Use of a single glycine residue to determine the tilt and orientation of a transmembrane helix : A new structural label for infrared spectroscopy
Site-directed dichroism is an emerging technique for the determination of membrane protein structure. However, due to a number of factors, among which is the high natural abundance of C-13, the use of this technique has ...
A comparison of modelling methods for forecasting light leaf spot (Pyrenopeziza brassicae) on winter oilseed rape in the UK
(British Crop Protection Council, 2000-11)
Cloning and functional expression of a human orthologue of the rat vanilloid receptor-1
Capsaicin, resiniferatoxin, protons or heat have been shown to activate an ion channel, termed the rat vanilloid receptor-1 (rVR1), originally isolated by expression cloning for a capsaicin sensitive phenotype. Here we ...
Relationships between phoma leaf spot and development of stem canker (Leptosphaeria maculans) on winter oilseed rape (Brassica napus) in southern England
Models were constructed to describe the relationships between incidence of phoma leaf spot at different growth stages in autumn/winter or early spring and incidence of stem canker (basal canker or stem lesions) in summer ...
The electrostability and electrically assisted delivery of an organophosphate pretreatment (physostigmine) across human skin in vitro
Physostigmine is a tertiary carbamate that is utilised as a pretreatment against organophosphate intoxication. Oral delivery of physostigmine is not practical due to high first pass metabolism and short Elimination half ...
Effects of temperature and wetness duration on conidial infection, latent period and asexual sporulation of Pyrenopeziza brassicae on leaves of oilseed rape
Experiments in controlled environments were carried out to determine the effects of temperature and leaf wetness duration on infection of oilseed rape leaves by conidia of the light leaf spot pathogen, Pyrenopeziza brassicae. ...
Fractalkine cleavage from neuronal membranes represents an acute event in the inflammatory response to excitotoxic brain damage
Fractalkine is a recently identified chemokine that exhibits cell adhesion and chemoattractive properties. It represents a unique member of the chemokine superfamily because it is located predominantly in the brain in which ...
Non-invasive quantification of skin injury resulting from exposure to sulphur mustard and Lewisite vapours
The severity and progression of skin lesions resulting from exposure to the chemical warfare agents Lewisite (L) and sulphur mustard (SM) have been investigated using the non-invasive biophysical methods of evaporimetry ...
Early defibrillation and the chain of survival in 'in-hospital' adult cardiac arrest; minutes count
Objective: To report the outcomes from and the impact of the chain of survival in ‘in-hospital’ cardiac arrest where the presenting rhythm was VF/VT, the arrest was witnessed, defibrillation was conducted rapidly and no ...
