    • Ablating the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) in CD11c+ cells perturbs intestinal epithelium development and intestinal immunity 

      Chng, Song Hui; Kundu, Parag; Dominguez-Brauer, Carmen; Teo, Wei Ling; Kawajiri, Kaname; Fujii-Kuriyama, Yoshiaki; Mak, Tak Wah; Pettersson, Sven (2016)
      Diet and microbiome derived indole derivatives are known to activate the ligand induced transcription factor, the Aryl hydrocarbon Receptor (AhR). While the current understanding of AhR biology has confirmed its role in ...
    • Ablation morphology and ablation threshold of Ti-6Al-4V alloy during femtosecond laser processing 

      Maharjan, Niroj; Zhou, Wei; Zhou, Yu; Guan, Yingchun (2018)
      The research explores the use of femtosecond laser to clean the surface of Ti-6Al-4V alloy. The laser ablation threshold was determined from either depths or diameters of laser-induced craters. Both methods are expected ...
    • Abnormal event detection in crowded scenes using sparse representation 

      Cong, Yang; Yuan, Junsong; Liu, Ji (2013)
      We propose to detect abnormal events via a sparse reconstruction over the normal bases. Given a collection of normal training examples, e.g., an image sequence or a collection of local spatio-temporal patches, we propose ...
    • Abnormal N-heterocyclic carbene gold(I) complexes : synthesis, structure, and catalysis in hydration of alkynes 

      Xu, Xiangya; Kim, Seung Hyo; Zhang, Xi; Das, Atanu Kumar; Hirao, Hajime; Hong, Soon Hyeok (2013)
      Two abnormal N-heterocyclic carbene (aNHC) gold(I) complexes, [(aNHC)AuCl], were prepared from C2-protected imidazolium salts. The air-stable complexes chloro(1-isopropyl-3-methyl-2,4-diphenylimidazol-5-ylidene)gold(I) (5) ...
    • Abnormal Poisson's ratio and linear compressibility in perovskite materials 

      Huang, C. W.; Ren, Wei; Nguyen, Viet Cuong; Chen, Zuhuang; Wang, Junling; Sritharan, Thirumany; Chen, Lang (2012)
      The Poisson's ratio of perovskites with a high degree of anisotropy can change from negative to positive and become much larger than the normally observed range of 0.2–0.4 and even greater than the isotropic upper limit ...
    • Abolishing Indonesia's direct local elections : missing the forest for the trees? 

      Chen, Jonathan; Priamarizki, Adhi (2014)
      The Indonesian House of Representatives is due to pass a bill ending direct elections of local leaders, leaving the selection process to legislators in regional parliaments. Is such a move missing the forest for the trees?
    • Aborting TPP: will US global leadership be crippled? 

      Arunajeet, Kaur (2016)
      Apart from facilitating global trade between US and its Asia-Pacific partners, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) also seeks to promote better governance and human security. However the declared US intention to abort the ...
    • About TreeTorika: Rhetoric, CAAC and Mao 

      Lindborg, PerMagnus (Editions Delatour France, 2008)
      This chapter examines computer assisted analysis and composition (CAAC) techniques in relation to the composition of my piece TreeTorika for chamber orchestra. I describe methods for analysing the musical features of a ...
    • An About-Face to the Future: the SAF's New Career Schemes 

      Ho, Shu Huang (2009)
      The SAF’s new Enhanced Officers’ Career Scheme (EOCS) extends the retirement age of its regular commissioned officers by five years. Does this suggest an earlier miscalculation in the previous manpower policy set in 1998?
    • Above and below the surface: Genetic and cultural factors in the development of values 

      Dellantonio, Sara; Pastore, Luigi; Esposito, Gianluca (2017)
      In the Attitude–Scenario–Emotion (ASE) model, social relationships are subpersonnally realized by sentiments: a network of emotions/attitudes representing relational values. We discuss how relational values differ from ...
    • Above and belowground community strategies respond to different global change drivers 

      Adair, Karen L.; Lindgreen, Stinus; Poole, Anthony M.; Young, Laura M.; Bernard-Verdier, Maud; Wardle, David A.; Tylianakis, Jason M. (2019)
      Environmental changes alter the diversity and structure of communities. By shifting the range of species traits that will be successful under new conditions, environmental drivers can also dramatically impact ecosystem ...
    • Absence of collapse in quantum Rabi oscillations 

      He, Shu; Zhao, Yang; Chen, Qing-Hu (2014)
      We show analytically that the collapse and revival in the population dynamics of the atom-cavity coupled system under the rotating wave approximation (RWA), valid only at very weak coupling, is an artifact as the atom-cavity ...
    • Absence of intestinal PPARγ aggravates acute infectious colitis in mice through a Lipocalin-2–dependent pathway 

      Kundu, Parag; Ling, Teo Wei; Korecka, Agata; Li, Yinghui; D'Arienzo, Rossana; Bunte, Ralph M.; Berger, Thorsten; Arulampalam, Velmurugesan; Chambon, Pierre; Mak, Tak Wah; Wahli, Walter; Pettersson, Sven (2014)
      To be able to colonize its host, invading Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium must disrupt and severely affect host-microbiome homeostasis. Here we report that S. Typhimurium induces acute infectious colitis by inhibiting ...
    • Absorption-spectral features of single-walled carbon nanotubes 

      Zhao, Yang; Wang, Xiujun; Ma, Chi Chiu; Chen, Guan Hua (2004)
      We present a visual, intuitive connection between optical absorption line shapes and the underlying carbon nanotube structures. Within the tight-binding model, the absorption spectra can be linked directly ...
    • Abstract : mapping streaming applications onto GPU systems 

      Huynh, Huynh Phung.; Hagiescu, Andrei.; Wong, Weng-Fai.; Goh, Rick Siow Mong.; Ray, A. (2012)
      We describe an efficient and scalable code generation framework that automatically maps general purpose streaming applications onto GPU systems. This architecture-driven framework takes into account the idiosyncrasies of ...
    • ABT-199, a potent and selective BCL-2 inhibitor, achieves antitumor activity while sparing platelets 

      Souers, Andrew J.; Leverson, Joel D.; Boghaert, Erwin R.; Ackler, Scott L.; Catron, Nathaniel D.; Chen, Jun; Dayton, Brian D.; Ding, Hong; Enschede, Sari H.; Fairbrother, Wayne J.; Huang, David C.

      Proteins in the B cell CLL/lymphoma 2 (BCL-2) family are key regulators of the apoptotic process. This family comprises proapoptotic and prosurvival proteins, and shifting the balance toward the latter is an established ...
    • Abu Bakar Bashir : Jihad or tyranny of leadership? 

      Muhammad Haniff Hassan; Mohamed Redzuan Salleh (2008)
      Abu Bakar Bashir resigned from the Indonesian Mujahidin Council (MMI) recently, claiming that its leadership system was unislamic. Did he get it right this time?
    • Abu Bakar Bashir resigns from the Indonesian Mujahidin Council: what now? 

      V. Arianti; Fatima Astuti (2008)
      The Indonesian Mujahidin Council (MMI) has decided to accept the resignation of Abu Bakar Bashir, their leader. Some argue MMI will be crippled as Bashir could draw away most of its members. Will we see increased radicalisation ...
    • Abu Bakar Bashir's imprisonment : what next? 

      Muhammad Haniff Hassan; Nur Azlin Yasin (2011)
      The conviction of Abu Bakar Bashir is an important milestone in the fight against violent radicals in Indonesia. However, its effect on the radicalisation problem on the ground may not be significant unless Bashir’s influence ...
    • Abu Musab Al Zarqawi : a new generation terrorist leader 

      Gunaratna, Rohan (2004)
      Terrorism's mastermind today is Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, and while he's focused on Iraq for now, the West ignores him at its peril. Washington's increase last week of the bounty on the head of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi from $US10 ...
