(Springer Nature, 2016-09-21)
Background: Stretch marks (Striae gravidarum) are a cutaneous change occurring commonly during pregnancy. A variety of products are available and promoted as ways to prevent or reduce their development, but it is not clear ...
Going beyond fadn: the use of additional data to gain insights into extension service use across european union member states
(Research Institute of Agricultural Economics, 2016-12-01)
This paper examines the use of extension services by farm households across eight European Union (EU) Member States, exploring the type of extension service engaged with, the degree of engagement and the type of information ...
A search for spectral hysteresis and energy-dependent time lags from x-ray and tev gamma-ray observations of mrk 421
(American Astronomical Society, 2016-12-22)
Blazars are variable emitters across all wavelengths over a wide range of timescales, from months down to minutes. It is therefore essential to observe blazars simultaneously at different wavelengths, especially in the ...
Family and healthcare professionals’ perceptions of a pilot hospice at home programme for children: a qualitative study
(Springer Nature, 2016-10-28)
Background: Parents commonly report a significant improvement in quality of life following the provision of hospice and supportive care and have identified a need for such a service in the home. The purpose of this study ...
Protein charge determination and implications for interactions in cell extracts
Decades of dilute-solution studies have revealed the influence of charged residues on protein stability, solubility and stickiness. Similar characterizations are now required in physiological solutions to understand the ...
Grasping the nature of the cell interior: fromphysiological chemistrytochemical biology
Current models of the cell interior emphasise its crowded, chemically complex and dynamically organised structure. Although the chemical composition of cells is known, the cooperative intermolecular interactions that govern ...
Nucleolar activity and cenp-c regulate cenp-a and cal1 availability for centromere assembly in meiosis
(The Company of Biologists, 2016-04-15)
The centromere-specific histone CENP-A is the key epigenetic determinant of centromere identity. Whereas most histones are removed from mature sperm, CENP-A is retained to mark paternal centromeres. In Drosophila males we ...
A search for brief optical flashes associated with the seti target kic 8462852
(American Astronomical Society, 2016-02-18)
The F-type star KIC. 8462852 has recently been identified as an exceptional target for search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) observations. We describe an analysis methodology for optical SETI, which we have used ...

Veritas and multiwavelength observations of the bl lacertae object 1es 1741+196
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 2016-04-01)
We present results from multiwavelength observations of the BL Lacertae object 1ES 1741 + 196, including results in the very high energy gamma-ray regime using the Very Energetic Radiation Imaging Telescope Array System ...
