South Africa to Tap Phone Data to Prepare for Coronavirus Case Spikes

(Bloomberg) -- South Africa’s biggest mobile phone companies have been asked to help track the movement of people days before a national lock-down as authorities grow concerned that they may spread the coronavirus to remote parts of the country.The National Institute for Communicable Diseases, which is spearheading the government’s response to the outbreak, wants the information so that it can better prepare for the next areas most at risk. So far, most confirmed cases have been in or near major...

Lysophosphatidic acid–induced YAP/TAZ activation promotes developmental angiogenesis by repressing Notch ligand Dll4

Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) is a potent lipid mediator with various biological functions mediated through six G protein–coupled receptors (GPCRs), LPA1–LPA6. Previous studies have demonstrated that LPA–Gα12/Gα13 signaling plays an important role in embryonic vascular development. However, the responsible LPA receptors and underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. Here, we show a critical role of LPA4 and LPA6 in developmental angiogenesis. In mice, Lpa4;Lpa6 double-knockout (DKO) embryos were...

Notch signaling dynamically regulates adult β cell proliferation and maturity

Notch signaling regulates differentiation of the pancreatic endocrine lineage during embryogenesis, but the role of Notch in mature β cells is unclear. We found that islets derived from lean mice show modest β cell Notch activity, which increases in obesity and in response to high glucose. This response appeared maladaptive, as mice with β cell–specific–deficient Notch transcriptional activity showed improved glucose tolerance when subjected to high-fat diet feeding. Conversely, mice with β cell...

Control of transcriptional activity by design of charge patterning in the intrinsically disordered RAM region of the Notch receptor [Biophysics and Computational Biology]

Intrinsically disordered regions (IDRs) play important roles in proteins that regulate gene expression. A prominent example is the intracellular domain of the Notch receptor (NICD), which regulates the transcription of Notch-responsive genes. The NICD sequence includes an intrinsically disordered RAM region and a conserved ankyrin (ANK) domain. The 111-residue RAM...

Are Our Candidates Bringing Out the Best - or the Worst?

Can presidential candidates who bring out the worst in each other bring out the best in America? This question has been on my mind long before the dirty name-calling on the 2016 campaign. A quarter of a century ago, when eight candidates were competing for the Democratic nomination for president in 1992, I asked Pat Riley, then the successful basketball coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, which one he favored. "I wouldn't put any one of them on my team," he said firmly. "Why not?" I asked him. "I ...

Smart Battery Charger (no Soldering!)

Many AA or AAA battery chargers charge batteries in pairs, but plenty of devices use 1 or 3 batteries, meaning that some of your batteries get overcharged and some get undercharged. NiCd and NiMH batteries also benefit from an occasional full discharge, which most normal battery chargers won't do.If...By: gfwilliamsContinue Reading » [Author: gfwilliams]
