    • The Effect of Mutations in Toll-like Receptors on Caenorhabditis elegans Egg-Laying signaling 

      Deande, Matthew Thomas; Hayashi, Merrick Max; Bougoulias, Michael; Smith, Brock David; Hilbig, Gabriel (2018-08-06)
      While many factors show to affect egg laying in C. elegans, we are interested in the downstream effects of Toll-like receptors (TLRs) and their impact on egg laying because a direct relationship is still unknown. Studies ...
    • Effects of VPA on Mutated C. elegans 

      Phan, Quynh-An Ngoc; Munnangi, Kavya; Beattie, Hailey Cristina; Tran, Sean; Lee, Chi-Hung (2018-08-06)
      Valproic acid (VPA) is a generalized drug used to alleviate a broad range of conditions in humans such as bipolar disorders as well as Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, and other neuromuscular diseases. The use of VPA in ...
    • Induced Mutation in Caenorhabditis elegans Causes Dopamine Resistance 

      Walker, Brody; Grewal, Amanpreet Singh; Grayson, Nicholas Kallas; Harris, Luke Reed; Diokpa, Chijindu; Aceves, Tatiana (2018-08-06)
      In humans, drug addiction is linked to varying dependencies of dopamine levels in the brain. The neurotransmitter is involved in many behavioral mechanisms in animals and mediates the reward pathway. In C. elegans, one of ...
