The disintegrin-like metalloproteinase ADAM 10 is involved in coinstitutive cleavage of CX3CL1 (fractalkine) and regulates CX3CL1-mediated cell-cell adhesion
The CX3C chemokine fractalkine (CX3CL1) exists as a membrane-expressed protein promoting cell-cell adhesion and as a soluble molecule inducing chemotaxis. Transmembrane CX3CL1 is converted into its soluble form by defined ...
Spatio-temporal distributions of Meligethes aeneus and its parasitoids in an oilseed rape crop and their significance for crop protection
The distributions and phenology of Meligethes aeneus and its parasitoids were studied in relation to the potential value of spatio-temporal information for integrated crop management (ICM) and the conservation management ...
Preliminary evaluation of root disease of winter oilseed rape in the UK
During the 2000/1 season, significant variability in the senescence of oilseed rape (OSR) stems was observed in Velcourt-managed fields. These symptoms tend to occur more in the southern part of the country, i.e. Kent and ...
Molecular diagnostics for fungal plant pathogens
Accurate identification of fungal phytopathogens is essential for virtually all aspects of plant pathology, from fundamental research on the biology of pathogens to the control of the diseases they cause. Although molecular ...
A novel approach to the use of genetically modified herbicide tolerant crops for environmental benefit
The proposed introduction of genetically modified herbicide tolerant (GMHT) crops, with claims of improved weed control, has prompted fears about possible environmental impacts of their widespread adoption, particularly ...
