Increased expression of Alzheimer's disease related genes in obesity
Many epidemiological studies have demonstrated that obesity is associated with an increased incidence and prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) which is characterized by plaques of β-amyloid (Aβ) peptides formed from its ...
Acetylcholine receptor-channel gating
The probability that muscle type acetylcholine receptors become conductive to ions increases in response to binding of two ligand molecules. The mechanism of this gating reaction is not yet fully understood. A wide range ...
Photoactivated 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition as a new bioorthogonal reaction
A mild, photoactivated 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition procedure based on photolysis of 2,5-disubstituted tetrazoles was successfully developed to serve as a new bioorthogonal reaction called photoclick chemistry. This procedure ...
Molecular Beam Epitaxy and Scanning Probe Microscopy of manganese arsenic based heterostructures for spintronics
Research in the field of semiconductor spintronics aims to exploit the electron spin degree of freedom, in addition to its charge, for logic device applications. Progress in semiconductor spintronics has been impeded by ...
Quantum dots: Structures, properties, and application
In this dissertation, we investigate the properties of colloidal and self-assembled semiconductor QDs, which are formed in structurally different matrixes: liquid and solid. We present nanosecond photoluminescence processes ...
Low level laser therapy in the management of temporomandibular disorders
This double blind randomized controlled trial (RCT) evaluated the dose effect of Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) as an adjunctive intervention in the treatment of myofascial pain of the masseter muscles. This study also ...
In-vitro ultrasound evaluation of flow in a saccular aneurysm treated with a stent
The purpose of this thesis is to evaluate blood flow and density inside intravascular stenting in the straight-vessel and curved-vessel aneurysm models and to investigate the effect of treatment with intravascular stenting. ...
Two classes of virtually fibered Montesinos links of type SL2
We find two new infinite families of virtually fibered Montesinos links of type [special characters omitted].
Development of computational and chemical tools to improve methods for targeting RNA with small molecules
The ubiquitous role of RNA in living systems is becoming more and more apparent each year. Historically RNA was treated as a passive carrier of genetic information from its more stable chemical brother DNA, to a more ...
On the use of excess entropy scaling to describe the dynamic properties of molecular fluids
Relationships between thermodynamic and kinetic properties of molecular fluids have a wide variety of applications. The development of these relationships provides a means to predict one property based upon knowledge of ...
