Isolation and analysis of a corprinus cinereus DNA fragment showing homology to a fimbrial cDNA from ustilago violacea
(Brock University, 1993-10-02)
Surface proteinaceous fibrils, termed fimbriae, were first identified on gram negative bacteria in the 1940s. Fungal fimbriae, discovered some 25 years later, are found on members of all fungal classes. In the present ...

The influence of skeletal muscle cell volume on the regulation of carbohydrate uptake and muscle metabolism
(Brock University, 2007-06-01)
This study investigated the regulation of carbohydrate metabolism and glucose uptake through changes in skeletal muscle cell volume. Using an established invitro isolated whole muscle model, soleus (SOL) and extensor ...
Coaches' use of and impressions of computer-mediated communication (CMC) media /
(Brock University, 2009-06-15)
The study examined coaches' usage of text-based computer-mediated communication (CMC) media (e.g., text-messaging, email) in the coach-player relationship. Data were collected by surveying Ontario-based male baseball ...
Determinants of left ventricular mass as measured by Doppler echocardiography in pre-adolescents
(Brock University, 2006-06-04)
This study examined factors contributing to the differences in left ventricular mass as measured by Doppler echocardiography in children. Fourteen boys (10.3 ± 0.3 years of age) and 1 1 girls (10.5 ± 0.4 years of age) ...
The effects of R(+)-lipoic acid supplementation on regulation of human skeletal muscle pyruvate dehydrogenase
(Brock University, 2006-06-04)
This thesis investigated whole body glucose disposal and the adaptive changes in skeletal muscle carbohydrate metabolism following 28 d of supplementation with 1000 mg R(+)-lipoic acid in young sedentary males (age, 22.1 ...
The impact of drug-induced dyskinesias on rapid alternating movements in patients with Parkinson's disease
(Brock University, 2005-06-15)
We investigated the likelihood that hypokinesia/bradykinesia coexist with druginduced dyskinesias (DID) in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). The influence of dyskinesias on rapid alternating movements (RAM) was ...
