  • Gaffney, Darragh; Cooney, Jakki C.; Magner, Edmond (Springer, 2012)
    Mesoporous silicates (MPS) possess ordered pore structures with pore diameters sufficiently large to accommodate a range of enzymes. The successful immobilization of an enzyme on MPS usually requires modification of the ...
  • Ardiles, Alvaro O.; Grabrucker, Andreas M.; Scholl, Francisco G.; Rudenko, Gabby; Borsello, Tiziana (Hindawi, 2017)
    Synapses, contact points between neurons, are essential elements supporting the ability of neurons to communicate and to transmit relevant information to each other. They play an integral role in brain development and ...
  • Garvey, Marie; Lyons, Rachel; Hector, Ralph D.; Walsh, Cathal Dominic; Arkins, Sean; Cullinane, Ann (MDPI, 2019)
    Multiple locus typing based on sequencing heterologous regions in 26 open reading frames (ORFs) of equine herpesvirus 1 (EHV-1) strains Ab4 and V592 was used to characterise 272 EHV-1 isolates from 238 outbreaks of abortion, ...
  • English, Anne-Marie (University of Limerick, 2018)
    The objectives of this thesis were: 1) to understand the effect of early calf nutrition on the transcriptome of subcutaneous adipose tissue and their downstream effects on the hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular (HPT) axis ...
  • Moloney, Emma (University of Limerick, 2011)
    Streptococcus equi subsp. equi is the causative agent of strangles, a highly contagious upper respiratory infection of horses. A molecular typing scheme and database based on the variability of the S. equi SeM protein has ...
  • Johnson, Gillian P. (University of Limerick, 2019)
    Physical loading is a potent regulator of bone anabolism, yet the cellular mechanisms by which this occurs are poorly understood. Due to the finite lifespan of bone forming osteoblasts, it is hypothesized that these cells ...
  • Perrier, Jean-Philippe; Sellem, Eli; Prézelin, Audrey; Gasselin, Maxime; Jouneau, Luc; Piumi, François; Adhami, Hala Al; Weber, Michaël; Fritz, Sébastien; Boichard, Didier; Le Danvic, Chrystelle; Schibler, Laurent; Jammes, Hélène; Kiefer, Hélène (BioMed Central, 2018)
    Background: Spermatozoa have a remarkable epigenome in line with their degree of specialization, their unique nature and different requirements for successful fertilization. Accordingly, perturbations in the establishment ...
  • Yi-Shen, Zhu; Shuai, Sun; Fitzgerald, Richard J. (Taylor & Francis Open, 2018)
    To date, no extensive literature review exists regarding potential uses of mung bean proteins and peptides. As mung bean has long been widely used as a food source, early studies evaluated mung bean nutritional value against ...
  • Pederzoli, Francesca; Ruozi, Barbara; Duskey, Jason T.; Hagmeyer, Simone; Sauer, Ann Katrin; Grabrucker, Stefanie; Coelho, Romina; Oddone, Natalia; Ottonelli, Ilaria; Daini, Eleonora; Zoli, Michele; Vandelli, Maria Angela; Tosi, Giovanni; Grabrucker, Andreas M. (MDPI, 2019)
    The accumulation of amyloid β (Aβ) triggers a cascade of toxic events in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The KLVFF peptide can interfere with Aβ aggregation. However, the peptide suffers from poor bioavailability and the inability ...
  • Naderi, Yazdan; Panahi, Yunes; Barreto, George E.; Sahebkar, Amirhossein (Medknow Publications, 2019)
    To review the neuroprotective effects of minocycline in focal cerebral ischemia in animal models. By searching in the databases of PubMed, ScienceDirect, and Scopus, and considering the inclusion and exclusion criteria of ...
  • Doherty, Orla M.; Casey, Vincent; McCreevy, Paul; Arkins, Sean (Public Library of Science, 2017)
    Nosebands are used by riders to prevent the horse from opening its mouth, to increase control and, in some cases, to comply with the competition rules. While equestrian texts traditionally recommend that two adult human ...
  • Ryan, Michael P.; Slattery, Shannon; Pembroke, Tony J. (MDPI, 2019)
    ICEpMERPH, the first integrative conjugative element (ICE) of the SXT/R391 family isolated in the United Kingdom and Europe, was analyzed to determine the nature of its adaptive functions, its genetic structure, and its ...
  • Ruozi, Barbara; Belletti, Daniela; Pederzoli, Francesca; Masoni, Martina; Keller, Johannes; Ballestrazzi, Antonio; Vandelli, Maria Angela; Tosi, Giovanni; Grabrucker, Andreas M. (Elsevier, 2017)
    . The formation of extracellular aggregates built up by deposits of β-amyloid (Aβ) is a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Curcumin has been reported to display anti-amyloidogenic activity, not only by inhibiting the ...
  • Mangrinan, Eva Ros (University of Limerick, 2015)
    Biomass harvesting may affect the nutrient pools of forests and impact negatively on forest ecosystems in the long-term. Appropriate knowledge regarding nutrient pools and potential nutrient removal is required for a ...
  • Delaney, Caoimhe (University of Limerick, 2019)
    The horse industry in Ireland is renowned globally and is estimated to be worth approximately €2 billion per annum to the Irish economy. While Ireland excels in horse production the quality of forages fed to horses over ...
  • Sarowar, Tasnuva; Grabrucker, Stefanie; Boeckers, Tobias M.; Grabrucker, Andreas M. (Frontiers Media, 2017)
    RICH2 knockout (RICH2 KO) mice exhibit neophobia in the novel object test. To gain further insight into their anxiety-related phenotype, we subjected these mice to additional behavioral tests to elucidate whether the ...
  • Doherty, Orla M.; Conway, Thomas; Conway, Richard; Murray, Gerard; Casey, Vincent (Public Library of Science, 2017)
    Noseband tightness is difficult to assess in horses participating in equestrian sports such as dressage, show jumping and three-day-eventing. There is growing concern that nosebands are commonly tightened to such an extent ...
  • Barlas, Panagiotis; Heavey, Cathal; Dagkakis, Georgios (D A A A M International Vienna, 2015)
    Discrete Event Simulation (DES) is one of the most effective tools for planning, designing and improving material flows in production. One of the main weaknesses of operating DES is the exertion needed and costs spent on ...
  • Meisel, Hans; Fitzgerald, Richard J. (Cambridge University Press, 2000)
    Opioid agonistic and antagonistic peptides which are inactive within the sequence of the precursor milk proteins can be released and thus activated by enzymatic proteolysis, for example during gastrointestinal digestion ...
  • Dwane, Susan; Durack, Edel; Kiely, Patrick A. (BioMed Central, 2013)
    Background: Cell migration is a fundamental biological process and has an important role in the developing brain by regulating a highly specific pattern of connections between nerve cells. Cell migration is required for ...
