  • Nguyen, Phu Tran; Weir, Sarah; Guo, Philip J.; Miller, Robert C.; Gajos, Krzysztof Z.; Kim, Ju Ho (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014-04)
    Millions of learners today use how-to videos to master new skills in a variety of domains. But browsing such videos is often tedious and inefficient because video player interfaces are not optimized for the unique step-by-step ...
  • Overeem, A.; Leijnse, H.; Steeneveld, G. J.; Uijlenhoet, R.; Horn, Berthold Klaus Paul; Robinson, J. C. R. (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2013-08)
    Accurate air temperature observations in urban areas are important for meteorology and energy demand planning. They are indispensable to study the urban heat island effect and the adverse effects of high temperatures on ...
  • Itzkowitz Shifrinson, Joshua; Priebe, Miranda L. (MIT Press, 2011-07)
    The United States and its Persian Gulf allies have been increasingly concerned with the growing size and complexity of Iran's ballistic missile programs. At a time when the United States and its allies remain locked in a ...
  • James, Peter Benjamin; Zuber, Maria; Phillips, Roger J. (American Geophysical Union, 2013-04)
    The topography of a terrestrial planet can be supported by several mechanisms: (1) crustal thickness variations, (2) density variations in the crust and mantle, (3) dynamic support, and (4) lithospheric stresses. Each of ...
  • Barnes, Alexander B.; Mak-Jurkauskas, Melody L.; Matsuki, Yoh; Bajaj, Vikram S.; van der Wel, Patrick C.A.; Sirigiri, Jagadishwar R.; Temkin, Richard J.; Lugtenburg, Johan; Herzfeld, Judith; DeRocher, Ronald C.; Bryant, Jeffrey A.; Griffin, Robert Guy (Elsevier, 2009-03)
    We describe a cryogenic sample exchange system that dramatically improves the efficiency of magic angle spinning (MAS) dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) experiments by reducing the time required to change samples and by ...
  • Popa, Raluca Ada; Redfield, Catherine M.; Zeldovich, Nickolai; Balakrishnan, Hari (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2011-10)
    Online applications are vulnerable to theft of sensitive information because adversaries can exploit software bugs to gain access to private data, and because curious or malicious administrators may capture and leak data. ...
  • Beineke, Jennifer; Brubaker, Benjamin Brock; Frechette, Sharon (Birkhauser Boston, 2012-07)
    This paper presents a de nition for a family of Weyl group multiple Dirichlet series (henceforth \MDS") of Cartan type C using a combinatorial model for crystal bases due to Berenstein-Zelevinsky [2] and Littelmann [12]. ...
  • Gast, Alice P.; Horton, Margaret R.; Manley, Suliana; Arevalo, Silvana R.; Lobkovsky, Alexander E. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2007-01)
    Cellular membranes can take on a variety of shapes to assist biological processes including endocytosis. Membrane-associated protein domains provide a possible mechanism for determining membrane curvature. We study the ...
  • Partridge, James R.; Schwartz, Thomas (Elsevier, 2009-06)
    The nuclear pore complex (NPC) resides in circular openings within the nuclear envelope and serves as the sole conduit to facilitate nucleocytoplasmic transport in eukaryotes. The asymmetric distribution of the small G ...
  • Kung, Yan; Doukov, Tzanko I.; Seravalli, Javier; Ragsdale, Stephen W.; Drennan, Catherine L. (American Chemical Society, 2009-07)
    Nickel-containing carbon monoxide dehydrogenases (CODHs) reversibly catalyze the oxidation of carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide and are of vital importance in the global carbon cycle. The unusual catalytic CODH C-cluster ...
  • Rajni Swamy, V.; Gunasekaran, P.; Krishnakumar, R. V.; Srinivasan, N.; Mueller, Peter (International Union of Crystallography (IUCr), 2014-08)
    The title compound, C[subscript 26]H[subscript 18]F[subscript 3]N[subscript 3]O[subscript 2]S, a 2-meth­oxy-substituted derivative, is closely related to its 4-methyl- and 4-chloro-substituted analogues and yet displays ...
  • Rich, Alexander; de Rosa, Matteo; de Sanctis, Daniele; Rosario, Ana Lucia; Archer, Margarida; Athanasiadis, Alekos; Carrondo, Maria Armenia (National Academy of Sciences, 2010-05)
    The double helix of DNA, when composed of dinucleotide purine-pyrimidine repeats, can adopt a left-handed helical structure called Z-DNA. For reasons not entirely understood, such dinucleotide repeats in genomic sequences ...
  • Deshpande, Chandrika N.; Harrop, Stephen J.; Boucher, Yan; Hassan, Karl A.; Di Leo, Rosa; Xu, Xiaohui; Cui, Hong; Savchenko, Alexei; Chang, Changsoo; Labbate, Maurizio; Paulsen, Ian T.; Stokes, H. W.; Curmi, Paul M. G.; Mabbutt, Bridget C. (Public Library of Science, 2011-03)
    Background The direct isolation of integron gene cassettes from cultivated and environmental microbial sources allows an assessment of the impact of the integron/gene cassette system on the emergence of new phenotypes, ...
  • Glynn, Steven E.; Martin, Andreas; Nager, Andrew Ross; Baker, Tania; Sauer, Robert T. (Elsevier, 2009-11)
    ClpX is a AAA+ machine that uses the energy of ATP binding and hydrolysis to unfold native proteins and translocate unfolded polypeptides into the ClpP peptidase. The crystal structures presented here reveal striking ...
  • Backer, Chelsea B.; Gutzman, Jennifer H.; Pearson, Chad G.; Cheeseman, Iain McPherson (American Society for Cell Biology, 2012-04)
    The diverse populations of microtubule polymers in cells are functionally distinguished by different posttranslational modifications, including polyglutamylation. Polyglutamylation is enriched on subsets of microtubules ...
  • Li, Yang; Wilson, Justin J.; Do, Loi H.; Apfel, Ulf-Peter; Lippard, Stephen J. (Royal Society of Chemistry, The, 2012-06)
    A triptycene-based bis(benzoxazole) diacid ligand H[subscript 2]L2[superscript Ph4] bearing sterically encumbering groups was synthesized. Treatment of H[subscript 2]L2[superscript Ph4] with Fe(OTf)[subscript 3] afforded ...
  • Beigi, Salman; Shor, Peter W. (Rinton Press, 2010-01)
    Fault-tolerant quantum computation is a basic problem in quantum computation, andteleportation is one of the main techniques in this theory. Using teleportation on stabi-lizer codes, the most well-known quantum codes, Pauli ...
