Ant semiochemicals limit apterous aphid dispersal
Some organisms can manipulate the nervous systems of others or alter their physiology in order to obtain benefit. Ants are known to limit alate aphid dispersal by physically removing wings and also through chemical ...
Inhibition of cellular proliferation by the genistein metabolite 5,7,3',4'-tetrahydroxyisoflavone is mediated by DNA damage and activation of the ATR signalling pathway
The cellular actions of genistein, and its in vivo metabolites, are believed to mediate the decreased risk of breast cancer associated with high soy consumption. The genistein metabolite, 5,7,3',4'-tetrahydroxyisoflavone ...

Decoding the spectra of SDSS early-type galaxies : New indicators of age and recent star formation
We apply principal component analysis (PCA) to a sample of early-type galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) in order to infer differences in their star formation histories from their unresolved stellar populations. ...
Homeostatic role of toll-like receptor 4 in the endothelium and heart
Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) is a pattern recognition receptor for lipopolysaccharide from Gram negative bacteria and thus is integral to the innate immune response in mammals. In addition, TLR4 is associated with atherosclerosis ...
Poor social comparison and the tendency to submissive behavior in anorexia nervosa
Objective: The aim of this study was to confirm an association between low social rank (SR) and anorexia nervosa (AN), and to test the hypotheses that low SR is (a) present after recovery from the illness, (b) mediates an ...
