  • Assessing gene expression by real-time polymerase chain reaction 

    Dang, Ngoc; Tran, Paul; Colton, Ben; Torry, Ronald J. (2007-05-31)
    End-point Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is a highly sensitive technique that can be used to assess gene expression in limited tissue/cell samples. However, accurately quantifying gene expression with this method is tedious ...
  • "Characterizing reactivity of benzyl esters in sodium dodecyl sulfate micelles" 

    Odorzynski, Melissa; Hoang, Tram B.; Bulochnik, Alex; Dang, Ngoc; Mirafzal, Gholam A.; Almoazen, Hassan (2006-05-04)
    Purpose: To study the effect of changing structure of benzyl esters on its reactivity in sodium dodecyl sulfate micelles. Methods: Ester molecules with benzyl moiety were either purchased or synthesized. Alkyl groups of ...
  • 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 ...
