2018 Scandinavian Studies  
For reasons that will probably never be known, Jón Halldórsson's plans to write an autobiography never materialized.  ...  Frelsi, menning, framför is essentially the story of Jón Halldórsson (1838Halldórsson ( -1919)), who, in 1872, emigrated from Stóruvellir in Bárðardalur to the united States.  ...  Kirsten Wolf University of Wisconsin-Madison Downloaded from http://scholarlypublishingcollective.org/uip/ss/article-pdf/90/2/307/1081026/scanstud.90.2.0307.pdf by guest on 26 March 2022 Downloaded  ...

Limits in PMF of Teichmuller geodesics [article]

Jon Chaika, Howard Masur, Michael Wolf
2014 arXiv   pre-print
We consider the limit set in Thurston's compactification PMF of Teichmueller space of some Teichmueller geodesics defined by quadratic differentials with minimal but not uniquely ergodic vertical foliations. We show that a) there are quadratic differentials so that the limit set of the geodesic is a unique point, b) there are quadratic differentials so that the limit set is a line segment, c) there are quadratic differentials so that the vertical foliation is ergodic and there is a line segment

These give examples of divergent Teichmueller geodesics whose limit sets overlap and Teichmueller geodesics that stay a bounded distance apart but whose limit sets are not equal. A byproduct of our methods is a construction of a Teichmueller geodesic and a simple closed curve γ so that the hyperbolic length of the geodesic in the homotopy class of gamma varies between increasing and decreasing on an unbounded sequence of time intervals along the geodesic.

2020 Scientific Reports  
Otherwise, we did not find any effect of bear presence on wolf habitat selection, in contrast with our previous studies.  ...  Here, we applied resource selection functions and a multivariate approach to compare wolf habitat selection within home ranges of wolves that were either sympatric or allopatric with bears.  ...  The establishment of wolf pairs during the ongoing wolf population recovery, i.e., wolf 2 nd order habitat selection, has been affected positively by previous wolf presence and negatively by road density  ...

Wolf pair establishment was positively related to previous wolf presence and was negatively related to road density, distance to other wolf territories, and bear density.  ...  We took into account wolf-, habitat-, human-and brown bear (Ursus arctos)-related factors, because wolf expansion occurred within an area partially sympatric with bears.  ...  The Scandinavian wolf and bear projects (SKANDULV and SBBRP, respectively) have been funded by the Norwegian Environment Agency, the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, the Norwegian Research Council  ...

Editorial: Sulfation Pathways—There and Back Again

Jon Wolf Mueller, Abby C. Collier, Tarsis F. Gesteira
2022 Frontiers in Molecular Biosciences  
Sulfation Pathways are understood as the oxidative branch of sulfur metabolism (Günal et al., 2019) . Core to sulfation pathways is sulfate activation, the transfer of sulfate to biological acceptor molecules and its dynamic cleavage in a spatially and temporally specific manner. The biochemical problem of sulfate activation is evident even in geological specimens-gypsum may be observed in orthopedic casts, an example of the highly inert sulfate ion (Figure 1 ). A significant amount of energy
more » ... needed to turn biological sulfate into PAPS (3′-phosphoadenosine-5′-phospho-sulfate), the active sulfate form. The many and diverse sulfation acceptor molecules in biology dictate the molecular functions of ubiquitous sulfation pathways. Recent publications have highlighted doubly sulfated steroids (Lightning et al., 2021) as well as sulfo-conjugated vitamin D species (Jenkinson et al., 2022) . This Research Topic focused on Advances in Sulfation Pathways Research features nine research articles and three reviews, authored by 63 individual scientists, significantly advancing the field of Sulfation Pathways, highlighted within the following paragraphs: Research into sulfation pathways always relied on state-of-the-art analytical methods. Hence, we are pleased to present novel mass-spectrometry-based ways of profiling sulfated metabolites in urine by Fitzgerald et al. Developing mass spectrometry methods is impossible however without having the respective pure compounds readily at hand. In this regard, Alshehri et al. report a novel sulfation strategy to prepare steroid sulfates and isotopically labeled variations thereof, certainly an innovation with great importance for the field. Whenever coming from a genomic viewpoint, it may be necessary to characterize a sulfation enzyme with regards to its activity. With this in mind, Sun et al. have prepared a manuscript on optimized sulfotransferase assays. Sulfation impacts greatly on steroidogenesis-sulfated steroids may represent transport forms and/or modulate downstream processing (Foster and Mueller, 2018) . Two studies by Pavlič et al. and De Almeida Da Costa et al. independently provide experimental evidence that endometrial tissues can generate estrogens from circulating steroid sulfates. Sulfation of steroids predominantly occurs within the cytosol and sulfated steroids then need dedicated transporters to enter circulation and for the uptake into target tissues. Karakus et al. provide an in-depth study about the steroid sulfate uptake transporter SOAT (SLC10A6) in adipose tissue that illustrates this well. When studying sulfated steroids, not only are circulating steroids important, but also sulfated neuro-steroids. This Research Topic features two review articles about steroid sulfation in neurodegenerative diseases by Vitku et al. and during neurodevelopment by Clarke et al. Fascinating topics that will enable exciting discoveries in future, with great potential for the development of novel therapeutics.
