During the past several years, numerous laboratories have reported isolation and purification of proteinase inhibitors from human urine. Many of these molecules were incompletely characterized and some of them may have been artifacts in part because of harsh procedures used for their isolation. Consequently, there is disagreement and confusion regarding the(More)
The plant specific Dof (DNA Binding with One Zinc Finger) transcription factors (TFs) perform many different functions, and some members of this family appear to play an important role in the evolution of the vascular system characteristic of land plants. Here we report the functional characterization of a Dof TF from Arabidopsis (At4g00940-AtDof4.1).(More)
New sets of parameters (" tunes ") for the underlying-event (UE) modelling of the pythia8, pythia6 and herwig++ Monte Carlo event generators are constructed using different parton distribution functions. Combined fits to CMS UE proton–proton (pp) data at √ s = 7 TeV and to UE proton–antiproton (pp) data from the CDF experiment at lower √ s, are used to(More)
The human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class II DQB1*0201/0202-DRB1*04 genotype has been identified as predisposing to type 1 diabetes [insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM)] in the Saudi Arabian population (P = 0.0002; odds ratio = 0.67; 95% confidence interval = 0.009-0.381). In this study, we searched for a factor at the DPB1 locus by analysing DPB1(More)
A search for narrow resonances decaying to an electron and a muon is presented. The eμ mass spectrum is also investigated for non-resonant contributions from the production of quantum black holes (QBHs). The analysis is performed using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb−1 collected in proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass(More)
A measurement is presented of differential cross sections for Higgs boson (H) production in pp collisions at √ s = 8 TeV. The analysis exploits the H → γ γ decay in data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.7 fb −1 collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC. The cross section is measured as a function of the kinematic properties of the diphoton(More)
The production cross section of a W boson in association with two b jets is measured using a sample of proton–proton collisions at √ s = 8 TeV collected by the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 19.8 fb −1. The W bosons are reconstructed via their leptonic decays, W → ν, where = μ or e. The fiducial(More)
A measurement of the top quark pair production (tt) cross section in proton–proton collisions at the centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV is presented using data collected with the CMS detector at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 19.6 fb −1. This analysis is performed in the tt decay channels with one isolated, high transverse momentum(More)
The cross section of top quark–antiquark pair production in proton–proton collisions at √ s = 13 TeV is measured by the CMS experiment at the LHC, using data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 2.2 fb −1. The measurement is performed by analyzing events in which the final state includes one electron, one muon, and two or more jets, at least one of(More)
