2013 PLoS ONE  
We show that the branched apicoplast signal is entirely abolished by azithromycin treatment, while fosmidomycin had no effect on apicoplast morphology.  ...  Two of these were predicted to target to the mitochondrion, one ISU/ IscU ortholog (PBANKA_131820) and one NFU1/NfuA ortholog (PBANKA_083170).  ...  First, the [Fe-S] cluster is assembled de novo on a scaffold protein.  ...

What can we do on gravity with antihydrogens? [article]

Yasunori Fujii
1998 arXiv   pre-print
We discuss the implications of the proposed gravitational redshift experiment on antihydrogens.  ...  We show that the result should be the same as on hydrogens in spite of different free-fall accelerations (WEP violation) which may occur if there is a vector fifth-force field.  ...  The text-book derivation of the gravitational redshift is a combination of the two steps: (A) Based on the static nature of the setting, one derives ∆t em = ∆t rec , (1) on the intervals of the coordinate  ...

Increasing Need for Uniqueness in Contemporary China: Empirical Evidence

Huajian Cai, Xi Zou, Yi Feng, Yunzhi Liu, Yiming Jing
2018 Frontiers in Psychology  
In two studies, we examine how Chinese people's need for uniqueness (NFU) also has changed. In Study 1, we found a significant crossgenerational increase in Chinese participants' self-reported NFU.  ...  These findings suggest that the NFU has been rising in China, a historically collectivistic-oriented society. Theoretical and practical implications of our findings were discussed.  ...  If younger generations report higher NFU, one possibility is that the NFU has been rising in China. In Study 2, we investigated the change of the Chinese NFU by examining Chinese baby names.  ...

2003 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America
