Systematics of stalked jellyfishes (Cnidaria: Staurozoa)

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Tim Collins –– This manuscript presents a new phylogenetic hypothesis for the stalked jellyfishes, which differs significantly from the traditional taxonomy of the group. It therefore implies a novel view of the evolutionary history of the group.
The interplay between habitat structure and chemical contaminants on biotic responses of benthic organisms

Editor rating: 8 / 10

James Reimer –– A novel approach examining habitat complexity and marine diversity, and what happens when contaminants are introduced into the system. The results show the effects of habitat complexity disappear when contaminants are introduced - a major take-away point to help us understand what happens in marine ecosystems under pollution pressure.
Mitochondrial aerobic respiration is activated during hair follicle stem cell differentiation, and its dysfunction retards hair regeneration

Editor rating: 8 / 10

Ranji Cui –– Hair regeneration is always hot topic. Most of persons maybe like this kinds of research.However, relevent report is really seldom compared to cancer or other research.
Crystal structure of the 3C protease from Southern African Territories type 2 foot-and-mouth disease virus

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Encarna Martinez-Salas –– Detailed knowledge of the crystal structure of distinct FMDV 3C proteases may help to ellucidate differences in the processing efficiency of this critical protease

The myogenic electric organ of Sternopygus macrurus: a non-contractile tissue with a skeletal muscle transcriptome

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Ibolya Kiss –– Comprehensive expession analysis of transriptomes and miRNA compositions of muscles and electric organ of Sternopygus macrurus strongly supports the model that a novel post-transcriptional regulatory program directs the differentiation of the highly specialized non-contractile electronic cells from a skeletal muscle phenotype.
Involvement of the arachidonic acid cytochrome P450 epoxygenase pathway in the proliferation and invasion of human multiple myeloma cells

Editor rating: 8 / 10

Cheorl-Ho Kim –– The P450 Cyto pathway in the myeloma cells is explained.

Editor rating: 7 / 10

Gian Maria Fimia –– This manuscript contributed to elucidate the mechanisms linking insulin resistance and autophagy impairment.
