23:23 FightAging.OrgPresenting the SASP Atlas for the Senescence-Associated Secretory Phenotype

The presence of growing numbers of lingering senescent cells is one of the root causes of aging. Vast numbers of cells become senescent every day, but near all are quickly removed, either via programmed cell death or the actions of the immune system. A tiny number survive, however, and that alone would eventually be enough to cause age-related disease and death. While senescent cells never rise to very large fractions of all of the cells in a given tissue, they cause considerable harm via a potent mix of secreted signals known as the senescence-associated secretory phenotype, or SASP. The SASP causes chronic inflammation and destructive remodeling of the nearby extracellular matrix. Further, it changes the behavior of other cells for the worse, including increasing their […]

Author(s): Johannes Engelmayer, Xiao Lin, Christoph P. Grams, Raphael German, Tobias Fröhlich, Joachim Hemberger, Kamran Behnia, and Thomas Lorenz Dilute metallicity of doped quantum-paralectric SrTiO3 attracts continued attention. The authors present a study of charge transport of the related material EuTiO3. Using oxygen-deficient single crystals to vary the carrier density n, they derive an evolution of the carrier mobility in EuTiO3−δ similar to that in SrTiO3−δ. Both materials show AT2 resistivity with a universal A(n) dependence, which is described remarkably well within a simple three-band model. An analogous behavior is present in K1−xBaxTaO3, another doped quantum paralectric. Thus this study suggests a common generic evolution of metallicity with carrier density in doped quantum-paralectric perovskite oxides, which only weakly depends

Author(s): Luca Galletti, Timo Schumann, David A. Kealhofer, Manik Goyal, and Susanne Stemmer In a Weyl orbit, the Fermi arc surface states on opposite surfaces of the topological semimetal are connected through bulk Weyl or Dirac nodes. Having a real-space component, these orbits are expected to accumulate a sample thickness dependent phase. Here, it is shown that small variations in the carrier density, in combination with the relative insensitivity of the low-field Hall data to such variations, does not allow for invoking Weyl orbits based on the thickness dependence for realistic samples.
