Notes on the genus Frithia (Mesembryanthemaceae) and the descrip­ tion of a new species, E humilis, in South Africa
TLDR
The two window-leaved species of Frithia N.E.Br (Mesembryanthemaceae), formerly thought to be a monotypic genus, has been found to comprise two species, and morphological differences between the roots, leaves, flowers, pollen, capsules and seeds are discussed. Expand
Optimization of viral protein ratios for production of rAAV serotype 5 in the baculovirus system
TLDR
A library of rationally designed rAAV serotype 5 variants with modulations in the translation-initiation region of VP1 and investigated the potency of the resulting vectors found that the initiation strength at the VP1 translational start had downstream effects on the VP2/VP3 ratio. Expand
Mesenchymal stem cells modulate release of matrix proteins from tendon surfaces in vitro: a potential beneficial therapeutic effect.
TLDR
The source of cell is an important consideration for cell therapy and fibroblasts from skin and tendon appeared less capable of preventing the release of matrix proteins than mesenchymal stems cells. Expand

PhP.B Enhanced Adeno-Associated Virus Mediated-Expression Following Systemic Delivery or Direct Brain Administration
TLDR
The challenge in developing a vector that can be delivered noninvasively while achieving a transduction level similar to that of direct administration of AAV5 is illustrated by a humanized AAV9-PhP.B. Expand
