Nerve growth factor-mediated inhibition of apoptosis post-caspase activation is due to removal of active caspase-3 in a lysosome-dependent manner
(Nature Publishing Group, 2014-05-01)
Nerve growth factor (NGF) is well characterised as an important pro-survival factor in neuronal cells that can inhibit apoptotic cell death upstream of mitochondrial outer membrane permeabilisation. Here we addressed the ...
Systems-based approaches to unravel multi-species microbial community functioning
(Research Network of Computational and Structural Biotechnology, 2014-12-03)
Some of the most transformative discoveries promising to enable the resolution of this century's grand societal challenges will most likely arise from environmental science and particularly environmental microbiology ...
Tandem reactions via Barton Esters with intermolecular addition and vinyl radical substitution onto indole
(American Chemical Society, 2014-05-16)
A one-pot initiator-free Barton ester decomposition with tandem radical addition onto alkyl propiolates or phenylacetylene with aromatic substitution of the resultant vinyl radical allows convenient access to new 9-substituted ...
Computations for Coxeter arrangements and Solomon's descent algebra III: Groups of rank seven and eight
In this paper we extend the computations in parts I and II of this series of papers and complete the proof of a conjecture of Lehrer and Solomon expressing the character of a finite Coxeter group W acting on the p-th graded ...
Cohomology of Coxeter arrangements and Solomon's descent algebra
(American Mathematical Society, 2014-06-19)
We refine a conjecture by Lehrer and Solomon on the structure of the Orlik-Solomon algebra of a finite Coxeter group W and relate it to the descent algebra of W. As a result, we claim that both the group algebra of W and ...
Manipulation of intestinal epithelial cell function by the cell contact-dependent type III secretion systems of Vibrio parahaemolyticus
(Frontiers Media, 2014-01-10)
Vibrio parahaemolyticus elicits gastroenteritis by deploying Type III Secretion Systems (TTSS) to deliver effector proteins into epithelial cells of the human intestinal tract. The bacteria must adhere to the human cells ...
Complexifiable characteristic classes
We examine the topological characteristic cohomology classes of complexified vector bundles. In particular, all the classes coming from the real vector bundles underlying the complexification are determined.
Processing and analysis of high temperature geothermal acoustic borehole image logs in the Taupo Volcanic Zone, New Zealand
Acoustic borehole televiewer (BHTV) logs provide direct observations of lithology, structure and in-situ stress in reservoirs, essential for successful well targeting and field management. Analyses of BHTV logs acquired ...
Fracture geometries and processes in andesites at Mt Ruapehu, New Zealand: implications for the fracture modelling of the Rotokawa Geothermal Field
(Le Consortium Gocad, 2014-09-16)
Fluid flow in the high-temperature (300 C), andesite-hosted Rotokawa geothermal reservoir (Taupo Volcanic Zone (TVZ), New Zealand) is largely controlled by fractures and faults but their geometries are still poorly ...
Rock properties of Greywacke Basement hosting geothermal reservoirs, New Zealand: preliminary results
(Stanford University, 2014-02-24)
Geothermal resources in New Zealand are known to be hosted in greywacke basement rocks. Fluid flow in these reservoirs and the wells that access them is controlled by fracture networks. As such it is of vital importance ...
