Health inequities in COVID-19 vaccination among the elderly: Case of Connecticut.

Hui Wang, Ran Xu, Shijin Qu, Marlene Schwartz, Aaron Adams, Xiang Chen,

<h4>Background</h4>In the United States, distribution plans for the COVID-19 vaccination were established at the state level. However, some states, such as Connecticut, followed an age-based strategy without considering occupations or co-morbid conditions due to its simplicity in implementation. This strategy raised concerns about exacerbating health inequities because it did not ... Read more >>

A comprehensive biochemical characterization of settlement stage leptocephalus larvae of bonefish (Albula vulpes).

Victoria Uribe, Paul S Wills, Jon M Shenker, Aaron J Adams, Sahar Mejri,

Little is known about early development of the near-threatened bonefish (Albula vulpes), a member of superorder Elopomorpha. Members of Elopomorpha are partially defined by their synapomorphic leptocephalus larval stage, for which the nutritional requirements are not well understood. Characterizing the nutritional profile, including major nutrients (such as lipids) used for ... Read more >>

Reproductive physiology of bonefishes (Albula spp.) across the Northwest Bahamas.

Sahar Mejri, Cameron Luck, Paul S Wills, Aaron Adams, Jonathan Shenker, Matthew J Ajemian,

Bonefishes (Albula spp.) are classified within the superorder Elopomorpha, which is comprised of over 1000 species that share a unique leptocephalus larval stage. Bonefishes have a circum-tropical distribution, inhabiting inshore shallow water flats and gathering in presumptive nearshore pre-spawn aggregations (PSA) during spawning months. These fishes support economically important recreational ... Read more >>

Quantitative assessment of a data-limited recreational bonefish fishery using a time-series of fishing guides reports.

Rolando O Santos, Jennifer S Rehage, Aaron J Adams, Brooke D Black, Jason Osborne, Emily K N Kroloff,

Recreational fisheries can be prone to severe declines, yet these fisheries, particularly catch-and-release, are often data-limited, constraining our ability to conduct stock assessments. A combination of catch and effort indices derived from fisheries-dependent data (FDD) gathered from fishing logbooks could be a powerful approach to inform these data gaps. This ... Read more >>

Scaffoldless tissue-engineered nerve conduit promotes peripheral nerve regeneration and functional recovery after tibial nerve injury in rats.

Aaron M Adams, Keith W VanDusen, Tatiana Y Kostrominova, Jacob P Mertens, Lisa M Larkin,

Damage to peripheral nerve tissue may cause loss of function in both the nerve and the targeted muscles it innervates. This study compared the repair capability of engineered nerve conduit (ENC), engineered fibroblast conduit (EFC), and autograft in a 10-mm tibial nerve gap. ENCs were fabricated utilizing primary fibroblasts and ... Read more >>

The effect of caffeine on skeletal muscle anabolic signaling and hypertrophy.

Timothy M Moore, Xavier M Mortensen, Conrad K Ashby, Alexander M Harris, Karson J Kump, David W Laird, Aaron J Adams, Jeremy K Bray, Ting Chen, David M Thomson,

Caffeine is a widely consumed stimulant with the potential to enhance physical performance through multiple mechanisms. However, recent in vitro findings have suggested that caffeine may block skeletal muscle anabolic signaling through AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK)-mediated inhibition of mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling pathway. This could negatively affect protein ... Read more >>

Bacteria associated with a tree-killing insect reduce concentrations of plant defense compounds.

Celia K Boone, Ken Keefover-Ring, Abigail C Mapes, Aaron S Adams, Jörg Bohlmann, Kenneth F Raffa,

Bark beetles encounter a diverse array of constitutive and rapidly induced terpenes when attempting to colonize living conifers. Concentrations of these compounds at entry sites can rapidly reach levels toxic to beetles, their brood, and fungal symbionts. Large numbers of beetles can overwhelm tree defenses via pheromone-mediated mass attacks, but ... Read more >>

Aaron S Adams, Frank O Aylward, Sandye M Adams, Nadir Erbilgin, Brian H Aukema, Cameron R Currie, Garret Suen, Kenneth F Raffa,

The mountain pine beetle, Dendroctonus ponderosae, is a subcortical herbivore native to western North America that can kill healthy conifers by overcoming host tree defenses, which consist largely of high terpene concentrations. The mechanisms by which these beetles contend with toxic compounds are not well understood. Here, we explore a ... Read more >>

Use of adipose-derived stem cells to fabricate scaffoldless tissue-engineered neural conduits in vitro.

A M Adams, E M Arruda, L M Larkin,

Peripheral nerve injuries resulting from trauma or disease often necessitate surgical intervention. Although the gold standard for such repairs uses nerve autografts, alternatives that do not require invasive harvesting of autologous nerve tissues are currently being designed and evaluated. We previously established the use of scaffoldless engineered neural conduits (ENCs) ... Read more >>

Responses of bark beetle-associated bacteria to host monoterpenes and their relationship to insect life histories.

Aaron S Adams, Celia K Boone, Jörg Bohlmann, Kenneth F Raffa,

Bark beetles that colonize living conifers and their microbial associates encounter constitutive and induced chemical defenses of their host. Monoterpene hydrocarbons comprise a major component of these allelochemicals, and many are antibiotic to insects, fungi, and bacteria. Some bark beetle species exhaust these defenses by killing their host through mass ... Read more >>

Tri-trophic linkages in disease: pathogen transmission to rainbow trout through stonefly prey.

Sandra M Adams, Aaron S Adams, William E Holben,

Relationships between macroinvertebrates and microorganisms in aquatic environments are only poorly understood despite the fact that many aquatic macroinvertebrates feed on microbial biofilms during some life stage. Better understanding of trophic interactions between microbial biofilms, macroinvertebrates, and fish may also help control fish diseases and loss of natural resources. It ... Read more >>
