51 Zhu, JudyAnalysis of the pH-dependent equilibrium relationship between the guanine oxidation products 5-guanidinohydantoin and iminoallantoinOxidation of 2'-deoxyguanosine (dG) results in the major two-electron product 8-oxo-7,8-dihydro-2'-deoxyguanosine (dOG) that can undergo further oxidation to other products. One such product is 5-guanidinohydantoin (dGh) that is highly mutagenic and has been found in vivo. The ring architecture of d...Oxidation; guanine oxidation products; 5-guanidinohydantoin; Iminoallantoin; Equilibrium relationship2015-05

63 Brandt, Ellissa KathrynAssessment of bilateral muscle function symmetry in female alpine skiersA recent theory for the high occurrence of ACL injuries in female athletes is the presence of asymmetric leg muscle function. Unfortunately, information relative to the bilateral muscle function for the legs of female alpine skiers is lacking. Therefore the primary aim of this project is to examine ...Anterior Cruciate Ligament - injuries; Skiers, Female; Single leg counter movement jump - Research; Single leg time to stabilization - Research2012-05
64 Renz, AndyAssessment of exercise-stimulated tissue oxygenation in calf muscle with functional MRIPeripheral artery disease (PAD) affects millions of patients in the USA, and effective diagnosis and management of PAD is a major clinical goal. One promising avenue of research towards the goal is through functional MRI, which provides non-invasive measurement of tissue oxygenation.
