Integrated microfluidic tmrna purification and real-time nasba device for molecular diagnostics
(Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2008-01-01)
We demonstrate the first integrated microfluidic tmRNA purification and nucleic acid sequence-based amplification (NASBA) device incorporating real-time detection. The real-time amplification and detection step produces ...
Role of listeria monocytogenes b in survival of lethal acidic conditions and in the acquired acid tolerance response
(American Society for Microbiology, 2003-05-01)
The food-borne pathogen Listeria monocytogenes can acquire enhanced resistance to lethal acid conditions through multiple mechanisms. We investigated contributions of the stress-responsive alternative sigma factor, or ...
Who eats four or more servings of fruit and vegetables per day? multivariate classification tree analysis of data from the 1998 survey of lifestyle, attitudes and nutrition in the republic of ireland
(Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2005-04-01)
Objective: To identify, using the novel application of multivariate classification trees, the socio-economic, sociodemographic and health-related lifestyle behaviour profile of adults who comply with the recommended 4 or ...
Role of b in regulating the compatible solute uptake systems of listeria monocytogenes: osmotic induction of opuc is b dependent
(American Society for Microbiology, 2003-04-01)
The regulation of the compatible solute transport systems in Listeria monocytogenes by the stress-inducible sigma factor sigma(B) was investigated. Using wild-type strain 10403S and an otherwise isogenic strain carrying ...
Gain of imprinting of slc22a18 sense and antisense transcripts in human breast cancer
(Elsevier BV, 2006-07-01)
Phase variation of campylobacter jejuni 81-176 lipooligosaccharide affects ganglioside mimicry and invasiveness in vitro
(American Society for Microbiology, 2002-02-01)
The outer cores of the lipooligosaccharides (LOS) of many strains of Campylobacter jejuni mimic human gangliosides in structure. A population of cells of C.jejuni strain 81-176 produced a mixture of LOS cores which consisted ...
Otolith shape analysis: its application for discriminating between stocks of irish sea and celtic sea herring (clupea harengus) in the irish sea
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 2008-12-01)
The extensive movement of Celtic Sea juvenile Atlantic herring (Clupea harengus) during the first year of life into the Irish Sea results in two stocks of herring living together on Irish Sea nursery grounds: the resident ...
Growth arrest-specific gene 6 expression in human breast cancer
(Springer Nature, 2008-02-19)
Growth arrest- specific gene 6 ( Gas6), identified in 1995, acts as the ligand to the Axl/ Tyro3 family of tyrosine kinase receptors and exerts mitogenic activity when bound to these receptors. Overexpression of the Axl/ ...
Role of subtyping in detecting salmonella cross contamination in the laboratory
(Springer Nature, 2009-01-01)
Background: With the exception of M. tuberculosis, little has been published on the problems of cross-contamination in bacteriology laboratories. We performed a retrospective analysis of subtyping data from the National ...
High prevalence of helicobacter species detected in laboratory mouse strains by multiplex pcr-denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis and pyrosequencing
(American Society for Microbiology, 2004-08-01)
Rodent models have been developed to study the pathogenesis of diseases caused by Helicobacter pylori, as well as by other gastric and intestinal Helicobacter spp., but some murine enteric Helicobacter spp. cause hepatobiliary ...
