Systemic risk, here meant as the risk of default of a large portion of the financial system, depends on the network of financial exposures among institutions. However, there is no widely accepted methodology to determine the systemically important nodes in a network. To fill this gap, we introduce, DebtRank, a novel measure of systemic impact inspired by(More)
The activation of N-methyl-D-aspartate-receptors (NMDARs) in synapses provides plasticity and cell survival signals, whereas NMDARs residing in the neuronal membrane outside synapses trigger neurodegeneration. At present, it is unclear how these opposing signals are transduced to and discriminated by the nucleus. In this study, we demonstrate that Jacob is(More)
The advent of human genome sequencing project has led to a spurt in the number of protein sequences in the databanks. Success of structure based drug discovery severely hinges on the availability of structures. Despite significant progresses in the area of experimental protein structure determination, the sequence-structure gap is continually widening. Data(More)
Long-lasting changes in neuronal excitability require activity-dependent gene expression and therefore the transduction of synaptic signals to the nucleus. Synaptic activity is rapidly relayed to the nucleus by membrane depolarization and the propagation of Ca(2+)-waves. However, it is unlikely that Ca(2+)-transients alone can explain the specific genomic(More)
We analyse time series of CDS spreads for a set of major US and European institutions in a period overlapping the recent financial crisis. We extend the existing methodology of ε-drawdowns to the one of joint ε-drawups, in order to estimate the conditional probabilities of spike-like co-movements among pairs of spreads. After correcting for randomness and(More)
Sequence to structure of proteins is an unsolved problem. A possible coarse grained resolution to this entails specification of all the torsional (Φ, Ψ) angles along the backbone of the polypeptide chain. The Ramachandran map quite elegantly depicts the allowed conformational (Φ, Ψ) space of proteins which is still very large for the purposes of accurate(More)
Heparan sulfate (HS) proteoglycans represent a major component of the extracellular matrix and are critical for brain development. However, their function in the mature brain remains to be characterized. Here, acute enzymatic digestion of HS side chains was used to uncover how HSs support hippocampal function in vitro and in vivo. We found that long-term(More)
In this paper a blind estimation method based on second order statistics is described for the estimation of channel impulse response of indoor optical wireless communication system. Unlike the other training sequence based estimation methods this method does not require a training sequence to be transmitted with the transmission data to estimate(More)
Copper complex based on a new class of fluorescence OFF-ON sensor 1.Cu has been reported for the detection of trace amounts of water in various organic solvents such as CH3OH, THF, CH3CN, and acetone by means of fluorescence emission intensity. The probe is highly responsive to water in THF (DL = 0.003 wt %). The dissociation of copper from probe 1.Cu in(More)
Quality assessment of predicted model structures of proteins is as important as the protein tertiary structure prediction. A highly efficient quality assessment of predicted model structures directs further research on function. Here we present a new server ProTSAV, capable of evaluating predicted model structures based on some popular online servers and(More)
