To estimate rates of Al accumulation within the symplasm, all apoplastic pools of Al need to be eliminated or accounted for. We have developed a revised kinetic protocol that allows us to estimate the contribution of mucilage-bound Al to total, nonexchangeable Al, and to eliminate the mucilage as...
Caenorhabditis elegans microtubule-severing complex MEI-1/MEI-2 katanin interacts differently with two superficially redundant beta-tubulin isotypesDownload
The microtubule-severing protein complex katanin is required for a variety of important microtubule-base morphological changes in both animals and plants. Caenorhabditis elegans katanin is encoded by the mei-1 and mei-2 genes and is required for oocyte meiotic spindle formation and must be...
After hormonal ablation, 90% of the secretory epithelial cells of the prostate undergo apoptosis, and the remaining cells are reorganized as the tissue is remodeled. Using differential display RT-PCR of total RNA extracted from the rat ventral prostate before and 4 days after castration, we have...
From Scattering Dots to Cognitive Maps: Contributions of visual features in localization and cognitive mappingDownload
Localizing oneself and other objects in an environment is important in everyday life. Various visual features available in our surroundings can serve as spatial cues to support accurate localization. Encoding individual locations can be achieved by establishing a vector between a target location...
Indigenous Women's Appropriation and Redeployment of Human Rights: A Comparative Study of the Native Women's Association of Canada and K'inal Antsetik (Mexico)Download
Recent studies have examined the roles and politics of human rights in relation to Indigenous peoples. An analysis of the negotiation of rights discourse by Indigenous women in a comparative framework is however lacking in critical scholarship. This study examines how Indigenous women in Canada...
Localization of Global Discourse and the Breakdown of the Washington Consensus (WC): A Case Study of Korean Higher Education Reform (1993-2012)Download
In my dissertation paper, I sought the political implications of neo-liberal education reform with the case of recent Korean higher education reforms. I first explored the macro-causal relationship of neo-liberal higher education reform in transnational social relations, and then the political...
Background: The MS4A gene family in humans includes CD20 (MS4A1), FcRb (MS4A2), Htm4 (MS4A3), and at least 13 other syntenic genes encoding membrane proteins, most having characteristic tetraspanning topology. Expression of MS4A genes is variable in tissues throughout the body; however, several...
In recent years, Underwater Sensor Networks (UWSNs) have attracted attention for their potential use in many applications. To name a few, UWSNs have been considered in studying marine life, oceanographic data collection, monitoring underwater oil pipelines, and a variety of military and homeland...
Structural and Biochemical Changes in Loblolly Pine (Pinus taeda L.) Seeds During Germination and Early-Seedling Growth. I. Storage Protein ReservesDownload
Abstract: Quantitative and qualitative changes in the storage proteins of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) seeds were followed during germination and early-seedling growth and were correlated with light-microscopic observations. In both the megagametophyte and the embryo, the cells of tissues from...
The procambium specification gene Oshox1 promotes polar auxin transport capacity and reduces its sensitivity toward inhibitionDownload
The auxin-inducible homeobox gene Oshox1 of rice (Oryza sativa) is a positive regulator of procambial cell fate commitment, and its overexpression reduces the sensitivity of polar auxin transport (PAT) to the PAT inhibitor 1-N-naphthylphthalamic acid (NPA). Here, we show that wild-type rice...
