Low molecular weight signaling compounds (LMWC) are important players in regulating various aspects of Streptomyces biology. Their exact roles in certain strain will ultimately depend on overall configuration of regulatory network and thus cannot be predicted on basis of in silico studies. Here, we explored S. ghanaensis gene SSFG_07725 (afsA gh ) presumably involved in initial steps of formation of γ-butyrolactone LMWC. Disruption of afsA gh impaired aerial mycelium formation and increased the transcription of pleiotropic regulatory gene adpA gh , whereas level of moenomycin production remained virtually unaffected...

Kudzu ( Pueraria montana var. lobata (Willd.) Sanjappa & Pradeep) is a perennial leguminous vine, and its root and flower have been used for herbal medicine in Asia for a long time. Most dietary flavonoids are reported to be concentrated in its root, not in its aerial parts including leaves. In this study, we investigated whether kudzu leaf and its major constituent, robinin (kaempferol-3- O -robinoside-7- O -rhanmoside) possessed anti-inflammatory activity. To test this hypothesis, we used peritoneal macrophages isolated from BALB/c mice and stimulated the cells with lipopolysaccharide (LPS) or LPS plus interferon (IFN)-γ...

Background: Sciuromorpha (squirrels and close relatives) are diverse in terms of body size and locomotor behavior. Individual species are specialized to perform climbing, gliding or digging behavior, the latter being the result of multiple independent evolutionary acquisitions. Each lifestyle involves characteristic loading patterns acting on the bones of sciuromorphs. Trabecular bone, as part of the bone inner structure, adapts to such loading patterns. This network of thin bony struts is subject to bone modeling, and therefore reflects habitual loading throughout lifetime...

Streptomyces coelicolor A3 (2) is a filamentously growing, spore-forming, obligately aerobic actinobacterium that uses both a copper- aa3 - type cytochrome c oxidase and a cytochrome bd oxidase to respire oxygen. Using defined knock-out mutants we demonstrated that either of these terminal oxidases was capable of allowing the bacterium to grow and complete its developmental cycle. The genes encoding the bcc complex and the aa3 oxidase are clustered at a single locus. Using western blot analyses we showed that the bcc-aa3 oxidase branch is more prevalent than the bd oxidase in spores...

As a continuation of searching for phytoconstituents that act as promising agents for antimicrobial therapy, rare coumarins were isolated from fruits of Peucedanum luxurians and tested. In a first step, the content of major compounds in the aerial parts and fruits of P. luxurians were compared. The results clearly showed that the fruits with dichloromethane as a solvent yielded, in most cases, higher concentrations of almost all the analyzed coumarins than the aerial parts, with peucedanin detected as the most abundant compound with a concentration of 4563...

Two new flavonoid-triterpene saponin meroterpenoids, clinoposides G (1) and H (2) were isolated from the aerial parts of Clinopodium chinense (Benth.) O. Kuntze. Their structures were elucidated through spectroscopic and electronic circular dichroism (ECD) analyses. Compounds 1 and 2 were evaluated for their protective effects against anoxia/reoxygenation(A/R)-induced injury in H9c2 cells. A/R treatment severely injured the H9c2 cells, which was accompanied by apoptosis. Both 1 and 2 pretreatment significantly inhibited cell injury and apoptosis, improved mitochondrial membrane potential, increased activities of antioxidant enzymes, and reduced the levels of the inflammatory cytokines...

Historic aerial images are invaluable sources of aid to archaeological research. Often collected with large-format photogrammetric quality cameras, these images are potential archives of multidimensional data that can be used to recover information about historic landscapes that have been lost to modern development. However, a lack of camera information for many historic images coupled with physical degradation of their media has often made it difficult to compute geometrically rigorous 3D content from such imagery...

In present work, the chemical composition of the essential oils obtained from dried flowering aerial parts of Teucrium hircanicum L. (Labiatae) originated from ten wild populations in Iran was analyzed by a GC-FID and GC/MS system. The oil yields varied from 0.04% to 0.1%. A total of thirty-two compounds representing 67.6-97.7% of the oil were identified. The essential oil was found to be rich in sesquiterpene hydrocarpons (E)-α-bergamotene (17.5-86.9%) and (E)-β-farnesene (0.5-21.4%). Of the total identified compounds, sesquiterpene hydrocarpons (36...

The use of barite (BaSO4) in drilling fluids for oil and gas activities makes barium a potential contaminant in case of spills onto flooded soils, where low redox conditions may increase barium sulfate solubility. In order to select plants able to remove barium in such scenarios, the following species were evaluated on barium phytoextraction capacity: Brachiaria arrecta, Cyperus papyrus, Eleocharis acutangula, E. interstincta, Nephrolepsis cf. rivularis, Oryza sativa IRGA 424, O. sativa BRS Tropical, Paspalum conspersum, and Typha domingensis...

Distributed networks of stationary instruments provide high temporal scope (i.e., range/resolution) observations but are spatially limited as a set of point measurements. Measurement similarity between points typically decays with distance, which is used to set interpolation distances. The importance of analyzing spatiotemporal data at equivalent spatial and temporal scales has been identified but no standard procedure is used to interpolate space using temporally-indexed observations. Using concurrent mobile and stationary active acoustic, fish density data from a tidal energy site in Puget Sound, WA, USA, six methods are compared to estimate the range at which stationary measurements can be spatially interpolated...

Birds, particularly raptors, are believed to forage primarily using visual cues. However, raptor foraging tactics are highly diverse - from chasing mobile prey to scavenging - which may reflect adaptations of their visual systems. To investigate this, we studied the visual field configuration of 15 species of diurnal Accipitriformes that differ in such tactics, first focusing on the binocular field and blind area by using a single traits approach, and then exploring the shape of the binocular field with morphometric approaches...

The use of synthetic food additive and the appearance of antibiotic resistance are at the basis of important human health problems. The substitution of synthetic compounds with new natural substances extracted from plants or microorganisms is therefore the ideal solution to this scourge. The objective of this work was to evaluate the phyto-constituents (polyphenols, flavonoids and condensed tannins), and to test the biological activities (antioxidant, antibacterial and antiviral) of the Ajuga iva (L) aerial part extracts...

Organ size regulation is dependent on the precise spatial and temporal regulation of cell proliferation and cell expansion. A number of transcription factors have been identified that play a key role in the determination of aerial lateral organ size, but their functional relationship to various chromatin modifiers has not been well understood. To understand how leaf size is regulated, we previously isolated the oligocellula1 ( oli1 ) mutant of Arabidopsis thaliana that develops smaller first leaves than the wild type (WT) mainly due to a reduction in the cell number...

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are rising in popularity for wildlife monitoring, but direct recordings of animal vocalizations have not yet been accomplished, likely due to the noise generated by the UAV. Echolocating bats, especially Tadarida brasiliensis, are good candidates for UAV recording due to their high-speed, high-altitude flight. Here, we use a UAV to record the signals of bats during morning roost re-entry. We designed a UAV to block the noise of the propellers from the receiving microphone, and report on the characteristics of bioacoustic recordings from a UAV...
