Biology Faculty Publications and Presentations

Background High flow nasal cannula therapy (HFNC) may increase aerosol generation, putting healthcare workers at risk, including from SARS-CoV-2. Aim This study examined whether use of HFNC increases near-field aerosols and if there is a relationship with flow rate. Methods Subjects aged four weeks to 24 months were recruited. Each child received HFNC therapy at different flow rates. Three stations with particle counters were deployed to measure particle concentrations and dispersion in the room: station one within 0.5 m, station two at 2 m, and station three on the other side of the room. We measured carbon dioxide (CO2 ...

Expression And Purification Of Hpep Inhibitor Peptide, Olivia Plaza 2021 Stephen F Austin State University

Expression And Purification Of Hpep Inhibitor Peptide, Olivia Plaza

Undergraduate Research Conference

The enzyme human prolyl peptidase, or hPEP, has been linked to many processes within the brain, including breaking down neural peptides. A bovine milk protein, a-s1-casein (see above), has been found to inhibit hPEP in colon cancer cells. A 68 amino acid long section (bolded) of a-s1- casein containing the inhibitor region was cloned. The casein fragment expression was optimized for expression of the peptide. The purpose for optimizing expression is to have much of it on hand to utilize in further studies on its inhibitory properties on hPEP. By using this fragment of casein, one can study the structure ...

Papers & Publications: Interdisciplinary Journal of Undergraduate Research

The gut microbiome plays an essential role in the health of many organisms, including insects. Here we report initial findings of bacteria present in the caterpillar midgut of the cabbage looper, Trichoplusia ni, grown in lab conditions on artificial diet and identified using biochemical tests. We identified one species previously reported as part of the gut microbiota of Trichoplusia ni and three species not previously reported. Our results support the need for multiple types of bacterial identification when looking at gut microbiomes, with the most confidence in identification being when multiple tests are in agreement.
