Developing a Panel of Microsatellite Markers for Common Moorhen (Gallinula chloropus) as a Research Tool for Population Studies
(East Carolina University, 2013)
The common moorhen (Gallinula chloropus) sometimes exhibits brood parasitism - a parent manipulating a conspecific host to raise its offspring, relieving the parent of the encumbrance of parental investment. It has been ...
Effect of MicroRNA-34c on Regenerative Axon Growth in Dorsal Root Ganglion Neurons of the Peripheral Nervous System
(East Carolina University, 2011)
The peripheral nervous system is unique in its ability to regenerate axons after injury. Our lab previously assessed the miRNA expression levels of the regenerating sciatic nerve which indicated miR-34c up-regulation. ...
Widespread impact of horizontal gene transfer on plant colonization of land
In complex multicellular eukaryotes such as animals and plants, horizontal gene transfer is commonly considered rare with very limited evolutionary significance. Here we show that horizontal gene transfer is a dynamic ...
Comprehensive analysis of TCP transcription factors and their expression during cotton () fiber early development
TCP proteins are plant-specific transcription factors implicated to perform a variety of physiological functions during plant growth and development. In the current study, we performed for the first time the comprehensive ...
Investigating Novel Chromosome 2 Genetic Variants Associated with Recurrent Stroke
(East Carolina University, 2019-07-18)
As the fifth leading cause of death and leading cause of long-term disability, stroke affects 795,000 individuals annually in the United States alone. Recurrent stroke, which is far more deadly and disabling, accounts for ...
