Effect of metabolic status on conceptus–maternal interactions on day 19 in dairy cattle: II. Effects on the endometrial transcriptome (2017)
Journal Article
Bauersachs, S., Simintiras, C. A., Sturmey, R. G., Krebs, S., Bick, J., Blum, H., …Forde, N. (2017). Effect of metabolic status on conceptus–maternal interactions on day 19 in dairy cattle: II. Effects on the endometrial transcriptome. Biology of Reproduction, 97(3), 413-425. https://doi.org/10.1093/biolre/iox095

The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that the metabolic stresses associated with lactation alter the ability of the endometrium to respond appropriately to the conceptus by examining endometrial gene expression on Day 19 of pregnancy. Imm... Read More about Effect of metabolic status on conceptus–maternal interactions on day 19 in dairy cattle: II. Effects on the endometrial transcriptome.

Genistein crosses the bioartificial oviduct and alters secretion composition (2017)
Journal Article
Simintiras, C. A., & Sturmey, R. G. (2017). Genistein crosses the bioartificial oviduct and alters secretion composition. Reproductive Toxicology, 71, (63-70). doi:10.1016/j.reprotox.2017.04.010. ISSN 0890-6238

The dietary derived isoflavone and oestrogen analogue, genistein, is known to perturb fundamental reproductive events such as implantation and embryo cleavage. However the question of whether genistein is able to traverse the oviduct epithelial monol... Read More about Genistein crosses the bioartificial oviduct and alters secretion composition.

Expression and localization of creatine kinase in the preimplantation embryo (2012)
Journal Article
Forsey, K. E., Ellis, P. J., Sargent, C. A., Sturmey, R. G., & Leese, H. J. (2013). Expression and localization of creatine kinase in the preimplantation embryo. Molecular Reproduction and Development, 80(3), 185-192. doi:10.1002/mrd.22146

Creatine Kinase (CK) catalyses the “creatine shuttle,” the reversible conversion of creatine phosphate to creatine with the liberation of ATP. This article examines the potential role of the creatine shuttle in the provision of ATP during... Read More about Expression and localization of creatine kinase in the preimplantation embryo.

Removal of red light minimizes methylene blue-stimulated DNA damage in oesophageal cells: implications for chromoendoscopy (2009)
Journal Article
Sturmey, R. G., Wild, C. P., & Hardie, L. J. (2009). Removal of red light minimizes methylene blue-stimulated DNA damage in oesophageal cells: implications for chromoendoscopy. Mutagenesis, 24(3), 253-258. doi:10.1093/mutage/gep004

Barrett's oesophagus (BO) carries an increased risk of progression to oesophageal adenocarcinoma. Chromoendoscopy with methylene blue (MB) can be used to facilitate identification of BO and target areas for biopsy. If photoexcited, MB can generate re...
