Using multi-tracer inference to move beyond single-catchment ecohydrology
Protecting or restoring aquatic ecosystems in the face of growing anthropogenic pressures requires an understanding of hydrological and biogeochemical functioning across multiple spatial and temporal scales. Recent ...
Division of labour: tRNA methylation by the NSun2 tRNA methyltransferases Trm4a and Trm4b in fission yeast
Enzymes of the cytosine-5 RNA methyltransferase Trm4/NSun2 family methylate tRNAs at C48 and C49 in multiple tRNAs, as well as C34 and C40 in selected tRNAs. In contrast to most other organisms, fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces ...
Molecular characterization of a new Carlavirus detected in German Ulmus laevis (Pall.) by Illumina high throughput sequencing
A 150 years old population of 30 European white elms (Ulmus laevis Pall.) in the park of Caputh (federal state Brandenburg, Germany) was monitored regularly since 2010. Trees show a dieback and develop characteristic leaf ...
Molecular characterization of the movement and coat proteins of a new Elm mottle virus isolate infecting European white elm (Ulmus laevis Pall.)
European white elms (Ulmus laevis Pall.) growing in a park in Caputh near Berlin (Germany) were regularly monitored over a period of 18 years showing virus infection-like symptoms such as chloroses, chlorotic ringspots, ...
Cross-Talk between Dnmt2-Dependent tRNA Methylation and Queuosine Modification
Enzymes of the Dnmt2 family of methyltransferases have yielded a number of unexpected discoveries. The first surprise came more than ten years ago when it was realized that, rather than being DNA methyltransferases, Dnmt2 ...
A Note on the Depth-from-Defocus Mechanism of Jumping Spiders
Jumping spiders are capable of estimating the distance to their prey relying only on the information from one of their main eyes. Recently, it has been shown that jumping spiders perform this estimation based on image ...
