11 Moelling, Leah I.Eurypterid paleoecology : characterization and analysis of a late Silurian shallow marine fossil assemblage from southern Ontario, CanadaEurypterids were giant chelicerate arthropods that have been extinct since the Permian Period. Eurypterids are rare as fossils, and many eurypterid fossils are likely skeletons shed during life (molts), which make it problematic when seeking to determine the types of environments in which they lived...Eurypterida2013-05
12 Uchida, Kimberly AkimiPost-translational regulation of the tumor suppressor PDCD4Expression of the tumor suppressor Programmed cell death 4 (PDCD4) is correlated with better survival outcomes in several types of cancer. When PDCD4 is coexpressed with protein arginine methyltransferase 5, however, this trend does not hold true, suggesting that PDCD4 methylation is involved in the...Tumor suppressor proteins - Regulation2013-12
13 Wilbur, LindseyThe effects of color on food preferenceColor has an influence on our perception of food and affects the food choices we make.

L- and N-type channels res...Calcium channels; Synaptic vesicles; Caenorhabditis elegans2013-05
19 Lee, ZacharyUsing Drosophila to investigate p53 life-or-death decisionsThe p53 tumor suppressor is a central regulator of cellular responses to DNA damage. When DNA damage cannot be repaired most cells undergo p53-dependent cell death. Thisp55-mediated apoptosis is important to eliminate cells with damaged genomes and provides an important block to the development of c...Biology2013-05
20 Lei, Jeffrey KaChonIncreased gluti expression in mouse cardiomyocytes preserves mitochondrial function but is insufficient to attenuate pressure overload-induced contractile dysfunctionLifelong over-expression of GLUT1 transporter in the heart has been shown to preserve contractile function after aortic constriction. However it is unclear whether this protective effect is due to GLUT1 overexpression itself or due to reprogramming of heart metabolism as a result of long-term increa...Bioengineering2013-04
