    Background: Previous studies have shown that plant mitochondrial movements are myosin-based along actin filaments, which undergo continuous turnover by the exchange of actin subunits from existing filaments. Although earlier ...
  • Acting and understanding 

    Blomberg Stathopoulos, Alexander C. (University of St Andrews, 2016-06-23) - Thesis
    This thesis concerns the question of what it is for a subject to act. It answers this question in three steps. The first step is taken by arguing that any satisfactory answer must build on the idea that an action is something ...

    This study describes a fundamental functional difference between the two main polymorphisms of the pro-form of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (proBDNF), providing an explanation as to why these forms have such different ...
  • Activation of the beta interferon promoter by paramyxoviruses in the absence of virus protein synthesis 

    Killip, M. J.; Young, D. F.; Precious, B. L.; Goodbourn, S.; Randall, R. E. (2012-02) - Journal article
    Conflicting reports exist regarding the requirement for virus replication in interferon (IFN) induction by paramyxoviruses. Our previous work has demonstrated that pathogen-associated molecular patterns capable of activating ...
  • Activation of the interferon induction cascade by influenza A viruses requires viral RNA synthesis and nuclear export 

    Killip, M J; Smith, M; Jackson, D; Randall, R E (2014-04) - Journal article
    We have examined the requirements for virus transcription and replication, and thus the roles of input and progeny genomes, in the generation of IFN-inducing PAMPs by influenza A viruses using inhibitors of these processes. ...
  • The activation of Woollins' reagent. Isolation of pyridine stabilised PhPSe2 

    Ascherl, Laura; Nordheider, Andreas; Athukorala Arachchige, Kasun Sankalpa; Cordes, David Bradford; Karaghiosoff, Konstantin; Buehl, Michael; Slawin, Alexandra Martha Zoya; Woollins, J Derek (2014-06-14) - Journal article
    Woollins' reagent (WR, (PhPSe2)2) plays an essential role in the selenation of organic compounds. Reaction of WR with pyridine gives the P(V) species PhPSe2 stabilised by pyridine coordination which is the first ...
  • Active architecture for pervasive contextual services 

    Kirby, Graham; Dearle, Alan; Morrison, Ron; Dunlop, Mark; Connor, Richard; Nixon, Paddy (2003) - Conference paper
    Pervasive services may be defined as services that are available "to any client (anytime, anywhere)". Here we focus on the software and network infrastructure required to support pervasive contextual services operating ...
  • Active drumming experience increases infants' sensitivity to audiovisual synchrony during observed drumming actions 

    Gerson, Sarah; Schiavio, Andrea; Timmers, Renee; Hunnius, Sabine (2015-06-25) - Journal article
    In the current study, we examined the role of active experience on sensitivity to multisensory synchrony in six-month-old infants in a musical context. In the first of two experiments, we trained infants to produce a novel ...
