Journal Article
Thapa, S., Bhardwaj, K., Basel, S., Pradhan, S., Eling, C. J., Adawi, A. M., …Tamang, S. (in press). Long-term ambient air-stable cubic CsPbBr3 perovskite quantum dots using molecular bromine. Nanoscale advances, https://doi.org/10.1039/c9na00486f

We report unprecedented phase stability of cubic CsPbBr3 quantum dots in ambient air obtained by using Br2 as halide precursor. Mechanistic investigation reveals the decisive role of temperature-controlled in situ generated, oleylammonium halide spec... Read More

Journal Article
Al-Qaissi, A., Alqarni, S., Javed, Z., Atkin, S. L., Sathyapalan, T., Vince, R., & Madden, L. A. (2019). The CD105:CD106 microparticle ratio is CD106 dominant in polycystic ovary syndrome compared to type 2 diabetes and healthy subjects. Endocrine, https://doi.org/10.1007/s12020-019-02059-9

Background A retrospective analysis was carried out from patients and controls during the past 5 years from a series of studies investigating endothelial microparticles (MP). Methods In total, 319 samples from 207 individuals were included in th... Read More

Side-bridged cyclam transition metal complexes bearing a phenolic ether or a phenolate pendent arm (2019)
Journal Article
Mewis, R. E., & Archibald, S. J. (in press). Side-bridged cyclam transition metal complexes bearing a phenolic ether or a phenolate pendent arm. Polyhedron, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.poly.2019.08.003

Side-bridged cyclam transition metal complexes (M = Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II)) bearing a phenolic ether or phenolate pendent arm have been synthesised. For [NiL1]+ and [CuL1]+, evidence for a phenoxyl radical was obtained (quasi reversible peak at +0... Read More

The histone demethylase enzymes KDM3A and KDM4B co-operatively regulate chromatin transactions of the estrogen receptor in breast cancer (2019)
Journal Article
Jones, D., Wilson, L., Thomas, H., Gaughan, L., & Wade, M. (in press). The histone demethylase enzymes KDM3A and KDM4B co-operatively regulate chromatin transactions of the estrogen receptor in breast cancer. Cancers, 11(8), https://doi.org/10.3390/cancers11081122

Many estrogen receptor (ER)-positive breast cancers develop resistance to endocrine therapy but retain canonical receptor signalling in the presence of selective ER antagonists. Numerous co-regulatory proteins, including enzymes that modulate the chr... Read More

Olive pomace oil can be used as an alternative carbon source for clavulanic acid production by Streptomyces clavuligerus (2019)
Journal Article
Young, T., Li, Y., & Efthimiou, G. (in press). Olive pomace oil can be used as an alternative carbon source for clavulanic acid production by Streptomyces clavuligerus. Waste and biomass valorization, https://doi.org/10.1007/s12649-019-00719-5

Clavulanic acid is an important drug, both medically and economically. It is used to combat bacterial resistance to β-lactam antibiotics and is on the World Health Organisation’s List of Essential Medicines in combination with amoxicillin. An olive o... Read More

A plant-like mitochondrial carrier family protein facilitates mitochondrial transport of di- and tricarboxylates in Trypanosoma brucei (2018)
Journal Article
Colasante, C., Zheng, F., Kemp, C., & Voncken, F. (2018). A plant-like mitochondrial carrier family protein facilitates mitochondrial transport of di- and tricarboxylates in Trypanosoma brucei. Molecular and Biochemical Parasitology, 221, 36-51. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.molbiopara.2018.03.003

The procyclic form of the human parasite Trypanosoma brucei harbors one single, large mitochondrion containing all tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle enzymes and respiratory chain complexes present also in higher eukaryotes. Metabolite exchange among sub... Read More
