Suppression to visual, auditory, and gustatory stimuli habituates normally in rats with excitotoxic lesions of the perirhinal cortex (2009)
Journal Article
Robinson, J., Sanderson, D. J., Aggleton, J. P., & Jenkins, T. A. (2009). Suppression to visual, auditory, and gustatory stimuli habituates normally in rats with excitotoxic lesions of the perirhinal cortex. Behavioral Neuroscience, 123(6), 1238-1250. doi:10.1037/a0017444

In 3 habituation experiments, rats with excitotoxic lesions of the perirhinal cortex were found to be indistinguishable from control rats. Two of the habituation experiments examined the habituation of suppression of responding on an appetitive, inst...

Traditional field-based lithological mapping can be a time-consuming, costly and challenging endeavour when large areas need to be investigated, where terrain is remote and difficult to access and where the geology is highly variable over short dista...

At less than two years duration, the ambassadorship of John Freeman was the second shortest covered by this book. It took place, too, in a singularly uneventful period in Anglo-American relations, between the dramas of 1967–68 — when the devaluation... Read More about John Freeman, 1969–71.

Evolution and stability of cosmic string loops with Y-junctions (2009)
Journal Article
Bevis, N., Copeland, E. J., Martin, P., Niz, G., Pourtsidou, A., Saffin, P. M., & Steer, D. (2009). Evolution and stability of cosmic string loops with Y-junctions. Physical Review D, 80(12), doi:10.1103/PhysRevD.80.125030

We study the evolution of non-periodic cosmic string loops containing Y-junctions, such as may form during the evolution of a network of (p,q) cosmic superstrings. We set up and solve the Nambu-Goto equations of motion for a loop with junctions, focu... Read More about Evolution and stability of cosmic string loops with Y-junctions.

Identification of sortase A (SrtA) substrates in Streptococcus uberis: evidence for an additional hexapeptide (LPXXXD) sorting motif (2009)
Journal Article
Egan, S. A., Kurian, D., Ward, P. N., Hunt, L., & Leigh, J. A. (2009). Identification of sortase A (SrtA) substrates in Streptococcus uberis: evidence for an additional hexapeptide (LPXXXD) sorting motif. Journal of Proteome Research, 9(2), doi:10.1021/pr901025w

Sortase (a transamidase) has been shown to be responsible for the covalent attachment of proteins to the bacterial cell wall. Anchoring is effected on secreted proteins containing a specific cell wall motif toward their C-terminus; that for sortase A...

Comparative attainment of 5-year undergraduate and 4-year graduate entry medical students moving into foundation training (2009)
Journal Article

Background Graduate entry medicine is a recent innovation in UK medical training. Evidence is sparse at present as to progress and attainment on these programmes. Shared clinical rotations, between an established 5-year and a new graduate entry co...

The democratic role of campaign journalism: partisan representation and public participation (2009)
Journal Article
Birks, J. (2010). The democratic role of campaign journalism: partisan representation and public participation. Journalism Practice, 4(2), doi:10.1080/17512780903407437

Campaign journalism is a distinctive but under-researched form of editorialised news reporting that aims to influence politicians rather than inform voters. In this it diverges from liberal norms of social responsibility, but instead campaigning new...

Second-order elliptic PDE with discontinuous boundary data (2009)
Journal Article
Houston, P., & Wihler, T. P. Second-order elliptic PDE with discontinuous boundary data. Manuscript submitted for publication

We shall consider the weak formulation of a linear elliptic model problem with discontinuous Dirichlet boundary conditions. Since such problems are typically not well-defined in the standard H^1-H^1 setting, we will introduce a suitable saddle point...

There has for some years been a growing concern about participation in university-entrance level mathematics in England and across the developed world. Extensive statistical analyses present the decline but offer little to help us understand the cau...

The human papillomavirus E7-E2 interaction mechanism in vitro reveals a finely turned system for modulating available E7 and E2 proteins (2009)
Journal Article
Smal, C., Wetzler, D. E., Dantur, K. I., Chemes, L. B., Garcia-Alai, M. M., Dellarole, M., …de Prat Gay, G. (2009). The human papillomavirus E7-E2 interaction mechanism in vitro reveals a finely turned system for modulating available E7 and E2 proteins. Biochemistry, 48(50), 11939-11949. doi:10.1021/bi901415k

Transcription of the human papillomavirus E7 oncoprotein is negatively controlled by the viral E2 protein, and loss of this repression leads to irreversible transformation and carcinogenesis. Here we show that interaction of the HPV16 E7 protein with...
