Molecular Mechanisms Regulating Hepatic Fetuin-A Expression 

Kothari, Vishal (2016-12-05)
Fetuin-A (Fet-A) is a hepatokine, known to inhibit insulin signaling and is associated with diabetes, cardiovascular outcomes and inflammation. Post-translational modification of fetuin-A at different glycosylation and ...

Molecular mechanisms underlying synaptic dysfunction in Aging Alzheimer's disease and Diabetes 

Kariharan, Thiruchelvam (2012-01-19)
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and diabetes (DB) contribute to the development of early brain aging and cognitive dysfunction. Mechanistic basis of cognitive dysfunction in AD and DB is not well elucidated. Resistance to age ...

Molecular modeling, design, and synthesis of some potential selective DNA minor groove alkylators 

Alturki, Mansour (2021-12-03)  ETD File Embargoed
Small molecules-DNA interactions are responsible for many biological processes. The DNA present in normal and tumor cells are almost identical. Therefore, DNA targeting drugs are used only in serious and life-threatening ...

Molecular Photovoltaic Systems Based on Phospholipids/Alkanethiol Hybrid Bilayer Membranes: Photocurrent Generation and Modulation 

Xie, Hong (2012-07-23)
Biological membranes offer an ideal place to assemble necessary components for plant photosynthesis in nature and suggest new strategies to build artificial photosynthetic systems by using lipid bilayers. In this ...

Molecular Photovoltaic Systems Based on Solid-Supported Phospholipids/Alkanethiol Hybrid Bilayer Matrices: Photocurrent Generation and Modulation 

Liu, Lixia (2013-07-19)
Stimulated by the energy crisis and inspired by natural photosynthesis, several molecular photovoltaic (artificial photosynthetic) systems were developed and investigated within the current research. These molecular ...

Molecular phylogenetic characterization of microbial community dynamics associated with freshwater stream environmental organic matter sources 

Newman, Molli (2011-11-30)
The effects of various biotic and abiotic factors on microbial community dynamics during leaf breakdown were assessed through a series of in situ leaf breakdown studies within the Fort Benning Military Installation (FBMI), ...

Molecular predictors of the hypertrophy response to resistance training in young untrained female adults 

Smith, Morgan (2022-07-13)
We determined if the myofibrillar protein synthetic (MyoPS) response to a naïve resistance exercise (RE) bout, or chronic changes in satellite cell number and muscle ribosome content, varied in females that classified as ...

Molecular Responses of Giardia lamblia to Gamma-Irradiation 

Lenaghan, Scott (2008-08-15)
Giardia lamblia (syn intestinalis, syn duodenalis) is an important human pathogen and the etiological agent of giardiasis, the most common gastrointestinal disease in the world. Since its discovery in 1681, Giardia has ...

Molecular signatures and cellular differences in granulosa cells from fertile and subfertile beef heifers 

Hollingsworth, Rachel A. (2023-06-23)  ETD File Embargoed
Subfertility is a leading contributor to economic losses in the cow-calf sector of the beef cattle industry. Cow-calf producers invest significant time and financial resources in the selection and development of replacement ...
