Linking a mitotic oscillator to the extracellular environment: the importance of protein network structure and multisite phosphorylation
This thesis work contributes the first vital steps in the development of a biologically based proliferation model to advance a bioartificial tissue regeneration model. Specifically, this work presents a mitotic oscillator ...
Morphosyntax of Wangka, a dialect of Rembong-Riung
This dissertation presents an analysis of the morphosyntax of Wangka, a dialect of Rembong-Riung, a language spoken in west-central Flores in eastern Indonesia. Wangka is spoken by about 5,000 people in three villages, ...
Mapping tumor metabolism: from personalized multiobjective metabolic flux analysis to intercellular metabolite transport via exosomes
Departure from healthy and tightly-regulated metabolism is an emerging hallmark of cancer that facilitates tumorigenic characteristics of uncontrolled proliferation, metastasis, and resistance to chemotherapy. Our aim is ...
Solution processing of boron nitride nanotubes and Bending behavior of carbon nanotube fibers
Boron Nitride Nanotubes (BNNTs) are allotropes of boron nitride (BN). Unlike carbon nanotubes (CNTs), BNNTs have a high band-gap and stronger chemical resistance making them stable to temperatures around 1000 °C. Additionally, ...
Tumor Microenvironment Derived Exosomes Pleiotropically Modulate Cancer Cell Metabolism
Exosomes are extracellular vesicles responsible for efficient cell-to-cell communications. We intended to investigate the role of tumor microenvironment (TME) derived exosomes in regulating cancer cell metabolism. We found ...
Space–Time Interface-Tracking Computations with Contact Between Solid Surfaces
To address the computational challenges associated with contact between moving solid surfaces, such as those in cardiovascular fluid–structure interaction (FSI), parachute FSI, and flapping-wing aerodynamics, we introduce ...
