    Ion-exchange chromatography (IEX) relies on electrostatic interactions between the adsorbent and the adsorbate, and is used extensively in protein purification. Conventional IEX utilizes ligands that are singly charged ...
  • Flux of carbonate melt from deeply subducted pelitic sediments: Geophysical and geochemical implications for the source of Central American volcanic arc 

    Tsuno, Kyusei; Dasgupta, Rajdeep; Danielson, Lisa; Righter, Kevin (2012-08-24)
    [1] We determined the fluid-present and fluid-absent near-solidus melting of an Al-poor carbonated pelite at 3–7 GPa, to constrain the possible influence of sediment melt in subduction zones. Hydrous silicate melt is ...

  • Frustration in biomolecules 

    Ferreiro, Diego U.; Komives, Elizabeth A.; Wolynes, Peter G. (2014)

    Rinaldi, Mauro A.; Liu, James; Enders, Tara A.; Bartel, Bonnie; Strader, Lucia C. (2012)
    Auxin regulates many aspects of plant development, in part, through degradation of the Aux/IAA family of transcriptional repressors. Consequently, stabilizing mutations in several Aux/IAA proteins confer reduced auxin ...
