Toward epidemic thresholds on temporal networks: a review and open questions
Abstract Epidemiological contact network models have emerged as an important tool in understanding and predicting spread of infectious disease, due to their capacity to engage individual heterogeneity that ...
Structure of the GAT domain of the endosomal adapter protein Tom1
Cellular homeostasis requires correct delivery of cell-surface receptor proteins (cargo) to their target subcellular compartments. The adapter proteins Tom1 and Tollip are involved in sorting of ubiquitinated cargo in ...
Double helical conformation and extreme rigidity in a rodlike polyelectrolyte
(Nature Publishing Group, 2019-02-18)
The ubiquitous biomacromolecule DNA has an axial rigidity persistence length of ~50 nm, driven by its elegant double helical structure. While double and multiple helix structures appear widely in nature, only rarely are ...
Assessing the Methodology for Testing Body Armor
Composition Systematics in the Exoskeleton of the American Lobster, Homarus americanus and Implications for Malacostraca
Studies of biominerals from the exoskeletons of lobsters and other crustaceans report chemical heterogeneities across disparate body parts that have prevented the development of composition-based environmental proxy models. ...
