Stress conditions stimulate the accumulation of antioxidants in photosynthetic organisms, but can also restrict their normal growth rate. As such, this compilation opens with a two-stage technique for microalgae cultivation that may resolve this problem by separating biomass accumulation and stimulation biosynthesis of α-tocopherol.
Following this, the authors describe the structural and enzymatic properties of plant PM-H+-ATPases, their regulation and physiological roles.
A selective review of the experimental literature concerning the effects of early life stress in brain development is provided, with emphasis on the role of inflammatory responses, the gut microbiome mediating brain and behavioral changes relevant to mental health disorders.
The impact of urgency on the temporal organization of prehospital interventions is assessed, analyzing the impact of the characteristics of the patient, the paramedic and the working environment on the sequence and duration of prehospital interventions.
The authors shed light on prehospital work by examining how paramedics experience encounters with persons in crisis through a qualitative research approach.
Additionally, they aim to assess the association between estimated pulse wave velocity and metabolic biomarkers in patients with albuminuria through a subsequent study.
The concluding study focuses on thoroughly revealing the various hallmarks of apoptosis and the overall mechanism which connects these hallmarks.
