The metabolism of histamine in the Drosophila optic lobe involves an ommatidial pathway: beta-alanine recycles through the retina
Flies recycle the photoreceptor neurotransmitter histamine by conjugating it to beta-alanine to form beta-alanyl-histamine (carcinine). The conjugation is regulated by Ebony, while Tan hydrolyses carcinine, releasing ...
Helical magnetic order in MnSi thin films
(American Physical Society, 2011-08/01)
We present a study of the magnetic structure of crystalline MnSi(111) thin films grown by molecular beam epitaxy. A combination of polarized neutron reflectometry (PNR) and superconducting quantum interference device ...
The masses of Local Group dwarf spheroidal galaxies: The death of the universal mass profile
We investigate the claim that all dwarf spheroidal galaxies (dSphs) reside within halos that share a common, universal mass profile as has been derived for dSphs of the Galaxy. By folding in kinematic information for 25 ...
Exploring the Properties of the M31 Halo Globular Cluster System
Following on from our discovery of a significant population of M31 outer halo globular clusters (GCs), and updates to the Revised Bologna Catalogue of M31 GCs, we investigate the GC system of M31 out to an unprecedented ...
Herschel observations of a z 2 stellar mass selected galaxy sample drawn from the GOODS NICMOS Survey
We present a study of the far-IR properties of a stellar mass selected sample of 1.5 9.5 drawn from the GOODS NICMOS Survey (GNS), the deepest H-band Hubble Space Telescope survey of its type prior to the installation of ...
An analysis of an evaluation of deep-water coral conservation and management initiatives in the Canadian Maritimes
Protected areas have been identified as the tool of choice for marine conservation, however, their implementation and use can only be deemed successful if regular evaluation of their management occurs. The purpose of this ...
The Impact of the Great Recession on Economic Wellbeing - How Different are OECD Nations and Why?
(John Wiley & Sons, Ltd., 2014)
Assessing and Valuing Damage to the Marine Environment in Accordance with the Polluter Pays Principle for the Practical Purpose of Compensation after Ship-Source Oil Spills
The objective of this study is to evaluate how marine environmental damage caused by a ship-source oil spill is assessed intergovernmentally and nationally for the practical purposes of determining compensation. A comparative ...
PAndAS' progeny: extending the M31 dwarf galaxy cabal
We present the discovery of five new dwarf galaxies, Andromeda XXIII-XXVII, located in the outer halo of M31. These galaxies were found in the second year of data from the Pan-Andromeda Archaeological Survey (PAndAS) of ...
