Biotechnological screening of microalgal and cyanobacterial strains for biogas production and antibacterial and antifungal effects.
Microalgae and cyanobacteria represent a valuable natural resource for the generation of a large variety of chemical substances that are of interest for medical research, can be used as additives in cosmetics and food ...
Impacts of motivational valence on the error-related negativity elicited by full and partial errors
Affect and motivation influence the error-related negativity (ERN) elicited by full errors; however, it is unknown whether they also influence ERNs to correct responses accompanied by covert incorrect response activation ...
Trophic ecology of the armadillo ant, Tatuidris tatusia, assessed by stable isotopes and behavioral observations.
Ants of the genus Tatuidris Brown and Kempf (Formicidae: Agroecomyrmecinae) generally occur at low abundances in forests of Central and South America. Their morphological peculiarities, such as mandibular brushes, are ...
WAXSiS: a web server for the calculation of SAXS/WAXS curves based on explicit-solvent molecular dynamics.
Small- and wide-angle X-ray scattering (SWAXS) has evolved into a powerful tool to study biological macromolecules in solution. The interpretation of SWAXS curves requires their accurate predictions from structural models. ...
Integrating body movement into attractiveness research.
People judge attractiveness and make trait inferences from the physical appearance of others, and research reveals high agreement among observers making such judgments. Evolutionary psychologists have argued that interest ...
Transcription Factor SomA Is Required for Adhesion, Development and Virulence of the Human Pathogen Aspergillus fumigatus.
The transcription factor Flo8/Som1 controls filamentous growth in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and virulence in the plant pathogen Magnaporthe oryzae. Flo8/Som1 includes a characteristic N-terminal LUG/LUH-Flo8-single-stranded ...
Nitrogen Metabolism Genes from Temperate Marine Sediments
n this study, we analysed metagenomes along with biogeochemical profiles from Skagerrak (SK) and Bothnian Bay (BB) sediments, to trace the prevailing nitrogen pathways. NO3− was present in the top 5 cm below the sediment-water ...
Melatonin and its metabolites as anti-nitrosating and anti-nitrating agents
Although basal and moderately elevated levels of nitric oxide are physiologically necessary and beneficial, excessive upregulations of this signaling molecule can be a cause of damage and cellular dysfunctions. In the ...
A Novel Metagenomic Short-Chain Dehydrogenase/Reductase Attenuates Pseudomonas aeruginosa Biofilm Formation and Virulence on Caenorhabditis elegans
In Pseudomonas aeruginosa, the expression of a number of virulence factors, as well as biofilm formation, are controlled by quorum sensing (QS). N-Acylhomoserine lactones (AHLs) are an important class of signaling molecules ...
Root Branching Is a Leading Root Trait of the Plant Economics Spectrum in Temperate Trees
Global vegetation models use conceived relationships between functional traits to simulate ecosystem responses to environmental change. In this context, the concept of the leaf economics spectrum (LES) suggests coordinated ...
