Salt bridges gate α catenin activation at intercellular junctions

Mol Biol Cell
PMCID: 5909925
PMID: 29142072

[…] for the YPet position (between residues 639 and 640) because the amino acids 636–665 in the α-catenin crystal structure are disordered (). Snapshots of α-catenin conformations were created using the Tachyon ray tracing library built-in to VMD (). […]


Crystal structure and RNA binding properties of an Hfq homolog from the deep branching Aquificae: conservation of the lateral RNA binding mode

Acta Crystallogr D Struct Biol
PMCID: 5379935
PMID: 28375142
DOI: 10.1107/S2059798317000031

[…] 011).All molecular-graphics illustrations in Figs. 5–8 and Supplementary Figs. S3–S6 were created in PyMOL, with the exception of Supplementary Figs. S4(e) and S4(f) (created in VMD and rendered with Tachyon). LigPlot+ (Laskowski & Swindells, 2011) was used in creating schematic diagrams of interatomic contacts, as in Fig. 8. Many of the scientific software tools were used as SBGrid-supported appl […]

[…] n and norm ⟨En|En⟩=-1;0) pairs of complex conjugated eigenvalues, En=Em∗ with ⟨En|Em⟩≠0 and zero norm, ⟨En|En⟩=0.In the classical analog, the latter possibility corresponds to a ghost which is also a tachyon, which is a different kind of instability, to be avoided even in absence of ghosts. +) orthogonal eigenstates ⟨En|Em⟩=0 with real En and norm ⟨En|En⟩=+1; -) orthogonal eigenstates ⟨En|Em⟩=0 wi […]


Time reversal and charge conjugation in an embedding quantum simulator

Nat Commun
PMCID: 4532877
PMID: 26239028
DOI: 10.1038/ncomms8917

[…] ivistic quantum mechanics and the quantum field theory. For example, electrons propagating through graphene are described by the (2+1)-dimensional Dirac equation, and the symmetry breaking induced by tachyon condensation is described by a (1+1)-dimensional Dirac-like equation with imaginary mass, a non-Hamiltonian system. Recently, a quantum simulation of the Majorana dynamics was performed in a p […]
