  1. Quantitative analysis of yeast MAPK signaling networks and crosstalk using a microfluidic device 

    Lee, Byungjin; Jeong, Seong-Geun; Jin, Si Hyung; et al. (2020)
    Lab on a Chip
    Eukaryotic cells developed complex mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling networks to sense their intra- and extracellular environment and respond to various stress conditions. For example,S. cerevisiaeuses five distinct MAP kinase pathways to orchestrate meiosis or respond to mating pheromones, osmolarity changes and cell wall stress. Although each MAPK module has been studied individually, the mechanisms underlying crosstalk ...

  11. Wide lag time distributions break a trade-off between reproduction and survival in bacteria 

    Moreno-Gámez S.; Kiviet D.J.; Vulin C.; et al. (2020)
    Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America
    Many microorganisms face a fundamental trade-off between reproduction and survival: Rapid growth boosts population size but makes microorganisms sensitive to external stressors. Here, we show that starved bacteria encountering new resources can break this trade-off by evolving phenotypic heterogeneity in lag time. We quantify the distribution of single-cell lag times of populations of starved Escherichia coli and show that population ...

    Banerjee S.; Abergel D.S.L.; Ågren H.; et al. (2020)
    Journal of Physics Condensed Matter
    © 2020 IOP Publishing Ltd. We investigate the extent to which the class of Dirac materials in two-dimensions provides general statements about the behavior of both fermionic and bosonic Dirac quasiparticles in the interacting regime. For both quasiparticle types, we find common features for the interaction induced renormalization of the conical Dirac spectrum. We perform the perturbative renormalization analysis and compute the self-energy ...

    Tsalicoglou C.; Allegrini J.; Carmeliet J. (2020)
    Journal of Wind Engineering and Industrial Aerodynamics
    © 2020 Elsevier Ltd The Urban Heat Island Effect describes the phenomenon that urban areas are typically warmer than the nearby rural areas, as the presence of the city causes an increase in air temperature. Increased temperatures in urban environments lead to increased discomfort, health problems, and higher cooling demands. It is therefore essential to be able to predict the location where higher temperatures tend to occur and to propose ...
