Investigation of triterpene biosynthesis in Arabidopsis thaliana
This thesis describes functional characterization of three oxidosqualene cyclase genes (At1g78955, At3g45130, and At4g15340 ) from the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana that encode enzymes with novel catalytic functions. ...
The catalytic growth of single walled carbon nanotubes
Single walled carbon nanotubes were synthesized using a variety of transition metal catalyst nanoparticles under a variety of reaction conditions. The degree of control for the growth procedure was qualitatively and ...

Multidomain Peptides: Sequence-Nanostructure Relationships and Biological Applications
Peptides are materials that, as a result of their polymeric nature, possess enormous versatility and customizability. Multidomain peptides are a class of peptides that selfassemble to form stable, cytocompatible hydro gels. ...
The Saccharomyces cerecisiae hsp70 escort protein Hep1 exhibits cross-reactivity with a non-cognate chaperone
Genetic studies have provided evidence that the hsp70 escort protein Hep1 is essential for maintaining the solubility of the mitochondrial chaperones Ssc1 and Ssq1 in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. However, little is known about ...
