3 Olivera, Baldomero M.; McIntosh, J. Michael; Hillyard, David R.A-superfamily of conotoxins: structural and functional divergenceThe generation of functional novelty in proteins encoded by a gene superfamily is seldom well documented. In this report, we define the A-conotoxin superfamily, which is widely expressed in venoms of the predatory cone snails (Conus), and show how gene products that diverge considerably in stru...Conotoxins; A-superfamily conotoxin2004-02-03
4 Shapiro, Michael D.Adaptive evolution of pelvic reduction in sticklebacks by recurrent deletion of a Pitx1 enhancerThe molecular mechanisms underlying major phenotypic changes that have evolved repeatedly in nature are generally unknown. Pelvic loss in different natural populations of threespine stickleback fish has occurred by regulatory mutations deleting a tissue-specific enhancer of the Pituitary homeobox t...Adaptive evolution; Pelvic reduction; Pituitary homeobox transcription factor 1; Pitx1; Gasterosteus aculeatus2010-01-14
5 Mishchenko, EugeneOptical conductivity of a two-dimensional electron liquid with spin-orbit interactionThe interplay of electron-electron interactions and spin-orbit coupling leads to a new contribution to the homogeneous optical conductivity of the electron liquid. The latter is known to be insensitive to many-body effects for a conventional electron system with parabolic dispersion. The parabolic...Optical conductivity; Electron liquid; Spin-orbit coupling2006-08
6 Miller, Joel StevenPhotoelectron spectra of transition-metal carbonyl complexes: comparison with the spectra of adsorbed COThe uv and x-ray photoelectron spectra of carbon monoxide and transition-metal (TM) carbonyl complexes have been studied. The systematic changes in these spectra were recorded as the number of metal atoms in the complexes was increased and as the bonding configuration of the CO changed. The observat...TM carbonyl complexes; electron binding energies; metal atoms1978
7 Capecchi, Mario R.Fundamental cellular processes do not require vertebrate-specific sequences within the TATA-binding protein.The 180-amino acid core of the TATA-binding protein (TBPcore) is conserved from Archae bacteria to man. Vertebrate TBPs contain, in addition, a large and highly conserved N-terminal region that is not found in other phyla. We have generated a line of mice in which the tbp allele is replaced with a v...Mice, Knockout; Cells, Cultured; Fibroblasts; Embryo2003-02-21
8 Vardeny, Zeev ValentinePicosecond optical time-of-flight studies of carrier transport in α-Si:H/α-SiNx:H multilayersWe report time-of-flight experiments in the time range from 0.2 psec to 1.8 nsec in 0-Si:H-a-SiNx:H multilayer structures using a purely optical technique. The transport mechanism of photoexcited carriers is shown to be dispersive and its characteristic parameters are determined in the temperature r...Time-of-flight; Amorphous silicon; Carrier transport; Photoexcited carriers1987-09
9 Capecchi, Mario R.Hox group 3 paralogous genes act synergistically in the formation of somitic and neural crest-derived structures.Hox genes encode transcription factors that are used to regionalize the mammalian embryo. Analysis of mice carrying targeted mutations in individual and multiple Hox genes is beginning to reveal a complex network of interactions among these closely related genes which is responsible for directing th...Abnormalities, Multiple; Gene Targeting; Glossopharyngeal Nerve; Mice, Knockout; Morphogenesis1997-12-15
10 Linton, Matthew J.Magnitude and mechanisms of disequilibrium between predawn plant and soil water potentialsPredawn plant water potential (Uw, measured with leaf psychrometers) and surrogate measurements made with the pressure chamber (termed Upc here) are used to infer comparative ecological performance, based on the expectation that these plant potentials reflect the wettest soil Uw accessed by roots. T...Roots; Transpiration; Solutes2003
11 Mattis, Daniel C.Theory of paramagnetic impurities in semiconductorsIn this paper, a model of a paramagnetic impurity in a semiconductor (or of an F' center in an alkali halide) is proposed. It is an exactly soluble form of the quantum-mechanical 3-body problem. Specifically, we deal with 2 interacting particles in any number of dimensions in an attractive external ...Paramagnetic impurities; Eigenstates1966
12 Mishchenko, EugeneFrequency dependence of the photonic noise spectrum in an absorbing or amplifying diffusive mediumA theory is presented for the frequency dependence of the power spectrum of photon current fluctuations originating from a disordered medium. Both the cases of an absorbing medium ("grey body") and of an amplifying medium ("random laser") are considered in a waveguide geometry. The semiclassical ap...Random laser; Noise power spectrum; Frequency dependence; Waveguide geometry2001-01
13 Adler, Frederick R.Alternating host cell tropism shapes the persistence, evolution and coexistence of Epstein-Barr virus infections in humanEpstein-Barr virus (EBV) infects and can persist in a majority of people worldwide. Within an infected host, EBV targets two major cell types, B cells and epithelial cells, and viruses emerging from one cell type preferentially infect the other. We use mathematical models to understand why EBV infec...2011
14 Gerton, JordanSinglet s-wave scattering lengths of 6Li and 7LiPhotoassociation of ultracold lithium atoms into bound vibrational levels of the A 1Σu+ excited state is used to probe the X1Σg+ ground-state interaction potential of 6Li2 and 7Li2 . It had been predicted that the s-wave photoassociation signal strength would pass through a minimum as a function...1996-06
15 Gerton, JordanTip-enhanced fluorescence microscopy at 10 nanometer resolutionWe demonstrate unambiguously that the field enhancement near the apex of a laser-illuminated silicon tip decays according to a power law that is moderated by a single parameter characterizing the tip sharpness. Oscillating the probe in intermittent contact with a semiconductor nanocrystal strongly...2004-10
16 Olivera, Baldomero M.; Gray, William RobertContryphan is a D-tryptophan-containing Conus peptideIn this report, we document for the first time the occurrence of D-tryptophan in a normally translated polypeptide, contryphan. The peptide, isolated from the venom of the fish-hunting marine snail Conus radiatus, produces the "stiff-tail" syndrome in mice.Conotoxins; Contryphan; D-tryptophan; Conus peptides; Conus radiatus; Stiff-tail syndrome1996
17 Lupton, John MarkLinewidth-limited energy transfer in single conjugated polymer moleculesUsing low temperature single molecule spectroscopy on rigid-rod conjugated polymers we are able to identify homogeneously broadened, strongly polarized emission from individual chromophore units on a single chain.

22 Capecchi, Mario R.Hox genes and mammalian developmentWe have examined the interactions of Hox genes in forming a cervical vertebrae, hindbrain, and limbs. In each case, it is apparent that individual Hox genes are performing individual functions but that more profound roles are apparent when they act in combination with others Hox genes. The observed ...Drosophila; Gene Expression Regulation, Developmental; Homozygote1997
23 Gondolo, PaoloDark matter axions revisitedWe study for what specific values of the theoretical parameters the axion can form the totality of cold dark matter.
