Male anatomy of human organs in x-ray view
Ischemia reperfusion (I/R) injury is an inevitable event arising during the cardiovascular diseases development and the process of potent surgical treatments. microRNAs (miRNAs) are critical regulators of multiple cell processes including I/R injury. A recent study published by researchers from The Second Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University aimed to quantify miRNA alterations and regulated genes upon hypoxia-reoxygenation (H/R) injury in a rat heart failure model comparing with normal cardiomyocytes...

Beet Webworm
The beet webworm, Loxostege sticticalis (L.) (Lepidoptera: Crambidae), is an important insect pest that infests crops such as sugar beet, maize, and potato in Asia, Europe, and North America. The ovary grade is a reliable factor that can be used to forecast L. sticticalis outbreaks. However, forecasting outbreaks by dissecting female ovaries is tedious and generally impractical. Better methods for outbreak forecasting need to be developed. Molecular information on ovary transcriptomes potentially provides criteria for ovary grade.
