Molecular basis for the distinct cellular functions of the Lsm1-7 and Lsm2-8 complexes.

RNA 2020 Jun 9. Epub 2020 Jun 9.

University of Wisconsin, Madison

Eukaryotes possess eight highly conserved Lsm (like Sm) proteins that assemble into circular, heteroheptameric complexes, bind RNA, and direct a diverse range of biological processes. Among the many essential functions of Lsm proteins, the cytoplasmic Lsm1-7 complex initiates mRNA decay, while the nuclear Lsm2-8 complex acts as a chaperone for U6 spliceosomal RNA. It has been unclear how these complexes perform their distinct functions while differing by only one out of seven subunits. Read More

The impact on emotion classification performance and gaze behavior of foveal versus extrafoveal processing of facial features.

J Exp Psychol Hum Percept Perform 2020 Mar;46(3):292-312

Department of Experimental Psychology.

At normal interpersonal distances all features of a face cannot fall within one's fovea simultaneously. Given that certain facial features are differentially informative of different emotions, does the ability to identify facially expressed emotions vary according to the feature fixated and do saccades preferentially seek diagnostic features? Previous findings are equivocal. We presented faces for a brief time, insufficient for a saccade, at a spatial position that guaranteed that a given feature-an eye, cheek, the central brow, or mouth-fell at the fovea. Read More

Lateral Hooding of the Brow Revisited: Reverse Brow Lifting Versus the ROOF Lift.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2020 04 4;44(2):630-632. Epub 2020 Feb 4.

Velthuis Kliniek, K.P. van der Mandelelaan 10, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

We read with great interest the article titled "Anatomical Study and Clinical Observation of Retro-orbicularis Oculi Fat (ROOF)" by Xian Wang and Haiping Wang. Our aim with this comment is to contribute to a more precise nomenclature of any correction of lateral hooding of the brow. We believe both a ROOF lift and reverse browpexy or transblepharoplasty browpexy are not just two different techniques for the same purpose, they are also techniques based on two different concepts.
