A new synthetic lure for management of the invasive giant African snail, Lissachatina fulica.

Synthetic chemical lures mimicking pheromones or food attractants are essential tools in eradication programs for invasive species. However, their uses in programs aiming to control or eradicate terrestrial gastropods are largely unexplored. The goal of this study was to find a synthetic attractant that could aid in the eradication or management of the giant African snail (Lissachatina fulica). Field studies in Hawaii showed that a commercial papaya-flavored oil attracted snails. Analysis of the odor profil...

Sex biased individual variation in movement patterns of a highly mobile, near-shore marine planktivore, the reef manta ray Mobula alfredi.

We examined individual variation and the role of sex on the movements of the reef manta ray Mobula alfredi. Specifically, we analysed several movement metrics using 6 years of nightly observations (January 1, 2009-December 31, 2014) of 118 individually identifiable manta rays at two discrete but spatially proximate sites, locally known as Manta Heaven and Manta Village, 15 km apart on the west side of the island of Hawaii, USA. Males were slightly more often (33.5%, model fitted mean, P 

Mortality Patterns Between Five States With Highest Death Rates and Five States With Lowest Death Rates: United States, 2017.

Mortality in the United States varies widely by state (1). This report compares average age-adjusted death rates by sex, race and ethnicity, and five leading causes of death between a group of five states with the highest age-adjusted death rates (Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and West Virginia) and a group of five states with the lowest age-adjusted death rates (California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Minnesota, and New York) in 2017 (2). Age-specific death rates for the two groups are presented as we...

Using spatially explicit, time-dependent analysis to understand how social factors influence conservation outcomes.

Conservation across human-dominated landscapes requires an understanding of the social and ecological factors driving outcomes. Studies that link conservation outcomes to social and ecological factors have examined temporally static patterns. However, there may be different social and ecological processes driving increases and decreases in conservation outcomes that can only be revealed through temporal analyses. Through a case study of the invasion of Falcataria moluccana in Hawaii, we examined the associa...

The MTT cell viability studies confirmed that the fabricated nanobubbles were safe and nontoxic. Furthermore, the ultrasound imaging studies were performed to assess the imp...

Putting The Pieces Together Again: American States and the End of the ACA's Shared Responsibility Payment.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) eliminated the ACA's "shared responsibility payment," which penalized those who failed to comply with the requirement to purchase health insurance. In this article the authors explain efforts in several states to respond to this change by adopting individual health insurance mandates at the state level. Although there are good reasons to think that states may be reluctant to consider establishing their own mandates, New Jersey, the District of Columbia, and Vermont quickly j...

Evolutionary ecology, taxonomy, and systematics of avian malaria and related parasites.

Haemosporidian parasites of the genera Plasmodium, Leucocytozoon, and Haemoproteus are one of the most prevalent and widely studied groups of parasites infecting birds. Plasmodium is the most well-known haemosporidian as the avian parasite Plasmodium relictum was the original transmission model for human malaria and was also responsible for catastrophic effects on native avifauna when introduced to Hawaii. The past two decades has seen a dramatic increase in research on avian haemosporidian parasites as a m...

Evaluating Quantitative Trait Locus Resistance in Tomato to Multiple spp.

Bacterial spot of tomato is a foliar disease caused by four species. Identifying genetic resistance in wild tomatoes and subsequent breeding of varieties has been a strategy to reduce the loss from this disease because control using pesticides has been ineffective. Three independent sources of resistance have been identified with quantitative trait loci (QTL) mapping to the centromeric region on chromosome 11. These sources are derived from Hawaii 7998 (QTL-11A), PI 114490 (QTL-11B), and LA2533 (QTL-11C). ...

Highly efficient production of rabies virus glycoprotein G ectodomain in Sf9 insect cells.

In the present study, we developed a complete process to produce in insect cells a high amount of the ectodomain of rabies virus glycoprotein G (G) as suitable antigen for detecting anti-rabies antibodies. Using the baculovirus expression vector system in Sf9 insect cells combined with a novel chimeric promoter (-), the expression level reached a yield of 4.1 ± 0.3 mg/L culture, which was significantly higher than that achieved with the standard promoter alone. The protein was recovered from the cell...

Genome-wide identification and functional analysis of the WDR protein family in potato.

WD-repeat (WDR) proteins are highly abundant and participate in a seemingly wide range of interactions and cellular functions acting as scaffolding molecules. However, WDR identification in potato has not been conducted so far. In this study, we demonstrated the presence of at least 168 WDR genes in potato ( L.) which can be subdivided into five discrete clusters (Cluster I-V) and 10 classes inferred from their phylogenetic features of the constituent genes and the distribution of domains. These genes are d...

Significance of the IL-8 pathway for immunotherapy.

IL-8 (CXCL-8) is a chemoattractant factor for myeloid leukocytes, that is produced in large quantities by many solid tumors. Levels of IL-8, which can act upon a variety of immune and nonimmune cells, can tell us a lot about tumors, including their size (positive association) and how likely they are to respond to immunotherapy (negative association). This is because the IL-8 produced by tumors can promote angiogenesis, recruit immunosuppressive cells like neutrophils and myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MD...

Production and purification of laccase by sp. using millet husks and its pesticide degradation application.

Lignocellulosic agricultural bi-products, pearl millet (PM) and finger millet (FM) husks, were used for the production of laccase using sp. PS under solid-state fermentation (SSF). Abiotic variables such as substrate (PM, FM) concentration (1-5%), incubation time (24-96 h) and pH (5-10) were optimized using Response surface methodology (RSM) to maximize the laccase production. The predicted model showed maximum laccase activity of 402 U/mL appearing after 96 h of incubation with PM 2.0 g/L and FM 1.5 g...
