Construction of cDNA libraries, and the selection and expression of proteins and peptides involved in haemostasis
(University of the Free State, 2004-06)
English: The need to find new manners in which to combat cardiovascular disease and associated thrombotic complications, remains a high priority in industrialised countries. Even in third-world countries the implications ...
Microparticles derived from stimulation of human umbilical endothelium
(University of the Free State, 2013)
English: Endothelial microparticle reseach is currently a very novel and exciting topic in the field of haemosistasis and thrombosis. The role of microparticles in inflammatory and thrombotic disorders is however not ...
"Killer-cell immunoglobulin-like receptor haplotype diversity in three Free State population groups"
(University of the Free State, 2006-11)
English: In the foregoing project, an investigation was made into the relative KIR gene frequencies of three South African cohorts. Playing an important part in innate immunity, KIR fill a vital gap between viral onsets ...
The screening for single nucleotide polymorphisms of CYP3A4 in chronic myelogenous leukemia patients receiving imatinib
(University of the Free State, 2009-05)
English: Chronic myelogenous leukaemia (CML) is a malignant clonal disorder that results in the uncontrolled production of white blood cells. This disease is a result of a reciprocal translocation of the long arms of ...
Prevalence of helicobacter pylori and its relation to cytotoxin-associated gene a status in HIV positive and negative haematology patients
(University of the Free State, 2007-10)
Abstract not available
The effect of inflammatory cytokines and coagulation factors on Von Willebrand factor synthesis and cleavage
(University of the Free State, 2012-02)
When injured, endothelial cells secrete inflammatory cytokines such as interleukin-6 (IL-6), interleukin-8 (IL-8), and tumour necrosis factor-α (TNF-α). These inflammatory cytokines stimulate the endothelial release of ...
The application of high-resolution melting curve analysis for the detection of mutations in the MCR-ABL kinase domain of patients with chronic myeloid leukaemia
(University of the Free State, 2011-12)
CML is a haematological malignancy that is characterized by the BCR-ABL fusion oncogene that encodes a constitutively active tyrosine kinase. The treatment of choice for CML is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor and molecular ...
Molecular screening of Coloured South African breast cancer patients for the presence of BRCA mutations using high resolution melting analysis
(University of the Free State, 2016-08)
English: The populations of South Africa (SA) exhibit a rainbow of genetic diversity due to the high contribution of ancestral genetic admixture. The economic structure of this third world country has limited the exploration ...
Presence of glyphosate in food products in South Africa of which maize or soybean is the primary constituent
(University of the Free State, 2017-02)
English: South Africa is considered a major GM crop producing country. The predominant GM trait in maize and soybean in South Africa is herbicide tolerance. Herbicide tolerant (HT) crops allow for the application of herbicide ...
Investigating the genetic profile of the E-cadherin gene in squamous carcinoma of the esophagus
(University of the Free State, 2003-06)
