In response to complement activation, the membrane attack complex (MAC) assembles from fluid-phase proteins to form pores in lipid bilayers. MAC directly lyses pathogens by a 'multi-hit' mechanism; however, sublytic MAC pores on host cells activate signalling pathways. Previous studies have described the structures of individual MAC components and(More)
This paper presents the simulation environment for the EIDOS (equipment destined for orientation and safety) architecture applied to wildfire fighting operations. The development of this environment involves a multidisciplinary study, in which we have to handle several different types of information (geographical data, vegetation models, fire models, etc.)(More)
Disaster management is one of the most promising application fields of wireless sensor networks. In this work we focus on forest fire fighting operations. The role of the sensor network deployed in this scenario will consist in obtaining a representation (or a model) of the fire fronts, and distribute it to the firefighters in the area, in such a way they(More)
Eukaryotic ectotherms of the Southern Ocean face energetic challenges to protein folding assisted by the cytosolic chaperonin CCT. We hypothesize that CCT and its client proteins (CPs) have co-evolved molecular adaptations that facilitate CCT-CP interaction and the ATP-driven folding cycle at low temperature. To test this hypothesis, we compared the(More)
Disaster management is one of the most promising application fields of wireless sensor networks. In this application, the role of the sensor network usually consists in obtaining a representation or a model for a physical phenomenon spreading through the area. In this work we focus on forest fire fighting operations, proposing a distributed way for(More)
