      Species specificity of the complement inhibitor compstatin investigated by all-atom molecular dynamics simulations 

      Tamamis, Phanourios; Morikis, D.; Floudas, C. A.; Archontis, Georgios Z. (2010)
      The development of compounds to regulate the activation of the complement system in non-primate species is of profound interest because it can provide models for human diseases. The peptide compstatin inhibits protein C3 ...

      Specific amino acid recognition by aspartyl-tRNA synthetase studied by free energy simulations 

      Archontis, Georgios Z.; Simonson, T.; Moras, D.; Karplus, M. (1998)
      Specific amino acid binding by aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases is necessary for correct translation of the genetic code. To obtain insight into the origin of the specificity, the binding to aspartyl-tRNA synthetase (AspRS) of ...

      Spectral density ratio based clustering methods for the binary segmentation of protein sequences: A comparative study 

      Ioannou, Androulla; Fokianos, Konstantinos; Promponas, Vasilis J. (2010)
      We compare several spectral domain based clustering methods for partitioning protein sequence data. The main instrument for this exercise is the spectral density ratio model, which specifies that the logarithmic ratio of ...

      Transport of ellipsoid fibers in oscillatory shear flows: Implications for aerosol deposition in deep airways 

      Shachar-Berman, L.; Ostrovski, Y.; Rosis, A. De; Kassinos, Stavros C.; Sznitman, J. (2018)
      It is widely acknowledged that inhaled fibers, e.g. air pollutants and anthropogenic particulate matter, hold the ability to deposit deep into the lungs reaching the distal pulmonary acinar airways as a result of their ...

      The trapped human experiment 

      Huo, R.; Agapiou, Agapios; Bocos-Bintintan, V.; Brown, L. J.; Burns, C.; Creaser, C. S.; Devenport, N. A.; Gao-Lau, B.; Guallar-Hoyas, C.; Hildebrand, L.; Malkar, A.; Martin, H. J.; Moll, V. H.; Patel, P.; Ratiu, A.; Reynolds, J. C.; Sielemann, S.; Slodzynski, R.; Statheropoulos, Miltiades K.; Turner, M. A.; Vautz, W.; Wright, V. E.; Thomas, Charles Lawrence Paul (2011)
      This experiment observed the evolution of metabolite plumes from a human trapped in a simulation of a collapsed building. Ten participants took it in turns over five days to lie in a simulation of a collapsed building and ...
