Phosphorylation of Pak1 by the p35/Cdk5 Kinase Affects Neuronal Morphology
The small GTPase Rac and its effectors, the Pak1 and p35/Cdk5 kinases, have been assigned important roles in regulating cytoskeletal dynamics in neurons. Our previous work revealed that the neuronal p35/Cdk5 kinase associates ...
One-year observations of particle lidar ratio over the tropical Indian Ocean with Raman lidar
Observations of the extinction-to-backscatter ratio (lidar ratio) of South and Southeast Asian aerosol particles are presented for the wavelength of 532 nm. Raman lidar measurements were performed in the Maldives (4.1 ...
Dramatic developmental changes in larval knockdown response enhance genetic sexing based on DDT resistance in Anopheles stephensi (Diptera: Culicidae)
Genetic sexing systems based on a conditional lethal require good discrimination between the different phenotypes. DDT resistance in the early instars of Anopheles stephensi Liston is not a good candidate when based on ...
Proton capture cross section of Sr isotopes and their importance for nucleosynthesis of proton-rich nuclides
The (p,gamma) cross sections of three stable Sr isotopes haven been measured in the astrophysically relevant energy range. These reactions are important for the p process in stellar nucleosynthesis and, in addition, the ...
Food, Social Policy and the Environment : Towards a New Model
Food policy is high on the public policy agenda, but still suffers from a lack of overview and integration. The paper reviews examples of policy limitations where tighter and more explicit links could usefully be made ...
HS 0705 6700: A new eclipsing sdB binary
Mo-92(alpha,alpha)Mo-92 scattering, the Mo-92-alpha optical potential, and the Ru-96(gamma,alpha)Mo-92 reaction rate at astrophysically relevant energies
The elastic scattering cross section of (MO)-M-92(alpha,alpha)Mo-92 has been measured at energies of E-c.m. approximate to 13, 16, and 19 MeV in a wide angular range. The real and imaginary parts of the optical potential ...
'In and Out of The Whirlpool of War'
Cherry Kearton filmed a number of newsreels about the First World War, but only 4 survive in the BFI National Film and Television Archive. Based on extensive research, this article offers the first analysis of his surviving ...
Reliability of astrophysical jet simulations in 2D. On inter-code reliability and numerical convergence
In the present paper, we examine the convergence behavior and inter-code reliability of astrophysical jet simulations in axial symmetry. We consider both pure hydrodynamic jets and jets with a dynamically significant ...
