AbstractTelemetry data are usually collected for analysis at some later time and can be monitored to follow the progress of a test. In the case of an Air Data System the signals from the sensors are sent to a computer that calculates the air data parameters for use on multiple LabView-generated displays, as well as to the Data Acquisition System. The readouts on the multiple displays need to be real-time so they are useful to the flight crew. Equations that control the different air data values are determined by what telemetry data are available and the preference of those doing the test planning. These systems need to display the information in a format useful to the flight crew and be reliable.

ANALYSIS OF THE AMINO-TERMINAL DOMAIN OF DROSOPHILA RBF1 INDICATES NOVEL ROLES IN CELL REGULATIONAhlander, Joseph Andrew (The University of Arizona., 2009)The retinoblastoma tumor suppressor protein (RB) is an important regulator of the cell cycle and development. Significantly, RB is inactivated in a majority of human cancers. Thus, elucidating the function of RB will give us a better understanding of how it prevents cancer. Many decades of research have yielded a detailed understanding of the role of RB in cell proliferation through transcriptional repression of target genes. However, the precise mechanisms of its action in many cellular pathways are poorly understood, including the control of DNA replication and post-transcriptional control of gene expression. Drosophila melanogaster presents a simplified genetic system to study cancer genes. Several published observations have suggested a role for RB in regulating DNA replication. Interestingly, other data indicate that RB associates with RNA processing factors. I have characterized novel protein-protein interactions with the Drosophila retinoblastoma tumor suppressor homologue Rbf, with an emphasis on its poorly characterized N-terminal domain. I describe the interaction of Rbf with the origin recognition complex, indicating a unique connection to DNA replication control. I also show that Rbf interacts with the RNA binding protein Squid, and review the literature that suggests potential role of RB/E2F in the control of RNA processing. The ability to control RNA processing may be an additional, unappreciated mode of gene regulation by RB. A focused study of the uncharacterized amino-terminal domain of Rbf has revealed new details about the retinoblastoma tumor suppressor in cell regulation, including DNA replication and RNA processing.
A Life-History Model of Human Fitness IndicatorsSefcek, Jon Adam (The University of Arizona., 2007)Recent adaptationist accounts of human mental and physical health have reinvigorated the debate over the evolution of human intelligence. In the tradition of strong inference the current study was developed to determine which hypothesis; Rushton’s (2000) differential K theory, or Miller’s (2000a) fitness indicator model (F), better accounts for general intelligence ('g') in an undergraduate university population (N = 194). Due to the lengthy administration time of the test materials a newly developed 18-item short form of the Ravens Advanced Progressive Matrices (APM-18; Sefcek, Miller, & Figueredo, 2007) was used. There was a significant positive relationship between K and F (r = .31, p < .001), however no significant relationships were found between 'g' and either K or F (for each, r = -.06, p ≥ .05). While contrary to both hypotheses, these results may be explained in relation to antagonistic pleiotropy and a potential failure to derive within species comparisons directly from between species comparisons.
Proteomic and Microarray Identification of Novel Cardiac Specific Indicators of Oxidative Injury and Mechanism of ActionXie, Lifang (The University of Arizona., 2007)Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in the United States. Oxidative stress plays an important role in the pathogenesis of CVD. Heart failure is the end point of many forms of CVD. The purpose of this study is to identify novel cardiac specific indicators of oxidative injury useful for early and convenient diagnosis of heart failure.To determine the most suitable method for identification of non-invasive oxidative injury indicators in general, human diploid fibroblasts (HDFs) were treated with H2O2 for collection of mRNA, cell lysates and conditioned media to perform cDNA microarray and LC-MS/MS based Multidimensional Protein Identification Technology (MudPIT) analyses. Electron Spray Ionization (ESI)-LC-MS/MS analysis of the conditioned media led to the finding of IGFBP-6 as a non-invasive biomarker of cell oxidative injuy in vitro and in vivo. The data obtained from this study indicate that proteomic analysis of conditioned media is useful to identify non-invasive biomarkers valuable for diagnosis or management of diseases.Cardiomyocyts (CMCs) and Cardiac fibroblasts (CFs) in culture were used to identify cardiac specific indicators of oxidative stress. Increased level of Cystatin C was detected in the conditioned medium of CMCs due to H2O2 treatment. In vivo models of oxidative stress were used to validate the increase of Cystatin C. Cystatin C levels increased in the plasma of mice with doxorubicin induced cardiomyopathy and coronary artery occlusion induced myocardial infarction (MI). These data indicate that Cystatin C can be a potential indicator of CMC oxidative injury in vitro and in vivo.Cystatin C is a cysteine protease inhibitor. The finding that oxidative stress induces Cystatin C led us to investigate a novel pathway regulating cardiac extracellular matrix (ECM) with CFs in culture, increased levels of ECM protein and decreased levels of Cathepsin B (CTB) protein and activity were detected upon Cystatin C treatment. With coronary artery occlusion induced MI mouse model, increased levels of Cystatin C and ECM protein and decreased levels of CTB protein and activity were detected in the infarcted area of the myocardium. These data indicate that Cystatin C serves as a potential fibrotic factor during myocardial remodeling.
