N. ; et al Solution Structures and Dynamic Assembly of the 24-Meric Plasmodial Pdx1–Pdx2 Complex International journal of molecular sciences 21(17), 5971 (2020) [10.3390/ijms21175971]   Plasmodium species are protozoan parasites causing the deadly malaria disease. They have developed effective resistance mechanisms against most antimalarial medication, causing an urgent need to identify new antimalarial drug targets [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2023-02-0612:54 [PUBDB-2023-00666] Journal Article Klinger, M. ; Tak, D. ; Taylor, A. M. ; et al Probing the multiwavelength emission scenario of GRB 190114C [arXiv:2206.11148] Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society 520(1), 839 - 849 (2023) [10.1093/mnras/stad142]   Multiwavelength observation of the gamma-ray burst, GRB 190114C, opens a new window for studying the emission mechanism of GRB afterglows. Its very high energy (VHE; ≳ 100 GeV) detection has motivated an inverse Compton interpretation for the emission, but this has not been tested.

These circuits must undergo a strict quality control process, composed of functional testing and visual inspection, before they can be assembled into modules.

Here, we describe a method using exceptionally narrow absorption features in the soft x-ray range [...] OpenAccess: Hoesch_2022_J._Phys. _Conf._Ser._2380_012086 - PDF PDF (PDFA); prepring_manuscript - PDF PDF (PDFA); 2023-02-0315:48 [PUBDB-2023-00647] Journal Article Gay, J. ; Ledoux, E. ; Krug, M. ; et al Transformation microstructures in pyrolite under stress: Implications for anisotropy in subducting slabs below the 660 km discontinuity Earth and planetary science letters 604, 118015 (2023) [10.57745/I0J6LZ]   The ‘660’ discontinuity is often associated with a phase transitions in pyrolite at about 24 GPa. There are ubiquitous reports of seismic anisotropy below the ‘660’ which are difficult to explain from a mineralogical point of view.

Pre-clustering data sets using cluster4x improves the signal-to-noise ratio of high-throughput crystallography drug-screening analysis. Acta crystallographica / Section D 76(Pt 11), 1134 - 1144 (2020) [10.1107/S2059798320012619]   Drug and fragment screening at X-ray crystallography beamlines has been a huge success. However, it is inevitable that more high-profile biological drug targets will be identified for which high-quality, highly homogenous crystal systems cannot be found.

R. ; Alhayek, A. ; et al Identification of a 1-deoxy-D-xylulose-5-phosphate synthase (DXS) mutant with improved crystallographic properties   In this report, we describe a truncated Deinococcus radiodurans 1-deoxy-D-xylulose-5-phosphate synthase (DXS) protein that retains enzymatic activity, while slowing protein degradation and showing improved crystallization properties. With modern drug-design approaches relying heavily on the elucidation of atomic interactions of potential new drugs with their targets, the need for co-crystal structures with the compounds of interest is high [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2023-02-0313:27 [PUBDB-2023-00644] Journal Article Ketenoglu, D. Distinctive applications of synchrotron radiation based X-ray Raman scattering spectroscopy: a minireview Instrumentation science & technology 49(4), 376 - 394 (2021) [10.1080/10739149.2020.1864742]   Third-generation synchrotron radiation sources with improving new techniques provide opportunities to perform many promising experiments. X-ray Raman scattering (XRS) is one of the synchrotron radiation based techniques for the investigation of soft X-ray absorption edges (∼50-1000 eV) using hard X-rays (∼10 keV).

Under photocatalytic operation conditions, the structure of the molecular titanium alkoxide precursor rearranges upon hydrolysis and leads to higher connectivity of the structure-building units [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2023-02-0313:23 [PUBDB-2023-00642] Journal Article Eckermann, M. ; van der Meer, F. ; Cloetens, P. ; et al Three-dimensional virtual histology of the cerebral cortex based on phase-contrast X-ray tomography Biomedical optics express 12(12), 7582 - 7598 (2021) [10.1364/BOE.434885]   In this work, we optimize the setups and experimental parameters of X-ray phase-contrast computed-tomography for the three-dimensional imaging of the cyto- and myeloarchitecture of cerebral cortex, including both human and murine tissue. We present examples for different optical configurations using state-of-the art synchrotron instruments for holographic tomography, as well as compact laboratory setups for phase-contrast tomography in the direct contrast (edge-enhancement) regime [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA);
