  • Alternative applications of whole genome de novo assembly in animal genomics 

    Whitacre, Lynsey (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)
    Genome sequencing is the process by which the sequence of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) residues that compromise the genome, or complete set of genetic materials of an organism or individual, is determined. Down-stream ...
  • Kinetic study of histidine kinase CheA in bacterial chemotaxis 

    Pan, Wenlin (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)
    Histidine kinase CheA is central to signaling in bacterial chemotaxis. This kinase is responsible for the phosphorylation of two response regulators, CheY and CheB. CheY controls flagellar rotation and thus motility. CheB ...
  • Role of t-type ca 2+ channels in lymphatic pacemaking 

    To, Kim Hung Thien (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)
    Lymphatic smooth muscle (LSM) contracts spontaneously, actively returning interstitial fluid through a network of lymphatic capillaries and collecting lymphatic vessels to the great veins. Dysfunctional lymphatic contractions ...
  • RNA-sequencing analysis in B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia reveals aberrant gene expression and splicing alterations 

    Kholod, Olha (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)
    Background: B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL) is a neoplasm of immature lymphoid progenitors and is the leading cause of cancer-related death in children. The majority of B-ALL cases are characterized by recurring ...
  • Biochemical characterization of clade B and non-B HIV-1 reverse transcriptase 

    Flores, Jacqueline A. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)
    Two classes of drugs: nucleos(t)ide reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) and non-nucleoside RT inhibitors (NNRTIs) target HIV-1 RT, an enzyme required for HIV replication. The first generation NNRTIs (nevirapine and ...
  • The parvovirus minute virus of mice modulates the DNA damage response to facilitate viral replication and a pre-mitotic cell cycle block 

    Fuller, Matthew S. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)
    The DNA damage response (DDR) is a critical cellular network that affords cells the ability to repair DNA damage they have incurred from endogenous and exogenous sources. Recently, it has become appreciated that viruses, ...
  • Expression of IGF2R, IGF2, TGF, and uPAR in a rat model of obesity 

    Bayless, David (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)
    We tested the hypothesis that induction of obesity in lean Long Evans Tokushima Otsuka (LETO) and obesity-prone Otsuka Long Evans Tokushima Fatty (OLETF) would cause the insulin growth factor 2 receptor (IGF2R) and factors ...
