In Neisseria meningitidis, iron-responsive gene regulation is mediated primarily by the ferric uptake regulator (Fur) protein. When complexed with iron, Fur represses gene expression by preventing transcription initiation. Fur can also indirectly activate gene expression via the repression of regulatory small RNAs (sRNA). One such Fur- and iron-regulated(More)
Leaf hydraulic conductance (Kleaf) plays a significant part in plant-water regulation. In walnut leaves, Kleaf is stimulated by irradiance and closely relates to the accumulation of JrPIP2s aquaporin transcripts, but it is independent of stomatal aperture. To provide an insight into the early molecular events occurred during light-induced Kleaf, a(More)
In this cross-sectional study, we surveyed 275 students from representative courses across four levels of the New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF) to elicit their expectations of the nature of the skills and knowledge, and the degree of self-management and collaboration, required for their courses. We compared their responses to the expectations set(More)
The Barcelonagram is a Monte Carlo simulator recently designed in order to take account of the behaviour of living systems. In this paper we apply this technique to real bacterial growth in different and significant experimental conditions, namely (i) the growth of the Serratia marcescens in a minimal glucose-limited medium, (ii) the temperature effect on(More)
