Human Physiology Community Education, Sasha Volgamore, Kristen Mitchell 2010 Boise State University

Human Physiology Community Education, Sasha Volgamore, Kristen Mitchell

Service-Learning Program

The purpose of our project was to educate community members of all age groups to provide them with a basic knowledge of the fundamental workings of the human body, with specific emphasis on skeletal muscle physiology and cardiovascular physiology. It is our hope that members of our target audiences will use this information for future self-directed inquiries into human physiology with regard to their own bodies. Regardless of their age, everyone can decide to eat healthier and live a more active lifestyle. With the knowledge we provided the community, we hope they will appreciate that a healthy lifestyle is paramount …


The Effects Of Cocaine And Ecstasy On Cardiac Myocytes And The Intact Myocardium, David A. Tiangco 2010 Old Dominion University

The Effects Of Cocaine And Ecstasy On Cardiac Myocytes And The Intact Myocardium, David A. Tiangco

Theses and Dissertations in Biomedical Sciences

Cocaine and ecstasy are widely used illicit drugs. Both drugs have undergone intense scrutiny as information regarding their side-effects has become available. One important yet incomplete area of investigation pertains to their effects on the heart. The purpose of the current studies was to test the hypothesis that exposure to cocaine or ecstasy will adversely affect cellular homeostasis and normal heart function. Cultured cardiac myocytes (H9c2) and New Zealand White rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) were used to measure the responses to various concentrations of cocaine or ecstasy at both the cellular and intact organ system levels. We observed that cocaine and …


Stem Cells And Germ Cells: Microrna And Gene Expression Signatures, Paul Dyce, Derek Toms, Julang Li 2010 University of Guelph

Stem Cells And Germ Cells: Microrna And Gene Expression Signatures, Paul Dyce, Derek Toms, Julang Li

Paul W. Dyce

The study of primordial germ cell development in vivo is hampered by their low numbers and inaccessibility. Recent research has shown the ability of embryonic and adult stem cells to differentiate into primordial germ cells and more mature gametes and this generation of germ cells in vitro may be an attractive model for their study. One of the biggest challenges facing in vitro differentiation of stem cells into primordial germ cells is the lack of markers to clearly distinguish the two. As both cell types originate early in embryonic development they share many pluripotent markers such as OCT4, VASA, FRAGILIS, …

A Rapid, Flow Cytometry-Based Assay For The Determination Of Natural Killer Cell Activity In Isolated Periphery Blood Mononuclear Cells, Emily C.P. LaVoy, Brian K. McFarlin 2010 University of Houston - Main

A Rapid, Flow Cytometry-Based Assay For The Determination Of Natural Killer Cell Activity In Isolated Periphery Blood Mononuclear Cells, Emily C.P. Lavoy, Brian K. Mcfarlin

International Journal of Exercise Science: Conference Proceedings

Natural killer cell activity (NKCA) is an important assessment of innate immunity in humans. Natural killer (NK) cells are known to be affected by exercise; therefore it is of interest to have an efficient method for measuring NKCA in pre- and post-exercise blood samples. Assays for NKCA include incubating human NK cells (effector cells) with stained target cells. The target cells are typically from the human leukemia cell line K562. The number of K562 target cells killed can be determined using a dead cell dye. Control target cells incubated alone provide a measure of spontaneous cell death. PURPOSE: The purpose …

Corticosterone Levels In Sedentary, Wheel, And Treadmill Acclimated Mice Following A Bout Of Forced Treadmill Running, Nadia H. Agha, Joesph Potucek, Kelley Strohacker, Whitney L. Breslin, Brian K. Mcfarlin

International Journal of Exercise Science: Conference Proceedings

Murine models have been used to study the immune response to exercise under various diet and training interventions .Our laboratory has previously studied the effect of forced exercise versus voluntary exercise on fasting blood glucose measurements. However, forced exercise may result in increased corticosterone levels. This may affect glucose levels and subsequent weight gain. Male, wild-type CD-1 mice were randomly divided into the following groups: forced exercise, wheel running, and sedentary. After a 8- weeks of the intervention, all mice were placed on a treadmill and forced to run for 30 minutes. Blood was collected from the mice prior to …


No Impact Of Cmv Or Ebv Seropositivity On The Frequency Of Highly Differentiated T-Cells In Mexican-American Adolescents, Guillaume Spielmann, Craig A. Johnston, Richard J. Simpson, Brian K. McFarlin, John P. Foreyt 2010 University of Houston

No Impact Of Cmv Or Ebv Seropositivity On The Frequency Of Highly Differentiated T-Cells In Mexican-American Adolescents, Guillaume Spielmann, Craig A. Johnston, Richard J. Simpson, Brian K. Mcfarlin, John P. Foreyt

International Journal of Exercise Science: Conference Proceedings

Recurring activations of the prevalent latent herpes viruses Cytomegalovirus (CMV) and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) induces immune cell division leading to the premature terminal differentiation of T-cells. Terminally differentiated T-cells are known to accumulate with age causing a reduction in the naïve T-cell repertoire, which compromises the ability of the adaptive immune system to respond to novel pathogens. Although CMV and EBV seropositivity are hallmarks of the “immune risk profile” and are known to influence the frequency of terminally differentiated T-cells and increase infection risk in adults, it is not known if CMV or EBV impacts on the frequency of these …


The Effects Of Exercise And A Low-Fat Diet On Monocyte Tlr Expression And Disease Risk In Mice, Katie C. Carpenter, Kelley Strohacker, Whitney Breslin, Nadia Agha, Thomas W. Lowder, Richard J. Simpson, Brian K. McFarlin 2010 University of Houston - Main

The Effects Of Exercise And A Low-Fat Diet On Monocyte Tlr Expression And Disease Risk In Mice, Katie C. Carpenter, Kelley Strohacker, Whitney Breslin, Nadia Agha, Thomas W. Lowder, Richard J. Simpson, Brian K. Mcfarlin

International Journal of Exercise Science: Conference Proceedings

Excess adiposity increases systemic inflammation, which is implicated in various diseases. Physical activity is a common treatment to reverse weight gain and increased disease risk; however, little evidence is available to determine if forced or voluntary exercise is more effective in mice. Such information has implications for the refinement of human exercise interventions. PURPOSE: To determine if 8-weeks of exercise combined with low-fat feeding reverses changes in disease risk, monocyte concentration and monocyte TLR2/TLR4 expression. METHODS: For 12-months, 24 CD-1 mice underwent pre-treatment, consuming either a low-fat (10% kcal from fat, N=6) or high-fat (60% kcal from fat, N=18) diet …
