N-acylethanolamide metabolizing enzymes are upregulated in human neural progenitor-derived neurons exposed to sub-lethal oxidative stress

Description: Article is a study determining whether ReN cells, a superior cell model system for studying neurodevelopment, differentiation, and neuroprotection, express proteins involved in canonical eCB NAE signaling and whether oxidative stress can induce their expression. This study is a first step toward determining how oxidative stress affects CB1, CB2, FAAH, NAAA, and NAPE-PLD expression and their potential defense against oxidative stress.

Comparing Methods of Defining Priority Areas for Greater Sage-Grouse

Description: Article comparing priority areas for wildlife species using different methods and data types. The authors used resource selection function (RSF) models to predict high priority areas and compared this to priority areas developed using two alternative methods: (1) modified conservation buffer, and (2) utilization distribution (UD) models.

Thermal Stress Has Minimal Effects on Bacterial Communities of Thermotolerant Symbiodinium Cultures

Description: Article comparing the microbial communities of three isolates from different species of the genus Symbiodinium (formerly known as Symbiodinium clade A) with different ecophysiology, levels of interaction with the animal host, and thermal adaptations. Results suggest that bacteria associated or co-cultured with thermotolerant Symbiodinium might play an important role in thermotolerance.

Case report: Early-onset osteoporosis in a patient carrying a novel heterozygous variant of the WNT1 gene

Description: Article presents a case study of a 35 year-old Caucasian woman who experienced multiple vertebral fractures two months after her second pregnancy. The results suggest a potential role of heterozygous WNT1 variants in the pathogenesis of early-onset osteoporosis. The authors suggest that teriparatide is one of the most appropriate available therapies for such cases.

MtGSTF7, a TT19-like GST gene, is essential for accumulation of anthocyanins, but not proanthocyanins in Medicago truncatula

Description: Article shows that the mechanism of anthocyanin and proanthocyanin (PA) accumulation in M. truncatula is different from that in A. thaliana, and provides a new target gene for engineering anthocyanins in plants.

Biomimics of [FeFe]-hydrogenases incorporating redox-active ligands: synthesis, redox properties and spectroelectrochemistry of diiron-dithiolate complexes with ferrocenyl-diphosphines as Fe4S4 surrogates

Description: Article prepares and characterizes a small series of new [FeFe]-ase biomimics which contain a ferrocenyl diphosphine as a surrogate for the Fe₄S₄ moiety in the H-cluster of the enzyme. Mechanistic details of both proton reduction and H₂ oxidation have been studied by DFT allowing speculative reaction schemes to be developed.

Regulating C2H2/CO2 adsorption selectivity by electronic-state manipulation of iron in metal-organic frameworks

Description: Article reports a metal electronic-state manipulation strategy to construct a pair of isostructural and interconvertible Fe-MOFs featuring open Fe centers with different electron densities for efficient C₂H₂/CO₂ separation. The authors show that the presence of Fe[II] centers with a medium-spin-state trail plays a crucial role in the enhanced C₂H₂ selective adsorption.
