Abscisic acid induced a negative geotropic response in dark-incubated Chlamydomonas reinhardtii (2019)
Journal Article
Wilson, I., Ladomery, M., Macdonald, H., Al-Hijab, L., Gregg, A., & Davies, R. (2019). Abscisic acid induced a negative geotropic response in dark-incubated Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Scientific Reports, 9, https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-019-48632-0

The phytohormone abscisic acid (ABA) plays a role in stresses that alter plant water status and may also regulate root gravitropism and hydrotropism. ABA also exists in the aquatic algal progenitors of land plants, but other than its involvement in s...

Bioprospecting the thermal waters of the Roman baths: Isolation of oleaginous species and analysis of the FAME profile for biodiesel production (2013)
Journal Article
Smith-Bädorf, H. D., Chuck, C. J., Mokebo, K. R., MacDonald, H., Davidson, M. G., & Scott, R. J. (2013). Bioprospecting the thermal waters of the Roman baths: Isolation of oleaginous species and analysis of the FAME profile for biodiesel production. AMB Express, 3(1), 1-14. https://doi.org/10.1186/2191-0855-3-9

The extensive diversity of microalgae provides an opportunity to undertake bioprospecting for species possessing features suited to commercial scale cultivation. The outdoor cultivation of microalgae is subject to extreme temperature fluctuations; te...

Proteomic analysis of a compatible interaction between Pisum sativum (pea) and the downy mildew pathogen Peronospora viciae (2008)
Journal Article
Spencer-Phillips, P. T., Neill, S. J., Macdonald, H., Lewis, M., Slinn, J., Amey, R. C., …Spencer-Phillips, P. T. (2008). Proteomic analysis of a compatible interaction between Pisum sativum (pea) and the downy mildew pathogen Peronospora viciae. European Journal of Plant Pathology, 122(1), 41-55. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10658-008-9313-2

A proteomic approach was used to identify host proteins altering in abundance during Peronospora viciae infection of a susceptible cultivar of pea (Pisum sativum cv. Livioletta). Proteins were extracted from fully developed pea leaflets at 4 days pos...
