Characterizing human mobility patterns in rural settings of sub-Saharan Africa.

Elife 2021 Sep 17;10. Epub 2021 Sep 17.

Department of Epidemiology, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore, United States.

Human mobility is a core component of human behavior and its quantification is critical for understanding its impact on infectious disease transmission, traffic forecasting, access to resources and care, intervention strategies, and migratory flows. When mobility data are limited, spatial interaction models have been widely used to estimate human travel, but have not been extensively validated in low- and middle-income settings. Geographic, sociodemographic, and infrastructure differences may impact the ability for models to capture these patterns, particularly in rural settings. Read More

The lampricide 3-trifluoromethyl-4-nitrophenol causes temporary metabolic disturbances in juvenile lake sturgeon (): implications for sea lamprey control and fish conservation.

Conserv Physiol 2021 8;9(1):coab069. Epub 2021 Sep 8.

Department of Biology and Laurier Institute for Water Science, Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Ontario N2L 3C5, Canada.

The pesticide 3-trifluoromethyl-4-nitrophenol (TFM) is applied to rivers and streams draining into the Laurentian Great Lakes to control populations of invasive sea lamprey (), which are ongoing threats to fisheries during the lamprey's hematophagous, parasitic juvenile life stage. While TFM targets larval sea lamprey during treatments, threatened populations of juvenile lake sturgeon (), particularly young-of-the-year (<100 mm in length), may be adversely affected by TFM when their habitats overlap with larval sea lamprey. Exposure to TFM causes marked reductions in tissue glycogen and high energy phosphagens in lamprey and rainbow trout () by interfering with oxidative ATP production in the mitochondria. Read More

Front Immunol 2021 13;12:739605. Epub 2021 Aug 13.

State Key Laboratory of Ophthalmology, Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center, Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou, China.

Glucocorticoids (GCs) are widely used immunosuppressive drugs for autoimmune diseases, although considerable gaps exist between current knowledge of the mechanisms of GCs and their conclusive immune-regulatory effects. Here we generated a single-cell transcriptional immune cell atlas based on prednisone-treated or untreated experimental autoimmune uveitis (EAU) mice. Immune cells were globally activated in EAU, and prednisone partially reversed this effect in terms of cell composition, gene expression, transcription factor regulation, and cell-cell communication.
