To study how different domains of the muscle-specific intermediate filament protein, desmin, contribute to its polymerization, two of its CNBr fragments were examined as to their oligomeric structure under assembly conditions. One of these, D88, covers residues 1-88 and represents almost the entire headpiece; the other, D109, covers residues 145-254, and(More)
D88 and D109, two cyanogen bromide fragments of desmin which essentially correspond to the amino terminal headpiece domain and Helix 1B, respectively, bind to intact desmin with different topological specificities. D88, the headpiece domain fragment, binds only to the headpiece of intact desmin. In contrast, D109, which encompasses Helix 1B and most of the(More)
Inspired by the quorum sensing process, we propose and analyze a distributed density estimation scheme for molecular nanonetworks, based on synchronous transmission of the network nodes and sensing of the received molecular concentration. We show that when infinite space transmission is employed, a linear static parametric model can be obtained to be used(More)
A number of probabilistic flooding schemes have been recently considered in VANETs to address problems of information dissemination in safety applications. The design approach has so far been simulative, a method which does not guarantee that the derived protocols will work when the simulation settings are violated in practice. In this paper, motivated by(More)
