bioRxiv - Obesity is a risk factor for Alzheimer disease (AD), but underlying mechanisms are not clear. We analyzed peripheral clearance of amyloid-beta (Abeta) in overweight...

bioRxiv - Loss-of-function mutations in Cdk5rap2 is associated with the developmental disorders, primary microcephaly and primordial dwarfism, but the underlying molecular link remains obscure. Here, we...

bioRxiv - The exuberant proliferation of herbivorous insects is attributed to their associations with plants. Despite abundant studies on insect-plant interactions, we do not know whether...

bioRxiv - In species with polygenic sex determination, multiple male- and/or female-determining loci on different proto-sex chromosomes segregate as polymorphisms within populations. The extent to which...
