2 8-alkoxyadenosines modulate RNA interference efficacy and off-pathway protein bindingDespite the tremendous potential of short interfering RNA (siRNA) as a novel biopharmaceutical, its therapeutic utility has not been maximized mainly due to lack of proper in vivo delivery vehicle, off-target effects and several off-pathway protein interactions instigating immunostimulation. Judicio...8-alkoxyadenosine, Caspase 2 gene silencing, off-pathway protein binding, off-target effect, RNAi, SiRNA2012-12
3 A chemical biology approach towards the development of strategies to target drug refractory breast cancerThe occurrence of treatment refractory tumors contributes significantly to the morbidity of cancer. Clinical treatment with chemotherapeutics frequently results in robust initial responses but the majority of patients relapse with drug-insensitive forms of the disease.

8 A Hop, Switch, and Jump: Stochasticity in Models of Motor-Mediated Intracellular TransportActive transport of cargoes is critical for cellular function. To accomplish this, networks of cytoskeletal filaments form highways along which small teams of mechanochemical enzymes (molecular motors) take steps to pull associated cargoes. The robustness of this transport system is juxtaposed by th...Mathematics; Biology; Biophysics2018

11 A mathematical model of blood coagulation and platelet deposition under flowThe body responds to vascular injury with two intertwined processes: platelet aggregation and coagulation. Platelet aggregation is a predominantly physical process, whereby platelets clump together, and coagulation is a cascade of biochemical enzyme reactions. Thrombin, the major product of coagulat...Mathematical model; Thrombosis2010-08
12 A minimal type of the 2-adic Weil representationA minimal type of the even 2-adicWeil representation is described. The Hecke algebra of this type is isomorphic to the classical affine Hecke algebra of type Bn. In this way, the Weil representation of a metaplectic group corresponds to the trivial representation of an orthogonal group in the local ...Hecke Algebras; K-Types; Metaplectic Groups; Representation Theory; Weil Representation2013-05
