I obtained a Bachelor's degree at Oregon State University and Masters and Ph.D. degrees at the University of Minnesota. My doctoral thesis detailed a purification protocol for phytochrome, a plant pigment that regulates photomorphogenetic events in plant development. This work also characterized the hydrodynamic behavior of phytochrome, exploring size and shape parameters and subunit structure, and observed the effects of chemical cross-linking on its phototransformation. This work was extended at the University of California at Davis. Here, with Dr. J. Clark Lagarias, I was able to complete work on purification procedures that resulted in the isolation of phytochrome that was stable and unmodified with respect to in vivo characterizations using conventional protein purification methods.

Inhibition of melanization by serpin-5 and serpin-9 promotes baculovirus infection in cotton bollworm Helicoverpa armigera.

Melanization, an important insect defense mechanism, is mediated by clip-domain serine protease (cSP) cascades and is regulated by serpins. Here we show that proteolytic activation of prophenoloxidase...

The use of an artificial neural network to model the infection strategy for baculovirus production in suspended insect cell cultures.

Since the infection strategy in the baculovirus-insect cell system mostly affects production of the vector itself or the target product, and given that individual infection parameters interact with ea...

Molecular Alliance of Lymantria dispar Multiple Nucleopolyhedrovirus and a Short Unmodified Antisense Oligonucleotide of Its Anti-Apoptotic IAP-3 Gene: A Novel Approach for Gypsy Moth Control.

Baculovirus IAP (inhibitor-of-apoptosis) genes originated by capture of host genes. Unmodified short antisense DNA oligonucleotides (oligoDNAs) from baculovirus IAP genes can down-regulate specific ge...

Real-time imaging reveals unique heterogeneous population features in insect cell cultures.

Heterogeneity of cellular populations has been frequently observed. We used live cell imaging to follow Sf9 insect cells before and after infection with baculovirus, to understand population dynamics....

The activity of phenoloxidase in haemolymph plasma is not a predictor of Lymantria dispar resistance to its baculovirus.

Host innate immunity is one of the factors that determines the resistance of insects to their entomopathogens. In the research reported here we studied whether or not phenoloxidase (PO), a key enzyme ...
