Pliocene Warmth, Polar Amplification, and Stepped Pleistocene Cooling Recorded in NE Arctic Russia

Understanding the evolution of Arctic polar climate from the protracted warmth of the middle Pliocene into the earliest glacial cycles in the Northern Hemisphere has been hindered by the lack of continuous, highly resolved Arctic time series. Evidence from Lake El’gygytgyn, in northeast (NE) Arctic Russia, shows that 3.6 to 3.4 million years ago, summer temperatures were ~8°C warmer than today, when the partial pressure of CO2 was ~400 parts per million. Multiproxy evidence suggests extreme warmth and polar amplification during the middle Pliocene, sudden stepped cooling events during the Pliocene-Pleistocene transition, and warmer than present Arctic summers until ~2.2 million years ago, after the onset of Northern Hemispheric glaciation. Our data are consistent with sea-level records and other proxies indicating that Arctic cooling was insufficient to support large-scale ice sheets until the early Pleistocene.

许多神经性退化疾病,比如阿尔茨海默氏症,帕金森氏症和多聚谷氨酰胺疾病, 都有一个共同的致病机理:由于一些突变蛋白质拒绝退化或者一些“野生型”蛋白质过度表现导致蛋白质异常积聚。 致病蛋白质的水平受某些基因网络影响,通过对那些基因网络的筛选, 我们已经开发了一套方法来确定这种神经无序生长的治疗切入

和其他种类蝙蝠一样,埃及果蝠总是成群出现,这可以在一定程度上解释为何它们是埃博拉病毒和一些其他病毒的宿主。 主要问题是,蝙蝠栖息地正在被破坏,它们越来越多地被迫生活在接近人类住所的树上。 近日关于中东一种致命新病毒起源于蝙蝠的研究引发了人们对一个持久谜团的重新关注:蝙蝠到底哪里有问题? 病毒
