Analyzing interactions between the GV1 Cell Line, Juvenile Hormone, and Juvenile Hormone Binding Protein
Insect juvenile hormone (JH) and its hemolymph transport protein, juvenile hormone binding protein (JHBP) play key roles in the development of many insects. However, the exact mechanism via which JH and JHBP regulates ...
Inhibition of the Escherichia coli replication cycle by a mutant RecA protein
Abstract: A conserved [K/R]x[K/R] motif is found at the subunit-subunit interface in bacterial RecA protein filaments. In the Escherichia coli RecA protein, this motif is made up of residues K248 and K250. Both of these ...
The effects of 1,25 D3 on the mouse osteopontin promoter
Vitamin D (1,25 D3) is an important transcriptional regulator of many genes including our gene of interest, osteopontin. Osteopontin is a known regulator of bone calcification and mineralization and is involved in signaling ...
E. coli contaminated drinking water in rural Uganda: Using results to make an impact
In January 2006, I worked with Community Based Integrated Nutrition (COBIN) to perform water quality testing and design & distribute health questionnaires to 40 households in the Lyantonde and Kiruhura districts of rural ...
Attempts to analyze the RNA-binding specificity of the C. elegans RNP-8 protein
Cytoplasmic polyadenylation is a key mechanism of gene regulation in all eukaryotes. The C. elegans GLD-2 protein provides the catalytic activity for a cytoplasmic poly(A) polymerase, but GLD-2 must partner with another ...
Steam distilled extract of ginger is a potent mediator of apoptosis in endometrial cancer cells via the modulation of the p53 and BcI-2 pathways
Development for new therapeutic and preventative agents in the treatment of gynecological cancers is in constant need. In the cunent study, we demonstrate that the steam distilled extracts of ginger are potent mediators ...
