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 - August 2016

American Journal of Physiology - Endocrinology and Metabolism The effects of paternal high-fat diet exposure on offspring metabolism with epigenetic changes in the mouse adiponectin and leptin gene promoters Journal of Neurophysiology Optogenetic manipulation of neural circuits in awake marmosets
Physiological Genomics Interactions between the colonic transcriptome, metabolome, and microbiome in mouse models of obesity-induced intestinal cancer American Journal of Physiology - Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology E-cigarette use results in suppression of immune and inflammatory-response genes in nasal epithelial cells similar to cigarette smoke
American Journal of Physiology - Endocrinology and Metabolism Jejunal administration of glucose enhances acyl ghrelin suppression in obese humans American Journal of Physiology - Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology High salt induces autocrine actions of ET-1 on inner medullary collecting duct NO production via upregulated ETB receptor expression
American Journal of Physiology - Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology Exaggerated sympathoexcitatory reflexes develop with changes in the rostral ventrolateral medulla in obese Zucker rats American Journal of Physiology - Cell Physiology Differentiation of human bronchial epithelial cells: role of hydrocortisone in development of ion transport pathways involved in mucociliary clearance
Journal of Applied Physiology Lifelong strength training mitigates the age-related decline in efferent drive

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
