The study of twin primes gives rise to several famously difficult problems in number theory--in fact, we still cannot definitively say whether there are infinitely many twin primes. In this work, we consider a related problem, namely: What is the...
This research extends previous findings that the behavior of individuals high as compared to low in Private Self-consciousness, an individual difference in self-awareness, is more influenced by subtle primes. Manipulations of self-awareness were...
The irreversible destruction of the tissues that comprise synovial joints is the hallmark of both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. In both diseases, inflammatory cytokines, such as interleukin-1β, stimulate the production of matrix...
In the late 1960s, Ihara began work that led to the Ihara zeta function, a zeta function which is defined on a finite graph. This function is an interesting graph invariant which gives information on expansion properties of the graph. It also...
Chromatin -- Structure. DNA -- Methylation. Globin genes -- Expression. Adenosine triphosphatase. Proteins -- Chemical modification.
Epigenetic regulation of gene expression is a developing field of study with many potential therapeutic applications. Chromatin remodeling is necessary for proper mammalian development, and misregulation of this process is associated with many...
The ability to forecast the weather of the geospace environment depends critically on the ability to accurately model the dynamics of the coupled magnetosphere-ionosphere (MI) system. The MI interaction involves a set of electrodynamic and plasma...
Pharmacologic induction of fetal hemoglobin (HbF) has proven therapeutic potential for ß-hemoglobinopathy patients. Increased HbF reduces disease severity by decreasing sickling in sickle cell disease and reducing α-chain imbalance in...
Metal ions confer structural stability and reactivity to a large number of proteins that use the amino acids histidine (His) and cysteine (Cys) to form stable metal-ligand complexes. The stability of metal-His and metal-Cys interactions and their...
Increased fetal hemoglobin (HbF) expression is beneficial for [beta]-hemoglobinopathy patients; however, most inducing agents do not possess the ideal combination of efficacy, safety and availability. Better understanding the mechanisms involved in...
The cortical cytoskeleton mediates a range of cellular activities such as endocytosis, cell motility, and the maintenance of cell rigidity. In yeast cells, prominent cortical structures called eisosomes generate specialized domains termed MCCs to...
Let K be the function field over a finite field of odd order, and let H be a definite quaternion algebra over K. If Α is an order of level M in H , we define theta series for each ideal I of Α using the reduced norm on H. Using harmonic analysis...
We begin with a presentation of the current state of Poljak and Turzik's conjecture that a matroid is sticky if and only if it is modular as described in [5] and [1]. We show that all graphic, cographic, and regular matroids must satisfy the...
