Alterations in the ability to adjust energy intake when optional dietary foods are available may contribute to aging-related changes in body composition. Ingestive behavior, however, has not been extensively studied in aging models. The present research used young, middle-aged and old rats to examine food intake under several different schedules of optional(More)
Intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) have been shown to be involved in a number of cellular functions, in addition to their predominance in diseased states. α-synuclein may be described as one such IDP implicated in the pathology of Parkinson's disease. Understanding the conformational characteristics of the monomeric state of α-synuclein is necessary(More)
Teriflunomide is an oral disease-modifying therapy recently approved in several locations for relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. To gain insight into the effects of teriflunomide, immunocyte population changes were measured during progression of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis in Dark Agouti rats. Treatment with teriflunomide attenuated(More)

In the years since, academics from various disciplines have renewed their interest in the topic of secession. A lively discussion in the academic mainstream on the morality and legality of secession has occurred among(More)
Replica exchange molecular dynamics simulations are used to generate three ensembles of an S-peptide analog (AETAAAKFLREHMDS). Percent helicity of the peptide ensembles calculated using STRIDE is compared to percent helicity calculated from (13)C(alpha) chemical shift deviations (CSD) from random coil in order to test the assumption that CSD can be(More)

Philosophers and legal theorists still disagree about the correct analysis of 'rights', both moral and legal. The 'Will Theory' and the 'Interest Theory'—the two main views—can each account for various features of rights, but neither of them is totally satisfactory. The controversy has now been running for decades and seems irresolvable. I will contend in(More)
