Welcome to the St Andrews Research Repository
This is the official institutional research repository for the University of St Andrews. The repository contains electronic theses and research publications including articles, conference proceedings, working papers and some research monographs. It also contains material and publications affiliated to the University and arising from specific projects. Full text content is provided for all research publications in the repository, and wherever possible (following embargoes) for electronic theses.
The University requires submission of an electronic version of theses. For help with electronic thesis deposit see Library webpages on how to submit your electronic copy or contact Digital-Repository@st-andrews.ac.uk.
The full text of research papers can be submitted to the repository via Pure, the University's research information system. For help see our guide: How to deposit in Pure or contact the Open Access team at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Effectiveness of early lens extraction for the treatment of primary angle-closure glaucoma (EAGLE): a randomised controlled trial (2016-10-01) - Journal articleBackground . Primary angle-closure glaucoma is a leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. In early-stage disease, intraocular pressure is raised without visual loss. Because the crystalline lens has a major ...
Inhibiting NAD+-dependent DNA ligase activity with 2-(cyclopentyloxy)-5'-deoxyadenosine (CPOdA) offers a new tool for DNA replication and repair studies in the model archaeon Haloferax volcanii (2015) - Journal articleDNA ligases play an essential role in many aspects of DNA metabolism in all three domains of life. The haloarchaeal organism Haloferax volcanii encodes both ATP- and NAD+-dependent DNA ligase enzymes designated LigA and ...
(2016-09-19) - Journal articlePhenols and their corresponding phenoxide anions can form halogen bonds with neutral iodotriazoles. The strength of these interactions depends critically on the protonation state of the oxygen atom – the interaction of the ...
Human IFIT1 inhibits mRNA translation of rubulaviruses but not other members of the Paramyxoviridae family (2016-10) - Journal articleWe have previously shown that IFIT1 is primarily responsible for the antiviral action of interferon (IFN) alpha/beta against parainfluenza virus (PIV) type 5, selectively inhibiting the translation of PIV5 mRNAs. Here we ...
Modelling observed decay-less oscillations as resonantly enhanced Kelvin-Helmholtz vortices from transverse MHD waves and their seismological application (2016-09-12) - Journal itemIn the highly structured solar corona, resonant absorption is an unavoidable mechanism of energy transfer from global transverse MHD waves to local azimuthal Alfvén waves. Due to its localised nature, a direct detection ...
