Upper lethal temperatures of Northern Bobwhite embryos and the thermal properties of their eggs (open access)

Upper lethal temperatures of Northern Bobwhite embryos and the thermal properties of their eggs

This article explores the upper lethal temperature for Bobwhite eggs. Results find that thermal tolerances of Northern Bobwhite embryos are high, indicating an adaptation to the naturally occurring temperature extremes in the Bobwhite's environment. However, the results also indicate that high temperatures could have plausibly contributed to the population decline observed in the Bobwhite's semi-arid range.

Low-temperature UV photoluminescence of ion beam synthesized Si nanoclusters embedded in Si (open access)

Low-temperature UV photoluminescence of ion beam synthesized Si nanoclusters embedded in Si

This article explores Ultraviolet (UV) photoluminescence (PL) data taken on a double Au implanted Si matrix and studied over a wide temperature range of 28-220K. The results of this study at lower temperatures indicate the emission to be coming from Si nanoclusters (NCs) embedded in the matrix.

In situ cardiac performance of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) at cold temperatures: long-term acclimation, acute thermal challenge and the role of adrenaline (open access)

In situ cardiac performance of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) at cold temperatures: long-term acclimation, acute thermal challenge and the role of adrenaline

This article measures the cardiac performance of Newfoundland Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua). The results: (1) show that maximum performance of the isolated cod heart is not compromised by exposure to cold temperatures; and (2) support data from other studies, which show that, in contrast to salmonids, cod cardiac performance/myocardial contractility is not dependent upon humoral adrenergic stimulation.

Cardiac and metabolic physiology of early larval zebrafish (Danio rerio) reflects parental swimming stamina (open access)

Cardiac and metabolic physiology of early larval zebrafish (Danio rerio) reflects parental swimming stamina

This article explores swimming stamina in fish. Mature adult zebrafish (Danio rerio) were subjected to a swimming performance test and then bred within performance groups to discover if enhanced swimming stamina in offspring appears only in juveniles/adults, or if these traits appear as early as larvae.

Isorhamnetin Inhibits Proliferation and Invasion and Induces Apoptosis through the Modulation of Peroxisome Proliferator-activated Receptor γ Activation Pathway in Gastric Cancer (open access)

Isorhamnetin Inhibits Proliferation and Invasion and Induces Apoptosis through the Modulation of Peroxisome Proliferator-activated Receptor γ Activation Pathway in Gastric Cancer

Article investigating the potential effects of isorhamnetin (IH), a 3′-O-methylated metabolite of quercetin on the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPAR-γ) signaling cascade using proteomics technology platform, GC cell lines, and xenograft mice model. The study y proposes a novel agent for gastric cancer treatment.
