The research presented in this work explores the application of microfluidics to the field of proteomics through the design of a multi-channel microfluidic platform and the investigation of individual components of the system. The design of this microfluidic device allows the integration of...
Proteins, which participate in virtually every process within cells, implement many of their functions through interactions with various ligands. Although a substantial effort in characterization and prediction of protein-ligand interactions was observed in the past two decades, these subjects...
Simultaneous measurement of protein and energy metabolism and application to determine lysine requirements in sowsDownload
Simultaneous measurements of energy and protein metabolism can provide valuable information about their interactions. Dietary lysine is limiting in typical feedstuffs fed to swine and, therefore, limits protein synthesis. Current recommendations for dietary amino acid and energy intakes may not...
An examination of linking and blocking procedures for use in deflection cantilever array-based protein detectionDownload
In this project common linking and blocking procedures were examined for use in multiplexed deflection cantilever array-based detection of proteins. A human interferon gamma (INF-γ) enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kit was used to evaluate the effectiveness of the linking and blocking...
Structure and dynamics of biomolecules: probing muscle regulation, prion protein unfolding, and drug insertion into DNA by nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopyDownload
Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is a powerful approach to study the structure and dynamics of macromolecules in a close-to-native solution environment. In the present thesis I present my investigation of protein and nucleic acid structure and dynamics in a wide variety of biological...
Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) are an emerging renewable and sustainable nanomaterial which has received increasing attention. They are abundant, nontoxic, biodegradable and chemically inert. CNCs have unique characteristics not met by traditional cellulose-derived materials, leading...

The effects of broiler breeder dietary energy and protein during rearing and dietary energy level of lay diets on egg composition, offspring performance and carcass yield were evaluated. Pullets were fed a diet containing high ME (2,736 kcal/kg; HEREAR), or low ME (2,528 kcal/kg; LEREAR) combined...
