Drosophila Ctf4 is essential for genome stability and normal cell cycle progression
(East Carolina University, 2010)
Proper DNA replication and well-timed cell cycle progression are vital to the normal functioning of a cell. Precise coordination between these mechanisms' constituent proteins ensures their processivity while safeguarding ...
Characterization of Two Novel Mutants of DNA Polymerase Delta in Drosophila melanogaster
(East Carolina University, 2011)
DNA is the genetic material for all living organisms which is constantly being unpackaged, replicated and repackaged. The replication of this genetic material involves numerous different proteins; however, DNA polymerase ...
USE OF GENETIC TECHNIQUES TO IDENTIFY THE DIET OF COWNOSE RAYS, RHINOPTERA BONASUS, IN NORTH CAROLINA AND VIRGINIA : AN ANALYSIS OF SHELLFISH PREY ITEMS
(East Carolina University, 2013)
Cownose rays, Rhinoptera bonasus, are considered voracious predators on mollusks and have been implicated in the consumption of commercially important species of shellfish on the East Coast. Digestive tracts of the 32 ...
Drosophila Psf2 Has a Role In Chromosome Condensation
(East Carolina University, 2012)
The condensation state of chromosomes is a critical parameter in multiple processes within the cell. Failures in the maintenance of appropriate condensation states may lead to genomic instability, mis-expression of genes, ...
MHC class I variation among wild, domestic and insular populations of the zebra finch (Taeniopygia guttata)
(East Carolina University, 2014)
The zebra finch (Taeniopygia guttata) is a passerine bird native to Australia and the Lesser Sunda Islands, with domesticated populations derived from each of these localities. The Lesser Sundas and domesticated zebra ...
