Persistent membrane translocation of protein kinase C alpha during 12-0-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate-induced apoptosis of LNCaP human prostate cancer cells.
TLDR
A strong correlation of the presence and absence of membrane PKC alpha with apoptosis and resistance to apoptosis is demonstrated, respectively.
An integrative revision of Mesocrista Pilato, 1987 (Tardigrada: Eutardigrada: Hypsibiidae)
TLDR
The first-ever scanning electron microscopy images of a dissected bucco-pharyngeal apparatus and DNA sequences for Mesocrista, a Holarctic tardigrade genus currently classified within the subfamily Itaquasconinae, and a new species, M. revelata, from the European localities are presented.
An integrative description of Macrobiotus paulinae sp. nov. (Tardigrada: Eutardigrada: Macrobiotidae: hufelandi group) from Kenya.
TLDR
The re-examination of the type material for these two species confirmed that they are equipped with peribuccal lamellae and therefore they are transferred to the genus Macrobiotus, specifically to the hufelandi group.
An integrative description of Macrobiotus shonaicus sp. nov. (Tardigrada: Macrobiotidae) from Japan with notes on its phylogenetic position within the hufelandi group
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of available DNA sequences of the COI marker for the hufelandi group revealed that the new species clusters with the two other species that exhibit filaments on egg process discs, which may suggest that the ancestor of the five species with atypical egg processes had a mutation allowing derivations from the mushroom or inverted chalice-like shape of egg processes.
An integrative redescription of Hypsibius dujardini (Doyère, 1840), the nominal taxon for Hypsibioidea (Tardigrada: Eutardigrada).
TLDR
It is revealed that a commercially available strain that is maintained in many laboratories throughout the world, and assumed to represent H. dujardini sensu stricto, represents, in fact, a new species: H. exemplaris sp.
High Mitochondrial Diversity in a New Water Bear Species (Tardigrada: Eutardigrada) from Mountain Glaciers in Central Asia, with the Erection of a New Genus Cryoconicus
TLDR
The erection of the new genus Cryoconicus is based on a unique combination of morphological traits as well as on phylogenetic analyses and it is found that a rare mountain tardigrade Ramazzottius cataphractus is morphologically similar to the new species, therefore it is proposed to transfer it to thenew genus.
Deceptive conservatism of claws: distinct phyletic lineages concealed within Isohypsibioidea (Eutardigrada) revealed by molecular and morphological evidence
TLDR
Claw morphology is reviewed and, for the first time, shown to encompass a number of morphotypes that correlate with clades recovered in the molecular analysis, and a dychotomous diagnostic key to all currently recognised isohypsibioid families and genera is provided.
Integrative redescription of a common Arctic water bear Pilatobius recamieri (Richters, 1911)
TLDR
This study redescribes Pilatobius recamieri using new material from the type locality and tools of integrative taxonomy by combining classical imaging and morphometry by light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy imaging with DNA sequencing of four markers with various mutation rates: three nuclear (18S rRNA, 28S r RNA, and ITS-2) and one mitochondrial (COI).
