Magnetic field directed assembly of twodimensional fractal colloidal aggregates
(2013)The anisotropy of dipolar interactions can sometimes be a hindrance when assembling colloids, as it limits the diversity of structures that can be manufactured. Here we demonstrate that a mixture of paramagnetic and ... 
Metabolic engineering of carbon and redox flow in the production of small organic acids
(2014)The review describes efforts toward metabolic engineering of production of organic acids. One aspect of the strategy involves the generation of an appropriate amount and type of reduced cofactor needed for the designed ... 
Metabolic engineering: Use of systemlevel approaches and application to fuel production in Escherichia coli
(2013)Metabolic engineering was formally defined more than two decades ago (Bailey, 1991) and it is now an established discipline. Metabolic engineering is generally defined as the directed improvement of product formation or ... 
Metabolic regulation of collagen gel contraction by porcine aortic valvular interstitial cells
(2014)Despite a high incidence of calcific aortic valve disease in metabolic syndrome, there is little information about the fundamental metabolism of heart valves. Cell metabolism is a first responder to chemical and mechanical ... 
Metabolic shifts toward glutamine regulate tumor growth, invasion and bioenergetics in ovarian cancer
(2014)Glutamine can play a critical role in cellular growth in multiple cancers. Glutamine‐addicted cancer cells are dependent on glutamine for viability, and their metabolism is reprogrammed for glutamine utilization through ... 
Metabolic transistor strategy for controlling electron transfer chain activity in Escherichia coli
(2015)A novel strategy to finely control a large metabolic flux by using a “metabolic transistor” approach was established. In this approach a small change in the level or availability of an essential component for the process ... 
Micromutualdipolar model for rapid calculation of forces between paramagnetic colloids
(2014)Typically, the force between paramagnetic particles in a uniform magnetic field is calculated using either dipolebased models or the Maxwell stress tensor combined with Laplace's equation for magnetostatics. Dipolebased ... 
Modeling Integrated Cellular Machinery Using Hybrid PetriBoolean Networks
(2013)The behavior and phenotypic changes of cells are governed by a cellular circuitry that represents a set of biochemical reactions. Based on biological functions, this circuitry is divided into three types of networks, each ... 
Modeling lower critical solution temperature behavior of associating polymer brushes with classical density functional theory
(2013)We study the lower critical solution temperature (LCST) behavior of associating polymer brushes (i.e., poly(Nisopropylacrylamide)) using classical density functional theory. Without using any empirical or temperaturedependent ... 
Modeling micelle formation and interfacial properties with iSAFT classical density functional theory
(2017)Surfactants reduce the interfacial tension between phases, making them an important additive in a number of industrial and commercial applications from enhanced oil recovery to personal care products (e.g., shampoo and ... 
Modified Mason number for charged paramagnetic colloidal suspensions
(2016)The dynamics of magnetorheological fluids have typically been described by the Mason number, a governing parameter defined as the ratio between viscous and magnetic forces in the fluid. For most experimental suspensions ... 
Molecular theory for self assembling mixtures of patchy colloids and colloids with spherically symmetric attractions: The single patch case
(2013)In this work we develop a new theory to model self assembling mixtures of single patch colloids and colloids with spherically symmetric attractions. In the development of the theory we restrict the interactions such that ... 
Molecular theory for the phase equilibria and cluster distribution of associating fluids with small bond angles
(2013)We develop a new theory for associating fluids with multiple association sites. The theory accounts for small bond angle effects such as steric hindrance, ring formation, and double bonding. The theory is validated against ... 
A Monte Carlo density functional theory for the competition between inter and intramolecular association in inhomogeneous fluids
(2013)A Monte Carlo density functional theory is developed for chain molecules which both intra and intermolecularly associate. The approach can be applied over a range of chain lengths. The theory is validated for the case of ... 
A New Stabilization of Adaptive Step Trapezoid Rule Based on Finite Difference Interrupts
(2015)The adaptive step trapezoid rule (TR) is a generally effective numerical integrator, but it is prone to ringing instability and solution stall. We introduce a new stabilization algorithm based on finite difference interrupts ... 
Nitric oxide is a positive regulator of the Warburg effect in ovarian cancer cells
(2014)Ovarian cancer (OVCA) is among the most lethal gynecological cancers leading to high mortality rates among women. Increasing evidence indicate that cancer cells undergo metabolic transformation during tumorigenesis and ... 
Noncontact conductivity and dielectric measurement for high throughput rolltoroll nanomanufacturing
(2015)Advances in rolltoroll processing of graphene and carbon nanotubes have at last led to the continuous production of highquality coatings and filaments, ushering in a wave of applications for flexible and wearable ... 
Novel applications of statins for bone regeneration
(2015)The use of statins for bone regeneration is a promising and growing area of research. Statins, originally developed to treat high cholesterol, are inhibitors of the enzyme 3hydroxy3methylglutaryl, the ratelimiting ... 
Numerical calculation of interaction forces between paramagnetic colloids in twodimensional systems
(2014)Typically the force between paramagnetic particles in a uniform magnetic field is described using the dipolar model, which is inaccurate when particles are in close proximity to each other. Instead, the exact force between ... 
Parallel bulk heterojunction photovoltaics based on allconjugated block copolymer additives
(2016)In recent studies, we demonstrated that the addition of block copolymers to binary donorﾖacceptor blends represents an effective approach to target equilibrium, cocontinuous morphologies of interpenetrating donors and ...
