These included FBN1, ADAMTS2 and TGFB2 which associate with connective tissue disorders (Marfan, Ehlers-Danlos and Loeys-Dietz syndromes), and the LUM-DCN-KERA gene complex involved in myopia, corneal dystrophies and cornea plana. Using index CCT-increasing variants, we find a significant inverse correlation in effect sizes between CCT and keratoconus (r =-0.62, P = 5.30 × 10 -5 ) but not between CCT and primary open-angle glaucoma (r =-0.17, P = 0.2). Our findings provide evidence for shared genetic influences between CCT and keratoconus, and implicate candidate genes acting in collagen and extracellular matrix regulation.]]> Wed 30 May 2018 14:48:58 AEST ]]> Cyanobacterial community composition and bacteria-bacteria interactions promote the stable occurrence of particle-associated bacteria Wed 30 May 2018 12:47:17 AEST ]]> An “All Teach, All Learn” approach to research capacity strengthening in Indigenous primary health care continuous quality improvement Wed 30 May 2018 12:47:09 AEST ]]> Arsenic and other elemental concentrations in mushrooms from Bangladesh: health risks Wed 23 May 2018 17:05:59 AEST ]]> Anatomical and physiological characterisation of central vestibular neuronal populations Wed 23 May 2018 10:40:42 AEST ]]> A stochastic approach for the shear strength of rock discontinuities Wed 23 May 2018 09:53:46 AEST ]]> A reinterpretation of the Romanoff NBS data for corrosion of steels in soils Wed 20 Jun 2018 14:18:32 AEST ]]> Bi-modal trending for corrosion loss of steels buried in soils Wed 20 Jun 2018 14:18:27 AEST ]]> Early participant reported symptoms as predictors of adherence to anastrozole in the International Breast Cancer Intervention Studies II Wed 16 May 2018 15:41:23 AEST ]]> A modified relay autotuner for systems having large broadband disturbances Wed 13 Jun 2018 11:09:15 AEST ]]> Co-occurring depression and alcohol misuse is under-identified in general practice: a cross-sectional study Wed 11 Apr 2018 16:10:21 AEST ]]> Developing effective habitat restoration strategies for the green and golden bell frog (Litoria aurea) through adaptive management Wed 11 Apr 2018 15:57:06 AEST ]]> Embodying hope: intercultural encounters in the (b)orderdands of volunteer tourism Wed 11 Apr 2018 15:18:28 AEST ]]> Effect of 1-MCP and modified atmosphere on the storage life of tomato, pak choy, and choy sum held at an ambient tropical temperature Wed 11 Apr 2018 14:54:49 AEST ]]> Condition monitoring of induction motors based on measurement and analysis of air gap flux spatial harmonics Wed 11 Apr 2018 14:18:15 AEST ]]> Effect of pre and postnatal neurosteroid therapy on neurodevelopment and behaviour Wed 11 Apr 2018 13:05:34 AEST ]]> Design and analysis of stepped wedge cluster randomised trials Wed 11 Apr 2018 11:50:16 AEST ]]> An evaluation of discharge documentation for people with dementia discharged home from hospital – A cross-sectional pilot study Wed 11 Apr 2018 11:08:26 AEST ]]> Dynamics of HF radar backscatter in the middle and high latitude ionospheres Wed 11 Apr 2018 09:41:14 AEST ]]> Grounding globalities in the cosmopolitan practices of youth Wed 11 Apr 2018 09:18:34 AEST ]]> Diffusion kinetics in crystals Tue 17 Apr 2018 15:27:09 AEST ]]> Hashtag #TBI: a content and network data analysis of tweets about traumatic brain injury Tue 17 Apr 2018 14:41:47 AEST ]]> Control and scheduling for systems affected by random packet loss Tue 15 May 2018 12:57:09 AEST ]]> Exchange rate policy, monetary policy and economic growth in Thailand: a macroeconomic study, 1950-2016 Tue 15 May 2018 12:50:21 AEST ]]> A silent patriarch – Kyrillos VI (1902-1971): life and theological legacy Tue 15 May 2018 12:42:19 AEST ]]> An interpretive model for conceptual music Tue 15 May 2018 11:54:53 AEST ]]> Catalytic combustion of ventilation air methane -

Both the bacterial strains exhibited a great potential in remediating weathered hydrocarbons of engine oil. Addition of inorganic fertilizers (NPK), at recommended levels for bioremediation, resulted in significant inhibition in biostimulation/enhanced natural attenuation as well as bioaugmentation. The data on dehydrogenase activity clearly confirmed those of bioremediation strategies used, indicating that this enzyme assay could serve as an indicator of bioremediation potential of oil-contaminated soil. Extraction of TPHs from engine oil-contaminated soil with hydroxypropyl-ß-cyclodextrin (HPCD), but not 1-butanol, was found reliable in predicting the bioavailability of weathered hydrocarbons. Also, 454 pyrosequencing data were in accordance with those of bioremediation strategies used in the present microcosm study, suggesting the possible use of pyrosequencing in designing approaches for bioremediation.]]> Thu 17 May 2018 13:51:27 AEST ]]> A study of Hong Kong managers’ leadership competencies in the financial services industry in the mainland China context Thu 07 Jun 2018 09:54:21 AEST ]]> Hunter and New England HealthPathways: A 4-year journey of integrated care Thu 05 Apr 2018 12:55:09 AEST ]]> Enlisting the willing: a study of healthcare professional-initiated and opt-in biobanking consent reveals improvement opportunities throughout the registration process Thu 05 Apr 2018 12:13:11 AEST ]]> A study of the effects of comparative optimism on entrepreneurial opportunity evaluation in uncertain conditions Thu 05 Apr 2018 12:09:39 AEST ]]> Effectiveness of brief nutrition interventions on dietary behaviours in adults: a systematic review Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:38:02 AEDT ]]> Do medical oncology patients and their support persons agree about end of life issues?

In saturating GABA, the channels desensitized and stopped working. GABA modulated insulin exocytosis and glucose-stimulated insulin secretion. GABAA receptor currents were enhanced by the benzodiazepine diazepam, the anesthetic propofol and the incretin glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) but not affected by the hypnotic zolpidem. In type 2 diabetes (T2D) islets, single-channel analysis revealed higher GABA affinity of the receptors. The findings reveal unique GABAA receptors signaling in human islets β cells that is GABA concentration-dependent, differentially regulated by drugs, modulates insulin secretion and is altered in T2D.]]> Mon 23 Apr 2018 15:21:48 AEST ]]> Differential responses of avian and mammalian predators to phenotypic variation in Australian Brood Frogs Mon 23 Apr 2018 15:21:45 AEST ]]> Activation of the absent in melanoma 2 inflammasome in peripheral blood mononuclear cells from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis patients leads to the release of pro-fibrotic mediators Mon 23 Apr 2018 14:11:49 AEST ]]> Advances in graph labelings Mon 23 Apr 2018 13:04:57 AEST ]]> Epigenetic regulation of progesterone receptor isoforms in human parturition Mon 23 Apr 2018 11:33:41 AEST ]]> Evolutionary wavelet neural networks in data classification and dynamic control Mon 23 Apr 2018 10:23:48 AEST ]]> Dynamic capabilities and managerial cognitions Mon 23 Apr 2018 10:07:12 AEST ]]> Evolution of fluvial meander-belt deposits and implications for the completeness of the stratigraphic record Mon 18 Jun 2018 10:16:29 AEST ]]> Effect of clay and iron sulphate on volatile and water-extractable organic compounds in bamboo biochars Mon 18 Jun 2018 10:09:16 AEST ]]> Application of green chemistry approaches to cytotoxic compounds Mon 16 Apr 2018 13:22:45 AEST ]]> Empathising and systemising in high anxiety states: an investigation of anxiety as a mechanism for divergence in cognitive performance Mon 16 Apr 2018 12:50:04 AEST ]]> Extraction and utilization of olive waste biophenols; antioxidant and anti-pancreatic cancer activity Mon 16 Apr 2018 12:43:13 AEST ]]> Elucidating the mechanisms of steroid-resistant asthma Mon 16 Apr 2018 12:36:01 AEST ]]> Are contemporary practice environments conducive to the learning needs and preferences of Generation Y occupational therapy students?

Sampling and measurements were carried out in 2012 and 2017 in a fire-affected field (burnt site) and in a neighboring non-affected site (control site). The predictive potential of different data analysis procedures (i.e., transient and steady-state) to yield proper Kfs estimates was investigated. In particular, the transient WU1 method and the BB, WU2 and OPD methods were compared. The cumulative linearization (CL) method was used to apply the WU1 method. Values of Kfs ranging from 0.87 to 4.21 mm·h-1 were obtained, depending on the considered data analysis method. The WU1 method did not yield significantly different Kfs estimates between the sampled sites throughout the five-year period, due to the generally poor performance of the CL method, which spoiled the soil hydraulic characterization. In particular, good fits were only obtained in 23% of the cases. The BB, WU2 and the OPD methods, with a characterization based exclusively on a stabilized infiltration process, yielded an appreciably lower variability of the Kfs data as compared with the WU1 method. It was concluded that steady-state methods were more appropriate for detecting slight changes of Kfs in post-fire soil hydraulic characterizations. Our results showed a certain degree of soil degradation at the burnt site with an immediate reduction of the soil organic matter and a progressive increase of the soil bulk density during the five years following the fire. This general impoverishment resulted in a slight but significant decrease in the field-saturated soil hydraulic conductivity.]]> Fri 25 May 2018 17:31:05 AEST ]]> Food addiction support: website content analysis Fri 25 May 2018 17:31:03 AEST ]]> Comparing and contrasting 'innovation platforms' with other forms of professional networks for strengthening primary healthcare systems for Indigenous Australians Fri 08 Jun 2018 12:16:16 AEST ]]> Experimental investigation of hard rock fragmentation using a conical pick on true triaxial test apparatus Fri 08 Jun 2018 12:07:30 AEST ]]> Fear of self-annihilation and existential uncertainty as predictors of worldview defense: comparing terror management and uncertainty theories Fri 04 May 2018 14:05:54 AEST ]]> Fabrication of functionalised biomimetic silica shell – magnetic core particles and their applications in heavy metal ion and fine mineral particle recovery Fri 01 Jun 2018 14:53:02 AEST ]]>
