  • A promoter characterisation of the Ets transcription factor gene, Ese-2/Elf-5

    Speed, Kathy Ann (The University of Waikato, 2002)
    E26 transformation specific (Ets) proteins are a versatile class of transcription factors. They act both up and downstream of signal transduction cascades, are causative in cancer generation and are able to control the ...
  • Cationic liposome-mediated transfection of mammary epithelial cells with AAV-based plasmid DNA

    Whyte, Brett (The University of Waikato, 2001)
    Cationic liposome-mediated delivery of adeno-associated virus (AAV) based plasmid DNA has potential for efficient and safe delivery of DNA into a number of different cell types. The objective of this thesis was to develop ...
  • Clonal cell proliferation in the mammary gland

    Jacobson, Gregory M. (The University of Waikato, 2004)
    The primary aim of this thesis was to classify the nature of the clonal expansion of cells that gives rise to bovine and murine mammary epithelia. It is generally assumed that the mammary gland is derived from the outgrowth ...
  • Retroviruses in the common brush-tailed possum (Trichosurus vulpecula)

    Baillie, Gregory John (The University of Waikato, 1999)
    This study details the search for, and characterisation of, retroviruses in a marsupial, the common brush-tailed possum (Trichosurus vulpecula). Initial efforts were directed at detecting exogenous retroviruses in possums, ...
  • The role of growth factors in the regeneration of skeletal muscle

    Kirk, Sondra Powers (The University of Waikato, 2001)
    The overall aim of this thesis was to examine myostatin and components of the insulin-like growth factor (IGF) axis during regeneration, to determine whether these factors were temporally regulated during regeneration, ...
