SLC6A15, a neutral amino acid transporter predominantly expressed in neurons, has been recently suggested to play a role in the aetiology of major depressive disorder. The purpose of this study was to explore a putative mechanism of action of the transporter in the brain and to characterize behavioural and molecular changes following manipulation of SLC6A15 ...

Japanese banks pay a premium to borrow via repos from US MMFs, even for overnight repos with US Treasury collateral. We show that money markets are not perfectly competitive, and find that MMF bargaining power and the inelastic dollar demand of Japanese banks can explain the premium. Moreover, Japanese banks require funding that improves their ... Read more about "The Japan Repo Premium and US Dollar Intermediation"

Anharmonic effects can generally be treated within perturbation theory. Such an approach breaks down when the harmonic solution is dynamically unstable or when the anharmonic corrections of the phonon energies are larger than the harmonic frequencies themselves. This situation occurs near lattice-related second-order phase-transitions such as charge-density-wave (CDW) or ferroelectric instabilities or in H-containing materials, ...

Abstract: In Ecology, we usually rely on the tacit assumption that ecosystems are responding linearly to environmental constrains, i.e. one condition of the forcing variable should trigger one and only one ecosystem state. At the opposite, non-linearities imply bifurcations in ecosystem responses to environmental drivers. Herein, we show the existence of non-linear responses of lakes ...
