Isolation and characterisation of the mating-type (MAT) locus from Rhynchosporium secalis
The mating-type (MAT) genes from Rhynchosporium secalis were isolated using PCR-based methods. Characterisation of the MAT idiomorphs suggests that R. secalis is closely related to the discomycetes Pyrenopeziza brassicae ...
Children’s Attitudes to Sustainable Transport. Research Findings No.174/2003
(Scottish Executive, 2003-12-15)
The Scottish Executive commissioned research on children's and young people's attitudes towards sustainable transport and transport choice and how these attitudes are developed by schools, the informal education sector, ...
Effects of temperature on maturation of pseudothecia of Leptosphaeria maculans and L-biglobosa on oilseed rape stem debris
Effects of temperature on maturation of pseudothecia of Leptosphaeria maculans and L. biglobosa, closely related species which coexist on UK oilseed rape, were investigated. Stages in pseudothecial maturation on naturally ...
Survival of A-group and B-group Leptosphaeria maculans (phoma stem canker) ascospores in air and mycelium on oilseed rape stem debris
Mycelium of Leptosphaeria maculans survived on oilseed rape stem base debris buried in sand for 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 or 12 months and produced pseudothecia after subsequent exposure on the surface of the ground under natural ...
Development of a recombinant antibody ELISA test for the detection of Polymyxa betae and its use in resistance screening
An ELISA test was developed for the quantitative detection of the obligate parasite Polymyxa betae, the vector of Beet necrotic yellow vein virus (BNYVV), in infected sugarbeet roots. The test used monoclonal and polyclonal ...
Insecticide resistance: from science to practice.
Meteorological and land use controls on past and present hydro-geomorphic processes in the pre-alpine environment : an integrated lake-catchment study at the Petit Lac d'Annecy, France
A wide range of environmental records is integrated in order to reconstruct the mechanisms of flooding and sediment transport within the 170 km(2) Petit Lac catchment, Annecy, France, over time scales of 10(-1) to 10(2) ...
Choosing not to dialyse : evaluation of planned non-dialytic management in a cohort of patients with end-stage renal failure
OBJECTIVES: To study factors influencing the recommendation for palliative (non-dialytic) treatment in patients approaching end-stage renal failure and to study the subsequent outcome in patients choosing not to dialyse. ...
3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (ecstasy) inhibits dyskinesia expression and normalizes motor activity in 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine-treated primates
Ecstasy [3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA)] was shown to prolong the action of L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (L-DOPA) while suppressing dyskinesia in a single patient with Parkinson's disease (PD). The clinical basis ...
