Symbiosis between social spiders and yeast: the role in prey attraction

, : Symbiosis between social spiders and yeast: the role in prey attraction. Psyche 94(1-2): 151-158

Evidence is provided that the social spider Mallos gregalis from Mexico uses a scented bait to attract prey. These odours are produced by yeasts growing on the discarded carcasses of muscoid flies which have been incorporated into the communal nest.

Pre-play signals that cost nothing are sometimes thought to be of no significance in interactions which are not games of pure common interest.

A series of oxadiazolone bioisosteres of pregabalin 1 and gabapentin 2 were prepared, and several were found to exhibit similar potency for the alpha(2)-delta subunit of voltage-gated calcium channels. Oxadiazolone 9 derived from 2 achieved low br...

We previously showed that vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) protects against bacterial pathogen-induced epithelial barrier disruption and colitis, although the mechanisms remain poorly defined. The aim of the current study was to identify cellul...
