      Growth factor signaling pathways are tightly regulated by phosphorylation and include many important kinase targets of interest for drug discovery. Small molecule inhibitors of the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) receptor ...
    • A New Crucial Protein Interaction Element That Targets the Adenovirus E4-ORF1 Oncoprotein to Membrane Vesicles 

      Chung, Sang-Hyuk; Frese, Kristopher K.; Weiss, Robert S.; Prasad, B. V. Venkataram; Javier, Ronald T. (Journal of Virology, 2007-05)
      Human adenovirus type 9 exclusively elicits mammary tumors in experimental animals, and the primary oncogenic determinant of this virus is the E4-ORF1 oncogene, as opposed to the well-known E1A and E1Boncogenes. The ...
    • A new mechanism for sonoluminescence 

      Prosperetti, Andrea (The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 1997-04)
      It is argued that a pulsating acoustically levitated bubble cannot possibly maintain a spherical shape. A jet forms during compression, and the sound amplitude such that the jet first strikes the other side of the bubble ...
    • A New Robot-Assisted Therapy for Stroke Survivors: Effects of Long-Term Stretching Exercises on Ankle Range of Motion, Balance and Gait 

      Yoo, Dongyual; Lee, Beom-Chan; Son, Younsun (2017)
      Our study has demonstrated that stroke survivors received ankle stretching exercises with the MAS for 4 weeks improved ankle range of motion, balance, and gait ability. These improvements remained relatively constant through ...
    • A Nonlinear Model of Thermoacoustic Devices 

      Karpov, Sergey; Prosperetti, Andrea (The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 2002-10)
      This paper presents a nonlinear, time-domain model of thermoacoustic devices based on cross-sectional averaged equations. Heat transfer perpendicular to the device axis—which lies at the core of thermoacoustic effects—is ...
    • A note on the effective slip properties for microchannel flows with ultra-hydrophobic surfaces 

      Sbragaglia, M.; Prosperetti, Andrea (The Physics of Fluids, 4/23/2007)
      A type of superhydrophobic surface consists of a solid plane boundary with an array of grooves which, due to the effect of surface tension, prevent a complete wetting of the wall. The effect is greatest when the grooves ...
    • A Novel Demand Response Management Model to Reduce Smart Grid Costs 

      Ahmadian, Saeed; Malki, Heidar A.; Barati, Masoud (2017)
