In this work, we utilize spatial complexity of hydropathic effects toward predicting which NaV1.7 variants cause pain (and which are neutral) based on the location of corresponding mutation sites within  ...  Predicting in silico the phenotype of NaV1.7 variant is of major clinical importance; it can aid in reducing costs of in vitro pathophysiological characterization of NaV1.7 variants, as well as, in the  ...  Following [59, 61] , this study aims at probing the finely-tuned hypothesis for the NaV1.7's atomic hydropathic environment towards predicting whether a NaV1.7 variant causes pain or not.  ...

Furthermore, bio-based methods for nanomaterial synthesis are inherently "green", enabling low-cost and scalable production of nanomaterials under benign conditions in aqueous solutions.  ...  Increasing energy needs have accelerated the demand for renewable alternatives to petroleum-based fuels; engineered microbes for the production of biofuels have the potential to fulfill these energy needs  ...  Multi-protein complexes formed at the origin of transfer (oriT) region of DNA and at the cytoplasmic membrane of the bacterial cell, initiate this process.  ...
