Strömgren photometry of 40 Harmonia, 45 Eugenia and 52 Europa

The Asteroids 40 Harmonia, 45 Eugenia and 52 Europa have been studied photometrically. From their lightcurves synodic periods of , and , and maximum amplitudes of , and , have been deduced for 40 Harmonia, 45 Eugenia and 52 Europa, respectively. Improved solutions for the sense of rotation, sidereal period, pole orientation and shape properties are proposed.

A revised catalogue of δ Sct stars

An extensive and up-dated list of δ Sct stars is presented here. More than 500 papers, published during the last few years, have been revised and 341 new variables have been added to our last list, six years ago. This catalogue is intended to be a comprehensive review on the observational characteristics of all the δ Sct stars known until now, including stars contained in earlier...

The effect of sodium/glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibition on the urinary proteome

Treatment with empagliflozin, an inhibitor of the sodium/glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2), is associated with slower progression of diabetic kidney disease. In this analysis, we explored the hypothesis that empagliflozin may have an impact on urinary peptides associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD). In this post-hoc, exploratory analysis, we investigated urine samples...

μ Opioid Receptor Expression after Morphine Administration Is Regulated by miR-212/132 Cluster

Since their discovery, miRNAs have emerged as a promising therapeutical approach in the treatment of several diseases, as demonstrated by miR-212 and its relation to addiction. Here we prove that the miR-212/132 cluster can be regulated by morphine, through the activation of mu opioid receptor (Oprm1). The molecular pathways triggered after morphine administration also induce...

ZnO nanoparticles (ZnO-NPs) and their antifungal activity against coffee fungus Erythricium salmonicolor

In this work, a methodology of synthesis was designed to obtain ZnO nanoparticles (ZnO NPs) in a controlled and reproducible manner. The nanoparticles obtained were characterized using infrared spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Also, we determined the antifungal capacity in vitro of zinc oxide nanoparticles synthesized, examining their...

Acceleration strategies for elastic full waveform inversion workflows in 2D and 3D

Full waveform inversion (FWI) is one of the most challenging procedures to obtain quantitative information of the subsurface. For elastic inversions, when both compressional and shear velocities have to be inverted, the algorithmic issue becomes also a computational challenge due to the high cost related to modelling elastic rather than acoustic waves. This shortcoming has been...

The photon magnetic moment problem revisited

The photon magnetic moment for radiation propagating in magnetized vacuum is defined as a pseudotensor quantity, proportional to the external electromagnetic field tensor. After expanding the eigenvalues of the polarization operator in powers of \(k^2\), we obtain approximate dispersion equations (cubic in \(k^2\)), and analytic solutions for the photon magnetic moment, valid for...

Addressing disparities in academic medicine: what of the minority tax?

Background The proportion of black, Latino, and Native American faculty in U.S. academic medical centers has remained almost unchanged over the last 20 years. Some authors credit the "minority tax"—the burden of extra responsibilities placed on minority faculty in the name of diversity. This tax is in reality very complex, and a major source of inequity in academic medicine...

De La Romana a Washington Heights: el azar trashumante de Josefina Báez

Uno de los aportes artísticos más osados que ha dado la diáspora en cuanto a la teorización de lo dominicano se refiere es Dominicanish de Josefina Báez. Publicado en el año 2000, Dominicanish es un texto armado a partir de la obra poética de Báez y adaptado para el teatro por el dramaturgo y director Claudio Mir. Se trata de un texto rico en matices, intensidad y cruces...

Conventional Matrices Loaded Onto a Graphene Layer Enhances MALDI-TOF/TOF Signal: Its Application to Improve Detection of Phosphorylated Peptides

This is the first study where graphene is used as a MALDI adjuvant in combination with the traditional matrix α-cyano-4-hydroxycinnamic acid (CHCA) to improve the signal intensity of peptide samples. Use of this amended matrix not only leads to increased signals but also to a higher number of peaks detected in complex samples. Additionally, the use of graphene has a stabilizing...

Estimation of salt intake assessed by urinary excretion of sodium over 24 h in Spanish subjects aged 7–11 years

Purpose High intake of salt is associated with early development of cardiovascular risk factors (e.g., hypertension, obesity). In “developed” countries, individuals frequently exceed dietary recommendations for salt intake. Taking into account the limited data on sodium intake by 24-h excretion in urine in schoolchildren, we wished to determine baseline salt intake in Spanish...

Autophagy Protects from Trastuzumab-Induced Cytotoxicity in HER2 Overexpressing Breast Tumor Spheroids

Multicellular tumor spheroids represent a 3D in vitro model that mimics solid tumor essential properties including assembly and development of extracellular matrix and nutrient, oxygen and proliferation gradients. In the present study, we analyze the impact of 3D spatial organization of HER2-overexpressing breast cancer cells on the response to Trastuzumab. We cultured human...

Cost-Effectiveness Analysis of Mometasone Furoate Versus Beclomethasone Dipropionate for the Treatment of Pediatric Allergic Rhinitis in Colombia

Introduction Allergic rhinitis (AR) is one of the most common chronic respiratory diseases observed in the pediatric population, producing a significant morbidity, and an economic burden due to direct medical costs and indirect costs. Despite the high prevalence of AR in children and the importance of the use of topical intranasal corticosteroids for its treatment, comparative...

Whole-genome expression profile in zebrafish embryos after chronic exposure to morphine: identification of new genes associated with neuronal function and mu opioid receptor expression

Background A great number of studies have investigated changes induced by morphine exposure in gene expression using several experimental models. In this study, we examined gene expression changes during chronic exposure to morphine during maturation and differentiation of zebrafish CNS. Results Microarray analysis showed 254 genes whose expression was identified as different by...

Glucose and Fructose Have Sugar-Specific Effects in Both Liver and Skeletal Muscle In Vivo: A Role for Liver Fructokinase

We examined glucose and fructose effects on serine phosphorylation levels of a range of proteins in rat liver and muscle cells. For this, healthy adult rats were subjected to either oral glucose or fructose loads. A mini-array system was utilized to determine serine phosphorylation levels of liver and skeletal muscle proteins. A glucose oral load of 125 mg/100 g body weight (G 1...

Assessment of Acropora palmata in the Mesoamerican Reef System

The once-dominant shallow reef-building coral Acropora palmata has suffered drastic geographical declines in the wider Caribbean from a disease epidemic that began in the late 1970s. At present there is a lack of quantitative data to determine whether this species is recovering over large spatial scales. Here, we use quantitative surveys conducted in 107 shallow-water reef sites...
