Recent Submissions

  • Ganesh, Krishna; Liz-Marzan, Luis; Zhang, Deqing; Bohne, Cornelia (ACS Omega, 2017-07)
  • Gemmrich, L.; Mynhardt, C.M. (2017-08-21)
    A dominating broadcast on a graph G=(V,E) is a function f:V→{0,1,…,diam(G)} such that f(v)≤e(v) (the eccentricity of v) for all v∈V, and each u∈V is at distance at most f(v) from a vertex v with f(v)≥1. The upper broadcast ...
  • Yin, Yue; Zhou, Julie (2017-07-31)
    We investigate properties and numerical algorithms for A- and D-optimal regression designs based on the second-order least squares estimator (SLSE). Several results are derived, including a characterization of the ...
  • Wong, Weng Kee; Yin, Yue; Zhou, Julie (Springer, 2017-02-27)
    We introduce a powerful and yet seldom used numerical approach in statistics for solving a broad class of optimization problems where the search space is discretized. This optimization tool is widely used in engineering ...
  • Ballinger, Matthew; Perlman, Steve (PLOS Pathogens, 2017-07-06)
    While it has become increasingly clear that multicellular organisms often harbor microbial symbionts that protect their hosts against natural enemies, the mechanistic underpinnings underlying most defensive symbioses are ...
  • Hamilton, Phineas; Leong, Jong; Koop, Ben; Perlman, Steve (Molecular Ecology, 2014-03)
    Inherited symbionts are ubiquitous in insects and can have important consequences for the fitness of their hosts. Many inherited symbionts defend their hosts against parasites or other natural enemies; however, the means ...
  • Paulson, Amber; Le, Cuong; Dickson, Jamie; Ehlting, Jürgen; von Aderkas, Patrick; Perlman, Steve (Insect Molecular Biology, 2016-10)
    One of the most striking host range transitions is the evolution of plant parasitism from animal parasitism. Parasitoid wasps that have secondarily evolved to attack plants (ie gall wasps and seed-feeders) demonstrate ...
  • Hamilton, Phineas; Peng, Fangni; Boulanger, Martin; Perlman, Steve (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS), 2016-01-12)
    Vertically transmitted symbionts that protect their hosts against parasites and pathogens are well known from insects, yet the underlying mechanisms of symbiont-mediated defense are largely unclear. A striking example of ...
  • Hodson, Christina; Hamilton, Phineas; Dilworth, Dave; Nelson, Chris; Curtis, Caitlin; Perlman, Steve (Genetics, 2017-06-01)
    How sex is determined in insects is diverse and dynamic, and includes male heterogamety, female heterogamety, and haplodiploidy. In many insect lineages, sex determination is either completely unknown or poorly studied. ...
  • Keais, Graeme; Hanson, Mark; Gowen, Brent; Perlman, Steve (Journal of Evolutionary Biology, 2017-06)
    Selfish genes that bias their own transmission during meiosis can spread rapidly in populations, even if they contribute negatively to the fitness of their host. Driving X chromosomes provide a clear example of this type ...
  • Perlman, Steve; Hodson, Christina; Hamilton, Phineas; Opit, George; Gowen, Brent (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS), 2015-08-18)
    In virtually all multicellular eukaryotes, mitochondria are transmitted exclusively through one parent, usually the mother. In this short review, we discuss some of the major consequences of uniparental transmission of ...
  • Schäfer, Katy; Ihmels, Heiko; Bohne, Cornelia; Valente, Karolina Papera; Granzhan, Anton (The Journal of Organic Chemistry, 2016)
    It is shown by photometric and fluorimetric analysis, along with supporting theoretical calculations, that hydroxy-substituted benzo[b]quinolizinium derivatives display the characteristic features of organic photoacids. ...
  • Fukuhara, Gaku; Imai, Mami; Ishida, Yuki; Kurohara, Hiroki; Yang, Cheng; Mori, Tadashi; Uyama, Hiroshi; Cornelia, Bohne; Inouea, Yoshihisa; Fuentealba, Denis (Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry, 2016)
    Hybridizing natural macromolecule with synthetic polymer is an efficient general method for constructing sophisticated supramolecular architectures. To comprehensively elucidate the controversial hybridization mechanism ...
  • Janusson, Eric; McGarvey, G. Bryce; Islam, Farhana; Rowana, Christine; McIndoe, J. Scott (The Analyst, 2016)
    A simple chemical derivatization technique was developed for electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) in which thiols and disulfides may be selectively analyzed in a complex matrix and easily characterized. These ...
  • Ahmadi, Zohrab; Yunker, Lars P. E.; Oliver, Allen G.; McIndoe, J. Scott (Dalton Transactions, 2015)
    The mechanism of the Sonogashira reaction in methanol was studied in detail using pressurized sample infusion electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (PSI-ESI-MS). Several key intermediates were identified and their ...
  • Gillon, Bronwyn H.; Gates, Derek P.; Henderson, Matthew A.; Janusson, Eric; McIndoe, J. Scott (Canadian Journal of Chemistry, 2016)
    Oligomeric phosphalkenes are readily characterized using electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS). The high affinity of phosphines for silver ions permits the detection of the unadulterated polymer as [M + xAg]x+ ...
  • Janusson, Eric; Hesketh, Amelia; Bamford, Karlee; Hatlelid, Katie; Higgins, Rehan; McIndoe, J. Scott (International Journal of Mass Spectrometry, 2015)
    The position of the spray-head, the solvent, and a variety of additional instrumental parameters were independently adjusted during electrospray ionization mass spectrometric (ESI-MS) analysis of an equimolar mixture of ...
  • Ujam, Oguejiofo T.; Janusson, Eric; Stoddard, Rhonda L.; Mclndoe, J. Scott; Oliver, Allen G.; Odo, Paschal C.; Ogbonna, Ogbonna C. (Inorganica Chimica Acta, 2016)
    Reactions of [Pt2(μ-S)2(PPh3)4] with activated aliphatic bromoacyl alkylating agents BrCH2C(O)C(CH3)3, BrCH2C(O)CH2CH3 and BrCH2C(O)C(O)CH2Br, were investigated by electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) in real ...
  • Vikse, Krista L.; McIndoe, J. Scott (Pure and Applied Chemistry, 2015)
    Real-time mass spectrometric monitoring of speciation in a catalytic reaction while it is occurring provides powerful insights into mechanistic aspects of the reaction, but cannot be expected to elucidate all details. ...
