A characterization of pMPC based on a simulation to gain insight into the mechanism behind the hydration lubrication mechanism.
Characterization of the Downstream Effects of Apical Mistrafficking of Epiregulin and Potential for Transformation in Polarized Epithelial Cells
Loss of epithelial polarity and mistrafficking of Epiregulin may be a driving force for cancer in polarized epithelial cells.
The turning wing kinematics of a ruby-throated hummingbird are determined by use of a blade element model.
An imprinted nanoporous gold substrate was optimized to create a low power Raman biological and chemical sensor.
Individual component radiation testing is an effective way to gather data for the development of modeling software to predict a system's radiation response.
Obesity Contributes to an Accumulation of Ly6chigh Pro-inflammatory Monocytes in the Spleen and White Adipose Tissue
The purpose of this experiment was to see whether or not obesity correlated with an increase in pro-inflammatory monocytes
Hedgehog pathway inhibitors were established as potential remediation treatments for tumor-induced bone disease. Additionally, hypotheses concerning inhibition methods were established for future investigation.
This study investigated the performance effects of plant secondary metabolites on insect performance, and the molecular mechanisms insects use to overcome these toxins.
Regulation of Pro-Inflammatory Phenotypes by Carcinogenic and Non-Carcinogenic Helicobacter pylori strains
In order to quantify H. pylori virulence, the concentration of IL-8 secreted by AGS gastric epithelial cells co-culture with H. pylori strains, isolated from patients with gastritis or gastric adenocarcinoma was measured and compared.
This work develops a Bluetooth phone application to control a modular robotic toolkit using an open source environment.
