  • Desmosomal armadillo proteins in zebrafish cardiac development 

    Ryan, Rebecca (2012-12-18)
    Plakoglobin and plakophilin-2 are desmosomal armadillo proteins, required for correct cardiac development in zebrafish. Mutations in the human genes can cause the congenital heart defect arrhythmogenic right ventricular ...
  • A detailed chemical kinetic modeling, ignition delay time and jet-stirred reactor study of methanol oxidation 

    Burke, Ultan; Metcalfe, Wayne K.; Burke, Sinead M.; Heufer, K. Alexander; Dagaut, Philippe; Curran, Henry J. (Elsevier, 2016-01-29)
    A shock tube (ST) and a rapid compression machine (RCM) have been used to measure new ignition delay times for methanol oxidation over a wide range of pressures (2-50 atm) and equivalence ratios (0.5, 1.0, and 2.0). These ...

    This paper describes the validation of a previously described CFD-CRN method (computational fluid dynamics-chemical reactor network) for emissions predictions for the laboratory benchmark TECFLAM S09c flame. It details CFD ...
  • Detection and repair of flash-eye in handheld devices 

    Corcoran, Peter; Bigioi, Petronel; Nanu, Florin (IEEE, 2014)
    Red-eye and flash-eye defects in still photography continue to cause problems for digital imaging devices. New variants of flash-eye defects have appeared as cameras and cameras sub-systems get smaller in size. This paper ...
  • Detection of Extended VHE Gamma Ray Emission from G106.3+2.7 with VERITAS 

    Lang, Mark; Gillanders, Gary (2009)
    We report the detection of very-high-energy (VHE) gamma-ray emission from supernova remnant (SNR) G106.3+2.7. Observations performed in 2008 with the VERITAS atmospheric Cherenkov gamma-ray telescope resolve extended ...
  • Detection of Pulsed Gamma Rays Above 100 GeV from the Crab Pulsar 

    Lang, Mark; Gillanders, Gary (2011)
    We report the detection of pulsed gamma rays from the Crab pulsar at energies above 100 Gigaelectronvolts (GeV) with the VERITAS array of atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes. The detection cannot be explained on the basis of ...
  • Detection of ROS induced proteomic signatures by mass spectrometry 

    McDonagh, Brian (Frontiers Media, 2017)
    Reversible and irreversible post-translational modifications ( PTMs) induced by endogenously generated reactive oxygen species (ROS) in regulatory enzymes and proteins plays an essential role in cellular signaling. Almost ...
  • Detection of vehicles using fisheye cameras 

    Dooley, Damien (2017-05-10)
    An image processing system capable of detecting vehicles within the vicinity of the ego vehicle for use in a surround view camera system (SVC) is presented in this thesis. Image processing based object detection can be ...
  • The detention of voluntary and involuntary patients in mental health facilities: the ethical considerations 

    National Advisory Committee on Bioethics; Green, Andrew; Bradley, Colin; Gordijn, Bert; Hull, Richard; Kennedy, Harry; Madden, Deirdre; McAuley, Adam; McCarthy, Joan; McQuillan, Regina; Sheikh, Asim A.; Smith, David (Department of Health, 2015)
    It has been estimated that one in four people will experience some form of mental ill-health in their lifetime.1 This can range from feelings of anxiety, to depression, to more severe mental health problems, such as ...
  • Detention without trial in the United Kingdom: From empire to the 'War on Terror' 

    Duffy, Aoife (2014-05-16)
    This thesis analyses detention without trial in the United Kingdom by applying a socio-legal lens to several instances where these extra-judicial powers have been adopted. What will emerge from this examination is twofold. ...
  • Determinants of Foreign Direct Investment: An analysis of Japanese Investment in Ireland using the Kano model 

    Cormican, Kathryn (IEEE, 2013-06)
    This paper presents findings from an analysis of the location-specific foreign direct investment (FDI) factors that attract Japanese multinational companies (MNCs) to Ireland. Data was collected from 11 Japanese MNCs and ...
  • The determinants of lifestyle counselling among practice nurses in Ireland. 

    Connolly, Claire (Institute of Health Promotion and Education, 2008-08)
