Alan Bowman - Research Interests My main interest is in the physiology of arthropods, especially ticks and their salivary glands and saliva. The salivary glands are vital organs to the tick and occupy about one-third of the tick's body. The glands are the site of pathogen development and the saliva is the route of disease transmission. I have on-going projects on: Fatty Acid Binding Proteins in Tick Salivary Glands Tick salivary glands contain an intracellular fatty acid binding protein (FABP) postulated to play a role in arachidonate and eicosanoid metabolism. This project assesses the ligand binding characteristics of the recombinant tick FABP and investigates the regulation and localization of its expression. Programmed Cell Death in Tick Salivary Glands After adult ticks have fed on the host, the salivary glands are no longer needed and degenerate over the next few days. This project investigates the mechanisms of this deliberate and non-pathological process and studies the genes and proteins involved. Immunomodulators in Tick Saliva Ticks remain attached to the host for many days without eliciting an immune or inflammatory response capable of rejecting the tick. Compounds in the saliva suppress the host's inflammatory and immune response. This project investigates what these factors are and how they function. alan bowman wedding, editorial, architectural and social photographer alan bowman is a hampshire ( uk ) based photographer who covers the home counties. broadly experienced in social, commercial and editorial photography. as a social photographer he specialises in weddings and black and white portraiture offering the client an individually hand printed product of superb quality. he is a commercial photographer who can offer you a professional quality pack shot for product brochures and advertising literature, editorial press and pr portraiture undertaken for brochure and magazine publications SummaryAlan Bowman XBox Australia Interview Description AusGamers interviews XBox Australia Director Alan Bowman at the Australian launch on 16 November. Covers topics such as the XBox's broadband capabilities, Microsoft's dedication to making the XBox a gaming system first and foremost, some information on the hardware including CPU and DVD. Alan: The Xbox is new technology and we're expecting it to increase the size of the market. One of the things we saw in the US this year, with the Xbox coming along and products from other competitors, the market grew in excess of fifty percent. So in Australia this year, the business has grown about twenty percent, so once we launch and other products come out, you are going to see the market grow quite significantly.
