NF-κB mediates Gadd45β expression and DNA demethylation in the hippocampus during fear memory formation
Gadd45-mediated DNA demethylation mechanisms have been implicated in the process of memory formation. However, the transcriptional mechanisms involved in the regulation of Gadd45 gene expression during memory formation ...
Phytophthora aquimorbida sp nov and Phytophthora taxon 'aquatilis' recovered from irrigation reservoirs and a stream in Virginia, USA
(Mycological Society of America, 2012-04)
Two distinct subgroups (L2 and A(-2)) were recovered from irrigation reservoirs and a stream in Virginia, USA. After molecular, morphological and physiological examinations, the L2 subgroup was named Phytophthora aquimorbida ...
Towards strengthening collaborative ecosystem management: Lessons from environmental conflict and political change in southern Africa
(Wellington, NZ: Royal Society of New Zealand, 2001)
Ecosystem conservation in southern Africa (in particular South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Namibia) is characterised by high levels of past and present conflicts. During the apartheid and colonial periods indigenous ...
Internalization of Erythrocyte Acylpeptide Hydrolase Is Required for Asexual Replication of Plasmodium falciparum
(American Society for Microbiology, 2019-05-08)
The human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum causes disease as it replicates within the host's erythrocytes. We have found that an erythrocyte serine hydrolase, acylpeptide hydrolase (APEH), accumulates within developing ...
Seafood Processing and Safety
Food microorganisms are found on all surfaces (skin and gills) and in the intestines of ﬁshery products.[...]
The Flavonoid Kaempferol Ameliorates Streptozotocin-Induced Diabetes by Suppressing Hepatic Glucose Production
In diabetes mellitus, the excessive rate of glucose production from the liver is considered a primary contributor for the development of hyperglycemia, in particular, fasting hyperglycemia. In this study, we investigated ...
Striving for sustainable wildlife management: The case of Kilombero Game Controlled Area, Tanzania
(London, UK: Academic Press, 2002)
The sustainability of wildlife resources in Africa is threatened by poaching for trophies and meat as well as changes in land use. In order to motivate local people for sustainable wildlife management, efforts to transfer ...
Nhlh2 is a Cold-Responsive Gene
(Bentham Open, 2010)
Nescient helix-loop-helix 2 (Nhlh2) is a basic helix-loop-helix transcription factor that functions to communicate signals of energy availability. Based on the expression pattern of Nhlh2 in cold-sensitive areas of the ...
AMP-Activated Protein Kinase Mediates the Effect of Leptin on Avian Autophagy in a Tissue-Specific Manner
Autophagy, a highly conserved intracellular self-digestion process, plays an integral role in maintaining cellular homeostasis. Although emerging evidence indicate that the endocrine system regulates autophagy in mammals, ...
Multi-dimensional evaluation and ranking of coastal areas using GIS and multiple criteria choice methods
(Amsterdam, Netherlands: Elsevier Science B.V., 2002)
Coastal ecosystems are increasingly threatened by short-sighted management policies that focus on human activities rather than the systems that sustain them. The early assessment of the impacts of human activities on the ...
