In vivo functional properties of juxtaglomerular neurons in the mouse olfactory bulb
(Frontiers Media S.A., 2013-02-21)
Juxtaglomerular neurons represent one of the largest cellular populations in the mammalian olfactory bulb yet their role for signal processing remains unclear. We used two-photon imaging and electrophysiological recordings ...
Minimum entropy decomposition : unsupervised oligotyping for sensitive partitioning of high-throughput marker gene sequences
(Nature Publishing Group, 2014-10-17)
Molecular microbial ecology investigations often employ large marker gene datasets, for example, ribosomal RNAs, to represent the occurrence of single-cell genomes in microbial communities. Massively parallel DNA sequencing ...
Intentional versus unintentional nitrogen use in the United States : trends, efficiency and implications
Human actions have both intentionally and unintentionally altered the global economy of nitrogen (N), with both positive and negative consequences for human health and welfare, the environment and climate change. Here we ...
Toward a predictive understanding of Earth’s microbiomes to address 21st century challenges
(American Society for Microbiology, 2016-05-13)
Microorganisms have shaped our planet and its inhabitants for over 3.5 billion years. Humankind has had a profound influence on the biosphere, manifested as global climate and land use changes, and extensive urbanization ...

Endoplasmic reticulum targeted GFP reveals ER organization in tobacco NT-1 cells during cell division
The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) of plant cells undergoes a drastic reorganization during cell division. In tobacco NT-1 cells that stably express a GFP construct targeted to the ER, we have mapped the reorganization of ...
RCC1-dependent activation of Ran accelerates cell cycle and DNA repair, inhibiting DNA damage–induced cell senescence
(American Society for Cell Biology, 2016-02-10)
The coordination of cell cycle progression with the repair of DNA damage supports the genomic integrity of dividing cells. The function of many factors involved in DNA damage response (DDR) and the cell cycle depends on ...
Fiddler on the roof : a northern range extension for the marsh fiddler crab Uca pugnax
A northern range extension is presented here for the marsh fiddler crab Uca pugnax. In summer 2014, adult crabs were found as far north as Hampton, New Hampshire (42.924428, -70.820517), which is 80 km north of its previously ...
Dendritic signals from rat hippocampal CA1 pyramidal neurons during coincident pre- and post-synaptic activity : a combined voltage- and calcium-imaging study
The non-linear and spatially inhomogeneous interactions of dendritic membrane potential signals that represent the first step in the induction of activity dependent long-term synaptic plasticity are not fully understood, ...
Bryostatin enhancement of memory in Hermissenda
(Marine Biological Laboratory, 2006-06)
Bryostatin, a potent agonist of protein kinase C (PKC), when administered to Hermissenda was found to affect acquisition of an associative learning paradigm. Low bryostatin concentrations (0.1 to 0.5 ng/ml) enhanced memory ...
