The tropomyosin I(TmI) gene of Drosophila melanogaster encodes two isoforms of tropomyosin. The Ifm-TmI isoform is expressed only in indirect flight and jump muscles; the Scm-TmI isoform is found in other muscles of the larva and adult. The level of Ifm-TmI is severely reduced in the flightless mutant Ifm(3)3, which also is unable to jump. To explore the(More)
Context. Observations of the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect (SZE) from galaxy clusters are emerging as a powerful tool in cosmology. Besides large cluster surveys, resolved SZE images of individual clusters can shed light on the physics of the intra-cluster medium (ICM) and allow accurate measurements of the cluster gas and total masses. Aims. We used the(More)
The fate of notochord cells during disc development and aging is still a subject of debate. Cells with the typical notochordal morphology disappear from the disc within the first decade of life. However, the pure morphologic differentiation of notochordal from non-notochordal disc cells can be difficult, prompting the use of cellular markers. Previous(More)
While there is consensus in the literature that blood vessels are confined to the outer anulus fibrosus of normal adult intervertebral disc, debate continues whether there is a vascular in-growths into inner parts of the intervertebral disc during degeneration. We therefore tested the hypothesis that vascular in-growth is not a distinct feature of disc(More)
APECS is the distributed control system of the new Atacama Pathfinder EXperiment (APEX) telescope located on the Llano de Chajnantor at an altitude of 5107 m in the Atacama desert in northern Chile. APECS is based on Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) software and employs a modern, object-oriented design using the Common Object Request Broker(More)
We present observations of the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect (SZE) in the Bullet cluster (1E 0657–56) using the APEX-SZ instrument at 150 GHz with a resolution of 1. The main results are maps of the SZE in this massive, merging galaxy cluster. The cluster is detected with 23 σ significance within the central 1 radius of the source position. The SZE map has a(More)
Recently we have demonstrated the advantage of solid-phase substrate pools mainly in equilibrium controlled protease-catalysed peptide syntheses. The extension of this approach to protease-catalysed acyl transfer reactions will be presented. The model reaction was systematically investigated according to both the influence of solid phases present in the(More)
The Atacama pathfinder experiment Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (APEX-SZ) instrument is a millimeter-wave cryogenic receiver designed to observe galaxy clusters via the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect from the 12 m APEX telescope on the Atacama plateau in Chile. The receiver contains a focal plane of 280 superconducting transition-edge sensor (TES) bolometers instrumented(More)
