Studies of altitudinal changes in phenotype and genotype can complement studies of latitudinal patterns and provide evidence of natural selection in response to climatic factors. In Drosophila melanogaster, latitudinal variation in phenotype and genotype has been well studied, but altitudinal patterns have rarely been investigated. We studied populations from six different altitudes varying between 35m and 2173m in the Firtina Valley in northeastern part of Turkey to evaluate clinal trends in lifespan under experimental conditions...

We describe 2 paediatric patients who developed large orbital conjunctival epithelium-lined inclusion cysts postsurgery. Case 1 underwent Ahmed glaucoma valve implant surgery 8 months ago and case 2 underwent strabismus surgery 7 years ago. Both cases had either symptomatic strabismus or a mass causing some degree of proptosis or incomitance due to lesions in the intraorbital space. Following total excision of the cysts all associated symptoms were resolved. Conjunctival cysts following ocular surgery can develop anywhere in the anterior segment; however, large orbital cysts following anterior segment surgery are quite rare...

To design new compounds suitable as starting points for anticancer drug development, we have synthesized a novel series of benzoxazoles with pharmaceutically advantageous piperazine and fluorine moieties attached to them. The newly synthesized benzoxazoles and their corresponding precursors were evaluated for cytotoxicity on human A-549 lung carcinoma cells and non-cancer HepaRG hepatocyes. Some of these new benzoxazoles show potential anticancer activity, while two of the intermediates show lung cancer selective properties at low concentrations where healthy cells are unaffected, indicating a selectivity window for anticancer compounds...

Shape-programmable matter is a class of active materials whose geometry can be controlled to potentially achieve mechanical functionalities beyond those of traditional machines. Among these materials, magnetically actuated matter is particularly promising for achieving complex time-varying shapes at small scale (overall dimensions smaller than 1 cm). However, previous work can only program these materials for limited applications, as they rely solely on human intuition to approximate the required magnetization profile and actuating magnetic fields for their materials...
