A fluorescence imaging system, based on using a cooled slow-scan CCD camera, has been developed for tracking receptors on the surfaces of living cells. The technique is applicable to receptors for particles such as lipoproteins and viruses that can be labeled with a few tens of fluorophores. The positions of single particles in each image are determined to(More)
The mobility of cell surface MHC class I molecules on HeLa cells was measured by fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP). The probe used for these studies was the phycobiliprotein R-phycoerythrin coupled to Fab fragments of a monoclonal antibody specific for human monomorphic MHC class I molecules. It was found that the recovery curves could be(More)
Fluorescently labeled low density lipoproteins (LDL) and influenza virus particles were bound to the surface of human fibroblasts and imaged with a cooled slow-scan CCD camera attached to a fluorescence microscope. Particles were also imaged after attachment to polylysine-coated microscope slides. The digital images were analyzed by fitting data points in(More)
The interests of users of financial statements are, in theory, paramount to accounting standard-setters. However, there is a dearth of research into users’ participation in, and influence on, the process of setting accounting standards. The enhanced status now accorded to the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) offers the opportunity to examine(More)
The dominant sugar in the body fluids of many insects is not glucose, the sugar of the vertebrates, but trehalose. In a step toward a cell that would operate in insects, we describe here a trehalose electrooxidizing anode. The novel component of the anode is its engineered, trehalose oxidation catalyzing, FAD-glucose-3-dehydrogenase (G3DH). Screening for(More)
