Reactivation of Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KHSV; also known as Human herpesvirus (HHV)-8) from latency is associated with progression to disease. The primary experimental models for studying KSHV reactivation are B lymphocyte cell lines derived from patients with primary effusion lymphoma (PEL). PEL models have remained essential tools for(More)
In our previous work [1], we presented a study of using performance escalation to automatic detect Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) types of attacks. We propose to enhance the work of security threat detection by using mobile phones as the detector to identify outliers of normal traffic patterns as threats. The mobile solution makes detection portable(More)
Leukotoxin (LtxA) is a protein secreted from the oral bacterium Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans. LtxA binds to the β2 integrin lymphocyte-associated function antigen-1 (LFA-1) on human white blood cells (WBCs), resulting in cell death. LtxA is currently under investigation as a novel therapy (Leukothera(®)) for treating hematologic malignancies and(More)
