  • Cahillane, Craig; Betzwieser, Joe; Brown, Duncan A.; Goetz, Evan; Izumi, Kiwamu; Kandhasamy, Shivaraj; Karki, Sudarshan; Kissel, Jeff S.; Mendell, Greg; Savage, Richard L.; Tuyenbayev, Darkhan; Urban, Alex; Viets, Aaron; Wade, Madeline; Weinstein, Alan J.; Hall, Evan D. (American Physical Society, 2017-11)
    Calibration of the Advanced LIGO detectors is the quantification of the detectors’ response to gravitational waves. Gravitational waves incident on the detectors cause phase shifts in the interferometer laser light which ...
  • Bekeraitė, S.; Walcher, C. J.; Wisotzki, L.; Croton, D. J.; Falcón-Barroso, J.; Lyubenova, M.; Obreschkow, D.; Sánchez, S. F.; Spekkens, K.; Torrey, P.; Ven, G. van de; Zwaan, M. A.; Ascasibar, Y.; Bland-Hawthorn, J.; Delgado, R. González; Husemann, B.; Marino, R. A.; Ziegler, B.; Vogelsberger, Mark (American Astronomical Society, 2016-08)
    The velocity function (VF) is a fundamental observable statistic of the galaxy population that is similar to the luminosity function in importance, but much more difficult to measure. In this work we present the first ...
  • Gangopadhyay, Avijit; Rosenfeld, Leslie; Robinson, Allan R.; Calado, Leandro; Kim, Hyun Sook; Lermusiaux, Pierre; Leslie, Wayne G; Haley, Patrick (Elsevier, 2011-05)
    Over the past decade, the feature-oriented regional modeling methodology has been developed and applied in several ocean domains, including the western North Atlantic and tropical North Atlantic. This methodology is ...
  • D'Antonio, Carla M.; Corbin, Jeffrey D.; Abraham, Joel K. (Springer Netherlands, 2009-04)
    Early emergence of plant seedlings can offer strong competitive advantages over later-germinating neighbors through the preemption of limiting resources. This phenomenon may have contributed to the persistent dominance of ...
  • Zahim, Sara; Evano, Gwilherm; Jabin, Ivan; Wickramasinghe Weerakkodi Appuhamilage, Lasantha A; Schrock, Richard Royce; Mueller, Peter (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2016-02)
    A new calix[6]azacryptand ligand has been prepared in six steps starting from 1,3,5-trismethoxycalix[6]arene. An X-ray study shows that this ligand has a sterically protected tren-based binding site at the bottom of a ...
  • Morris, Robert Randall; Hernandez, Javier; Picard, Rosalind W. (Springer Berlin / Heidelberg, 2011-10)
    Nine call center employees wore a skin conductance sensor on the wrist for a week at work and reported stress levels of each call. Although everyone had the same job profile, we found large differences in how individuals ...
  • Atkin, David (American Economic Association, 2016-04)
    Anthropologists have documented substantial and persistent differences in food preferences across social groups. My paper asks whether such food cultures can constrain caloric intake? I first document that interstate ...
  • Cunha-Santos, Janete; Duarte-Neves, Joana; Carmona, Vitor; Pereira de Almeida, Luís; Cavadas, Cláudia; Guarente, Leonard Pershing (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-05)
    Machado–Joseph disease (MJD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by an abnormal expansion of the CAG triplet in the ATXN3 gene, translating into a polyglutamine tract within the ataxin-3 protein. The available ...

  • Guarente, Leonard Pershing (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2013-10)
    Calorie or dietary restriction (CR) has attracted attention because it is the oldest and most robust way to extend rodent life span. The idea that the nutrient sensors, termed sirtuins, might mediate effects of CR was ...
  • Mercken, Evi M.; Crosby, Seth D.; Lamming, Dudley W.; JeBailey, Lellean; Krzysik-Walker, Susan; Villareal, Dennis T.; Capri, Miriam; Franceschi, Claudio; Zhang, Yongqing; Becker, Kevin; Sabatini, David M.; de Cabo, Rafael; Fontana, Luigi (Wiley Blackwell, 2013-06)
    Caloric restriction (CR) and down-regulation of the insulin/IGF pathway are the most robust interventions known to increase longevity in lower organisms. However, little is known about the molecular adaptations induced by ...
  • Kotecki, Maciej; Zeiger, Adam S.; Van Vliet, Krystyn J.; Herman, Ira M. (Elsevier, 2010-08)
    Pericytes surround capillary endothelial cells and exert contractile forces modulating microvascular tone and endothelial growth. We previously described pericyte contractile phenotype to be Rho GTPase- and α-smooth muscle ...
  • Amengual, Matthew (Instituto de Desarrollo Económico y Social, 2011-07)
    Developing the capacity for states to enforce labor law is a key challenge to regulating decent work. Dominant accounts of state capacity, however, suggest that the principal components of state enforcement capacity are ...
  • Ando, Koji; Shah, Ankur K.; Sachdev, Vibhu; Kleinstiver, Benjamin P.; Taylor-Parker, Julian; Welch, Moira M.; Hu, Yiheng; Salgia, Ravi; Parvin, Jeffrey D.; Ozonoff, Al; Rameh, Lucia E.; Joung, J. Keith; Bharti, Ajit K.; White, Forest M (Impact Journals/National Center for Biotechnology Information (U.S.), 2017-03)
    Proteasomal degradation of topoisomerase I (topoI) is one of the most remarkable cellular phenomena observed in response to camptothecin (CPT). Importantly, the rate of topoI degradation is linked to CPT resistance. Formation ...
  • Lertpiriyapong, Kvin; Gamazon, Eric R.; Feng, Yan; Park, Danny S.; Pang, Jassia; Botka, Georgina; Graffam, Michelle E.; Ge, Zhongming; Fox, James G. (Public Library of Science, 2012-08)
    The recently identified type VI secretion system (T6SS) of proteobacteria has been shown to promote pathogenicity, competitive advantage over competing microorganisms, and adaptation to environmental perturbation. By ...

    We study online algorithms for the Canadian Traveller Problem (CTP) introduced by Papadimitriou and Yannakakis in 1991. In this problem, a traveller knows the entire road network in advance, and wishes to travel as quickly ...
  • Moen, Phyllis; Lee, Shi-Rong; Oakes, J. Michael; Fan, Wen; Bray, Jeremy; Almeida, David; Hammer, Leslie; Hurtado, David; Buxton, Orfeu; Kelly, Erin L. (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2016-12)

  • Fox, Daniel (Linguistic Society of America, 2014-04)
    Grice (1975) pointed out that the ignorance inferences normally drawn when disjunctive sentences are uttered are cancelled when it is presupposed that speakers are not going to provide all of the relevant information that ...
  • Sabatini, David M.; Cantor, Jason R. (American Association for Cancer Research, 2012-09)
    Cancer cells must rewire cellular metabolism to satisfy the demands of growth and proliferation. Although many of the metabolic alterations are largely similar to those in normal proliferating cells, they are aberrantly ...
