Heat shock proteins in vascular disease - a review (2005)
Journal Article
Mehta, T., Greenman, J., Ettelaie, C., Venkatasubramaniam, A., Chetter, I., & McCollum, P. (2005). Heat shock proteins in vascular disease - a review. European journal of vascular and endovascular surgery : the official journal of the European Society for Vascular Surgery, 29(4), 395-402. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ejvs.2005.01.005

Introduction There is growing evidence that heat shock proteins (HSPs), a family of stress-inducible proteins may be involved in the pathogenesis of atherosclerotic vascular diseases. Here, we systematically review the evidence behind this notion.... Read More

The Iberian cyprinid fauna, characterized by the presence of numerous endemic species, has suffered from significant habitat degradation. The critically endangered Squalius aradensis is restricted to small drainages of southern Portugal, habitats tha... Read More

Mate guarding, male attractiveness, and paternity under social monogamy (2005)
Journal Article

Socially monogamous species vary widely in the frequency of extrapair offspring, but this is usually discussed assuming that females are free to express mate choice. Using game-theory modeling, we investigate the evolution of male mate guarding, and... Read More

Observing a three-tank system (2005)
Journal Article
Hou, M., Xiong, Y., & Patton, R. (2005). Observing a three-tank system. IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology, 13(3), 478-484. doi:10.1109/TCST.2004.839578

Observability analysis and observer synthesis are studied for a three-tank water process. Observability of the process is considered under various assumptions on measurements. The observer design takes into account singularity of nonlinear observers.... Read More

Aims: The 6-min walk test (6-MWT) is used to estimate functional capacity. However, in elderly patients with chronic heart failure (CHF): (i) 1 year reproducibility of the 6-MWT; (ii) sensitivity of the 6-MWT to self-perceived changes in symptoms of... Read More

Conservation of cancer genes in the marine invertebrate Mytilus edulis (2005)
Journal Article
Ciocan, C. M., & Rotchell, J. M. (2005). Conservation of cancer genes in the marine invertebrate Mytilus edulis. Environmental Science and Technology, 39(9), (3029-3033). doi:10.1021/es0400887. ISSN 0013-936X

Mussels are susceptible to a wide range of environmental toxicants, including carcinogens, and thus are often employed as bioindicator species. To elucidate the molecular aetiology of such neoplastic damage, we have cloned Mytilus edulis homologues o... Read More
