Temperature-depth recorders (TDRs) were attached to pelagic longline gear in the Hawaii-based commercial fishery to obtain actual fishing depths and to test the accuracy of catenary algorithms for predicting fishing depths. Swordfish gear was set shallow by typically deploying four hooks between successive floats. The observed depth of the settled deepest(More)
Hepatitis delta virus (HDV) packaging requires prenylation of the HDV large protein (p27), as well as a direct protein-protein interaction between HDV proteins and hepatitis B virus (HBV) envelope protein domains. To investigate this interaction, we have analysed the binding capacity of baculovirus-expressed delta p24 and p27 proteins to synthetic peptides(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Trachoma is a sight-threatening process triggered by the infection of the conjunctiva with Chlamydiae. Blindness associated with trachoma was reported in Sahelian areas of Cameroon. However, data on the prevalence of this neglected infection in the Far North Region are not available. The aim of this study was a) to assess clinical(More)
Hepatitis delta antigen (HDAg), the only protein encoded by the hepatitis delta virus (HDV), binds specifically genomic and antigenomic strands of the HDV RNA. In a previous study, three recombinant HDAg subdomains were synthesized, covering residues 11 to 78, 79 to 163 and 164 to 212, and only the middle domain was shown to be responsible for the binding(More)
