Managing Colorado Potato Beetle Insecticide Resistance: New Tools and Strategies for the Next Decade of Pest Control in Potato
(Entomological Society of America, 2014-12-01)
Neonicotinoid insecticides have been the most common management tool for Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say), infestations in cultivated potato for nearly 20 yr. The relative ease of applying neonicotinoids ...
Radiofrequency bipolar hemostatic sealer reduces blood loss, transfusion requirements, and cost for patients undergoing multilevel spinal fusion surgery: a case control study
Background A relatively new method of electrocautery, the radiofrequency bipolar hemostatic sealer (RBHS), uses saline-cooled delivery of energy, which seals blood vessels rather than burning them. We assessed the benefits ...
The pivotal role of pyruvate dehydrogenase kinases in metabolic flexibility
Metabolic flexibility is the capacity of a system to adjust fuel (primarily glucose and fatty acids) oxidation based on nutrient availability. The ability to alter substrate oxidation in response to nutritional state depends ...
Heat stress causes oxidative stress but not inflammatory signaling in porcine skeletal muscle
Heat stress is associated with death and other maladaptions including muscle dysfunction and impaired growth across species. Despite this common observation, the molecular effects leading to these pathologic changes remain ...
Gestational Heat Stress Alters Postnatal Offspring Body Composition Indices and Metabolic Parameters in Pigs
The study objectives were to test the hypothesis that heat stress (HS) during gestational development alters postnatal growth, body composition, and biological response to HS conditions in pigs. To investigate this, 14 ...
Citrulination unravels stem cells
Genetic resources for methane production from biomass described with the Gene Ontology

Controlling Magnetotactic Bacteria through an Integrated Nanofabricated Metallic Island and Optical Microscope Approach
(Nature Publishing Group, 2014-02-01)
Herein, we demonstrate the control of magnetotactic bacteria through the application of magnetic field gradients with real-time visualization. We accomplish this control by integrating a pair of macroscale Helmholtz coils ...
