Targeting glutamine synthesis inhibits stem cell adipogenesis in vitro (2020)
Journal Article
Velickovic, K., Lugo Leija, H. A., Surrat, A., Kim, D., Sacks, H., Symonds, M. E., & Sottile, V. (in press). Targeting glutamine synthesis inhibits stem cell adipogenesis in vitro. Cellular Physiology and Biochemistry,

Background/Aims: Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and has a metabolic role as a precursor for protein, amino sugar and nucleotide synthesis. After glucose, glutamine is the main source of energy in cells and has recently been sho... Read More about Targeting glutamine synthesis inhibits stem cell adipogenesis in vitro.

Mental Health Recovery for Survivors of Modern Slavery: Grounded Theory Study Protocol (2020)
Journal Article
Wright, N., Hadziosmanovic, E., Dang, M., Bales, K., Brookes, C., Jordan, M., …Lived Experience Research Advisory Board, . (in press). Mental Health Recovery for Survivors of Modern Slavery: Grounded Theory Study Protocol. BMJ Open,

Introduction Slavery and human trafficking are crimes involving the violation of human rights and refer to exploitative situations where an individual cannot refuse or leave due to threats, coercion or abuse of power. Activities involving slavery inc... Read More about Mental Health Recovery for Survivors of Modern Slavery: Grounded Theory Study Protocol.

In Vitro Growth- and Encystation-Inhibitory Efficacies of Matcha Green Tea and Epigallocatechin Gallate Against Acanthameoba Castellanii (2020)
Journal Article
Dickson, A., Cooper, E., Fakae, L. B., Wang, B., Chan, K. L. A., & Elsheikha, H. M. (2020). In Vitro Growth- and Encystation-Inhibitory Efficacies of Matcha Green Tea and Epigallocatechin Gallate Against Acanthameoba Castellanii. Pathogens, 9(9), https://doi.org/10.3390/pathogens9090763

We examined the inhibitory effect of matcha green tea (Camellia sinensis) and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg; the most abundant catechin in tea) on the vegetative growth and encystation of Acanthamoeba castellanii T4 genotype. The sulforhodamine B (S... Read More about In Vitro Growth- and Encystation-Inhibitory Efficacies of Matcha Green Tea and Epigallocatechin Gallate Against Acanthameoba Castellanii.

Photoprotective energy dissipation is greater in the lower, not the upper regions of a rice canopy: a 3D analysis (2020)
Journal Article
Foo, C., Burgess, A., Retkute, R., Tree-Intong, P., Ruban, A., & Murchie, E. (2020). Photoprotective energy dissipation is greater in the lower, not the upper regions of a rice canopy: a 3D analysis. Journal of Experimental Botany, https://doi.org/10.1093/jxb/eraa411

High light intensities raise photosynthetic and plant growth rates but can cause damage to photosynthetic machinery. The likelihood and severity of deleterious effects is reduced by a set of photoprotective mechanisms, one key process being the contr...

The Effect of a Secondary Task on Drivers’ Gap Acceptance and Situational Awareness at Junctions (2020)
Journal Article
Robbins, C. J., Rogers, J., Walton, S., Allen, H. A., & Chapman, P. (in press). The Effect of a Secondary Task on Drivers’ Gap Acceptance and Situational Awareness at Junctions. Ergonomics,

The current studies explored the roles of the visuospatial and phonological working memory subsystems on drivers’ gap acceptance and memory for approaching vehicles at junctions. Drivers’ behaviour was measured in a high-fidelity driving simulator wh... Read More about The Effect of a Secondary Task on Drivers’ Gap Acceptance and Situational Awareness at Junctions.
