The genus Sarcohyla is composed by 24 species endemic to México. Despite the large number of phylogenetic studies focusing on the family Hylidae, the relationships among the species of Sarcohyla are still poorly known, and the scarce numbers of specimens and tissue samples available for some of the species has hampered an appropriate phylogenetic analysis. We present the most comprehensive molecular phylogenetic study of Sarcohyla to date. We included 17 species of the genus Sarcohyla using data from two mitochondrial (ND1 and 12S) and three nuclear genes (Rag-1, Rhod, and POMc)...

The objective of this study was to delineate the effects of different coffee processing residues on the anaerobic microbes and corresponding digestion performance. The results elucidated that mucilage-rich feed enhanced the accumulation of methanogens, which consequently led to better digestion performance of biogas production. Fifty percent more methane and up to 3 times more net energy (heat and electricity) output were achieved by the digestion of the mucilage-rich feed (M3). The microbial community and statistical analyses further elucidated that different residues in the feed had significant impact on microbial distribution and correspondingly influenced the digestion performance...

Symptom checkers are software tools that allow users to submit a set of symptoms and receive advice related to them in the form of a diagnosis list, health information or triage. The heterogeneity of their potential users and the number of different components in their user interfaces can make testing with end-users unaffordable. We designed and executed a two-phase method to test the respiratory diseases module of the symptom checker Erdusyk. Phase I consisted of an online test with a large sample of users (n = 53)...

Baculoviruses are a broad group of viruses infecting insects, predominately of the order Lepidoptera. They are used worldwide as biological insecticides and as expression vectors to produce recombinant proteins. Baculoviruses replicate in their host, although several cell lines have been developed for in vitro replication. Nevertheless, replication of baculoviruses in cell culture involves the generation of defective viruses with a decrease in productivity and virulence. Transcriptional studies of the Spodoptera exigua multiple nucleopolyhedrovirus (SeMNPV) and the Autographa californica multiple nucleopolyhedrovirus (AcMNPV) infective process revealed differences in the expression patterns when the virus replicated under in vitro (Se301 cells) or in vivo (S...

Inhibition of the AAA ATPase, p97, was recently shown to be a novel method for targeting the ubiquitin proteasome system (UPS) and CB-5083, a first in class inhibitor of p97, has demonstrated broad antitumor activity in a range of both hematological and solid tumor models. Here, we show that CB-5083 has robust activity against multiple myeloma (MM) cell lines and a number of in vivo MM models. Treatment with CB-5083 is associated with accumulation of ubiquitinated proteins, induction of the unfolded protein response (UPR) and apoptosis...
