  • Bouchard, Bertrand; Barnagaud, Jean-Yves; Poupard, Marion; Glotin, Hervé; Gauffier, Pauline; Torres Ortiz, Sara; Lisney, Thomas J.; Campagna, Sylvie; Rasmussen, Marianne; Célérier, Aurélie (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2019-02-26)
    Baleen whales face the challenge of finding patchily distributed food in the open ocean. Their relatively well-developed olfactory structures suggest that they could identify the specific odours given off by planktonic prey such as krill aggregations. ...
  • Loftsdóttir, Kristín (De Gruyter, 2017)
    The discussion draws from recent writing on the meaning of ‘whiteness’ in the Nordic countries, emphasizing the importance to understand racialization in different localities. Racism is entangled with affective meanings related to discourse of the ...

    Background: Overweight status and asthma have increased during the last decades. Being overweight is a known risk factor for asthma, but it is not known whether it might also increase asthma risk in the next generation. Objective: We aimed to examine ...
  • Juliusson, Haraldur Y.; Segler, Anna-Lena J.; Sigurdsson, Snorri (Wiley, 2019-06-17)
    Oligonucleotides containing nitroxide spin labels, used in biophysical studies of nucleic acids, are frequently prepared by chemical synthesis. However, during the synthesis of spin‐labeled oligonucleotides, the nitroxides are partially reduced to the ...

    Background: β-adrenergic signaling has been implicated in the pathology of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but the evidence from clinical studies is limited. In this national population-based cohort study, we investigated the possible association of ...

    Eiginnafnið Ester (Esther) er áhugavert af ýmsum ástæðum. Í þessari grein er skýrt frá beygingarsögu nafnsins. Fjallað er um eftirfarandi atriði: 1. Nafnið Ester kemur fyrst fyrir í Guðbrandsbiblíu (1584), fyrstu íslensku Biblíuútgáfunni 2. Í ...

    Growth in sodium chloride (NaCl) is known to induce stress in non-halophilic microorganisms leading to effects on the microbial metabolism and cell structure. Microorganisms have evolved a number of adaptations, both structural and metabolic, to ...
  • Hasanzadeh, Kamyar; Czepkiewicz, Michał; Heinonen, Jukka; Kyttä, Marketta; Ala-Mantila, Sanna; Ottelin, Juudit (Center for Transportation Studies, 2019-02-21)
    Activity space (AS) is a measure of spatial behavior used to summarize the mobility behavior of individuals. Current studies often highlight the fact that AS is highly complex and multidimensional in character. Therefore, the need for more holistic ...
  • Grétarsdóttir, Helga M.; Björnsdóttir, Elín; Bjornsson, Einar (S. Karger AG, 2018-06-15)
    We describe a case of acute liver injury and migratory arthralgia in a patient receiving bicalutamide treatment for prostate cancer. A 67-year-old male with metastatic prostate cancer presented with a 6-day history of migratory arthralgia. He had been ...
  • Holley, Guillaume; Melsted, Páll (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-09-17)
    Memory consumption of de Bruijn graphs is often prohibitive. Most de Bruijn graph-based assemblers reduce the complexity by compacting paths into single vertices, but this is challenging as it requires the uncompacted de Bruijn graph to be available ...
  • Caputo, Andrea; Zavala Franco, Jesus; Blas, Diego (Elsevier BV, 2018-03)
    As a binary pulsar moves through a wind of dark matter particles, the resulting dynamical friction modifies the binary’s orbit. We study this effect for the double disk dark matter (DDDM) scenario, where a fraction of the dark matter is dissipative ...
  • Sandholt, Gunnar Birgir; Stefánsson, Bjarki; Scheving, Reynir; Guðmundsdóttir Ágústa (Elsevier BV, 2019-03-15)
    Atlantic cod trypsin ZT is biochemically characterized for the first time in this report in comparison to a group I trypsin (cod trypsin I). To our knowledge, trypsin ZT is the first thoroughly characterized group III trypsin. A more detailed understanding ...

  • Brinkhuis, M. A. B.; Brascamp, J. W.; Kristjansson, Arni (SAGE Publications, 2018-11)
    During visual search, selecting a target facilitates search for similar targets in the future, known as search priming. During bistable perception, in turn, perceiving one interpretation facilitates perception of the same interpretation in the future, ...
  • Lowe, David A.; Thorlacius, Larus (Springer Nature, 2018-01)
    Holographic theories representing black holes are expected to exhibit quantum chaos. We argue if the laws of quantum mechanics are expected to hold for observers inside such black holes, then such holographic theories must have a mean field approximation ...
  • Amado, Irene; Sundborg, Bo; Thorlacius, Larus; Wintergerst, Nico (Springer Nature, 2018-03)
    The emergent nature of spacetime geometry and black holes can be directly probed in simple holographic duals of higher spin gravity and tensionless string theory. To this end, we study time dependent thermal correlation functions of gauge invariant ...
