PDZ protein-protein interaction domains recognize short linear motif (SLiM) sequences typically at the extreme C-terminus of a target protein. These domains often act as scaffolds, connecting target proteins to additional interaction and catalytic...
The new APM South Equatorial Strip Catalog $({-}17\sp\circ.5<\delta<2\sp\circ.5)$ is used to select a sample of early-type galaxies in three directions: (1) 15h10-16h10; (2) 20h30-21h50; (3) 00h10-01h30. The distances and peculiar motions of...
Air -- Pollution. ; Indoor air pollution. ; Air -- Pollution -- Measurement.
The polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) content of ambient air at several locations is described. The indoor sites examined included those having woodstoves, fireplaces, and kerosene heaters as supplements to oil heat, as well as one test home...
PDZ domains are protein:protein interaction domains that serve as molecular scaffolds, especially in the case of specialized cellular environments like polarized airway epithelial cells of the human lung. Historically the domains have been thought...
Polynomials. Finite fields (Algebra). Algebraic functions. Number theory.
The ring of univariate polynomials over a finite field shares many foundational arithmetic properties with the ring of rational integers. This similarity makes it possible for many problems in elementary number theory to be translated 'through the...
Electric generators -- Windings. Electric inductors -- Design and construction -- Mathematical models. Electric current converters -- Design and construction -- Mathematical models. Energy dissipation -- Mathematical models.
Magnetic components for high-frequency power conversion applications can have significant losses that compromise the performance of the converter. In particular, winding losses can be large due to high-frequency effects that are difficult to model...
Cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2E1 is considered the sole CYP responsible for APAP bioactivation leading to hepatotoxicity. CYP2E1 is also considered the alcohol-inducible CYP and therefore, the sole CYP responsible for alcohol-mediated increases in APAP...
The thermophilic anaerobic bacterium Clostridium thermocellum has attracted researchers attention because of its potential industrial application and high cellulose hydrolysis rates. This study focuses on the physiological fundamentals of C....
Problem Statement Patient safety in the modern hospital is supported by multiple human and technological systems, and this type of high-risk/high-complexity domain requires multiple layers of protection against harm. This fault-tolerant approach is...
We have created an E. coli based platform for protein modification by coupling an engineered glycosylation pathway with a subsequent chemoenzymatic labeling strategy in which the glycans are oxidized to provide a bioorthogonal aldehyde group that...
A polynomial is a product of distinct cyclotomic polynomials if and only if it is a divisor over [Special characters omitted.] [x ] of xn - 1 for some positive integer n. In this thesis, we will examine two natural questions concerning the divisors...
We expect wireless body-area networks of pervasive wearable devices will enable in situ health monitoring, personal assistance, entertainment personalization, and home automation. As these devices become ubiquitous, we also expect them to...
In this thesis, we consider several problems relating to cyclic subgroups of the group [mathematical equation]. Each element of [mathematical equation] has a unique representative in one of the two intervals [mathematical equation] and...

The respiratory control network (RC) is made up nuclei dispersed throughout the pons and medulla oblongata and receives information from various sources that alter respiratory output. My studies have been focussed on one of these nuclei that play a...
