Welcome to RVC Repository

RVC Research Online is a repository of the research outputs produced by staff from the Royal Veterinary College (RVC). The aims of the repository are (i) to provide an institutional archive of RVC's research outputs, (ii) to provide access to these outputs and support open science, and (iii) to increase the reach and impact of RVC's research.

<i>Plasmodium</i> LCCL domain-containing modular proteins have their origins in the ancestral alveolate (2024)
Journal Article
De Hoest-Thompson, C., Marugan-Hernandez, V., & Dessens, J. (2024). Plasmodium LCCL domain-containing modular proteins have their origins in the ancestral alveolate. Open Biology, 14(6), https://doi.org/10.1098/rsob.230451

Plasmodium species encode a unique set of six modular proteins named LCCL lectin domain adhesive-like proteins (LAPs) that operate as a complex and that are essential for malaria parasite transmission from mosquito to vertebrate. LAPs possess complex... Read More about <i>Plasmodium</i> LCCL domain-containing modular proteins have their origins in the ancestral alveolate.

Maternal Uterine Artery Adenoviral Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (Ad.VEGF-A 165) Gene Therapy Normalises Fetal Brain Growth and Microglial Activation in Nutrient Restricted Pregnant Guinea Pigs. Reproductive Sciences, https://doi.org/10.1007/s43032-024-01604-w

Fetal growth restriction (FGR) is associated with uteroplacental insufficiency, and neurodevelopmental and structural brain deficits in the infant. It is currently untreatable. We hypothesised that treating the maternal uterine artery with vascular e...
