Yolk Bi-shell MnxCo1-xFe2O4 Hollow Microspheres and Their Embedded Form in Carbon for Highly Reversible Lithium Storage.

Yolk-shell hollow structure of transition metal oxides have many applications in lithium-ion batteries and catalysis. However, it is still a big challenge to fabricate uniform hollow microspheres with yolk bi-shell structure for mixed transition metal oxides and their supported or embedded forms in carbon microspheres with superior lithium storage properties. Here we report a new approach to the synthesis of manganese cobalt iron oxides/carbon (MnxCo1-xFe2O4 (0 ≤ x ≤ 1)) microspheres through carbonizati...

Yawning in Depression: Worth Looking Into.

Yawning often occurs during states of increased sleep propensity. Depression is associated with sleep problems and tiredness. The aim of this paper is to review the present knowledge about possible changes of yawning during an episode of major depression (MD) and to report data on yawning from an online depression forum comprising of 450 000 postings. A literature search did not reveal any study about yawning in people with MD when compared to controls. However, there is evidence for an increased frequenc...


Your morality, my mortality.

Recently the scope of protections afforded those healthcare professionals and institutions that refuse to provide certain interventions on the grounds of conscience have expanded, in some instances insulating providers (institutional and individual) from any liability or sanction for harms that patients experience as a result. With the exponential increase in the penetration of Catholic-affiliated healthcare across the country, physicians and nurses who are not practicing Catholics are nevertheless required...


You have my word: reciprocity expectation modulates feedback-related negativity in the trust game.

Promise is one of the most powerful tools producing trust and facilitating cooperation, and sticking to the promise is deemed as a key social norm in social interactions. The present study explored the extent to which promise would influence investors' decision-making in the trust game where promise had no predictive value regarding trustees' reciprocation. In addition, we examined the neural underpinnings of the investors' outcome processing related to the trustees' promise keeping and promise breaking. Co...

This study looked at yoga interventions done from 2008 to December 2013 and examined whether yoga can be an efficacious approach for influencing maternal and birth outcomes in pregnancy. Design: A systematic search of MEDLINE (PubMed), CINAHL, Alt HealthWatch, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, and ACP Journal Club databases was conducted for quantitative articles of pregnancy involving all sc...


Yeast β-1,6-glucan is a primary target for the Saccharomyces cerevisiae K2 toxin.

Certain Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains secrete different killer proteins of double-stranded RNA origin. These proteins confer a growth advantage to their host by increasing its survival. K2 toxin affects the target cell by binding to the cell surface, disrupting the plasma membrane integrity, and inducing ion leakage. In this study, we have determined that K2 toxin saturates the yeast cell surface receptors in 10 minutes. The apparent amount of K2 toxin, bound to a single cell of wild type yeast under sat...

Yacon-Based Product in the Modulation of Intestinal Constipation.

This study aimed to assess the effects of a yacon-based product (YBP) on constipation in adults, including the elderly. Forty-eight individuals were recruited and divided into equal intervention groups named the test and control groups. The YBP (test) and the control (maltodextrin) were dissolved in commercial orange juice. The volunteers for the YBP/test group consumed, on a daily basis, orange juice containing 10 g fructooligosaccharide (FOS)/inulin per day. The control group consumed, on a daily basis,...


Yaws Eradication - A Goal Finally within Reach.

Sustained implementation of mass treatment with oral azithromycin followed by active surveillance and targeted treatment of symptomatic and latent yaws, particularly in children, should lead to yaws eradication - though several challenges remain.


Yap/Taz gets under your skin.

During development, neurulation results in formation of both the neural tube and a population of neural crest cells that contribute to a variety of organs including the formation of pigment cells. This emergence of melanocytes from the neural crest involves Pax3-mediated regulation of Mitf and may be similar to the roles these transcriptional regulators play in growth and migration of melanoma cells. Recently, Manderfield et al (2014) have uncovered that Mitf expression is also dependent on the hippo tumou...


Young woman with a four-year history of epilepsy and progressive focal cortical atrophy - What is the diagnosis?

The pathogenesis of disease progression in drug-refractory epilepsy is poorly understood. We report the case of a young woman with a four-year history of epilepsy that progressed rapidly as evidenced by the development of progressive focal cortical atrophy. She underwent biopsy that showed perinatal ischemia and a prominent inflammatory response, including T-cell infiltration and microglial activation. There was no consensus reached on the final diagnosis although the hypothesis of dual pathology (adult var...


Yet Another Empty Forest: Considering the Conservation Value of a Recently Established Tropical Nature Reserve.

The primary approach used to conserve tropical biodiversity is in the establishment of protected areas. However, many tropical nature reserves are performing poorly and interventions in the broader landscape may be essential for conserving biodiversity both within reserves and at large. Between October 2010 and 2012, we conducted bird surveys in and around a recently established nature reserve in Xishuangbanna, China. We constructed a checklist of observed species, previously recorded species, and species i...

Yeast Phenomics: An Experimental Approach for Modeling Gene Interaction Networks that Buffer Disease.

The genome project increased appreciation of genetic complexity underlying disease phenotypes: many genes contribute each phenotype and each gene contributes multiple phenotypes. The aspiration of predicting common disease in individuals has evolved from seeking primary loci to marginal risk assignments based on many genes. Genetic interaction, defined as contributions to a phenotype that are dependent upon particular digenic allele combinations, could improve prediction of phenotype from complex genotype, ...

YAP Regulates S-Phase Entry in Endothelial Cells.

The Hippo pathway regulates cell proliferation and apoptosis through the Yes-associated protein (YAP) transcriptional activator. YAP has a well-described role in promoting cell proliferation and survival, but the precise mechanisms and transcriptional targets that underlie these properties are still unclear and likely context-dependent. We found, using siRNA-mediated knockdown, that YAP is required for proliferation in endothelial cells but not HeLa cells. Specifically, YAP is required for S-phase entry and...


Yeast population dynamics during prefermentative cold soak of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec wines.

Prefermentative cold soak is a widely used technique in red wine production, but the impact on the development of native yeast species is hardly described. The aim of this work was to analyse the dynamics and diversity of yeast populations during prefermentative cold soak in red wines. Three different temperatures (14±1°C; 8±1°C and 2.5±1°C) were used for prefermentative cold soak in Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec grape musts. Saccharomyces and non-Saccharomyces populations during cold soak and alcohol...
