    The title compound, C15H12N2O, adopts the expected near-planar geometry, the phenyl and tolyl rings being inclined relative to the oxadiazole ring by 3.8 (3) and 8.3 (2)degrees, respectively. This allows adjacent molecules ...
  • 220GHz wideband 3D imaging radar for concealed object detection technology development and phenomenology studies 

    Robertson, Duncan Alexander; Macfarlane, David Graham; Bryllert, Tomas (SPIE-The International Society for Optical Engineering, 2016-05-12) - Conference item

  • 2A - the "go-to" technology for transgene co-expression 

    Minskaia, Ekaterina; Luke, Garry Alec (2015-08-26) - Journal item
    In order to co-express multiple genes for biotechnological and biomedical applications, several approaches have been used with varying degrees of success. Currently, internal ribosome entry site (IRES) elements and ...
  • 2A peptides provide distinct solutions to driving stop-carry on translational recoding 

    Sharma, P; Yan, F; Doronina, V; Escuin-Ordinas, Helena; Ryan, Martin Denis; Brown, Jeremy (2012-04) - Journal article
    Expression of viral proteins frequently includes non-canonical decoding events (‘recoding’) during translation. ‘2A’ oligopeptides drive one such event, termed ‘stop-carry on’ recoding. Nascent 2A peptides interact with ...
  • 2A-induced ribosome stalling 

    Odon, Valèrie M. N. (University of St Andrews, 2014-06-25) - Thesis
    Originally 2A was characterised in foot-and-mouth disease virus. Site directed mutagenesis identified a C-terminus consensus motif [D(V/I)ExNPGP] and it is proposed that 2A interacts with the exit tunnel of the ribosome ...
