Type 1 interferons (IFN) protect the host against viruses by engaging a cognate receptor (consisting of IFNAR1/IFNAR2 chains) and inducing downstream signaling and gene expression. However, inflammatory stimuli can trigger IFNAR1 ubiquitination and downregulation thereby attenuating IFN effects in vitro. The significance of this paradoxical regulation is(More)
Exploration of the aquatic microbiota of several circum-neutral (6.0-8.5 pH) mid-temperature (55-85°C) springs revealed rich diversities of phylogenetic relatives of mesophilic bacteria, which surpassed the diversity of the truly-thermophilic taxa. To gain insight into the potentially-thermophilic adaptations of the phylogenetic relatives of Gram-negative(More)
A simple modification of the Rosenzweig-MacArthur predator (zooplankton)-prey (phytoplankton) model with the interference of the predators by adding the effect of nanoparticles is proposed and analyzed. It is assumed that the effect of these particles has a potential to reduce the maximum physiological per-capita growth rate of the prey. The dynamics of(More)
To elucidate how geothermal irregularities affect the sustainability of high-temperature microbiomes we studied the synecological dynamics of a geothermal microbial mat community (GMMC) vis-à-vis fluctuations in its environment. Spatiotemporally-discrete editions of a photosynthetic GMMC colonizing the travertine mound of a circum-neutral hot spring cluster(More)
We propose a two layer neural network for computation of an approximate convex-hull of a set of points or a set of circles/ellipses of different sizes. The algorithm is based on a very elegant concept - shrinking of a rubber band surrounding the set of planar objects. Logically, a set of neurons is placed on a circle (rubber band) surrounding the objects.(More)
