Both ground-based and satellite data show that parts of Antarctica have entered a period of rapid climate change, which already affects the functioning and productivity of limnetic ecosystems. To predict the consequences of future climate anomalies for lacustrine microbial communities, we not only need better baseline information on their biodiversity but also on the climaterelated environmental factors structuring these communities. Here we applied denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) of the small subunit ribosomal DNA (SSU rDNA) to assess the genetic composition and distribution of Cyanobacteria and eukaryotes in 37 benthic microbial mat samples from east Antarctic lakes. The lakes were selected to span a wide range of environmental gradients governed by differences in lake morphology and chemical limnology across 5 ice-free oases. Sequence analysis of selected DGGE bands revealed a high degree of potential endemism among the Cyanobacteria (mainly represented by Oscillatoriales and Nostocales), and the presence of a variety of protists (alveolates, stramenopiles and green algae), fungi, tardigrades and nematodes, which corroborates previous microscopy-based observations. Variation partitioning analyses revealed that the microbial mat community structure is largely regulated by both geographical and local environmental factors of which salinity (and related variables), lake water depth and nutrient concentrations are of major importance. These 3 groups of environmental variables have previously been shown to change drastically in Antarctica in response to climate change. Together, these results have obvious consequences for predicting the trajectory of biodiversity under changing climate conditions and call for the continued assessment of the biodiversity of these unique ecosystems.

AIMS: We assessed changes in pulse pressure and heart rate during a squatting test, as indirect markers of arterial stiffness and cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy, respectively, according to age and sex in patients with Type 1 diabetes mellitus. METHODS: We evaluated 160 diabetic patients, divided into four groups of 20 men and 20 women according to age (G1, 20-30 years old; G2, 31-40 years old; G3, 41-50 years old; and G4, 51-60 years old), and 160 non-diabetic matched control subjects. Each subject underwent a 3 min posture test (standing-squatting-standing) with continuous measurement of arterial blood pressure and heart rate by a Finapres device. Overall values throughout the test, baseline levels in initial standing position and squatting-induced changes in pulse pressure, heart rate and the pulse pressure x heart rate product were compared between diabetic patients and healthy control subjects. RESULTS: In the standing position, a greater increase in pulse pressure and lower reduction in heart rate with age led to a significantly higher pulse pressure x heart rate product in diabetic patients compared with control subjects. In the squatting position, a more marked pulse pressure increase in the absence of appropriate reduction in heart rate resulted in a greater rise in the pulse pressure x heart rate product in diabetic patients than in healthy subjects. No major differences were noted between the sexes, with the exception of a stronger relationship between pulse pressure and age in the female population with diabetes. Squatting-derived indices of cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy were also noted with increasing age in diabetic patients. CONCLUSIONS: The marked increase in the pulse pressure x heart rate product ('pulsatile stress') according to age, combined with cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy, may contribute to the higher cardiovascular risk of patients with Type 1 diabetes.

The binding mode of telomestatin to G-quadruplex DNA has been investigated using electrospray mass spectrometry, by detecting the intact complexes formed in ammonium acetate. The mass measurements show the incorporation of one extra ammonium ion in the telomestatin complexes. Experiments on telomestatin alone also show that the telomestatin alone is able to coordinate cations in a similar way as a crown ether. Finally, density functional theory calculations suggest that in the G-quadruplex-telomestatin complex, potassium or ammonium cations are located between the telomestatin and a G-quartet. This study underlines that monovalent cation coordination capabilities should be integrated in the rational design of G-quadruplex binding ligands. [less ▲]

A library of triazole-based telomeric quadruplex-selective ligands has been developed that mimic an established family of tri-substituted acridine-based ligands, using crystal structure data as a starting-point for computer-based design. Binding affinities, estimated by electrospray mass spectrometry, are in accord with the design concept [less ▲]
