Doing interdisciplinarity : motivation and collaboration in research for sustainable agriculture in the UK
This paper studies knowledge production in complex, collaborative research projects that brought together academics from different disciplines, research users and agricultural businesses. It takes a comparative approach, ...
The application of Gaussian processes in the prediction of percutaneous absorption
Objectives The aim was to assess mathematically the nature of a skin permeability dataset and to determine the utility of Gaussian processes in developing a predictive model for skin permeability, comparing it with existing ...
Characterisation of the Interaction of Lactate Dehydrogenase With Tween-20 Using Isothermal Titration Calorimetry, Interfacial Rheometry and Surface Tension Measurements
In this study the nature of the interaction between Tween-20 and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) was investigated using isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC). In addition the effects of the protein and surfactant on the ...
Fluctuations in Number of Cercospora beticola Conidia in Relationship to Environment and Disease Severity in Sugar Beet
Cercospora leaf spot, caused by Cercospora beticola, is the most damaging foliar disease of sugar beet in Minnesota (MN) and North Dakota (ND). Research was conducted to characterize the temporal progression of aerial ...
WNT signaling regulates self-renewal and differentiation of prostate cancer cells with stem cell characteristics
Prostate cancer cells with stem cell characteristics were identified in human prostate cancer cell lines by their ability to form from single cells self-renewing prostaspheres in non-adherent cultures. Prostaspheres exhibited ...
Bidirectional transport of amino acids regulates mTOR and autophagy
Amino acids are required for activation of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) kinase which regulates protein translation, cell growth, and autophagy. Cell surface transporters that allow amino acids to enter the cell ...
Mutation in acetylcholinesterase1 associated with triazophos resistance in rice stem borer, Chilo suppressalis (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)
Two full-length genes encoding different acetylcholinesterases (AChEs), designated as Ch-ace1 and Ch-ace2 were cloned from strains of the rice stern borer (Chilo suppressalis) susceptible and resistant to the organophosphate ...
