The PREDICTS database: a global database of how local terrestrial biodiversity responds to human impacts.
Biodiversity continues to decline in the face of increasing anthropogenic pressures such as habitat destruction, exploitation, pollution and introduction of alien species. Existing global databases of species' threat status ...
CEACAM1 controls the EMT switch in murine mammary carcinoma in vitro and in vivo
We analyzed the molecular basis for carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecule 1 (CEACAM1)-controlled inhibition of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in a mouse model for mammary adenocarcinoma (WAP-T ...
On the path to the digital rock physics of gas hydrate-bearing sediments – processing of in situ synchrotron-tomography data
To date, very little is known about the distribution of natural gas hydrates in sedimentary matrices and its influence on the seismic properties of the host rock, in particular at low hydrate concentration. Digital rock ...
Kowledge transfer in biology and translation across external representations: Experts' views and challenges for learning
(Springer Netherlands, 2009)
Recent curriculum reform promotes core competencies such as desired ‘content knowledge’ and ‘communication’ for meaningful learning in biology. Understanding in biology is demonstrated when pupils can apply acquired knowledge ...
It´s MAGIC - development of a manageable geriatric assessment for general practice use
Background Geriatric assessments are established tools in institutional care since they enable standardized detection of relevant age-related disorders. Geriatric assessments could also be helpful in general practice. ...
Effects of density dependence in a temperate forest in northeastern China.
Negative density dependence may cause reduced clustering among individuals of the same species, and evidence is accumulating that conspecific density-dependent self-thinning is an important mechanism regulating the spatial ...
Future physicians and tobacco: an online survey of the habits, beliefs and knowledge base of medical students at a Canadian University
Background Little is known about the knowledge and attitudes towards tobacco use among medical students in Canada. Our objectives were to estimate the prevalence of tobacco use among medical students, assess their perceived ...
Diversity of putative archaeal RNA viruses in metagenomic datasets of a yellowstone acidic hot spring.
Two genomic fragments (5,662 and 1,269 nt in size, GenBank accession no. JQ756122 and JQ756123, respectively) of novel, positive-strand RNA viruses that infect archaea were first discovered in an acidic hot spring in ...
Pleural malakoplakia caused by Rhodoccocus equi infection in a patient after stem cell transplantation
Malakoplakia is a disease especially of the urinary tract with typical plaques most frequently observed in the urinary bladder's mucosa. In the context of immunosuppression malakoplakia can also occur in other organs. Some ...
