The PRS gene family links primary metabolism and cell signalling in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
(Heriot-Watt University Life Sciences, 2014-10)
The products of the five-membered PRS gene family in S. cerevisiae exist as three entities, Prs1/Prs3, Prs2/Prs5 and Prs4/Prs5, each capable of supporting cell viability. The signal generated from an integrated GFP-Prs1 ...
The ecotoxicology of carbon nanotubes in the marine environment
(Heriot-Watt University Life Sciences, 2014-11)
With their high aspect ratio, strength, light weight and electrical conductivity single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) provide properties of great interest to industry, and, consequently, are finding use in an ever ...
Investigations into the skeletal mineralogy of temperate and polar bryozoans
(Heriot-Watt University, 2014-08)
This study aims to explore the skeletal mineralogy of temperate and Polar bryozoans, investigating variability within and between species in relation to methodological, biological and environmental factors. Oceans are ...
Short chain fatty acids : the effect on adipose tissue metabolism and function
(Heriot-Watt University Life Sciences, 2014-05)
Adipose tissue homeostasis is regulated by a combination of extracellular and intracellular signalling pathways. Activation of surface G protein-coupled receptors (GPCR) and insulin receptors, influence the rate of lipolysis ...
Extraction and characterisation of protein fraction from date palm (Phoenix dactylifera L.) seeds
(Heriot-Watt University Life Sciences, 2014-06)
To meet the challenges of protein price increases from animal sources, the development of new, sustainable and inexpensive proteins sources (nonanimal sources) is of great importance. Date palm (Phoenix dactylifera ...
The PM19 protein : a functional analysis in Arabidopsis thaliana
(Heriot-Watt University Life Sciences, 2014-01)
The amino acid sequence of the trans-membrane protein, PM19, unique to the plant kingdom has been highly conserved over 450 million years of evolution in all plant genera including ferns and mosses, but is not found in ...
The role of nanomaterial-protein interactions in determining the toxic consequences of nanomaterial exposure
(Heriot-Watt University Life Sciences, 2014-02)
As early biological responses to foreign objects in the body can be influenced by their bound proteins, the nanomaterial hard protein corona (the collection of slow exchange proteins that associate with nanomaterials) is ...
Studies on the glucose family phosphotransferases of Clostridium beijerinckii
(Heriot-Watt University Life Sciences, 2014-09)
Revival of the ABE fermentation will be enhanced by the ability of bacterial strains to utilise cheap, renewable substrates containing a range of fermentable carbohydrates. Development of an effective process will, however, ...
