  • Burdikova, Suzana; Svindrych, Zdenek; Pala, Jan; Hickey, Cian D; Wilkinson, Martin G.; Panek, Jiri; Auty, Mark A.E.; Periasamy, Ammasi; Sheehan, Jeremiah J. (Frontiers, 2015)
    Cheese, a product of microbial fermentation may be defined as a protein matrix entrapping fat, moisture, minerals and solutes as well as dispersed bacterial colonies. The growth and physiology of bacterial cells in these ...
  • Breen, John; O'Leary, Caitriona (The Royal Irish Academy, 1997)
    Metal levels (iron, zinc, manganese, cobalt, chromium, copper and nickel) were determined in Cerastoderma edule, Mytilus edulis, Monodonta lineata, Patella vulgata, Nucella lapillus, Littorina obtusata and L. littorea at ...
  • Stoikou, Vasiliki; Andrianos, Vangelis; Stasinos, Sotiris; Kostakis, Marios G; Attiti, Sofia; Thomaidis, Nikolaos S; Zabetakis, Ioannis (MDPI, 2017)
    The water aquifers of the regions of Asopos River in Viotia and Messapia in Evia (Greece) have been contaminated with hexavalent chromium (Cr (VI)) and bivalent nickel (Ni (II)). Given that these areas are the two biggest ...
  • 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 ...
  • Nongonierma, Alice B; Schellekens, Harriët; Dinan, Timothy G; Cryan, John F; Fitzgerald, Richard J. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2013)
    Milk protein hydrolysates generated with different starting substrates, including sodium caseinate (NaCN), acid casein (Acid CN), skim milk powder (SMP) and glycomacropeptide (GMP) were demonstrated to behave as serotonin ...
  • Nongonierma, Alice B; Lalmahomed, Mehdeeyah; Paolella, Sara; Fitzgerald, Richard J. (Elsevier, 2017)
    A multifactorial [temperature (40, 50 and 60 °C), hydrolysis time (60, 150 and 240 min) and enzyme to substrate ratio (E:S; 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0%)] design of experiments (DOE) was used to optimise the release of dipeptidyl ...
  • Fitzgerald, Richard J.; Meisel, Hans (Cambridge University Press, 2000)
    Numerous casein and whey protein-derived angiotensin-I-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory peptides/hydrolysates have been identified. Clinical trials in hypertensive animals and humans show that these peptides/hydrolysates ...
  • Schellekens, Harriët; Nongonierma, Alice B; Clarke, Gerard; van Oeffelen, Wesley E.P.A; Fitzgerald, Richard J.; Dinan, Timothy G; Cryan, John F (Elsevier, 2014)
    This study investigates the ability of milk protein-derived peptides to specifically activate the serotonin 2C (5-HT2C) receptor, a key receptor in central regulation of food intake. A dose dependent 5-HT2C receptor ...
  • Nongonierma, Alice B; Fitzgerald, Richard J. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015)
    Tryptophan (W) is an essential amino acid which is primarily required for protein synthesis. It also acts as a precursor of key biomolecules for human health (serotonin, melatonin, tryptamine, niacin, nicotinamide adenine ...
  • Fox, Aaron; Gahan, Jacinta; Ikoyi, I; Kwapinski, Witold; O'Sullvan, Orla; Cotter, Paul D; Schmalenberger, Achim (Elsevier, 2016)
    Biochar has shown great potentials in plant growth promotion but its effect on soil bacteria that potentially support plant growth is less well understood. In this study, the effect of biochar soil amendment was investigated ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
