An ATP Receptor in Tetrahymena
ATP is an excitatory neurotransmitter in most multicellular organisms. However, preliminary evidence suggests that ATP receptors are found even in unicellular organisms, specifically in the ciliate Tetrahymena. This evidence ...
Membrane Lipid Effects on Ion Channel Functions
Collaborative Research: Social Networking Tools to Enable Collaboration in the Tobacco Surveillance, Epidemiology, and Evaluation Network (TSEEN)
A highly publicized report by the American Cancer Society noted that cancer has<br/>surpassed heart disease to become the number one killer of adults under the age of 85<br/>in the United States today. At the ...
Post-transcriptional Control of rbcL Gene Expression in the C4 dicots Amaranth and Flaveria Bidentis
Amaranth and Flaveria bidentis are dicotyledonous plants that use the highly efficient C4 pathway of photosynthesis. This laboratory has previously shown that genes encoding the large subunit (LSU, produced from the ...
Post-transcriptional control of C4 RbcS Gene Expression in Flaveria bidentis
Flaveria bidentis is a dicotyledonous (broadleaf) plant that utilizes the highly efficient C4 photosynthetic pathway. C4 plants possess a specialized leaf anatomy consisting of two photosynthetic cell types, the bundle ...
Translational Control of RuBPCase Gene Expression
9728547 Berry/Gollnick Amaranth is a dicotyledonous grain plant that uses the highly efficient c4 pathway of photosynthesis. In amaranth, the expression of genes encoding the large subunit (LSU, produced from the plastid-encoded ...
CAREER: Collective transport near quantum critical points in superconducting nanostructures
Technical Abstract:<br/>This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5). This Faculty Early Career Award funds a proposal that seeks to make significant impact on our ...
Collaborative Research: The Hybrid Integration of Plasmonic Interferometer Sensors and Active Optoelectronic Devices on a Single Microfluidic Chip
The objective of this program is to create a highly integrated sensor system through hybrid integration of passive plasmonic interferometers and Si waveguide array coupled active optoelectronic devices on a single microfluidic ...
Allosteric Effects of DNA on Bacteriophage 434 Repressor Function
The DNA sequence to which a protein binds can profoundly affect the ability of the protein-DNA complex to participate in gene regulatory processes. Hence, DNA is more than a passive platform onto which proteins assemble, ...
Translational Control of RuBPCase Gene Expression in Amaranth
Berry 9316806 Photomorphogenesis, the phenomenon of growth and development in response to light, provides a valuable experimental system to study the control of gene expression by environmental stimuli. In Amaranth seedlings, ...
