23. Budding yeast cells detect a single impaired chromosome , very likely because of improper spindle attachment [M. 30. The hazards caused by pairing and recombination are unique to the first meiotic division, and the response , an exposed kinetochore, is also unique to that division. In the second meiotic division, the ki-netochores are arranged just as(More)
We have identified independently folding units, so called "foldons", from non-homologous proteins representing different folds. We applied simple statistical arguments in order to estimate the size of the foldon universe required to construct all foldable proteins. Various alignment procedures yield about 2600 foldons in the natural protein universe but(More)
Iridium oxide electrodeposited through a self-assembled colloidal template has an inverse opal structure. Monolayers present long range hexagonal arrangements of hemispherical nanocavities while multilayers present 3D honeycomb structures with spherical voids. The films are amorphous, 10 have several electroactive redox states and are electrochromic. The(More)
The Large Observatory For x-ray Timing (LOFT) was studied within ESA M3 Cosmic Vision framework and participated in the final downselection for a launch slot in 2022-2024. Thanks to the unprecedented combination of effective area and spectral resolution of its main instrument, LOFT will study the behaviour of matter under extreme conditions, such as the(More)
The MIT Faculty has made this article openly available. Please share how this access benefits you. Your story matters. Abstract ORIGIN is a proposal for the M3 mission call of ESA aimed at the study of metal creation from the epoch of cosmic dawn. Using high-spectral resolution in the soft X-ray band, ORIGIN will be able to identify the physical conditions(More)
