We have explored the potential of using the apramycin resistance gene as a marker in mycobacterial gene transfer studies. Shuttle plasmids available for both electroporation and conjugation studies have been constructed, and we have successfully validated the use of the apramycin resistance gene as a component of cloning vectors for Mycobacterium smegmatis,(More)
Human parainfluenza virus type 3 (HPIV3) is a major respiratory pathogen in humans. Failure to induce immunological memory associated with HPIV3 infection has been attributed to inhibition of lymphocyte proliferation. We demonstrate that the inability of mixed lymphocytes to respond to virally infected antigen-presenting cells is due to an(More)
