Amyloid precursor protein (APP) is widely recognized for playing a central role in Alzheimer's disease pathogenesis. Although APP is expressed in several tissues outside the human central nervous system, the functions of APP and its family members in other tissues are still poorly understood. APP is involved in several biological functions which might be(More)
Nanoparticles that both absorb and scatter light, when dispersed in a liquid, absorb optical energy and heat a reduced fluid volume due to the combination of multiple scattering and optical absorption. This can induce a localized liquid-vapor phase change within the reduced volume without the requirement of heating the entire fluid. For binary liquid(More)
Cell division in eukaryotes requires the disassembly of the nuclear envelope (NE) at the beginning of mitosis and its reassembly at the end of mitosis. These processes are complex and involve coordinated steps where NE proteins have a crucial role. Lamina-associated polypeptide 1 (LAP1) is an inner nuclear membrane protein that has been associated with cell(More)
Posttranslational protein modifications, in particular reversible protein phosphorylation, are important regulatory mechanisms involved in cellular signaling transduction pathways. Thousands of human proteins are phosphorylatable and the tight regulation of phosphorylation states is crucial for cell maintenance and development. Protein phosphorylation(More)
Tunnel and thermal c-axis transport in BSCCO in the normal and pseudogap state. Abstract. We consider the problem of c-axis transport in double-layered cuprates, in particular with reference to Bi 2 Sr 2 CaCu 2 O 8+δ compounds. We exploit the effect of the two barriers on the thermal and tunnel transport. The resulting model is able to describe accurately(More)
