51 Adler, Frederick R.Aggregation and stability in parasite-host modelsThis paper generalizes the two-dimensional approximation of models of macroparasites on homogeneous populations developed by Anderson & May (1978), focusing on how the dispersion (the variance to mean ratio) of the equilibrium distribution of parasites on hosts is related to the stability of the equ...Aggregation; Stability; Host-parasite models1992-04
52 Lupton, John MarkAir-induced fluorescence bursts from single semiconductor nanocrystalsWe observe a dramatic enhancement of the fluorescence intensity from single core/shell CdSe/ZnS nanocrystals upon sudden exposure to air from an evacuated surrounding. Both the number of particles contributing to emission increases as well as the average emission intensity from a single particle, le...CdSe; ZnS; Air-induced; Fluorescence bursts2004

54 Wu, Yong-ShiAlgebraic and geometric aspects of generalized quantum dynamicsWe briefly discuss some algebraic and geometric aspects of the generalized Poisson bracket and noncommutative phase space for generalized quantum dynamics, which are analogous to properties of the classical Poisson bracket and ordinary symplectic structure.Quantum dynamics; Jacobi identity1994-06
55 Wu, Yong-ShiAlgebraic solution for a two-level atom in radiation fields and the Freeman resonancesUsing techniques of complex analysis in an algebraic approach, we solve the wave equation for a two-level atom interacting with a monochromatic light field exactly. A closed-form expression for the quasienergies is obtained, which shows that the Bloch-Siegert shift is always finite, regardless of ...Bloch-Siegert shift; Freeman resonances; Quasienergies2006-02

57 Coley, Phyllis D.; Lokvam, John; Kursar, Thomas A.Allelochemic function for a primary metabolite: the case of L-tyrosine hyper-production in Inga umbellifera (Fabaceae)Young leaves of tropical forest trees experience far higher herbivory pressure than mature leaves of the same species. Selection on young leaves has led to diverse forms of defense chemical expression. Though most allelochemicals are secondary metabolites, allelochemic function for a primary metabol...5-amino-4-hydroxy-pentanoic acid; Panama; Barro Colorado Island; Fabaceae; Inga umbellifera; Primary metabolite; Heliothis virescens2006

59 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

61 Olivera, Baldomero M.Alternative splicing in the pore-forming region of shaker potassium channelsWe have cloned cDNAs for the shaker potassium channel gene from the spiny lobster Panulirus interruptus. As previously found in Drosophila, there is alternative splicing at the 59 and 39 ends of the coding region. However, in Panulirus shaker, alternative splicing also occurs within the pore-forming...Panulirus interruptus; Conotoxins; Shaker; Stomatogastric ganglion; Pore-forming region; Alternative splicing1997
62 Coffin, Cheryl M.; Capecchi, Mario R.Alveolar rhabdomyosarcomas in conditional Pax3:Fkhr mice: cooperativity of Ink4a/ARF and Trp53 loss of function.Alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma is an aggressive childhood muscle cancer for which outcomes are poor when the disease is advanced. Although well-developed mouse models exist for embryonal and pleomorphic rhabdomyosarcomas, neither a spontaneous nor a transgenic mouse model of alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma has...Cell Differentiation; Forkhead Transcription Factors; Myogenic Regulatory Factors2004-11-01
63 Mattis, Daniel C.; Sutherland, BillAmbiguities with the relativistic δ-function potentialIn many cases of physical interest, the 6-function potential is a very convenient approximation to more structured, and more difficult, short-ranged potentials. In relativistic theories, its use is often mandated because only a mathematical point has a relativistically invariant shape. Neverthele...Delta function; Energy states1981-09
64 Olivera, Baldomero M.Aminoglycoside effects on voltage-sensitive calcium channels and neurotoxicityTo the Editor: Since ototoxicity and neuromuscular toxicity of aminoglycoside antibiotics are reversed by calcium, 1,2 and presynaptic events appear to be involved in aminoglycoside-induced neuromuscular blockade, 3,4 we suspected a role for voltage-sensitive calcium channels in aminoglycoside neuro...Conotoxins1987

71 Clayton, Dale H.An experimental test of the effects of behavioral and immunological defenses against vectors: do they interact to protect birds from blood parasites?Background: Blood-feeding arthropods can harm their hosts in many ways, such as through direct tissue damage and anemia, but also by distracting hosts from foraging or watching for predators. Blood-borne pathogens transmitted by arthropods can further harm the host. Thus, effective behavioral and im...2014-01-01
