Isolation And Characterization Of Microbial Community Associated With Diadumene Lineata, The Orange-Striped Sea Anemone, Tiffany Lin, Andrew Weir Jan 2016

Isolation And Characterization Of Microbial Community Associated With Diadumene Lineata, The Orange-Striped Sea Anemone, Tiffany Lin, Andrew Weir

Student and Faculty Research Days

The orange-striped sea anemone, Diadumene lineata, is a marine invertebrate that can be found in the Northern Hemisphere. Distribution of Diadumene lineata ranges from Japan to the Gulf of Argentina. This invasive anemone originated from the Pacific Coast of Asia and serves as a host for a diverse microbial community including a photosynthetic alga. The epiphytic bacteria adhere to the outer surface as well as to the gastrovascular cavity of the host. The microbial community associated with Diadumene lineata is relatively unknown. This study attempted to isolate and identify bacteria commonly associated with this invasive marine invertebrate. Diadumene lineata was ...


Sustainable Promotion In Hospitality, Anette Isabella Nilsen May 2015

Sustainable Promotion In Hospitality, Anette Isabella Nilsen

Honors College Theses

With the ever-increasing need to reduce our carbon foot print, the necessity to innovate for a more sustainable future has become the responsibility of both individuals and corporations. Sustainable development, which is development that “meets our needs today, without compromising the ability meet the needs of future generations” was first brought to light at the Earth Summit in 1987 (Bärlund, n.d.). With the growing numbers of travelers world wide, the hospitality industry was aware that environmental changes and pollution could potentially paralyze their industry and they became among the first to adopt more sustainable practices in their hotels and ...


Affluent Populations And Their Effect On Biological Diversity Through The Consumption Of Meat, Electronics, And Motor Vehicles, Melody Flores Jul 2014

Affluent Populations And Their Effect On Biological Diversity Through The Consumption Of Meat, Electronics, And Motor Vehicles, Melody Flores

Honors College Theses

The human has caused a far greater impact on the planet's biodiversity than any other species in existence, due to the impact of population, afflluence, and technology. This thesis will argue the importance of biological diversity and how affluent populations are reducing biodiversity through the consumption of meat, electronics, and motor vehicles. Aldo Leopold's "The Land Ethic" and Herman Daly's "The Impossibility Theorem", among others, create a rubric evaluating human activities and provide alternative views on economic impossibilities. Consumption is reviewed from an ecocentric perspective, a holistic outlook placing emphasis on the ecosystem. The reader will become ...


Animals' Capability To Bond And The Implications That Follow, Falyn Goldfarb Jan 2014

Animals' Capability To Bond And The Implications That Follow, Falyn Goldfarb

Honors College Theses

This paper explores the ways in which humans have historically viewed animals, with a focus on Descartes theory automata. Further concepts of the problem of different minds, inherent value, empathy, love, friendship, grief, isolation, anthropomorphism, and biochemistry (focusing on oxytocin, cortisol and the prefrontal cortex) are all explored. Numerous literature reviews are used as examples to fight against the argument that animals are merely machines and can therefore be used and abused. Animal social bonds, including parent-child, purely social, and animal-human, are analyzed for their evolutionary and biological purposes in attempt to highlight the relationships that are not obviously valuable ...

The Effects Of Glutathione And Its Derivatives On The Survival Of Mycobacterium Bovis-Bcg Vegetative And Persistent Organisms, Neil Patel May 2013

The Effects Of Glutathione And Its Derivatives On The Survival Of Mycobacterium Bovis-Bcg Vegetative And Persistent Organisms, Neil Patel

Honors College Theses

Mycobacterium tuberculosis is responsible for nearly 2 million deaths yearly. Upon inhalation,mycobacteria are engulfed by alveolar macrophages. These cells produce reactive oxygen and nitrogen intermediates (ROI’s and RNI’s), which normally kill pathogens, but are ineffective against invading mycobacteria. What ensues, is the formation of a tubercle to sequester the infected macrophages, and the initiation of a latent tuberculosis infection, in which the mycobacteria enter a state of non-replicative persistence (NRP). Glutathione (GSH), a host tripeptide thiol-based detoxification molecule, protects host cells from ROI/RNI toxicity.Recently, it has been demonstrated that GSH is toxic to in vitro ...

Mass Spectrometric Analysis Of Oxidized Eicosapentaenoic Acid Sodium Salt, Kelsey D. Jordan, Rita K. Upmacis Jan 2013

Mass Spectrometric Analysis Of Oxidized Eicosapentaenoic Acid Sodium Salt, Kelsey D. Jordan, Rita K. Upmacis

Student-Faculty Research Projects

Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is an omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) with 20 carbon atoms and 5 carbon-carbon double bonds. Mammalian cells cannot synthesize long chain PUFAs such as EPA de novo, and, thus, the most effective way to enrich cells in EPA is by dietary intake of fish oils. EPA supplementation causes an increase in its concentration in plasma lipids and in cell membrane phospholipids. Many beneficial effects of EPA supplementation have been noted, including (1) the potential to sensitize cancerous tumors towards chemotherapy, (2) the promotion of cardiovascular health, and (3) the alleviation of some mental disorders, but results ...

Acetylcholinesterase Isozyme Banding May Be Useful In Revealing Heart Failure, Cherelle Palmer, Charlene Blando-Hoegler Jan 2012

Acetylcholinesterase Isozyme Banding May Be Useful In Revealing Heart Failure, Cherelle Palmer, Charlene Blando-Hoegler

Student-Faculty Research Projects

Cardiopathology provides insights into the functioning heart and its circulatory vessels. Recent studies have proposed a critical role for esterases in heart failure (Dunlop et. al. 2003). Evidence points to a loss of vagal (parasympathetic) control and a parallel increase in sympathetic activity as the disease progresses. Other researchers (Ojaimi et.al. 2007) used microarray technique on tissues from canine paced heart failure models to show selective re-regulation of genes as the pathology developed. To further explore this connection, a pilot project comparing the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE) from normal (N) and heart failure (HF) specimens was designed. Non-denaturing polyacrylamide gel ...

The Gel Documentation System: A Cornerstone To The Implementation Of The Introduction To Biotechnology And Introduction To Bioinformatics Cross-Disciplinary Course Series (Final Report), Marcy Kelly, Gregory Lampard, Constance Knapp

Cornerstone 3 Reports : Interdisciplinary Informatics

Our original goal was to offer Pace undergraduate students opportunities to be introduced to both Biotechnology and Computer Science as it relates to Bioinformatics. We proposed a two course series, offered to both computer science and biology students that will increase both biological and computer science literacy of our students. The two courses are Introduction to Biotechnology (BIO 372) and Introduction to Bioinformatics.
