  • Analysis of differential glycosylation patterns of human FSH 

    Chambers, Carrie Anne; Shuai, Bin; Bousfield, George R. (2010-03-25)
    Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) is a glycoprotein hormone with two subunits, α and β, and is required for gamete development. In a process known as glycosylation, oligosaccharide branches are added to specific residues ...
  • Biomimetic solar cells 

    Subbaiyan, Navaneetha K.; D’Souza, Francis (2010-03-25)
    Eco friendly energy resources are becoming important due to the predicted oil depletion and soared CO2 emission. Of available alternatives, solar energy finds special attention due to its vast availability and high power ...
  • Comparative binding studies with a tetraurea picket porphyrin receptor using 1H NMR and isothermal titration calorimetry 

    Aw, Hong Wai; Burns, Dennis H. (2010-03-25)
    The determination of anion binding constants using 1H NMR and Isothermal Titration Calorimetric (ITC) reveals the occurrence of several specific and unspecific binding steps. In general, ITC reports on all specific and ...
  • Ecological perspectives of Latino/Hispanic families in a rural school community 

    Grant, Natalie S.; Callis, Larry D.; Siemens, Douglas T.; Stout, Lance D.; Bennett, Jo (2010-03-25)
    Immigration waves from Mexico, Central and Latin America have changed demographic landscapes and in some communities, native Spanish speaking people are the majority. In schools across the U.S., growing numbers of students ...
  • A fully Bayesian approach for sample size determination 

    Safaie, Nasser (2010-03-25)
    The sample size determination has a significant role in the design and analysis of many engineering problems and data sampling projects. There are a number of sampling techniques that can be utilized to quantify the impact ...
  • A fuzzy multi-objective model for a green generation expansion problem 

    Nezami, Farnaz Ghazi; Meza, Jose L. Ceciliano; Yildirim, Mehmet Bayram; Masud, Abu S.M. (2010-03-25)
    In this paper a comprehensive fuzzy multi-objective model is presented for generation expansion planning problem considering uncertainty in objective functions and demand constraints. The purpose of the model is determining ...
  • Harvesting solar energy via artificial photosynthesis 

    Maligaspe, Eranda; D’Souza, Francis (2010-03-25)
    Photosynthesis, the process of converting light energy into chemical energy, involves two major steps, absorption and transportation of light energy of appropriate wavelength by the antenna light harvesting molecules to ...
  • The implications of gendering childhood obesity PSAs 

    O’Neal, Pamela K.; Ballard-Reisch, Deborah (2010-03-25)
    The percentage of overweight and obese children is at or above 30% in 30 U.S. states [1], including Kansas which ranks 22nd with 31% of its children rated as overweight or obese [1]. Nationally, 15.1 % of girls vs. 16.4% ...
  • Spreading pathogens via healthcare uniforms 

    Curl, JoAnna L.; Garrett, Lindsay M.; Nyberg, Sue M. (2010-03-25)
    It is relatively common to see healthcare employees in their uniforms (lab coats, scrubs, etc.) outside of the workplace in areas such as restaurants and grocery stores. Research has shown that microorganisms can be ...
