Increasing evidence suggests small non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) such as microRNAs (miRNAs) control levels of mRNA expression during experience-related remodelling of the brain. Here we use an associative olfactory learning paradigm in the honeybee Apis mellifera to examine gene expression changes...

Nano-sized curcumin-loaded super-paramagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (CUR-OA-SPIONs) were synthesized chemically by co-precipitation method using oleic acid as a stabilizer and Myrj 52 as a surfactant. The synthesized nanoparticles were characterized for their shape, size, surface morphology, electrokinetic potential, magnetic properties...

Soil quality standards are based on partitioning and toxicity data for laboratory-spiked reference soils, instead of real world, historically contaminated soils, which would be more representative. Here 21 diverse historically contaminated soils from Sweden, Belgium, and France were obtained, and...
