  • Consumption of Melopsittacus undulatus (Shaw, 1805) (Psittaciformes,
           Psittacidae) by Sapajus cay Illiger, 1815 (Primates, Cebidae) in Midwest
           region of Brazil

    • Abstract: Abstract The interaction between native and exotic species can cause changes both in the food-chain and in aspects of competition for trophic resources, such as predation. Predatory events are common in nature, but difficult and usually recorded opportunistically. Here we present the first report of trophic interaction involving a species of exotic bird (Melopsittacus undulatus) and a species of native primate (Sapajus cay). Capuchin monkeys have already been recorded feeding on a wide variety of vertebrates, including frogs, lizards, birds, mammals, and even other species of primates. Although the record of the non-native M. undulatus in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul indicates a possible domestic escape, the record of predation may represent a beneficial trophic interaction for the ecosystem, preventing M. undulatus from becoming an invasive alien species. Studies are needed to assess what risks are posed by domestic species being preyed upon by native species.Resumen La interacción entre especies nativas y exóticas puede provocar cambios en la cadena trófica tanto en aspectos de competencia por recursos alimenticios, como en depredación. Los eventos depredadores son de naturaleza común, pero difíciles y oportunistas de registrar. Aquí presentamos el primer informe de interacción trófica que involucra una especie de ave exótica (Melopsittacus undulatus) y una especie de primate nativo (Sapajus cay). Ya se ha registrado que los monos capuchinos se alimentan de una amplia variedad de vertebrados, incluidas ranas, lagartos, aves, mamíferos e incluso otras especies de monos. Aunque el registro de M. undulatus en el estado de Mato Grosso do Sul indica una posible fuga doméstica, el registro de depredación puede representar una interacción trófica beneficiosa para el ecosistema, evitando que M. undulatus se convierta en una especie exótica invasora. Se necesitan estudios para evaluar qué riesgos plantean las especies domésticas que son depredadas por especies nativas.
  • Contribution to the knowledge of the crabs (Meiura: Decapoda) of the CEBUC
           Collection, with additional records in Colombia

    • Abstract: Resumen Las colecciones biológicas constituyen un registro de la historia natural de las diferentes regiones y brindan información relevante para diversas investigaciones científicas concernientes con sistemática, biogeografía, y biología de la conservación, entre otras. En las colecciones relacionadas con artrópodos de Colombia, los cangrejos (Decapoda: Anomura y Brachyura) están poco representados, a pesar de ser el segundo país con la mayor diversidad de cangrejos de agua dulce a nivel mundial y poseer numerosos representantes de especies marinas y semiterrestres, tanto del Atlántico como del Pacífico. La pequeña representatividad del grupo en colecciones biológicas puede deberse al número reducido de especialistas en el grupo y al número limitado de muestreos. El objetivo de este trabajo fue ampliar el conocimiento de los decápodos de Colombia mediante la revisión de los especímenes depositados en la colección CEBUC. Se encontraron 98 individuos distribuidos en 15 familias, 23 géneros y 22 especies. Los ejemplares revisados corresponden a la región Centro Occidental y costa atlántica de Colombia, en donde Caldas es el departamento mejor representado, con el 50 % de los registros. En este trabajo se registran ampliaciones altitudinales para la distribución de Hypolobocera bouvieri y Strengeriana fuhrmanni (Pseudothelphusidae). Además, se documentan ampliaciones en el rango de distribución para otras especies. Este trabajo constituye una fuente preliminar de información sobre la di‐ versidad de los cangrejos a nivel regional y enfatiza que la diversidad puede incrementarse substancialmente con la ampliación del número de investigaciones y la revisión de colecciones biológicas.Abstract Biological collections constitute a record of the natural history of different regions and provide relevant information for various scientific investigations related to systematics, biogeography, conservation biology, among others. In collections associated to arthropods in Colombia, crabs (Meiura) formed by the infraorders Anomura and Brachyura (Decapoda) are poorly represented, despite being the second country with the most diversity of freshwater crabs worldwide and having many representatives of marine and semi‐terrestrial species from the Atlantic and Pacific. The small representativeness of the group in the collections could be due to the small number of specialist researchers in the group and the small amount of samplings. The objective of this work was to expand the knowledge on decapods from Colombia through the review of the specimens deposited in the CEBUC collection. We found 98 individuals distributed in 15 families, 23 genera and 22 species. The material reviewed comes from the Central Western and Atlantic coastal region of Colombia, where Caldas is the best represented department, with 50% of the records. In this work altitudinal enlargements are registered for the distribution of Hypolobocera bouvieri and Strengeriana fuhrmanni (Pseu‐ dothelphusidae). In addition, expansions in the range of distribution are documented for other species. This work constitutes a preliminary source of information on the diversity of crabs (Meiura) at the regional level and reflects that diversity can increase substantially with the expansion of the number of investigations and the review of biological collections.
  • New permeability pathways in Plasmodium falciparum: considerations as a
           pharmacological target and advances in potential inhibitors

    • Abstract: Resumen Con base en la persistencia de los casos de malaria, dados por múltiples razones, entre las cuales se encuentra la resistencia de Plasmodium falciparum a los antimálaricos establecidos para su tratamiento, surge la necesidad de encontrar nuevos compuestos antimaláricos frente a otros blancos terapéuticos. En vista de ello, las Nuevas Rutas de Permeabilidad (NPP) han sido un objetivo promisorio y a partir de su descubrimiento, se han realizado diversos estudios enfocados en comprender su mecanismo y los componentes utilizados para el transporte de solutos y otras moléculas a través de la membrana del eritrocito. El objetivo de esta revisión de tema es presentar una recopilación de los estudios más significativos realizados en torno a las NPP. Para ello, se revisó la literatura para conocer el estado del desarrollo de las investigaciones referentes al tema, consultando bases de datos electrónicas y combinando los descriptores o palabras clave: (NPP AND malaria, AND Plasmodium falciparum AND inhibitors), además, se realizaron búsquedas secundarias en las listas de referencias bibliográficas de los artículos identificados. Luego de revisar los artículos de la literatura publicados entre los años 1980 y 2019, se concluye que muchos estudios han sido dedicados a la búsqueda de inhibidores de esta vía con fines terapéuticos y hay gran cantidad de moléculas candidatas como el híbrido MA-DFO y las diaminidas que han mostrado actividad en modelos de malaria tanto in vitro como in vivo.Abstract In malaria, the persistent resistance to antimalarial drugs by Plasmodium falciparum constitute a problem to world public health. New Permeability Pathways (NPP) are a promissory therapeutic target, because the parasite uses them to modify the membrane of the erythrocyte and make it permeable to various nutrients needed for its growth. We present a theme review where a compilation of various studies related to NPP, its importance and its inhibitors was made.
  • Butterflies (Lepidoptera: Papilionoidea) from Tierradentro, San Andrés de
           Pisimbalá, Cauca, Colombia

    • Abstract: Resumen Este trabajo es el primer registro sobre la caracterización de la diversidad de lepidópteros (Papilionoidea) en el Parque Arqueológico de Tierradentro, vereda de San Andrés de Pisimbalá, Inzá, Cauca, Colombia, considerada como una región ecoturística y de importancia cultural para el país. Se establecieron recorridos a lo largo de tres coberturas vegetales identificadas como bosque secundario, cultivos de pancoger y potrero. Para la recolecta de mariposas se emplearon dos métodos de muestreo, el primero con red entomológica y el segundo mediante el uso de trampas tipo Van Someren Rydon. Se registró un total de 128 especies, distribuidas en 99 géneros y cinco familias (Nymphalidae, Hesperiidae, Pieridae, Riodinidae y Lycaenidae). Las coberturas de bosque y cultivos presentaron la mayor diversidad, probablemente por la heterogeneidad vegetal observada. Adicionalmente, se encontró que el bosque presentaba algunas especies indicadoras que se asocian con buenos estados de conservación.Abstract This work is the first report on the characterization of Lepidoptera diversity (Papilionoidea) in Tierradentro Archaeological Park, San Andrés de Pisimbalá, Inzá, Cauca, Colombia, considered an ecotourism region of cultural importance for the country. Routes were established along secondary forest, pancoger crops and pastures. To collect Lepidoptera, two sampling methods were used, the first using an entomological net and the second using van Someren Rydon traps. A total of 128 species distributed in 99 genera and five families (Nymphalidae, Hesperiidae, Pieridae, Riodinidae and Lycaenidae) were collected. Forest cover and pancoger crops were the most diverse, probably due to the plant heterogeneity observed. Additionally, it was found that the forest presented some indicator species that are associated with good conservation states.
  • A look at the C3 and C5 proteins in the Covid-19

    • Abstract: Abstract The emergency caused by the new SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes the Covid-19 disease, has triggered a global pandemic. One of the most characteristic factors of SARS-CoV-2 virus infection is the deregulated activation of the complement system, especially by proteins C3 and C5. These proteins trigger initiation reactions such as maintenance of inappropriate biological activities in addition to uncontrolled immune responses by immune cells, especially neutrophils. They generate various pathologies such as acute stroke, heart attack, coagulopathies, multiorgan failure, inflammation, immunothrombinosis, heart failure, acute kidney injury, acute injuries in the lung area, thrombotic microangiopathy, pneumonia, and dysfunctional immune responses. Because of the crucial role played by proteins C3 and C5 in the infection by the SARS-COV-2 virus, new complement system inhibition treatments have emerged as a possible first line of defense against the worst symptoms developed during Covid-19 disease. This article will review in a general way, the role of C3 and C5 proteins and the treatments aimed at the inhibition of these same proteins during SARS-CoV-2 infection.Resumen La emergencia causada por el nuevo virus SARS-CoV-2, causante de la enfermedad Covid-19, ha desencadenado una pandemia a nivel global. Uno de los factores más característicos de la infección por el virus SARS-CoV-2, es la activación desregulada del sistema del complemento, especialmente por parte las proteínas C3 y C5. Estas proteínas desencadenan reacciones de iniciación y de mantenimiento de actividades biológicas inadecuadas, además de respuestas inmunitarias descontroladas por parte de las células inmunes, en especial los neutrófilos. Generan diversas patologías como: accidente cerebrovascular agudo, ataque al corazón, coagulopatías, falla multiorgánica, inflamación, inmunotrombinosis, insuficiencia cardíaca, lesión renal aguda, lesiones agudas en el área pulmonar, microangiopatía trombótica, neumonía, y respuestas inmunes disfuncionales. Debido al rol crucial que presentan las proteínas C3 y C5 en la infección por el virus SARS-COV-2, nuevos tratamientos de inhibición del sistema del complemento han emergido como una posible primera línea de defensa contra los peores síntomas desarrollados durante la enfermedad Covid-19. En este artículo se revisará de manera general, el rol de las proteínas C3 y C5 y los tratamientos dirigidos a la inhibición de estas mismas proteínas durante la infección por SARS-CoV-2.
  • Notes on the Diet and Habitat of Antioquia Brush-finch Atlapetes

    • Abstract: Resumen Parte de los datos más relevantes y básicos para implementar medidas de conservación enfocadas en una especie, requieren de no más que un metódico registro de las observaciones. Presentamos los datos de dieta y estrategias de forrajeo de Atlapetes blancae, recopilados entre diciembre de 2018 y enero de 2020 en San Pedro de los Milagros, Santa Rosa de Osos y Llanos de Cuivá en Yarumal, Antioquia, Colombia. Presentamos también una descripción de su hábitat y comentarios sobre las estrategias posibles para implementar acciones de conservación. Esta información no solo aporta al conocimiento biológico de la especie, sino que también ofrece información crucial sobre la vegetación relacionada con A. blancae para que sea incluida en acciones de restauración ecológica, evitando así la pérdida del hábitat de esta ave endémica que se encuentra en la categoría máxima de amenaza a la extinción.Abstract Some of the most relevant and basic data for implementing species-focused conservation measures require nothing more than a methodical record of observations. We present data on the diet and feeding strategies of Atlapetes blancae collected between December 2018 and January 2020 in San Pedro de los Milagros, Santa Rosa de Osos, and Llanos de Cuivá in Yarumal, Antioquia, Colombia. We also present a description of their habitat and comments on possible strategies to implement conservation actions. This information not only contributes to the biological knowledge of the species, but also offers crucial information about the vegetation related to A. blancae so that it can be included in the ecological restoration actions and thus avoid the loss of the habitat of this endemic bird that is in the highest category of threat of extinction.
  • Evaluation of treatments for propagation of ceiba barrigona (Cavanillesia
           chicamochae), morphology and phenology the seed

    • Abstract: Resumen El bosque seco tropical (bs-T) es uno de los ecosistemas más amenazados del planeta, como consecuencia de la presión antrópica. En el enclave subxerofítico del cañón del Chicamocha habita Cavanillesia chicamochae, especie endémica y amenazada que presenta poca supervivencia de sus plántulas, afectando la regeneración de sus poblaciones. El presente estudio evaluó la germinación de C. chicamochae con frutos, semillas y estacas, utilizando tres sustratos diferentes. Se emplearon tres tratamientos, los cuales consistieron en diferentes sustratos: T1: arena de río; T2: tierra negra; T3: mezcla 3/4 tierra -1/4 cascarilla de arroz y se utilizaron frutos, semillas desnudas y estacas. Se implementó un diseño completamente aleatorio con tres sustratos incluyendo frutos y semillas y se realizaron cuatro réplicas. Las variables analizadas se sometieron a un ANOVA; cuando las diferencias fueron significativas (p<0,05), además se desarrolló un análisis de medias utilizando la prueba de rangos múltiples de Duncan. El porcentaje de germinación por semilla y fruto presentó diferencias significativas; el tratamiento de mayor eficiencia fue T1 (71%-semillas y 54%-frutos). Las semillas almacenadas en condiciones ambientales perdieron su viabilidad a partir de los cuatro meses. El mucílago presentó un adecuado valor bromatológico para la alimentación de rumiantes e importantes contenidos en metabolitos secundarios, con usos potenciales en el área farmacéutica, siendo un valor agregado para la especie. El estrés hídrico selecciona características de conservación del agua para garantizar la sobrevivencia de especies en el tiempo, una mejor comprensión de estas estrategias ayudará a predecir respuestas ante futuras sequías.Abstract The tropical dry forest (bs-T) is one of the most threatened ecosystems on the planet, because of anthropic pressure. The subxerophytic enclave of the Chicamocha canyon is inhabited by Cavanillesia chicamochae, an endemic and threatened species that has little survival of its seedlings, affecting the regeneration of its populations. In the present study, the germination of C. chicamochae was evaluated with fruits, seeds, and cuttings, using three different substrates. Three treatments were used, which consisted of different substrates: T1: river sand; T2: black earth; T3: mix 3/4 soil -1/4 rice husk and fruits, bare seeds and cuttings were used. A completely randomized design was implemented with three substrates including fruits and seeds and four replicas were performed. The variables analyzed were subjected to an ANOVA, when the differences were significant (p<0.05), in addition an analysis of means was developed using Duncan's multiple range test. The germination percentage per seed and fruit showed significant differences (p<0.05), the treatment with the highest efficiency was T1 (71%-seeds and 54%-fruits). Seeds stored under ambient conditions lost their viability after four months. The mucilage presented an adequate bromatological value for the feeding of ruminants and important contents in secondary metabolites, with potential uses in the pharmaceutical area being an added value for the species. Water stress selects water conservation characteristics to guarantee the survival of species over time, a better understanding of these strategies will help predict responses to future droughts.
