    The torpedo mechanism is a type of eukaryotic transcription termination completed by RNAPII and consists of a chase-down of RNAPII by the exonuclease Xrn2 on the 3' flanking region of the RNA transcript. A biochemical ...
  • Ren, Jiajia; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Management (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Management.Management, 2015)
    Historically, stock market crashes have caused trillions of dollars in losses and have dramatically destroyed investors’ confidence in the stock market. Independent empirical studies have converged to prove the synchronization ...
  • Banerjee, Abhijit; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Management (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Management.Management, 2016)
    Numerous studies in the past have shown how the store image gets created for a retail store and the various factors that influence the purchase intentions of the customers in the retail environment. Different aspects of a ...
  • Gill, Isabel; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Education (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Education, 2004Education, 2004)
    Textbooks newly approved for use in secondary schools in Alberta reflect the belief that not only does literature have the power to change and shape our thinking, but also that the non-White voices of our culture need to ...
  • West, Beverly L.; University of Lethbridge. School of Health Sciences (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, School of Health Sciences, 2008Health Sciences, 2008)
    Problem gambling is best understood from a biopsychosocial perspective, whereby multifaceted biological, psychological, and socio-environmental factors interact in ways that may lead to individual risk. Reinforcement ...
  • Cuthbert, Ronald Hugh; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 1995Arts and ScienceDepartment of Geography, 1995)
    This study is based on the premise that it is important to understand how niche marketers manage the process of farm level adaptive change. A review of the relevent literature revealed the limitations of research on the ...
  • MacDonald, Ryan J.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of GeographyArts and ScienceDepartment of Geography, 2013)
    This thesis quantified processes controlling stream temperature using a field study conducted in headwater catchments on the eastern slopes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, Alberta. Hydrometeorological data from May-September ...
  • Jensen, Patricia Barbara; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Education (Lethbridge, AB : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Education, 1989Education, 1989)
    An integrated model of teacher burnout is presented as the backdrop to a personal history of one distressed teacher. Using a series of collaborative interviews, Sarah's experiences as a classroom teacher are explored as ...
  • Arelis, Cheryl L.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2006Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2006)
    Stress is thought to be antithetical to play. However, this thesis shows that mild stress (e.g., social deprivation) enhances rough-and-tumble play, as opposed to other social behaviors, in adolescent rats. Social deprivation ...
  • Nassar, Ali; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Physics and AstronomyArts and ScienceDepartment of Physics and Astronomy, 2013)
    Conformal invariance in two dimensions is a powerful symmetry. Two-dimensional quantum field theories which enjoy conformal invariance, i.e., conformal field theories (CFTs) are of great interest in both physics and ...
  • Faraji, Jamshid; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2008Arts and ScienceNeuroscience, 2008)
    Stress-related cognitive changes are still a matter of debate. In some particular neuropathological conditions such as focal ischemia, cognitive functions have been shown to be significantly impaired. These conditions, however, ...
  • Smith, Adam David; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Chemistry and Biochemistry, c2009Arts and ScienceDepartment of Chemistry and Biology, 2009)
