  1. Molecular mechanism of action of the glucocorticoid receptor:Role of ligand-dependent receptor phosphorylation and half-life in determination of ligand-specific transcriptional activity. : Chapter 4
    Avenant, Chanel, 2009, University of Cape Town Libraries
    Glucocorticoids mediate their effects by binding to the glucocorticoid receptor (GR), resulting in modulation of transcription of target genes via direct binding to DNA or tethering via proteinprotein interactions. A central question is what determines the rank order of ligand-selective transcriptio ...
  2. Geodynamic Evolution and Petrogenesis of the Neoarchaean Francistown Granite-Greenstone complex in NE Botswana, SW Margin of the Zimbabwe Craton : Chapter 4
    Bagai, Zibisani, 2008, University of Cape Town Libraries
    The Archaean Francistown Granite-Greenstone Complex in NE Botswana is an integral part of the southwestern margin of the Zimbabwe Craton. It includes a suite of geochemically diverse Neoarchaean granitoids and mafic dominated-supracrustal assemblages. All the supracrustal rocks and mafic intrusions ...
  3. A Hybrid and Cross-Protocol Architecture with Semantics and Syntaz Awareness to Improve Intrusion Detection Effeciency in Voice over IP Environments
    Barry, Bazara I A, 2008, University of Cape Town Libraries
    Voice and data have been traditionally carried on different types of networks based on different technologies, namely, circuit switching and packet switching respectively. Convergence in networks enables carrying voice, video, and other data on the same packet-switched infrastructure, and provides v ...
  4. Outsourcing intelligence: The relationship between the state and Private intelligence in post apartheid South Africa
    Butt, Stephen, 2010, University of Cape Town Libraries
    The state claims the monopoly of the legitimate use of force. This is not to suggest however that the state cannot and does not outsource the practical exercise of force. On the contrary, the outsourcing of a wide range of military and security roles and functions is, to a greater or lesser extent, ...
  5. The Community of Steinkopf : Appendices
    Carstens, WP, 1961, University of Cape Town Libraries
    This thesis consists mainly of an analysis of the social structure of a small community of rural Coloured people who live on a reserve surrounding the old mission station, Steinkopf, in the North-Western Cape Province. It has been written primarily as an ethnographic study of one of the constituent ...
  6. Approaches to Quantifying and Reducing uncertainty in GCMS over Southern Africa : Chapter 5
    Carter, Suzanne, 2008, University of Cape Town Libraries
    Global Circulation Models (GCMs) are the primary tool for simulating future climate changes. These models by necessity make use of various assumptions and simplifications due to computational constraints, and in so doing introduce biases and systematic error. Along with other sources of uncertainty ...

  8. Paradoxical Subjects - Women Telling Birth Stories
    Chadwick, Rachelle Joy, 2007, University of Cape Town Libraries
    This study focuses on the construction of subjectivity in and through the telling of birth stories. Drawing on 50 interviews with middle-class women, most of who âchoseâ to birth either at home or via elective caesarean section, the thesis explores how women make birth &acirc ...
  9. Numerical ocean Model study of the Agulhas Bank and the Cool Ridge : Contents Pages
    Chang, Nicolette, 2008, University of Cape Town Libraries
    The oceanic structure and circulation of the Agulhas Bank, the very wide continental shelf area off South Africa, has been explored in this thesis. The Agulhas Bank is a complex ocean region influenced by shelf processes as well as a nearby western boundary current, the Agulhas Current on its easter ...
  10. Investigating genetic diversity at neutral and adaptive DNA markers in the severly bottlenecked Southern white Rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum simum)
    Coutts, Natalie June, 2009, University of Cape Town Libraries
    Most HIV vaccines currently in development aim to protect people from infection or disease by eliciting strong anti-HIV cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) responses. Evolved evasion mutations that undermine host immune responses pose a major challenge to the development of such vaccines. Understanding the ...
