Moraines at Isfallsglaciren were investigated using ground penetrating radar to document the internal structural characteristics of the landform assemblage.

The moraine is demonstrated to contain both ice rich and debris rich zones, reflecting a complex depositional history and a polygenetic origin.

Various studies have indicated that MTA1 is essential for the transformation of cells and hence targeting it is unlikely to generate antigen loss variants.
