(2010-08-20)This thesis is devoted to the development, synthesis, properties, and applications of nano materials for critical technologies, including three areas: (1) Microbial contamination of drinking water is a serious problem ...
(2015-11-24)Fluorescence microscopy has been an essential tool in biology. However, its imaging resolution has been limited around >200 nm in lateral dimensions, and >500 nm in axial dimension, leaving many biological structures too ...
Characterization of the glycosylation and signal peptide sequences within the vaccinia virus m2 protein and influence on ERK1/2 and NF-kB activation (2011-01-21)Activation of the NF-κB transcription factor during cellular infection establishes an anti-viral state via upregulation of proinflammatory proteins. Wild-type vaccinia virus (VV) strains subvert the immune response by ...
Characterizing the epidemiology of ranavirus in North American chelonians: diagnosis, surveillance, pathogenesis, and treatment (2012-09-18)Ranaviruses have been proposed as a major threat to amphibian biodiversity, however the impact of these pathogens on reptiles is less well understood. In this dissertation, a quantitative PCR was developed that was 100% ...
(2013-05-28)This dissertation focuses ultimately on the topic of evolution, which is the foundation of modern biology. I hope to understand, in a general sense, evolution on a population scale by investigating individual level ...
(2014-01-16)Cancer contributes substantially to overall mortality and morbidity worldwide, resulting in considerable research focused on treatments. Yet many types of cancers continue to have a poor prognosis . Cancer is an incredibly ...
Polyadenylation of ribosomal RNA in response to picornavirus infection in honey bees (Apis mellifera) (2012-09-18)At least eighteen different picornaviruses can infect honey bees (Apis mellifera). The combination of the virulence of these pathogens as well as their transmissibility through Varroa destructor, an ectoparasitic mite, can ...
Roles of singlet oxygen and triplet excited state of dissolved organic matter formed by different organic matters in bacteriophage MS2 inactivation (2013-02-03)Inactivation of bacteriophage MS2 by reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced by irradiation with simulated sunlight, containing visible light and ultraviolet light with wavelengths greater than 320 nm, was investigated. ...
(APS Press, 2007-05)Soybean mosaic virus (SMV) is an aphid- and seed-transmitted virus that infects soybean (Glycine max) plants and causes significant yield losses. Seed-borne infections are the primary sources of inoculum for SMV infections. ...
