  • Wibawa, M. S.; Dahl, Jason; Rival, D. E.; Steele, Stephanie C.; Weymouth, Gabriel D.; Triantafyllou, Michael S. (Cambridge University Press, 2012-02)
    If a moving body were made to vanish within a fluid, its boundary-layer vorticity would be released into the fluid at all locations simultaneously, a phenomenon we call global vorticity shedding. We approximate this process ...
  • Emanuel, Kerry Andrew (American Meteorological Society, 2011-10)
    While many studies of the effects of global warming on hurricanes predict an increase in various metrics of Atlantic basin-wide activity, it is less clear that this signal will emerge from background noise in measures of ...
  • Wunsch, Carl; Heimbach, Patrick (American Meteorological Society, 2009-08)
    The zonally integrated meridional and vertical velocities as well as the enthalpy transports and fluxes in a least squares adjusted general circulation model are used to estimate the top-to-bottom oceanic meridional ...
  • Rosenbaum, Eric Ross (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009-10)
    Expressive inquiry is a process of exploration and discovery within an artistic medium that supports both intuitive play and iterative experimentation. Glowdoodle is a system that enables people to paint with light using ...
  • Adams, Allan; Dyer, Ethan Stanley; Lee, Jae Hoon (Springer-Verlag, 2013-01)
    We identify a simple mechanism by which H-flux satisfying the modified Bianchi identity arises in garden-variety (0, 2) gauged linear sigma models. Taking suitable limits leads to effective gauged linear sigma models with ...
  • Rapoport, Benjamin I.; Kedzierski, Jakub T.; Sarpeshkar, Rahul (Public Library of Science, 2011-06)
    We have developed an implantable fuel cell that generates power through glucose oxidation, producing 3:4 mW cm{2steady-state power and up to 180 mW cm{2 peak power. The fuel cell is manufactured using a novel approach, ...
  • Chou, Danny Hung-Chieh; Tang, Benjamin C.; Lin, Amy B.; Thapa, Lavanya S.; Deng, David; Truong, Jonathan V.; Langer, Robert; Webber, Matthew; Cortinas, Abel Bryan; Anderson, Daniel Griffith (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2015-02)
    Since its discovery and isolation, exogenous insulin has dramatically changed the outlook for patients with diabetes. However, even when patients strictly follow an insulin regimen, serious complications can result as ...
  • Englert, Christoph; Spannowsky, Michael; McCullough, Matthew P. (American Physical Society, 2014-01)
    Analyses of boosted Higgs bosons from associated production comprise some of the main search channels for the Higgs boson at the LHC. The gluon-initiated gg → hZ subprocess has largely been ignored in phenomenological ...
  • Masin, Mark; Vazquez, Jessica; Rossi, Simona; Groeneveld, Svenja; Samson, Natasha; Schwalie, Petra C; Deplancke, Bart; Moradpour, Darius; Oliver, Trudy; Meylan, Etienne; Frawley, Laura Elizabeth; Gouttenoire, Jerome (BioMed Central Ltd, 2014-07)
    Background: Alterations in glucose metabolism and epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) constitute two important characteristics of carcinoma progression toward invasive cancer. Despite an extensive characterization of ...
  • Tye, Kay (Elsevier, 2012-11)
    How the nucleus accumbens integrates information from multiple upstream regions has been a central question for decades. In this issue of Neuron, Britt et al. (2012) photostimulate glutamatergic axons from the amygdala, ...
  • Selcher, Joel C.; Xu, Weifeng; Hanson, Jesse E.; Malenka, Robert C.; Madison, Daniel V. (Elsevier, 2011-11)
    Receptor subunit composition is believed to play a major role in the synaptic trafficking of AMPA receptors (AMPARs), and thus in activity-dependent synaptic plasticity. To isolate a physiological role of GluA1-containing ...
  • Tharakaraman, Kannan; Jayaraman, Akila; Raman, Rahul; Viswanathan, Karthik; Stebbins, Nathan W.; Johnson, David Alan; Shriver, Zachary H.; Sasisekharan, V.; Sasisekharan, Ram; Stebbins, Nathan W. (Elsevier B.V., 2013-06)
    The advent of H7N9 in early 2013 is of concern for a number of reasons, including its capability to infect humans, the lack of clarity in the etiology of infection, and because the human population does not have pre-existing ...
  • Raman, Rahul; Tharakaraman, Kannan; Jayaraman, Akila; Sasisekharan, Ram; Shriver, Zachary H.; Sasisekharan, Viswanathan (Elsevier, 2014-08)
    Influenza A viruses are rapidly evolving pathogens with the potential for novel strains to emerge and result in pandemic outbreaks in humans. Some avian-adapted subtypes have acquired the ability to bind to human glycan ...
  • Viswanathan, Karthik; Chandrasekaran, Aarthi; Srinivasan, Aravind; Raman, Rahul; Sasisekharan, V.; Sasisekharan, Ram (2010-08)
    Influenza A viruses, members of the Orthomyxoviridae family, are responsible for annual seasonal influenza epidemics and occasional global pandemics. The binding of viral coat glycoprotein hemagglutinin (HA) to sialylated ...
  • Nikel, Pablo I.; Romero-Campero, Francisco J.; Zeidman, Joshua A.; Goni-Moreno, Angel; de Lorenzo, Victor (American Society for Microbiology, 2015-03)
    The growth of the soil bacterium Pseudomonas putida KT2440 on glycerol as the sole carbon source is characterized by a prolonged lag phase, not observed with other carbon substrates. We examined the bacterial growth in ...
  • Eavarone, David A.; Kiziltepe, Tanyel; Sasisekharan, Ram; Sengupta, Shiladitya; Harfouche, Rania; Hentschel, Dirk M.; Piecewicz, Stephanie; Basu, Sudipta; Print, Cristin (American Heart Association, 2009-10)
    Background— Therapeutic vasculogenesis is an emerging concept that can potentially be harnessed for the management of ischemic pathologies. The present study elucidates the potential coregulation of vasculogenesis by the ...
  • Aich, Udayanath; Beckley, Nia; Shriver, Zachary H.; Raman, Rahul; Viswanathan, Karthik; Hobbie, Sven N.; Sasisekharan, Ram (John Wiley & Sons, Inc, 2011-05)
    Agglutination of red blood cells (RBCs), including chicken RBCs (cRBCs), has been used extensively to estimate viral titer, to screen glycan-receptor binding preference, and to assess the protective response of vaccines. ...
  • Jayaraman, Akila; Koh, Xiaoying; Li, Jing; Raman, Rahul; Viswanathan, Karthik; Shriver, Zachary H.; Sasisekharan, Ram (Portland Press, 2012-05)
    The glycoprotein HA (haemagglutinin) on the surface of influenza A virus plays a central role in recognition and binding to specific host cell-surface glycan receptors and in fusion of viral membrane to the host nuclear ...
  • Samsel, Anthony; Seneff, Stephanie (MDPI AG, 2013-04)
    Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup[superscript ®], is the most popular herbicide used worldwide. The industry asserts it is minimally toxic to humans, but here we argue otherwise. Residues are found in the main ...
  • Newey, Whitney K.; Windmeijer, Frank (Econometric Society, 2009-05)
    Using many moment conditions can improve efficiency but makes the usual generalized method of moments (GMM) inferences inaccurate. Two-step GMM is biased. Generalized empirical likelihood (GEL) has smaller bias, but the ...
