The L2 minor capsid proteins enter the nucleus twice during viral infection: in the initial phase after virion disassembly and in the productive phase when, together with the L1 major capsid proteins, they assemble the replicated viral DNA into virions. In this study we investigated the interactions between the L2 protein of high-risk human papillomavirus(More)
Analysis of the interactions of low-risk human papillomavirus type 11 (HPV11) L2 with karyopherin beta (Kap beta) nuclear import receptors revealed that L2 interacted with Kap beta 1, Kap beta 2, and Kap beta 3 and formed a complex with the Kap alpha 2 beta 1 heterodimer. HPV11 L2 contains two nuclear localization signals (NLSs)-in the N terminus and the C(More)
AIMS Four experiments were conducted to assess the acute impact of context and exposure to responsible drinking messages (RDMs) on attentional allocation and drinking behaviour of younger drinkers and to explore the utility of lab-based methods for the evaluation of such materials. METHODS A simulated bar environment was used to examine the impact of(More)
The nephrotoxicity of gentamicin and amikacin was compared during presumed sepsis in 107 premature neonates. To examine the possibility that nephrotoxicity was directly associated with the clinical conditions of "sepsis," a control group of 26 chloramphenicol-treated newborns was also studied. Two markers of proximal renal tubular injury,(More)
In order to optimize gentamicin (G) therapy we studied G pharmacokinetics in 48 preterm infants (gest. age 31.6 +/- 3.4, range 25-37 wk; birth weight 1.5 +/- 0.5 kg, range 0.7-2.5 kg). They received IV G twice daily (5.2 +/- 0.6 mg/kg/day). After at least 2 days of treatment trough and peak levels were measured for 2 successive doses. Trough levels were(More)
To evaluate the ability of a loading dose of chloramphenicol succinate to rapidly, achieve adequate serum concentrations of chloramphenicol, we compared two intravenously administered dosages of chloramphenicol succinate given to initiate treatment. Thirteen premature neonates received an initial dose of 12.5 mg/kg; 26 received a loading dose of 20 mg/kg.(More)
BACKGROUND Technology-based applications represent a promising method for providing efficacious, widely available interventions to substance abuse treatment patients. However, limited access to communication technology (i.e., mobile phones, computers, internet, and e-mail) could significantly impact the feasibility of these efforts, and little is known(More)
Injection of aminoglycosides into a filter chamber was compared with retrograde injection into i.v. tubing for delivery of intermittent drug dosages at low infusion rates in neonates. In 50 infants receiving gentamicin sulfate and 21 receiving amikacin sulfate for at least two days by retrograde i.v. infusion, peak and trough concentrations of the drugs(More)
