We demonstrate spin-torque induced coherent auto-oscillation in magnetic tunnel junctions of composition PtMn/CoFe/Ru/CoFeB/MgO/CoFeB and of low resistance-area product. At the generation threshold, we observe a strong line narrowing down to 6 MHz at 300 K and a dramatic increase in oscillator power, yielding spectrally pure oscillations with extre...
•Australian Jurassic plants reveal damage from seven arthropod feeding strategies.•Damage occurs on numerous ferns and gymnosperms but is prominent on pteridosperms.•Australian Jurassic plants had modest physical defences against arthropod herbivory.•Orthoptera, Coleoptera, Hemiptera and Odonata likely caused most plant damage.

Increasingly, research focus in the fields of biology and medicine moves from the investigation of single phenomena to the analysis of complex cause and effect relationships. The clarification of complicated relationships requires the consideration of different domains, such as gene expression, protein, and metabolite data. Furthermore, it is often...
The CRISPR-associated protein Cas9 is an RNA-guided DNA endonuclease that uses RNA-DNA complementarity to identify target sites for sequence-specific double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) cleavage. In its native context, Cas9 acts on DNA substrates exclusively because both binding and catalysis require recognition of a short DNA sequence, known as the protos...
Human Resource Management
The phenomenon of emerging-market organizations appointing foreign executives from distant cultural contexts to headquarters positions has stirred public and academic interest. Emerging giants, aspiring multinationals, and even local organizations that focus entirely on domestic markets have joined the global hunt for management talent. This articl...
The use of the products derived from the olive tree on human health dates back centuries. In several civilizations, the olive tree had and still has a very strong cultural and religious symbolism. Notably, the official seal and emblem of the World Health Organization features the rod of Asclepius over a world map surrounded by olive tree branches, ...
Annals of pediatric cardiology
We report a case of type-A Coffin-Siris syndrome (CSS) with a unique constellation of congenital heart defects. A 17-year-old Indian boy was referred to our hospital for central cyanosis with features of right heart failure. The cardiac abnormalities included biventricular outflow tract obstruction, small atrial septal defect (ASD), subaortic ventr...
Evidence has been reported for quantity discrimination in mammals and birds and, to a lesser extent, fish and amphibians. For the latter species, however, whether quantity discrimination would reflect sensitivity to number or to the continuous physical variables that covary with number is unclear. Here we reported a series of experiments with frogs...

The unfolded protein response (UPR) mediates the adaptation of the secretory pathway (SP) to fluctuations in cellular protein demand or to environmental variations. Recently, drug screenings have confirmed the therapeutic potential of targeting the UPR in cancer models. However, the UPR may not be the only druggable target of the SP. Moreover, rece...
