Histological appearances of the tissue fragments obtained by cavitron ultrasonic surgical aspirator (CUSA) were studied in 25 cases to determine whether the aspirated tissue could be used for diagnosis. It was found that a definite diagnosis could be made on the tissue removed by this method.
BACKGROUND The genome of retroviruses, including HIV-1, is packaged as two homologous (+) strand RNA molecules, noncovalently associated close to their 5'-end in a region called dimer linkage structure (DLS). Retroviral HIV-1 genomic RNAs dimerize through complex interactions between dimerization initiation sites (DIS) within the (5'-UTR). Dimer formation… (More)
