Within mitochondria, the biogenesis of the respiratory chain complexes (I to IV), is a highly coordinated process. Cox2 is a mitochondrial-encoded central subunit of the complex IV. Using yeast as a model system, we find that the ribosome receptor Mba1 forms a ribosomes-nascent chain complex with ribosome translating Cox2 and the Cox2 chaperone Cox20. We ...

Magnesium based hybrids have potential applications for hydrogen storage in the solid state. Although magnesium can store a high amount of hydrogen (7.6 wt.%), high temperatures (∼300 °C) and pressures (0.3–1 MPa) are required for the same. Additionally, the kinetics of absorption of hydrogen in bulk magnesium is slow. In the current work, Mg-LaNi5-soot hybrids ...

In addition to producing energy, mitochondria perform a number of biochemical and signaling functions. Recent evidence suggests that, like neurons in neural networks, mitochondria sense, integrate, and signal. Mitochondria thereby transmit information about external stressors and translate it into molecular and physiological responses. To understand how this influences gene expression and multisystemic neuroendocrine responses to ...

Abstract: Frequency control is one of the most relevant control applications in power systems. Traditionally, this task has been carried out on the high-voltage transmission system by using large fossil-fueled power plants as actuators. Yet, the increasing penetration of distributed renewable generation interfaced to the network via power inverters renders these conventional schemes inaproppriate, creating ...

Thus, it is tempting to use antiferromagnets as active layers in THz-frequency spin-torque nano-oscillators (STNOs). However, a familiar mechanism of spin-transfer torque (STT) damping compensation used in ferromagnetic (FM) STNOs [1] does not work for the AFM materials. In the AFM ...
