We present a exactly soluble model for financial time series that mimics the long range volatility correlations known to be present in financial data. Although our model is asymptotically 'monofractal' by construction, it shows apparent multiscaling as a result of a slow crossover phenomenon on finite time scales. Our results suggest that it might be hard(More)
High-resolution two-dimensional gel electrophoresis of pulse-labeled Haemophilus influenzae extracts allows for the separation and quantification of more than five hundred protein spots. We have determined the changes in the protein synthesis patterns triggered by treatment with inhibitors of transcription, Rifampicin (Rif) and translation, Chloramphenicol(More)
Two-dimensional electrophoresis was applied to the global analysis of the cellular response of Haemophilus influenzae to sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim, both inhibitors of tetrahydrofolate synthesis. Deregulation of the synthesis rate of 118 proteins, involved in different metabolic pathways, was observed. The regulation of the genes involved in the(More)
The organization of polymerized actin in the mammalian cell is regulated by several members of the rho family. Three rho proteins, cdc42, rac and rho act in a cascade to organize the intracellular actin cytoskeleton. Rho proteins are involved in the formation of actin stress fibers and adhesion plaques in fibroblasts. During transformation of mammalian(More)
Earlier we have shown by in vitro reconstitution experiments that the pigment composition of the chlorophyll alb-binding light-harvesting complex of the green alga Chlorella fusca could be altered in a relatively broad range (Meyer and Wilhelm 1993). In this study we used these reconstituted complexes of different pigment loading to analyze the excitonic(More)
In this study we purified phagosomes of the ciliated protozoan Tetrahymena thermophila to analyze aspects of the maturation pathway of phagocytotic vesicles. Phagosomes were labeled with magnetic microparticles and then purified in high amounts with the help of a permanent magnet. By combining a pulse-chase labeling protocol with the magnetic separation(More)
Grünbaum introduced measures of symmetry for convex bodies that measure how far a given convex body is from a centrally symmetric one. Here, we introduce new measures of symmetry that measure how far a given convex body is from one with " enough symmetries ". To define these new measures of symmetry, we use affine covariant points. We give examples of(More)
