    The formation of pseudouridine and 5-methyluridine (m5U) in the T-arm of transfer RNAs (tRNAs) is near-universally conserved. These two modifications are formed in Escherichia coli by the pseudouridine synthase TruB and ...
  • Dutta, Anindita; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Physics and AstronomyArts and ScienceDepartment of Physics and Astronomy, 2016)
    Quantum theory of gravity deals with the physics of the gravitational field at Planck length scale (10^(−35) m). Even though it is experimentally hard to reach the Planck length scale, one can look for evidence of quantum ...

    Endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) are persistent in wastewater effluent and discharged into receiving waters. Some EDCs can interact with the thyroid system in vertebrates. The present study investigated the effects ...
  • Mashwood, Abdullah Al; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Physics and AstronomyArts and ScienceDepartment of Physics and Astronomy, 2016)
    This thesis presents line-shape studies of carbon dioxide and acetylene, found as trace constituents in planetary atmospheres. The v1+v3 band of acetylene broadened by CO2 was recorded using a tunable diode laser spectrometer ...
  • Hosseini, Seyed Hossein; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Chemistry and BiochemistryArts and ScienceDepartment of Chemistry and Biochemistry, 2016)
    The spatio-temporal organization of one RNA polymerase (RNAP) along a DNA strand is explored by studying a kinetic stochastic model for transcription process, the first step in gene expression. An explicit expression for ...
  • Kesler, Mitchell T.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of NeuroscienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2016)
    Cortico-hippocampal communication is critical for cognitive processes including behavioural flexibility, and memory formation, consolidation, and retrieval. Nucleus reuniens of the thalamus has been implicated in memory ...
  • Dube, Sutherland Theresa Ann; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of NeuroscienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2016)
    The longitudinal (or septotemporal) axis of the rodent hippocampus is generally described as being functionally segregated. However, the division between septal and temporal areas is not clearly delineated, and current ...
