Homogenization Techniques for Improving the Calculations of Scattering by 1-D Fast Oscillating Periodic Surfaces
This paper deals with the efficient computation of scattering problems by fast oscillating periodic surfaces using two-scale expansion homogenization techniques. The proposed method splits the field between an effective ...
Transcriptomic analysis reveals metabolic switches and surface remodeling as key processes for stage transition in Trypanosoma cruzi
(PeerJ Inc, 2017)
American trypanosomiasis is a chronic and endemic disease which affects millions of people. Trypanosoma cruzi, its causative agent, has a life cycle that involves complex morphological and functional transitions, as well ...
Melanocytes and melanin represent a first line of innate immunity against Candida albicans
(International Society for Human and Animal Mycology, 2014)
Melanocytes are dendritic cells located in the skin and mucosae that synthesize melanin. Some infections induce hypo- or hyperpigmentation, which is associated with the activation of Toll-like receptors (TLRs), especially ...
