Nowadays it is possible to unravel complex information at all levels of cellular organization by obtaining multi-dimensional image information. At the macromolecular level, three-dimensional (3D) electron microscopy, together with other techniques, is able to reach resolutions at the nanometer or subnanometer level. The information is delivered in the form(More)
Knowledge of the dynamic features of the processes driven by malaria parasites in the spleen is lacking. To gain insight into the function and structure of the spleen in malaria, we have implemented intravital microscopy and magnetic resonance imaging of the mouse spleen in experimental infections with non-lethal (17X) and lethal (17XL) Plasmodium yoelii(More)
The crystal structure of a 15 amino acid synthetic peptide, corresponding to the sequence of the major antigenic site A (G-H loop of VP1) from a multiple variant of foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV), has been determined at 2.3 A resolution. The variant peptide includes four amino acid substitutions in the loop relative to the previously studied peptide(More)
The aim of this work is to determine plausible values for the rate constants of kinetic models representing water transport through narrow pores. We present here the results of molecular dynamics simulations of the movement of water molecules through a single-site hydrophilic pore. The system consists of a rectangular box of water molecules, some of which(More)
