Vacancy-dependent stability of cubic and wurtzite Ti1-x Al x N.
Vienna, Austria. In Surf Coat Technol, Sep 2015
UNASSIGNED: While it is well-known that supersaturated cubic-structured Ti1-x Al x N can be prepared by physical vapor deposition, the impact of point defects on formation process and cubic to wurtzite transition is largely unexplored.
Is mitochondrial DNA content a potential biomarker of mitochondrial dysfunction?
London, United Kingdom. In Mitochondrion, 2013
However, the data are often conflicting as the current methodology used to measure Mt/N can give false results because of one or more of the following reasons (1) use of mitochondrial primers which co-amplify nuclear pseudogenes (2) use of nuclear genes which are variable and/or duplicated in numerous locations (3) a dilution bias caused by the differing genome sizes of the mitochondrial and nuclear genome and (4) template preparation protocols which affect the yields of nuclear and mitochondrial genomes.
Nitrogen storage and remobilization by trees: ecophysiological relevance in a changing world.
Aberdeen, United Kingdom. In Tree Physiol, 2010
Most studies of N storage and remobilization have been restricted to small trees growing in a controlled environment where (15)N can be used easily as a tracer for mineral N. We highlight the need to describe and quantify these processes for adult trees in situ where most root N uptake occurs via ectomycorrhizal partners, an approach that now appears feasible for deciduous trees through quantification of the flux of remobilized N in their xylem.
The human glucose transporter can insert posttranslationally into microsomes.
In Cell, 1986
The following observations were made: both GT and GT-N can insert posttranslationally into microsomes; GT contains at least two distinct signal sequences; both co- and posttranslational insertion of GT-N are mediated by a signal recognition particle (SRP)-SRP receptor-dependent mechanism; and SRP is required both for targeting the polypeptide to the membrane and for initiating the actual insertion process.
