welcome to APSselect

APSselect is a collection of the very best original research papers published by the American Physiological Society. Each month, the most outstanding recently published papers from our ten research journals are selected and made available through this multi-journal website. Selections from previous months may be viewed on the archive page.

Selections - January 2017

American Journal of Physiology - Cell Physiology Glycolysis and oxidative phosphorylation are essential for purinergic receptor-mediated angiogenic responses in vasa vasorum endothelial cells Journal of Neurophysiology Caveolin-1 regulation of disrupted-in-schizophrenia-1 as a potential therapeutic target for schizophrenia
American Journal of Physiology - Endocrinology and Metabolism High-fat diet-induced obesity regulates MMP3 to modulate depot- and sex-dependent adipose expansion in C57BL/6J mice American Journal of Physiology - Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology Sex differences in the metabolic dysfunction and insulin resistance of skeletal muscle glucose transport following high fructose ingestion
American Journal of Physiology - Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology The protective effect of apolipoprotein in models of trophoblast invasion and preeclampsia Journal of Applied Physiology The effect of obesity on the contractile performance of isolated mouse soleus, EDL, and diaphragm muscles
American Journal of Physiology - Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology Digital 3D reconstructions using histological serial sections of lung tissue including the alveolar capillary network

What is APSselect?

The overarching goal of APSselect is to shine a bright light on the outstanding scientific discoveries published by our Society each month. APSselect endeavors to be a timely, convenient, and concise “one-stop shopping” mechanism to broadly transmit our most exceptional work. APSselect aims to serve as a virtual “front porch” of the American Physiological Society’s scholarly home. In doing so, APSselect serves and enlivens all 11,000+ APS members. APSselect is also an ideal mechanism to enable a broader mission: to promote excellence of the physiological discipline to biomedical researchers in other fields. . . . read more
