Description
  • I established an independent company which provided editing and proof-reading services to francophone scientists seeking publication in English journals. My role required the delivery of high quality accurate proofs of research content, which were intended for submission to peer-reviewed journals including The Journal of Nutrition, Cell Transplantation and NMR in Biomedicine. Regular and effective communication with clients, attention to detail and working to a dead line were essential skills fo

Article
Full-text available
Amoebic Gill Disease (AGD) is a disease affecting cultured Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) which is caused by Paramoeba perurans. The immunomodulatory impact of functional foods has previously been demonstrated in salmon. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of a novel fish feed in mitigating the severity and progression of AGD in Atlant...

Full-text available
In aquaculture, recurrence rates of amoebic gill disease (AGD) caused by the ectoparasite Paramoeba perurans are high and no prophylactic strategies exist for disease prevention. In this study, Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) were initially inoculated with P. perurans and following the development of amoebic gill disease were treated with freshwater...
Article
Full-text available
Amoebic Gill Disease (AGD), caused by the ectoparasite Paramoeba perurans is characterised by hyperplasia of the gill epithelium and lamellar fusion. In this study, the initial host response of naïve Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) inoculated with P. perurans was investigated. Using gel-free proteomic techniques and mass spectrometry gill and serum s...
Article

ATP-sensitive K(+) (K(ATP)) channels located on the beta cell plasma membrane play a critical role in regulating insulin secretion and are targets for the sulfonylurea class of antihyperglycaemic drugs. Recent reports suggest that these channels may also reside on insulin-containing dense-core vesicles and mitochondria. The aim of this study was to...
Data
Distribution of various organelles in the OptiPrep density gradient fractions. MIN6 cell homogenates were fractionated by OptiPrep density gradient centrifugation and analysed by immunoblotting to determine the distribution of (a) insulin receptor (a marker protein for the plasma membrane), (b) mGPDH (a marker for mitochondria), (c) LAMP-1 (a marke...
