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...

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...

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

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...

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

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...

Digalactoside expression in the lipopolysaccharide of haemophilus influenzae and its role in intravascular survival (2005)
Journal Article

Digalactoside (gal-1-4 gal) structures of the lipopolysaccharide (LPS) of Haemophilus influenzae are implicated in virulence. A confounding factor is that tetranucleotide repeats within the lic2A, lgtC, and lex2 genes mediate phase-variable expressio...
