A package of 38 low level subprograms for many of the basic operations of numerical linear algebra m presented. The package is intended to be used with Fortran. The operations m the package include dot product, elementary vector operation, Givens transformation, vector copy and swap, vector norm, vector scaling, and the determination of the index of the(More)
OspA (outer surface protein A) is an abundant immunogenic lipoprotein of the Lyme disease spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi. The crystal structure of a soluble recombinant form of OspA was solved in a complex with the Fab fragment of mouse monoclonal antibody 184.1 and refined to a resolution of 1.9 A. OspA has a repetitive antiparallel beta topology with an(More)
Two crystal forms of recombinant p26 capsid protein (CA) from the equine infectious anemia virus (EIAV) have in common an antiparallel four-helix bundle dimer interface between N-terminal domains (NTDs). The dimer interface provides a lenient scaffold to accommodate the wide sequence variation in these helices within lentivirus CA. Pairs of dimers weakly(More)

Outer surface protein C (OspC) is a major antigen on the surface of the Lyme disease spirochete, Borrelia burgdorferi, when it is being transmitted to humans. Crystal structures of OspC have been determined for strains HB19 and B31 to 1.8 and 2.5 A resolution, respectively. The three-dimensional structure is predominantly helical. This is in contrast to the(More)
Outer surface protein A (OspA) is a major lipoprotein of the Borrelia burgdorferi spirochete, the causative agent of Lyme disease. Vaccination with OspA generates an immune response that can prevent bacterial transmission to a mammalian host during the attachment of an infected tick. However, the protective capacity of immune sera cannot be predicted by(More)
The crystal structure of trp repressor tandemly bound in a 2:1 complex to a 16-base-pair palindromic DNA containing a central trp operator half-site has been determined and refined to 2.4 A resolution. Despite dramatically different DNA sequence contexts and crystallization conditions, the protein/DNA interface is essentially identical to that seen in the(More)
32 BLAS routines can be used to implement the preconditioning operation for several common preconditioners. It has also been shown that the eecient implementation of the Iterative BLAS kernels on vector computers often requires the use of assembly language. For those vector computers with a vector cache, assembly language can be used to reduce memory(More)
Tryptophan biosynthesis in Escherichia coli is regulated by the product of the trpR gene, the tryptophan (Trp) repressor. Trp aporepressor binds the corepressor, L-tryptophan, to form a holorepressor complex, which binds trp operator DNA tightly, and inhibits transcription of the tryptophan biosynthetic operon. The conservation of trp operator sequences(More)
