The Pliocene and Quaternary fluvial archives of the Rhine system
Abstract The River Rhine is one of the few major fluvial systems that connect the areas of the Alpine glaciers and Scandinavian ice sheet and so provides a key for correlating the two glacial areasExpand

Luminescence chronology of Upper Pleistocene and Holocene aeolianites from Netanya South — Sharon Coastal Plain, Israel☆
Abstract The coastal cliff at Netanya South in the Sharon Coastal Plain of Israel was investigated with luminescence dating methods. Twenty-four samples were taken from the exposed aeolianites andExpand

The Ca2+-activated K+ current of human sperm is mediated by Slo3
Sperm are equipped with a unique set of ion channels that orchestrate fertilization. In mouse sperm, the principal K+ current (IKSper) is carried by the Slo3 channel, which sets the membraneExpand

Chronostratigraphy of aeolianites from the Sharon Coastal Plain of Israel
Abstract The Sharon Coastal Plain in Israel is composed mainly of sand dune fields and aeolianite ridges. Three major sand accumulation periods are documented in the terrestrial record along theExpand

The CatSper channel controls chemosensation in sea urchin sperm
Sperm guidance is controlled by chemical and physical cues. In many species, Ca2+ bursts in the flagellum govern navigation to the egg. In Arbacia punctulata, a model system of sperm chemotaxis, aExpand

Subunits act independently in a cyclic nucleotide‐activated K+ channel
Ion channels gated by cyclic nucleotides have crucial roles in neuronal excitability and signal transduction of sensory neurons. Here, we studied ligand binding of a cyclic nucleotide‐activated K+Expand

Post‐translational cleavage of Hv1 in human sperm tunes pH‐ and voltage‐dependent gating
In human sperm, proton flux across the membrane is controlled by the voltage‐gated proton channel Hv1. We show that sperm harbour both Hv1 and an N‐terminally cleaved isoform termed Hv1Sper. TheExpand

Chronology of Pleistocene sedimentary cycles in the Carmel Coastal Plain of Israel
Abstract The Eastern Mediterranean Coastal Plain of Israel is composed mainly of loam and sand and gravel of Pleistocene to Holocene age, supplemented by an Upper Pleistocene beach rock horizon,Expand

The Pliocene and Quaternary sedimentary and fluvial history in the Upper Rhine Graben based on heavy mineral analyses
The Pliocene and Quaternary unconsolidated sediments of the Upper Rhine Graben (URG) were petrographically analysed in numerous high quality drill cores. The heavy mineral composition of the GrabenExpand

The confluence area of Rhine, Meuse, and Belgian rivers: Late Pliocene and Early Pleistocene fluvial history of the northern Lower Rhine Embayment
The fluvial history of the northern Lower Rhine Embayment shows interplay of three main river systems: Rhine, Meuse and smaller rivers draining the central and northern part of Belgium. The PlioceneExpand
