Physiological Reports Publishes Inaugural Issue

Physiological ReportsEverything about Physiological Reports is different. A collaboration between The Physiological Society and the American Physiological Society, the journal offers the highest quality peer review and is proudly open access. Now, here’s your chance to see where it’s taken us, who’s submitted, and the incredible research that we’ve been able to publish so far.

Here are some of the high quality papers which we have published so far:
purple_lock_open Elevated pulmonary arterial pressure and altered expression of Ddah1 and Arg1 in mice lacking cavin-1/PTRF
Karl Swärd, Mardjaneh K. Sadegh, Michiko Mori, Jonas S. Erjefält and Catarina Rippe
Summary: Mutations in caveolin-1 give rise to a heritable form of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Novel caveolae proteins have been identified in recent years. Here, we demonstrate that mice lacking cavin-1 develop PAH accompanied by reciprocal changes in Ddah1 and Arg1.

purple_lock_open Enhanced force production in old age is not a far stretch: an investigation of residual force enhancement and muscle architecture
Geoffrey A. Power, Demetri P. Makrakos, Charles L. Rice and Anthony A. Vandervoort
Summary: Ultrasound images from a representative older adult at LONG muscle length showing fascicle length (FL) and angle of pennation (?) measurement at rest, during the isometric reference MVC, and during the isometric steady-state following lengthening.

purple_lock_open Interlimb interactions during bilateral voluntary elbow flexion tasks in chronic hemiparetic stroke
Shuo-Hsiu Chang, Ana Durand-Sanchez, Craig DiTommaso and Sheng Li
Summary: This study found that there existed activation level dependent interactions between the impaired and nonimpaired limbs during bilateral force production tasks with progressive increase of contribution from the impaired side. Motor overflow to the contralateral side was greater on the impaired limb and increased proportionally with the level of activation. These novel findings indicated that, among other compensatory mechanisms, ipsilateral corticospinal projections from the nonlesioned hemisphere play an important role in interlimb interactions in chronic stroke, in addition to unbalanced interhemispheric inhibition.
