A business's success depends on its ability to protect valuable business assets in an increasingly hostile environment. Protecting information requires a cost, not only in purchasing security components, but also in ensuring that those security components are properly managed. Role Based Access Control (RBAC) shows promise for making security administration(More)
In Alzheimer's disease, hyperphosphorylated tau is an integral part of the neurofibrillary tangles that form within neuronal cell bodies and fails to promote microtubule assembly. Dysregulation of the brain-specific tau protein kinase II is reported to play an important role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (Patrick, G. N., Zukerberg, L., Nikolic,(More)
Lunar Prospector gamma-ray spectrometer spectra along with counting rate maps of thorium, potassium, and iron delineate large compositional variations over the lunar surface. Thorium and potassium are highly concentrated in and around the nearside western maria and less so in the South Pole-Aitken basin. Counting rate maps of iron gamma-rays show a surface(More)
1. [35S]t-butylbicyclophosphorothionate (TBPS) is a high affinity ligand for the picrotoxin site of GABA(A) receptors. Here we examined TBPS binding to the cloned receptors made of alpha 1, alpha 3 or alpha 6 in combination with beta 2 or beta 2 and gamma 2 subunits, in the presence of GABA and several allosteric ligands (diazepam, methyl(More)
Human nerve growth factor (NGF) was cloned and engineered for expression in a baculovirus-infected Spodoptera frugiperda (SF-9) insect cell system. Culture supernatants contained 2-3 mg/L of recombinant human NGF. The human NGF produced by this system was purified to apparent homogeneity with a single-step affinity chromatography procedure using a(More)
Recently, recombinant baculoviruses have been used to show that expression of six herpes simplex virus type 1 genes results in the formation of capsid-like particles. We have applied cryoelectron microscopy and three-dimensional image reconstruction to establish their structural authenticity to a resolution of approximately 2.7 nm. By comparing capsids(More)
The herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) UL25 gene contains a 580-amino-acid open reading frame that codes for an essential protein. Previous studies have shown that the UL25 gene product is a virion component (M. A. Ali et al., Virology 216:278-283, 1996) involved in virus penetration and capsid assembly (C. Addison et al., Virology 138:246-259, 1984). In(More)
