    • Biological and functional consequences of polymorphisms in the XPD gene 

      Kevin James Wolfe (2006-10-23)
      Epidemiological studies have documented many associations between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the nucleotide excision repair gene XPD (ERCC2) and cancer risk. Little is known, however, about the underlying ...
    • Biological and Functional Consequences of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms of the O6-Methylguanine-DNA-Methyltransferase Gene 

      Cross, Courtney 1981-
      Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in DNA repair genes could alter the transcriptional levels, structure and function of DNA repair proteins and alter DNA repair proficiency. Consequently, these SNPs could significantly ...
    • Biological response to 8-oxoguanine base released during DNA base excision repair 

      David Noe Saenz (2010-01-05)
      Aging and age-associated diseases have been associated with altered cellular signaling, chromatin perturbation, oxidative stress, and DNA damage, especially at the telomere. Despite having evolved a sophisticated surveillance ...
    • Biological studies of GPI-anchoring in Trypanosoma cruzi 

      Michele Anne Zacks (2007-04-24)
      Trypanosoma cruzi, a protozoan parasite transmitted to humans via triatomine\r\ninsects, causes chronic chagasic cardiomyopathy (CCM) in ~30% of infected individuals.\r\nThis dissertation sought to characterize T. cruzi’s ...
    • Biomedicalizing Risk: Technologies of HIV Prevention and the Moral Imperatives of Biological Citizenship
