Development of a decision support system for phoma and light leaf spot in winter oilseed rape (PASSWORD project)
Pests and diseases in winter oilseed rape cause serious loss of yield and quality. Losses, predominantly from diseases, are estimated to exceed £80 million/annum in some years. These losses have occurred despite an annual ...
Oxalate production by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum deregulates guard cells during infection.
Oxalic acid is a virulence factor of several phytopathogenic fungi, including Sclerotinia sclerotiorum (Lib.) de Bary, but the detailed mechanisms by which oxalic acid affects host cells and tissues are not understood. We ...
Decision making in controlling virus yellows of sugar beet in the UK
Virus yellows is an important disease affecting yield in sugar beet in the UK. Myzus persicae (Sulzer) is the most effective and efficient aphid vector of the three viruses causing the disease: beet yellows virus, beet ...
The ‘EDHF’ Antagonist 14, 15 Epoxyeicosa-5(Z)-Enoic Acid has Vasodilator Properties in Mesenteric Vessels
There is now overwhelming evidence for Epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs) as endothelial derived hyperpolarising factor (EDHF). Most recently, a number of pharmacological tools have been developed for the study of EETs in ...
Use of spongosine (2-methoxy adenosein) for the treatment of pain, in particular hyperalgesia
This invention relates to an analgesic and to methods of preventing, treating, or ameliorating pain using the analgesic.
The transmembrane CXC-chemokine ligand 16 is induced by IFN-gamma and TNF-alpha and shed by the activity of the disintegrin-like metalloproteinase ADAM10
The novel CXC-chemokine ligand 16 (CXCL16) functions as transmembrane adhesion molecule on the surface of APCs and as a soluble chemoattractant for activated T cells. In this study, we elucidate the mechanism responsible ...
Immobilized peptides/amino acids on solid supports for metal remediation
Recently, a significant amount of work has focused on metal binding by natural systems for various applications. This review will focus on the utility of amino acids, short peptides, and proteins that have been immobilized ...
Continuing the epidemiological function of the Addicts Index - evidence from matching the Home Office Addicts Index with the National Drug Treatment Monitoring System
Aims: We discuss the Addicts Index (AI) and examine whether the epidemiological trends of the AI can be continued by the regional drug misuse databases (DMDs, now known as National Drug Treatment Monitoring System (NDTMS). ...
Transient activaton of β-catenin signalling in adult mouse epidermis is sufficient to induce new hair follicles but continuous activation is required to maintain hair follicle tumours
When β-catenin signalling is disturbed from mid-gestation onwards lineage commitment is profoundly altered in postnatal mouse epidermis. We have investigated whether adult epidermis has the capacity for β-catenin-induced ...
