Chemical Speciation and Bioavailability: change of publishing arrangements

Posted on 24. November, 2014.

We are pleased to announce a forthcoming change in publishing arrangements. From the beginning of the 2015 volume, Chemical Speciation and Bioavailability will be published by Taylor and Francis.

From the Science Reviews archive: UV radiation-induced enterobacterial responses, other processes that influence UV tolerance and likely environmental significance

Posted on 25. March, 2014.

The ability of enterobacteria to become UV-tolerant is important because such tolerance may enable organisms to resist irradiation in the environment, in water treatment, in shell-fish, in stages of food processing, and at locations in the domestic, commercial and hospital environment. 

Non-classical signalling of growth hormone in the chick neural retina?

Posted on 24. March, 2014.

Signalling normally involves the interaction of a ligand with its receptor in target sites. 
This brief review focuses on the possibility that Growth Hormone (GH) in the neural retina of early chick embryos acts non-classically or via 'non-classical' GH-receptors.

Synthesis and antitumour activity of certain pyridol[2,3-d] pyrimidine and 1,8-naphthyridine derivatives

Posted on 24. March, 2014.

In an effort to establish new candidates with improved anticancer activity, we report here the synthesis of various series of 2,4,5,7-tetrasubstituted pyrido[2,3-d ]pyrimidines and their related isosteres substituted 1,8-naphthyridines. The cytotoxic activity of the newly synthesised compounds against human breast cancer cell line, MCF7 was investigated.

From the Science Reviews archive: Effect of HCl addition and temperature on the hetrogeneous chemistry and photochemistry of ClONO2 adsorbed on ice crystals.

Posted on 24. March, 2014.

The depletion of ozone over the Antarctic stratosphere, particularly in the beginning of springtime, has been the subject of a great deal of attention during the last decade. This phenomenon has been also recently observed in the Arctic stratosphere especially during the unusually cold 1995-96 winter.

Nutrimetabonomics: nutritional applications of metabolic profiling

Posted on 20. March, 2014.

An individual’s metabolic phenotype, and ultimately health, is significantly influenced by complex interactions between their genes and the diet. Studying these associations and their downstream biochemical consequences has proven extremely challenging using traditional hypothesis-led strategies. Metabonomics, a systems biology approach, allows the global metabolic response of biological systems to stimuli to be characterized.

Impact of Egg Storage on Embryo Development

Posted on 20. March, 2014.

Prolonged cool egg storage, a common commercial practice with turkey eggs in the USA, has a detrimental effect on hatchability and therefore, is of considerable concern to commercial turkey hatchery operators. In fact, a rule-of-thumb in the hatchery is that for every day after 10-days of storage, hatchability will decrease by 1%.
