  • Sing, Charles E.; Alexander-Katz, Alfredo (Elsevier, 2010-05)
    The unfolding of von Willebrand Factor (vWF), one of the largest multimeric proteins in our body, has been shown to be a crucial step in the process of blood clotting. Here we show that elongational flows, which appear ...
  • Gurtan, Allan M.; JnBaptiste, Courtney K.; Bosson, Andrew; Milani, Pamela; Matthews, Bryan J.; Yap, Yoon S.; Sharp, Phillip A.; Fraenkel, Ernest; Gosline, Sara Jane Calafell; Dalin, Simona Sara; Gurtan, Allan M.; JnBaptiste, Courtney K.; Matthews, Bryan J.; Yap, Yoon S.; Sharp, Phillip A. (Elsevier, 2015-12)
    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) regulate diverse biological processes by repressing mRNAs, but their modest effects on direct targets, together with their participation in larger regulatory networks, make it challenging to delineate ...
  • Canepa, Pieremanuele; Jayaraman, Saivenkataraman; Cheng, Lei; Rajput, Nav Nidhi; Curtiss, Larry A.; Persson, Kristin A.; Ceder, Gerbrand; Richards, William Davidson; Gopalakrishnan, Sai Gautam (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-10)
    Non-aqueous Mg-ion batteries offer a promising way to overcome safety, costs, and energy density limitations of state-of-the-art Li-ion battery technology. We present a rigorous analysis of the magnesium aluminum chloride ...

  • Zeng, Qiandong; Holder, Jason W.; Mahan, Alison E.; Brigham, Christopher J.; Budde, Charles F.; Rha, ChoKyun; Sinskey, Anthony J. (American Society for Microbiology, 2010-08)
    Ralstonia eutropha H16 is capable of growth and polyhydroxyalkanoate production on plant oils and fatty acids. However, little is known about the triacylglycerol and fatty acid degradation pathways of this bacterium. We ...
  • Sinangil, Yildiz; Chandrakasan, Anantha P. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-11)
    Embedded energy monitoring of critical system components can be used to enable better power management by capturing run time system conditions such as temperature and application load. In this work, an energy sensing circuit ...
  • Farshchi, Shahin; Pesterev, Aleksey; Nuyujukian, Paul; Guenterberg, Eric; Mody, Istvan; Judy, Jack W. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-04)
    To create a wireless neural recording system that can benefit from the continuous advancements being made in embedded microcontroller and communications technologies, an embedded-system-based architecture for wireless ...
  • Losev, Ivan (Elsevier, 2009-08)
    Let G be a connected reductive algebraic group. We find a necessary and sufficient condition for a quasi-affine homogeneous space [G over H] to have an embedding into an irreducible G-module. For reductive H we also find ...
  • Demaine, Erik D.; Schulz, Andre (Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), 2011-01)
    We show how to realize a stacked 3D polytope (formed by repeatedly stacking a tetrahedron onto a triangular face) by a strictly convex embedding with its n vertices on an integer grid of size O(n4) x O(n4) x O(n18). ...
  • Domingues, Diana; Miosso, Cristiano J.; Rodrigues, Suélia F.; Silva Rocha Aguiar, Carla; Lucena, Tiago F.; Miranda, Mateus; Rocha, Adson F.; Raskar, Ramesh (Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2014-02)
    Our proposal in Bioart and Biomedical Engineering for a ective esthetics focuses on the expanded sensorium and investigates problems regarding enactive systems. These systems enhance the sensorial experiences and amplify ...
  • Koshimizu, Eriko; Imamura, Shintaro; Qi, Jie; Toure, Jamal; Valdez Jr., Delgado M.; Carr, Christopher E.; Hanai, Jun-ichi; Kishi, Shuji (Public Library of Science, 2010-03)
    Background: Mutations that disrupt the conversion of prelamin A to mature lamin A cause the rare genetic disorder Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome and a group of laminopathies. Our understanding of how A-type lamins ...
  • Mazzoni, Esteban O.; Mahony, Shaun; Iacovino, Michelina; Morrison, Carolyn A.; Mountoufaris, George; Closser, Michael; Whyte, Warren Anthony; Young, Richard A.; Kyba, Michael; Gifford, David K.; Wichterle, Hynek (Nature Publishing Group, 2011-11)
    The study of developmentally regulated transcription factors by chromatin immunoprecipitation and deep sequencing (ChIP-seq) faces two major obstacles: availability of ChIP-grade antibodies and access to sufficient number ...
  • Miyagawa, Shigeru; Berwick, Robert C. (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2013-02)
    We propose a novel account for the emergence of human language syntax. Like many evolutionary innovations, language arose from the adventitious combination of two pre-existing, simpler systems that had been evolved for ...
  • Rayle, Lisa; Zegras, P. Christopher (Taylor & Francis, 2012-09)
    Inter-organizational collaboration as a means for policy coordination has come to be seen as a solution to difficult and complex urban challenges. In Portugal, where metropolitan governance structures are highly fragmented, ...
  • Kirksey, S. Eben; Helmreich, Stefan (American Anthropological Association, 2010-11)
    Anthropologists have been committed, at least since Franz Boas, to investigating relationships between nature and culture. At the dawn of the 21st century, this enduring interest was inflected with some new twists. An ...
  • Shikano, Yutaka; Chisaki, Kota; Segawa, Etsuo; Konno, Norio (American Physical Society, 2010-06)
    Quantum walks are powerful tools not only for constructing the quantum speedup algorithms but also for describing specific models in physical processes. Furthermore, the discrete time quantum walk has been experimentally ...
  • Yankowitz, Matthew; Xue, Jiamin; Cormode, Daniel; Sanchez-Yamagishi, Javier; Watanabe, K.; Taniguchi, T.; Jarillo-Herrero, Pablo; Jacquod, Philippe; LeRoy, Brian J. (Nature Publishing Group, 2012-03)
    The Schrödinger equation dictates that the propagation of nearly free electrons through a weak periodic potential results in the opening of bandgaps near points of the reciprocal lattice known as Brillouin zone boundaries1. ...
  • Maine, Elicia; Thomas, V. J.; Bliemel, Martin; Murira, Armstrong; Utterback, James M. (Nature Publishing Group, 2014-01)
    The confluence of nanotechnology and biotechnology provides significant commercial opportunities. By identifying, classifying and tracking firms with capabilities in both biotechnology and nanotechnology over time, we ...
  • Wang, J.; Carvalho, Pedro M. S.; Kirtley, James L., Jr. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2012-01)
