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 ...

Core entrepreneurial competencies and their interdependencies: insights from a study of irish and iranian entrepreneurs, university students and academics
(Springer Nature, 2016-03-19)
The purpose of this paper is to advance our understanding of core entrepreneurial competencies and their interdependencies. Developing entrepreneurial competencies is increasingly seen as important to foster entrepreneurship. ...
Non-invasive evaluation of skin tension lines with elastic waves
Background: Since their discovery by Karl Langer in the 19th Century, Skin Tension Lines (STLs) have been used by surgeons to decide the location and orientation of an incision. Although these lines are patient-specific, ...
Using qualitative insights to change practice: exploring the culture of antibiotic prescribing and consumption for urinary tract infections
Objectives: The aim of this paper is to explore the culture of antibiotic prescribing and consumption in the community for urinary tract infections (UTI) from the perspective of the general practitioners (GPs) and community ...
Ecosystem engineering creates a direct nutritional link between 600-m deep cold-water coral mounds and surface productivity
(Springer Nature, 2016-10-11)
Cold-water corals (CWCs) form large mounds on the seafloor that are hotspots of biodiversity in the deep sea, but it remains enigmatic how CWCs can thrive in this food-limited environment. Here, we infer from model simulations ...
El niño-southern oscillation influence on tropospheric mercury concentrations
The El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) affects the tropospheric concentrations of many trace gases. Here we investigate the ENSO influence on mercury concentrations measured in the upper troposphere during Civil Aircraft ...
Origin of year-long bean (phaseolus dumosusmacfady, fabaceae) from reticulated hybridization events between multiplephaseolusspecies
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 2016-08-06)
Background and Aims Improved understanding of the secondary gene pools of crops is essential for advancing genetic gain in breeding programmes. Common bean, Phaseolus vulgaris, is a staple crop with several wild relatives ...
