Transcriptome-wide investigation of stop codon readthrough in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

PLoS Genet 2021 Apr 20;17(4):e1009538. Epub 2021 Apr 20.

Department of Microbiology and Physiological Systems, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, Massachusetts, United States of America.

Translation of mRNA into a polypeptide is terminated when the release factor eRF1 recognizes a UAA, UAG, or UGA stop codon in the ribosomal A site and stimulates nascent peptide release. However, stop codon readthrough can occur when a near-cognate tRNA outcompetes eRF1 in decoding the stop codon, resulting in the continuation of the elongation phase of protein synthesis. At the end of a conventional mRNA coding region, readthrough allows translation into the mRNA 3'-UTR. Read More

Composted recycled organic matter suppresses soil-borne diseases of field crops.

New Phytol 2002 Jun;154(3):731-740

Ecological Sciences Ltd, Wolfson Laboratory, Higher Hoopern Lane, Exeter, Devon, EX4 4SG, UK.

• Suppression of soil-borne diseases of horticultural crops by composts has been attributed to the activities of antagonistic microorganisms. The potential for abiotic disease suppression in field-grown crops was explored using glasshouse-based bio-assays for five pathogens of agricultural crops and eight formulations of recycled organic matter compost. • The effects of compost formulation and postmaturation processing were investigated by comparing disease severity on recycled organic matter composts with a commercial seedling compost.

A deep attention model to forecast the Length Of Stay and the in-hospital mortality right on admission from ICD codes and demographic data.

J Biomed Inform 2021 Apr 16:103778. Epub 2021 Apr 16.

Graduate School of Information, Yonsei University, Seoul, Republic of Korea. Electronic address:

Leveraging the Electronic Health Records (EHR) longitudinal data to produce actionable clinical insights has always been a critical issue for recent studies. Non-forecasted extended hospitalizations account for a disproportionate amount of resource use, the mediocre quality of inpatient care, and avoidable fatalities. The capability to predict the Length of Stay (LoS) and mortality in the early stages of the admission provides opportunities to improve care and prevent many preventable losses. Read More

A. J. Acuña, T. K. Jella, L. T. Samuel, S. H. Jeong, A. F. Kamath, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, OH, USA.

Background: Although previous studies have evaluated how the proportion of women in orthopaedic surgery has changed over time, these analyses have been limited by small sample sizes, have primarily used data on residents, and have not included information on growth across subspecialties and geographic regions.

Question/purpose: We used the National Provider Identifier registry to ask: How have the (1) overall, (2) regional, and (3) subspecialty percentages of women among all currently practicing orthopaedic providers changed over time in the United States?

Methods: The National Provider Identifier Registry of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) was queried for all active providers with taxonomy codes pertaining to orthopaedic subspecialties as of April 2020. Women orthopaedic surgeons were identified among all physicians with subspecialty taxonomy codes. Read More

Direct effects of selection on aboveground biomass contrast with indirect structure-mediated effects of complementarity in a subtropical forest.

Oecologia 2021 Apr 18. Epub 2021 Apr 18.

Department of Ecology, State Key Laboratory of Biocontrol, School of Life Sciences, Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou, 510275, China.

Understanding the multiple biotic and abiotic controls of aboveground biomass (AGB) is important for projecting the consequences of global change and to effectively manage carbon storage. Although large-scale studies have identified the major environmental and biological controls of AGB, drivers of local-scale variation are less well known. Additionally, involvement of multiple causal paths and scale dependence in effect sizes potentially confounds comparisons among studies differing in methodology and sampling grain. Read More

Platforms of Work, Labour, and Employment Relationship: The Grey Zones of a Digital Governance.

Front Sociol 2020 19;5. Epub 2020 Feb 19.

Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (CNAM), Paris, France.

Drawing on numerous case studies, the article examines the specific conditions for organising and managing the employment relationship on digital labour platforms. We show that these conditions are largely due to the disruptive nature of the process of digitising the employee-employer relationship. Digitisation replaces the employment contract of the standard employment relationship with a triangular "worker-platform-customer" relationship. Read More

An Adaptable, Open-Access Test Battery to Study the Fractionation of Executive-Functions in Diverse Populations.

Front Psychol 2021 30;12:627219. Epub 2021 Mar 30.

Departamento de Psicobiologia, Universidade Federal de São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil.

The umbrella-term 'executive functions' (EF) includes various domain-general, goal-directed cognitive abilities responsible for behavioral self-regulation. The influential unity and diversity model of EF posits the existence of three correlated yet separable executive domains: inhibition, shifting and updating. These domains may be influenced by factors such as socioeconomic status (SES) and culture, possibly due to the way EF tasks are devised and to biased choice of stimuli, focusing on first-world testees.
