  • Genotype variation at the MSTN locus is associated with skeletal muscle Coenzyme Q level in untrained Thoroughbred horses. 

    Porter, Richard (2019)
    In the finely-tuned athletic species of Thoroughbred horses, polymorphisms (Intro 1 SNP g.66493737C>T and SINE insertion 227bp in promoter) in the myostatin gene (MSTN), a pronounced inhibitor of skeletal muscle growth, ...
  • Harnessing the therapeutic properties of the Heme Oxygenase system 

    CAMPBELL, NICOLE KAREN (Trinity College Dublin. School of Biochemistry & Immunology. Discipline of Biochemistry, 2018)
    The stress response enzyme, Heme Oxygenase 1 (HO-1), has been identified as an important immunomodulator which is highly upregulated in response to cellular stress and inflammation. HO-1 catalyses the conversion of free ...
  • The establishment of hybrid cell lines from human pancreas 

    Reid, George W. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Biochemistry and Immunology, 2001)
    The need for research into diabetes mellitus is ever increasing. Of specific interest are the mechanisms responsible for glucose-responsive insulin secretion and the autoimmune destruction of pancreatic p-cells. However, ...
  • Studies on human biliverdin-IX alpha reductase and linear tetrapyrrole signaling 

    Dunne, Aisling (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Biochemistry and Immunology, 2001)
    Human Biliverdin-IXa reductase (BVR-A) has been cloned and overexpressed in E.coli as a GST- and Hexahistidine fusion protein. The full length cDNA encoding the enzyme has been amplified via PCR and hgated into the pGEX-KG ...
  • Biochemical investigations of hyperhomocysteinemia 

    Betts, Mary Victoria (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Biochemistry and Immunology, 2000)
    Hyperhomocysteinemia, a condition where plasma homocysteine occurs at an abnormally elevated level, is a common finding in vascular disease subjects. Several genetic and nutritional factors have been implicated. The first ...
