PROBING THE MOLECULAR MECHANISMS OF PATHOGENIC AND NON-PATHOGENIC
Atomic force microscopy (AFM) has been used to probe some of the biophysical properties of virulent and avirulent
EXPERIMENTAL OBSERVATIONS OF NON-METHANE HYDROCARBONS AND NOX SOURCES IN URBAN AND RURAL LOCATIONS
Non-methane hydrocarbons (NMHCs) and NO + NO2 (NOx) are precursors for photochemical smog which includes particulate matter and ozone. NMHCs and NOx have both biogenic and anthropogenic sources. This work characterizes ...
SYNERGISTIC INFLUENCES OF OSCILLATING PRESSURE, PERFUSION, AND GROWTH FACTORS ON CHONDROGENESIS IN A NOVEL CENTRIFUGAL BIOREACTOR
Defects in articular cartilage (AC) cannot be healed spontaneously primarily because AC is avascular and aneural. Currently available surgical techniques are also incapable of restoring damaged AC. Therefore, AC tissue ...
Analysis of the anti-migraine effects of THC using home cage wheel running
Migraine is a common neurological disorder characterized by severe headache and depression of normal activity. Despite its marked prevalence, migraine is poorly treated and no new anti-migraine agents have emerged in over ...
MYCOPLASMA BOVIS ASSOCIATED DISEASES: MODELING STRESS AND ITS EFFECT ON BOVINE IMMUNE FUNCTION
Mycoplasma bovis associated diseases are newly emerging causing significant economic losses in the cattle industry. Therefore, it is necessary to understand the pathogenesis of M. bovis to develop new preventive methods ...
ENHANCING SPERM PRODUCTION IN THE BULL
Spermatogenesis is a complex process highly regulated mainly by somatic cells of testes, the Sertoli cells. The number of Sertoli cells for a male is fixed between birth and puberty, and does not increase after puberty ...
Isoelectric focusing and isotachophoresis on integrated microchips
Progress in proteomic research has increased the demand for high-throughput analysis of biological samples. The workhorse for protein separation and identification is still mainly the traditional two-dimensional polyacrylamide ...
Mathematical modeling and nuclear magnetic resonance techniques to understand electrochemically active biofilms
The objective of this dissertation was to explore the electron transfer capabilities of electrochemically-active biofilms by employing mathematical modeling and nuclear magnetic resonance techniques. This dissertation is ...
Why Should We Have to Buy Our Own Things Back? The Struggle over the Spalding-Allen Collection
In 1836, Henry Spalding and his wife Eliza joined Marcus and Narcissa Whitman on a mission to bring Christianity to the Indians of the Oregon Country. In 1846, Spalding acquired Nez Perce clothing, artifacts, and horse ...
