      The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is a complex network of membranes involved in protein and lipid synthesis, ion homeostasis, protein quality control and organelle communication. It is also a source of membrane-bounded vesicles called autophagosomes, the vehicles for the self-digesting cellular process of autophagy. This paper shows how the ER itself is targeted for degradation by autophagy — a process that could ensure constant ER turnover in response to cellular requirements.

      Authors find the protein FAM134B is an ER-resident receptor that facilitates 'ER-phagy'. Downregulation of this protein — mutations of which can cause sensory neuropathy in humans — resulted in expanded ER structures and degeneration of mouse sensory neurons. In particular, authors demonstrated that this process is conserved in yeast, where Atg40 is enriched in the cortical and cytoplasmic ER, loading these ER subdomains into autophagosomes. A further ER-phagy receptor, Atg39, localizes to the perinuclear ER (or the nuclear envelope) and induces autophagic sequestration of a part of the nucleus, thus ensuring cell survival under nitrogen-deprived conditions.

    1. I may not understand this right, but if I'm creating an original idea, who am I citing for? Maybe it's just something I never understood properly how that worked and that's the issue. Part of the reason I was asking if anyone knew of actual academic research that had been published while using a ZK was so I could see how it worked, in action.

      u/ruthlessreuben, as a historian, you're likely to appreciate some variations which aren't as Luhmann-centric. Try some of the following:

      The following note taking manuals (or which cover it in part) all bear close similarities to Luhmann's system, but were written by historians and related to the ideas of "historical method":

    1. 10 M. Hamasaki, T. Noda, M. Baba, Y. Ohsumi, Starvation triggers the delivery of the endoplasmic reticulum to the vacuole via autophagy in yeast. Traffic 6, 56–65 (2005).

      Known as the first article to described ER-phagy.

      In this article, authors characterized the fate of the ER in response to starvation, and demonstrated a significant linkage to autophagy.

      Abstract: Autophagy is a survival mechanism necessary for eukaryotic cells to overcome nutritionally challenged environments. When autophagy is triggered, cells degrade nonselectively engulfed cytosolic proteins and free ribosomes that are evenly distributed throughout the cytoplasm. The resulting pool of free amino acids is used to sustain processes crucial for survival. Here we characterize an autophagic degradation of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) under starvation conditions in addition to cytosolic protein degradation. Golgi membrane protein was not engulfed by the autophagosome under the same conditions, indicating that the uptake of ER by autophagosome was the specific event. Although the ER exists in a network structure that is mutually connected and resides predominantly around the nucleus and beneath the plasma membrane, most of autophagosome engulfed ER. The extent of the ER uptake by autophagy was nearly identical to that of the soluble cytosolic proteins. This phenomenon was explained by the appearance of fragmented ER membrane structures in almost all autophagosomes. Furthermore, ER dynamism is required for this process: ER uptake by autophagosomes occurs in an actin-dependent manner.

    1. 3. D. E. Ingber, FASEB J. 20, 811 (2006).

      In this review article, by well-known tissue engineer Donald Ingber, he discusses the various factors that influence cellular growth and development. Ingber notes that mechanical forces, such as tension and compression, can have a significant impact on cell division, growth, and communication, particularly in the lungs during inhalation and exhalation. Utilizing 3D cell cultures and lung-on-a-chip technology could potentially replicate these mechanical forces, leading to more accurate representation of human biology in drug testing. This could eventually lead to animal studies becoming obsolete!

      The following research papers discuss the potential of microfluidic devices and surface patterning to create advanced cell culture models. For example, Khademhosseini et al. discuss the potential for microfluidic devices to assess the problems with modern 3D tissue models. For example, Langer et al. discuss how standard cell cultures cannot replicate the repetitive mechanical strain that human organs such as lungs and gut undergo every day. The authors also discuss how oxygen and protein transport through these tissue scaffolds does not accurately mimic human conditions. While attempts have been made to improve cell-cell connectivity and nutrient transport in 3D cultures, microfluidic technology provides a potential pathway to generate accurate and viable organ models.

    3. 2. F. Pampaloni, E. G. Reynaud, E. H. K. Stelzer, Nat. Rev. Mol. Cell Biol. 8, 839 (2007).

      Pampaloni et al. claim that 3D cell culture models help mimic the functions of living tissues to predict the cellular responses of real organisms.

      The authors believe that 3D cell cultures will have a strong impact on drug screening and can also decrease the use of laboratory animals for drug discovery and development.

    4. 32. V. L. Colvin, Nat. Biotechnol. 21, 1166 (2003).

      Vicki L. Colvin explores the potential environmental impact of engineered nanomaterials. There is a growing debate on whether the environmental and social costs of nanotechnology outweigh its many benefits. Today, very few studies have been done to study the environmental effects of nanomaterials!

    5. 41. C. Zhang, Z. Q. Zhao, N. A. Abdul Rahim, D. van Noort, H. Yu, Lab Chip 9, 3185 (2009).

      Zhang et. al have developed a multi-channel 3D microfluidic cell culture system with compartmentalized microenvironments to culture different 3D cells that can simultaneously represent different organs in the body! This system demonstrates potential applications in human drug screening to supplement or replace animal models.

    6. 31. A. Nel, T. Xia, L. Mädler, N. Li, Science 311, 622 (2006).

      Nel et. al discusses potential toxic effects of nanomaterials; structures with one dimension of 100 nanometers or less, that are used in a variety of commercial applications such as semiconductors, drug carriers, and cosmetics. Due to their size, nanoparticles exhibit unique properties, but this also makes them potentially harmful to biological systems and the environment. The authors caution that it is crucial to establish principles and testing protocols to ensure the safe manufacture and use of nanomaterials in the market.

    7. 22. S. Takayama et al., Adv. Mater. 13, 570 (2001).

      Takayama et. al report a new way of manufacturing microchannels out of PDMS that can be smaller than the width of a human hair! The process involves the controlled etching of a PDMS slab to create novel microchannel geometries. The authors have high hopes for their technology: "We believe that these procedures will enable new types of studies in fundamental cell biology, and that they will also be useful in the microfabrication of devices that require a high-level of control over the behavior of cells"

    8. 19. G. J. Mahler, M. B. Esch, R. P. Glahn, M. L. Shuler, Biotechnol. Bioeng. 104, 193 (2009).

      Mahler et. al have developed a microscale cell culture of the GI tract that includes digestion, a mucus layer, and cell populations. This can provide rapid, inexpensive, and accurate predictions of the body's response to drugs and chemicals, as demonstrated by their experiments with acetaminophen!

    9. 12. D. Huh et al., Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A.104, 18886 (2007).

      Huh et. al have developed a microfabricated airway system that can mimic physiologic or pathologic liquid flows found in the respiratory system! The authors engineered an on-chip human airway and demonstrated cellular-level lung injury, similar to symptoms characteristic of a wide range of pulmonary diseases.

    10. 1. J. C. Davila, R. J. Rodriguez, R. B. Melchert, D. Acosta Jr., Annu. Rev. Pharmacol. Toxicol. 38, 63 (1998).

      Davilla et. al. discuss the advantages and disadvantages of lab-grown cell cultures that can mimic the function of kidneys and livers. While these cultures are inexpensive and can help measure drug-specific tissue interactions at a cellular/molecular level, the models do not accurately account for molecular transport and toxicity interactions between tissues and organs. This is because the cultures are grown on a flat surface, rather than in a 3D organ-like configuration. The authors conclude that cell culture models are a step towards pharmaceutical testing that does not use animal models, but further development is needed to effectively mimic the human body's reactions to various drugs.

      On first blush it looks like I've read portions of some of these chapters as blogposts on the authors' original websites. Should be interesting to see how those are linked/credited.

      Given the writing contained in the book it would be interesting to see Pressbooks and/or the Rebus Community allow support for having the lead of a project be credited as an "editor" on the front page rather than to default them as an "author".

    1. Watts, Charles J. The Cost of Production. Muskegon, MI: The Shaw-Walker Company, 1902. http://archive.org/details/costproduction01wattgoog.

      Short book on managing manufacturing costs. Not too much of an advertisement for Shaw-Walker manufactured goods (files, file management, filing cabinets, etc.). Only 64 pages are the primary content and the balance (about half) are advertisements.

      Given the publication date of 1902, this would have preceded the publication of System Magazine which began in 1903. This may have then been a prototype version of an early business magazine, but with a single author, no real editorial, and only one article.

      Presumably it may also have served the marketing interests of Shaw-Walker as a marketing piece as well.

      Tangentially, I'm a bit intrigued by the "Mr. Morse" mentioned on page 109 who is being touted as an in-house consultant for Shaw-Walker.... Is this the same Frank Morse who broke off to form the Browne-Morse Co.? (very likely)

      (Unknown translation from German into English. v1 TK)

      The overall title of the work (in English: Technique of Scientific Work) calls immediately to mind the tradition of note taking growing out of the scientific historical methods work of Bernheim and Langlois/Seignobos and even more specifically the description of note taking by Beatrice Webb (1926) who explicitly used the phrase "recipe for scientific note-taking".

      Alonso et al. characterized the Arabidopsis ein2 mutant, which is defective in ethylene response. This plant line is also used in many experiments done in the annotated paper.

    6. T. Fujikawa, T. Miyazaki, Effects of bulk density and soil type on the gas diffusion coefficient in repacked and undisturbed soils. Soil Sci. 170, 892–901 (2005).

      This paper investigates factors that affect gas diffusion in soil. It notes that air-filled porosity and bulk density are important factors.

    7. J. Correa, J. A. Postma, M. Watt, T. Wojciechowski, Soil compaction and the architectural plasticity of root systems. J. Exp. Bot. 70, 6019–6034 (2019).

      This paper reviews the effects of soil compaction on soil properties and root traits. It notes that in compacted soil, main effects on roots include decreased root length and increased root diameter.

    1. Only then do I start writing. Compared with the labour of making, sorting and arranging notes, this is a relatively speedy business. But it is followed by a much more time-consuming task, that of travelling round the libraries to check the references in my footnotes, only too many of which, thanks to poor handwriting, carelessness and an innate tendency to ‘improve’ what I have read, turn out to be either slightly wrong or taken out of context.That one hit a little close to home. lol.

      We should also acknowledge that when revisiting some of our references again later, we're doing so with a dramatically increased knowledge and context of a particular problem which we may not have had when we first read a piece or took the notes.

      Not many here are writing or talking about these small sorts of insights into learning and writing or generating new work. Perhaps we should do more to acknowledge this hermeneutic cycle in our work?

    1. Sonia Sotomayor asked herself what new thing did she learn at the end of every day. If she couldn't think of something then she remedied the issue by reading something. (Meltzer2018)

      While it's not known if she wrote notes about what she learned, doing so may have allowed her to accumulate a heck of a zettelkasten practice. Many people mistakenly think that they need to be creating dozens of perfect permanent notes for their zettelkasten every day, but in reality, most historical practitioners only made one or two each day. It's the accumulation and links between them that turn them into a more valuable collection over time.

      An overview of sources and repositories for fragments from the Cairo Geniza with useful bibliographies for the start of Geniza studies. Of particular interest to me here is the general work of Shelomo Dov Goitein and his 27,000+ card zettelkasten containing his research work on it. There's some great basic description of his collection in general as well as some small specifics on what it entails and some reasonable guide as to how to search it and digital versions at the Princeton Geniza Lab.
