79 Cytoplasmic mRNA Decay in Arabidopsis: Roles of mRNA Decapping and Sov/ATDIS3L2The regulation of mRNA levels is achieved by balancing two opposing and dynamic processes: transcription and degradation. While our understanding of transcription to regulate mRNA levels has expanded, our understanding of RNA degradation is still limited. The relative contributions of known mRNA dec...Genetics; Biology; Plant sciences; Ribonucleic acid--RNA2018
80 Interpersonal Correlates of Dispositional Mindfulness and NonattachmentThe study of dispositional mindfulness has generally focused on intrapersonal processes to understand how mindfulness promotes health and well-being.

85 Mechanisms of Axonal Degeneration and Repair in a Preclinical Viral Model of Multiple SclerosisIntracranial inoculation of susceptible mice with the JHM strain of mouse hepatitis virus (JHMV) results in acute and chronic encephalomyelitis and demyelinating disease; thus, it has been used as a model of multiple sclerosis (MS). No cure currently exists for patients with MS. Recently, it has bee...Biomedical engineering; Neurosciences; Immunology2018
86 Interventions for Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome in High School AthletesResearch has highlighted medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS) as a very common overuse injury for runners of all levels as well as military personnel. Studies have demonstrated that conservative treatment such as strengthening and taping or bracing techniques help to decrease the pain associated wit...Physical therapy2018
87 Galaxy Color-Luminosity-Halo Mass Relation from Galaxy ClusteringUnderstanding how galaxies form and evolve is one of the most pressing questions in modern astronomy. The distribution of galaxies in the color-magnitude diagram (CMD) encodes key information on the physical processes in galaxy formation and evolution. A better understanding of the CMD would rely on...Astrophysics2018
88 Logarithmic Kodaira Dimension and Zeros of Holomorphic Log-One-FormsWe prove that the zero-locus of any global holomorphic log-one-form on a projective log-smooth pair of log-general type must be non-empty. This result is a natural generalization of the work of M. Popa and C. Schnell in 2015, which states that, the zero-locus of any global holomorphic one-form on a ...Mathematics2018
89 Magnetostriction and Ordering in Fe-16.4 AT.% Al Single CrystalsFe-Al alloys are of interest as high strength, ductile and low cost magnetostrictive alloys. This work examines how the nature of short range ordering and possible presence of B2 and DO3 ordered domains change with thermal history in Fe-16.4 at.% Al single crystal and how this influences magnetostri...Physics; Engineering; Materials science2018
90 Validity Testing of the Functional Movement Screen in Adolescent AthletesAssessment of functional movements in athletes can help to assess athletes' risk of injury. The purpose of this study was to examine the use of the Functional Movement Screen™ (FMS) assessment tool as a predictor of injury in secondary school athletes. It was hypothesized that due to differences i...Physical therapy; Biomechanics2018
91 A Framework for Evaluating the Potential of Renewable Power Generation Systems under Techno-Economic UncertaintiesRenewable energy systems are becoming popular choices for power generation.
