Recent Submissions

  • Jardon, Mario A.; Rothe, Katharina; Bortnik, Svetlana; Vezenkov, Lubomir; Jiang, Xiaoyan; Young, Robert N.; Lum, Julian J.; Gorski, Sharon M. (Autophagy, 2013)
    Multidisciplinary approaches are increasingly being used to elucidate the role of autophagy in health and disease and to harness it for therapeutic purposes. The broad range of topics included in the program of the Vancouver ...
  • van den Driessche, P.; Yakubu, Abdul-Aziz (Journal of Biological Dynamics, 2018)
    We use a general autonomous discrete-time infectious disease model to extend the next generation matrix approach for calculating the basic reproduction number, R0, to account for populations with locally asymptotically ...
  • Dukes, Peter J.; Ling, Alan C. H.; Malloch, Amanda (The Australasian Journal of Combinatorics, 2016)
    We show that the necessary divisibility conditions for the existence ofaσ-resolvable BIBD(v,k,λ) are sufficient for largev. The key idea isto form an auxiliary graph based on an [r,k]-configuration ...
  • Dukes, Peter J.; Lamken, Esther R.; Ling, Alan C. H. (The Electronic Journal of Combinatorics, 2016)
    We prove that the necessary divisibility conditions are sufficient for the existence of resolvable group divisible designs with a fixed number of sufficiently large groups. Our method combines an application of the Rees ...
  • Dukes, Peter J.; Iwasaki, Kaoruko (Ars Mathematica Contemporanea, 2020)
    An (n3) configuration is an incidence structure equivalent to a linear hypergraph on n vertices which is both 3-regular and 3-uniform. We investigate a variant in which one constraint, say 3-regularity, is present, and we ...
  • Johnson, Nils; Burek, Peter; Byers, Edward; Falchetta, Giacomo; Flörke, Martina; Fujimori, Shinichiro; Havlik, Petr; Hejazi, Mohamad; Hunt, Julian; Krey, Volker; Langan, Simon; Nakicenovic, Nebojsa; Palazzo, Amanda; Popp, Alexander; Riahi, Keywan; van Dijk, Michiel; van Vliet, Michelle T. H.; van Vuuren, Detlef P.; Parkinson, Simon; et al. (Water, 2019)
    Increasing human demands for water, energy, food and materials, are expected to accentuate resource supply challenges over the coming decades. Experience suggests that long-term strategies for a single sector could yield ...
  • Pulkoski-Gross, Michael J.; Jenkins, Meredith L.; Truman, Jean-Philip; Salama, Mohamed F.; Clarke, Christopher J.; Burke, John E.; Hannun, Yusuf A.; Obeid, Lina M. (Journal of Lipid Research, 2018)
    Sphingosine kinase 1 (SK1) is required for production of sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) and thereby regulates many cellular processes, including cellular growth, immune cell trafficking, and inflammation. To produce S1P, ...
  • Vickers, Chelsea; Liu, Feng; Abe, Kento; Salama-Alber, Orly; Jenkins, Meredith; Springate, Christopher M. K.; Burke, John E.; Withers, Stephen G.; Boraston, Alisdair B. (Journal of Biological Chemistry, 2018)
    Fucoidans are chemically complex and highly heterogeneous sulfated marine fucans from brown macro algae. Possessing a variety of physicochemical and biological activities, fucoidans are used as gelling and thickening agents ...
  • Bueckert, Max; Gupta, Rishi; Gupta, Aditi; Garg, Mohit; Mazumder, Asit (Materials, 2020)
    The unwavering spread of COVID-19 has taken the world by storm. Preventive measures like social distancing and mask usage have been taken all around the globe but still, as of September 2020, the number of cases continues ...
  • Izadi, Mohammad; Srivastava, H.M. (Entropy, 2020)
    The present study aimed to develop and investigate the local discontinuous Galerkin method for the numerical solution of the fractional logistic differential equation, occurring in many biological and social science ...
  • OuYang, Fangqun; Ou, Yang; Ma, Jianwei; An, Sanping; Zhao, Jun; Wang, Junhui; Kong, Lisheng; Zhang, Hanguo; Tigabu, Mulualem (Forests, 2021)
    Monochromatic red light (R) supplementation is more efficient than blue light (B) in promoting Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) H. Karst) growth. Transcriptome analysis has revealed that R and B may regulate stem growth by ...
  • Saville, James W.; Ross, Joseph A.; Trefz, Tyler; Schatz, Crystal; Matheson-Bird, Heather; Ralston, Brenda; Granot, Ori; Schmid, Karin; Terry, Richard; Allan, Nicholas D.; Wulff, Jeremy E.; Olson, Merle (Animals, 2020)
    Castration is among the most common management procedures performed in the dairy and beef cattle industries and is mainly performed by surgery or elastic banding. Despite the various benefits of castration, all methods ...
  • Battino, Umberto; Lederer-Woods, Claudia; Cseh, Borbála; Denissenkov, Pavel; Herwig, Falk (Universe, 2021)
    The slow neutron-capture process (s-process) efficiency in low-mass AGB stars (1.5 < M/M⊙ < 3) critically depends on how mixing processes in stellar interiors are handled, which is still affected by considerable uncertainties. ...
  • Hobbs, Joanne K.; Meier, Edward P. W.; Pluvinage, Benjamin; Mey, Mackenzie A.; Boraston, Alisdair B. (Journal of Biological Chemistry, 2019)
    Streptococcus pneumoniae is an opportunistic respiratory pathogen that can spread to other body sites, including the ears, brain, and blood. The ability of this bacterium to break down, import, and metabolize a wide range ...
  • Burke, John E. (Journal of Biological Chemistry, 2019)
    Since I started doing scientific research, I've been fascinated by the interplay of protein structure and dynamics and how they together mediate protein function. A particular area of interest has been in understanding the ...
