  1. Structural Study of the Reaction of Methylzinc Amino Alcoholates with Oxygen

    Organometallics 29(15):3318 (2010)

  2. The use of modelling to predict levels of estrogens in a river catchment: How does modelled data compare with chemical analysis and in vitro...

    Science of The Total Environment 408(20):7 (2010) PMID 20673965

    Effluent discharges at Rodbourne sewage treatment works (STWs) were assessed using chemical and in vitro biological analysis as well as modelling predictions. Results showed that Rodbourne STW discharged less estrone (E1) than expected, but similar 17beta-estradiol (E2) and 17alpha-e...
  3. The POU-er of gene nomenclature.

    Development 141(15):2921 (2014) PMID 25053425

    We seek to clarify the relationship between POU5F1 homologues in the vertebrate lineage, both phylogenetically and functionally. We resolve the confusion over the identity of the zebrafish gene, which was originally named pou2, then changed to pou5f1 and again, more recently, to pou5f3. We argue tha...
  4. The "Spot Sign" secondary to a ruptured lenticulostriate artery aneurysm.

    Clinical Imaging 38(4):508 (2014) PMID 24629789

    We report a case of an 81-year-old man who presented with right basal ganglia hemorrhage and the "Spot Sign" on computed tomography angiography. Conventional angiography subsequently revealed a lenticulostriate artery aneurysm within the hematoma, which was treated with surgical clipping. This case...
  5. Monitoring anticoagulation in patients with an unreliable prothrombin time/international normalized ratio: factor II versus chromogenic fact...

    Blood Coagulation and Fibrinolysis 25(3):232 (2014) PMID 24681704

    The international normalized ratio (INR) can be unreliable in patients with lupus anticoagulants (LACs) or other conditions affecting baseline testing. Alternative methods to assess anticoagulation on warfarin through measures of vitamin K-dependent factor activity by clot based or chromogenic assay...
  6. Mycophenolate antagonizes IFN-γ-induced catagen-like changes via β-catenin activation in human dermal papilla cells and hair follicles.

    International Journal of Molecular Sciences 15(9):16800 (2014) PMID 25247578 PMCID PMC4200814

    We investigate the influence of mycophenolate (MPA), an immunosuppressant, on the proliferation of human dermal papilla cells (hDPCs) and on the growth of human hair follicles following catagen induction with interferon (IFN)-γ. IFN-γ was found to reduce β-catenin, an activator of hair follicle grow...
  7. Synthesis of heterobimetallic tungsten acetylacetonate/alkoxide complexes and their application as molecular precursors to metal tungstates

    Polyhedron 59:85 (2013)

    The structures of M2W2(O)2(acac)2(OMe)10 [M=Co (1), Ni (2), Mg (3), Zn (4)] have been determined and 1, 3 have been shown to act as single-source precursors for MWO4 materials.
  8. Genome-wide association and functional follow-up reveals new loci for kidney function.

    PLoS Genetics 8(3):e1002584 (2012) PMID 22479191 PMCID PMC3315455

    We performed genome-wide association studies in up to 130,600 European ancestry participants overall, and stratified for key CKD risk factors. We uncovered 6 new loci in association with estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), the primary clinical measure of CKD, in or near MPPED2, DDX1, SLC47A...
  9. The contrasting physiological and subjective effects of chewing gum on social stress

    Appetite 58(2):5 (2012) PMID 22123610

    Uncertainty exists with respect to the extent to which chewing gum may attenuate stress-induced rises in cortisol secretion (Johnson, Jenks, Miles, Albert, & Cox, 2011; Scholey et al., 2009; Smith, 2010). The present study used the Trier Social Stress Task (TSST: Kirschbaum, Pirke, &...
  10. Test implementation to evaluate technologies for safe lunar landing

    IEEE Aerospace Conference. Proceedings :1 (2011)

    From June 20 through July 7 of 2009, the Autonomous Landing and Hazard Avoidance Technology (ALHAT) Exploration Technology Development Program carried out an aircraft field test over Moon like terrains to assess the use of sensors and algorithms being developed for autonomous, safe lunar landing. The...
