Prevalence of depression in chronic kidney disease: systematic review and meta-analysis of observational studies.
A systematic review and meta-analysis of observational studies to summarize the point prevalence of depressive symptoms in adults with CKD suggested that self-report scales may overestimate the presence of depression, particularly in the dialysis setting. Expand
Networks of power and influence: the role of mycorrhizal mycelium in controlling plant communities and agroecosystem functioning
The potential contribution of extraradical mycorrhizal mycelium to sustainable agriculture and maintenance of biodiversity is assessed and technologies that promise new vistas and improved fine-scale resolution of the dynamic spatial and temporal functioning of these networks in soil are highlighted. Expand
A randomized, controlled trial of early versus late initiation of dialysis.
BACKGROUND In clinical practice, there is considerable variation in the timing of the initiation of maintenance dialysis for patients with stage V chronic kidney disease, with a worldwide trendExpand
Sequence and analysis of chromosome 4 of the plant Arabidopsis thaliana
Analysis of 17.38 megabases of unique sequence, representing about 17% of the Arabidopsis genome, reveals 3,744 protein coding genes, 81 transfer RNAs and numerous repeat elements. Expand
Nicotinic Acid Limitation Regulates Silencing of Candida Adhesins During UTI
It is shown that normally silent EPA genes are expressed during murine urinary tract infection (UTI) and that the inducing signal is the limitation of nicotinic acid (NA), a precursor of Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+). Expand
