Measuring the induction or inhibition of apoptosis by HPV proteins (2005)
Book Chapter
Kowalczyk, A. M., Roeder, G. E., Green, K., Stephens, D. J., & Gaston, K. (2005). Measuring the induction or inhibition of apoptosis by HPV proteins. In C. Davy, & J. Doorbar (Eds.), Human Papillomaviruses: methods and protocols, 419 -- 432. Humana Press. doi:10.1385/1-59259-982-6:419

Many viral proteins influence the cellular pathways that control cell proliferation and cell death. Some viral proteins trigger apoptotic cell death, and this may be important in host defense and viral spread. In other cases, viral proteins inhibit a... Read More

p-Hydroxybenzoic acid synthesis in mycobacterium tuberculosis (2005)
Journal Article
Stadthagen, G., Kordula´kova, J., Griffin, R., Constant, P., Bottova, I., Barilone, N., …Jackson, M. (2005). p-Hydroxybenzoic acid synthesis in mycobacterium tuberculosis. Journal of Biological Chemistry, 280(49), doi:10.1074/jbc.M508332200. ISSN 0021-9258

Glycosylated p-hydroxybenzoic acid methyl esters and structurally related phenolphthiocerol glycolipids are important virulence factors of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Although both types of molecules are thought to be derived from p-hydroxybenzoic ac... Read More

Bacteriophage therapy to reduce Campylobacter jejuni colonization of broiler chickens (2005)
Journal Article
Loc Carrillo, C., Atterbury, R. J., El-Shibiny, A., Connerton, P. L., Dillon, E., Scott, A., & Connerton, I. F. (2005). Bacteriophage therapy to reduce Campylobacter jejuni colonization of broiler chickens. Applied and Environmental Microbiology, 71(11), doi:10.1128/AEM.71.11.6554-6563.2005. ISSN 0099-2240

Colonization of broiler chickens by the enteric pathogen Campylobacter jejuni is widespread and difficult to prevent. Bacteriophage therapy is one possible means by which this colonization could be controlled, thus limiting the entry of campylobacter... Read More

Total loss of MHC class I is an independent indicator of good prognosis in breast cancer (2005)
Journal Article
Madjd, Z., Spendlove, I., Pinder, S. E., Ellis, I. O., & Durrant, L. G. (2005). Total loss of MHC class I is an independent indicator of good prognosis in breast cancer. International Journal of Cancer, 117(2), doi:10.1002/ijc.21163. ISSN 0020-7136

Tumours can be recognised by CTL and NK cells. CTL recognition depends on expression of MHC Class I loaded with peptides from tumour antigens. In contrast, loss of MHC Class I results in NK activation. In our study a large set of samples from patient... Read More

Queering religious texts: An exploration of British non-heterosexual Christians’ and Muslims’ strategy of constructing sexuality-affirming hermeneutics. (2005)
Journal Article
Yip, A. (2005). Queering religious texts: An exploration of British non-heterosexual Christians’ and Muslims’ strategy of constructing sexuality-affirming hermeneutics. Sociology, 39(1), doi:10.1177/0038038505049000. ISSN 0038-0385

Religious authority figures often use religious texts as the primary basis for censuring homosexuality. In recent years, however, non-heterosexual Christians and Muslims have begun to contest the discursively produced boundary of sexual morality.Draw... Read More

A coupled calibration and modelling approach to the understanding of dry-land lake oxygen isotope records (2005)
Journal Article
Jones, M. D., Leng, M. J., Roberts, C. N., Turkes, M., & Moyeed, R. (2005). A coupled calibration and modelling approach to the understanding of dry-land lake oxygen isotope records. Journal of Paleolimnology, 34(3), 391–411. doi:10.1007/s10933-005-6743-0

Comparisons between climate proxies and instrumental records through the last two centuries are often used to understand better the controls on palaeoarchives and to find relationships that can be used to quantify changes in pre-instrumental climate.... Read More

Hybrid Variable Neighborhood HyperHeuristicsfor Exam Timetabling Problems (2005)
Presentation / Conference
Qu, R., & Burke, E. (2005, August). Hybrid Variable Neighborhood HyperHeuristicsfor Exam Timetabling Problems. Paper presented at The Sixth Metaheuristics International Conference 2005

This paper presents our work on analysing the high level search within a graph based hyperheuristic. The graph based hyperheuristic solves the problem at a higher level by searching through permutations of graph heuristics rather than the actual solu... Read More

Correlation of Campylobacter bacteriophage with reduced presence of hosts in broiler chicken ceca (2005)
Journal Article
Atterbury, R. J., Dillon, E., Swift, C., Connerton, P. L., Frost, J., Dodd, C. E., …Connerton, I. F. (2005). Correlation of Campylobacter bacteriophage with reduced presence of hosts in broiler chicken ceca. Applied and Environmental Microbiology, 71(8), doi:10.1128/AEM.71.8.4885-4887.2005. ISSN 0099-2240

Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter-specific bacteriophage were enumerated from broiler chicken ceca selected from 90 United Kingdom flocks (n = 205). C. jejuni counts in the presence of bacteriophage (mean log10 5.1 CFU/g) were associated with a... Read More

Attenuation technique for measuring sediment displacement levels (2005)
Journal Article
Munro, R. J., & Dalziel, S. B. (2005). Attenuation technique for measuring sediment displacement levels. Experiments in Fluids, 39(3), doi:10.1007/s00348-005-0998-0. ISSN 0723-4864

A technique for obtaining accurate, high (spatial) resolution measurements of sediment redeposition levels is described. In certain regimes, the method may also be employed to provide measurements of sediment layer thickness as a function of time. Th... Read More

Journal Article
Williams, H. C. (2005). Atopic Dermatitis

A 10-year-old girl with atopic dermatitis reports itching that has recently become relentless, resulting in sleep loss. Her mother has been reluctant to treat the girl with topical corticosteroids, because she was told that they damage the skin, bu... Read More

The bacterial helicase-primase interaction: a common structural/functional module (2005)
Journal Article
Soultanas, P. (2005). The bacterial helicase-primase interaction: a common structural/functional module. Structure, 13(6), doi:10.1016/j.str.2005.04.006. ISSN 0969-2126

The lack of a high-resolution structure for the bacterial helicase-primase complex and the fragmented structural information for the individual proteins have been hindering our detailed understanding of this crucial binary protein interaction. Two ne... Read More
