The complete mitochondrial genome of Undinula vulgaris (Dana, 1849) (Crustacea: Calanoida: Calanidae)

Jinwook Back, Hana Kim, Sang-Hwa Lee, Sang-Hui Lee, Myung-Hwa Shin, Byung-Jin Lim
2019 Mitochondrial DNA Part B: Resources  
The present study reports, for the first time, the complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of Undinula vulgaris. The total mitogenome length of U. vulgaris was 15,303 bp with 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), 2 ribosomal RNAs (rRNAs), 22 transfer RNAs (tRNAs), and 1 non-coding region. Phylogenetic analysis showed that U. vulgaris belonged to the same family. This is the second report of the complete mitogenome sequence of the family Calanidae.

Reconceptualising precision public health

Dana Lee Olstad, Lynn McIntyre
2019 BMJ Open  
As currently conceived, precision public health is at risk of becoming precision medicine at a population level. This paper outlines a framework for precision public health that, in contrast to its current operationalisation, is consistent with public health principles because it integrates factors at all levels, while illuminating social position as a fundamental determinant of health and health inequities. We review conceptual foundations of public health, outline a proposed framework for

Thus, in our formulation, precision public health investigates how multiple dimensions of social position interact to confer health risk differently for precisely defined population subgroups according to the social contexts in which they are embedded, while considering relevant biological and behavioural factors. It leverages this information to uncover the precise and intersecting social structures that pattern health outcomes, and to identify actionable interventions within the social contexts of affected groups. We contend that studies informed by this framework offer greater potential to improve health than current conceptualisations of precision public health that do not address root causes. Moreover, expanding beyond master categories of social position and operationalising these categories in more precise ways across time and place can enrich public health research through greater attention to the heterogeneity of social positions, their causes and health effects, leading to the identification of points of intervention that are specific enough to be useful in reducing health inequities. Failure to attend to this level of particularity may mask the true nature of health risk, the causal mechanisms at play and appropriate interventions. Conceptualised thus, precision public health is a research endeavour with much to offer by way of understanding and intervening on the causes of poor health and health inequities.As currently conceived, precision public health is at risk of becoming precision medicine at a population level.

Teaching and Learning [chapter]

Dana Lee Baker, Brandon Leonard
2016 Neuroethics in Higher Education Policy  
This teaching tip deals with the use of a learning log in an information systems security class. This technique supports the individual topic expert teaching tip contributed by Denise R. McGinnis. A learning log is a tightly focused academic journal that is created as the student becomes knowledgeable on an individually assigned topic. The log can serve as the basis for generating Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), support class discussion, and provide the basis for the creation of a class presentation and web site.

A Proximal Operator for Multispectral Phase Retrieval Problems [article]

Biel Roig-Solvas, Lee Makowski, Dana H. Brooks
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Proximal algorithms have gained popularity in recent years in large-scale and distributed optimization problems. One such problem is the phase retrieval problem, for which proximal operators have been proposed recently. The phase retrieval problem commonly refers to the task of recovering a target signal based on the magnitude of linear projections of that signal onto known vectors, usually under the presence of noise. A more general problem is the multispectral phase retrieval problem, where

We show that despite its non-convexity, all local minimizers are global minimizers, guaranteeing the optimality of simple descent techniques. An efficient linear time exact Newton method is proposed based on the structure of the problem's Hessian. Initialization criteria are discussed and the computational performance of the proposed algorithm is compared to that of traditional descent methods. The studied proximal operator can be used in a distributed and parallel scenarios using an ADMM scheme and allows for exploiting the spectral characteristics of the problem's measurement matrices, known in many physical sensing applications, in a way that is not possible with non-splitted optimization algorithms. The dependency of the proximal operator on the rank of these matrices, instead of their dimension, can greatly reduce the memory and computation requirements for problems of moderate to large size (N>10000) when these measurement matrices admit a low-rank representation.

Oryx callotis(Artiodactyla: Bovidae)

Dana N. Lee, Richard W. Dolman, David M. Leslie
2013 Mammalian Species  
Oryx callotis O. Thomas, 1982 (fringe-eared oryx) is a relatively large, long-bodied bovid, with an appropriate common name because of its distinguishing tufts of hair extending from the ends of the ears. It occupies arid lands in Kenya and Tanzania. O. callotis can go up to a month without drinking water if succulent vegetation is available. Some herds have been semidomesticated, and 60% of the presumed 17,000 wild individuals exist in wildlife reserves, currently receiving some protection

2013 Mammalian Species  
Elaphodus cephalophus Milne-Edwards, 1872 (tufted deer) is usually considered polytypic with 3 or 4 recognized subspecies, depending on the source. It is a small dark chocolate-brown deer typified by a tuft of hair on its crown, sharp upper canines that protrude downward from under the upper lip, and rudimentary antlers on males; it is similar to muntjacs, to which it is closely related. E. cephalophus occurs in humid, montane forests at elevations of 300-4,750 m in southwestern through

2011 Blood  
Th17 cells, in addition to their proinflammatory functions, have been recognized as potent inducers of angiogenesis in autoimmune diseases and malignancies. In the present study, we demonstrate distinct mechanisms by which IL-17 induces lymphangiogenesis. Using the mouse cornea micropocket and cell culture assays, our data demonstrate that IL-17 directly promotes growth of lymphatic vessels by inducing increased expression of prolymphangiogenic VEGF-D and proliferation of lymphatic endothelial

Furthermore, in vivo blockade of IL-17 in a preclinical model of Th17dominant autoimmune ocular disease demonstrates a significant reduction in the corneal lymphangiogenesis and in the progression of clinical disease. Taken together, our findings demonstrate a novel prolymphangiogenic function for Th17/IL-17, indicating that IL-17 can promote the progression and amplification of immunity in part through its induction of lymphangiogenesis.

2021 Nature Communications  
AbstractControlling ion transport in nanofluidics is fundamental to water purification, bio-sensing, energy storage, energy conversion, and numerous other applications. For any of these, it is essential to design nanofluidic channels that are stable in the liquid phase and enable specific ions to pass. A human neuron is one such system, where electrical signals are transmitted by cation transport for high-speed communication related to neuromorphic computing. Here, we present a concept of

The confined nanochannel is robust in liquids as in neuron cells, enabling steady-state ion diffusion for hundred of hours and exhibiting ion selectivity of 95.8%, energy conversion efficiency of 41.4%, and power density of 5.26 W/m2. This fundamental understanding and rational design strategy can enable previously unrealisable applications of passive-type large-scale power generation.

2012 Ophthalmology (Rochester, Minn.)  
Objective-To investigate the expression level of prostaglandins (PGs) and their de novo synthesis in dry eye (DE) disease. Design-Cross-sectional case-control study and in vivo mouse experimental study. Participants-Forty-six eyes from 23 DE patients and 33 eyes from 17 age-and sex-matched controls were studied. Also, DE-induced murine eyes were compared with control eyes. Methods-Patients completed a symptom questionnaire using a 100-mm visual analog scale (VAS). Nanoliquid chromatography

One week after induction, enzyme expressions of cyclooxygenase-1, cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), PG E synthase (PGES), and PG D synthase (PGDS) in the lacrimal glands, meibomian glands, and corneas were examined using immunohistochemistry and quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR). Main Outcome Measures-The mean PGE2 and PGD2 levels in the tears of DE patients were measured and compared with symptom severity scores. Immunohistochemistry staining patterns and qRT-PCR data of DE mice were quantified. Results- The mean PGE2 level in the tears of DE patients (2.72±3.42 ng/ml) was significantly higher than that in the control group (0.88±0.83 ng/ml; P = 0.003). However, the mean PGD2 level in the tears of DE patients (0.11 ±0.22 ng/ml) was significantly lower (0.91 ±3.28 ng/ml; P = 0.028). The mean PGE2-to-PGD2 ratio correlated strongly with VAS scoring (P = 0.008). In DE mice, COX-2 mRNA was significantly higher in ocular surface tissue and lacrimal glands. Furthermore, PGES mRNA was significantly higher in ocular surface tissue, whereas PGDS mRNA was decreased. Immunohistochemistry staining showed elevated COX-2 expression in the
