E3 ligase complex. Thalidomide redirects the E3 ligase activity of this complex, inhibiting autoubiquitylation whilst augmenting ubiquitylation and degradation of the B-cell-specific transcription factors IKZF1/3. The next decade is likely to witness the development of drugs targeting ubiquitin ligases at all levels of the conjugation cascade, as well as(More)
Sexually selected ornaments and signals are costly to maintain if they are maladaptive in nonreproductive contexts. The jumping spider Cosmophasis umbratica exhibits distinct sexual dichromatism with males displaying elaborate UV body markings that signal male quality. Female C. umbratica respond favorably to UV-reflecting males and ignore males that have(More)
The escape response of an organism is generally its last line of defense against a predator. Because the effectiveness of an escape varies with the approach behaviour of the predator, it should be advantageous for prey to alter their escape trajectories depending on the mode of predator attack. To test this hypothesis we examined the escape responses of a(More)
Mimicry complexes typically consist of multiple species that deter predators using similar anti-predatory signals. Mimics in these complexes are assumed to vary in their level of defence from highly defended through to moderately defended, or not defended at all. Here, we report a new multi-order mimicry complex that includes at least 140 different putative(More)
