Arsenic: toxicity, oxidative stress and human disease
Arsenic (As) is a toxic metalloid element that is present in air, water and soil. Inorganic arsenic tends to be more toxic than organic arsenic. Examples of methylated organic arsenicals include
Multi-Organ Expression Profiling Uncovers a Gene Module in Coronary Artery Disease Involving Transendothelial Migration of Leukocytes and LIM Domain Binding 2: The Stockholm Atherosclerosis Gene
TLDR
The transcription co-factor LIM domain binding 2 (LDB2) was identified as a potential high-hierarchy regulator of the A-module, a notion supported by subnetwork analysis, by cellular and lesion expression of LDB2, and by the expression of 13 TEML genes in Ldb2–deficient arterial wall.
Association of Genetic Risk Variants With Expression of Proximal Genes Identifies Novel Susceptibility Genes for Cardiovascular Disease
TLDR
This study demonstrates several instances of association between risk-SNPs and genes immediately adjacent to them and demonstrates instances in which the associated gene is not the immediately proximal and obvious candidate gene for disease.
Reproductive Character Displacement in Lymantria monacha from Northern Japan?
TLDR
Pheromonal communication late at night and use of (+)-monachalure, rather than (+)-disparlure, as the major pheromone component by L. monachain Honshu may have resulted from interspecific competition with coseasonal L. fumida, which uses the early night for pheromonnal communication and (+-disparLure as major phomonal component.
Accuracy of 2 Different Continuous Glucose Monitoring Systems in Patients Undergoing Cardiac Surgery
TLDR
The results indicate that the Eirus intravascular microdialysis system monitors glucose continuously with superior accuracy compared to the FreeStyle Libre subcutaneous glucose monitoring system, which repeatedly measured a glucose value that was lower than the reference method.
Tracheobronchial transplantation with a stem-cell-seeded bioartificial nanocomposite: a proof-of-concept study

Neuropeptide Y Y1 receptors in vascular pharmacology.
Specificity of nun and gypsy moth sexual communication through multiple-component pheromone blends
TLDR
Identification of cis-7,8-epoxy-3-methylnonadecane as a second pheromone component in female GM, attracting GM but not NM males, provided the first evidence for species-specific peromone components also in GM.
