- Octahedral palladium nanoparticles as excellent hosts for electrochemically adsorbed and absorbed hydrogen
Palladium nanoparticles develop a structure composed of core, shell, and skin, each having its unique H loading and properties.
We simulate a random process using a photonic quantum processor with less memory than an ordinary computer would require.
- Historical ecology and the conservation of large, hermaphroditic fishes in Pacific Coast kelp forest ecosystems
Zooarchaeological data are essential for rethinking conservation policies of hermaphroditic fish and building sustainable fisheries.
Early Neolithic (~7700-year-old) genetic data from the Russian Far East implies a high level of genetic continuity in this region.
- Interactions between demography and environmental effects are important determinants of population dynamics
Warmer winters alter the dynamics of a local bird population and reduce immigration rate due to density-dependent feedback.
- The structurally disordered paramyxovirus nucleocapsid protein tail domain is a regulator of the mRNA transcription gradient
This study identifies and characterizes a novel regulatory mechanism involved in controlling measles virus gene expression.
High-performance quasi–solid state Na-CO2 batteries are constructed with polymer electrolyte and a reduced graphene oxide Na anode.

- Determination of band offsets, hybridization, and exciton binding in 2D semiconductor heterostructures
Photoemission measurements on exfoliated 2D heterostructures reveal detailed electronic structure and hybridization effects.
- Biophysical properties of human β-cardiac myosin with converter mutations that cause hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
Converter HCM mutations cause only small changes in the biophysics of myosin, suggesting an alternative mechanism for hypercontractility.
Evolutionary selection fine-tunes conformational ensembles of FimH for optimal bladder colonization by E. coli during UTI.
- State dependence of climatic instability over the past 720,000 years from Antarctic ice cores and climate modeling
Global cooling in intermediate glacial climate with northern ice sheets preconditions climatic instability with bipolar seesaw.
- Coordinated infraslow neural and cardiac oscillations mark fragility and offline periods in mammalian sleep
Mammalian sleep alternates between sensory-responsive and protected offline periods via coordinated neural and cardiac rhythms.
- Seeing is believing: Visualization of He distribution in zircon and implications for thermal history reconstruction on single crystals
Inverse modeling of intracrystal (U-Th)/(Pb-He) abundances in individual zircons constrains the thermal history of Earth’s crust.
Both habitat diversity and species diversity are important factors in ecosystem productivity and nutrient cycling.
- Structural transitions and guest/host complexing of liquid crystal helical nanofilaments induced by nanoconfinement
A perfectly aligned liquid crystal phase can be achieved by an interaction with helical nanofilament under nanoconfinement.
- Hypoxia causes preservation of labile organic matter and changes seafloor microbial community composition (Black Sea)
Hypoxia enhances organic matter preservation in marine sediments by changing benthic communities, bioturbation, and burial rates.
- High performance of a cobalt–nitrogen complex for the reduction and reductive coupling of nitro compounds into amines and their derivatives
The cobalt–nitrogen catalyst shows high activity for selective reduction of nitro compounds with H2 and other hydrogen donors.
Age-associated molecular changes are deleterious and causally linked with aging and may affect life span through diet.
Subcellular-sized, ultraflexible electrodes form seamless integration with the living brain and afford chronically reliable recording.
- Scaffolding bacterial genomes and probing host-virus interactions in gut microbiome by proximity ligation (chromosome capture) assay
Two proximity ligation approaches are used to probe the gut’s phage-bacteria infection network using Meta3C and GRAAL scaffolding.
A new marine fossil assemblage from the Early Triassic shows unexpected phyletic diversity and functional complexity.
