A relatively small yet diverse group of plants are capable of sequestering metals in their shoot tissues at remarkably high concentrations that would be toxic to most organisms. This process, known as metal hyperaccumulation, is of interest for several reasons, including its relevance to the phytoremediation of metalpolluted soils. Most research on(More)
The visual system uses the pattern of motion on the retina to analyze the motion of objects in the world, and the motion of the observer him/herself. Distinguishing between retinal motion evoked by movement of the retina in space and retinal motion evoked by movement of objects in the environment is computationally difficult, and the human visual system(More)
Recently, we reported on a new H/D exchange- and matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI)-based technique, termed SUPREX, that can be used to measure the thermodynamic stability of a protein (Ghaemmaghami, S.; Fitzgerald, M. C.; Oas, T. G. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 2000, 97, 8296-8301). In the work described here, we report on our efforts to(More)
