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 - April 2017

American Journal of Physiology - Cell Physiology Identification of a Mammalian Silicon Transporter American Journal of Physiology - Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology Sport-Related Concussion Induces Transient Cardiovascular Autonomic Dysfunction
American Journal of Physiology - Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology Glucose elicits cephalic-phase insulin release in mice by activating K(ATP) channels in taste cells American Journal of Physiology - Heart and Circulatory Physiology High-throughput screening identifies microRNAs that target Nox2 and improve function following acute myocardial infarction
Journal of Applied Physiology Decreases in Maximal Oxygen Uptake Following Long-duration Spaceflight: Role of Convective and Diffusive O2 Transport Mechanisms Journal of Neurophysiology Magnetic resonance spectroscopy of current hand amputees reveals evidence for neuronal-level changes in former sensorimotor cortex
Journal of Applied Physiology Two weeks of moderate intensity continuous training, but not high intensity interval training increases insulin-stimulated intestinal glucose uptake American Journal of Physiology - Renal Physiology Inhibiting aerobic glycolysis suppresses renal interstitial fibroblasts activation and renal fibrosis
Journal of Neurophysiology High Cardiorespiratory Fitness in Early to Late Middle-Age Preserves the Cortical Circuitry Associated with Brain-Heart Integration During Volitional Exercise American Journal of Physiology - Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology Lung pericyte-like cells are functional immune sentinel cells

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
