  • Using low-energy electron microscopy, we study Co intercalation under graphene grown on Ir(111). Depending on the rotational domain of graphene on which it is deposited, Co is found intercalated at different locations. While intercalated Co is observed preferentially at the substrate step edges below certain rotational domains, it is mostly found close to wrinkles below other domains. These results indicate that curved regions (near substrate atomic steps and wrinkles) of the graphene sheet facilitate Co intercalation and suggest that the strength of the graphene/Ir interaction determines which pathway is energetically more favorable.
  • The authors have investigated the effects of heme rotational isomerism in sperm-whale carbonmonoxy myoglobin using computational techniques. Several molecular dynamics simulations have been performed for the two rotational isomers A and B, which are related by a 180{degree} rotation around the {alpha}-{gamma} axis of the heme, of sperm-whale carbonmonoxy myoglobin in water. Both neutron diffraction and NMR structures were used as starting structures. In the absence of an experimental structure, the structure of isomer B was generated by rotating the heme in the structure of isomer A. Distortions of the heme from planarity were characterized by normal coordinate structural decompositionmore » and by the angle of twist of the pyrrole rings from the heme plane. The heme distortions of the neutron diffraction structure were conserved in the MD trajectories, but in the NMR-based trajectories, where the heme distortions are less well defined, they differ from the original heme deformations. The protein matrix induced similar distortions on the heroes in orientations A and B. The results suggest that the binding site prefers a particular macrocycle conformation, and a 180{degree} rotation of the heme does not significantly alter the protein's preference for this conformation. The intrinsic rotational strengths of the two Soret transitions, separated according to their polarization in the heme plane, show strong correlations with the ruf-deformation and the average twist angle of the pyrrole rings. The total rotational strength, which includes contributions from the chromophores in the protein, shows a weaker correlation with heme distortions.« less
  • This paper reports on NMR-molecular mechanics structural studies of the (-)-trans-anti-benzo[c]phenanthrene-dA adduct positioned opposite dT in the sequence context of the d(C1-T2-C3-T4-C5-[BPh]A6-C7-T8-T9-C10-C11){center_dot}d(G12-G13-A14-A15-G16-T17-G18-A19-G20-A21-G22) duplex (designated as the (-)-trans-anti-[BPh]dA6{center_dot}dT 11-mer duplex). This adduct is derived from the covalent binding of (-)-1,2-dihydroxy-3,4-epoxy- 1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-benzo[c]phenanthrene[(-)-anti-BPhDE] to N{sup 6} of dA6 in this duplex sequence. The benzo[c]phenanthrenyl and nucleic acid exchangeable and nonexchangeable protons were assigned in the predominant conformation following analysis of two-dimensional NMR data sets in H{sub 2}O and D{sub 2}O buffer solution. The solution structure of the (-)-trans-anti-[BPh]dA{center_dot}dT 11-mer duplex has been determined by incorporating intramolecular and carcinogen-DNA proton-proton distances defined by lowermore » an upper bounds deduced from NOESY data sets as restraints in molecular mechanics computations in torsion angle space. 52 refs., 9 figs., 2 tabs.« less
  • The signatures of local distortions in three-dimensional crystalline structures are studied by calculating extended x-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) spectra and pair distribution functions (PDF) from a binary system with several different concentrations of randomly distributed radial, rotational, or buckling static distortions. The PDF and EXAFS are examined to determine if unique signatures for the different distortions can be obtained. It is shown how the complementarity of the PDF and EXAFS data can be used to effectively separate the radial from the rotational local distortions. {copyright} {ital 1998} {ital The American Physical Society}
  • A method is developed which allows an efficient and accurate investigation of the structure and evolution of a rotationally and tidally distorted star in a close binary system. The method involves no division into different approximation regimes, and the structure equations are written in essentially the same form as the one for spherical stars. The explicit effects of the distortions are included through basically just one correction factor which can be readily calculated. We also discuss in some detail the envelope integration in the case of superradiabatic convection. Models for zero-age main-sequence stars of 2, 1, and 0.65 M/sub sun/more » are computed as a check on our formulation and compared with those obtained using other methods.« less
