  • Kulik, Heather J.; Steeves, Adam H.; Field, Robert W. (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2009-08)
    Based on high-level ab initio calculations, we predict the existence of a strong 4Σ+–4Σ+ [superscript 4 sigma superscript + - superscript 4 sigma superscript +] optical transition (dav=1.6 D) [(d subscript av = 1.6 D)] ...
  • Guttman, Mitchell; Garber, Manuel; Levin, Joshua Z.; Donaghey, Julie; Robinson, James; Adiconis, Xian; Fan, Lin; Koziol, Magdalena J.; Gnirke, Andreas; Nusbaum, Chad; Rinn, John L.; Lander, Eric S.; Regev, Aviv (Nature Publishing Group, 2010-07)
    RNA-Seq provides an unbiased way to study a transcriptome, including both coding and noncoding genes. To date, most RNA-Seq studies have critically depended on existing annotations, and thus focused on expression levels ...
  • Datta, Soumendu; Saha-Dasgupta, Tanusri; Kabir, Mohammad Mukul (American Physical Society, 2011-07)
    Using first-principles density-functional-theory–based calculations, we analyze the structural stability of small clusters of 3d late transition metals. We consider the relative stability of the two structures: layer-like ...
  • Mueller, Timothy K.; Ceder, Gerbrand (American Physical Society, 2010-11)
    We present a low-temperature structural model for lithium imide (Li[subscript 2]NH) that is consistent with experimental studies. Using the cluster expansion formalism and density-functional theory, we have identified a ...
  • Hurwitz, Michael Eliezer; Vanderzalm, Pamela J.; Bloom, Laird; Goldman, Julia; Garriga, Gian; Horvitz, H. Robert (Public Library of Science, 2009-04)
    The engulfment of apoptotic cells is required for normal metazoan development and tissue remodeling. In Caenorhabditis elegans, two parallel and partially redundant conserved pathways act in cell-corpse engulfment. One ...
  • Stevens, Robin Jean; Akbergenova, Yulia; Jorquera, Ramon A.; Littleton, J. Troy (Society for Neuroscience, 2012-12)
    Sustained neuronal communication relies on the coordinated activity of multiple proteins that regulate synaptic vesicle biogenesis and cycling within the presynaptic terminal. Synaptogyrin and synaptophysin are conserved ...
  • Gruber, Jonathan; Ananat, Elizabeth Oltmans; Staiger, Douglas; Levine, Phillip B. (MIT Press, 2009-01)
    Abortion legalization in the early 1970s led to dramatic changes in fertility. Some research has suggested that it altered cohort outcomes, but this literature has been limited and controversial. In this paper, we provide ...
  • Stangenberg, Lars; Ellson, Chris; Cortez-Retamozo, Virna; Ortiz-Lopez, Adriana; Yuan, Hushan; Blois, Joseph; Smith, Ralph A.; Yaffe, Michael B.; Weissleder, Ralph; Benoist, Christophe; Mathis, Diane; Josephson, Lee; Mahmood, Umar (Wiley Blackwell, 2009-07)
    Objective: To test a novel self-activating viridin (SAV) prodrug that slowly releases wortmannin, a potent phosphoinositide 3-kinase inhibitor, in a model of antibody-mediated inflammatory arthritis. Methods: The SAV ...
  • Kurs, Andre B.; Joannopoulos, John D.; Soljacic, Marin; Johnson, Steven G. (Optical Society of America, 2011-06)
    We present numerical experiments showing how coupled-mode theory can be systematically applied to join very dissimilar photonic crystal waveguides with 100% transmission. Our approach relies on appropriately tuning the ...
  • Nahmod, Andrea R.; Rey-Bellet, Luc; Sheffield, Scott Roger; Staffilani, Gigliola (International Press, 2011-01)
    We prove absolute continuity of Gaussian measures associated to complex Brownian bridges under certain gauge transformations. As an application we prove that the invariant measure for the periodic derivative nonlinear ...
  • Rayo, Agustin (Oxford University Press, 2012-12)
    Years ago, when I was young and reckless, I believed that there was such a thing as an allinclusive domain.1 Now I have come to see the error of my ways. The source of my mistake was a view that might be labeled ...
  • Naor, Assaf; Sheffield, Scott Roger (Springer-Verlag, 2011-11)
    We prove that every Lipschitz function from a subset of a locally compact length space to a metric tree has a unique absolutely minimal Lipschitz extension (AMLE). We relate these extensions to a stochastic game called ...
  • Reich, Stephanie; Panknin, Robert; Narula, Rohit (American Physical Society, 2010-07)
    Using sample substitution [Grimsditch et al., J. Raman Spectrosc. 10, 77 (1981)] we deconvolve the highly wavelength-dependent response of the spectrometer from the Raman spectra of graphene suspended on an SiO[subscript ...
  • Wallace, Gregory Marriner; Parker, Ronald R.; Bonoli, Paul T.; Hubbard, Amanda E.; Hughes, Jerry W.; LaBombard, Brian; Meneghini, Orso-Maria Corneli; Schmidt, Andrea Elizabeth; Shiraiwa, Shunichi; Whyte, Dennis G.; Wright, John C.; Wukitch, Stephen James; Smirnov, A. P.; Wilson, J. R. (American Institute of Physics, 2010-08)
    The goal of the Lower Hybrid Current Drive (LHCD) system on the Alcator C-Mod tokamak [ Hutchinson et al., Phys. Plasmas 1, 1511 (1994) ] is to investigate current profile control under plasma conditions relevant to future ...
  • Kuhn, Fabian; Lynch, Nancy Ann; Newport, Calvin Charles (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009-09)
    A diversity of possible communication assumptions complicates the study of algorithms and lower bounds for radio networks. We address this problem by defining an Abstract MAC Layer. This service provides reliable local ...
  • Burge, Christopher B.; Wang, Eric T.; Ramsköld, Daniel; Sandberg, Rickard (Public Library of Science, 2009-12)
    The parts of the genome transcribed by a cell or tissue reflect the biological processes and functions it carries out. We characterized the features of mammalian tissue transcriptomes at the gene level through analysis of ...
  • Ferrari, Raffaele; Lund, D. C.; Adkins, J. F. (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2011-03)
    The ocean's role in regulating atmospheric carbon dioxide on glacial-interglacial timescales remains an unresolved issue in paleoclimatology. Reduced mixing between deep water masses may have aided oceanic storage of ...
  • Mohr, Justin T.; Speers, Anna E.; Wan, Chu; Spicer, Timothy P.; Fernandez-Vega, Virneliz; Chase, Peter; Hodder, Peter S.; Schürer, Stephan C.; Nomura, Daniel K.; Rosen, Hugh; Cravatt, Benjamin F.; Bachovchin, Daniel A.; Berlin, Jacob M.; Fu, Gregory C. (National Academy of Sciences, 2011-03)
    National Institutes of Health (NIH)-sponsored screening centers provide academic researchers with a special opportunity to pursue small-molecule probes for protein targets that are outside the current interest of, or beyond ...
  • Mascaro, Mark D.; Ross, Caroline A. (American Physical Society, 2010-12)
    he response of 360° [360 degrees]domain walls in narrow magnetic stripes to applied dc and ac currents, investigated by micromagnetic simulation, differs qualitatively from the response of 180° [180 degrees] domain walls. ...
