The fermion spectrum in braneworld collisions (2007)
Journal Article
Saffin, P. M., & Tranberg, A. (2007). The fermion spectrum in braneworld collisions. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2007(12), doi:10.1088/1126-6708/2007/12/053. ISSN 1029-8479

In braneworld collisions fermions originally localised on one brane can be transferred to another brane, or to a space-time boundary. By modelling branes as scalar field kinks we bounce them off boundaries and study resulting effects according to a b... Read More

Immune system approaches to intrusion detection - a review (2007)
Journal Article
Kim, J., Bentley, P., Aickelin, U., Greensmith, J., Tedesco, G., & Twycross, J. (2007). Immune system approaches to intrusion detection - a review. Natural Computing, 6(4), 413-466

The use of artificial immune systems in intrusion detection is an appealing concept for two reasons. Firstly, the human immune system provides the human body with a high level of protection from invading pathogens, in a robust, self-organised and dis... Read More

Ontogeny and nutritional programming of mitochondrial proteins in the ovine kidney, liver and lung (2007)
Journal Article
Yakubu, D., Mostyn, A., Hyatt, M., Kurlak, L., Budge, H., Stephenson, T., & Symonds, M. E. (2007). Ontogeny and nutritional programming of mitochondrial proteins in the ovine kidney, liver and lung. Reproduction, 134, doi:10.1530/REP-07-0155. ISSN 1470-1626

This study investigated the developmental and nutritional programming of two important mitochondrial proteins, namely voltage dependent anion channel (VDAC) and cytochrome c in the sheep kidney, liver and lung. The effect of maternal nutrient restric... Read More

Singular manifolds, topology change and the dynamics of compactification (2007)
Journal Article
Butcher, N. A., & Saffin, P. M. (2007). Singular manifolds, topology change and the dynamics of compactification. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2007(11), doi:10.1088/1126-6708/2007/11/062. ISSN 1029-8479

We investigate the dynamics of the geometric transitions associated to compactified spacetimes. By including the dynamics of gravity we are able to follow the evolution of collapsing cycles as they attempt to undergo a topology changing transition. R... Read More

In vitro anthelmintic effects of cysteine proteinases from plants against intestinal helminths of rodents (2007)
Journal Article
Stepek, G., Lowe, A. E., Buttle, D. J., Duce, I. R., & Behnke, J. M. (2007). In vitro anthelmintic effects of cysteine proteinases from plants against intestinal helminths of rodents. Journal of Helminthology, 81(4), doi:10.1017/S0022149X0786408X. ISSN 0022-149X

Infections with gastrointestinal (GI) nematodes are amongst the most prevalent worldwide, especially in tropical climates. Control of these infections is primarily through treatment with anthelmintic drugs, but the rapid development of resistance to... Read More

Bumps and rings in a two-dimensional neural field: splitting and rotational instabilities (2007)
Journal Article
Owen, M. R., Laing, C., & Coombes, S. (2007). Bumps and rings in a two-dimensional neural field: splitting and rotational instabilities. New Journal of Physics, 9(378), doi:10.1088/1367-2630/9/10/378. ISSN 1367-2630

In this paper we consider instabilities of localised solutions in planar neural field firing rate models of Wilson-Cowan or Amari type. Importantly we show that angular perturbations can destabilise spatially localised solutions. For a scalar model... Read More

Ontogeny and nutritional programming of the hepatic growth hormone-insulin-like growth factor-prolactin axis in the sheep (2007)
Journal Article
Hyatt, M., Budge, H., Walker, D., Stephenson, T., & Symonds, M. E. (2007). Ontogeny and nutritional programming of the hepatic growth hormone-insulin-like growth factor-prolactin axis in the sheep. Endocrinology, 148(10), doi:10.1210/en.2007-0303. ISSN 0013-7227

The liver is an important metabolic and endocrine organ in the fetus but the extent to which its hormone receptor (R) sensitivity is developmentally regulated in early life is not fully established. We, therefore, examined developmental changes in mR... Read More

Flexural Behavior of Brittle RC Members Rehabilitated with Concrete Jacketing (2007)
Journal Article
Thermou, G., Pantazopoulou, S., & Elnashai, A. (2007). Flexural Behavior of Brittle RC Members Rehabilitated with Concrete Jacketing. Journal of Structural Engineering, 133(10), 1373-1384. doi:10.1061/(asce)0733-9445(2007)133:10(1373)

The composite flexural action of prismatic reinforced concrete (RC) members repaired/strengthened by RC jacketing was modeled with a dual-section approach. The model considers the relative slip at the interface between the existing member and the jac... Read More

Should data monitoring committees assess efficacy when considering safety in trails in acute stroke? (2007)
Journal Article
Bath, P. M., Gray, L. J., & Wahlgren, N. (2007). Should data monitoring committees assess efficacy when considering safety in trails in acute stroke?. International Journal of Clinical Practice, 61(10), ISSN 1368-5031

The primary role of a trials Data Monitoring Committee (DMC) is to ensure the safety of enrolled patients. In stroke trials, safety is monitored typically by comparing death and stroke specific events between treatment groups. DMCs may also have the... Read More

O! She doth teach the torches to burn bright: How JULIET can help authors and repository advocates. (2007)
Journal Article
Smith, J. H. (2007). How JULIET can help authors and repository advocates. Aliss Quarterly, 3(1), ISSN 1747-9258

JULIET is a service provided by SHERPA. Its mission is to provide a brief summary of each funding agency’s policy on self-archiving of the published research they have funded. Each entry covers the requirements and details: -Whether archiving is man... Read More
