  • Modeling Alzheimer’s disease in mice by selectively lesioning the cholinergic basal forebrain 

    Arter, Natalie; Wrenn, Craige C. (2007-06-01)
    One pathological feature of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the degeneration of the cholinergic basal forebrain (CBF). The importance of this degeneration in AD is suggested by the observation that the degree of CBF degeneration ...

  • Hubble space telescope imaging of seyfert galaxies 

    Bennett, Wendy; Madland, Mark; Weinzirl, Timothy; Nelson, Charles H. (2007-06-01)
    Recent searches for massive black holes in galactic nuclei show that they are common if not ubiquitous. Furthermore, there are important relationships between black hole mass and properties characterizing the size and ...
  • Treating anaplastic thyroid carcinoma with an oncolytic adenovirus 

    Reichert-Eberhardt, Aliana; Reddi, Honey V.; Copland, John A.; Galanis, Evanthia; McIver, Bryan; Grebe, Stefan K.G.; Eberhardt, Norman L. (2007-06-01)
    Anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (ATC) is the most aggressive form of thyroid cancer. Standard therapy is rarely curative, and the tumors are resistant to radioiodine or chemotherapy. Oncolytic viruses may be used to treat ...
  • The Solubilization mechanism of benzyl esters in sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) micelles 

    Grill, Alex; Neuharth, Scott; Dang, Ngoc; Bulochnik, Alex; Hoang, Tram B.; Odorzynski, Melissa; Mirafzal, Gholam A.; Almoazen, Hassan (2007-06-01)
    Micelles are aggregates of surfactant molecules used to increase the solubility and bioavailability of poorly soluble pharmaceutical compounds. Past studies have suggested that a micelle is an oil droplet surrounded by a ...
  • The Effects of impoundment depth and isolation on fish species diversity and fish size 

    Bottcher, Jared; Summerville, Keith S. (2007-06-01)
    A problem for many fisheries managers is trying to maintain a diverse prey base while maximizing predator size. To test the effects of water depth and impoundment isolation on fish size and species composition, two rock-quarry ...
  • Living the Mission : How Drake Can Cultivate Morality in Students 

    Britton, Saundra; DeBruin, Kayla; Fiegen, Jane; Gilbert, Brad; Koppel, Nate; McClain, Dylan; Prakash, Shawn; Saunders, Alison; Schweitzer, Rebecca; Traficanti, Rachel; Twinem, Sarah (2007-06-04)
  • Solvent Effects on the Spectroscopy of Dyes 

    Barkley, Rachel M.; Hurley, Carly E.; Johnson, Ryan T.; Nkrumah-Agyeefi, Samuel; Wildgen, Sarah M. (2009-04-20)
    Linear solvation energy relationships (LSERs) were used to quantify the intermolecular interactions between solvents and two organic dyes - di-8-ANEPPS and RH-237. LSERs evaluate the sensitivity of a dye's wavelength of ...
  • Interactions of Miltefosine and Phospholipid DPPC at the Air/Water Interface 

    Wildgen, Sarah M. (2009-04-20)
    Several Langmuir monolayer studies have suggested that the drug Hexadecylphosphocholine (miltefosine) has a mode of action which is directly related to the cell membrane. Because the exact mode of action still unknown, ...
  • Isolation of Yeast Genes that Suppress the Chromosome Loss Defect of ysm's 22, 77, 83, and 84
