The Effect of Interfacial Chemical Bonding in TiO2-SiO2 Composites on Their Photocatalytic NOx Abatement Performance Amer Hakki1, Lu Yang1,2, Fazhou Wang2, Donald E. Macphee1 1Department of Chemistry, University of Aberdeen, 2State Key Laboratory of Silicate Materials for Architectures, Wuhan University of Technology The focus of the present work is to establish means to generate and quantify levels of Ti-O-Si linkages and to correlate these with the photocatalytic properties of the supported TiO2.
Live-cell Video Microscopy of Fungal Pathogen Phagocytosis Leanne E. Lewis1, Judith M. Bain1, Blessing Okai1, Neil A.R. Gow2, Lars Peter Erwig1,2 1Division of Applied Medicine, University of Aberdeen, 2Aberdeen Fungal Group, University of Aberdeen We describe methods for live-cell video microscopy of Candida albicans phagocytosis by macrophages. These methods enable stage-specific analysis of macrophage migration, recognition, engulfment and phagosome maturation and reveal novel aspects of phagocytosis.
Production and Titering of Recombinant Adeno-associated Viral Vectors Christina McClure*1, Katy L. H. Cole*1, Peer Wulff1, Matthias Klugmann2, Andrew J. Murray1,3 1School of Medical Sciences, College of Life Sciences and Medicine, University of Aberdeen, 2Translational Neuroscience Facility and Department of Physiology, School of Medical Sciences, University of New South Wales, 3Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics, Columbia University Recombinant adeno-associated virus (rAAVs) vectors are becoming increasingly valuable for in vivo studies in animals. We describe how rAAVs can be produced in the laboratory and how these vectors can be titered to give an accurate reading of the number of infectious particles produced.
