IS6110-Mediated Deletion Polymorphism in Isogenic Strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis
Previous studies have described IS6110-mediated polymorphism as an important driving force in Mycobacterium tuberculosis genome evolution and have provided indirect evidence for IS6110-driven deletion events. This study ...
Extinction risk from climate change
Climate change over the past ∼30 years has produced numerous shifts in the distributions and abundances of species and has been implicated in one species-level extinction. Using projections of species' distributions for ...
Nutrigenomics: Unraveling man's constitution in relation to food

Analysis of genes implicated in iron regulation in individuals presenting with primary iron overload
Extensive investigation into the molecular basis of iron overload disorders has provided new insights into the complexity of iron metabolism and related cellular pathways. The possible involvement of genes affecting iron ...
Autosome and sex chromosome diversity among the African pygmy mice, subgenus Nannomys (Murinae; Mus)
The African pygmy mice, subgenus Nannomys, constitute the most speciose lineage of the genus Mus with 19 recognized species. Although morphologically very similar, they exhibit considerable chromosomal diversity which is ...
Towards an optimum spore immobilisation strategy using Phanerochaete chrysosporium, reverse filtration and ultrafiltration membranes
An externally unskinned polysulfone ultrafiltration capillary membrane was used as an immobilisation matrix for the white rot basidiomycete Phanerochaete chrysosporium ME446. In this study, different membrane bioreactor ...
Solid polyelectrolyte (SPE) membranes with textured surface
Perfluorinated cation-exchange (Nafion-like) flat-sheet membranes were platinised using the electroless chemical deposition method. The morphology of the platinum micro-particles (platinum electrocatalyst) deposited onto ...
Direct intracellular nitric oxide detection in isolated adult cardiomyocytes: Flow cytometric analysis using the fluorescent probe, diaminofluorescein
We assessed the possibility to detect intracellular nitric oxide (NO) with the NO-specific probe 4,5-diaminofluorescein-2/diacetate (DAF-2/DA), by flow cytometry, in fresh adult rat cardiomyocytes, and compared the findings ...
Headaches in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus: A comparative study
The incidence and nature of headaches in 85 systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients attending an outpatient clinic were studied and compared to those experienced by 61 nurses. The two groups were similar in age, sex ...
