Cross-species utility of 22 microsatellite markers in the Melodious Warbler (Hippolais polyglotta)

Posted on 11. August, 2014.

The Melodious Warbler (Hippolais polyglotta) and the Icterine Warbler (H. icterina) are small, long distance migrating passerines breeding in open to semi-open scrublands or open woodland in the Western Palaearctic.


Free from the archives: The origin of life II: How did it begin?

Posted on 9. August, 2014.

The problem of how a mixture of chemicals can spontaneously transform themselves into even a simple living organism remains one of the great outstanding challenges to science. Various primordial soup theories have been proposed in which chemical self-organization brings about the required level of complexity.


Free from the archives - The origin of life I: When and where did it begin? 

Posted on 8. August, 2014.

For decades most scientists assumed that life emerged billions of years ago in a “primordial soup” somewhere on the Earth’s surface. Evidence is mounting, however, that life may have begun deep beneath the surface, perhaps near a volcanic ocean vent or even inside the hot crust itself. Since there are hints that life’s history on Earth extends back through the phase of massive cosmic bombardment, it may be that life started on Mars and came here later, perhaps inside rocks ejected from the Red Planet by large impacts.


Kinetic and mechanistic aspects of ligand substitution on cis- diaqua (cis-1,2-diaminocyclohexane)platinum(II) with three glycine-containing dipeptides

Posted on 7. August, 2014.

The discovery of cisplatin as an anticancer agent marks the beginning of the upsurge of interest in the use of metal complexes in cancer chemotherapy. However, cisplatin has a narrow spectrum of activity, and its clinical use is limited by undesirable side effects, including nephrotoxicity, ototoxicity, neurotoxicity, nausea, vomiting, and myelosuppression.

The mechanism of the reaction of the Tollens reagent - Download for free during the next 24 hours

Posted on 6. August, 2014.

The Tollens test for aldehydes has been used for over 100 years but no reason has been given for adding sodium hydroxide to the silver nitrate before the solution is cleared with ammonia. In this paper, a mechanism is proposed which explains why the addition of alkali makes the test much more sensitive.


Mercury contamination in five owl species from Iran

Posted on 5. August, 2014.

Mercury occurs naturally in the environment but anthropogenic sources, such as fossil fuel combustion, non-ferrous metal production and waste incineration, have been suggested to contribute significantly to the mercury contamination
