Recent study of earthquake wave propagation and its decay across eastern India.

Recent study of earthquake wave propagation and its decay across eastern India, Himalaya and southern Tibet, reveal (a) strong frequency dependence and (b) lateral variations dependent on the heterogeneity in the underlying crustal structure.

Retromer retrieves the Wilson disease protein ATP7B from endolysosomes in a copper-dependent manner.

Determined the molecular mechanism by which Cu-ATPase ATP7B, the Wilson disease protein is recycled to Trans Golgi Network (TGN) from active acid hydrolyase positive endo-lysosomes in a retromer dependent way.

The First-order Mott Transition in V2O3 has Traits of Second Order Transitions.

This work shows that the strongly hysteretic first-order phase transition in V2O3, and possibly other similar materials with long-ranged interactions, can have features usually associated with second-order transitions
