Characterization of the vaccinia virus ankyrin repeat protein K1 on NF-κB inhibition and its contributions to viral pathogenesis (2017-04-20)All viruses strategically alter the anti-viral immune response to their benefit. The goal of this thesis was to examine how the vaccinia virus (VACV) K1 protein, which is encoded by the K1L gene, modulates the immune ...
(2017-04-20)Methylated sulfur compounds play pivotal roles in the global sulfur and carbon cycles and contribute to global temperature homeostasis. Although the degradation of these molecules by aerobic bacteria has been well studied, ...
(2017-03-28)Toll-like Receptors (TLRs) are important constituents of the immune response, capable of both protecting the host from danger and inciting harm from within. In this Thesis, I present evidence that the last human orphan ...
(2017-02-20)Methanogenic archaea are strictly anaerobic organisms responsible for the production of all biologically produced methane making them key players of the global carbon cycle. These unusual organisms derive their energy from ...
(2017-03-10)Regulation of gene expression by small non-coding RNAs is ubiquitous in all domains of life. In bacteria, small RNAs are known regulators of various stress responses. Diverse mechanisms employed by small RNAs demonstrate ...
