Protein SUMOylation regulates insulin secretion at multiple stages (2019)
Journal Article
Davey, J. S., Carmichael, R. E., & Craig, T. J. (2019). Protein SUMOylation regulates insulin secretion at multiple stages. Scientific Reports, 9, https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-019-39681-6

Type-II Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) is one of the fastest growing public health issues of modern times, consuming 12% of worldwide health budgets and affecting an estimated 400 million people. A key pathological trait associated with this disease is the... Read More about Protein SUMOylation regulates insulin secretion at multiple stages.

Connecting spiking neurons to a spiking memristor network changes the memristor dynamics (2013)
Presentation / Conference
Gater, D., Iqbal, A., Davey, J. S., & Gale, E. (2013, December). Connecting spiking neurons to a spiking memristor network changes the memristor dynamics. Paper presented at Proceedings of the International Conference on Electronics, Circuits and Systems (ICECS) 2013

Memristors have been suggested as neuromorphic computing elements. Spike-time dependent plasticity and the Hodgkin-Huxley model of the neuron have both been modelled effectively by memristor theory. The d.c. response of the memristor is a current... Read More about Connecting spiking neurons to a spiking memristor network changes the memristor dynamics.

Intraguild predation in winter wheat: Prey choice by a common epigeal carabid consuming spiders (2013)
Journal Article
Symondson, W. O., Davey, J. S., Vaughan, I. P., Andrew King, R., Bell, J. R., Bohan, D. A., …Symondson, W. O. C. (2013). Intraguild predation in winter wheat: Prey choice by a common epigeal carabid consuming spiders. Journal of Applied Ecology, 50(1), 271-279. https://doi.org/10.1111/1365-2664.12008

Predators can provide a valuable ecosystem service by suppressing crop pests. However, intraguild predation, where predators compete for the same prey resource whilst consuming each other, may destabilize population dynamics and increase the risk of...

Suction sampling as a significant source of error in molecular analysis of predator diets (2012)
Journal Article
King, R. A., Davey, J. S., Bell, J. R., Read, D. S., Bohan, D. A., & Symondson, W. O. (2012). Suction sampling as a significant source of error in molecular analysis of predator diets. Bulletin of Entomological Research, 102(03), 261-266. https://doi.org/10.1017/S0007485311000575

The molecular detection of predation is a fast growing field, allowing highly specific and sensitive detection of prey DNA within the gut contents or faeces of a predator. Like all molecular methods, this technique is prone to potential sources of er... Read More about Suction sampling as a significant source of error in molecular analysis of predator diets.

DNA detection rates of host mtDNA in bloodmeals of human body lice (Pediculus humanus L., 1758) (2007)
Journal Article
Davey, J. S., Casey, C. S., Burgess, I. F., & Cable, J. (2007). DNA detection rates of host mtDNA in bloodmeals of human body lice (Pediculus humanus L., 1758). Medical and Veterinary Entomology, 21(3), 293-296. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1365-2915.2007.00688.x

Using polymerase chain reaction, we investigated the extent to which digestion affects the potential to amplify 12S mitochondrial DNA sequences from bloodmeals of individual human body lice (Pediculus humanus L.) (Phthiraptera, Pediculidae) up to 72... Read More about DNA detection rates of host mtDNA in bloodmeals of human body lice (Pediculus humanus L., 1758).
