Spatial and temporal distributions of aerosol concentrations and depositions in Asia during the year 2010.
Seoul, South Korea. In Sci Total Environ, Feb 2016
Aerosol Modeling System (AMS) that is consisted of the Asian Dust Aerosol Model2 (ADAM2) and the Community Multi-scale Air Quality (CMAQ) modeling system has been employed to document the spatial distributions of the monthly and the annual averaged concentration of both the Asian dust (AD) aerosol and the anthropogenic aerosol (AA), and their total depositions in the Asian region for the year 2010.
[Molecular feactures of fertilization: gamete binding and fusion].
Murcia, Spain. In Rev Invest Clin, 2008
Among the molecules that participate on binding and fusion of gametes are included disintegrins on the sperm (ADAM1 and ADAM2) which interact with integrins (alpha6/beta-1, CD9, GPI-protein) in the egg plasma membrane, while cysteine-rich secretory proteins (CRISP) and the proteins named as Izumo participate in the fusion.
Sperm-egg interaction and gene manipulated animals.
Suita, Japan. In Soc Reprod Fertil Suppl, 2006
It is intriguing that the disruption of a number of genes, e.g., Clgn, Ace, Adamla, Adam2 and Adam3 results in a similar sperm phenotype, i.e., failure of sperm to bind to the zona pellucida (ZP).
A metalloprotease-disintegrin participating in myoblast fusion.
Tokyo, Japan. In Nature, 1995
Here we report the identification of three new, myoblast-expressed gene products, meltrin-alpha, beta and gamma, with homology to both viper haemorrhagic factors and fertilin (PH-30), a membrane protein involved in egg-sperm fusion.
