  • Oelke, Alexander J.; Sun, Jianwei; Fu, Gregory C. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2012-02)
    To date, effective nickel-catalyzed enantioselective cross-couplings of alkyl electrophiles that bear oxygen leaving groups have been limited to reactions of allylic alcohol derivatives with Grignard reagents. In this ...
  • Lou, Sha; Fu, Gregory C. (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2010-04)
    Procedure: A. (5-Cyanopentyl)zinc(II) bromide (1). An oven-dried, 200-mL pear-shaped Schlenk flask equipped with a magnetic stirbar (egg shaped, 25.4 × 12.7 mm) and an argon line connected to the standard taper outer joint ...
  • Matsubara, Ryosuke; Gutierrez, Alicia C.; Jamison, Timothy F. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2011-11)
    Nickel-catalyzed intermolecular benzylation and heterobenzylation of unactivated alkenes to provide functionalized allylbenzene derivatives are described. A wide range of both the benzyl chloride and alkene coupling partners ...
  • Beaver, Matthew G.; Jamison, Timothy F. (American Chemical Society, 2011-06)
    A Ni-catalyzed reductive coupling of alkynes and epoxides using Ni(II) salts and simple alcohol reducing agents is described. Whereas previously reported conditions relied on Ni(cod)2 and Et3B, this system has several ...
  • Wogan, Gerald N.; Trudel, Laura J.; Thiantanawat, Apinya; Godoy, Luiz Claudio; Kim, Min Young; Lia, Chun-Qi (United States National Academy of Sciences, 2009-08)
    The transcription factor NF-E2-related nuclear factor 2 (Nrf2) regulates expression of genes that protect cells from oxidative damage. Here, we characterized nitric oxide (•NO)-induced Nrf2–Kelch-like ECH-associated protein ...
  • Ivy, Diane J.; Arnold, Tim; Harth, Christina M.; Muhle, Jens; Manning, Alistair J.; Salameh, Peter K.; Kim, Jooil; Steele, L. Paul; Petrenko, Vasilii V.; Severinghaus, Jeffrey P.; Baggenstos, Daniel; Weiss, Ray F. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2013-01)
    Nitrogen trifluoride (NF[subscript 3]) has potential to make a growing contribution to the Earth’s radiative budget; however, our understanding of its atmospheric burden and emission rates has been limited. Based on a ...
  • Stewart, Iain; Tackmann, Frank; Waalewijn, Wouter Jonathan (American Physical Society, 2010-08)
    Jet vetoes are essential in many analyses at the LHC and Tevatron. Typical signals have a specific number of hard jets or leptons, while backgrounds have additional jets. Vetoing undesired jets efficiently discriminates ...
  • Marano, Stefano; Gifford, Wesley Michael; Wymeersch, Henk; Win, Moe Z. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-09)
    Sensor networks can benefit greatly from location-awareness, since it allows information gathered by the sensors to be tied to their physical locations. Ultra-wide bandwidth (UWB) transmission is a promising technology for ...
  • Zhang, Wenxian; Cappellaro, Paola; Antler, Natania; Pepper, Brian; Cory, David G.; Dobrovitski, Viatcheslav V.; Ramanathan, Chandrasekhar; Viola, Lorenza (American Physical Society, 2009-11)
    The [superscript 19]F spins in a crystal of fluorapatite have often been used to experimentally approximate a one-dimensional spin system. Under suitable multipulse control, the nuclear-spin dynamics may be modeled to first ...
  • Wommack, Andrew; Robson, Scott A.; Wanniarachchi, Yoshitha A.; Wan, Andrea; Turner, Christopher J.; Wagner, Gerhard; Nolan, Elizabeth M. (American Chemical Society, 2012-12)
    Human defensin 5 (HD5) is a 32-residue host-defense peptide expressed in the gastrointestinal, reproductive, and urinary tracts that has antimicrobial activity. It exhibits six cysteine residues that are regiospecifically ...
  • Pozhidaeva, Alexandra; Pustovalova, Yulia; Bezsonova, Irina; Walker, Graham C.; Korzhnev, Dmitry M.; D'Souza, Sanjay Victor (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2012-06)
    Rev1 is a translesion synthesis (TLS) DNA polymerase essential for DNA damage tolerance in eukaryotes. In the process of TLS stalled high-fidelity replicative DNA polymerases are temporarily replaced by specialized TLS ...
  • Paxson, Heather Anne (University of California Press, 2010-09)
    Although the history of cheesemaking in the United States tells largely a tale of industrialization, there is a submerged yet continuous history of small-batch, hands-on, artisan cheese manufacture. This tradition, carried ...
  • Cesarini, David Alexander; Apicella, Coren L.; Johannesson, Magnus; Dawes, Christopher T.; Lichtenstein, Paul; Wallace, Björn; Beauchamp, Jonathan; Westberg, Lars (Public Library of Science, 2010-06)
    Background Oxytocin (OXT) has been implicated in a suite of complex social behaviors including observed choices in economic laboratory experiments. However, actual studies of associations between oxytocin receptor (OXTR) ...
  • Wu, Eugene; Curino, Carlo; Madden, Samuel R. (CIDR Conference, 2011-01)
    One of the key tenets of database system design is making efficient use of storage and memory resources. However, existing database system implementations are actually extremely wasteful of such resources; for example, ...
  • Wang, Fa; Zhai, Hui; Lee, Dung-Hai (American Physical Society, 2010-05)
    We reiterate, in more details, our previous proposal of using quasiparticle interference to determine the pairing form factor in iron-based superconductors. We also present our functional renormalization group (FRG) results ...
  • Demaine, Erik D.; Hajiaghayi, Mohammad Taghi; Klein, Philip N. (Springer, 2009)
    We improve the approximation ratios for two optimization problems in planar graphs. For node-weighted Steiner tree, a classical network-optimization problem, the best achievable approximation ratio in general graphs is Θ ...
  • Haushofer, Johannes; Cornelisse, Sandra; Seinstra, Maayke; Fehr, Ernst; Kalenscher, Tobias; Joels, Marian (Public Library of Science, 2013-11)
    Intertemporal choices - involving decisions which trade off instant and delayed outcomes - are often made under stress. It remains unknown, however, whether and how stress affects intertemporal choice. We subjected 142 ...
  • Keshvari, Shaiyan Oliver; Berg, Ronald van den; Ma, Wei Ji (Public Library of Science, 2013-02)
    Change detection is a classic paradigm that has been used for decades to argue that working memory can hold no more than a fixed number of items (“item-limit models”). Recent findings force us to consider the alternative ...
  • Juanes, Ruben; Hager, Bradford H.; Herzog, Howard J. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2012-12)
    In a recent Perspective (1), Zoback and Gorelick argued that carbon capture and storage (CCS) is likely not a viable strategy for reducing CO[subscript 2] emissions to the atmosphere. They argued that maps of earthquake ...
  • Niset, Julien; Fiurášek, Jaromír; Cerf, Nicolas J. (American Physical Society, 2009-03)
    We prove that Gaussian operations are of no use for protecting Gaussian states against Gaussian errors in quantum communication protocols. Specifically, we introduce a new quantity characterizing any single-mode Gaussian ...
