  2. Cassava-maize intercropping systems in southern Nigeria: Radiation use efficiency, soil moisture dynamics, and yields of component crops 

    Nwokoro, Charles Chigemezu; Kreye, Christine; Necpalova, Magdalena; et al. (2022)
    Field Crops Research
    Efficient utilization of incident solar radiation and rainwater conservation in rain-fed smallholder cropping systems require the development and adoption of cropping systems with high resource use efficiency. Due to the popularity of cassava-maize intercropping and the food security and economic importance of both crops in Nigeria, we investigated options to improve interception of photosynthetically active radiation (IPAR), radiation ...

  3. Global post-translational modification profiling of HIV-1-infected cells reveals mechanisms of host cellular pathway remodeling 

    Johnson, Jeffrey R.; Crosby, David C.; Hultquist, Judd F.; et al. (2022)
    Cell Reports
    Viruses must effectively remodel host cellular pathways to replicate and evade immune defenses, and they must do so with limited genomic coding capacity. Targeting post-translational modification (PTM) pathways provides a mechanism by which viruses can broadly and rapidly transform a hostile host environment into a hospitable one. We use mass spectrometry-based proteomics to quantify changes in protein abundance and two PTM types-phosphorylation ...

  4. Review on design strategies and applications of metal-organic framework-cellulose composites 

    Tu, Kunkun; Ding, Yong; Keplinger, Tobias (2022)
    Carbohydrate Polymers
    Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are among the most attractive functional porous materials. However, their processability and handling remains a substantial challenge because MOFs generally occur in powder form due to their crystalline nature. Combining MOFs and cellulose substrates to fabricate engineered materials offers an ideal solution to broaden their utilization as functional materials. MOF/cellulose composites further provide ...

  5. A microfluidic platform for characterizing the structure and rheology of biofilm streamers 

    Savorana, Giovanni; Slomka, Jonasz; Stocker, Roman; et al. (2022)
    Soft Matter
    Biofilm formation is the most successful survival strategy for bacterial communities. In the biofilm lifestyle, bacteria embed themselves in a self-secreted matrix of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS), which acts as a shield against mechanical and chemical insults. When ambient flow is present, this viscoelastic scaffold can take a streamlined shape, forming biofilm filaments suspended in flow, called streamers. Streamers significantly ...

  7. Strategy games to improve environmental policymaking 

    Garcia, Claude A.; Savilaakso, Sini; Verburg, Rene W.; et al. (2022)
    Nature Sustainability
    Scholars develop scenarios to identify the operational margins of system Earth, but focus less on how decisions are made that affect the system one way or another. Strategy games can help increase the representation of human agency in scenario development, allowing for deliberation among diverse worldviews.

  10. Response of Drainage Pattern and Basin Evolution to Tectonic and Climatic Changes Along the Dinarides-Hellenides Orogen 

    Gemignani, Lorenzo; Mittelbach, Benedict; Simon, Dirk; et al. (2022)
    Frontiers in Earth Science
    The junction of the Dinaric and Hellenic mountain belts hosts a trans-orogenic normal fault system (Shkoder-Peja Normal Fault, SPNF) that has accommodated oroclinal bending, as well as focused basin formation and drainage of the Drin River catchment. Analysis of fluvial morphology of this catchment reveals higher values of river slope indices (ksn) and χ (Chi) between the normal faults of the SPNF and the Drin drainage divide. The drainage ...

  11. Determination of constitutive friction laws appropriate for simulation of cutting processes 

    Schulze, Volker; Bleicher, Friedrich; Courbon, Cédric; et al. (2022)
    CIRP Journal of Manufacturing Science and Technology
    The influence of friction on machining processes as a function of pressure, velocity and temperature is neither deeply understood nor sufficiently definable for Finite-Element-Method (FEM) simulations. Current simulations therefore often use constant values for the friction coefficients. In this work, friction coefficients for SAE 1045 are determined from different tribometers. An empirical model is subsequently fit to the data and used ...

  12. The radiocarbon world according to Wally 

    Hajdas, Irka (2022)
    Wallace Smith Broecker (1933–2019) grew up in Oak Park, Illinois, a village in Cook County adjacent to Chicago. From 1949 to 1952 he attended Wheaton College, but moved to graduate in 1953 from Columbia University, where he remained for a 66-year-long scientific career. In this time, he wrote many publications about the radioactive isotope of carbon. As the whole community knows him, Wally was a geochemist who found the passion of his ...

  13. The Effects of Health Care Chatbot Personas With Different Social Roles on the Client-Chatbot Bond and Usage Intentions: Development of a Design Codebook and Web-Based Study 

    Nißen, Marcia Katharina; Rüegger, Dominik; Stieger, Mirjam; et al. (2022)
    Journal of Medical Internet Research
    Background: The working alliance refers to an important relationship quality between health professionals and clients that robustly links to treatment success. Recent research shows that clients can develop an affective bond with chatbots. However, few research studies have investigated whether this perceived relationship is affected by the social roles of differing closeness a chatbot can impersonate and by allowing users to choose the ...

  14. Consistent lattice Boltzmann model for reactive mixtures 

    Sawant, Nilesh; Dorschner, Benedikt; Karlin, Ilya V. (2022)
    Journal of Fluid Mechanics
    A new lattice Boltzmann model (LBM) for chemically reactive mixtures is presented. The approach capitalizes on the recently introduced thermodynamically consistent LBM for multicomponent mixtures of ideal gases. Similar to the non-reactive case, the present LBM features Stefan-Maxwell diffusion of chemical species and a fully on-lattice mean-field realization of the momentum and energy of the flow. Besides introducing the reaction mechanism ...

    Suarez, Jaime; Makridis, Michail; Anesiadou, Aikaterini; et al. (2022)
    Transportation Research Part D: Transport and Environment
    The study proposes a methodology for quantifying the impact of real-world heterogeneous driving behavior on vehicle energy consumption, linking instantaneous acceleration heterogeneity and CO2 emissions. Data recorded from 20 different drivers under real driving are benchmarked against the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Cycle (WLTC), first by correlating the speed cycle with individual driver behavior and then by quantifying the ...

  16. Argonaute proteins regulate a specific network of genes through KLF4 in mouse embryonic stem cells 

    Müller, Madlen; Schaefer, Moritz; Fäh, Tara; et al. (2022)
    Stem Cell Reports
    The Argonaute proteins (AGOs) are well known for their role in post-transcriptional gene silencing in the microRNA (miRNA) pathway. Here we show that in mouse embryonic stem cells, AGO1&2 serve additional functions that go beyond the miRNA pathway. Through the combined deletion of both Agos, we identified a specific set of genes that are uniquely regulated by AGOs but not by the other miRNA biogenesis factors. Deletion of Ago2&1 caused a ...

  17. Competition contributes to both warm and cool range edges 

    Lyu, Shengman; Alexander, Jake M. (2022)
    Nature Communications
    Competition plays an important role in shaping species' spatial distributions. However, it remains unclear where and how competition regulates species' range limits. In a field experiment with plants originating from low and high elevations and conducted across an elevation gradient in the Swiss Alps, we find that both lowland and highland species can better persist in the presence of competition within, rather than beyond, their elevation ...

  19. Assessing the Effects of Closure-Free Periods on Railway Intervention Costs and Service 

    Burkhalter, Marcel; Adey, Bryan T. (2022)
    Journal of Infrastructure Systems
    Ensuring that railways provide excellent service requires the execution of maintenance interventions. As railway use intensifies, this becomes increasingly difficult due to the conflict between track possession used for train operation and the execution of interventions. One way to improve the consistency of train schedules, and thus user comfort, is to impose closure-free periods, in which no interventions are planned. The imposition of ...

  20. Impact on the perceived landscape quality through renewable energy infrastructure 

    Salak, B.; Kienast, F.; Olschewski, R.; et al. (2022)
    Renewable Energy
    This paper examines how mixes (wind, photovoltaic, power lines) of different renewable energy infrastructure (REI) impact people's preferences for various landscape types. This does not only involve the visual character but also meanings that are assigned to these landscapes, which together influence the perceived landscape quality. The research is based on a representative online panel survey of Swiss residents (n = 1062). A discrete ...
