Retroviruses that have the ability to infect germ line cells can become an integral and inherited part of the host genome. About 8% of the human chromosomal DNA consists of sequences derived from infections by retroviruses that presumably circulated 2-40 millions of years ago, and some elements are actually much older. Post-insertional recombinations,(More)
The potential involvement of actin and fodrin (brain spectrin) in secretory events has been assessed in primary cultured guinea pig parotid acinar cells, using as a tool affinity purified anti-alpha-fodrin antibody, phalloidin, and immunofluorescence techniques. In resting parotid acinar cells fodrin and actin appeared as a continuous ring under the plasma(More)

The VENUS project aims at providing scientific methodologies and technological tools for the virtual exploration of deep underwater archaeology sites. Underwater archaeological sites, for example shipwrecks, offer extraordinary opportunities for archaeologists due to factors such as darkness, low temperatures and a low oxygen rate which are favourable to(More)

Trimble introduced a new generation of terrestrial laserscanners (TLS) in October 2005. It was on the one side a further development of the Mensi GS200 series and on the other hand presented as " the 3D scanner that thinks like a surveyor ". The Trimble GX was tested regarding its precision, accuracy, attitude of reflection at different coloured surfaces(More)
Experimental and theoretical activities are underway at CERN [1] with the aim of examining the feasibility of a very-high-flux neutrino source (≈10 21 neutrinos/year). In the present scheme, a high-power proton beam (some 4 MW) bombards a target where pions are produced. The pions are collected and decay to muons under controlled optical condition. The(More)

The Hofkirche in Innsbruck, Austria, with its tomb of German Emperor Maximilian I is one of the most famous and outstanding historical monuments in Central Europe. For centuries the Cenotaph (i.e. empty tomb) was separated from the visitors by a black iron lattice. In addition, the fine caved marble plates were covered by glass. Because of a basic(More)
The tight emittance budget for the SPS as LHC injector demands for an accurate matching of the transfer line TT2/TT10 between the PS and SPS machines in order to minimise blow-up at injection into the SPS. Since the LHC beam is characterised by both small emittance and large momentum spread, simultaneous Twiss parameter and dispersion matching is mandatory.(More)
Late assembly (L)-domains are protein interaction motifs, whose dysfunction causes characteristic budding defects in enveloped viruses. Three different amino acid motifs, namely PT/SAP, PPXY and YPXnL have been shown to play a major role in the release of exogenous retroviruses. Although the L-domains of exogenous retroviruses have been studied(More)
We present a summary of simulation results for a muon cooling experiment. Two possible scenarios have been studied: The first is a subsection of the 88 MHz cooling channel in the CERN reference scheme for a neutrino factory. The second system studied is based on 200 MHz cavities as proposed in the US study II design. The studies comprise a scan of input(More)
