Neuronal cell death in neurodegenerative diseases: recurring themes around protein handling
Neuronal cell death plays a role in many chronic neurodegenerative diseases with the loss of particular subsets of neurons. The loss of the neurons occurs during a period of many years, which can make the mode(s) of cell ...
Structure of molecular liquids: cavity and bridge functions of the hard spheroid fluid
(American Physical Society, 2006-06-28)
We present methodologies for calculating the direct correlation function c(1,2), the cavity function y(1,2), and the bridge function b(1,2), for molecular liquids, from Monte Carlo simulations. As an example we present ...
Monte Carlo simulations of liquid crystals near rough walls
(American Institute of Physics, 2005-02-15)
The effect of surface roughness on the structure of liquid crystalline fluids near solid substrates is studied by Monte Carlo simulations. The liquid crystal is modeled as a fluid of soft ellipsoidal molecules and the ...
ENDOCOM: Abdominal aortic aneurysm test bench for in vitro simulation
An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a dilatation of the aorta at the abdominal level, whose rupture is a life threatening complication. Recent treatment procedures of AAA consists in endovascular treatment with covered ...
Surface stability of nonlinear magnetoelastic solids
The present paper proposes to identify surface stability when a magnetoelastic half-space is subjected to a pure homogeneous pre-deformation and to a magnetic field normal to its (plane) boundary. Clearly, the aim is to ...
Bcl-2 family on guard at the ER
(American Physiological Society, 2009)
The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is the main site for protein folding, lipid biosynthesis and calcium storage in the cell. Disturbances of these critical cellular functions lead to ER stress. The ER responds to disturbances ...
Multiwavelength observations of a TeV-Flare from W Comae
We report results from an intensive multiwavelength campaign on the intermediate-frequency-peaked BL Lacertae object W Com (z=0.102) during a strong outburst of very high energy gamma-ray emission in June 2008. The very ...
Observation of Extended VHE Emission from the Supernova Remnant IC 443 with VERITAS
We present evidence that the very-high-energy (VHE, E > 100 GeV) gamma-ray emission coincident with the supernova remnant IC 443 is extended. IC 443 contains one of the best-studied sites of supernova remnant/molecular ...
Detection of Extended VHE Gamma Ray Emission from G106.3+2.7 with VERITAS
We report the detection of very-high-energy (VHE) gamma-ray emission from supernova remnant (SNR) G106.3+2.7. Observations performed in 2008 with the VERITAS atmospheric Cherenkov gamma-ray telescope resolve extended ...
