The critical role that antibody responses to the V3 loop epitope play in human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) neutralization has caused this peptide to be used in many HIV-1 vaccine candidates. To enhance cross-reactivity toward several V3 sequences, a database of 50 peptides of the V3 region from HIV-1 subtype A was used to design both a consensus(More)
A random hexapeptide library (one-bead-one-compound), containing sixteen amino acids (16(6) different sequences) was synthesized on a Tentagel resin previously modified with a dipeptide linker (Asp-Pro). This peptide bond is highly susceptible to cleavage under mild acidic conditions in a salt-free solution prepared with H(2)(16)O/H(2)(18)O (60/40% v/v). In(More)
Recombinant virus-like particles (VLP) antigenically similar to rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV) were recently expressed at high levels inside Pichia pastoris cells. Based on the potential of RHDV VLP as platform for diverse vaccination purposes we undertook the design, development and scale-up of a production process. Conformational and stability(More)
Current strategies to control cattle ticks use integrated control programs (ICP) that include vaccination. Reduction in the use of chemicals and in the cost of tick control, the delay or elimination of acaricide resistance and the decreasing of environmental pollution are the advantages of using these programs. This integrated program is potentially(More)
Growth hormone-releasing peptide 6 (GHRP-6, His-(DTrp)-Ala-Trp-(DPhe)-Lys-NH₂, MW=872.44 Da) is a potent growth hormone secretagogue that exhibits a cytoprotective effect, maintaining tissue viability during acute ischemia/reperfusion episodes in different organs like small bowel, liver and kidneys. In the present work a quantitative method to analyze(More)
GHRP-6 is a growth hormone secretagogue that also enhances tissue viability in different organs. In the present work, we studied the pharmacokinetics of this short therapeutic hexapeptide (His-(D-Trp)-Ala-Trp-(D-Phe)-Lys-NH(2,) MW=872.44 Da) in nine male healthy volunteers after a single intravenous bolus administration of 100, 200 and 400 μg/kg of body(More)
To date, many technologies have been developed to increase efficiency in aquaculture, but very few successful biotechnology molecules have arrived on the market. In this context, marine biotechnology has an opportunity to develop products to improve the output of fish in aquaculture. Published in vivo studies on the action of the pituitary adenylate(More)
To be effective, vaccines against the highly variable HIV-1 must elicit antibodies to a huge number of clinical isolates. For this purpose, new strategies to overcome this variability are needed. We previously reported a useful immunogenic strategy which consists of conjugating multiple antigen peptides (MAPs) to HBsAg. This vaccine candidate reduces the(More)
