Thermal physiology of laboratory mice: defining thermoneutrality
Published in Journal of Thermal Biology
This paper presents a state-of-the-art review on the unique aspects of temperature regulation in laboratory mice. How their thermal physiological responses to changes in ambient temperature affect their metabolism, growth, reproduction, development, behavior and thermal comfort is given special emphasis.
Synthetic biosensing systems
The authors discuss how increasingly complex synthetic biosensing devices are being built from well studied signaling pathway components.
Intrinsically Disordered Proteins from A to Z
Vladimir N. Uversky
Intrinsically disordered proteins are no longer considered rare, but are now known as participants in dynamic protein complexes and the aetiology of multiple human genetic diseases.
