It is the time of the Rebecca Riots when economic turmoil and unjust taxes have left the communities of south Wales in dire poverty with many on the brink of starvation. A time when young men ride through the night smashing and burning the symbols of their oppression. The Mortymer family have left their home in the iron-making country of Blaenafon to seek work in the coal mines of the south. Young Jethro Mortymer decides that he must join the rioters in their bitter struggle even as he is tortured by his own struggle to conceal the love he has for the beautiful Mari, his brother's wife. THE HOSTS OF REBECCA is a brilliant continuation of Alexander Cordell's classic story of mid-nineteenth century Wales which began with THE RAPE OF THE FAIR COUNTRY.

Author: Rebecca B. Blank
As a complex, multicellular, and relatively large pathogen, Schistosoma mansoni has co-evolved with its vertebrate host to maximize its longevity and transmission while evading the host immune response. We have previously observed that parasite development is severely impaired in recombination activating gene (RAG)-1 -/- mouse hosts, which lack an adaptive immune response, Schistosomes grew slower, produced fewer eggs, and did not pair as well as those in wild-type hosts. To elucidate the role of the adaptive immune response in promoting parasite development, we undertook a number of cell reconstitution and cell depletion studies. By reconstituting RAG-1 -/- mice with B cells, CD8 + T cells, or CD4 + T cells prior to infection, we determined that only a CD4 + T cell population was able to rescue worm development. These observations were corroborated by data showing that depletion of CD4 + T cells in wild-type mice and subsequent infection produced an impaired growth phenotype, similar to that observed in RAG-1 -/- mice. These observations suggested that immature schistosomes must sense the host environment, in particular the immune fitness of its host, in order to initiate a period of rapid growth and sexual maturation. Specifically, we found that CD4 + [alpha beta] T cells were crucial in promoting parasite development. A clear understanding of how CD4 + [alpha beta] T cells respond to prepatent schistosome infection is essential to elucidating the mechanism by which CD4 + T cells act to regulate parasite development. To determine the complex interactions between the schistosome and host, three lines of inquiry were undertaken. First, intracellular cytokine production by hepatic CD4 + T cells throughout early infection was analyzed. Second, T cell cytokines that may be required for parasite development were surveyed by infecting mice that possess targeted deletions in specific cytokine signaling pathways. Third, microarray experiments with both S. mansoni cDNA and oligonucleotide-based arrays were performed to analyze global gene expression patterns in developing parasites from either wildtype or immunodeficient hosts.

Transmission and maintenance of influenza A viruses (IAVs) between and across species are dependent on viruses remaining infectious while associated with both host and environmental components of the maintenance cycle.
Author: Rebecca Lynne Poulson
Transmission and maintenance of influenza A viruses (IAVs) between and across species are dependent on viruses remaining infectious while associated with both host and environmental components of the maintenance cycle. Transmission and maintenance of IAVs in wild aquatic avian reservoirs, primarily associated with the orders Anseriformes (ducks, geese) and Charadriiformes (gulls, shorebirds), are also dependent on short and long-distance bird movements which serve to link susceptible hosts. The first research objective addressed the potential role of environment in cross species transmission, specifically by characterizing the effects of temperature, pH, and salinity on the persistence and infectivity of swine and pandemic human IAVs in a distilled water model. The viruses did not differ significantly in their responses to these variables, indicating no apparent environmental adaptation as related to the movement of IAV into different host systems. The second and third objectives were aimed at understanding environmental persistence, transmission, and maintenance of IAV in a unique natural system: shorebirds at Delaware Bay. The stabilities of two of 19 IAV isolated from environmental sources and one Ruddy Turnstone (Arenaria interpres) at Delaware Bay were assessed under temperature, pH, salinity, and substrate conditions comparable to those found in the local microenvironment. All viruses remained infectious in a sand milieu for seven days, indicating that the beach environment can support short-term maintenance of IAV. Finally, the genomes of IAV isolated from shorebirds at overwintering sites in the southeastern United States were compared to those isolated from shorebirds at Delaware Bay several weeks to months later. A high degree of genetic similarity was detected for all eight gene segments, though the transfer of a homologous genome from winter to spring sites was not identified. This indicates that migrating Ruddy Turnstones are one source for introducing IAV into the Delaware Bay ecosystem. Once introduced, these viruses reassort with and are assimilated into the larger IAV gene pool at this unique site. Results of these projects allowed for the deconstruction of the factors responsible for persistence and movement of virus, and the subsequent reconstruction of the dynamics of these mechanisms at an ecological hotspot for IAV 0́3 Delaware Bay.

The Isle of Man is a Fairy place. If you know where to look, you may still find the little people, as they are called. On the Island lived a Chinese boy, Hu, with his father and his dog Kau Kau. One day Hu's father said that he was going to Liverpool to bring home a new wife, and a new mother for Hu. But Hu did not want a new mother. So he too his father's dinghy and sailed away with Kau Kau to the tiny island called the Calf of Man. Nobody knew where he had gone. But the birds and animals came to his aid. With Basking Shark speeding though the waves, the prow rope of the dinghy in his jaws, and with Don Dolphin racing alongside, while the birds flew in clouds overhead, Hu was taken to the Little People. Surely they would help him... SEA URCHIN is a wonderful fable for younger readers from the bestselling author of the Mortymer Trilogy.
