Root architecture critically influences a plant's ability to forage for nutrients and water in soil. In this issue of Cell, Ogura et al. (2019) report a new regulatory gene and elegant molecular mechanism that links auxin-dependent root-angle regulation with improved plant fitness under variable rainfall conditions.

Rainfall patterns are one of the main drivers of dengue transmission as mosquitoes require standing water to reproduce. However, excess rainfall can be disruptive to the Aedes reproductive cycle by "f...
Background and Purpose A much higher rupture rate for patients with familial intracranial aneurysms (IA) compared with patients with sporadic IA has been reported in a study with highly selected famil...
The wind- and rainfall areas of tropical cyclones (TCs) making landfall over South Korea were examined for the period 1998-2013 by using the Modern Era Retrospective Analysis for Research and Applicat...
The contact angle hysteresis is an important parameter influencing the micro-size droplet wetting on the solid surface. In this study, a theoretical method for calculating the contact angle hysteresis...
Formation of adventitious roots in plants is a common response to hypoxia caused by flooding. In tobacco, after one week of root hypoxia treatment, plants produced twice as many adventitious roots as ...
Mortality of thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection (TAAD) remains high because of the huge blood lost from the aorta. Questions about the potentially genetic effects on sporadic TAAD are...
The carrying angle in the elbow in children is very important.Most of the results of treatment in fracture around the elbow have to measure the carrying angle.The common deformity of the e...
The purpose of this research study is to see if oral everolimus is tolerable and effective in the treatment of sporadic Angiomyolipomas (AMLs). AMLs are the most common non-cancerous tumor...
Whole exome sequencing (WES) of 50 sporadic and 50 Neurofibromatosis Type2 (NF2)-associated vestibularis schwannomas (VS) in children and young adults. The aim is to gain insight into the ...
The purpose of the study is to investigate the effect of different angles of decompression on the Flexor Carpi Radialis (FCR) H-Reflex in patients with cervical radiculopathy
Scattering of a beam of electromagnetic or acoustic RADIATION, or particles, at small angles by particles or cavities whose dimensions are many times as large as the wavelength of the radiation or the de Broglie wavelength of the scattered particles. Also know as low angle scattering. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed) Small angle scattering (SAS) techniques, small angle neutron (SANS), X-ray (SAXS), and light (SALS, or just LS) scattering, are used to characterize objects on a nanoscale.
Congenital open-angle glaucoma that results from dysgenesis of the angle structures accompanied by increased intraocular pressure and enlargement of the eye. Treatment is both medical and surgical.
Root-like underground horizontal stem of plants that produces shoots above and roots below. Distinguished from true roots which don't have buds and nodes. Similar to true roots in being underground and thickened by storage deposits.
Glaucoma in which the angle of the anterior chamber is open and the trabecular meshwork does not encroach on the base of the iris.
A form of glaucoma in which the intraocular pressure increases because the angle of the anterior chamber is blocked and the aqueous humor cannot drain from the anterior chamber.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Bioinformatics is the application of computer software and hardware to the management of biological data to create useful information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied...
