  • The amount of water contained in a snowpack, known as snow water equivalent (SWE), is used to anticipate the amount of snowmelt that could supply hydroelectric power plants, fill water reservoirs, or sometimes cause flooding. This work introduces a wireless, non-destructive method for monitoring the SWE of a dry snowpack. The system is based on an array of low-cost passive radiofrequency identification (RFID) tags, placed under the snow and read at 865–868 MHz by a reader located above the snow.

  • Nanoparticles are extensively used in industrial products or as food additives. However, despite their contribution to improving our quality of life, concerns have been raised regarding their potential impact on occupational and public health. To speed up research assessing nanoparticle-related hazards, this study was undertaken to identify early markers of harmful effects on the lungs.

  • Iron-sulfur (Fe-S) clusters are inorganic prosthetic groups in proteins composed exclusively of iron and inorganic sulfide. These cofactors are required in a wide range of critical cellular pathways. Iron-sulfur clusters do not form spontaneously in vivo; several proteins are required to mobilize sulfur and iron, assemble and traffic-nascent clusters. Bacteria have developed several Fe-S assembly systems, such as the ISC, NIF, and SUF systems.

  • Bacillus cereus is a food-borne Gram-positive pathogen. The emetic reference strain B. cereus AH187 is surrounded by a proteinaceous surface layer (S-layer) that contributes to its physico-chemical surface properties, and promotes its adhesion in response to starvation conditions. The S-layer produced by B.

  • Our understanding of the interplay between skin microbiota and the skin’s health status is growing. Consequently, the cosmetics industry is increasingly concerned with ensuring that beauty products do not adversely affect this microbiota and skin health. Prior to implementing demanding sequencing-based analyses of skin microbiota, an agile approach is needed to provide a first estimate of the short-term impact of cosmetic ingredients on the viability of skin microbiota.

  • As the need for efficient digital circuits is ever growing in the industry, the design of such systems remains daunting, requiring both expertise and time. In an attempt to close the gap between software development and hardware design, powerful features such as functional and object-oriented programming have been used to define new languages, known as Hardware Construction Languages.

  • Numerous ototoxic drugs, such as some antibiotics and chemotherapeutics, are both cochleotoxic and vestibulotoxic (causing hearing loss and vestibular disorders). However, the impact of some industrial cochleotoxic compounds on the vestibular receptor, if any, remains unknown.

  • Male infertility is common and complex, presenting a wide range of heterogeneous phenotypes. Although about 50% of cases are estimated to have a genetic component, the underlying cause often remains undetermined. Here, from whole-exome sequencing on samples from 168 infertile men with asthenoteratozoospermia due to severe sperm flagellum, we identified homozygous ZMYND12 variants in four unrelated patients. In sperm cells from these individuals, immunofluorescence revealed altered localization of DNAH1, DNALI1, WDR66, and TTC29.

  • Invariant natural killer T (NKT) cell subsets are defined based on their cytokine-production profiles and transcription factors. Their distribution is different in C57BL/6 (B6) and BALB/c mice, with a bias for NKT1 and NKT2/NKT17 subsets, respectively. Here, we show that the non-classical class I-like major histocompatibility complex CD1 molecules CD1d2, expressed in BALB/c and not in B6 mice, could not account for this difference.
