Belly Experiences: An Autoethnographic Study of Women Sharing the Belly
(Creighton University, 2010-11-23)
Women are connected to each other. More than a sole emotional connection; women interpersonally relate to one another through an important physical attribute, their bellies. This project examines the physical belly experiences ...
Effects of Ifenprodil on the Gating or NR1/2B NMDA Receptors
(Creighton University, 2010-07-28)
The extracellular amino terminal domain (ATD) of the NR2 subunits differentially controls NMDA receptor activity. Ifenprodil binds to the ATD of NR1/NR2B receptors inhibiting the receptors. To delineate the effects of ...
Structures Involved in the Oligomerization of Prestin
(Creighton University, 2010-12-06)
Hearing is an essential part of daily life for most people, yet little is known its molecular constituents. Cochlear amplification is the mechanism by which the hearing process is tuned and boosted in the inner ear. Somatic ...
Molecular and Pharmacological Characterization of the Rat RAMP2B Splice Variant
(Creighton University, 2010-08)
Receptor activity-modifying protein 2 (RAMP2) forms a hetero-oligomer with the calcitonin receptor-like receptor (CL) homo-oligomer to produce the adrenomedullin receptor 1 (AM1). RAMP2 has also been shown to associate ...
The Role of MicroRNAs in Craniofacial Development
(Creighton University, 2010-01-20)
Cleft palate and orofacial clefts are common congenital anomalies whose etiology results from deficient fusion of the bilateral processes of the first pharyngeal arch and/or the frontonasal process. Craniofacial clefting ...
The Structure-Function Relationship of Prestin: from an Evolutionary Perspective
(Creighton University, 2010-10-14)
Prestin is the motor protein of cochlear outer hair cells. It belongs to a distinct anion transporter family called solute carrier protein 26A, or SLC26A. Members of this family serve two fundamentally distinct functions. ...
(Creighton University, 2010-05-03)
Despite a fractured family, cheating friends, and the loss of love, a young Olympic hopeful learns that in life, trust and forgiveness is more important than compromising his ideals to succeed in sports.
The Effects of Melatonin on the Teratogenic Effects of Homocysteine
(Creighton University, 2010-03-14)
While folic acid deficiency has long been connected with adverse outcomes of pregnancy, evidence indicates homocysteine is the teratogenic agent in folic acid deficiency and maternal hyperhomocysteinemia has been shown to ...
Political Factors Predicting Renewable Energy Research and Development Levels: Mixed Results in Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development Countries from 1990-2000.
(Creighton University, 2010-08-13)
The goal of this paper is to determine why some Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries allocate more public expenditure to research and development of renewable energy than others. This is ...
The Misexpression of Sonic Hedgehog Leads to Digit Duplication
(Creighton University, 2010-01)
The limb buds of the early embryo are formed at the lateral flank by an outgrowth of cells from a layer of embryonic tissue called the lateral plate mesoderm. Shortly after this initial outgrowth, cells from the lateral ...
