    • Molecular Evolution of the Guanylate Kinase Domain 

      Anderson, Douglas (University of Oregon, 2015-01-14)
      The evolution of novel protein functions and protein families is a fundamental question within both evolutionary biology and biochemistry. While many gene families follow predictable patterns of molecular tinkering, many ...
    • Molecular function of the cell polarity protein partner of inscuteable in Drosophila neuroblasts 

      Nipper, Rick William Jr., 1978- (University of Oregon, 2007-12)
      Asymmetric cell division (ACD) is a unique mechanism employed during development to achieve cellular diversity from a small number of progenitor cells. Cells undergoing ACD distribute factors for self-renewal at the apical ...
    • Molecular Level Insights into Carbon Capture at Liquid Surfaces 

      McWilliams, Laura (University of Oregon, 2016-10-27)
      Implementing effective and environmentally responsible carbon capture technologies is one of the principle challenges of this century. Successful implementation requires a host of engineering advancements, but also a ...
    • Molecular Mechanisms for the Evolution of DNA Specificity in a Transcription Factor Family 

      McKeown, Alesia (University of Oregon, 2015-01-14)
      Transcription factors (TFs) bind to specific DNA sequences near target genes to precisely coordinate their regulation. Despite the central role of transcription factors in development and homeostasis, the mechanisms by ...
    • Molecular mechanisms of zebrafish motoneuron development 

      Hale, Laura Ann, 1978- (University of Oregon, 2009-12)
      This dissertation describes research to identify genes involved in specification, patterning and development of zebrafish primary motoneurons. We first examined the spatiotemporal expression patterns of retinoic acid and ...
    • Molecular Mechanisms Regulating Subcellular Localization and Function of Mitotic Spindle Orientation Determinants 

      Golub, Ognjen (University of Oregon, 2016-11-21)
      Proper orientation of the mitotic spindle is essential during animal development for the generation of cell diversity and organogenesis. To understand the molecular mechanisms regulating this process, genetic studies have ...
    • Molecular Physiological Evolution: Steroid Hormone Receptors and Antifreeze Proteins 

      Cziko, Paul (University of Oregon, 2015-01-14)
      For my dissertation research I explored the diversity and functional evolution of steroid hormone receptors (SRs) in animals and the physiological implications of the evolution of antifreeze proteins in Antarctic notothenioid ...
    • Molecular Regulation of Synaptogenesis in Drosophila 

      Walla, David (University of Oregon, 2014-09-29)
      Dynamic regulation of the actin cytoskeleton is required for synapses to form and maintain their shape. The actin cytoskeleton is regulated by Rho GTPases in response to genetic and extracellular signals. Rho GTPases are ...
    • Molecular studies of hemocyanin expression in the Dungeness crab 

      Durstewitz, Gregor (Thesis (Ph. D.)--University of Oregon, 1996., 1996)
    • Moletrack scarps to mountains: Quaternary tectonics of the central Alaska Range 

      Bemis, Sean Patrick, 1979- (University of Oregon, 2010-03)
      Deformation across plate boundaries often occurs over broad zones with relative motions between plates typically accommodated by faults of different styles acting together in a complex system. Collision of the Yakutat ...
    • Monetary Policy and Heterogeneous Expectations 

      Branch, William A.; Evans, George W., 1949- (University of Oregon, Dept of Economics, 2010-04-30)
      This paper studies the implications for monetary policy of heterogeneous expectations in a New Keynesian model. The assumption of rational expec- tations is replaced with parsimonious forecasting models where agents ...
    • Monetary Policy and Stable Indeterminacy with Inertia 

      Evans, George W., 1949-; McGough, Bruce (University of Oregon, Dept. of Economics, 2004-03-29)
      We examine existence and stability under learning of sunspot equilibria in a New Keynesian model incorporating inertia. Indeterminacy remains prevalent, stable sunspots abound, and inertia in IS and AS relations do not ...
    • Monetary Policy Issues Arising From Bank Competition 

      Severe, Sean P. (University of Oregon, 2011-06)
      The banking sector has been extensively analyzed in economics. On the microeconomic side, research has advanced our understanding of banks and the inverse relationship between market power and bank production. The macroeconomic ...
    • Monetary Policy, Endogenous Inattention, and the Volatility Trade-off 

      Branch, William A.; Carlson, John; Evans, George W., 1949-; McGough, Bruce (University of Oregon, Dept of Economics, 2004-12-07)
      This paper addresses the output-price volatility puzzle by studying the interaction of optimal monetary policy and agents' beliefs. We assume that agents choose their information acquisition rate by minimizing a loss ...
    • Monetary policy, expectations and commitment 

      Evans, George W., 1949-; Honkapohja, Seppo, 1951- (University of Oregon, Dept. of Economics, 2002-05-22)
      Commitment in monetary policy leads to equilibria that are superior to those from optimal discretionary policies. A number of interest rate reaction functions and instrument rules have been proposed to implement or approxmiate ...
    • Monetary Policy, Expectations and Commitment 

      Evans, George W., 1949-; Honkapohja, Seppo, 1951- (University of Oregon, Dept of Economics, 2005-04-06)
      This is a revised and shortened version of Working Paper 2002-11. Commitment in monetary policy leads to equilibria that are superior to those from optimal discretionary policies. A number of interest rate reaction functions ...
