    Introduction: A well-functioning arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is the best modality for vascular access in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) requiring haemodialysis (HD). However, AVFs' main disadvantage is the ...
  • Ron, Donit; Adams, David R; Baillie, George S; Long, Aideen; O'Connor, Rosemary; Kiely, Patrick A (BioMed Central, 2013)
    This perspective summarises the first and long overdue RACK1 meeting held at the University of Limerick, Ireland, May 2013, in which RACK1's role in the immune system, the heart and the brain were discussed and its ...
  • Karpinska, Jolanta; Kuhs, Manuel; Rasmuson, Åke C; Erxleben, Andrea; McArdle, Patrick (International Union of Crystallography, 2012)
    The title compound, C17H19NO4, which is a non-toxic insect growth regulator with the common name fenoxycarb, contains two independent and conformationally different molecules in the asymmetric unit. Although the inter-ring ...
  • Bezuidenhout, Michael; Liu, Pai; Singh, Shalini; Kiely, Maeve; Ryan, Kevin M.; Kiely, Patrick A (Public Library of Science, 2014)
    Group IV Nanowires have strong potential for several biomedical applications. However, to date their use remains limited because many are synthesised using heavy metal seeds and functionalised using organic ligands to make ...
  • Filip, David; McCance, Shaun; Lewis, Dave; Lieske, Christian; Lommel, Arle; Kosek, Jirka; Sasaki, Felix; Savourel, Yves (W3C, 2013)
    The technology described in this document Internationalization Tag Set (ITS) 2.0 enhances the foundation to integrate automated processing of human language into core Web technologies. ITS 2.0 bears many commonalities ...
  • Fox, Aaron (University of Limerick, 2013)
    Biochar amended soils have demonstrated various agronomic benefits, principally a plant growth promotion effect. The char’s impact, however, on macronutrient bio-availability and the microorganisms involved in their ...
  • Lasc, Ioana (University of Limerick, 2011)
    This research addresses synchronisation issues in security protocols for wireless communications. A new class of attacks, termed Suppress-and-Desynchronise (SD) attacks, is introduced. This attack uses the vulnerabilities ...
  • O'Keeffe, Lisa (University of Limerick, 2011)
    This research study is aimed at improving the quality of the mathematics textbooks available for junior cycle students. It is widely agreed that there is room for improvement with regard to the quality of mathematics at ...
  • Comerford, Tom; Filip, David; Rodolfo M.Raya; Savourel, Yves (OASIS, 2014)
    This document defines version 2.0 of the XML Localisation Interchange File Format (XLIFF). The purpose of this vocabulary is to store localizable data and carry it from one step of the localization process to the other, ...
  • Filip, David; Morado Vázquez, Lucía (OASIS XLIFF TC / P&L SC, 2013)
    This report gathers all the Statements of Use (SOU) that were collected during the approval process of the major new version XLIFF 2.0. The SOU were collected between 2nd and 14th April 2014 to satisfy the OASIS TC process ...
  • Crilly, Suzanne; Magner, Edmond (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2009)
    The E degrees' of cytochrome c on a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) modified gold electrode increased by 300 mV immediately on immersion in methanol; on re-immersion of the electrode in aqueous buffer, the original faradaic ...
  • Guo, Kai; Hu, Yuanyuan; Zhang, Yahong; Liu, Baohong; Magner, Edmond (American Chemical Society, 2010)
    The electrochemical properties of cytochrome c (cyt c) immobilized on multilayer nanozeolite-modified electrodes have been examined in aqueous and nonaqueous solutions. Layers of Linde type-L zeolites were assembled on ...
  • Crilly, Suzanne; Magner, Edmond (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2010)
    Changes in the secondary structure of cytochrome c on immersion in methanol were monitored using circular dichroism. These changes occurred immediately in methanol, upon re-immersion in aqueous buffer, the secondary structure ...
