The pressure of a sound varies systematically with a listener's distance from a sound source, providing a useful cue for perceiving changes in the distance between a listener and a sound-producing object. The pressure-discrimination hypothesis predicts that thresholds for discriminating changes in distance are constrained by the underlying ability to(More)
Fission yeast cells expressing the human gene encoding the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor protein p21Cip1 were severely compromised for cell cycle progress. The degree of cell cycle inhibition was related to the level of p21Cip1 expression. Inhibited cells had a 2C DNA content and were judged by cytology and pulsed field gel electrophoresis to be in the(More)
Phosphotyrosyl turnover is an essential regulatory mechanism for many biological processes, and the balance between tyrosine kinases and phosphatases plays a major role in the control of cell proliferation. Phenylarsine oxide (PAO), a potent inhibitor of tyrosine phosphatases (PTPase), was used to investigate the involvement of PTPase in the growth and(More)
The LHC magnet R&D program has shown that the limit of NbTi technology at 1.9 K was in the 10-to-10.5-T range. Hence, to go beyond the 10-T threshold, it is necessary to change the superconducting material. Given the state of the art in HTS, the only serious candidate is Nb3Sn. A series of dipole magnet models built at Twente University and LBNL as well as(More)
With the test of the first full scale prototype in JuneJuly 1998, the R&D on the long superconducting dipoles based on the LHC design of 1993-95 has come to an end. This second generation of long magnets has a 56 mm coil aperture, is wound with 15 mm wide cable arranged in a 5 coil block layout. The series includes four 10 m long model dipoles, whose coil(More)
