Presence of Papillomavirus DNA sequences in the canine transmissible venereal tumor (CTVT)
Vladimir Uversky –– An important study showing that transmissible venereal tumor in dogs can be caused by Canine papillomavirus
Validation of COI metabarcoding primers for terrestrial arthropods
Xavier Pochon –– A very impressive work offering the most comprehensive validation of COI metabarcoding primers for terrestrial arthropods to date.
Expression of leptin and leptin receptors in colorectal cancer—an immunohistochemical study
Sarwat Naz –– The findings are clinically relevant in understanding the role of leptin and leptin receptors in the pathphysiology of colon cancer and its correlation with obesity /tumor metabolism.
Brodifacoum does not modulate human cannabinoid receptor-mediated hyperpolarization of AtT20 cells or inhibition of adenylyl cyclase in HEK 293 cells
Jörg Oehlmann –– The article provides evidence on topic which has been discussed intesively in science and the media: a potential interaction of brodifacoum with human cannabinoid receptors. While it has been speculated that brodifacoum may enhance the effects of cannabinoids, this article clearly shows that bordifacoum does not interact with human CB1 and CB2 receptors as the most probable target structure.
Development of a highly sensitive magneto-enzyme lateral flow immunoassay for dengue NS1 detection
Mario Alberto Flores-Valdez –– Point of care methods or devices are highly desirable to speed up diagnosis of several diseases including dengue
