Eukaryotic DNA polymerase δ (pol δ) plays a crucial role in chromosomal DNA replication and various DNA repair processes. It is thought to consist of p125, p66 (p68), p50 and p12 subunits. However, rigorous isolation of mammalian pol δ from natural sources has usually yielded two-subunit preparations containing only p125 and p50 polypeptides. While(More)
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive method to modulate cortical excitability in humans. Here, we examined the effects of anodal tDCS on suprahyoid motor evoked potentials (MEP) when applied over the hemisphere with stronger and weaker suprahyoid/submental projections, respectively, while study participants performed a swallowing(More)
The availability and reliability of large critical infrastructures depend on decisions made by hundreds or thousands of interdependent entities and, by extension, on the information that the entities exchange with each other. In the electric power grid, the widespread deployment of devices that measure and report readings many times per second offers new(More)
Brominated organic pollutants are considered of great concern for their adverse effect on human health and the environment, so an increasing number of such compounds are being classified as persistent organic pollutants (POPs). Mechanochemical destruction is a promising technology for POPs safe disposal because it can achieve their complete carbonization by(More)
We introduce and formalize the notion of <i>group-oriented proofs of storage</i> (GPoS). In GPoS, each file owner, after being authorized as a member by a group manager, can outsource files to a group storage account maintained by an untrusted party, for example, a cloud storage server, while anyone can efficiently verify the integrity of the remotely(More)
