However, UPR can trigger cell death under severe and/or persistently high ERS. The NLRP3 inflammasome is a complex of multiple proteins that activates the secretion of the proinflammatory cytokine IL-1β in a caspase-1-dependent manner to participate in the regulation of inflammation. The NLRP3 inflammasome...

 Evolutionary Biology News -- ScienceDaily MicroCT reveals detailed head morphology of arthropod, Leanchoilia illecebrosa Researchers used microCT to study and re-study arthropod fossils from the early Cambrian in the Chengjiang biota in the Yunnan Province of China. Their latest study shows with unprecedented clarity the head morphology of the species Leanchoilia illecebrosa and demonstrates the presence of a labrum thus supporting the hypothesis that megacheirans are distant relatives of modern chelicerates (e.g. horseshoe crabs, scorpions and spiders).

 Journal of Voice Effect of Age and Gender on Acoustic Voice Quality Index Across Lifespan: A Cross-sectional Study in Indian Population The human voice is dynamic and changes throughout the life span. The effects of age and gender on acoustical measures of voice quality have been well established. Assessment of voice quality using multiparametric measures has been recommended over singleton measures. Acoustic Voice Quality Index (AVQI), which is a multiparametric measure of voice quality, has gained popularity in the recent past. Studies investigating the effect of age on AVQI are very limited especially across the life span. The...
