  5. Technologies to Study Action Potential Propagation With a Focus on HD-MEAs 

    Emmenegger, Vishalini; Obien, Marie Engelene J.; Franke, Felix; et al. (2019)
    Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience
    Axons convey information in neuronal circuits via reliable conduction of action potentials (APs) from the axon initial segment (AIS) to the presynaptic terminals. Recent experimental findings increasingly evidence that the axonal function is not limited to the simple transmission of APs. Advances in subcellular-resolution recording techniques have shown that axons display activity-dependent modulation in spike shape and conduction ...

  6. The Bacterial Proteasome at the Core of Diverse Degradation Pathways 

    Müller, Andreas U.; Weber-Ban, Eilika (2019)
    Frontiers in Molecular Biosciences
    Proteasomal protein degradation exists in mycobacteria and other actinobacteria, and expands their repertoire of compartmentalizing protein degradation pathways beyond the usual bacterial types. A product of horizontal gene transfer, bacterial proteasomes have evolved to support the organism's survival under challenging environmental conditions like nutrient starvation and physical or chemical stresses. Like the eukaryotic 20S proteasome, ...

  7. Environmental effects on flying migrants revealed by radar 

    Becciu, Paolo; Menz, Myles H.M.; Aurbach, Annika; et al. (2019)
    Migratory animals are affected by various factors during their journeys, and the study of animal movement by radars has been instrumental in revealing key influences of the environment on flying migrants. Radars enable the simultaneous tracking of many individuals of almost all sizes within the radar range during day and night, and under low visibility conditions. We review how atmospheric conditions, geographic features and human development ...

  9. Reviews and syntheses: Dams, water quality and tropical reservoir stratification 

    Winton, Robert S.; Calamita, Elisa; Wehrli, Bernhard (2019)
    The impact of large dams is a popular topic in environmental science, but the importance of altered water quality as a driver of ecological impacts is often missing from such discussions. This is partly because information on the relationship between dams and water quality is relatively sparse and fragmentary, especially for low-latitude developing countries where dam building is now concentrated. In this paper, we review and synthesize ...

  14. Sun-Induced Chlorophyll Fluorescence II: Review of Passive Measurement Setups, Protocols, and Their Application at the Leaf to Canopy Level 

    Aasen, Helge; Van Wittenberghe, Shari; Medina, Neus Sabater; et al. (2019)
    Remote Sensing
    Imaging and non-imaging spectroscopy employed in the field and from aircraft is frequently used to assess biochemical, structural, and functional plant traits, as well as their dynamics in an environmental matrix. With the increasing availability of high-resolution spectroradiometers, it has become feasible to measure fine spectral features, such as those needed to estimate sun-induced chlorophyll fluorescence (F), which is a signal related ...

  17. Human in vitro models of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease 

    Müller, Fabrice A.; Sturla, Shana J. (2019)
    Current Opinion in Toxicology
    Systems-oriented approaches involving integrated in vitro and in silico models are emerging as a basis for future risk assessment strategies to address the current challenge in chemical risk assessment of increased numbers of registered chemicals with no toxicological data. Liver toxicity poses a major concern in risk assessment as the liver is exposed to most xenobiotic compounds and their bioactive metabolites, making the liver susceptible ...

  20. Cysteine Cathepsins and Their Extracellular Roles: Shaping the Microenvironment 

    Vidak, Eva; Javoršek, Urban; Vizovišek, Matej; et al. (2019)
    For a long time, cysteine cathepsins were considered primarily as proteases crucial for nonspecific bulk proteolysis in the endolysosomal system. However, this view has dramatically changed, and cathepsins are now considered key players in many important physiological processes, including in diseases like cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and various inflammatory diseases. Cathepsins are emerging as important players in the extracellular ...
