The influence of rainfall on range in a female desert ungulate: The Arabian oryx (Oryx leucoryx) in the Sultanate of Oman (1998)
Journal Article

In this study we investigated the effect of rainfall on the home range (calculated over 90 days) of adult female Arabian oryx (Oryx leucoryx) in a reintroduced population in central Oman. We looked at response to rainfall for six rain events in the p...

Provision of positive and negative selections in retroviral vectors containing the cytosine deaminase gene (1998)
Journal Article

The E. coli cytosine deaminase (CD) provides a negative selection system for suicide gene therapy as CD transfectants are eliminated following 5-fluorocytosine (5FC) treatment. Here we report a positive selection system for the CD gene using 5-fluoro...

Effector systems involved in the insulin secretory responses to efaroxan and RX871024 in rat islets of Langerhans (1998)
Journal Article

One component of the mechanism by which imidazoline compounds promote insulin secretion involves closure of ATP-sensitive K+ channels in the β-cell plasma membrane. Recently, however, it has also been proposed that these compounds may exert important...

Evidence of roughness distributions and interface smoothing in Co/Cu multilayers deposited under energetic particle bombardment (1998)
Journal Article

The interfacial structure of Co/Cu multilayers deposited under energetic particle bombardment is investigated using x-ray reflectivity. The energetic bombardment is varied by controlling the ion bombardment of the growing film. Specially modified unb...
