  • Sundararajan, Vijayaraghava S.; Gabere, Musa N.; Pretorius, Ashley; Adam, Saleem; Christoffels, Alan; Minna, Lehvaslaiho; Archer, John A.C.; Bajic, Vladimir B. (Oxford University Press, 2012)
    The demand for antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) is rising because of the increased occurrence of pathogens that are tolerant or resistant to conventional antibiotics. Since naturally occurring AMPs could serve as templates ...
  • Kaur, Mandeer; Radovanovic, Aleksander; Essack, Magbubah; Schaefer, Ulf; Maqungo, Monique; Kibler, Tracey; Schmeier, Sebastian; Christoffels, Alan; Narasimhan, Kothandaraman; Choolani, Mahesh; Bajic, Vladimir B. (Oxford Journals, 2009)
    Ovarian cancer (OC) is becoming the most common gynecological cancer in developed countries and the most lethal gynecological malignancy. It is also the fifth leading cause of all cancer-related deaths in women. The ...
  • Essack, Magbubah; Radovanovic, Aleksander; Schaefer, Ulf; Schmeier, Sebastian; Seshadri, Sundararajan V.; Christoffels, Alan; Kaur, Mandeep; Bajic, Vladimir B. (BioMed Central, 2009)
    Esophageal cancer ranks eighth in order of cancer occurrence. Its lethality primarily stems from inability to detect the disease during the early organ-confined stage and the lack of effective therapies for advanced-stage ...
  • Sagar, Sunil; Kaur, Mandeep; Dawe, Adam; Seshadri, Sundararajan V.; Christoffels, Alan; Schaefer, Ulf; Radovanovic, Aleksander; Bajic, Vladimir B. (BMC Cancer, 2008)
    Sodium channels are heteromultimeric, integral membrane proteins that belong to a superfamily of ion channels. The mutations in genes encoding for sodium channel proteins have been linked with several inherited genetic ...
  • Maqungo, Monique; Kaur, Mandeep; Kwofie, Samuel K.; Radovanovic, Aleksander; Schaefer, Ulf; Schmeier, Sebastian; Oppon, Ekow; Christoffels, Alan; Bajic, Vladimir B. (Oxford Journals, 2011)
    Prostate cancer (PC) is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in men. PC is relatively difficult to diagnose due to a lack of clear early symptoms. Extensive research of PC has led to the availability of a large amount ...
  • Blake, Edwin H.; Tucker, William David; Glaser, Meryl; Freudenthal, Adinda (Wiley, 2011)
    The process of community-based co-design is one that explores various solution configurations in a multi-dimensional design space whose axes are the different dimensions of requirements and the various dimensions of designer ...

  • Burchett, Joseph N.; Tripp, Todd M.; Werk, Jessica K.; Howk, J. Christopher; Romeel, Dave; Prochaska, J. Xavier; Ford, Amanda Brady (The American Astronomical Society, 2013)
    Studies of QSO absorber–galaxy connections are often hindered by inadequate information on whether faint/dwarf galaxies are located near the QSO sight lines. To investigate the contribution of faint galaxies to QSO ...
  • Azeez, Nureni A.; Abidoye, Ademola P.; Agbele, Kehinde K.; Adesina, Ademola Olusola (Academic Journals Inc., 2012)
    Grid computing is an emergent computing innovation which offers endless access to computing infrastructure across various organizations (academia and industry). Since this technology allows aggregation of various computer ...
  • Renaud, Karen; Blignaut, Renette; Venter, Isabella M. (Springer, 2013)
    Designing for diversity is a laudable aim. How to achieve this, in the context of mobile phone usage by South African seniors, is a moot point. We considered this question from two possible perspectives: universal ...
  • Koen, Chris; Kanbur, S; Ngeow, C (Oxford University Press, 2007)
    Possible deviations from linearity of the Large Magellanic Cloud Cepheid period–luminosity (PL) and period–luminosity–colour (PLC) relations are investigated. Two data sets are studied, respectively from the Optical ...
  • Kilkenny, David; Koen, Chris (Oxford University Press, 2012)
    New timings of eclipses made in 2010 and 2011 are presented for the hot subdwarf B (sdB) eclipsing binary NSVS 14256825. Composed of an sdB star and a much cooler companion, with a period near 0.1104 days, this system ...
  • Baran, A.C.; Koen, Chris; Pokrzywka, B. (Oxford University Press, 2015)
    We present our analysis of simulated data in order to derive a detection threshold which can be used in the pre-whitening process of amplitude spectra. In case of ground-based data of pulsating stars, this threshold is ...
  • Mugabo, Pierre; Abaniwonda, Mercy, I.; Theron, Danie; Hassan, Shafick, M.; Stander, Marietjie; Van Zyl, Leonie; McIlleron, Helen; Madsen, Richard (OMICS, 2015)
    The objectives of the study were: (1) to determine kanamycin plasma concentrations using liquid chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry (LC-MS), (2) to investigate kanamycin pharmacokinetics (PK) in patients with ...
  • Francis, Tamson; Maneveldt, Gavin; Venter, Jonathan (Springer Verlag, 2008)
    Beach-cast kelp (the most widely used feed for commercially grown South African abalone) is plentiful during winter months when periodic storms cause kelp to wash ashore. During summer, however, this resource is not ...
  • Chetty, Marshini; Tucker, William David; Blake, Edwin H. (SAICSIT, in assocation with ACM, 2004)
    The digital divide between rural and urban areas within developing countries is vast. We investigate how to address this divide by introducing Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) into remote rural areas. Our ...
  • Motswainyana, William M.; Onani, Martin O.; Jacobs, Jeroen; van Meervelt, Luc (International Union of Crystallography, 2012)
    The title complex, [PdCl2(C20H20N2)] CH3CN, was synthesized by the reaction of 2-[(2,6-diethylphenyl)iminomethyl]quinoline with dichlorido(cycloocta-1,5-diene)palladium(II) in dry CH2Cl2. The PdII ion is coordinated by ...
  • Motswainyana, William M.; Onani, Martin O.; Jacobs, Jeroen; van Meervelt, Luc (International Union of Crystallography, 2013)
    The title imino–phosphine compound, [PdCl2(C26H22NP)] - CH3CN, was prepared by reaction of N-[2-(diphenylphosphanyl) benzylidene]-2-methylaniline with dichlorido(cycloocta- 1,5-diene)palladium(II) in dry CH2Cl2. The ...
