    • Genetic screening for suppressor mutation in Caenorhabditis elegans odr-3 mutants 

      Carroll, Jacqueline; Badra, Anthony; Cantu, Analisa; Conway, Caitlyn; Diaz, Ashley; Gunderson, Annika (2020-04-21)
      A suppressor mutation is a mutation that negates the effects of a different, separate mutation, facilitating a return to the wild-type phenotype. In this experiment, a suppressor mutation screen of a mutation of the odr-3 ...
    • Genetic suppressor of che-3 serotonin response defects 

      Kirsch, Lauren; Chaudhury, Tristin; Farlough, Catera; Gamayot, Jannine; Rodriguez, Grace; Weinberg, Savannah (2020-04-21)
      che-3 is a cytosolic dynein heavy chain within Caenorhabditis elegans. This motor protein acts in intraflagellar transport and maintains structural integrity of sensory cilia structures. When mutated at the che-3 genetic ...
    • Genetic suppressors of str-2 serotonin response defects in Caenorhabditis elegans 

      Kumar, Amy; Gakhar, Shiv; Harris, Julian; Story, Shelby; Vo, Henry; Vo, Bill (2020-04-21)
      C. elegans, a nematode, is a model organism to study animal behavior and development. The genome of the C. elegans shows that there is a similarity between the genes of the nematode and that of humans. C. elegans are widely ...
    • 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 ...
    • The Influence of Imipramine on the Egg-Laying Behavior of Caenorhabditis elegans 

      Alaniz, Alyssa; Valencia, Michael James; Hussain, Neha; Feese, Emily Ann; Luksch, Annie Sarah; Mancillas, Victoria Alexandra (2018-08-06)
      Discovering new ways to treat mental disorders is at the forefront of scientific research due to their imposing challenges on worldwide health. A current drug therapy option is imipramine, marketed as Tofranil, a tricyclic ...
    • Isolation of Mutant Caenorhabditis elegans ​Resistant to Integrin α Subunit Deficiency 

      Johnson, Bryce; Battle, Rachel; Chavez, Boozaziel; Escamilla, Astrid; Smelser, Ashton (2020-04-21)
      The ina-1-encoded integrin α subunit is essential to Caenorhabditis elegans development, due to its role in complex processes such as morphogenesis, neuron migration, and cell signaling. Studies have shown that when this ...
    • Isolation of the him-4 suppressor mutation which rescues the vitality of C. elegans 

      Phipps, V.; Hartsfield, D.; Marsh, T.; Shalo, P.; Shields, B. (2020-04-21)
      The nematode Caenorhabditis contains hemicentin, which is a protein that aids in gonad development, as well as tissue formation. The him-4 gene, associated with the production of hemicentin, was used to observe the effects ...
