This article expands theoretical and empirical understanding of interpersonal relationships under distributed conditions by highlighting the importance and consequences of situation invisibility. In a laboratory study, the authors demonstrate that distributed teammates are significantly more likely than collocated teammates to make internal dispositional(More)
Cell membrane proteins play a vitally important role in influencing the behavior of cells. Knowledge of membrane protein type facilitates the determination of its functions, which has implications in numerous applications including drug design. Due to the increasingly large number of uncharacterized proteins in databanks such as NCBI's RefSeq, there is a(More)
Membrane proteins are an important class of proteins that serve as channels, receptors, and energy transducers in a cell membrane. Knowledge of a given type of cell membrane protein is crucial for determining its function. This paper introduces an automated, in-silico method for identifying different types of membrane proteins based on their amino acid(More)
OBJECTIVES Studies suggest 2 per 1000 people in Dublin are living with HIV, the level above which universal screening is advised. We aimed to assess the feasibility and acceptability of a universal opt-out HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C testing programme for Emergency Department patients and to describe the incidence and prevalence of blood-borne viruses(More)
OBJECTIVES Hurling is Ireland's national sport, played with a stick and ball; injury to the hand is common. A decrease in the proportion of head injury among emergency department (ED) presentations for hurling-related injury has coincided with voluntary use of helmet and face protection since 2003. A similar decrease in proportions has not occurred in hand(More)
First identified case of VIM-producing carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae in the Republic of Ireland associated with fatal outcome. To the editor: Following the recent review of carbap-enem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) in Europe [1], we would like to add that a first case of VIM-1 producing carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae has now(More)
Whole-genome sequencing of 24 Proteus mirabilis isolates revealed the clonal expansion of two cefoxitin-resistant strains among patients with community-onset infection. These strains harboured bla CMY-2 within a chromosomally located integrative and conjugative element and exhibited multidrug resistance phenotypes. A predominant strain, identified in 18(More)
