This data article contains analysis of data observed in E0 mice placed on high fat diet, and treated by intraperitoneal injections of either normal saline (control) or the heparanase inhibitor PG545, in two different doses. Mice body weights and food intake were measured weekly and analyzed data are presented in graphs. Data will be of value for further understanding the role of the enzyme heparanase in controlling food intake and body weight. For further interpretations, see please "Heparanase inhibition attenuates atherosclerosis progression and liver steatosis in E0 mice" (Muhammad et al...

Temperature and salinity data were recorded at the slope and outer shelf of the South Brazil Bight, from November 2014 to February 2015 using an Underwater Autonomous Vehicle, specifically, a glider. During the mission, the slope was crossed 10 times, reaching depths of up to 970 m and with a sampling rate of one record per second. The density profiles were also calculated to estimate interface levels between Tropical Water (TW) and South Atlantic Central Water (SACW), and between SACW and Antarctic Intermediate Water (AAIW)...

The data relates to the cohort of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) from the National Health Insurance Research Database of Taiwan, "Rhythm Control Better Prevents Stroke and Mortality than Rate Control Strategies in Patients with Atrial Fibrillation - A Nationwide Cohort Study" (Weng et al., in press). The AF patients might receive either rate or rhythm control strategy according to the medication used. The baseline medication in rate and rhythm control groups was included in this dataset. Multivariate Cox hazards regression model was used to evaluate the hazard ratio (HR) for major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE), including ischemic/hemorrhagic stroke and mortality in AF patients receiving rate or rhythm control...

This data article presents water stage, flow, and net primary productivity (NPP) data that were used to analyze the dynamics of the riverine dissolved organic carbon (DOC) dynamics in the Rukarara River watershed in Rwanda. We measured water stage data every 15 min and calculated daily averages used to estimate flow based on rating curves. The rating curves were produced using several measured contemporaneous water stage and flow data. Estimated flow data were used to calculate water dissolved organic carbon (DOC) loadings separate the total stream flow into quick and baseflow...

In this brief data article, we present the precise structural information, PARD data and thermographic analysis of the Tb-cluster. Detailed structure, luminescence and detecting properties were discussed in our previous study (Zhao et al., 2017) [1]. The data includes the coordination modes of ligand, PXRD patterns of these Ln-MOFs, thermostability, detailed bond lengths and bond angles of the Tb-cluster.

This work provides a protocol for the in vitro production of damaged DNA samples. In particular, heat-mediated hydrolysis of the samples at 70 °C in ultrapure water was performed in 1.7 mL Eppendorf tubes sealed by Parafilm for 0-36 h. The chemical/physical features of the resulting samples are described. After normalization of the qPCR data, these were compared with those obtained from samples treated for 0-10 h in a previous study.

Several wastes can be instrumental in the improvement of the mechanical properties of medium carbon steel when quenched. The quenching media employed such as coconut water (CW), pap water (PW) and spent engine oil (SPE) have been largely considered as wastes. The data in this article are related to the research article titled "Mechanical Properties Improvement Evaluation of Medium Carbon Steels Quenched in Different Media" (Ikubanni et al., 2017) [1]. The article provides information on the mechanical properties evaluation of medium carbon steel quenched in different media...

This data article describes how the Dig It Check It (DICI) model operates. The purpose of the DICI model is to assess the effectiveness of a specified subsurface sampling program in the detection of archaeological sites (Way and Tabrett, in press) [1]. Specifically, the aim of the model is to determine the inherent biases of the specified sampling program, i.e. what is the probability that sites of a certain size, density and density-distribution will be, or were, missed by the sampling program. A simulation is run which randomly places sites, the characteristics of which can be varied between runs, in a sampling area with the specified test-pit layout to determine the probability of overlap between the test-pits and sites with the selected characteristics...

The c-mos proto-oncogene was one of the first proto-oncogenes to be cloned. Apart from its role in meiosis, many efforts have been made to illuminate the mechanisms by which c-mos might acts as an oncogene. Increased Mos expression was found in most human tumor tissues. However, a detailed role of c-mos in tumor progression remains unknown. In this study, we analyzed online databases to find out the correlation between Mos expression and poor survival rates in human cancer patients. Then, we crossed c-mos knockout mice with Apc Min or Kras G12D mice to generate intestinal cancer model and lung cancer model, respectively...
