Selective Depletion of Clear Synaptic Vesicles and Enhanced Quantal Transmitter Release at Frog Motor Nerve Endings Produced by Trachynilysin, a Protein Toxin Isolated from Stonefish (Synanceia
Our previous observation that low concentrations of stonefish (Synanceia trachynis) venom elicit spontaneous quantal acetylcholine release from vertebrate motor nerve terminals prompted our presentExpand

Achieving Rental Harmony with a Secretive Roommate
TLDR
We give a new elementary proof that the subjective preferences of only n roommates in an n-bedroom apartment actually suffice to achieve envy-free rent division. Expand

Ca(2+) and Na(+) contribute to the swelling of differentiated neuroblastoma cells induced by equinatoxin-II.
Equinatoxin-II (EqTx-II), a cytotoxic protein (mol.wt 20 kDa) isolated from the sea anemone Actinia equina, was found to consistently increase the three-dimensional projected area of differentiatedExpand

Effects of trachynilysin, a protein isolated from stonefish (Synanceia trachynis) venom, on frog atrial heart muscle.
The effects of trachynilysin (TLY), a protein toxin isolated from stonefish (Synanceia trachynis) venom, were studied on the electrical and mechanical activities of frog atrial fibres. TLY (1Expand

Sodium-dependent increase in quantal secretion induced by brevetoxin-3 in Ca2+-free medium is associated with depletion of synaptic vesicles and swelling of motor nerve terminals in situ
Brevetoxin-3 at nanomolar concentrations markedly enhanced spontaneous quantal transmitter release from neuromuscular junctions equilibrated in a Ca2+-free EGTA medium. After about 3 h, the sustainedExpand

Selective depolarization of the muscle membrane in frog nerve‐muscle preparations by a chromatographically purified extract of the dinoflagellate Ostreopsis lenticularis
The actions of a chromatographically identified extract of the marine dinoflagellate Ostreopsis lenticularis, named ostreotoxin‐3 (OTX‐3), were studied on frog isolated neuromuscular preparations.Expand

Envy-free cake division without assuming the players prefer nonempty pieces.
TLDR
We prove that, even if this condition is not satisfied, it is still possible to get such a division when $n$ is a prime number or is equal to $4$. Expand

Tverberg theorems over discrete sets of points
TLDR
We determine the $m$-Tverberg number, when $m \geq 3$, of any discrete subset $S$ of $\mathbb{R}^2$ (a generalization of an unpublished result of Doignon). Expand

Different versions of the nerve theorem and rainbow simplices.
Given a simplicial complex and a collection of subcomplexes covering it, the nerve theorem, a fundamental tool in topological combinatorics, guarantees a certain connectivity of the simplicialExpand
