Huntington's disease (HD) results from polyglutamine expansion in huntingtin (htt), a protein with several consensus caspase cleavage sites. Despite the identification of htt fragments in the brain, it has not been shown conclusively that htt is cleaved by caspases in vivo. Furthermore, no study has addressed when htt cleavage occurs with respect to the(More)
Attentional deficits are often reported even years after sustaining a closed head injury (CHI). Disturbance of cognitive attentional functions following CHI has been documented in both behavioural and event-related brain potential (ERP) studies. Recently, the possibility that the sequelae of CHI extend to preattentive processes of attention has been pointed(More)
Sea-level rise (SLR) will greatly alter littoral ecosystems, causing habitat change and loss for coastal species. Habitat loss is widely used as a measurement of the risk of extinction, but because many coastal species are migratory, the impact of habitat loss will depend not only on its extent, but also on where it occurs. Here, we develop a novel(More)
As field determinations take much effort, it would be useful to be able to predict easily the coefficients describing the functional response of free-living predators, the function relating food intake rate to the abundance of food organisms in the environment. As a means easily to parameterise an individual-based model of shorebird Charadriiformes(More)
Tinea pedis is a common inflammatory skin condition due to infection by dermatophyte fungi. A number of epidemiological studies have been completed on the frequency of tinea pedis in the community, particularly sporting and occupational groups and schools. Most studies have focused on small, high-risk populations. These include occupational groups involving(More)
Risk factors for coronary heart disease were compared in fifth year boys (15-16 years old) from two schools that were chosen from localities with a fourfold difference in adult mortality from coronary heart disease. One school was in an underprivileged urban locality in the area of increased incidence of heart disease ('high risk') and the other in a(More)
Migratory animals are threatened by human-induced global change. However, little is known about how stopover habitat, essential for refuelling during migration, affects the population dynamics of migratory species. Using 20 years of continent-wide citizen science data, we assess population trends of ten shorebird taxa that refuel on Yellow Sea tidal(More)
A previously unknown species of anostracan is presented and described herein as Eubranchipus stegosusn. sp. This species is unique in that the male bears large, sub-quadrate, transverse, dorsal thoracic projections. Eubranchipus stegosus n. sp. is most closely related to E. moorei and E. holmani and may be endemic to southwestern Georgia. However,(More)
