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, ...
Insecticide resistance: from science to practice.
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 ...
Interactions between bacteria and plant-parasitic nematodes : now and then
Based on genome-to-genome analyses of gene sequences obtained from plant-parasitic, root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.), it seems likely that certain genes have been derived from bacteria by horizontal gene transfer. ...
CCR2: Characterization of the antagonist binding site from a combined receptor modeling/mutagenesis approach
We describe here a classical molecular modeling exercise that was carried out to provide a basis for the design of novel antagonist ligands of the CCR2 receptor. Using a theoretical model of the CCR2 receptor, docking ...
Antioxidant and free radical scavenging activity of isoflavone metabolites
1. Soy isoflavones have been extensively studied because of their possible health-promoting effects. Genistein and daidzein, the major isoflavone aglycones, have received most attention; however, they undergo extensive ...
Toxicological and molecular characterisation of pyrethroid knockdown resistance (kdr) in the peach-potato aphids, Myzus persicae (sulzer)
(Ecole Nationale Superieure Agronomique de Rennes (ENSAR), 2003-09)
Whole-Genome Analysis of 60 G Protein-Coupled Receptors in Caenorhabditis elegans by Gene Knockout with RNAi
G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are the largest family of genes in animal genomes and represent more than 2% of genes in humans and C. elegans. These evolutionarily conserved seven-transmembrane proteins transduce a ...
