Dietary flavonoids of Spanish youth: intakes, sources, and association with the Mediterranean diet
Maria Cristina Albertini –– This study indicates the daily flavonoid intake in young Spanish population that can be of support in other studies related to Mediterranean diet.
On the entry of an emerging arbovirus into host cells: Mayaro virus takes the highway to the cytoplasm through fusion with early endosomes and caveolae-derived vesicles
Paul Tulkens –– Interesting observations on endostosis and viruses.
Oxytetracycline induces DNA damage and epigenetic changes: a possible risk for human and animal health?
Vincenzo Brancaleone –– The presence of antibiotics in animal food could be crucial for development of allergies and drug hypersensitivity. Apart from this aspect, the relevance of antibacterial drug resistance is also a key aspect highlighted by the manuscript.
Plant traits and environment: floating leaf blade production and turnover of waterlilies
Natasha de Vere –– Interesting article
CRF: detection of CRISPR arrays using random forest
Gian Tartaglia –– The identification if CRISPR arrays is crucial to understand how the system works and can be manipulated in applications
Novel polymeric micelles for insect pest control: encapsulation of essential oil monoterpenes inside a triblock copolymer shell for head lice control
Ilaria Negri –– Head lice are a common health condition, especially in children, and can be difficult to remove. Therefore articles on new biopesticides formulations are of much interest.
Floral pathway integrator gene expression mediates gradual transmission of environmental and endogenous cues to flowering time
Gerrit Beemster –– The approach integrates a large amount of data on flowering time regulation and provides a new method for this incorporating modelling with expression and phenotypic data.
Metformin ameliorates insulitis in STZ-induced diabetic mice
Jie Liu –– An interesting story
gb4gv: a genome browser for geminivirus
Ana Grande-Pérez –– A comprehensive and useful tool that will aid plant science community in the study of geminivirus genomics
Effects of chronic exposure to clothianidin on the earthworm Lumbricus terrestris
Joao Rocha –– Basically, the study determined the toxicity of neonicotinoids in non-target organism (earthworm), which is important from the environmental/ecological point of views. Furthermore, the study can be a motivation to the increase the exploitation of earthworm (Lumbricus terrestris) as an alternative and simple animal model to study the toxicity of different chemical agents.
