In news:

"This is the cell membrane, this is the cytoplasm, this is the nucleus, this is a food vacuole where food is digested, this is a waste product vacuole, these are pseudopods that move around and trap food".
PolyMedix's defensin-mimetics target the digestive vacuole of the parasite that causes malaria, Plasmodium falciparum, via a mechanism distinct from other anti-malarial agents, essentially starving the parasite of food.

In science:

Approaches adopting the Einstein-Strauss method with positive Λ, where the matter in a spherical region collapses to form the lens and the resulting SdS vacuole is matched into a FRW background, were also followed.
The role of Lambda in the cosmological lens equation
Assuming that once the light transitions out of the vacuole all the Λ-bending stops, derived a contribution −Λbrv /3 to the bending, in which rv , the radial SdS coordinate of the vacuole boundary, replaces the coordinate of the observer ro .
The role of Lambda in the cosmological lens equation
This contribution is related to the distance from the vacuole boundary to the lens center and do not spring from coupling effects so that it should be incorporated in the total distance Dd from the observer to the lens.
The role of Lambda in the cosmological lens equation
Finally, integrated the light motion piecewise in a flat FRW solution and in the SdS metric and then pasted the geodesics together at the vacuole radius.
The role of Lambda in the cosmological lens equation
The quantity RES is known as the Einstein-Straus radius in the vacuole model.
