Simulations unravel outer membrane transport mechanism

...ppening inside or outside.” U. of I. researchers simulated the interaction of part of the inner membrane protein TonB (shown in red) and the luminal domain (in green and dark blue) of the outer membrane transporter. The yellow sphere represents the point on the TonB protein at which the force was applied. To...

In a map of a simulated open-office plan, the tool graphically displays real-time calculations of the "Speech Privacy Index," a quantitative measure of how much speech can be heard in a given environment. The calculator takes into account such variables as partition type, ...

Brain's reward circuit activity ebbs and flows with a woman's hormonal cycle

...n and 13 men while they performed a task involving simulated slot machines. The women were scanned before and after ovulation. The fMRI pictures showed that when the women were anticipating a reward, they activated the amygdala and a cortex area behind the eyes that regulates emotion and reward-related pla...

Scientists uncover link between ocean's chemical processes and microscopic floating plants

...ted a month-long field experiment. The researchers simulated present-day carbon dioxide concentrations and ocean acidity, and carbon dioxide levels expected at the end of this century and the middle of the next one.

Scientists find method to pick noncompetitive animals, improve production

... of various colorful fish species interacting in a simulated ecosystem at the Monterey, Calif., aquarium. "There is an inherited part of the associations among animals that has profound effects on performance," Muir said. "It's called competition. Animals compete for food, space, territory and mates." In...

The authors simulated the potential damage to 9 theoretical stands of pine trees, looking at how each would react to hurricane wind speeds, to make recommendations for different situations. "Our simple simulation of stem breakage potential suggests that stand spacing ...

RNA map provides first comprehensive understanding of alternative splicing

This kind of basic work can throw light on health problems like developmental disorders, on questions in evolutionary biology, and on new biotech possibilities including tissue engineering....

Therapeutic role found for carbon monoxide

...uestion, coauthor Beek Yoke Chin, PhD, developed a simulated blood vessel by growing the cells on a semi-permeable membrane, which enabled the two cell types to "communicate" with one another through pores. And that, says Otterbein, was when the scientists observed that in this "co-culture" setting, CO was abl...

He could change the channel and adjust the volume on a television, even while conversing. He was ultimately able ...

Virus has 'catastrophic' affect on red squirrels, research shows

...in Norfolk in the last ten years). The team then simulated various management strategies using a computer model. Although results suggested that a continuous cull of more than 60 per cent of greys would be needed to save red squirrels on a landscape scale, researchers reasoned this approach would be costly,...
