Phylogenetic analysis of eukaryotic NEET proteins uncovers a link between a key gene duplication event and the evolution of vertebrates

Description: This article describes the use of three members of the human NEET protein family (CISD1, mitoNEET; CISD2, NAF-1 or Miner 1; and CISD3, Miner2) as guides to conduct a phylogenetic analysis of eukaryotic NEET proteins and their evolution.

Interspecific Differences in Metabolic Rate and Metabolic Temperature Sensitivity Create Distinct Thermal Ecological Niches in Lizards (Plestiodon)

Description: This article examines three congeneric lizards from the southeastern United States (Plestiodon fasciatus, P. inexpectatus, and P. laticeps) and hypothesizes that interspecific differences in metabolic temperature sensitivity locally segregates them across their total range.

A novel statistical method for rare-variant association studies in general pedigrees

Description: In this paper, the authors discuss a novel statistical method for rare-variant association studies in general pedigrees for quantitative traits. This method uses a retrospective view that treats the traits as fixed and the genotypes as random, which accounts for complex and undefined ascertainment of families.

Further Numerical Analyses on the Solubility of Sulfapyridine in Ethanol + Water Mixtures

Description: This article aims to correlate the solubility of sulfapyridine and sulfadiazine in ethanol + water mixtures by means of the Jouyban-Acree model, and to evaluate the preferential solvation of sulfapyridine in these mixtures by using the inverse Kirkwood-Buff integrals.

The deepest X-ray view of high-redshift galaxies: constraints on low-rate black hole accretion

Description: This article exploits the 7 Ms Chandra observations in the Chandra Deep Field-South (CDF-S), the deepest X-ray survey to date, coupled with CANDELS/GOODS-S data, to measure the total X-ray emission arising from 2076 galaxies at 3.5 ≤ z ≤ 6.5.

Reactive oxygen species, abiotic stress and stress combination

Description: This article reviews recent studies on the role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in abiotic stress in plants, and propose that different abiotic stresses, such as drought, heat, salinity and high light, result in different ROS signatures that determine the specificity of the acclimation response and help tailor it to the exact stress the plant encounters.
