Von Willebrand Factor (VWF) is a multimeric adhesive glycoprotein that is exclusively expressed in endothelial cells (EC) and megakaryocytes. This procoagulant protein is involved in maintaining primary hemostasis and thrombus formation. However, there are pathological and physiological...
Masters thesis. Qualitatively and quantitatively documents the agonistic behaviour of captive male brown lemmings. Lemmings used in the experiments were originally from Point Barrow and maintained since 1962 as a colony at the Arctic Research Center in College, Alaska. Shipments to the University...
Commercial naphthenic acids and the organic fraction of oil sands process water downregulate pro-inflammatory gene expression and macrophage antimicrobial responses
Commercial naphthenic acids and the organic fraction of oil sands process water induce different effects on pro-inflammatory gene expression and macrophage phagocytosis in mice
The circulating anti-parasite antibody response against Giardia lamblia in symptomatic and asymptomatic Egyptian children with confirmed giardiasis was examined. Symptomatic patients were identified using the following criteria: presence of only G. lamblia cysts in the feces, and one or more of...
Doctoral thesis. Study of the red-backed vole on Mackenzie Delta sites from 1971 to 1973.
An individual’s body weight is tightly regulated by balancing food intake with energy expenditure. This is accomplished in part by secretion of the hormone leptin by adipocytes, an excess of which signals to reduce appetite and increase activity through action in the hypothalamic region of the...

Masters thesis. Study of muskrat population during period of declining water levels.
Endogenous melanocortin antagonist in fish: Structure, brain mapping and regulation by fasting of the goldfish agouti-related protein geneDownload
Agouti-related protein (AGRP) is a naturally occurring antagonist of melanocortin. In mammals, central AGRP expression is restricted to the arcuate nucleus in which it plays a key role in the control of energy balance by antagonizing melanocortin effects at melanocortin 4 receptors. In goldfish,...
Background Single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping assays normally give rise to certain percents of no-calls; the problem becomes severe when the target organisms, such as cattle, do not have a high resolution genomic sequence. Missing SNP genotypes, when related to target traits, would...
