Synoptic Comparison of Salt Marsh Spatial Structure Using Hyperspectral Imagery at NOAA National Estuarine Research Reserves.
(Creighton University, 2010-12-10)
As a dynamic system, salt marshes are highly productive habitats. Exceedingly dependent on specific tolerances to tidal regimes, temperature, elevation, and salinity, the plant composition and structure of a salt marsh are ...
Novel Smart Polymer Based In Situ Gels
(Creighton University, 2010-12-14)
The objectives of this investigation were to investigate the effect of interaction of protein and polymers with varying end groups on the overall release profile of model proteins (Lysozyme, Bromelain and Bovine Serum ...
A Climatology of Cold Season Nonconvective Wind Events Across the North Central Plains
(Creighton University, 2010-12-17)
The onset and demise of non-convective high wind events (NCWEs) remains a challenge for the operational forecasting community. In an attempt to gain a better understanding of such events, a period of record climatology of ...
Political Instability: Governance, Perceptions of Well-Being and Mobilization
(Creighton University, 2010-04-05)
The scholarly literature discussing political stability is vast and crosses multiple academic disciplines and three centuries. Yet, scholars have been unable to identify a coherent and empirically valid theory explaining ...
The Influence of the “Final Cause Doctrine” on Anatomists of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries Concerning Selected Anatomical Structures of the Head and Neck.
(Creighton University, 2010-12-15)
The “Doctrine of Final Cause” taken from Aristotle’s (384 B.C.-322 B.C.) “causes”, and modified by Claudius (Aelius) Galen (Galen of Pergamon) (129 A.D.- 216 A.D.) stated that for an anatomical part to exist it must have ...
The Role of CDC25A in Ultraviolet-induced Nonmelanoma Skin Tumorigenesis
(Creighton University, 2010-11-28)
Cell division cycle 25A (CDC25A) is a dual-specificity phosphatase that removes inhibitory phosphate groups from cyclin-dependent kinases, allowing cell cycle progression. Activation of cell cycle checkpoints following ...
Influence of Sodium Channel Activation on NMDA Receptor-Mediated Structural Plasticity.
(Creighton University, 2010-08-11)
Neuronal activity regulates morphology and connectivity of neurons during development. Many aspects of activity-dependent neuronal development such as dendritic arborization, spinogenesis and synaptogenesis are mediated ...
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.
