Ram pressure stripping (RPS) by the intracluster medium is one of the most advocated mechanisms that affect the properties of cluster galaxies. A recent study based on a small sample has found that many galaxies showing strong signatures of RPS also possess an active galactic nucleus (AGN), suggesting a possible correlation between the two phenomena. This result has not been confirmed by a subsequent study. Building upon previous findings, here we combine MUSE observations conducted within the… 
Ram pressure stripping in high-density environments
Galaxies living in rich environments are suffering different perturbations able to drastically affect their evolution. Among these, ram pressure stripping, i.e. the pressure exerted by the hot and
Post-starburst Galaxies in the Centers of Intermediate-redshift Clusters
We present results from MUSE spatially resolved spectroscopy of 21 post-starburst galaxies in the centers of eight clusters from z ∼ 0.3 to z ∼ 0.4. We measure spatially resolved star formation


A Link between Ram Pressure Stripping and Active Galactic Nuclei
The dense environment of a galaxy cluster can radically transform the content of in-falling galaxies. Recent observations have found a significant population of active galactic nuclei (AGN) within
Evidence for ram-pressure stripping in a cluster of galaxies at z = 0.7
Multi-Unit Spectroscopic Explorer (MUSE) observations of the cluster of galaxies CGr32 (M200 ≃ 2 × 1014 M⊙) at z = 0.73 reveal the presence of two massive star-forming galaxies with extended tails of
Ubiquitous ram pressure stripping in the Coma cluster of galaxies
We report the detection of Hα trails behind three new intermediate-mass irregular galaxies in the NW outskirts of the nearby cluster of galaxies Abell 1656 (Coma). Hints that these galaxies possess
The effect of ram pressure on the molecular gas of galaxies: three case studies in the Virgo cluster
We present 12CO (2-1) data of three Virgo spirals - NGC 4330, NGC 4402 and NGC 4522 obtained using the Submillimeter Array. These three galaxies show clear evidence of ram pressure stripping due to
Enhanced Star Formation in Both Disks and Ram-pressure-stripped Tails of GASP Jellyfish Galaxies
Exploiting the data from the GAs Stripping Phenomena in galaxies with MUSE (GASP) program, we compare the integrated star formation rate–mass relation (SFR–M*) relation of 42 cluster galaxies
Jellyfish: the origin and distribution of extreme ram-pressure stripping events in massive galaxy clusters
We investigate the observational signatures and physical origin of ram-pressure stripping (RPS) in 63 massive galaxy clusters at $z=0.3-0.7$, based on images obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope.
Low radio frequency signatures of ram pressure stripping in Virgo spiral NGC 4254
We report the detection of extended low radio frequency continuum emission beyond the optical disc of the spiral galaxy NGC 4254 using the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope. NGC 4254, which has an
GASP. XXI. Star Formation Rates in the Tails of Galaxies Undergoing Ram Pressure Stripping
Using MUSE observations from the GASP survey, we study 54 galaxies undergoing ram pressure stripping (RPS) and spanning a wide range in galaxy mass and host cluster mass. We use this rich sample to
Ram-pressure feeding of supermassive black holes
Analysis of the galactic position and velocity relative to the cluster strongly supports the first hypothesis, and puts forward ram pressure as another possible mechanism for feeding the central supermassive black hole with gas.
Tidal interaction vs. ram pressure stripping effects as seen in X-rays. Hot gas in group and cluster galaxies
The hot intracluster/intragroup medium (ICM/IGM) and a high galaxy density can lead to perturbations of the galactic interstellar medium (ISM) due to ram pressure and/or tidal interaction effects. In
