Semianalytic model of electron pulse propagation: Magnetic lenses and rf pulse compression cavities
(American Institute of Physics, 2010-12-15)
The analytical Gaussian electron pulse propagation model of Michalik and Sipe [J. Appl. Phys. 99, 054908 (2006)] is extended to include the action of external forces on the pulse. The resultant ability to simulate efficiently ...
The Drosophila Anion Exchanger (DAE) lacks a detectable interaction with the spectrin cytoskeleton
(BioMed Central, 2010-06-23)
Background: Current models suggest that the spectrin cytoskeleton stabilizes interacting ion transport proteins at the plasma membrane. The human erythrocyte anion exchanger (AE1) was the first membrane transport protein ...
Aligning Psychological Assessment with Psychological Science
(Cambridge University Press, 2010-04)
Network analysis is a promising step forward in efforts to align psychological assessment with explanatory theory in psychological science. The implications of Cramer et al.'s analysis are quite general. Networks analysis ...
Speculative fictions of slavery
(Duke University Press, 2010-12)
Transgene rescue identifies an essential function for Drosophila beta spectrin in the nervous system and a selective requirement for ankyrin-2-binding activity
(American Society for Cell Biology, 2010-08-15)
The protein spectrin is ubiquitous in animal cells and is believed to play important roles in cell shape and membrane stability, cell polarity, and endomembrane traffic. Experiments here were undertaken to identify sites ...
Neurexin in embryonic Drosophila neuromuscular junctions
(Public Library of Science, 2010-06-14)
Background: Neurexin is a synaptic cell adhesion protein critical for synapse formation and function. Mutations in neurexin and neurexin-interacting proteins have been implicated in several neurological diseases. Previous ...
An Alpha-Catulin Homologue Controls Neuromuscular Function through Localization of the Dystrophin Complex and BK Channels in Caenorhabditis elegans
(Public Library of Science, 2010-08)
The large conductance, voltage- and calcium-dependent potassium (BK) channel serves as a major negative feedback regulator of calcium-mediated physiological processes and has been implicated in muscle dysfunction and ...
The Bioethics of Diagnosis: A Biocultural Critique of Certainty
(Springer Verlag, 2010-06)
This article argues that traditional models of diagnosis are incomplete in their reliance on a models of certainty that are no longer tenable in a postmodern world. Further, it argues that the current form of diagnosis, ...
Local holomorphic De Rham cohomology
(International Press, 2010-03)
Local holomorphic De Rham cohomology introduced in this paper and punctured local holomorphic De Rham cohomology introduced by Huang-Luk-Yau are two important local invariants for varieties with isolated singularities. We ...
The Treatment Advocacy Program: A randomized controlled trial of a peer-led safer sex intervention for HIV-infected Men who have Sex with Men
(American Psychological Association, 2010-12)
Objectives: Primary care may be an effective venue for delivering behavioral interventions for sexual safety among HIV-positive men who have sex with men (MSM); however, few studies show efficacy for such an approach. We ...
