Adaptations of data mining methodologies: a systematic literature review
Sebastian Ventura –– An interesting introduction to the topic. Of interest of people involved in the use and development of data mining algorithms.
Biochemical parameters, dynamic tensiometry and circulating nucleic acids for cattle blood analysis: a review
Zekiye Altun –– This review is related to veterinary biochemistry and circulating nucleic acids. This review will help at this research area to researchers.
Transcriptome profiling of avian pathogenic Escherichia coli and the mouse microvascular endothelial cell line bEnd.3 during interaction
Vasco Azevedo –– an article with interesting clues for understanding the pathogenesis of these microorganisms
Extensive protein expression changes induced by pamidronate in RAW 264.7 cells as determined by IP-HPLC
Maria Cristina Albertini –– The results are of interest for the research community.
Evaluation of the effective dose of amygdalin for the improvement of antioxidant gene expression and suppression of oxidative damage in mice
Sanket Joshi –– The administration of low-medium dose of amygdalin showed improved oxidative balance in male-mice models, and further-future studies and experiments might highlight it as a potential cancer therapy option (however few contrasting reports also showing potentially fatal cyanide poisoning)!
Plasma antioxidants and oxidative stress status in obese women: correlation with cardiopulmonary response
Francois van der Westhuizen –– The study provides additional but specific evidence on the redox state of obese women and the risk factors associated with it.
Expression and protease characterization of a conserved protein YgjD in Vibrio harveyi
Mohammed Gagaoua –– Interesting manuscript that characterized a protease from Vibrio harveyi
Adaptive divergence for rapid adversarial optimization
Charles Elkan –– Generative adversarial networks (GANs) are an exciting development in machine learning, but it is hard to make them work in practice, and they can require a lot of training data. This research is a significant step towards making GANs more usable.
Application of High Resolution Melt analysis (HRM) for screening haplotype variation in a non-model plant genus: Cyclopia (Honeybush)
Gabriele Casazza –– Add new methodological information on genetic analyses
Luteolin attenuates doxorubicin-induced cardiotoxicity by modulating the PHLPP1/AKT/Bcl-2 signalling pathway
Cheng-Chia Yu –– Luteolin administration as novel and natural therapeutic to protect against chemotherapy-induced cardiotoxicity
