Population outbreaks of crown-of-thorns sea star (Acanthaster planci L.) remain one of the most significant biological disturbances on tropical coral reefs although the increasing attention given to other threats has greatly limited recent progress in understanding the cause and consequences of this phenomenon. In September 2005 dramatic increases in the(More)
Tunable, monochromatic x-rays have been generated in the Laser Synchrotron Source (LSS) experiment at the Naval Research Laboratory by Thomson backscattering of laser photons from a relativistic electron beam. Laser photons from a 5 J, 10 nsec, Nd:glass laser at 1053 nm wavelength are backscattered from a 4 MeV, 300 mA electron beam generated by an S-band(More)
Increasing evidence suggests that the aggregation of the small peptide Abeta42 plays an important role in the development of Alzheimer's disease. Inhibiting the initial aggregation of Abeta42 may be an effective treatment for preventing, or slowing, the onset of the disease. Using an in vivo screen based on the enzyme EGFP, we have searched through two(More)
