bioRxiv Subject Collection: Evolutionary BiologyReconstructing the history of variation in effective population size along phylogenies [NEW RESULTS]The nearly-neutral theory predicts specific relations between effective population size (Ne), and patterns of divergence and polymorphism, which depend on the shape of the distribution of fitness effects (DFE) of new mutations. However, testing these relations is not straightforward since Ne is difficult to estimate in practice. For that reason, indirect...

Salt Loading Blunts Central and Peripheral Postexercise HypotensionIntroduction High salt intake is a widespread cardiovascular risk factor with systemic effects. These effects include an expansion of plasma volume, which may interfere with postexercise hypotension (PEH). However, the effects of high salt intake on central and peripheral indices of PEH remain unknown. We tested the hypothesis that high salt intake would attenuate central and peripheral PEH. Methods Nineteen healthy adults (7F/12M,...

Translational Medicine: Exercise Physiology Applied to Metabolic MyopathiesThe relevance of translational medicine (bringing basic science methods "to the bed of patients") is universally recognized. Too often, however, the tools to be applied translationally are thought to derive only from the "-omics" (genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics, etc.) world. The failures of this "reductionist" approach are widely recognized. In the review, we discuss studies demonstrating that scientifically...

Role of Lipid Composition in the Interaction and Activity of the Antimicrobial Compound Fengycin with Complex Membrane ModelsAbstractFengycins are compounds produced by bacteria of the Bacillus genus with strong antifungal activity. In this work, lipids extracted from fungal and oomycetal molds were used to assess the ability of fengycin to bind and insert into complex membrane models prepared as Langmuir lipid monolayers. In addition, fengycin-induced leakage in liposomes prepared from these complex...
