Upregulation of PSCDBP, TLR2, TWIST1, FLJ35382, EDNRB, and RGS12 gene expression in human myometrium at labor.
The regulatory mechanisms underlying myometrial smooth muscle contractility during labor are poorly understood. The authors therefore investigated the transcriptional profile of the changes that occur in the human myometrium ...
Time4Us: evaluation report
(Child and Family Research Centre, NUI Galway, 2008)
Processing ontology alignments with SPARQL
Solving problems raised by heterogeneous ontologies can be achieved by matching the ontologies and processing the resulting alignments. This is typical of data mediation in which the data must be translated from one ...
A cDNA microarray assessment of gene expression in the liver of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) in response to a handling and confinement stressor
A purpose-designed microarray platform (Stressgenes, Phase 1) was utilised to investigate the changes in gene expression within the liver of rainbow trout during exposure to a prolonged period of confinement. Tissue and ...
A note on the evaluation of a beta-casein variant in bovine breeds by allele-specific PCR and relevance to beta-casomorphin
(Teagasc; De Gruyter Open, 2008)
Two genetic variants of the bovine beta-casein gene (A(1) and B) encode a histidine residue at codon 67, resulting in potential liberation of a bioactive peptide, beta-casomorphin, upon digestion. An allele-specific PCR ...
Augmentation of endogenous cannabinoid tone modulates lipopolysaccharide-induced alterations in circulating cytokine levels in rats
The endogenous cannabinoid system plays an important role in regulating the immune system. Modulation of endogenous cannabinoids represents an attractive alternative for the treatment of inflammatory disorders. This study ...
Hypertonic saline reduces inflammation and enhances the resolution of oleic acid induced acute lung injury
(BioMed Central Ltd., 2008-07-08)
Background: Hypertonic saline (HTS) reduces the severity of lung injury in ischemia-reperfusion, endotoxin-induced and ventilation-induced lung injury. However, the potential for HTS to modulate the resolution of lung ...
A dialogical action research approach to innovation as organisational change.
(Action in Language, Organisations and Information Systems (ALOIS), 2008-05)
This paper argues that dialogical action research (AR) recently proposed by Mårtensson & Lee, provides a novel framework for both relevant and rigorous collaboration between academics and practitioners. The work is presented ...
Building a dolmen: an ISD approach to the management of innovation
This paper addresses a ¿challenge in practice¿ by describing the initial stage of an information systems development (ISD) project to support the management of innovation within a subsidiary of APC-MGE. To begin with, a ...
Measuring knowledge transfer success by D&M
DeLone & McLean's success model has been actively used since its first introduction in 1992. In this article the model is extended to describe the success of knowledge sharing in an information system that included a part ...
