  • Smith, Matthew William; Seager, Sara; Pong, Christopher Masaru; Villasenor, Jesus Noel Samonte; Ricker, George R.; Miller, David W.; Knapp, Mary E.; Farmer, Grant Trapnell; Jensen-Clem, Rebecca M. (SPIE, 2010-07)
    Nanosatellites, i.e. spacecraft that weigh between 1 and 10 kg, are drawing increasing interest as platforms for conducting on-orbit science. This trend is primarily driven by the ability to piggyback nanosatellites on the ...
  • Saenz-Vash, Veronica; Yua, Miao; Romer, Katherine A.; Nieland, Thomas J.; Xu, Shangzhe; Penman, Marsha L.; Yesilaltay, Ayce; Carr, Steven A.; Krieger, Monty (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), 2011-07)
    The HDL receptor, scavenger receptor, class B, type I (SR-BI), is a homooligomeric cell surface glycoprotein that controls HDL structure and metabolism by mediating the cellular selective uptake of lipids, mainly cholesteryl ...
  • Herr, Hugh M. (BioMed Central Ltd., 2009-06)
    For over a century, technologists and scientists have actively sought the development of exoskeletons and orthoses designed to augment human economy, strength, and endurance. While there are still many challenges associated ...

  • Graham, Peter W.; Harnik, Roni; Rajendran, Surjeet; Saraswat, Prashant (American Physical Society, 2010-09)
    We propose a novel mechanism for dark matter to explain the observed annual modulation signal at DAMA/LIBRA which avoids existing constraints from every other dark matter direct detection experiment including CRESST, CDMS, ...
  • Barros, Kipton; Chern, Gia-Wei; Batista, C. D.; Venderbos, Jorn W. F. (American Physical Society, 2014-12)
    We consider the Kondo-lattice model on the kagome lattice and study its weak-coupling instabilities at band filling fractions for which the Fermi surface has singularities. These singularities include Dirac points, quadratic ...
  • Serbyn, Maksym; Senthil, Todadri; Lee, Patrick Lee (American Physical Society, 2011-11)
    Motivated by recent experiments on the material Ba₃NiSb₂O₉, we consider a spin-one quantum antiferromagnet on a triangular lattice with the Heisenberg bilinear and biquadratic exchange interactions and a single-ion anisotropy. ...
  • Harris, Daniel Martin; Molacek, Jan; Bush, John W. M.; Wind-Willassen, Oistein (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2013-08)
    We present the results of an integrated experimental and theoretical investigation of droplets bouncing on a vibrating fluid bath. A comprehensive series of experiments provides the most detailed characterisation to date ...
  • Kearney, John; Pierce, Aaron; Thaler, Jesse (Springer-Verlag, 2013-10)
    Little Higgs models often give rise to top partners beyond the minimal ones necessary for the cancellation of quadratic divergences. We review how this occurs and discuss the phenomenology of these exotic states. We emphasize ...
  • Agarwal, Vikram; Guo, Huili; Guo, Junjie U.; Bartel, David (BioMed Central Ltd, 2014-07)
    Background: The recent reports of two circular RNAs (circRNAs) with strong potential to act as microRNA (miRNA) sponges suggest that circRNAs might play important roles in regulating gene expression. However, the global ...
  • Sjouwerman, Loránt O.; Pihlström, Ylva M.; Fish, Vincent L. (IOP Publishing, 2010-01)
    We report on the interferometric detection of 36.2 GHz Class I methanol emission with the new 27-40 GHz Ka-band receivers available on the Expanded Very Large Array (EVLA). The brightness temperatures of the interferometric ...
  • Sjouwerman, L. O.; Fish, Vincent L.; Pihlstrom, Y. M. (IOP Publishing, 2011-08)
    We report on the detection of 44 GHz Class I methanol (CH[subscript 3]OH) maser emission in the Sagittarius A (Sgr A) complex with the Expanded Very Large Array (EVLA). These EVLA observations show that the Sgr A complex ...
  • Larkin, Angelyn; Imperiali, Barbara (American Chemical Society, 2011-04)
    Asparagine-linked glycosylation involves the sequential assembly of an oligosaccharide onto a polyisoprenyl donor, followed by the en bloc transfer of the glycan to particular asparagine residues within acceptor proteins. ...
  • Fendt, Sarah-Maria; Stephanopoulos, Gregory; Keibler, Mark Andrew (Wiley Blackwell, 2012-10)
    The metabolic engineer's toolbox, comprising stable isotope tracers, flux estimation and analysis, pathway identification, and pathway kinetics and regulation, among other techniques, has long been used to elucidate and ...
  • Shin, Chanseok; Nam, Jin-Wu; Farh, Kyle Kai-How; Chiang, H. Rosaria; Shkumatava, Alena; Bartel, David (Elsevier, 2010-06)
    Most metazoan microRNA (miRNA) target sites have perfect pairing to the seed region, located near the miRNA 5′ end. Although pairing to the 3′ region sometimes supplements seed matches or compensates for mismatches, pairing ...
  • Sarell, Claire J.; Woods, Lucy A.; Su, Yongchao; Debelouchina, Galia Tzvetanova; Ashcroft, Alison E; Griffin, Robert Guy; Stockley, Peter G.; Radford, Sheena E. (American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB), 2013-01)
    Amyloid fibrils can be generated from proteins with diverse sequences and folds. Although amyloid fibrils assembled in vitro commonly involve a single protein precursor, fibrils formed in vivo can contain more than one ...
  • Buzard, James (Duke University Press, 2009-01)
    The thesis of my 2005 book Disorienting Fiction: The Autoethnographic Work of Nineteenth-Century British Novels is gestured at by the three words of this essay's main title: nineteenth-century Britain's imperial expansion ...
  • Chou, Song; Chu, Pat; Hwang, William; Lodish, Harvey F. (Elsevier B.V., 2010-10)
    A recent Science paper reported a purine derivative that expands human cord blood hematopoietic stem cells in culture ( Boitano et al., 2010) by antagonizing the aryl hydrocarbon receptor. Major problems need to be overcome ...
  • Kong, Jian; Kaptchuk, Ted J.; Polich, Ginger; Kirsch, Irving; Vangel, Mark G.; Zyloney, Carolyn; Rosen, Bruce R.; Gollub, Randy Lyanne (Elsevier, 2008-12)
    Recent advances in placebo research have demonstrated the mind's power to alter physiology. In this study, we combined an expectancy manipulation model with both verum and sham acupuncture treatments to address: 1) how and ...
  • Byrne, Alex (Wiley-Blackwell Pubishers, 2009-07)
    The ‘content view’, in slogan form, is ‘Perceptual experiences have representational content’. I explain why the content view should be reformulated to remove any reference to ‘experiences’. I then argue, against Bill ...
