The order Magnaporthales (Ascomycota, Fungi) includes devastating pathogens of cereals, such as the rice blast fungus Pyricularia (Magnaporthe) oryzae, which is a model in host-pathogen interaction studies. Magnaporthales also includes saprotrophic species associated with grass roots and submerged wood. Despite its scientific and economic importance, the(More)
Transcriptome and genome data from twenty stony coral species and a selection of reference bilaterians were studied to elucidate coral evolutionary history. We identified genes that encode the proteins responsible for the precipitation and aggregation of the aragonite skeleton on which the organisms live, and revealed a network of environmental sensors that(More)
Geometric line drawings were presented to normal subjects in the left visual field (LVF) or right visual field (RVF) at various degrees of rotation from a centrally presented vertical standard. The task of the subject was to indicate with a reaction time (RT) response whether the laterally presented stimulus could be rotated into the vertical standard or if(More)
On a simple manual reaction-time (RT) task to lateralized visual signals, right-handers and left-handers with the noninverted handwriting posture (RN and LN subjects, respectively) were faster and more consistent when the signal and response hand were homolateral as compared to heterolateral, but left-handers with the inverted handwriting posture (LI(More)
The accuracy of performance in identifying syllables flashed to the RVF (right visual field) or LVF (left visual field) was strongly affected by the lateralization of and response accuracy for the previous stimulus, presented 10-20 sec earlier. For both the LVF and RVF, performance was better on Pre-LVF trials (previous stimulus in LVF) than on Pre-RVF(More)
OBJECTIVE Screening for trisomy 21 by fetal nuchal translucency (NT) thickness at 11 to 13 + 6 weeks' gestation requires an appropriate examination of the NT. Errors in the assessment of NT may lead to an under- or overestimation of the NT and to incorrect patient-specific risks. In this study we aimed to examine the importance of the mid-sagittal section(More)
Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations are used to model changes in the conformational preferences of a model peptide during the transition from a hydrated environment (charged nanodroplet generated by electrospray ionization) to the solvent-free peptide ion. The charged droplet consists of ∼2400 water molecules, 22 hydronium ions, and 10 chloride and contains(More)
