China faces a major increase in cardiovascular disease, yet there is limited population-based data on risk factors, particularly in children. Fasting blood samples, anthropometry and blood pressure… Expand
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, making… Expand
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 recent… Expand
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-resolution… Expand
Tillage translocation and tillage erosion in cereal-based production in Manitoba, Canada
Tillage erosion is a potential contributor to the total soil erosion occurring within cultivated fields. No study has been carried out on tillage erosion associated with cereal-based production… Expand
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 to… Expand
Learned reward association improves visual working memory.
Statistical regularities in the natural environment play a central role in adaptive behavior. Among other regularities, reward association is potentially the most prominent factor that influences our… Expand
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 fluid… Expand
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 are… Expand
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 the… Expand
