File system bugs that corrupt metadata on disk are insidious. Existing reliability methods, such as checksums, redundancy, or transactional updates, merely ensure that the corruption is reliably preserved. Typical workarounds, based on using backups or repairing the file system, are painfully slow. Worse, the recovery may result in further corruption. We(More)
The structure of complex I from Yarrowia lipolytica was determined by three-dimensional electron microscopy. A random conical data set was collected from deep stain embedded particles. More than 14000 image pairs were analyzed. Through extensive classification combined with three-dimensional reconstruction, it was possible for the first time to show a much(More)
The largest and one of the most complex ATP-dependent allosteric phosphofructokinase (Pfk) has been found in the methylotrophic yeast, Pichia pastoris. The enzyme is a hetero-oligomer ( approximately 1MDa) composed of three distinct subunits (alpha, beta and gamma) with molecular masses of 109, 104 and 41kDa, respectively. While the alpha- and beta-subunits(More)
Phosphofructokinase (Pfk1; EC is the third enzyme of the glycolytic pathway catalyzing the formation of fructose-1,6-bisphosphate from fructose-6-phosphate (F6P) and ATP. Schizosaccharomyces pombe Pfk1 is a homo-octameric enzyme of 800 kDa molecular weight, distinct from its yeast counterparts which are mostly hetero-octameric enzymes composed of(More)
The scale and suddenness of natural disasters render post-disaster relief efforts difficult. For earthquakes in particular, being able to map the distribution of damage quickly and with confidence can help channel appropriate aid to the most-severely impacted regions. Accurate mapping can also aid in determining whether citizens can return safely to their(More)
