  1. Control-Bounded Analog-to-Digital Conversion 

    Malmberg, Hampus; Wilckens, Georg; Loeliger, Hans-Andrea (2021)
    CIRCUITS SYSTEMS AND SIGNAL PROCESSING
    A control-bounded analog-to-digital converter consists of a linear analog system that is subject to digital control, and a digital filter that estimates the analog input signal from the digital control signals. Such converters have many commonalities with delta-sigma converters, but they can use more general analog filters. The paper describes the operating principle, gives a transfer function analysis, and describes the digital filtering. ...

  2. PCK2 opposes mitochondrial respiration and maintains the redox balance in starved lung cancer cells 

    Bluemel G.; Planque M.; Madreiter-Sokolowski C.T.; et al. (2021)
    Free Radical Biology and Medicine
    Cancer cells frequently lack nutrients like glucose, due to insufficient vascular networks. Mitochondrial phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase, PCK2, has recently been found to mediate partial gluconeogenesis and hence anabolic metabolism in glucose starved cancer cells. Here we show that PCK2 acts as a regulator of mitochondrial respiration and maintains the redox balance in nutrient-deprived human lung cancer cells. PCK2 silencing increased ...

  5. Extraction and identification of phospholipids from whole grain kabog millet flour and predictive effects on starch binding and retrogradation 

    Hao, Boxu; Oñate Narciso, Joan; Nyström, Laura (2021)
    LWT
    Kabog millet, an indigenous gluten-free cereal grain from the Philippines, is considered an ecotype of Panicum miliaceum L. (proso millet). Phospholipids (PLs) from kabog millet could improve the texture of kabog millet food products, such as breads and cookies, by their interaction with starch. Besides their influence on baking properties of flours, PLs have been studied for their health effects. No information exists regarding the PL ...

  6. Preclinical and clinical evidence of NAD+ precursors in health, disease, and ageing 

    Reiten, Ole Kristian; Wilvang, Martin Andreas; Mitchell, Sarah J.; et al. (2021)
    Mechanisms of Ageing and Development
    NAD+ is a fundamental molecule in human life and health as it participates in energy metabolism, cell signalling, mitochondrial homeostasis, and in dictating cell survival or death. Emerging evidence from preclinical and human studies indicates an age-dependent reduction of cellular NAD+, possibly due to reduced synthesis and increased consumption. In preclinical models, NAD+ repletion extends healthspan and / or lifespan and mitigates ...

  7. Membrane-based technologies for per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) removal from water: Removal mechanisms, applications, challenges and perspectives 

    Jin, Tonghui; Peydayesh, Mohammad; Mezzenga, Raffaele (2021)
    Environment International
    Water purification from per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFASs), as a group of persistent and mobile fluoro-organic contaminants, is receiving increasing attention worldwide due to the ubiquitous presence of these highly toxic compounds. To reduce the risk of exposure of human life to PFASs and their dispersion in the environment, various techniques, primarily based on membrane technologies, have been rapidly developed. Here we ...

  8. Precision luminosity measurement in proton–proton collisions at √s=13TeV in 2015 and 2016 at CMS 

    CMS Collaboration; Sirunyan, Albert M.; Tumasyan, Armen R.; et al. (2021)
    The European Physical Journal C
    The measurement of the luminosity recorded by the CMS detector installed at LHC interaction point 5, using proton–proton collisions at s=13TeV in 2015 and 2016, is reported. The absolute luminosity scale is measured for individual bunch crossings using beam-separation scans (the van der Meer method), with a relative precision of 1.3 and 1.0% in 2015 and 2016, respectively. The dominant sources of uncertainty are related to residual ...

  9. A continuous energy-based numerical approach to predict fracture mechanisms in masonry structures: CDF method 

    Iannuzzo, Antonino; Block, Philippe; Angelillo, Maurizio; et al. (2021)
    Computers and Structures
    In the present paper, we propose the Continuous Displacement for Fracture (CDF) method, a continuous energy-based numerical approach to find mechanisms and crack patterns exhibited by 2D masonry structures subjected to given loads and settlements. The structure is modelled through the normal, rigid, no-tension material, and the equilibrium problem is solved as the minimum of the total potential energy (TPE). With the CDF method the solution ...

  10. De-Biasing Strategic Communication 

    Gesche, Tobias (2021)
    Games and Economic Behavior
    This paper studies the effect of disclosing conflicts of interest on strategic communication when the sender has lying costs. I present a simple economic mechanism under which such disclosure often leads to more informative and, at the same time, also to more biased messages. This benefits rational receivers but exerts a negative externality from them on naive or delegating receivers. Disclosure is thus not a Pareto-improvement among ...

  11. Fusing physics-based and deep learning models for prognostics 

    Arias Chao, Manuel; Kulkarni, Chetan; Goebel, Kai; et al. (2022)
    Reliability Engineering & System Safety
    Physics-based and data-driven models for remaining useful lifetime (RUL) prediction typically suffer from two major challenges that limit their applicability to complex real-world domains: (1) the incompleteness of physics-based models and (2) the limited representativeness of the training dataset for data-driven models. Combining the advantages of these two approaches while overcoming some of their limitations, we propose a novel hybrid ...

  12. The binding of the small heat-shock protein αB-crystallin to fibrils of α-synuclein is driven by entropic forces 

    Scheidt, Tom; Carozza, Jacqueline A.; Kolbe, Carl C.; et al. (2021)
    Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America
    Molecular chaperones are key components of the cellular proteostasis network whose role includes the suppression of the formation and proliferation of pathogenic aggregates associated with neurodegenerative diseases. The molecular principles that allow chaperones to recognize misfolded and aggregated proteins remain, however, incompletely understood. To address this challenge, here we probe the thermodynamics and kinetics of the interactions ...

  13. Rowing, steering or anchoring? Public values for geothermal energy governance 

    Ruef, Franziska; Ejderyan, Olivier (2021)
    Energy Policy
    Energy transitions require a rethinking of the role of public authorities to integrate public views and concerns. Through a case study in Geneva, Switzerland, this article examines how the public sees the role of the public authority in the transformation of a local energy system by developing a canton-wide geothermal program. We use a public values perspective, identifying public values linked to the roles and responsibilities of the ...

  15. Identifying extracellular vesicle populations from single cells 

    Nikoloff, Jonas; Saucedo-Espinosa, Mario A.; Kling, André; et al. (2021)
    Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America
    Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are constantly secreted from both eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells. EVs, including those referred to as exosomes, may have an impact on cell signaling and an incidence in diseased cells. In this manuscript, a platform to capture, quantify, and phenotypically classify the EVs secreted from single cells is introduced. Microfluidic chambers of about 300 pL are employed to trap and isolate individual cells. The ...

  16. Characterization of the Developing Lacunocanalicular Network During Fracture Repair 

    Casanova, Michele; Schindeler, Aaron; Peacock, Lauren; et al. (2021)
    JBMR Plus
    Fracture repair is a normal physiological response to bone injury. During the process of bony callus formation, a lacunocanalicular network (LCN) is formed de novo that evolves with callus remodeling. Our aim was the longitudinal assessment of the development and evolution of the LCN during fracture repair. To this end, 45 adult wild-type C57BL/6 mice underwent closed tibial fracture surgery. Fractured and intact contralateral tibias were ...

  17. Search for top squark production in fully hadronic final states in proton-proton collisions at s =13 TeV 

    Sirunyan A.M.; Tumasyan A.; Adam W.; et al. (2021)
    Physical Review D
    A search for production of the supersymmetric partners of the top quark, top squarks, is presented. The search is based on proton-proton collision events containing multiple jets, no leptons, and large transverse momentum imbalance. The data were collected with the CMS detector at the CERN LHC at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV, and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 137 fb-1. The targeted signal production scenarios are direct ...

  18. Amino acids activate mTORC1 to release roe deer embryos from decelerated proliferation during diapause 

    Van Der Weijden V.A.; Bick J.T.; Bauersachs S.; et al. (2021)
    Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America
    Embryonic diapause in mammals leads to a reversible developmental arrest. While completely halted in many species, European roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) embryos display a continuous deceleration of proliferation. During a 4-mo period, the cell doubling time is 2 to 3wk. During this period, the preimplantation blastocyst reaches a diameter of 4 mm, after which it resumes a fast developmental pace to subsequently implant. The mechanisms ...

  19. Limitation of Microbial Processes at Saturation-Level Salinities in a Microbial Mat Covering a Coastal Salt Flat 

    Meier, Dimitri, V; Greve, Andreas J.; Chennu, Arjun; et al. (2021)
    Applied and Environmental Microbiology
    Hypersaline microbial mats are dense microbial ecosystems capable of performing complete element cycling and are considered analogs of early Earth and hypothetical extraterrestrial ecosystems. We studied the functionality and limits of key biogeochemical processes, such as photosynthesis, aerobic respiration, and sulfur cycling, in salt crust-covered microbial mats from a tidal flat at the coast of Oman. We measured light, oxygen, and ...

  20. The Diffusion of Participatory Planning Ideas and Practices: The Case of Socialist Yugoslavia, 1961-1982 

    Blagojevic, Mina; Peric Momcilovic, Ana (2021)
    Journal of Urban History
    Although both praised and contested for its advanced conceptual elaboration and ineffective practical implementation, respectively, participatory planning has largely been considered a Yugoslav national legacy and a point of diversification compared with other similar contexts. However, there has been little research on the roots and features of public participation as observed through the lens of international influences on Yugoslav ...
