Molecular aspects of monoamine oxidase B
(2016-08-01) - Journal item,
Monoamine oxidases (MAO) influence the monoamine levels in brain by virtue of their role in neurotransmitter breakdown. MAO B is the predominant form in glial cells and in platelets. MAO B structure, function and kinetics ...
Organizing, supporting and linking the world marine biodiversity research community
(2015-02-10) - Journal item,
Next-generation metrics for monitoring genetic erosion within populations of conservation concern
(2017-11-22) - Journal item,
Genetic erosion is a major threat to biodiversity because it can reduce fitness and ultimately contribute to the extinction of populations. Here, we explore the use of quantitative metrics to detect and monitor genetic ...
Marine mammals exploring the oceans pole to pole : a review of the MEOP consortium
(2017-06) - Journal item,
Polar oceans are poorly monitored despite the important role they play in regulating the Earth’s climate system. Marine mammals equipped with biologging devices are now being used to fill the data gaps in these logistically ...
2A - the "go-to" technology for transgene co-expression
(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 ...
Evolution of homeobox gene clusters in animals : the Giga-cluster and primary versus secondary clustering
(2016-04-14) - Journal item,
The Hox gene cluster has been a major focus in evolutionary developmental biology. This is because of its key role in patterning animal development and widespread examples of changes in Hox genes being linked to the evolution ...
Mechanisms of gene duplication and translocation and progress towards understanding their relative contributions to animal genome evolution
(2012) - Journal item,
Duplication of genetic material is clearly a major route to genetic change, with consequences for both evolution and disease. A variety of forms and mechanisms of duplication are recognised, operating across the scales of ...
A recipe for scavenging in vertebrates - the natural history of a behaviour
(2017-02-01) - Journal item,
Despite its prevalence, the importance of scavenging to carnivores is difficult to ascertain in modern day forms and impossible to study directly in extinct species. Yet, there are certain intrinsic and environmental ...
Willing to be involved in cancer
(2016-07-18) - Journal item,
Genome sequencing is now a common procedure, but prior to this, screening experiments using protein baits was one of the routinely used methods that, occasionally, allowed the identification of new gene products. One such ...
