Processing of bistranded abasic DNA clusters in γ-irradiated human hematopoietic cells
(East Carolina University, 2004)
Clustered DNA damages—two or more lesions on opposing strands and within one or two helical turns—are formed in cells by ionizing radiation or radiomimetic antitumordrugs. They are hypothesized to be difficult to repair, ...
Evolution of the RNA polymerase II C-terminal domain
(East Carolina University, 2002-04-30)
In recent years a great deal of biochemical and genetic research has focused on the C-terminal domain (CTD) of the largest subunit (RPB1) of DNA-dependent RNA polymerase II. This strongly conserved domain of tandemly ...
Bisphenol A: vom Saal and Hughes Respond
(East Carolina University, 2006-01)
Convergent evolution of bright coloration and toxicity in frogs
(East Carolina University, 2003-10-28)
An Extensive New Literature Concerning Low-Dose Effects of Bisphenol A Shows the Need for a New Risk Assessment
(East Carolina University, 2005-08)
Bisphenol A (BPA) is the monomer used to manufacture polycarbonate plastic, the resin lining of cans, and other products, with global capacity in excess of 6.4 billion lb/year. Because the ester bonds in these BPA-based ...
The evolution of coloration and toxicity in the poison frog family (Dendrobatidae)
(East Carolina University, 2001-05-22)
The poison frogs (family Dendrobatidae) are terrestrial anuran amphibians displaying a wide range of coloration and toxicity. These frogs generally have been considered to be aposematic, but relatively little ...
Ecological effects of rising sea level on shorezone
(East Carolina University, 2009)
This study examines the ecological effects of sea-level rise on shorezone in the Neuse River estuary and western Pamlico Sound, NC. Shorezone is defined here in an ecohydrological context as the area of wetland that extends ...
Tactical reproductive parasitism via larval cannibalism in Peruvian poison frogs
(East Carolina University, 2009-04-23)
We report an unusual example of reproductive parasitism in amphibians. Dendrobates variabi- lis, an Amazonian poison frog, oviposits at the surface of the water in small pools in plants and deposits tadpoles within the ...
Catabolite repression control (Crc) gene and Pseudomonas virulence
The present invention relates to a method of screening for compounds that inhibit the virulence of Pseudomonas bacteria and comprises the steps of: providing a culture medium comprising Pseudomonas bacteria, administering ...
Gamma Protocadherin Expression in the Embryonic Chick Nervous System
(East Carolina University, 2007)
Protocadherin gamma (pcdh-gamma) family expression was examined in the embryonic chick central nervous system by in situ hybridization. Transcripts were visualized in discrete regions of fore-, mid-, and hindbrain at stages ...
