The Ca(2+)/calmodulin complex interacts with and regulates various enzymes and target proteins known as calmodulin-binding proteins (CaMBPs). This group of proteins includes molecular motors such as myosins. In this study, we show that non-muscle myosin-IIB is overexpressed in the brains of diabetic rats. We isolated CaMBPs from the brains of non-diabetic(More)
—We introduce a principled method for multi-robot coordination based on a generic model (termed a MacDec-POMDP) of multi-robot cooperative planning in the presence of stochasticity, uncertain sensing and communication limitations. We present a new MacDec-POMDP planning algorithm that searches over policies represented as finite-state controllers, rather(More)
This paper presents a probabilistic framework for synthesizing control policies for general multi-robot systems that is based on decentralized partially observable Markov decision processes (Dec-POMDPs). Dec-POMDPs are a general model of decision-making where a team of agents must cooperate to optimize a shared objective in the presence of uncertainty.(More)
Representative organoborane mixtures were quantitatively converted to their borohydrides through their reaction with activated KH (KH), permitting their detailed analysis by (11)B NMR. Through the treatment of commercial KH with a THF solution of lithium aluminum hydride (LAH), a dramatic change in the surface morphology results as revealed by scanning(More)
The use of antiparasitic pesticides (APs) has been widely required by the salmon industry to treat diseases. The direct emission of chemicals in the seawater has produced uncertainty about the potential effects on nontarget organisms, such as crustaceans. The aim of this study was to assess the toxicity of three APs used by the salmon farm industry, such as(More)

Abstract We describe a probabilistic framework for synthesizing control policies for general multi-robot systems, given environment and sensor models and a cost function. Decentralized , partially observable Markov decision processes(More)
The major royal jelly protein 1 (MRJP1) is the main glycoprotein in honey bee royal jelly. In brain tissues, MRJP1 is found in intercellular spaces and associated to cytoskeleton within cells. MRJP1 must be involved in multiple biological functions, yet there is a lack of structural information on the protein. MRJP1 was herein purified from royal jelly and(More)
