Seed traits are related to several ecological attributes of a plant species, including its distribution. While the storage physiology of desiccation-sensitive seeds has drawn considerable attention, their ecology has remained sidelined, particularly how the strong seasonality of precipitation in monsoonal climate affects their temporal and spatial distribution. We compiled data on seed mass, seed desiccation behavior, seed shedding, and germination periodicity in relation to monsoon and altitude for 198 native tree species of Indian Himalayas and adjoining plains to find out (1) the adaptive significance of seed mass and seed desiccation behavior in relation to monsoon and (2) the pattern of change in seed mass in relation to altitude, habitat moisture, and succession...

Many newly developed active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) have very low solubility in aqueous media. The preparation of solid dispersions (SDs) is one way of avoiding this problem. However, compound wettability and thus solubility are influenced by surface energy. In this study, we used inverse gas chromatography (IGC) to evaluate the surface energies of prepared SDs, and compared them with those obtained for physical mixtures (PMs). SDs containing different weight ratios of crystalline acetaminophen and one of three polymers (Kollidon(®) 12 PF, Kollidon(®) VA 64 or Soluplus(®)) were prepared by the melt-quenching of corresponding PMs...

INTRODUCTION: It is estimated that up to 75% of premenopausal women experience at least one premenstrual symptom and 8-20% meet clinical criteria for premenstrual syndrome. Premenstrual syndrome substantially reduces quality of life for many women of reproductive age, with pharmaceutical treatments having limited efficacy and substantial side effects. Physical activity has been recommended as a method of reducing menstrual symptom severity. However, this recommendation is based on relatively little evidence, and the relationship between physical activity, premenstrual symptoms, and premenstrual syndrome remains unclear...

BACKGROUND: The quest for an effective system capable of monitoring and predicting the trends of epidemic diseases is a critical issue for communities worldwide. With the prevalence of Internet access, more and more researchers today are using data from both search engines and social media to improve the prediction accuracy. In particular, a prediction market system (PMS) exploits the wisdom of crowds on the Internet to effectively accomplish relatively high accuracy. OBJECTIVE: This study presents the architecture of a PMS and demonstrates the matching mechanism of logarithmic market scoring rules...

SHANK3 is a synaptic scaffolding protein localized in the postsynaptic density and has a crucial role in synaptogenesis and neural physiology. Deletions and point mutations in SHANK3 cause Phelan-McDermid Syndrome (PMS), and have also been implicated in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and intellectual disabilities, leading to the hypothesis that reduced SHANK3 expression impairs basic brain functions that are important for social communication and cognition. Several mouse models of Shank3 deletions have been generated, varying in the specific domain deleted...

Listening to music through a portable personal music system (PMS) is a growing trend, especially among the youth. The preferred listening level in such kinds of PMS has been reported to cross the safe levels and its impact on the auditory system was demonstrated in several previous investigations. Owing to the commonality in several aspects between the auditory and the vestibular systems, it appears likely that the deleterious effects of PMS use could also be impinging on the vestibular system, which has never been investigated...

This work demonstrates the preparation of graphene-oxide (GO)-Fe(3+) hybrids nanosheets and their high bleaching efficiency on the dye "Reactive Red 120 (RR 120)" by using sonocatalytic degradation. Sonocatalytic degradation was enhanced by using oxidants like PMS (peroxomonosulphate), PDS (peroxodisulphate), H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) and KIO4 (potassium periodate). Our observations manifested that the degradation of the dye "RR 120" was found to be multiplied by addition of oxidants in the order of PMS>H2O2>PDS>KIO4...

William K. Gregory was one of the most influential authors defending the existence of an evolutionary trend in vertebrates from a higher degree of polyisomerism (more polyisomeric or 'serial' anatomical structures arranged along any body axis) to cases of anisomerism (specialization or loss of at least some original polyisomeric structures). Anisomerism was the subject of much interest during the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries, particularly due to the influence of the Romantic German School and the notion of 'primitive archetype' and because it was conceptually linked to other crucial biological issues (e...

Polymeric micelles provide a promising platform for improving oral absorption of poorly soluble drugs. However, improved understanding of how drug retention within the hydrophobic micelle core can reduce drug absorption is required. We designed supersaturated polymeric micelles (Super-PMs) to increase molecularly dissolved drug concentration and gain an insight into the effect of the degree of supersaturation on oral absorption of cyclosporine A (CsA) in rats. The drug release from Super-PMs increased with an increase in initial supersaturation degrees in micelles...

OBJECTIVE: Patient-reported outcome measures with reporting periods of a week or more are often used to evaluate the change of symptoms over time, but the accuracy of recall in the context of change is not well understood. This study examined whether temporal trends in symptoms that occur during the reporting period impact the accuracy of 7-day recall reports. METHODS: Women with premenstrual symptoms (n=95) completed daily reports of anger, depression, fatigue, and pain intensity for 4weeks, as well as 7-day recall reports at the end of each week...
