Improved measurements of the neutrino mixing angle theta(13) with the Double Chooz detector
The Double Chooz experiment presents improved measurements of the neutrino mixing angle theta(13) using the data collected in 467.90 live days from a detector positioned at an average distance of 1050m from two reactor ...
Measurement of time-dependent CP violation in B 0 → η′K 0 decays
We present a measurement of the time-dependent CP violation parameters in B0 -> eta'K-0 decays. The measurement is based on the full data sample containing 772 x 10(6) B (B) over bar pairs collected at the Upsilon(4S) ...
Combining dark matter detectors and electron-capture sources to hunt for new physics in the neutrino sector
In this letter we point out the possibility to study new physics in the neutrino sector using dark matter detectors based on liquid xenon. These are characterized by very good spatial resolution and extremely low thresholds ...
Searching for sterile neutrinos at the ESSνSB
The ESS nu SB project is a proposed neutrino oscillation experiment based on the European Spallation Source with the search for leptonic CP violation as its main aim. In this letter we show that a near detector at around ...

GFP-Based Fluorescence Assay for CAG Repeat Instability in Cultured Human Cells
Trinucleotide repeats can be highly unstable, mutating far more frequently than point mutations. Repeats typically mutate by addition or loss of units of the repeat. CAG repeat expansions in humans trigger neurological ...
Ligand Binding Reveals a Role for Heme in Translationally-Controlled Tumor Protein Dimerization
The translationally-controlled tumor protein (TCTP) is a highly conserved, ubiquitously expressed, abundant protein that is broadly distributed among eukaryotes. Its biological function spans numerous cellular processes ...
Peer Mediated Theatrical Engagement for Improving Reciprocal Social Interaction in Autism Spectrum Disorder
(Frontiers Media SA, 2014-10-10)
The hallmark characteristic of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is poor reciprocal social communication. Interventions designed to improve this core deficit are critically needed. Social skills interventions such as direct ...
Experimental Food Restriction Reveals Individual Differences in Corticosterone Reaction Norms with No Oxidative Costs
Highly plastic endocrine traits are thought to play a central role in allowing organisms to respond rapidly to environmental change. Yet, not all individuals display the same degree of plasticity in these traits, and the ...
Transport and Metabolism Behavior of Brazilein during Its Entrance into Neural Cells
Brazilein, a natural small molecule, shows a variety of pharmacological activities, especially on nervous system and immune system. As a potential multifunctional drug, we studied the distribution and the transport behavior ...
