Adhesive ligand tether length affects the size and length of focal adhesions and influences cell spreading and attachment.
Cells are known to respond to physical cues from their microenvironment such as matrix rigidity. Discrete adhesive ligands within flexible strands of fibronectin connect cell surface integrins to the broader extracellular ...
Optical Ultrasound Generation and Detection for Intravascular Imaging: A Review.
Combined ultrasound and photoacoustic imaging has attracted significant interests for intravascular imaging such as atheromatous plaque detection, with ultrasound imaging providing spatial location and morphology and ...
Search reliability and search efficiency of combined Lévy–Brownian motion: long relocations mingled with thorough local exploration
(IOP Publishing: Hybrid Open Access, 2016-09-08)
A combined dynamics consisting of Brownian motion and Levy flights is exhibited by a variety of biological systems performing search processes. Assessing the search reliability of ever locating the target and the search ...
An adsorption-precipitation model for the formation of injector external deposits in internal combustion engines
The occurrence of deposits on fuel injectors used in gasoline direct injection engines can lead to fuel preparation and combustion events which lie outside of the intended engine design envelope. The fundamental mechanism ...
