203 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
204 Twombly, JessicaCollaborative methods of special education and general education teachersA growing number of students with disabilities are being served in general education classrooms.

208 Leonard, NicoleVitamin D deficiency in flight attendants and pilotsVitamin D is a curious molecule. While humans do get some vitamin D from their diet, most of it is synthesized in the body, so it does not fit the definition of a vitamin-a molecule that must come from the diet. Vitamin D synthesis is initiated by the UVB (290-320 nm) portion of ultraviolet radiatio...Vitamin D deficiency; Flight attendants -- Nutrition; Air pilots -- Nutrition; Ultraviolet radiation -- Physiological effect2015-04

213 Marler, TylerThe role of gangliar plexi in the treatment of atrial fibrillationIntroduction: Gangliar plexi (GP) are bundles of interconnected neurons found embedded in FPs (FPs) surrounding the atria of the heart. The function of these neurons is controversial but they may form a localized control system for the heart and play a role in the induction of atrial fibrillation (A...Atrial fibrillation Treatment; Gangliar plexi2012-05
214 Tuft, MarieQuantitative analysis of virus trafficking in a biological cellVirus replication is a complex process that is important to understand. If a virus is to successfully infect a host cell it must travel from the cell wall to the nucleus by hijacking that cell's existing transport system of microtubules. This motion occurs as two iterated steps: passive diffusion th...Viruses -- Reproduction -- Mathematical models; Virus trafficking2015-05

225 Prestgard-Duke, MichaelDynamin localization in Caenorhabditis ElegansDynamin is a 100-KDa GTPase that is essential for endocytosis. The classic model of endocytosis is a sequential mechanism: first, cell membrane is bent and internalized via the formation of a clathrin coat; next, dynamin facilitates GTP hydrolysis, resulting in membrane scission as the newly formed ...Caenorhabditis elegans; Guanosine triphosphatase; Endocytosis2014-05
