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 - December 2015

American Journal of Physiology - Heart and Circulatory Physiology The role of ß-arrestin2-dependent signaling in thoracic aortic aneurysm formation in a murine model of Marfan syndrome American Journal of Physiology - Endocrinology and Metabolism Vasodilator responses and endothelin-dependent vasoconstriction in metabolically healthy obesity and the metabolic syndrome
American Journal of Physiology - Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology Folic acid supplementation during high-fat diet feeding restores AMPK activation via an AMP-LKB1-dependent mechanism American Journal of Physiology - Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology Accelerated age-related decline in renal and vascular function in female rats following early-life growth restriction
American Journal of Physiology - Cell Physiology O-GlcNAcase overexpression reverses coronary endothelial cell dysfunction in type 1 diabetic mice American Journal of Physiology - Cell Physiology Autonomous requirements of the Menkes disease protein in the nervous system
Journal of Applied Physiology Less pronounced response to exercise in healthy relatives to type 2 diabetic subjects compared with controls American Journal of Physiology - Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology DNA damage response at telomeres contributes to lung aging and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

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
