101 Richards, JacksonChasing channels: Progress in calcium channel localization in the C. Elegans synapseCalcium channels play a crucial role in neurotransmission by facilitating the flow of calcium ions necessary for synaptic vesicle fusion and neurotransmitter release. Different types of calcium channels participate in this process in the neurons of the nematode C. elegans. L- and N-type channels res...Calcium channels; Synaptic vesicles; Caenorhabditis elegans2013-05
102 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
103 Donovan, MorganShower stillsEver since some of its earliest discovered forms, such as the painting of figures on cave walls, the creation of art has sought to understand the human condition.

109 Nicolo, TeraCharacterization of mitochondria-modified electrodesIn order to develop an herbicide sensor, yeast, potato, and bovine heart mitochondria were isolated and immobilized onto Toray paper electrodes. Cyclic voltammetry showed two redox peaks at 186 ± 14 mV vs. SCE and -357 ± 24 mV vs. SCE with an E1/2 of -128 mV. Scan rate studies suggested the proces...Electrodes; Herbicides - Detection2013-05
110 Burga, Carlos AlbertoBinary superlattices of semiconductor nanocrystals : a path towards possible high-temperature superconductivityThis thesis provides a platform to experimentally test Dr. Daniel Mattis' theoretical work on the possible superconductive behavior of nanostructured intrinsic semiconductors1-2. The theoretical work hinged on the nano-scale architecture of semiconductors. Therefore, using various types of semicondu...Semiconductor nanocrystals; Superconductivity; Superlattices as materials2013-05
111 Mclntire, Jake AlexTransformed into omnipresenceDuring my time at the University of Utah I have developed a body of work revolving around the dichotomy and coexistence of absence and presence. My fundamental inspiration spurs from the death of my Mother and a lost connection to religion. I understand absence and presence as reciprocal fluid state...Art/Art History2013-05
112 Smithee, KatrinaSeeing into A doll's house through windows of feminism and mounting an epic production thereof : a dramaturgical production fileThe development and performance of a theatrical work is a complex process which involves myriad decisions and many participants. One of the most essential contributors is the Dramaturg, the individual responsible for guiding the production and ensuring that the final product is cohesive and true to ...Ibsen, Henrik, 1828-1906.

113 Millar, ThomasCenter lines, turn lanes and bicycle infrastructure : bikeways in the United States and Salt Lake City's 1700 South corridorContinuous and well-designed bicycle infrastructure plays an essential role in encouraging people to see and use the bicycle as a legitimate form of transportation and not only for recreation. In Salt Lake City, a common roadway striping design end bicycle lanes prematurely, requiring bicyclists to ...Bicycle lanes - Utah - Salt Lake City; Bicycle lanes - United States2013-05
114 Shackelford, DavidGraduating from the Electoral College : a critique on the electoral system of AmericaOur country is founded on democracy and the will of the people, but in the 2000 election the majority of citizens in the United States voted for the losing candidate. This result, of course, only is possible through the system called the Electoral College. This paper traces the history of the Electo...Electoral college; Presidents - United States - Election2013-05
115 Sullivan, Steven M.A trace formula for G2An n-dimensional matrix representation of a group G on a vector space V is a homomorphism from G to GL(V). For our purposes, we consider an irreducible representation to be a representation which cannot be decomposed into the direct sum of smaller-dimensional representations. Let H be a subgroup of ...Trace formulas2013-05
116 Thomas, NikitaCellular ultrastructure of C. elegans nervous systemDetermining the ultrastructural organization of the nervous system is a key step in understanding how complex behavior is generated. For a nervous system to function, it must be wired accurately.
