Single molecule study of cellulase hydrolysis of crystalline cellulose preprint ( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Cellobiohydrolase-I (CBH I), a processive exoglucanase secreted by Trichoderma reesei, is one of the key enzyme components in a commercial cellulase mixture currently used for processing biomass to biofuels. CBH I contains a family 7 glycoside hydrolase catalytic module, a family 1 carbohydrate-binding module (CBM), and a highly-glycosylated linker peptide. It has been proposed that the CBH I cellulase initiates the hydrolysis from the reducing end of one cellulose chain and successively cleaves alternate ß-1,4-glycosidic bonds to release cellobiose as its principal end product. The role each module of CBH I plays in the processive hydrolysis of crystalline cellulose has yet to be convincingly elucidated. In this report, we use a single-molecule approach that combines optical (total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy or TIRF-M) and non-optical (atomic force microscopy or AFM) imaging techniques to analyze the molecular motion of CBM tagged with green fluorescence protein (GFP) and to investigate the surface structure of crystalline cellulose and changes made in the structure by CBM and CBH I. Preliminary results reveal a confined nanometer-scale movement of the TrCBM1-GFP bound to cellulose, decreases in cellulose crystal size, and increases in surface roughness during CBH I hydrolysis of crystalline cellulose

Computed tomography : principles, design, artifacts, and recent advances by Jiang Hsieh ( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
X-ray computed tomography (CT) continues to experience rapid growth, both in basic technology and new clinical applications. Seven years after its first edition, Computed Tomography: Principles, Design, Artifacts, and Recent Advancements, Second Edition, provides an overview of the evolution of CT, the mathematical and physical aspects of the technology, and the fundamentals of image reconstruction algorithms. Image display is examined from traditional methods used through the most recent advancements. Key performance indices, theories behind the measurement methodologies, and different measurement phantoms in image quality are discussed. The CT scanner is broken down into components to provide the reader with an understanding of their function, their latest advances, and their impact on the CT system. General descriptions and different categories of artifacts, their causes, and their corrections are considered at length

Optical design of microscopes by George Seward ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Knowledge of microscope design is rapidly becoming more important. Microscopes are used in critical applications such as drug development, clinical tests, and genomics. Considerable expertise is required for the evaluation, design, and manufacture of these instruments. Several subsystems must be integrated: the source, the illumination optics, the specimen, the objective lens, the tube optics, and the sensor. The large numerical aperture of a microscope is essential for small spot size and high brightness; however, the large numerical aperture also presents difficult issues in optical design and fabrication. This book provides a foundation for developing design expertise through education, practice, and exploration. It is suitable for lens designers, optical engineers, and students with a basic knowledge of microscope structure

Hadamard transforms by S. S Agaian ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Hadamard matrix and Hadamard transform are fundamental problem-solving tools in a wide spectrum of scientific disciplines and technologies, such as communication systems, signal and image processing (signal representation, coding, filtering, recognition, and watermarking), digital logic (Boolean function analysis and synthesis), and fault-tolerant system design. Hadamard Transforms intends to bring together different topics concerning current developments in Hadamard matrices, transforms, and their applications. Each chapter begins with the basics of the theory, progresses to more advanced topics, and then discusses cutting-edge implementation techniques. The book covers a wide range of problems related to these matrices/transforms, formulates open questions, and points the way to potential advancements. Hadamard Transforms is suitable for a wide variety of audiences, including graduate students in electrical and computer engineering, mathematics, or computer science. Readers are not presumed to have a sophisticated mathematical background, but some mathematical background is helpful. This book will prepare readers for further exploration and will support aspiring researchers in the field
