The protein targeting factor Get3 functions as ATP-independent chaperone under oxidative stress conditions.
Exposure of cells to reactive oxygen species (ROS) causes a rapid and significant drop in intracellular ATP levels. This energy depletion negatively affects ATP-dependent chaperone systems, makingExpand

Visualization of arrestin recruitment by a G Protein-Coupled Receptor
G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are critically regulated by β-arrestins, which not only desensitize G-protein signalling but also initiate a G-protein-independent wave of signalling. A recentExpand

The Ginger-shaped Asteroid 4179 Toutatis: New Observations from a Successful Flyby of Chang'e-2
On 13 December 2012, Chang'e-2 conducted a successful flyby of the near-Earth asteroid 4179 Toutatis at a closest distance of 770 ± 120 meters from the asteroid's surface. The highest-resolutionExpand

A physics-based model to predict micro-pitting lives of lubricated point contacts
This paper proposes a physics-based model to predict the onset of micro-pit formation for lubricated point contacts of rough surfaces. A mixed elastohydrodynamic lubrication model is employed toExpand

Local Poisson SPH For Viscous Incompressible Fluids
Enforcing fluid incompressibility is one of the time‐consuming aspects in SPH. In this paper, we present a local Poisson SPH (LPSPH) method to solve incompressibility for particle based fluidExpand

Kinetics of Atmospheric Freeze-drying of Apple
We present investigations of the effect of Atmospheric Freeze-Drying kinetics on the quality (dehydration rate, shrinkage, color, and antioxidant properties) of apple cubes. The experimental data areExpand

A model to predict scuffing failures of a ball-on-disk contact
Abstract This study aims at establishing the criterion for scuffing to occur. A point contact thermal elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) model is combined with a heat transfer model to predict theExpand
