Interactions between mitoNEET and NAF-1 in cells

Description: This article uses yeast two-hybrid to demonstrate through vivo bimolecular fluorescence complementation (BiFC), direct coupling analysis (DCA), RNA-sequencing, ROS and iron imaging, and single and double shRNA lines with suppressed mNT, NAF-1 and mNT/NAF-1 expression, that mNT and NAF-1 directly interact in mammalian cells and could function in the same cellular pathway.

Ethnobiology 5: Interdisciplinarity in an Era of Rapid Environmental Change

Description: This article argues that ethnobiology is preadapted to be a scholarly umbrella for a number of disciplines that concern human-environment interactions, suggesting that two goals of Ethnobiology 5 are to bridge traditional academic boundaries in order to broaden the community of ethnobiologists, and to capitalize on and communicate the relevance of ethnobiological scholarship for solving problems related to contemporary environmental and cultural crises.
