    Park, Stephen David Edward (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Genetics, 2002)
    A panel of 69 microsatellite loci was used to investigate the population genetic effects of selection at genes on linked, neutral markers. Loci were typed in African and European Bos taurus cattle and Bos indicus populations ...
  • Tubulin-targeting antiparasitic herbicides : new insights into putative ligand-binding pockets and computational design of molecular equivalents 

    Flood, Christopher T. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Biochemistry and Immunology, 2013)
    Neglected diseases are a group of tropical infections which are especially endemic in lowincome populations in developing regions of Africa, Asia, and the Americas. Collectively these diseases affect more more than a biUion ...
  • Tumour derived microRNA-21 reprograms macrophage responses 

    Case, Sarah (Trinity College Dublin. School of Biochemistry & Immunology. Discipline of Biochemistry, 2022)
    The role of the oncogenic yet anti-inflammatory microRNA-21 (miR-21) in the tumour microenvironment (TME) is not clearly defined, despite its upregulation in many cancers. Since re-education of macrophages by tumour derived ...
  • Tumour microenvironment, extracellular vesicles and their effect on prostate cancer progression and docetaxel resistance 

    Catalano, Mariadelva (Trinity College Dublin. School of Pharmacy & Pharma. Sciences. Discipline of Pharmacy, 2022)
    Prostate cancer is the fourth most common cancer in Europe and the third leading cause of death in males. The standard of care as initial treatment for prostate cancer is, typically, androgen-deprivation therapy. Although ...
  • Tumour therapy using cytokine-expressing semliki forest virus vectors 

    Gowda C. P. Chikkanna (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Microbiology, 2005)
    Semliki Forest Virus (SFV) vector is a transient RNA based suicidal expression vector system and has been previously used as a potential anti-cancer agent. Recently, a new enhanced SFV vector has been developed, pSFV10-E. ...
  • Tumourigenesis and resistance to Interferon alpha-treatment in Cutaneous T-cell Lymphoma 

    Tracey, Lorraine (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Clinical Medicine, 2005)
    Mycosis fungoides (MF) is a Cutaneous T-Cell lymphoma (CTCL) of unknown aetiology, and the mechanisms of tumourigenesis of this lymphoma are unclear. The diagnosis of MF is extremely challenging due to the fact that, in ...
  • Tuning and characterization of self-assembled plasmonic nanoparticle arrays 

    Ualibek, Oral (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2015)
    This thesis details the development and use of a novel nano-entity fabrication technique. The technique is based on a glancing angle deposition (GLAD) on transparent stepped templates. It is demonstrated that the technique ...
