Dendritic cells (DCs) can initiate and shape host immune responses toward either immunity or tolerance by their effects on antigen-specific CD4(+) T cells. DC-asialoglycoprotein receptor (DC-ASGPR), a lectinlike receptor, is a known scavenger receptor. Here, we report that targeting antigens to human DCs via DC-ASGPR, but not lectin-like oxidized-LDL(More)
The fear responses to environmental threats play a fundamental role in survival. Little is known about the neural circuits specifically processing threat-relevant sensory information in the mammalian brain. We identified parvalbumin-positive (PV(+)) excitatory projection neurons in mouse superior colliculus (SC) as a key neuronal subtype for detecting(More)
—In this paper, we exploit a novel setting for Cognitive Radio (CR) networks to enable multiple operators to involve secondary users (SUs) as cooperative relays for their primary users. In return, SUs get an opportunity to access spare channels for their own data transmission. Initially, we assume that the CR network supports payment transfer. Then, we(More)
DNA-binding proteins are vital for the study of cellular processes. In recent genome engineering studies, the identification of proteins with certain functions has become increasingly important and needs to be performed rapidly and efficiently. In previous years, several approaches have been developed to improve the identification of DNA-binding proteins.(More)
Ebola viruses are the infectious agent causing the Ebola virus disease (EVD). They belong to the genus Ebolavirus of the Filoviridae family and have been categorized into five known species: Ebola virus (EBOV, formerly Zaire Ebola virus), Bundibugyo virus (BDBV), Sudan virus (SUDV), Taï Forest virus (TAFV), and Reston virus (RESTV). EBOV was first(More)
