Glc1Man9GlcNAc2 moiety on glycoproteins. Our results suggest the formation of a multimeric complex,...
Data from: The challenges of detecting subtle population structure and its importance for the conservation of emperor penguinsJane L. Younger, Gemma V. Clucas, Damian Kao, Alex D. Rogers, Karim Gharbi, Tom Hart & Karen J. Miller
Understanding the boundaries of breeding populations is of great importance for conservation efforts and estimates of extinction risk for threatened species. However, determining these boundaries can be difficult when population structure is subtle. Emperor penguins are highly reliant on sea ice, and some populations may be in jeopardy as climate change alters sea-ice extent and quality. An understanding of emperor penguin population structure is therefore urgently needed. Two previous studies have differed in their conclusions,...

peanutButter: An R package to produce rapid-response gridded population estimates from building footprints, version 0.1.0Douglas Leasure, Claire Dooley, Maksym Bondarenko, Andrew Tatem & WorldPop
peanutButter is an R package that allows you to produce gridded population estimates from building footprints using the "peanut butter" method of spreading people evenly among buildings based on a set of simple parameters. This package allows you to: 1) produce gridded population estimates using a bottom-up approach that applies your estimates of average people per building for urban and rural areas to each building in the corresponding settlement type, 2) produce gridded population estimates...
Objective: To determine predictors of alcohol responsiveness in a large cohort of dystonia patients. Methods: 2159 participants with dystonia were prospectively enrolled in the cross-sectional Dystonia Coalition multicenter study. Patients with secondary, combined or confirmed genetic dystonia (total n=164) or unknown alcohol responsiveness (n= 737) were excluded. Patients answered a standardized questionnaire and were clinically examined using a standardized video protocol and the Burke-Fahn-Marsden Dystonia Rating Scale. Alcohol responsiveness was determined by patients’ self-report. Results:...

Data from: Independent homoploid hybrid speciation events in the Macaronesian endemic genus ArgyranthemumOliver W. White, Alfredo Reyes-Betancort, Mark A. Chapman & Mark A. Carine
Well-characterised examples of homoploid hybrid speciation (HHS) are rare in nature yet they offer the potential to study a number of evolutionary processes. In this study we investigate putative homoploid hybrid species in the genus Argyranthemum (Asteraceae), a group of plants endemic to the Macaronesian archipelagos of the North Atlantic Ocean. We specifically address a number of knowledge gaps surrounding the origin(s) of A. sundingii and A. lemsii, which are thought to be derived from...

Data from: The consequences of daily cyclic hypoxia on a European grass shrimp: from short-term responses to long-term effectsLuca Peruzza, Marco Gerdol, Andrew Oliphant, David Wilcockson, Alberto Pallavicini, Lawrence Hawkins, Sven Thatje & Chris Hauton
1. Salt marshes are a key coastal environment for their important role as nursery habitats for marine and estuarine fish and crustaceans. Salt marshes are variable environments where species can experience daily cyclic hypoxic stress, characterized by profound variations in oxygen partial pressure (pO2) from supersaturated conditions (~42kPa) to extremely hypoxic conditions (~3kPa) in ~12-hours. 2. Here, under laboratory conditions, we assessed the physiological consequences of exposing the shrimp Palaemon varians, a species commonly found...
Data from: Leaf litter decomposition in tropical freshwater swamp forests is slower in swamp than non-swamp conditionsWeng Ngai Lam, Jun Jie Lian, Pin Jia Chan, Ying Ying Ting, Rie Chong, Nur Estya Rahman, Lorraine Tan, Qian Yi Ho, Sorain Ramchunder, Kelvin Peh, Yixiong Cai & Kwek Yan Chong
Decomposition is a key ecosystem function, and the rate of decomposition in forests affects their carbon storage potentials. Processes and factors determining leaf litter decomposition rates in dry-land and temperate forests are well understood, but these are generally poorly studied in tropical wetland forests, especially freshwater swamp forests (FSF). The home-field advantage (HFA) hypothesis predicts that soil microbes specialize in decomposing leaf litter produced by the tree species in their immediate vicinity. However, empirical support...
Data from: Plant DNA metabarcoding of lake sediments: how does it represent the contemporary vegetationInger Greve Alsos, Youri Lammers, Nigel Giles Yoccoz, Tina Jørgensen, Per Sjögren, Ludovic Gielly & Mary E. Edwards
Metabarcoding of lake sediments have been shown to reveal current and past biodiversity, but little is known about the degree to which taxa growing in the vegetation are represented in environmental DNA (eDNA) records. We analysed composition of lake and catchment vegetation and vascular plant eDNA at 11 lakes in northern Norway. Out of 489 records of taxa growing within 2 m from the lake shore, 17-49% (mean 31%) of the identifiable taxa recorded were...

This dataset supports the publication: Topological bimeronic beams, by Y.Shen in Optics Letters 2021 This Letter proposes a family of structured vector beams, bimeronic beams, that well characterize topological structures of bimeron (the quasiparticle homeomorphic to skyrmion). It is shown that the polarization Stokes vectors of bimeronic beams emulate bimeron structures, which are reconfigurable to form various topological textures by tuning mode parameters. The bimeronic beams unveil a new mechanism to transform diverse topological states...
Data from: Coupled land use and ecological models reveal emergence and feedbacks in socio‐ecological systemsNicholas W. Synes, Calum Brown, Stephen C. F. Palmer, Greta Bocedi, Patrick E. Osborne, Kevin Watts, Janet Franklin & Justin M. J. Travis
Understanding the dynamics of socio‐ecological systems is crucial to the development of environmentally sustainable practices. Models of social or ecological sub‐systems have greatly enhanced such understanding, but at the risk of obscuring important feedbacks and emergent effects. Integrated modelling approaches have the potential to address this shortcoming by explicitly representing linked socio‐ecological dynamics. We developed a socio‐ecological system model by coupling an existing agent‐based model of land‐use dynamics and an individual‐based model of demography and...

What is the significance of sisters and brothers, and friends, in the lives of children and young people? Do such relationships change over time? This project tracked the lives of fifty children from mid-childhood to young adulthood to help answer these questions. It provided a valuable qualitative longitudinal dataset that documents the meanings, experiences and flows of children's prescribed (sibling) and chosen (friendship) relationships. Drawing on varied samples of children from three previous studies (2003-5),...
