    This study evaluates the utility of Cre-expressing adenovirus for deletion of floxed genes in primary cells using primary murine hepatocytes. Adenovirus infection was very efficient, even at very low MOI (>95% infection ...
  • Adenylate forming enzymes involved in NRPS-independent siderophore biosynthesis 

    Schmelz, Stefan (University of St Andrews, 2010-06-23) - Thesis
    Activation of otherwise unreactive substrates is a common strategy in chemistry and in nature. Adenylate-forming enzymes use adenosine monophosphate to activate the hydroxyl of their carboxylic substrate, creating a better ...
  • Adherence in behavioural interventions for stroke patients : measurement and prediction 

    Joice, Sara A. (University of St Andrews, 2005) - Thesis
    Background: With the increasing incidence in stroke and the resultant high prevalence of residual disability resources are not adequately meeting the needs of the patients. Furthermore patients continue to express ...
  • Adoption of integrated reporting by the ASX 50 

    ACCA Australia and New Zealand; Net Balance Foundation (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, 2011-12-07) - Report
    This report investigates the state of integrated reporting among Australia’s 50 largest listed companies. It examines, on the basis of publicly available information, the extent to which companies have integrated non-financial ...
  • ‘Adoption’ by maternal siblings in wild chimpanzees 

    Hobaiter, Cat; Schel, Anne Marijke; Langergraber, Kevin; Zuberbuehler, Klaus (2014-08-01) - Journal article
    The adoption of unrelated orphaned infants is something chimpanzees and humans have in common. Providing parental care has fitness implications for both the adopter and orphan, and cases of adoption have thus been cited ...
  • The ADOR mechanism for the synthesis of new zeolites 

    Eliášová, P.; Opanasenko, M.; Wheatley, Paul Stewart; Shamzhy, M.; Mazur, M.; Nachtigall, P.; Roth, W.J.; Morris, Russell Edward; Čejka, J. (2015-10-21) - Journal article
    A novel methodology, called ADOR (assembly-disassembly-organisation-reassembly), for the synthesis of zeolites is reviewed here in detail. The ADOR mechanism stems from the fact that certain chemical weakness against a ...
  • Adsorption materials and processes for carbon capture from gas-fired power plants : AMPGas 

    Gibson, J. A. Arran; Mangano, Enzo; Shiko, Elenica; Greenaway, Alex; Gromov, Andrei V.; Lozinska, Magdalena M.; Friedrich, Daniel; Campbell, Eleanor E. B.; Wright, Paul A.; Brandani, Stefano (2016-04-06) - Journal article
    The key challenge in postcombustion capture from gas-fired power plants is related to the low CO2 concentration in the flue gas (4–8% by volume). This means that conventional amine processes will result in a relatively ...
