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 ...
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 ...

Characterisation of infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) polyprotein processing.
Infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) is a birnavirus that infects the B-cells in the bursa of Fabricius of young chickens, causing Gumboro disease. The IBDV 114 kDa polyprotein (NH2-pVP2-VP4-VP3-COOH) is thought to be ...
Antibody-mediated inhibition of proteases of African trypanosomes.
The protozoan parasites Trypanosoma congolense and T. vivax cause trypanosomosis in cattle. The major lysosomal cysteine proteinase of T. congolense, congopain, may contribute to pathogenesis of the disease, and ...
A biochemical and immunological comparison of the Jaagsiekte and two related retroviruses.
Jaagsiekte is a contagious cancer affecting the lungs of sheep. Although the etiological agent is Jaagsiekte retrovirus (JSRV), two other retroviruses viz South African maedi visna virus ( SA - OMVV) and a novel Bovine ...
