Objectives: The study investigated the influence of childhood asthma on dental caries development and caries risk factors among children with asthma in Slovenia.Material And Methods: The study population consisted of 2-17 years old children (n = 138), who had used anti-asthmatic medicines for at least 1 year. Controls were their non-asthmatic siblings (n = 140). Read More

Consumer-resource interactions between trophic levels are ubiquitous and important factors in shaping the diversity of insects. However, dietary patterns such as host specificity and conservatism have been insufficiently examined in fungivorous insects. Here we reconstructed the evolutionary history of host use in fungivorous ciid beetles (Coleoptera: Ciidae) and tested for host conservatism. Read More

Despite growing evidence that niche shifts are more common in flowering plants than previously thought, little is known whether such shifts are promoted by changes in photosynthetic pathways. Here we combine the most complete phylogeny for epiphytic Malagasy Bulbophyllum orchids (c. 210 spp. Read More

Guanylyl cyclase (GC) is an enzyme that produces 3',5'-cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), one of the two canonical cyclic nucleotides used as a second messenger for intracellular signal transduction. The GCs are classified into two groups, particulate/membrane GCs (pGC) and soluble/cytosolic GCs (sGC). In relation to the endocrine system, pGCs include hormone receptors for natriuretic peptides (GC-A and GC-B) and guanylin peptides (GC-C), while sGC is a receptor for nitric oxide and carbon monoxide.

Modern engage in substantial ecosystem modification, but it is difficult to detect the origins or early consequences of these behaviors. Archaeological, geochronological, geomorphological, and paleoenvironmental data from northern Malawi document a changing relationship between forager presence, ecosystem organization, and alluvial fan formation in the Late Pleistocene. Dense concentrations of Middle Stone Age artifacts and alluvial fan systems formed after ca. Read More
