Loss-of-function mutations in the gene encoding the makorin RING finger protein 3 (MKRN3) have recently been reported to underlie familial cases of central precocious puberty (CPP). The imprinted MKRN3 gene is expressed only from the paternal allele, and mutations inherited from the father affect boys and girls equally, which is in contrast to the known(More)
Spatial heterogeneity is an inherent property of any living environment and is expected to favour biodiversity due to a broader niche space. Furthermore, edges between different habitats can provide additional possibilities for species coexistence. Using computer simulations, this study examines metacommunities consisting of several trophic levels in(More)
