The dengue virus NS5 RNA-dependent RNA polymerase has been detected in the nucleus of virus-infected mammalian cells. We demonstrate here for the first time using in vitro and in vivo assay systems that the 37-amino-acid linker interdomain of NS5 (residues 369 to 405) contains a nuclear localization sequence (NLS) which is capable of targeting(More)
The dengue virus RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, NS5, and the protease/helicase, NS3, are multidomain proteins that have been shown to interact both in vivo and in vitro. A hyperphosphorylated form of NS5 that does not interact with NS3 has been detected in the nuclei of virus-infected cells, presumably as the result of the action of a functional nuclear(More)
Our research is directed towards enhancing the understanding of the molecular biology of dengue virus replication with the ultimate goal being to develop novel antiviral strategies based on preventing critical inter- or intra-molecular interactions required for the normal virus life cycle. The viral RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (NS5) and the viral helicase(More)
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have shown great promise as high performance materials for adsorbing priority pollutants from water and wastewater. This study compared uptake of two contaminants of interest in drinking water treatment (atrazine and trichloroethylene) by nine different types of carbonaceous adsorbents: three different types of single walled carbon(More)
