Deposit-feeding sea cucumbers enhance mineralization and nutrient cycling in organically-enriched coastal sediments
Bioturbators affect multiple biogeochemical interactions and have been suggested as suitable candidates to mitigate organic matter loading in marine sediments. However, predicting the effects of bioturbators at an ecosystem ...
FSL-RFG(Maleimide) FSL construction kit
(AUT University, 2011)
The FSL-RFG(Maleimide) FSL Construction Kit is for use in creating Function-Spacer-Lipid (FSL) constructs for use in non-covalent cell-surface modification/engineering of cellular membranes, viral particles, liposomes, or ...
Development and validation of antibody screening cells specifically designed for Asian populations - the first example of the addition of peptide antigens to human red cells using KODE technology
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
Background: Alloantibodies to antigens displayed on variant glycophorins are common in many Asian populations and have been shown to cause both transfusion reactions and haemolytic disease of the foetus and newborn new ...
Thin terrestrial sediment deposits on intertidal sandflats: effects on pore-water solutes and juvenile bivalve burial behaviour
(EGU Journals, 2014)
Nearshore zones experience increased sedimentation due to coastal development and enhanced loads of fine terrestrial sediment (hereafter, TS) in river waters. Deposition of TS can alter seabed biogeochemical processes but ...
Wave-induced H2S flux sustains a chemoautotrophic symbiosis
(American Society of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), 2005)
Symbioses involving sulfur-oxidizing bacteria and invertebrate hosts require a source of reduced sulfur, a source of O-2, and transport mechanisms that ensure them a supply of both. We investigated these mechanisms using ...
Effect of the brittle star Amphiura filiformis (Amphiuridae, Echinodermata) on oxygen flux into the sediment
(American Society of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO) - Blue Policies in RoMEO, 2003)
O-2 plays a key role in early sedimentary diagenetic processes, but the effect of most macrofaunal species on the pathways and rates of supply of O-2 into the seabed are not well known. We investigated the effect of the ...
NIWA news: going under ice to measure microbial mats
The Dry Valley region of Southern Victoria Land, the largest icefree region of Antarctica, is one of the coldest and driest deserts in the world. There are numerous meltwater lakes in this region thanks to two regional ...
Proposal for monitoring the Te Whanganui-a-Hei Marine Reserve

Terrigenous deposits in coastal habitats: effects on the oxygenation of marine sediment
(AUT University, 2010)
Biotin-kodecytes - novel function-spacer-lipid (FSL) modified cells capable of being recovered from the circulation after 3 days
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2010)
The ability to modify a population of blood cells with both an antigen of interest and an identification-recovery label, infuse them into the circulation of an animal, and then visualize or recover a sample of the infused ...
