    • The development and characterization of a somatic cell line for feline nuclear transfer 

      Hutchison, Sarah Adrianne (Texas A&M University, 2013-02-22)
      Nuclear transfer is fast becoming an alternative method for reproduction, and it is useful in producing genetically identical animals. This study was designed to develop and characterize a cell line which may be possible ...
    • Effects of substrate, phenological cutting stage, and auxin concentration on rooting of Cotinus obovatus Raf. 

      Denny, Geoffrey Carlile (Texas A&M University, 2013-02-22)
      A study was conducted to determine the effects of substrate, phenological stage of cuttings and auxin concentrations on the rooting of Texas smoke tree (Cotinus obovatus Raf). Softwood, semi-hardwood and hardwood cuttings ...
    • Identification of telomerase in dog 

      Lyuksyutova, Anna (Texas A&M University, 2013-02-22)
      In recent years, the enzyme telomerase has been found to be very active in human cancer cells but not in normal cells in the body. This discovery is predictable, as telomerase is responsible for maintenance of the telomeres ...
    • Identifying, mapping, and antisensing candidate HP1 sequences in tomato 

      Hommel, Jonathan Dean (Texas A&M University, 2013-02-22)
      The tomato has been an agriculturally important crop for centuries. For that reason, learning about the fundamental biochemistry and physiology of the plant has been an active research area for decades and has lead to ...
    • Research on feline in vitro maturation and the cell cycle 

      Cox, Ashley Michelle (Texas A&M University, 2013-02-22)
      The feline meiotic cycle is poorly understood. In order to elucidate the events occurring during meiosis in the cat oocyte, a study of the levels of Maturation Promoting Factor (MPF) and MAP Kinase (MAPK), enzymes thought ...
