Ceratonova gasterostea n. gen. n. sp. is described from the intestine of freshwater
Gasterosteus aculeatus L. from the Klamath River, California. Myxospores are arcuate, 22.4 +/-
2.6 μm thick, 5.2 +/- 0.4 μm long, posterior angle 45 +/- 24°, with 2 sub-spherical polar
capsules, diameter 2.3 +/- 0.2 μm, which...
Measurements on growth traits up to 41 years of age
from 68 progeny sites in eight first-generation breeding
zones of coastal Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii
[MIRB.] FRANCO var. menziesii) in the US Pacific Northwest
were used to investigate age trends of genetic parameters
and to determine optimum age of selection. Heritabilities...
Severe infection by the endemic myxozoan parasite, Ceratonova (synonym, Ceratomyxa) shasta, has been associated with declines in and impaired recovery efforts of populations of fall-run Chinook Salmon Oncorhynchus tshawytscha in the Klamath River, California. The parasite has a complex life cycle involving a polychaete worm host as well as a...
The end of the Cold War brought about changes within international political relations that resulted in expanded interest in global civil society. Such developments, like globalization and democratization, have encouraged the growth of social and political organizations. Political scientists have found that these inter-governmental and non-governmental organizations have a significant...

Eukaryotic ribosome biogenesis involves ~200 assembly
factors, but how these contribute to ribosome
maturation is poorly understood. Here, we
identify a network of factors on the nascent 60S subunit
that actively remodels preribosome structure. At its hub is
Rsa4, a direct substrate of the force-generating ATPase
Rea1. We show that...

The phenomenon of phantom limb pain has been well documented for centuries, but little clinical work has been done to alleviate it. Physician and neuroscientist Vilayanur S. Ramachandran began researching this condition nearly two decades ago, and has discovered a promising alternative treatment: mirror-box therapy. This therapy is not yet...
