In the presence of bound Mn2+, the three- dimensional structure of the ligand-binding A-domain from the integrin CR3 (CD11b/CD18) is shown to exist in the "open" conformation previously described only for a crystalline Mg2+ complex. The open conformation is distinguished from the "closed" form by the solvent exposure of F302, a direct T209-Mn2+ bond, and(More)
Using the foraging movements of an insectivorous bat, Myotis mystacinus, we describe temporal switching of foraging behaviour in response to resource availability. These observations conform to predictions of optimized search under the Lévy flight paradigm. However, we suggest that this occurs as a result of a preference behaviour and knowledge of resource(More)
Eight new microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized for the Natterer’s bat Myotis nattereri from a microsatellite-enriched genomic library. The usefulness of these markers was assessed by screening a sample comprising 100 specimens collected from throughout the species range in Europe. Both moderately and highly polymorphic loci were identified(More)

Description This package provides functions for the hyperbolic and related distributions. Density, distribution and quantile functions and random number generation are provided for the hyperbolic distribution, the generalized hyperbolic distribution, the generalized inverse Gaussian distribution and the skew-Laplace distribution. Additional functionality is(More)

Using a laser trap, we have studied the properties of erythrocytes from a sickle cell anemia patient (SCA) after receiving an intravenous blood transfusion, and a normal adult individual carrying normal adult hemoglobin. The hemoglobin type and quantitation assessment was carried out by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). We conducted an analysis(More)
Description Functions are provided for the density function, distribution function, quantiles and random number generation for the skew hyperbolic t-distribution. There are also functions that fit the distribution to data. There are functions for the mean, variance, skewness, kurtosis and mode of a given distribution and to calculate moments of any order(More)
