The hypothesis is proposed that the body contains a pool of protein turning over by lifetime rather than traditional first-order kinetics. The basis of the hypothesis is the observation of a step in the labelling curve or urinary ammonia during constant infusion of [15N]glycine. A four pool model has been constructed with different values for the rate of(More)
In studies of whole body protein turnover, recycling of tracer from the breakdown of labelled protein is usually neglected; this neglect may introduce a significant error. A three-pool model with fast and slowly turning over protein pools has been used to calculate recycling rates over a range of sizes and turnover rates of the protein pools. Complete and(More)
We report a numerical investigation of the Anderson transition in two-dimensional systems with spin-orbit coupling. An accurate estimate of the critical exponent nu for the divergence of the localization length in this universality class has to our knowledge not been reported in the literature. Here we analyze the SU(2) model. We find that for this model(More)
We propose a generalization of multifractal analysis that is applicable to the critical regime of the Anderson localization-delocalization transition. The approach reveals that the behavior of the probability distribution of wave function amplitudes is sufficient to characterize the transition. In combination with finite-size scaling, this formalism permits(More)
We reconcile the phenomenon of mesoscopic conductance fluctuations with the single parameter scaling theory of the Anderson transition. We calculate three averages of the conductance distribution, exp(<lng>), <g>, and 1/<R>, where g is the conductance in units of e(2)/h and R = 1/g is the resistance, and demonstrate that these quantities obey single(More)
Abstract. A review of recent progress in numerical studies of the Anderson transition in three dimensional systems is presented. From high precision calculations the critical exponent ν for the divergence of the localization length is estimated to be ν = 1.57 ± 0.02 for the orthogonal universality class, which is clearly distinguished from ν = 1.43 ± 0.03(More)
