Linac coherent light source (LCLS) conceptual design report
The Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, in collaboration with Argonne National Laboratory, Brookhaven National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, andExpand
The tethering of chromatin to the nuclear envelope supports nuclear mechanics
It is suggested that modulating chromatin flow can define both transient and long-lived changes in nuclear shape that are biologically important and may be altered in disease. Expand
A new folding paradigm for repeat proteins.
For the first time for any protein, a theoretical model predicts the folding/unfolding transition midpoint and the width of the transition. Expand
Structure and stability of designed TPR protein superhelices: unusual crystal packing and implications for natural TPR proteins.
The structure and stability of designed tetratricopeptide-repeat (TPR) proteins is described and the thermodynamic behavior of CTPR8 and CTPR20 can be predicted from the behavior of other TPRs in this series using an Ising model-based analysis. Expand
Structure, function, and self-assembly of single network gyroid (I4132) photonic crystals in butterfly wing scales
3D photonic nanostructures of five butterfly species from two families are characterized to offer a convenient template for producing optical devices based on biomimicry or direct dielectric infiltration. Expand
Rapid compaction during RNA folding
Small angle x-ray scattering and computer simulations with a coarse-grained model indicate that the RNA forms a nonspecifically collapsed intermediate and then searches for its tertiary contacts within a highly restricted subset of conformational space. Expand
Observation of speckle by diffraction with coherent X-rays
REFLECTED light from a coherent light source such as a laser shows a graininess known as speckle. In general, a speckle pattern is produced whenever randomly distributed regions of a materialExpand
Structure and optical function of amorphous photonic nanostructures from avian feather barbs: a comparative small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) analysis of 230 bird species
The results further support the hypothesis that colour-producing protein and air nanostructures in feather barbs are probably self-assembled by arrested phase separation of polymerizing β-keratin from the cytoplasm of medullary cells. Expand
Evolution of particle-scale dynamics in an aging clay suspension.
The decrease in the range of this motion and an increase in suspension conductivity with increasing t(a) indicate a growth in interparticle repulsion as the mechanism for internal stress development implied by models that describe the dynamics in disordered elastic media in terms of strain from random, local structural rearrangements. Expand
Surface dynamics of polymer films.
Good agreement is found between the measured surface dynamics and the theory of overdamped thermal capillary waves on thin films in the dynamics of supported polymer films. Expand
