Anticalins are a novel class of engineered ligand-binding proteins with tailored specificities derived from the lipocalin scaffold. The anticalin FluA complexes fluorescein as ligand with high affinity, and it effects almost complete quenching of its steady-state fluorescence. To study the underlying mechanism, we have applied femtosecond absorption(More)
On the base of the estimator variance analysis we present a classification for a number digital chaos communication schemes and conventional spread spectrum techniques, which allows the qualitative comparison of the behaviour of the systems under the presence of additive white Gaussian noise on the channel. The classification results in a ranking and shows(More)
In this paper the modeling of a signal by a chaotic generator with respect to a specified signal statistic will be considered. To accomplish that, the considered class of n-dimensional piecewise linear Markov generators will first be analyzed analytically, yielding an algebraic expression for the statistical quantity in question. Based on this analytical(More)
This paper demonstrates the application of cumulant equations to the analysis of non-recursive systems with polynomial characteristics, as they are often found in the base-band equivalents of communication systems. The described method leads to an analytical characterization of the systems, which is not known so far for many chaos communication systems. We(More)
In this paper we consider chaotic discrete-time systems which generate polyphase sequences. First we give the definition of infinite polyphase sequences with perfect correlation properties. Then a simple design rule for chaotic generators is derived which guarantees that the generated sequences are perfect. Following this rule we construct families of(More)
From previous thermal and photoinduced charge-transfer reactions in duplex DNA there is accumulative evidence for an attenuation parameter beta of the distance dependence in the range 0.6-0.8 A(-1), with the exception of one specific system exhibiting beta = 1.5 A(-1) which is reinvestigated in this paper. Femtosecond to nanosecond time-resolved pump-probe(More)
