In this report we document the results of several independent studies testing the sensitivity, specificity and reliability of the Prionics Western blotting (PWB) procedure to detect bovine and ovine disease-specific, protease-resistant prion protein (PrP(Sc)). Validation of the technique was obtained by blind analysis of samples from cattle affected with(More)
The present investigation is concerned with the postnatal changes in size, morphology and weight of anterior deciduous teeth (maxillary and mandibular central and lateral incisors and canines) in infants aged 0-46 weeks. Relating tooth weight and height to the age of the infant revealed the time at which each tooth achieves its maximum crown height and root(More)
Web archive collection search presents the usual set of technical difficulties searching large collections of documents. It also introduces new challenges often at odds with typical search engine usage. This paper outlines the challenges and describes adaptation of an open source search engine, Nutch, to Web archive collection search. Statistics and(More)
High levels of loss of distal markers on 17p13.3 in breast cancer suggested the presence within the region of at least one tumour-suppressor gene. Here we describe the derivation of two biallelic polymorphisms from the 17p telomeric yeast artificial chromosome (YAC) TYAC98. Polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) and(More)
BACKGROUND The CXCL10/CXCR3 signalling mediates paracrine interactions between tumour and stromal cells that govern leukocyte trafficking and angiogenesis. Emerging data implicate noncanonical CXCL10/CXCR3 signalling in tumourigenesis and metastasis. However, little is known regarding the role for autocrine CXCL10/CXCR3 signalling in regulating the(More)
