    <b>Objective:</b> Endothelial cell (EC) dysfunction is a well-established response to cardiovascular disease risk factors, such as smoking and obesity. Risk factor exposure can modify EC signaling and behavior, leading to arterial and venous disease development. Here, we aimed to identify biomarker panels for the assessment of EC dysfunction, which could be useful for risk stratification or to monitor ...
  • Determinants of bilingualism predict dynamic changes in resting state EEG oscillations 

    Pereira Soares, Sergio Miguel; Rossi, Eleonora; Rothman, Jason (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-10-08)
    This study uses resting state EEG data from 103 bilinguals to understand how determinants of bilingualism may reshape the mind/brain. Participants completed the LSBQ, which quantifies language use and crucially the division of labor of dual-language use in diverse activities and settings over the lifespan. We hypothesized correlations between the degree of active bilingualism with power of neural ...
  • Complex and divergent histories gave rise to genome-wide divergence patterns amongst European whitefish (Coregonus lavaretus) 

    Crotti, Marco; Bean, Colin W.; Gowans, Andy R. D.; Winfield, Ian J.; Butowska, Magdalena; Wanzenböck, Josef; Bondarencko, Galina; Præbel, Kim; Adams, Colin E.; Elmer, Kathryn R. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-10-15)
    Pleistocene glaciations dramatically affected species distribution in regions that were impacted by ice cover and subsequent postglacial range expansion impacted contemporary biodiversity in complex ways. The European whitefish, Coregonus lavaretus, is a widely distributed salmonid fish species on mainland Europe, but in Britain it has only seven native populations, all of which are found on the ...
  • North Atlantic minke whale (Balaenoptera acutorostrata) feeding habits and migrations evaluated by stable isotope analysis of baleen 

    Eerkes-Medrano, Dafne; Aldridge, David C.; Blix, Arnoldus S (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-10-24)
    Isotopic analyses of the incrementally growing baleen in Mysticeti have been used to learn about their feeding and movement patterns. Using methods previously applied to Pacific minke whales, stable δ<sup>15</sup>N and δ<sup>13</sup>C isotope values were measured along the baleen plates of male and female minke whales from two locations in the Northeast Atlantic. The sample sizes used in this ...
  • Ancient DNA, Lipid Biomarkers and Palaeoecological Evidence Reveals Construction and Life on early Medieval Lake Settlements 

    Brown, Antony; van Hardenbroek, Maarten; Fonville, Thierry; Davies, Kimberley L.; Mackay, Helen; Murray, E; Head, Katie; Barratt, Phil; McCormick, F; Ficetola, Fransesco Gentil; Henderson, Andrew; Crone, Anne; Cavers, G; Langdon, Peter G.; Whitehouse, Nicki J.; Pirrie, Duncan; Alsos, Inger Greve; Gielly, L (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-06-03)
    Direct evidence of ancient human occupation is typically established through archaeological excavation. Excavations are costly and destructive, and practically impossible in some lake and wetland environments. We present here an alternative approach, providing direct evidence from lake sediments using DNA metabarcoding, steroid lipid biomarkers (bile acids) and from traditional environmental analyses. ...
