Efficient evaluation of analytic Fukui functions
An efficient method for the analytic evaluation of Fukui functions is proposed. Working equations are derived and numerical results are used to validate the method on medium size set of molecules. In addition to the ...
Electron propagator calculations on C-60 and C-70 photoelectron spectra
Vertical ionization energies of C60 and C70 fullerenes are calculated with semidirect implementations of electron propagator methods and a triple- plus polarization basis set. These predictions are in close agreement ...
Increased cellular free cholesterol in macrophage-specific Abca1 knock-out mice enhances pro-inflammatory response of macrophages
Macrophage-specific Abca1 knock-out (Abca1(-M/-M)) mice were generated to determine the role of macrophage ABCA1 expression in plasma lipoprotein concentrations and the innate immune response of macrophages. Plasma lipid ...
Politics a "Chilly" Environment for Undergraduate Women in Norway
Gender differences in academic performance and attitudes are widespread in male-stereotyped disciplines but rarely are studied in the social sciences. To assess the extent that gender influences the behavior of undergraduate ...
Data from: Dumpsters and other human structures as habitat for invasive African rock agama lizards in Florida
Invasive species often use habitat differently than native species and can benefit by using underutilized habitats during the invasion process. The Peter’s Rock Agama (Agama picticauda) — native to savannahs of sub-Saharan ...
Heat-induced maternal effects shapes avian eggshell traits and embryo response to high temperatures
Populations without a sufficient rate of genetic adaptation may risk extinction in the face of rapid environmental change, however, phenotypic plasticity can facilitate their persistence. For example, mothers can prepare ...
Images of natural comb
Data for A chromosome-level genome assembly for the Eastern Fence Lizard (Sceloporus undulatus), a reptile model for physiological and evolutionary ecology
Background: High-quality genomic resources facilitate investigations into behavioral ecology, morphological and physiological adaptations, and the evolution of genomic architecture. Lizards in the genus Sceloporus have a ...
Fishes of the Streams of Acadia National Park, Maine
Acadia National Park (ANP) is a non-continuous conglomerate of park lands interspersed with private lands, which is located mainly on Mount Desert Island, ME. Surveys of fishes in ANP have largely ignored or under-sampled ...
