Wrinkles and creases in the bending, unbending and eversion of soft sectors
(The Royal Society, 2018-03-23)
We study what is clearly one of the most common modes of deformation found in nature, science and engineering, namely the large elastic bending of curved structures, as well as its inverse, unbending, which can be brought ...
Super stable fluorescein isothiocyanate isomer I monolayer for total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy
(American Chemical Society, 2018-08-27)
Total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy (TIRFM) is an important method in surface science and for the analysis of surface-bound macromolecules. Here, we developed and explored the use of a novel fluorescein ...
Reproducible, high-yielding, biological caproate production from food waste using a single-phase anaerobic reactor system
(BMC (part of Springer Nature), 2018-03-11)
Background: Nowadays, the vast majority of chemicals are either synthesised from fossil fuels or are extracted from agricultural commodities. However, these production approaches are not environmentally and economically ...
RIP2 enhances cell survival by activation of NF-ĸB in triple negative breast cancer cells
Receptor-interacting protein 2 (RIP2) is an essential mediator of inflammation and innate immunity, but little is known about its role outside the immune system. Recently, RIP2 has been linked to chemoresistance of triple ...
The natural bile acid surfactant sodium taurocholate (NaTC) as a coformer in coamorphous systems: Enhanced physical stability and dissolution behavior of coamorphous drug-NaTc systems
The amorphization of 18 different drugs on milling with one mole equivalent sodium taurocholate (NaTC) was investigated. In all cases the X-ray powder pattern showed an amorphous halo after milling at room temperature or ...
N=2 and N=4 subalgebras of super vertex operator algebras
(IOP Publishing, 2018-01-10)
We develop criteria to decide if an N=2 or N=4 super conformal algebra is a subalgebra of a super vertex operator algebra in general, and of a super lattice theory in particular. We give some specific examples.
A gene regulatory network underlying the formation of pre-placodal ectoderm in Xenopus laevis
(BioMed Central, 2018-06-16)
Background: The neural plate border ectoderm gives rise to key developmental structures during embryogenesis, including the neural crest and the preplacodal ectoderm. Many sensory organs and ganglia of vertebrates develop ...
Performance review of multiple reference versus time domain optical coherence tomography
We present a detailed characterization of noise sources in multiple reference optical coherence tomography (MR-OCT) compared to time-domain OCT (TD-OCT). The noise characteristics were modeled based on the TD-OCT noise ...
Characterising glyphosate exposures among amenity horticulturists using multiple spot urine samples
Background Glyphosate has recently received much public attention following its Group 2A probably carcinogenic to humans classification from the International Agency for Research on Cancer. Despite the widespread ...
Atomistic study of zwitterionic peptoid antifouling brushes
(American Chemical Society, 2018-08-24)
Using molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, we study the molecular behavior and hydration properties of a set of zwitterionic peptoid brushes, grafted on a rutile surface, that has been previously reported to exhibit ...
