95-19 and U(S)11c119.3 are BHK(TK-)-derived cell lines that are highly resistant to postattachment entry of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and HSV-2 but not to later steps in single-step replication. The resistance properties of these two cell types are not identical. U(S)11c119.3 cells are fully susceptible to pseudorabies virus (PRV), as shown by(More)
The rapid spread of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) in mucosal epithelia and neuronal tissue depends primarily on the ability of the virus to navigate within polarized cells and the tissues they constitute. To understand HSV entry and the spread of virus across cell junctions, we have previously characterized a human keratinocyte cell line, HaCaT. These(More)
Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) glycoprotein D (gD) is an essential component of the entry apparatus that is responsible for viral penetration and subsequent cell-cell spread. To test the hypothesis that gD may serve distinguishable functions in entry of free virus and cell-cell spread, mutants were selected for growth on U(S)11cl19.3 cells, which are(More)
The catalytic behavior of zeolite catalysts for the ammonia-based selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of nitrogen oxides (NOX) depends strongly on the type of zeolite material. An essential precondition for SCR is a previous ammonia gas adsorption that occurs on acidic sites of the zeolite. In order to understand and develop SCR active materials, it is(More)
Zeolites have been found to be promising sensor materials for a variety of gas molecules such as NH₃, NOx, hydrocarbons, etc. The sensing effect results from the interaction of the adsorbed gas molecules with mobile cations, which are non-covalently bound to the zeolite lattice. The mobility of the cations can be accessed by electrical low-frequency (LF;(More)
A very compact, but quite lightweight digital, triaxial ocean—bottom seismorneter has been developed to study ELF-acoustics (1 to 100 Hz) in shallow water by mounting three active, non orientation-privileged 1-Hz geophones in a flat container together with a compass, two tilt-meters, a thermistor, and the pertinent AID electronics. Each geo-acoustic channel(More)
