The significance of mirna pathway in peripheral nerve regeneration following sciatic nerve injury.
(East Carolina University, 2012)
microRNAs (miRNAs) are small (21-23 nucleotides) single-stranded RNAs that play important roles in post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression. The binding of miRNA to its specific target mRNAs at 3' UTR causes ...
Influence of carbon nanomaterial exposure on pro-constrictor mechanisms during pregnancy
(East Carolina University, 2013)
Engineered carbon based nanoparticles (CNP) such as fullerenes and multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) are increasingly used in industries and in nanomedicine as a platform for drug delivery. Following environmental/o ...
