An audio analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with the loop filter implemented by continuous-time (CT) and discretetime (DT) circuits is presented. A tuning circuit is used to compensate for changes in the RC product due to process skew, power supply, temperature and sampling rate variation. To eliminate errors caused by inter-symbol interference (ISI) in the(More)
Nanodiscs provide an excellent system for the structure-function investigation of membrane proteins. Its direct advantage lies in presenting a water soluble form of an otherwise hydrophobic molecule, making it amenable to a plethora of solution techniques. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance is one such high resolution approach that looks at the structure and(More)
Over the last two decades, our knowledge concerning intracellular events that regulate integrin's affinity to their soluble ligands has significantly improved. However, the mechanism of adhesion-induced integrin clustering and development of focal complexes, which could further mature to form focal adhesions, still remains under-investigated. Here we(More)
PLIC, Protein Linking IAP (CD47) to Cytoskeleton, have long since been implicated in connecting the extracellular membrane to the intracellular cell cytoskeleton. This phenomenon is supposedly achieved by bridging a receptor protein CD47 to vimentin, an intermediate filament, which in turn regulates integrin dependent cell spreading. Since the discovery of(More)
Small isoprenoid diphosphates, such as (E)-4-hydroxy-3-methyl-but-2-enyl diphosphate (HMBPP), are ligands of the internal domain of BTN3A1. Ligand binding in target cells promotes activation of Vγ9Vδ2 T cells. We demonstrate by small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) that HMBPP binding to the internal domain of BTN3A1 induces a conformational change in the(More)
