Data showed we obtained clinical isolates of Staphylococcus aureus including Methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) and Methicillin-sensitive S. aureus (MSSA) strains and evaluated the antibacterial efficacy of prodigiosin alone or in combination with different metal ions on clinical isolates of MRSA and MSSA strains. The results showed the metal ions Cu(II), Al(III), and Zn(II) can inhibit the cell growth of MRSA and MSSA at concentrations between 0.1 mM and 1.5 mM. and we found that also Zn(II) and Al(III) in combination with PG resulted in a significant synergistic antibacterial effect against MRSA and MSSA.

Hypothesis: Does dogs exhibit different protein profile of seminal plasma and spermatozoa among breeds? What data shows: These data show the proteomic profile and its respectively gene ontology of seminal plasma and sperm cells of four purebred dogs (Golden Retriever n = 3, Bernese Mountain Dog n = 4, Great Dane n = 3, Maremmano-Abruzzese Sheepdog n = 3), with mean ages and standard deviation of 4,0 ± 1,0 years (Golden Retriever), 2,0 ± 1,0 years (Bernese Mountain Dog), 1,4 ± 0,5 years (Great Dane) and 4,0 ± 0,7 years (Maremmano-Abruzzese Sheepdog), kenneled at Sao Paulo State, Brazil. Besides How it was gathered: Entire second fraction and a portion of the third semen fraction were collected into a silicone funnel attached to a graduated plastic tube by manual stimulation of the penis in the presence of a teaser bitch, when possible. The semen was subjectively evaluated at the kennel, and only ejaculate within normal seminal parameters considered for dogs, according to Kustritz et al. (2007), were used in this study. Spermatozoa and seminal plasma were separated by centrifugation and prepared individually for proteomic analysis by ESI Q-Tof mass spectrometer. The gene ontology annotation of the proteins found within the samples was obtained using the UniprotKB website (www.uniprot.org), and considered the molecular function, biological process and cellular component categories. How the data can be interpreted: There are two folders dataset. The "Seminal plasma and sperm cell proteins" folder contain two folders, one with all seminal plasma proteins, and other folder with all sperm cell proteins, which have individual files named by breed for each dog (n=13). The “Gene ontology of seminal plasma and sperm cell proteins” contain three files: Table S1, Table S2, and Table S3. The file Table S1 contain all proteins found in seminal plasma of evaluated dogs and their respective gene ontology. The file Table S2 contain all proteins found in spermatozoa of all dogs evaluated and their respective gene ontology. The file Table S3 contain all common proteins found in seminal plasma and spermatozoa of evaluated dogs and their respective gene ontology. References: Kustritz R.

This data set presents supplementary material to Monroy, Oscar; Saucedo, Gerardo; Espinosa, Ruben (2020) Composting a digestate from the organic fraction of urban solid wastes (OFUSW), Revista Mexicana de Ingeniería Química. An interesting design approach to prepare a balanced composting mass is proposed based on the carbon to nitrogen ratio (C/N) and the minimum required inert material to promote aeration. By using Scheffe’s simplex centroid method to design an optimum mixture of three components (digestate, fresh OFUSW and sawdust), using two regression equations for two process variables (C/N and volatile solids), a solution is obtained for a compost with the adequate C/N for a biosolid and the highest organic matter degradation efficiency. This data set contains the diagrams (figures S1 and S2) of the experimental rigs (lab scale and bench scales compost reactors), describing air circulation, mixing and heating devices. Table S1 shows the elemental analysis (C, N and H; O is reported as the difference from the total) and the C/N of the initial compost components. Ten mixtures were prepared to yield a C/N between 25 and 35 and set to compost. The resulting C/N and volatile solids loss due to the composting process are shown in Table S2. From these results, two regression equations were obtained using PASW Statistics 18 software, which generated table S3 and the contour levels of the tricomponents plot (figure S3). Three of these initial mixtures tried in a 95 L bench scale compost batch reactor. The resulting compost was tested for toxicity with the germination index. The results of three different reactor runs were tried by triplicate with ten seeds each are shown in table S4.

Homer Legacy software is a well-known software for simulation of small hybrid energy systems that can be used for both design and research. This dataset is a set of files generated by Homer Legacy bringing the simulation results of hybrid energy systems over the last seven years, as a consequence of the research work led by Dr. Alexandre Beluco, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, in southern Brazil. This dataset is being published in conjunction with a paper in Data Science Journal, which presents further explanations about the hybrid energy systems that were simulated and the papers that publish and discuss the results. The readme.pdf file included in this dataset and the associated article provide more details. These files are made available both for their educational nature, as case studies, and for the possibilities of research that can always be opened from the dissemination of research data. The next steps of this research point to the study of the influence of energetic complementarity on the performance of hybrid systems and to the study of hybrid systems equipped with hybrid storage,

The wide disparity in adult body size observed both within and among animal taxa has long attracted widespread interest, with several general rules having been proposed to explain trends in body size evolution. Adult body size disparity among the cephalopod mollusks is remarkable, with adult body sizes ranging from a few centimeters to several meters. Some of the smallest cephalopods are found within Pickfordiateuthis, a group comprising four species of squid found in the western Atlantic and tropical eastern Pacific. Pickfordiateuthis pulchella, the type species of the genus, was initially proposed to be closely related to the loliginid squids (Loliginidae), with subsequent descriptions of additional species supporting a placement within Loliginidae. Pickfordiateuthis is remarkable in that all species reach sexual maturity at about one-fifth to one-tenth the size seen in most loliginid species. To date, no phylogenetic analyses have included representatives of Pickfordiateuthis. To infer the phylogenetic position of Pickfordiateuthis and explore its implications for body size evolution, we collected specimens of Pickfordiateuthis pulchella from Brazilian waters and sequenced regions of two loci—the mitochondrial large ribosomal subunit (rrnL a.k.a. 16S) gene and the nuclear gene rhodopsin. Maximum likelihood and Bayesian analyses of these sequences support a placement of Pickfordiateuthis pulchella as sister to a clade comprising the Western Hemisphere loliginid genera Doryteuthis and Lolliguncula. Analyses of body size evolution within Loliginidae suggest that a shift to a smaller body size optimum occurred along the lineage leading to P. pulchella, with some evidence of shifts toward larger sizes in the ancestors of Loligo and Sepioteuthis; these inferences seem to be robust to phylogenetic uncertainty and incomplete taxon sampling. The small size and juvenile-like morphological traits seen in adult Pickfordiateuthis (e.g., sepiolid-like fins and biserial sucker arrangement in the tentacles) may be due to paedomorphosis.
