Investigations Into the Significance of Lysine Residues in IGF-I

Sivaramakrishnan, Manaswini (2013) Investigations Into the Significance of Lysine Residues in IGF-I. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This PhD thesis presents novel and original research in the field of Insulin-like Growth Factor-I (or IGF-I) biology. IGF-I plays an essential role in promoting normal human growth and development; it also represents both a target and treatment for various diseases. This thesis provides interesting insights into previously uncharacterised mechanisms of action that underlie IGF-I biology. Such findings may lead to improved and novel treatments across a broad range of medical conditions.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
