RNA interference (RNAi) has recently shown promise as a mode of inhibition of slowly replicating viruses causing chronic diseases such as hepatitis C. To investigate whether RNAi is also feasible for rapidly growing RNA viruses such as alphaviruses, we tested the ability of expressed short hairpin RNAs (shRNAs) to inhibit the Semliki Forest virus (SFV), a(More)
In the evolving smart power systems (or smart grids), distributed generators (DG) and virtual power plants (VPP) have major roles in providing electric energy for microgrids. This paper studies the optimal operation of a VPP in a microgrid considering the uncertainties of the energy and fuel prices and managing the variance/risk of the VPP's profit with(More)
Fast locking PLL-based wide-band frequency synthesizers used in high performance RF transceivers often require multi-band voltage controlled oscillator (VCO). These types of frequency synthesizers employ both discrete and continuous tuning mechanisms to satisfy wide frequency range and low VCO tuning gain simultaneously. To facilitate discrete tuning(More)
Exposure of HL-60 promyelocytic leukemia cells to calcitriol results in a decrease in steady-state levels of c-myc mRNA and induces cellular differentiation. We have asked whether calcitriol has a direct effect on the transcription of the c-myc gene. 1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25-(OH)2D3) decreased RNA elongation in a nuclear run-off transcription assay by(More)
An Hinf1 associated restriction length polymorphism pattern is reported for the catalase gene of Hungarian normocatalasemic individuals and acatalasemic patients. The 2.4-kb pCAT 10 probe revealed 9 bands (2.1, 1.5, 1.2, 1.1, 0.9, 0.8, 0.6, 0.5 and 0.4 kb) with 9 distinct patterns for the controls. The same patterns were detected for the Hungarian(More)
