Welcome to Repository@Nottingham

The Repository@Nottingham is intended to be an Open Access showcase for the published research output of the university. Whenever possible, refereed documents accepted for publication, or finished artistic compositions presented in public, will be made available here in full digital format, and hyperlinks to standard published versions will be provided.

Time-slicing spiral galaxies with SDSS-IV MaNGA (2019)
Journal Article
Peterken, T., Fraser-Mckelvie, A., Aragón-Salamanca, A., Merrifield, M., Kraljic, K., Knapen, J. H., …Drory, N. (in press). Time-slicing spiral galaxies with SDSS-IV MaNGA. Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, doi:10.1093/mnras/stz2204/5548799

Spectra of galaxies contain a wealth of information about the stellar populations from which they are made. With integral-field unit (IFU) surveys, such data can be used to map out stellar population properties across the face of a galaxy, allowing o... Read More

Local and global energies for shape analysis in medical imaging (2019)
Journal Article
Varano, V., Piras, P., Gabriele, S., Teresi, L., Nardinocchi, P., Dryden, I. L., …Puddu, P. E. (in press). Local and global energies for shape analysis in medical imaging. International Journal for Numerical Methods in Biomedical Engineering,

In a previous contribution a new Riemannian shape space, named TPS space, was introduced to perform statistics on shape data. This space was endowed with a Rie-mannian metric and a flat connection, with torsion, compatible with the given metric. This... Read More

Outcomes following an index emergency admission with cholecystitis: a national cohort study (2019)
Journal Article
Mytton, J., Daliya, P., Singh, P., Parsons, S., Lobo, D., Lilford, R., & Vohra, R. (in press). Outcomes following an index emergency admission with cholecystitis: a national cohort study. Annals of Surgery,

This study has shown that over 50% of the 99,139 admitted with acute cholecystitis in England did not undergo cholecystectomy following index admission. Mortality was higher in the non-operated group, which was mostly due to non-gallbladder pathologi... Read More

Kinesin-8B controls basal body function and flagellum formation and is key to malaria transmission (2019)
Journal Article
Zeeshan, M., Ferguson, D. J., Abel, S., Burrrell, A., Rea, E., Brady, D., …Tewari, R. (2019). Kinesin-8B controls basal body function and flagellum formation and is key to malaria transmission. Life Science Alliance, 2(4), 1-13. doi:10.26508/lsa.201900488

Eukaryotic flagella are conserved microtubule-based organelles that drive cell motility. Plasmodium, the causative agent of malaria, has a single flagellate stage: the male gamete in the mosquito. Three rounds of endomitotic division in male gametocy... Read More

Nucleotide signaling pathway convergence in a cAMP‐sensing bacterial c‐di‐GMP phosphodiesterase (2019)
Journal Article
Cadby, I. T., Basford, S. M., Nottingham, R., Meek, R., Lowry, R., Lambert, C., …Lovering, A. L. (2019). Nucleotide signaling pathway convergence in a cAMP‐sensing bacterial c‐di‐GMP phosphodiesterase. EMBO Journal, doi:10.15252/embj.2018100772

Bacterial usage of the cyclic dinucleotide c-di-GMP is widespread, governing the transition between motile/sessile and unicellular/ multicellular behaviors. There is limited information on c-di-GMP metabolism, particularly on regulatory mechanisms go... Read More
