Analysis of the biosynthesis and function of a serotype B glycoform of Moraxella catarrhalis lipooligosaccharides
Moraxella catarrhalis is an important human pathogen and a major cause of otitis media in children and respiratory infection in adults with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Few virulence factors have been ...
Regulators of dendritic growth in rat sympathetic neurons in vivo
Dendrites are the primary site of synapse formation within rat postganglionic sympathetic neurons and are regulated by trophic interactions with the targets, in which they innervate. However, the mechanisms by which trophic ...
Centrosomally localized EVI5 is a novel GTPase activator of the small GTPase Rab11 and may play crucial roles in cytokinesis and neuroblastoma development
Neuroblastoma is a disease that develops due to the failure of neural crest cells to migrate and differentiate properly. The human EV15 gene was isolated and characterized as a result of its location at the breakpoint ...
Development and application of methodology for rapid NMR data collection and protein structure determination
This thesis focuses on the development and application of methodology for rapid NMR data collection and protein structure determination. In chapter 1, simultaneously cycled (SC) NMR is introduced and exemplified by ...
Structure-property relationships in associating polymer solutions
Abstract not available.
Phylogenetic analysis, systematics, and evolution of early Ordovician graptolites
The exact phylogenetic relationships of many early Ordovician graptolites are unknown due to a lack of knowledge about the detailed proximal end structure of these groups. The proximal end structure of graptolite rhabdosomes ...
Method development and application in protein structure prediction, computational molecular docking and network biology
The sequence of the human and other genomes has provided us a list of parts ( e.g ., proteins) in the molecular machine of life. However, the biological functions for most of these "parts" remain unknown. Moreover, our ...
Effects of herpes simplex virus type-1 latency: Associated transcript on sympathetic and sensory neurons
Herpes simplex virus type-1 (HSV-1) primarily infects mucoepithelial tissues of the eye, the orofacial region and to a lesser extent the genitalia. Subsequently, the virus is transported in a retrograde fashion through the ...
