  • Froelich, Clifford A.; Kang, Sukhyun; Epling, Leslie B.; Bell, Stephen P.; Enemark, Eric J. (eLife Sciences Publications, Ltd., 2014-04)
    The ring-shaped MCM helicase is essential to all phases of DNA replication. The complex loads at replication origins as an inactive double-hexamer encircling duplex DNA. Helicase activation converts this species to two ...
  • Schnall-Levin, Michael; Berger, Bonnie; Zhao, Yong; Perrimon, Norbert (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2010-08)
    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of short noncoding RNAs that regulate protein-coding genes posttranscriptionally. In animals, most known miRNA targeting occurs within the 3′UTR of mRNAs, but the extent of biologically ...
  • Hoersch, Sebastian; Mansisidor, Andres R.; Cecere, Germano; Jensen, Morten B.; Kawli, Trupti; Kennedy, Lisa M.; Chavez, Violeta; Tan, Man-Wah; Lieb, Jason D.; Grishok, Alla (Public Library of Science, 2011-09)
    Insulin signaling has a profound effect on longevity and the oxidative stress resistance of animals. Inhibition of insulin signaling results in the activation of DAF-16/FOXO and SKN-1/Nrf transcription factors and increased ...
  • Chirn, Gung-wei; Rahman, Reazur; Sytnikova, Yuliya A.; Matts, Jessica A.; Zeng, Mei; Gerlach, Daniel; Yu, Michael; Berger, Bonnie; Naramura, Mayumi; Kile, Benjamin T.; Lau, Nelson C. (Public Library of Science, 2015-11)
    The Piwi pathway is deeply conserved amongst animals because one of its essential functions is to repress transposons. However, many Piwi-interacting RNAs (piRNAs) do not base-pair to transposons and remain mysterious in ...
  • Le, Minh T. N.; Shyh-Chang, Ng; Khaw, Swea Ling; Chin, Lingzi; Teh, Cathleen; Tay, Junliang; O'Day, Elizabeth M.; Korzh, Vladimir; Yang, Henry; Lal, Ashish; Lieberman, Judy; Lim, Bing; Lodish, Harvey F. (Public Library of Science, 2011-09)
    MicroRNAs regulate networks of genes to orchestrate cellular functions. MiR-125b, the vertebrate homologue of the Caenorhabditis elegans microRNA lin-4, has been implicated in the regulation of neural and hematopoietic ...
  • Ailion, Michael; Paquin, Nicolas Robert; Murata, Yasunobu; Froehlich, Allan C; Omura, Daniel T; Pender, Corinne Lenore; Constantine-Paton, Martha; Horvitz, Howard Robert (Elsevier, 2016-03)
    The modification of behavior in response to experience is crucial for animals to adapt to environmental changes. Although factors such as neuropeptides and hormones are known to function in the switch between alternative ...
  • Hauser, John R.; Hauser, John R (Elsevier, 2014-03)
    Consumers often choose products by first forming a consideration set and then choosing from among considered products. When there are many products to screen (or many features to evaluate), it is rational for consumers to ...
  • Fornasier, Massimo; Huetter, Jan-Christian Klaus (Springer US, 2015-10)
    This paper is concerned with the study of the consistency of a variational method for probability measure quantization, deterministically realized by means of a minimizing principle, balancing power repulsion and attraction ...
  • Choi, Myung Jin; Tan, Vincent Yan Fu; Anandkumar, Animashree; Willsky, Alan S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-09)
    We study the problem of learning a latent tree graphical model where samples are available only from a subset of variables. We propose two consistent and computationally efficient algorithms for learning minimal latent ...
  • Vasudevan, Ramanarayan; Gonzalez, Humberto; Bajcsy, Ruzena; Sastry, S. Shankar; Vasudevan, Ram (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2013-12)
    Switched systems, or systems whose control parameters include a continuous-valued input and a discrete-valued input which corresponds to the mode of the system that is active at a particular instance in time, have shown ...
  • Vasudevan, Ram; Gonzalez, Humberto; Bajcsy, Ruzena; Sastry, S. Shankar (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2013-01)
    In the first part of this two-paper series, we presented a conceptual algorithm for the optimal control of constrained switched systems and proved that this algorithm generates a sequence of points that converge to a ...
  • Walter, Matthew R.; Bahr, Alexander; Leonard, John Joseph (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-07)
    In cooperative navigation, teams of mobile robots obtain range and/or angle measurements to each other and dead-reckoning information to help each other navigate more accurately. One typical approach is moving baseline ...
  • Hohm, Olaf; Samtleben, Henning (Springer-Verlag, 2015-01)
    We present the generalized Scherk-Schwarz reduction ansatz for the full supersymmetric exceptional field theory in terms of group valued twist matrices subject to consistency equations. With this ansatz the field equations ...
  • Baguet, Arnaud; Hohm, Olaf; Samtleben, Henning (American Physical Society, 2015-09)
    We use exceptional field theory as a tool to work out the full nonlinear reduction ansatz for the AdS[subscript 5] × S[superscript 5] compactification of IIB supergravity and its noncompact counterparts in which the sphere ...
  • Huang, Guoquan; Kaess, Michael; Leonard, John J (Elsevier, 2014-08)
    In this paper, we study the problem of multi-robot cooperative target tracking, where a team of mobile robots cooperatively localize themselves and track (multiple) targets using their onboard sensor measurements as well ...
  • Reed, Charlotte M.; Desloge, Joseph G.; Swaminathan, Jayaganesh; Braida, Louis D.; Leger, Agnes C. (Acoustical Society of America (ASA), 2015-07)
    Consonant-identification ability was examined in normal-hearing (NH) and hearing-impaired (HI) listeners in the presence of steady-state and 10-Hz square-wave interrupted speech-shaped noise. The Hilbert transform was used ...
  • Swaminathan, Jayaganesh; Reed, Charlotte M.; Desloge, Joseph G.; Braida, Louis D.; Delhorne, Lorraine A. (Acoustical Society of America (ASA), 2014-04)
    The contribution of recovered envelopes (RENVs) to the utilization of temporal-fine structure (TFS) speech cues was examined in normal-hearing listeners. Consonant identification experiments used speech stimuli processed ...
  • Szabo, Peter; McKinley, Gareth H.; Clasen, Christian (Elsevier, 2011-11)
    We revisit the rapid stretching of a liquid filament under the action of a constant imposed tensile force, a problem which was first considered by Matta and Tytus [J. Non-Newton. Fluid Mech. 35 (1990) 215–229]. A liquid ...
  • Slavov, Nikolai; Budnik, Bogdan A.; Schwab, David; Airoldi, Edoardo M.; van Oudenaarden, Alexander (Elsevier, 2014-04)
    Fermenting glucose in the presence of enough oxygen to support respiration, known as aerobic glycolysis, is believed to maximize growth rate. We observed increasing aerobic glycolysis during exponential growth, suggesting ...
  • Steiner, James F.; McClintock, Jeffrey E.; Gou, Lijun; Yamada, Shin'ya; Narayan, Ramesh; Remillard, Ronald Alan (IOP Publishing, 2010-07)
    The black hole binary system LMC X-3 has been observed by virtually every X-ray mission since the inception of X-ray astronomy. Among the persistent sources, LMC X-3 is uniquely both habitually soft and highly variable. ...
