A new scenario of bioprospecting of Hymenoptera venoms through proteomic approach
(Journal of Venomous Animals and Toxins Including Tropical Diseases, 2011-01-01) [Resenha]
Venoms represent a huge and essentially unexplored reservoir of bioactive components that may cure diseases that do not respond to currently available therapies. This review select advances reported in the literature from ...
Review of the Rare Genus Phrynomedusa Miranda-Ribeiro, 1923 (Anura: Phyllomedusidae) With Description of a New Species
(Herpetological Monographs, 2016-01-01) [Resenha]
We present the first taxonomic review of the genus Phrynomedusa since its description with diagnoses of the genus and species. We present a broad literature review of the genus and provide updates and remarks about the ...
Cold-adapted enzymes produced by fungi from terrestrial and marine Antarctic environments
(Critical Reviews in Biotechnology, 2018-05-19) [Resenha]
Antarctica is the coldest, windiest, and driest continent on Earth. In this sense, microorganisms that inhabit Antarctica environments have to be adapted to harsh conditions. Fungal strains affiliated with Ascomycota and ...
Molecular interplays in hepatic stellate cells: apoptosis, senescence, and phenotype reversion as cellular connections that modulate liver fibrosis
(Cell Biology International, 2017-09-01) [Resenha]
Liver fibrosis is a pathophysiological process correlated with intense repair and cicatrization mechanisms in injured liver, and over the past few years, the characterization of the fine-tuning of molecular interconnections ...
Current advances in immunological studies on the vespidae venom antigen 5: Therapeutic and prophylaxis to hypersensitivity responses
(Toxins, 2018-08-01) [Resenha]
Although systemic reactions caused by allergenic proteins present in venoms affect a small part of the world population, Hymenoptera stings are among the main causes of immediate hypersensitivity responses, with risk of ...
Rewilding ecological communities and rewiring ecological networks
(Perspectives in Ecology and Conservation, 2017-10-01) [Resenha]
Rewilding encompasses management actions such as reintroductions and translocations with the purpose of restoring ecological processes and ecosystem functions that were lost when species were locally extirpated. The success ...
Sexual dimorphism and phenotypic plasticity in the antennal lobe of a stingless bee, Melipona scutellaris
(Journal Of Comparative Neurology, 2015-07-01) [Resenha]
Among social insects, the stingless bees (Apidae, Meliponini), a mainly tropical group of highly eusocial bees, present an intriguing variety of well-described olfactory-dependent behaviors showing both caste- and sex-specific ...
The anuran calling repertoire in the light of social context
(Acta Ethologica, 2015-06-01) [Resenha]
Frogs are immediately associated to their conspicuous vocalizations emitted during the breeding season. Therefore, many scientists were inspired to study their acoustic communication. Nowadays, many types of calls are ...
