The Effect of Deformation on Grain Boundary Wetness in Partially Molten Peridotite
The spatial distribution of the melt phase can affect many properties of partially molten rocks, including viscosity and seismic wave velocity. A good way to quantify this distribution is the grain boundary wetness, the ...
Dynamic Monte Carlo Simulations of the Oxygen Electroreduction Reaction on a Bimetallic Surface
Platinum and platinum alloy surfaces are used as catalysts to promote the reduction of oxygen, one of the reactions used to generate electrical energy in low temperature fuel cells, which are sought as promissory clean ...
Effects of Dioxin on Clock, Melatonin Biosynthetic, and Redox Sensitive Genes on Chick Pinealocytes In Vitro
It has been speculated that dioxin treatment can modulate circadian rhythms. Cytochrome P4501A (CYP1A) is strongly induced by the xenobiotic dioxin via activation of arylhydrocarbon receptors within cells. Furthermore, ...
Comparison of Circadian Changes in the Retinas of Migrating and Non-migrating Blackcaps, Sylvia atricapilla
The retinas of birds and other vertebrates undergo morphological and physiological changes throughout the day, which help regulate daily changes in visual sensitivity. One particular change is the contraction and elongation ...
Gene Expression Profiling of 3T3-L1 Adipocytes Expressing the Mitochondrial Uncoupling Protein 1 (UCP1)
During the past 20 years, there has been a significant increase in the number of individuals developing type II diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Evidence from several studies indicates that obesity and weight gain (increase in ...
Seismic Discontinuities in the Mantle Beneath the Western Pacific: Evidence from ScS Reverberations
Earthquakes generate seismic waves that travel through the Earth and can be reflected by changes in density and/or seismic velocity that may relate to changes in the phase or chemical composition of the mantle. To study ...
The Advanced Research Consortium and RDF Guidelines
This presentation presents the Resource Data Framework (RDF) requirements of the Advanced Research Consortium.
Decoupling HAMP from TM2 in the Escherichia coli Aspartate Chemoreceptor
The HAMP (often found in Histidine kinases, Adenylate cyclases, Methyl-accepting chemotaxis proteins, and Phosphatases) domain is a widely conserved motif often found in transmembrane signaling proteins in many prokaryotes ...
Regulation of Pituitary Thyrotropin Production in Red Drum
Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), also known as thyrotropin, is a pituitary hormone which stimulates the thyroid gland to synthesize and secrete the thyroid hormones, thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). In tetrapod ...
The Effects of Estrogen on Theiler’s Virus Infection of Endothelial Cells
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. The pathogenesis of this disease is not fully understood, but it is thought to be triggered by viral infection during ...
