The nutritive value of Italian ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum) selected for high dry matter and nonstructural carbohydrate contents.
In traditional forage breeding programmes, breeders have spent decades improving the agronomic characteristics of grasses, such as herbage yield, persistence and resistance to diseases, without considering the nutrient ...
Studies on acid phosphatases of Trypanosoma congolense.
Bloodstream forms of African trypanosomes, which endocytose macromolecules exclusively through their flagellar pockets, contain an acid phosphatase (AcP) activity in this organelle. In the present thesis, AcP activity ...
Quantitative imaging of tyrosine kinase-drug interactions in cells.
Kinases play a crucial role in regulating cellular signaling cascades, making them therapeutic targets for several human diseases. In human cancers, mis-regulation and mutations of kinases such as EGFR (epidermal growth ...
Apoptosis, redox stress and cancer.
Apoptosis is a regulated "programme" by which cells are induced to die in a manner which does not result in pathological inflammatory reactions, and involves dismantling of the cell into membrane-bound fragments that are ...
Studies on a multicatalytic, protease complex from Trypanosoma brucei brucei.
Subcellular fractionation (together with immunocytochemical localisation studies) showed that the parasite Trypanosoma brucei brucei possesses a multicatalytic protease complex (MCPTb). This complex is predominantly ...
Nickel accumulation and tolerance in Berkheya coddii and its application in phytoremediation.
As pollution becomes an ever-increasing threat to the global environment pressure is being placed upon industry to "clean-up" its act, both in terms of reducing the possibility of new pollution and cleaning up already ...
VP4 : a putative protease encoded by infectious bursal disease virus.
Infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) causes an acute and highly contagious disease affecting young chickens, which is responsible for significant losses in the poultry industry world-wide. The virus specifically infects ...
Analysis of the Mycoplasma hominis hsp70 gene and development of a PCR ELISA assay.
Mycoplasmas conform most closely with the theoretical concept of 'minimum cells', existing as the smallest, free-living organisms capable of self-replication. They survive as parasites of plants, insects, animals or ...
Identification of possible infectious bursal disease virus receptors.
Infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) is a chicken pathogen that infects the bursa of Fabricius, an organ involved in the development of the immune system in chickens. Infection by the virus leads to destruction of the ...
