Free to read: Water or ice? – the challenge for invertebrate cold survival

Posted on 16. April, 2014.

Some insects freeze, others do not. Some insects die when frozen, others do not. This encapsulates the problem facing insects and other invertebrates living in cold environments in which there is a potential to freeze. Nature has chosen not to solve the problem in a single or simple way – a wide variety of adaptations has evolved to cope with cold stress in many different environments.

A new alkaloid from the mycelium of Inonotus obliquus

Posted on 11. April, 2014.

Inonotus obliquus, a white rot fungus that belongs to the family Hymenochaetaceae (Basidiomycetes), is mainly distributed in Europe, Asia, and North America. It has been used for the treatment of gastrointestinal cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes since the 16th century in Russia, Poland and the Baltic countries and has been reported to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, immunomodulatory and hepatoprotective effects.

Effect of organic amendments on phytoavailability of nickel and growth of berseem(Trifolium alexandrinum) under nickel contaminated soil conditions

Posted on 28. March, 2014.

Since the green revolution, man-induced activities have redistributed many heavy metals from the earth’s crust to all environmental compartments. Therefore, environmental contamination by heavy metals has become a growing environmental risk at a global scale.

On the chemistry of inorganic free radicals in cloud water.

Posted on 27. March, 2014.

Cloud water droplets are formed by the condensation of water on to aerosol particles, known as cloud condensation nuclei, which occurs when the relative humidity in an ascending mass of air exceeds the saturation level due to adiabatic cooling. The chemical composition of cloud droplets has been the subject of several field studies in which rainwater is collected and analysed [1,2].

From the Science Reviews archive: UV radiation-induced enterobacterial responses, other processes that influence UV tolerance and likely environmental significance

Posted on 25. March, 2014.

The ability of enterobacteria to become UV-tolerant is important because such tolerance may enable organisms to resist irradiation in the environment, in water treatment, in shell-fish, in stages of food processing, and at locations in the domestic, commercial and hospital environment.

Non-classical signalling of growth hormone in the chick neural retina?

Posted on 24. March, 2014.

Signalling normally involves the interaction of a ligand with its receptor in target sites. 
This brief review focuses on the possibility that Growth Hormone (GH) in the neural retina of early chick embryos acts non-classically or via 'non-classical' GH-receptors.
