Bax Inhibitor-1 Is a pH-dependent Regulator of Ca2+ Channel Activity in the Endoplasmic Reticulum*
In this study, Bax inhibitor-1 (BI-1) overexpression reduces the ER pool of Ca2+ released by thapsigargin. Cells overexpressing BI-1 also showed lower intracellular Ca2+ release induced by the Ca2+Expand

In defence of metric learning for speaker recognition
The objective of this paper is 'open-set' speaker recognition of unseen speakers, where ideal embeddings should be able to condense information into a compact utterance-level representation that has small intra-speaker and large inter-speakers distance. Expand

Structural overview on the allosteric activation of cyclic AMP receptor protein.
Cyclic AMP receptor protein (CRP) is a prokaryotic global transcription regulator that controls the expression of nearly 200 genes. The protein, allosterically activated by cAMP binding, binds to DNAExpand

Structural and functional studies of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis VapBC30 toxin-antitoxin system: implications for the design of novel antimicrobial peptides
Toxin-antitoxin (TA) systems play important roles in bacterial physiology, such as multidrug tolerance, biofilm formation, and arrest of cellular growth under stress conditions. To develop novelExpand
