The Velocity Field Predicted by the Optical Redshift Survey
We have used the Optical Redshift Survey (ORS) of Santiago et al. to construct the gravity field due to fluctuations in the galaxy density field out to distances of 8000 km s-1. At large scales whereExpand

Biochemistry of smooth muscle myosin light chain kinase.
The smooth muscle isoform of myosin light chain kinase (MLCK) is a Ca(2+)-calmodulin-activated kinase that is found in many tissues. It is particularly important for regulating smooth muscleExpand

Direct evidence for functional smooth muscle myosin II in the 10S self-inhibited monomeric conformation in airway smooth muscle cells
The 10S self-inhibited monomeric conformation of myosin II has been characterized extensively in vitro. Based upon its structural and functional characteristics, it has been proposed to be anExpand

Evolution of the cluster abundance in non-Gaussian models
We carry out N-body simulations of several non-Gaussian structure formation models, including Peebles’ isocurvature cold dark matter model, cosmic string models, and a model with primordial voids. WeExpand

Characterization of tightly associated smooth muscle myosin-myosin light-chain kinase-calmodulin complexes.
A current popular model to explain phosphorylation of smooth muscle myosin (SMM) by myosin light-chain kinase (MLCK) proposes that MLCK is bound tightly to actin but weakly to SMM. We found that MLCKExpand

Kinetic and motor functions mediated by distinct regions of the regulatory light chain of smooth muscle myosin.
To understand the importance of selected regions of the regulatory light chain (RLC) for phosphorylation-dependent regulation of smooth muscle myosin (SMM), we expressed three heavy meromyosinsExpand

Subsidies for succulents: Evaluating the Las Vegas Cash-for-Grass rebate program
I estimate the water savings and property value effects of a Las Vegas area water conservation program that subsidizes conversions of lawn to desert landscape. Using event studies and panelExpand

A unity power factor, maximum power point tracking battery charger for low power wind turbines
This paper proposes a unique implementation of power factor correction (PFC) and maximum power point tracking (MPPT) for low power wind turbines. For a given wind condition, there is a uniqueExpand

Using a Non-Averaged Displacement Analysis to Characterize Multiple Populations of Single Molecule Motions
Microscopic motions of fluorescently labeled single molecules often switch between bound, freely diffusing, and uni-directionally moving states, and in many systems (see below) determining theExpand
The Combined Effects of ADP, ATP, and Myosin Density on Cooperative Activation of Thin Filaments
Cooperative activation of thin filaments has been achieved by decreasing [ATP], increasing [ADP], and increasing myosin densities; however, these observations have yet to be incorporated into aExpand
