A precise measurement of the proton flux in primary cosmic rays with rigidity (momentum/charge) from 1 GV to 1.8 TV is presented based on 300 million events. Knowledge of the rigidity dependence of the proton flux is important in understanding the origin, acceleration, and propagation of cosmic rays. We present the detailed variation with rigidity of the(More)
A precision measurement by AMS of the positron fraction in primary cosmic rays in the energy range from 0.5 to 500 GeV based on 10.9 million positron and electron events is presented. This measurement extends the energy range of our previous observation and increases its precision. The new results show, for the first time, that above ∼200  GeV the positron(More)
Knowledge of the precise rigidity dependence of the helium flux is important in understanding the origin, acceleration, and propagation of cosmic rays. A precise measurement of the helium flux in primary cosmic rays with rigidity (momentum/charge) from 1.9 GV to 3 TV based on 50 million events is presented and compared to the proton flux. The detailed(More)
A series of alkyl tetrahydrofuran-2-carboxylates (1-4) bearing a new set of three pharmacophoric groups were tested as protein kinase C (PKC) ligands. The compounds were synthesized from commercially available glycidyl 4-methoxyphenyl ether. The correlation between their binding affinities for PKC-alpha and a conformational fit to phorbol ester indicates(More)
The design of potent protein kinase C (PK-C) ligands with low nanomolar binding affinities was accomplished by the combined use of pharmacophore- and receptor-guided approaches based on the structure of the physiological enzyme activator, diacylglycerol (DAG). Earlier use of the former approach, which was based on the structural equivalence of DAG and(More)
Edge detection is an important, but difficult, step in quantitative ultrasound (US) image analysis. In this paper, we present a new textural approach for detecting a class of edges in US images; namely, the texture edges with a weak regional mean gray-level difference (RMGD) between adjacent regions. The proposed approach comprises a vision model-based(More)
Precision measurements by the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer on the International Space Station of the primary cosmic-ray electron flux in the range 0.5 to 700 GeV and the positron flux in the range 0.5 to 500 GeV are presented. The electron flux and the positron flux each require a description beyond a single power-law spectrum. Both the electron flux and the(More)
Knowledge of the rigidity dependence of the boron to carbon flux ratio (B/C) is important in understanding the propagation of cosmic rays. The precise measurement of the B/C ratio from 1.9 GV to 2.6 TV, based on 2.3 million boron and 8.3 million carbon nuclei collected by AMS during the first 5 years of operation, is presented. The detailed variation with(More)
A series of substituted tetrahydrofurans with an embedded glycerol backbone carrying additional tetrahydrofuranylideneacetate or tetrahydrofuranylacetate motifs were grouped into four distinct templates (I-IV) according to stereochemistry. The compounds were designed to mimic three essential pharmacophores (C(3)-C=O, C(20)-OH and C(13)-C=O) of the phorbol(More)
Using the two-component model that includes both initial production from nucleon-nucleon hard scattering and regeneration from produced quark-gluon plasma (QGP), we have studied the effect of medium modifications of the binding energies and radii of quarkonia on their production in heavy-ion collisions. We find that the inclusion of medium effects is(More)
