  1. Cloning and expression of a functionally active truncated N-glycosylated KSHV complement regulatory protein and immunohistochemical studies with the anti-KCP peptide antibody
    Gomes Pereira, Neuza Alexandra, 2017-10-13T07:47:36Z, University of Cape Town
    Kaposi sarcoma herpes virus (KSHV) is a typical DNA virus that is associated with a number of proliferative diseases including Kaposi"s sarcoma. The KSHV open reading frame (ORF) 4 encodes a complement regulatory protein (Kaposi complement-binding protein, KCP) that binds complement proteins and inh ...
  2. Characterisation of the cold-shock response in Mycobacterium smegmatis
    Shires, Karen Lesley, 2017-10-13T13:09:11Z, University of Cape Town
    The response of Mycobacterium smegmatis to a cold shock was investigated in order to gain insight into the stress responses of members of the genus Mycobacterium. Mycobacterium smegmatis cultures were shocked from 37°C to 30°C, 25°C, 15°C, and 10°C and the effects on both growth (ATP concentration, ...
  3. The Mycobacterium smegmatis "Proteome" : effects of growth phase on total protein synthesis and on the response to heat shock
    Ntolosi, Bongi Audrey, 2017-10-13T07:45:25Z, University of Cape Town
    As an initial step towards characterisation of the molecular processes that define the phenotype of the mycobacterial stationary phase, the effect of growth phase of Mycobacterium smegmatis on total protein synthesis and on the heat shock response was investigated. De novo protein synthesis was moni ...
  4. Molecular methods for the detection of TEM- and SHV-related beta lactamase genes in members of the Enterobacteriaceae
    Whitelaw, Andrew Christopher, 2017-10-13T07:49:13Z, University of Cape Town
    Bacterial resistance to antibiotics is a common and important clinical problem. Beta lactam resistance in Gram negative bacilli is mediated predominantly by beta lactamases, enzymes able to hydrolyse the beta lactam ring. The commonest plasmid mediated beta lactamases in the Enterobacteriaceae are t ...
  5. Computer assisted audiometric evaluation system
    Weiss, Martin, 2017-10-13T13:10:32Z, University of Cape Town
    A computer-based audiometric evaluation system has been developed. The system makes use of an IBM PC/XT/AT compatible personal computer to perform pure tone and speech tests and · comprises a plug-in card and custom software. The card contains pure tone and masking noise generators, together with am ...
  6. The Mycobacterium tuberculosis KatG gene : identification of a novel function and analysis of the regulation of expression
    Mulder, Michelle Anne, 2017-10-13T07:45:51Z, University of Cape Town
    A clone containing the terminal third of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis katG gene was previously shown to confer resistance to ethyl methane sulfonate on DNA repair-deficient Escherichia coli cells. The first aim of this study, therefore, was to examine the role played by the M tuberculosis katG gen ...
  7. Antimicrobial susceptibility of Acinetobacter isolates from Groote Schuur Hospital region : an investigation of the appropriateness/validity of the NCCLS zone size criteria
    Ben-Ismaeil, B I, 2017-10-13T13:37:56Z, University of Cape Town
    Since the 1970s, relatively uncommon species of non-enteric gram-negative bacilli have emerged as nosocomial colonizers and pathogens. Among them, one of the most significant genera is Acinetobacter, which has given rise to an increasing number of reports of nosocomial infections. The introduction o ...
  8. Analysis of practical Surgical experience and Case Reports, Part III
    Rousseau, Theodore Emile, 2017-10-13T13:44:24Z, University of Cape Town
  9. The influence of the Talmud, Midrach and Agadah on the work of S.Y. Agnon.
    Mark, Iehezkel, 2017-10-13T13:13:45Z, University of Cape Town
  10. Subjective well-being amongst children in the Western Cape : multi-group analysis across three age groups
    Witten, Heidi Kim, 2017-10-13T08:55:49Z, University of the Western Cape
