• Caveolin-1 A scaffold for microcompartmental organization of membrane-associated glycolysis 

    Hernandez, Mark J. (Mark Jerry), 1979- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
    The role of membrane caveolae in the compartmentation of membrane glycolytic metabolism indicates a pivotal role of caveolin in the localization of glycolytic enzymes to this membrane domain. This dissertation demonstrates ...
  • Lipotoxicity in smooth muscle 

    Mattern, Heather M., 1979- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
    Atherosclerosis and bladder dysfunction can both result from the high lipid levels that occur with obesity and diabetes and can cause cell dysfunction and death, termed lipotoxicity, in various cell types. However, ...
  • Vascular smooth muscle metabolism and pyruvate dehydrogenase 

    Ward, Kathryn R., 1985- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    In dyslipidemic states, most muscle types preferentially utilize fatty acids rather than glucose largely due to modulation of the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex (PDH) activity by pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase (PDK). We ...
