Optically dim counterparts of hard X-ray selected AGNsFeb 24 2000We present near-IR photometry and imaging observations of a small sample of sources identified in the BeppoSAX 5-10 keV survey (HELLAS) which resolves ~ 20-30% of the X-ray background at these energies. The near-IR data are combined with optical spectra ... More

Evidence for Dust Related X-ray Emission from Comet C/1995 O1 (Hale-Bopp)Oct 31 1997We report the discovery of X-ray emission from comet C/1995 O1 (Hale-Bopp) by the LECS instrument on-board BeppoSAX on 1996 September 10--11. The 0.1--2.0 keV luminosity decayed by a factor of 2 on a timescale of ~10 hr with a mean value of 5.10E16 erg ... More

GRB000615 in X-raysApr 07 2001GRB000615 was detected simultaneously by the BeppoSAX GRBM and WFC 1 with a localization uncertainty of 2' (error circle radius). X-ray emission was detected only in the 0.1-4 keV range during a NFI observation started about 10 hours after the trigger ... More

Testing GRB models with the afterglow of GRB 090102Sep 07 2009Mar 04 2010We present the observations of the afterglow of gamma-ray burst GRB 090102. Optical data taken by the TAROT, REM, GROND, together with publicly available data from Palomar, IAC and NOT telescopes, and X-ray data taken by the XRT instrument on board the ... More

α7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor signaling modulates ovine fetal brain astrocytes transcriptome in response to endotoxin: comparison to microglia, implications for prenatal stress and development of autism spectrum disorderDec 17 2018Dec 31 2018Neuroinflammation in utero may result in lifelong neurological disabilities. Astrocytes play a pivotal role, but the mechanisms are poorly understood. No early postnatal treatment strategies exist to enhance neuroprotective potential of astrocytes. We ... More
