Tab 1

Tracing Personalized Health Curves during Infections

It is difficult to describe host–microbe interactions in a manner that deals well with both pathogens and mutualists. Perhaps a way can be found using an ecological definition of tolerance, where tolerance is defined as the dose response curve of health versus parasite load. To plot tolerance, individual infections are summarized by reporting the maximum parasite load and the minimum health for a population of infected individuals and the slope of the resulting curve defines the tolerance of the population.

The Nuclear Receptor HIZR-1 Uses Zinc as a Ligand to Mediate Homeostasis in Response to High Zinc

Zinc is an essential nutrient for all life, including plants, animals and microbes, because zinc is involved in many different cellular events. Zn2+ binds tightly to many proteins and thereby contributes to their tertiary structure or catalytic activity [1], and Zn2+ has been proposed to function as a second messenger signaling molecule during synaptic transmission, development, and immune responses. Zinc homeostasis is vital for human health.
