Data from carcasses of 210 cattle (119 bulls and 91 steers) from 4 breed types, serially slaughtered from = 200-008kg kg liveweight were used to test the hypothesis of similar gender dimorphism among breeds in relation to carcass bone growth and distribution. Relative to total bone weight, breed...
Heterogeneity of surfaces is often included in mathematical treatments of colloid transport and deposition as an afterthought, if at all. Most previous models of colloid transport and deposition have employed idealizations and simplifications such as assuming smooth collector surfaces with...
Graphene has created much excitement in the scientific community since 2004, when Novoselov and Geim developed a method to exfoliate atomic layers from graphite, earning them the 2010 Nobel prize. The great interest in graphene stems from its outstanding material properties such as atomic...
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...
Interactions between Amyloid Precursor Protein and Prion Protein Impact Cell Adhesion and Apoptosis in the Developing ZebrafishDownload
We report here that knockdown of either amyloid precursor protein (APP) or prion protein (PrP) in the zebrafish produces an overt dose-dependent phenotype characterized by systemic morphological defects and CNS cell death. We report findings that the zebrafish PrP-1 gene genetically interacts...
Interactions Between Host Trees, Bacteria, and Fungi: Impacts on Mountain Pine Beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) ReproductionDownload
Warming winter trends due to climate change have allowed for a range expansion of the mountain pine beetle, and the beetle now threatens Canada’s economically and ecologically important jack pine forests. The beetle’s success in jack pine trees will depend upon successful colonization of the...
In this thesis, measurement and analysis of colloidal forces between an atomic force microscope (AFM) probe and a topographically patterned substrate are reported. The energy between the patterned substrate and a smooth flat plate was characterized mathematically using Surface Element Integration...
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...
