    BACKGROUND : Most BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation carriers have inherited a single (heterozygous) mutation. Transheterozygotes (TH) who have inherited deleterious mutations in both BRCA1 and BRCA2 are rare, and the consequences ...
  • Zablocki, Olivier; Cowan, Don A.; Rybicki, E.P. (American Phytopathological Society, 2014-12)
    Chlorotic, streak-like symptoms were observed in April 2013 on a single specimen of Albuca rautanenii (Schinz) J.C.Manning & Goldblatt (Family: Hyacinthaceae) found among other plants near Homeb in the Namib Desert, ...
  • Johnson, Riegardt M.; Ramond, Jean-Baptiste; Gunnigle, Eoin; Cowan, Don A.; Seely, Mary (Springer, 2017-01)
    The central Namib Desert is hyperarid, where limited plant growth ensures that biogeochemical processes are largely driven by microbial populations. Recent research has shown that niche partitioning is critically involved ...
  • Gunnigle, Eoin; Frossard, Aline; Ramond, Jean-Baptiste; Guerrero, Leandro D.; Cowan, Don A.; Seely, Mary (Nature Publishing Group, 2017-01-10)
    Microbes in hot desert soil partake in core ecosystem processes e.g., biogeochemical cycling of carbon. Nevertheless, there is still a fundamental lack of insights regarding short-term (i.e., over a 24-hour [diel] cycle) ...
  • Marchal, Kathleen; Van de Peer, Yves; Yao, Yao; Storme, Veronique (PeerJ, 2016-12-21)
    We developed a bio-inspired robot controller combining an artificial genome with an agent-based control system. The genome encodes a gene regulatory network (GRN) that is switched on by environmental cues and, following ...
  • Cowan, Don A.; Van Zyl, Leonardo Joaquim; Nemavhulani, Shonisani; Cass, James; Trindade, Marla (BioMed Central, 2016-12-03)
    BACKGROUND : Soda lakes are unique environments in terms of their physical characteristics and the biology they harbour. Although well studied with respect to their microbial composition, their viral compositions have ...
  • Coetzee, Martin Petrus Albertus; Kinge, T.R.; Mih, A.M. (CSIRO, 2012)
    Ganoderma is an important genus of the Polyporales in the tropics. Identification of tropical species has mainly been based on morphology, which has led to misidentification. This study aimed to elucidate the diversity ...
  • Bihon, Wubetu; Slippers, Bernard; Wingfield, Michael J.; Wingfield, Brenda D.; Burgess, Treena (Springer, 2012-01)
    Introduced populations of organisms typically have reduced diversity compared to those that are native. It is, therefore, unusual that introduced populations of the fungal tree pathogen Diplodia pinea have been shown ...
  • Greeff, Jaco M. (Jacobus Maree); Greeff, Francois A.; Greeff, Andre S.; Rinken, Lucas; Welgemoed, Dawid J.; Harris, Yolanda (Elsevier, 2012-07)
    Extrapair paternity is a crucial parameter for evolutionary explanations of reproductive behavior. Early studies and human testis size suggest that human males secure/suffer frequent extrapair paternity. If these high ...
  • Cowan, Don A.; De Maayer, Pieter (BioMed Central, 2016-11-14)
    BACKGROUND : Protein glycosylation involves the post-translational attachment of sugar chains to target proteins and has been observed in all three domains of life. Post-translational glycosylation of flagellin, the main ...

  • Roux, Carl Z. (South African Society for Animal Science, 2016-10-27)
    The central postulation of the present approach to metabolic rate scaling is that exercise-induced maximum aerobic metabolic rate (MMR) is proportional to the fractal extent (V) of an animal. Total fractal extent can be ...
