We study the effect of primordial non-Gaussianity on large-scale structure, focusing upon the most massive virialized objects. Using analytic arguments and N-body simulations, we calculate the mass function and clustering of dark matter halos across a range of redshifts and levels of non-Gaussianity. We propose a simple fitting function for the mass(More)
The efficiency of cryopreservation of seeds of five rare and endangered species of temperate orchids belonging to Platanthera and Dactylorhiza genera followed by their asymbiotic culture in vitro, as well as of in vitro cultured D. fuchsii protocorms (specific stage of orchid embryo development after release from the seed coat) was investigated. Germination(More)
The application of the group theory to description of biological objects pseudosymmetry is introduced and substantiated by the example of rotatory symmetry of actinomorphic and zygomorphic flowers. Problems of biosymmetrics terminology are considered; point symmetry elements are characterized as being applied to description of flower symmetry; central(More)
Gold nanoparticles (GNPs) and GNP-based multifunctional nanocomposites are the subject of intensive studies and biomedical applications. This minireview summarizes our recent efforts in analytical and theranostic applications of engineered GNPs and nanocomposites by using plasmonic properties of GNPs and various optical techniques. Specifically, we consider(More)
We investigate the origin of halo assembly bias, the dependence of halo clustering on assembly history. We relate halo assembly to peak properties measured in the Lagrangian space of the initial linear Gaussian random density field, and show how these same Lagrangian properties determine large-scale bias. We focus on the two regimes where assembly bias has(More)
1012 T Th he er ra an no os st ti ic cs s In our paper [1], the Figure 6 legend should be corrected as follows: (b) TEM image of the same bacteria after a special washing procedure and simultaneous labeling with a mixture of O-specific conjugates (50-nm Au−Ag nanocages + anti-LPS antibodies) and H-specific conjugates (15-nm GNPs + anti-PFL antibodies).
Stress is a major factor for a risk of cerebrovascular catastrophes. Studying of mechanisms underlying stress-related brain-injures in neonates is crucial for development of strategy to prevent of neonatal stroke. Here, using a model of sound-stress-induced intracranial hemorrhages in newborn rats and optical methods, we found that cerebral veins are more(More)
In this study, we analyzed the time-depended scenario of stress response cascade preceding and accompanying brain hemorrhages in newborn rats using an interdisciplinary approach based on: a morphological analysis of brain tissues, coherent-domain optical technologies for visualization of the cerebral blood flow, monitoring of the cerebral oxygenation and(More)
The application of group theory to the description of biological objects’ pseudosymmetry is proposed and substantiated by the example of the rotatory symmetry of actinomorphic and zygomorphic flowers. The problems of biosymmetrics terminology are considered, and point symmetry elements are characterized as applied to the description of floral symmetry.(More)
