Dry season limnological conditions and basin geology exhibit complex relationships with δ¹³C and δ¹⁵N of carbon sources in four Neotropical floodplains

Description: This article assesses the potential for basin geology and local limnological conditions to predict stable carbon and nitrogen isotope values of six carbon sources at multiple locations in four Neotropical floodplain ecosystems (Paranaá , Pantanal, Araguaia, and Amazon).

Breast Cancer Stem-Like Cells Are Inhibited by Diosgenin, a Steroidal Saponin, by the Attenuation of the Wnt β-Catenin Signaling via the Wnt Antagonist Secreted Frizzled Related Protein-4

Description: This article describes findings that demonstrate the affect of diosgenin (DG) on inhibiting the resilient breast cancer stem cells (CSCs) which could provide a benchmark for the development of DG-based therapies in breast cancer treatment.

Novel transcriptome assembly and comparative toxicity pathway analysis in mahi-mahi (Coryphaena hippurus) embryos and larvae exposed to Deepwater Horizon oil

Description: This article establishes the de novo transcriptomic database from the embryos and larvae of mahi-mahi exposed to water accommodated fractions (HEWAFs) of two Deepwater Horizon oil types (weathered and source oil) in an effort to advance understanding of the molecular aspects involved during specific toxicity responses.

Redox non-innoence permits catalytic nitrene carbonylation by (dadi)Ti=NAd (Ad = adamantyl)

Description: This article describes (dadi)Ti(X/L) species that manifest redox non-innocence (RNI), including a rare instance in which carbon monoxide does not affect redox activity at the metal, and does not bind, thus permitting its use as a substrate in catalysis.

Computational Identification of Amino-Acid Mutations that Further Improve the Activity of a Chalcone-Flavonone Isomerase from Glycine max

Description: This article discusses a computational approach that combines multiple sequence alignment, positive selection detection, and molecular docking to identify and design beneficial amino-acid mutations that further improve the intramolecular-cyclization activity of a chalcone-flavonone isomerase from Glycine max (GmCHI).

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.

Commentary on "Effect of β-alanine and the solvent composition on the solubility of solvate of calcium D-pantothenate containing four molecules of methanol and one molecule of water (D-PC·4MeOH·1H₂O)"

Description: This article points out problems associated with two of the mathematical treatments used by authors Han et al. (2017) for the solubility behavior of calcium D-panthenate solvate as the mole fraction concentration β-alanine approaches zero.
