The Imaging and Medical beamline at the Australian Synchrotron achieved ;first light' in December 2008. Here, the first experiments performed on the beamline are reported, which involved both X-ray imaging and tomography studies for a range of samples. The use of a plastic-edge phantom for quantitative measurements of contrast and resolution proved to be(More)
Viral diseases, such as Alfalfa mosaic virus (AMV), cause significant reductions in the productivity and vegetative persistence of white clover plants in the field. Transgenic white clover plants ectopically expressing the viral coat protein gene encoded by the sub-genomic RNA4 of AMV were generated. Lines carrying a single copy of the transgene were(More)
This has been a team effort, involving a large number of people. Paul Jones and Ilias Livanos contributed to the spatial analysis described in Chapter 4. Andrew Holden and Peter Millar made important contributions to the data analysis and processing. Thanks are also due to Amanda Kerry for word processing and related assistance and to Jackie Wilson for help(More)
The value of using synchrotron radiation diffraction (SRD) for characterising standard reference materials (SRMs), as a supplement to laboratory x-ray powder diffraction (XRD) analysis, has been demonstrated with the National Institute of Standards and Technology LaB6 material NIST SRM 660. Measurements were performed under in vacua conditions with the(More)
The first observation of a true geometrical focus of X-rays well beyond the exit of a paraboloidally tapered glass monocapillary is reported. An intensity gain of 250 +/- 20 into a 6 x 9 mum pinhole for 8 keV X-rays and transmission efficiencies of more than 90% below 20 keV were observed.
VACM-1/CUL5 is a member of the cullin family of proteins involved in the E3 ligase-dependent degradation of diverse proteins that regulate cellular proliferation. The ability of VACM-1/CUL5 to inhibit cellular growth is affected by its posttranslational modifications and its localization to the nucleus. Since the mechanism of VACM-1/CUL5 translocation to(More)
An eight-position capillary sample spinning stage has been developed for use in conjunction with the versatile vacuum diffractometer (BIGDIFF) at BL20B at the Photon Factory. BIGDIFF is often used in its powder diffraction mode using powders mounted in capillaries and up to eight imaging plates to record the diffraction pattern from the sample. Using the(More)
