A measurement of the energy dependence of antineutrino disappearance at the Daya Bay reactor neutrino experiment is reported. Electron antineutrinos (ν¯(e)) from six 2.9  GW(th) reactors were detected with six detectors deployed in two near (effective baselines 512 and 561 m) and one far (1579 m) underground experimental halls. Using 217 days of data, 41(More)
We and others have previously reported that melanoma-specific, cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) define a minimum of six class I-presented peptide epitopes common to most HLA-A2+ melanomas. Here we show that three of these peptide epitopes are coordinately recognized by a CTL clone obtained by limiting dilution from the peripheral blood of an HLA-A2+ melanoma(More)
Human interleukin 10 (huIL-10) is a cytokine that regulates the synthesis of type 1 helper T cell derived cytokines such as gamma-interferon, interleukin 2, and tumor necrosis factor alpha. The potential immunosuppressive activities of huIL-10 suggest that this protein may be clinically useful for treating autoimmune diseases. Due to the potential clinical(More)
The nucleotide exchange process is one of the key activation steps regulating the ras protein. This report describes the development of potent, non-nucleotide, small organic inhibitors of the ras nucleotide exchange process. These inhibitors bind to the ras protein in a previously unidentified binding pocket, without displacing bound nucleotide. This report(More)
A search for light sterile neutrino mixing was performed with the first 217 days of data from the Daya Bay Reactor Antineutrino Experiment. The experiment's unique configuration of multiple baselines from six 2.9 GW(th) nuclear reactors to six antineutrino detectors deployed in two near (effective baselines 512 m and 561 m) and one far (1579 m) underground(More)
Electrospray and tandem mass spectrometry are used to characterize underivatized oligosaccharides that have been digested from asparagine side chains of glycoproteins. Oligosaccharides that contain sialic acids were detected with the best sensitivity in the negative-ion detection mode whereas those that do not contain sialic acid were detected with the best(More)
A novel mass spectrometry-based methodology using electrospray ionization (ESI) is described for the detection of protein-protein [interferon (IFN)-γ dimer] and protein-ligand [ras-guanosine diphosphate (GDP)] noncovalent interactions. The method utilizes ESI from aqueous solution at appropriate pH. The presence of the noncovalent complex of the IFN-γ dimer(More)
We report a new measurement of electron antineutrino disappearance using the fully constructed Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment. The final two of eight antineutrino detectors were installed in the summer of 2012. Including the 404 days of data collected from October 2012 to November 2013 resulted in a total exposure of 6.9×10^{5} GW_{th}  ton days, a(More)
The Daya Bay experiment has observed correlations between reactor core fuel evolution and changes in the reactor antineutrino flux and energy spectrum. Four antineutrino detectors in two experimental halls were used to identify 2.2 million inverse beta decays (IBDs) over 1230 days spanning multiple fuel cycles for each of six 2.9 GW_{th} reactor cores at(More)
On-line capillary electrophoresis (CE) separations are shown for a synthetic peptide mixture and a tryptic digest of human hemoglobin in an uncoated fused-silica capillary with detection using atmospheric pressure ionization mass spectrometry (API-MS). The CE system utilized a 1-m capillary column of either 75- or 100-microns I.D. These somewhat larger(More)
