‘In search of a gender neutral glacier’ – ‘Paper proposes a feminist glaciology framework’ 

Climate Depot - Fri, 06/23/2017 - 10:29
in search of a gender neutral glacier http://climatechangepredictions.org/uncategorized/8341 A critical but overlooked aspect of the human dimensions of glaciers and global change research is the relationship between gender and glaciers.

Counteracting dysfunction of regulatory T cells in organ transplantation [Commentaries]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Thu, 06/22/2017 - 13:12
Regulatory T cells (Tregs) are central in controlling adaptive immunity. The importance of Tregs in preventing autoimmunity has been demonstrated both in experimental models and in patients with mutations in the essential transcription factor Foxp3 (1). This has now been translated to strategies that can exploit this capacity in clinical...

Confined in-fiber solidification and structural control of silicon and silicon-germanium microparticles [Applied Physical Sciences]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Thu, 06/22/2017 - 13:12
Crystallization of microdroplets of molten alloys could, in principle, present a number of possible morphological outcomes, depending on the symmetry of the propagating solidification front and its velocity, such as axial or spherically symmetric species segregation. However, because of thermal or constitutional supercooling, resulting droplets often only display dendritic morphologies....

Evolution of nonspectral rhodopsin function at high altitudes [Evolution]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Thu, 06/22/2017 - 13:12
High-altitude environments present a range of biochemical and physiological challenges for organisms through decreases in oxygen, pressure, and temperature relative to lowland habitats. Protein-level adaptations to hypoxic high-altitude conditions have been identified in multiple terrestrial endotherms; however, comparable adaptations in aquatic ectotherms, such as fishes, have not been as extensively...
