Effect of fluid shear stress on the growth and metabolism of human aortic smooth muscle cells
Upon disruption of the integrity of the endothelial monolayer, smooth muscle cells (SMC) may be directly exposed to blood flow and their behavior may be modulated by the local hemodynamic environment. Furthermore, modeling ...
Patterns of vegetation in fire-prone habitats, southeastern Texas, United States
Patterns of vegetation in fire-prone habitats were analyzed by ordination. The results showed that vegetation was highly related to soil texture, but was not obviously related to fire history. I concluded that either fire ...
Competition between the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta, and the acanthocephalan, Moniliformis dubius, in the laboratory rat
Since the tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta, and the acanthocephalan, Moniliformis dubius, are thought to obtain all their nutrients by absorption through the body surface, are known to inhabit the same general part of the ...

A density sensing mechanism in the eukaryote Dictyostelium discoideum
I am interested in understanding a mechanism by which multicellular organisms sense number of cells of the same type. The model selected is the conditioned medium factor secreted by Dictyostelium discoideum. In submerged ...
Identification and characterization ofbemused, a Drosophila gene involved in neuronal excitability, gametogenesis and embryonic development
During a screen for novel genes involved in the process of neurotransmission, a gene, bemused, was identified as the result of a transposon insertion at 85D on the third chromosome. Mutation of bem produces flies that are ...
Cloning and sequencing of inebriated, a gene encoding a neurotransmitter transporter in Drosophila melanogaster
Behavioral and electrophysiological studies on mutants defective in the Drosophila inebriated (ine) gene demonstrated increased excitability of the motor neuron. In this thesis is described the cloning and sequence analysis ...
Studies on the life history and development of certain Acanthocephala of the order Archiacanthocephala (Meyer, 1931)
The Acanthocephala constitute a comparatively small group of parasitic worms which have been very much neglected from the taxonomic and life history standpoints. The proper location of the Acanthocephala among the invertebrates ...
