Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

A presentation at American Chemical Society Division of Chemical Toxicology, 224th ACS National Meeting, Boston, Massachusetts, August 18-22, 2002. This abstract discusses the construction of cell lines that express individual members of the AKR7A family, and have tested the ability of these enzymes to protect cells against the toxic effects of a range of aldehyde-containing compounds.
