Universality in numerical computations [Psychological and Cognitive Sciences]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Wed, 09/24/2014 - 12:15
The authors present evidence for universality in numerical computations with random data. Given a (possibly stochastic) numerical algorithm with random input data, the time (or number of iterations) to convergence (within a given tolerance) is a random variable, called the halting time. Two-component universality is observed for the fluctuations of...

Smallest coding covalently closed circular RNA [Microbiology]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Wed, 09/24/2014 - 12:15
The highly structured (64% GC) covalently closed circular (CCC) RNA (220 nt) of the virusoid associated with rice yellow mottle virus codes for a 16-kDa highly basic protein using novel modalities for coding, translation, and gene expression. This CCC RNA is the smallest among all known viroids and virusoids and...

Dissecting cadherin binding affinity determinants [Biophysics and Computational Biology]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Wed, 09/24/2014 - 12:15
Type I cadherin cell-adhesion proteins are similar in sequence and structure and yet are different enough to mediate highly specific cell–cell recognition phenomena. It has previously been shown that small differences in the homophilic and heterophilic binding affinities of different type I family members can account for the differential cell-sorting...

H-NOX activation [Biochemistry]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Wed, 09/24/2014 - 12:15
Heme-nitric oxide/oxygen (H-NOX) binding domains are a recently discovered family of heme-based gas sensor proteins that are conserved across eukaryotes and bacteria. Nitric oxide (NO) binding to the heme cofactor of H-NOX proteins has been implicated as a regulatory mechanism for processes ranging from vasodilation in mammals to communal behavior...
