In this study, pulped cellulose fibres were pre-treated with aqueous morpholine prior to mechanical disruption in the production of cellulose nanofibrils (CNF). The properties...

The emerging role of E2F-1 in the DNA damage response and checkpoint control.

Journal Article
Stevens, C., & La Thangue, N. B. (2004)
The emerging role of E2F-1 in the DNA damage response and checkpoint control. DNA Repair, 3(8-9), 1071-1079. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.dnarep.2004.03.034
Genotoxic stress triggers a myriad of cellular responses including cell cycle arrest, stimulation of {DNA} repair and apoptosis. A central role for the E2F-1 transcription fac...

Persistence and effects of fenamiphos on native algal populations and enzymatic activities in soil

Journal Article
Megharaj, M., Singleton, I., Kookana, R., & Naidu, R. (1999)
Persistence and effects of fenamiphos on native algal populations and enzymatic activities in soil. Soil Biology and Biochemistry, 31(11), 1549-1553. https://doi.org/10.1016/s0038-0717%2899%2900078-4
Fenamiphos is a commonly and widely used nematicide and insecticide in agriculture but information on its effects on microorganisms in soil is scarce. The microbial role in th...

Reliable and accurate sequencing of lambda, cosmid and P1 DNAs using modified dye terminator reaction parameters

Journal Article
Harvey, R. J., Harder, S., & Darlison, M. G. (1998)
Reliable and accurate sequencing of lambda, cosmid and P1 DNAs using modified dye terminator reaction parameters. Technical tips online, 3(1), 150-152. https://doi.org/10.1016/S1366-2120%2808%2970126-0
Many laboratories still find the direct sequencing of large DNA templates (i.e. lambda, cosmid and bacteriophage P1 clones) problematic. To date, only limited amounts of seque...
