Function and regulation of ras.
Toward a Shared Vision for Cancer Genomic Data.
The Genomic Data Commons will initially house raw genomic data and diagnostic, histologic, and clinical outcome data from National Cancer Institute–funded projects. A harmonization process will alignExpand
Papillomavirus L1 major capsid protein self-assembles into virus-like particles that are highly immunogenic.
Results indicate that L1 protein has the intrinsic capacity to assemble into empty capsid-like structures whose immunogenicity is similar to infectious virions. Expand
E‐cadherin‐mediated adhesion inhibits ligand‐dependent activation of diverse receptor tyrosine kinases
It is reported that E‐cadherin can negatively regulate, in an adhesion‐dependent manner, the ligand‐dependent activation of divergent classes of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs), by inhibiting their ligand-dependent activation in association with decreases in receptor mobility and in ligand•binding affinity.

Carrageenan Is a Potent Inhibitor of Papillomavirus Infection
Comparison of a variety of compounds revealed that carrageenan, a type of sulfated polysaccharide extracted from red algae, is an extremely potent infection inhibitor for a broad range of sexually transmitted HPVs. Expand
Efficient Intracellular Assembly of Papillomaviral Vectors
The results suggest that the intracellular assembly of papillomavirus structural proteins around heterologous reporter plasmids is surprisingly promiscuous and may be driven primarily by a size discrimination mechanism. Expand
Cleavage of the papillomavirus minor capsid protein, L2, at a furin consensus site is necessary for infection
It is shown that this step depends on the site-specific enzymatic cleavage of the PV minor virion protein L2 at a consensus furin recognition site and is potentially a target for PV inhibition. Expand
Efficient self-assembly of human papillomavirus type 16 L1 and L1-L2 into virus-like particles
The ability to generate preparative amounts of HPV16 L1 and L1-L2 VLP may have implications for the development of a serological assay to detect anti-HPV16 virion immune responses to conformational epitopes and for immunoprophylaxis against HPV16 infection. Expand
Reactivity of human sera in a sensitive, high-throughput pseudovirus-based papillomavirus neutralization assay for HPV16 and HPV18.
The SEAP pseudovirus-based neutralization assay should be a practical method for quantifying potentially protective antibody responses in HPV natural history and prophylactic vaccine studies. Expand
Genital transmission of HPV in a mouse model is potentiated by nonoxynol-9 and inhibited by carrageenan
Development of a mouse model of cervicovaginal infection with HPV16 that recapitulates the establishment phase of papillomavirus infection is reported, and carrageenan, a polysaccharide present in some vaginal lubricants, prevented infection even in the presence of N-9, suggesting that carrageinan might serve as an effective topical HPV microbicide.
