  • The isolation of strains of Bacillus subtilis showing improved plasmid stability characteristics by means of selective chemostat culture 

    Fleming, Gerard T.; Patching, John W. (1988-03-23)
    A PUB 110-derived plasmid encoding chloramphenicol resistance, kanamycin resistance and high-temperature alpha-amylase showed a high degree of segregational instability when inserted into Bacillus subtilis. In an attempt ...
  • Generalised Moonshine and Abelian Orbifold Constructions

    We consider the application of Abelian orbifold constructions in Meromorphic Conformal Field Theory (MCFT) towards an understanding of various aspects of Monstrous Moonshine and Generalised Moonshine. We review some of the ...
  • Role of alginate lyase in cell detachment of Pseudomonas aeruginosa 

    Boyd, Aoife (American Society for Microbiology, 1994-07)
    The exopolysaccharide alginate of Pseudomonas aeruginosa was shown to be important in determining the degree of cell detachment from an agar surface. Nonmucoid strain 8822 gave rise to 50-fold more sloughed cells than ...
  • LcrG is required for efficient translocation of Yersinia Yop effector proteins into eukaryotic cells 

    Boyd, Aoife (American Society for Microbiology, 1998-06)
    Extracellular Yersinia disables the immune system of its host by injecting effector Yop proteins into host cells. We show that a Yersinia enterocolitica nonpolar lcrG mutant is severely impaired in the translocation of ...
  • The virulence plasmid of Yersinia, an anti-host genome 

    Boyd, Aoife (American Society for Microbiology, 1998-12)
    Invasive pathogenic bacteria have in common the capacity to overcome the defense mechanisms of their animal host and to proliferate in its tissues. They each have their own life-style and target organs and cause a variety ...
  • A Search for Pulsed TeV Gamma Ray Emission from the Crab Pulsar 

    Lang, Mark; Gillanders, Gary (1999)
    We present the results of a search for pulsed TeV emission from the Crab pulsar using the Whipple Observatory's 10m gamma-ray telescope. The direction of the Crab pulsar was observed for a total of 73.4 hours between 1994 ...

    Lang, Mark; Gillanders, Gary (1999)
    We present the results of a search for pulsed TeV emission from the Crab pulsar using the Whipple Observatory's 10 m gamma-ray telescope. The direction of the Crab pulsar was observed for a total of 73.4 hours between 1994 ...
  • Genus Two Meromorphic Conformal Field Theory 

    Tuite, Michael P. (1999)
    We construct the genus two (or two loop) partition function for meromorphic bosonic conformal field theories. We use a sewing procedure involving two genus one tori by exploiting an explicit relationship between the genus ...
  • A Search for Pulsed TeV Gamma Ray Emission from the Crab Pulsar 

    Lang, Mark; Gillanders, Gary; Burdett, A. M.; Bond, I. H.; Boyle, P. J.; Bradbury, S. M.; Buckley, J. H.; Carter-Lewis, D. A.; Catanese, M.; Cawley, M. F.; D'Vali, M.; Fegan, D. J.; Fegan, S.
