Salivary gland morphology, tissue tropism and the progression of tospovirus infection in Frankliniella occidentalis
Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) is transmitted by thrips in a propagative manner; however, progression of virus infection in the insect is not fully understood. The goal of this work was to study the morphology and infection ...
Phylogenetic reassessment of Specklinia and its allied genera in the pleurothallidinae (Orchidaceae)
The phylogenetic relationships within Specklinia (Pleurothallidinae; Orchidaceae) and related genera are re-evaluated using Bayesian analyses of nrITS and chloroplast matK sequence data of a wide sampling of species. ...
Hallazgos fenotípicos por imágenes con Tomografía Dental Volumétrica (TDV) en amelogénesis imperfecta
Use of Dental Volumetric Tomography for Dental Phenotyping In Amelogenesis Imperfecta
Amelogénesis imperfecta (AI) se describe como un conjunto de defectos mendelianos en la biomineralización del esmalte dental, los cuales son severos en la mayoría de los casos al presentar anormalidades tales como un grosor ...
A microbial consortium from a biomixture swiftly degrades high concentrations of carbofuran in fluidized-bed reactors
An on-farm biopurification system (BPS) biomixture, with proven capacity to degrade carbofuran (CBF) was used as inoculum for a selective-enrichment process to obtain a bacterial consortium capable of using CBF as a sole ...
Deletion of amelotin exons 3–6 is associated with amelogenesis imperfecta
Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is a heterogeneous group of genetic conditions that result in defective dental enamel formation. Amelotin (AMTN) is a secreted protein thought to act as a promoter of matrix mineralization in ...
Genome Sequencing of Sulfolobus sp. A20 from Costa Rica and Comparative Analyses of the Putative Pathways of Carbon, Nitrogen, and Sulfur Metabolism in Various Sulfolobus Strains
The genome of Sulfolobus sp. A20 isolated from a hot spring in Costa Rica was sequenced. This circular genome of the strain is 2,688,317 bp in size and 34.8% in G+C content, and contains 2591 open reading frames (ORFs). ...
Selvamicin, an atypical antifungal polyene from two alternative genomic contexts
The bacteria harbored by fungus-growing ants produce a variety of small molecules that help maintain a complex multilateral symbiosis. In a survey of antifungal compounds from these bacteria, we discovered selvamicin, an ...
A time- and cost-effective strategy to sequence mammalian Y Chromosomes: an application to the de novo assembly of gorilla Y
The mammalian Y Chromosome sequence, critical for studying male fertility and dispersal, is enriched in repeats and palindromes, and thus, is the most difficult component of the genome to assemble. Previously, expensive ...
Density, size, and biomass of Diadema mexicanum (Echinoidea) in Eastern Tropical Pacific coral reefs
Diadema is among the most abundant, widely dispersed, and ecologically important genera of sea urchin in tropical shallow waters. D. mexicanum is distributed from the Gulf of California to northern Peru, including the ...
Euphausiids (Crustacea: Euphausiacea) from a hotspot of marine biodiversity, Isla del Coco, Costa Rica, Eastern Tropical Pacific
Eufáusidos (Crustacea: Euphausiacea) de un punto caliente de biodiversidad marina, Isla del Coco, Costa Rica, Pacífico Tropical Oriental
Euphausiids have been well studied in several regions of the Pacific Ocean; however, there is less information regarding euphausiids in Costa Rican waters. We analyzed euphausiid specimens collected around Isla del Coco ...
