Role of interleukin-17 signaling in acute periodontal disease
The immune system is a diverse body of highly mobile hematopoetic cells and fixed resident cells. These cells act to protect the host from pathogens and coordinate an effective response through cytokines. An overactive and ...
Autonomic and autoregulatory responses to stressors in young men and women
Although studies have examined the effects of physiological stressors, specifically exercise and posture changes, on autonomic and autoregulatory function no clear conclusions have been made particularly regarding the ...
Potential use of charophytes in the phytoremediation of cadmium-contaminated soils
Cadmium (Cd) is a ubiquitous and toxic heavy metal. A cost-effective approach to Cd removal from soil is phytoremediation, the use of plants to remediate soil. My research investigated the potential use of Chara australis ...
Selective targeting of microvascular gateways for T cell trafficking by interleukin-6
A successful adaptive immune response against invading pathogens or tumor progression depends on the rapid expansion of effector T cell populations and their subsequent delivery to sites of infection or disease. T cell ...
Characterization of the genomic instabilities of sporadic colon cancer
Genomic instability is a hallmark of cancer and includes a range of alterations to the genome such as chromosomal alterations, intrachromosomal alterations and epigenetic alterations. Various forms of genomic instability ...
