Extraction of canola proteins and assessment of their applications: cruciferin for encapsulation of bioactives and napin as a chaperone-like moleculeDownload
Canola is a farm-gate crop in Canada. Canola meal after oil extraction is used mostly as animal feed with limited value-added applications. Canola proteins are known to have great potential for use in food and non-food applications due to their nutritional, biological and functional properties....
Investigating the roles of O-linked Protein Glycosylation and Type Two Secretion in the Pathogenesis of AcinetobacterDownload
The Acinetobacter baumannii, A. nosocomialis and A. pittii are Gram-negative opportunistic human pathogens that are of importance to the healthcare system particularily because of their resistance to antibiotics. The thesis below focuses on investigating two virulence attributes of Acinetobacter...
Myosin Assembly, Maintenance and Degradation in Muscle: Role of the Chaperone UNC-45 in Myosin Thick Filament DynamicsDownload
Myofibrillogenesis in striated muscle cells requires a precise ordered pathway to assemble different proteins into a linear array of sarcomeres. The sarcomere relies on interdigitated thick and thin filaments to ensure muscle contraction, as well as properly folded and catalytically active myosin...
Prions are infectious proteins. In their prion conformation, they catalyze the transformation of non-prion isomers into prions. Another characteristic common to currently identified prions is that they form amyloid aggregates. They occur in several mammals and multiple species of yeast, acting in...
