1. The Challenge of Measuring Regime Effectiveness International organizations and regimes are established in order to perform a particular function or achieve a certain goal. One of the basic questions to be asked about these institutions is therefore how effective they are in delivering what they were established and designed to achieve. To answer this(More)
Membrane envelopment and budding of negative strand RNA viruses (NSVs) is mainly driven by viral matrix proteins (M). In addition, several M proteins are also known to be involved in host cell manipulation. Knowledge about the cellular targets and detailed molecular mechanisms, however, is poor for many M proteins. For instance, Nipah Virus (NiV) M protein(More)
Rabies virus (RABV) is a neurotropic virus that depends on long distance axonal transport in order to reach the central nervous system (CNS). The strategy RABV uses to hijack the cellular transport machinery is still not clear. It is thought that RABV interacts with membrane receptors in order to internalize and exploit the endosomal trafficking pathway,(More)
In order to fabricate highly efficient heterojunction solar cells a very thin (d<6 nm), but well passivating intrinsic a-Si:H film is needed as buffer layer between the crystalline silicon (c-Si) base and the doped a-Si:H emitter layer. In this work amorphous silicon films deposited by plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition at low temperatures (T dep(More)
UNLABELLED Rabies virus (RABV) spread is widely accepted to occur only by retrograde axonal transport. However, examples of anterograde RABV spread in peripheral neurons such as dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons indicated a possible bidirectional transport by an uncharacterized mechanism. Here, we analyzed the axonal transport of fluorescence-labeled RABV(More)
