"Using these simple design rules we are able to create DNA structures that fold and unfold at a specifically desired temperature." "By adding optical reporters to these DNA structures, we can therefore create 5 nm-wide thermometers that produce an easily detectable signal as a function of temperature," adds Arnaud Desrosiers, co-author of this study.
"These plants fold their leaves to protect themselves from dry conditions and cold, and unfold to get the rain they need to grow.
The I27 domains have been shown to unfold at forces of ~200pN and produce an increase in contour length ([DELTA]Lc) of ~29 [+ or -] 8 nm upon unfolding [30].
This mechanism ensures that: a) no H-bond is broken before it is replaced; and b) the barrier for the separation of the folded and the unfolded states is in part kinetically determined and becomes larger as the speed of application of the force increases in agreement with experimental observations.

But in truth the history of Christian-Muslim relations, from its very beginnings until today, has simultaneously unfolded and continues to unfold along both of these major story lines--confrontation and conflict as well as dialogue and cooperation--sometimes running parallel and often intersecting.
All the shoe queens and wannabe monarchs across the whole world are watching the art of Lil' B, Uno, Stunna, and producer Young L unfold.
Capability: The 3-D modeling program TouchCAD 3.5.0 is used to model parts that unfold, such as blimps, balloons, sails, retractable roofs, or sheet-metal parts.
Then, it begins to unfold and expand, transforming into an array of five vertically suspended cabins, each with a capacity to hold 30 evacuees.
In practice, however, many such predictions stem from the student's encounters not with life but with the literary representation of it, representations in which, as noted, events often unfold in a familiar manner.
