• Immunity in the newborn: control by IL-13 receptor and dendritic cells 

    Lee, Hyun-Hee, 1972- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
    Neonates are susceptible to microbial infections and allergic reactions due to lack of Th1 immunity. Utilization of a TCR transgenic T cell transfer system, we demonstrated that primary neonatal Th1 cells develop alongside ...
  • Lipid mediators in the development and resolution of experimental lyme arthritis 

    Blaho, Victoria Alison (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
    The focus of my graduate studies was to determine the contribution of members of the eicosanoid cascade, namely the cyclooxygenase enzymes, to the regulation of experimental Lyme arthritis pathology. Using COX-2-specific ...
  • Transcription regulation of adeno-associated viruses 

    Ye, Chaoyang, 1979- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
    The small genome size of adeno-associated viruses demand efficient gene regulation achieved by various strategies. This research compared these strategies from AAV2, AAV5 and bovine-AAV, and found that AAV2 capsid promoter ...
