A block normal mode (BNM) algorithm, originally proposed by Tama et al., (Proteins Struct. Func. Genet. 41:1-7, 2000) was implemented into the simulation program CHARMM. The BNM approach projects the hessian matrix into local translation/rotation basis vectors and, therefore, dramatically reduces the size of the matrix involved in diagonalization. In the(More)
Microbial production can be advantageous over the extraction of phytoterpenoids from natural plant sources, but it remains challenging to rationally and rapidly access efficient pathway variants. Previous engineering attempts mainly focused on the mevalonic acid (MVA) or methyl-d-erythritol phosphate (MEP) pathways responsible for the generation of(More)
Immunoglobulins (Igs) are found thus far only to be produced by differentiated B lymphocytes. By immunohistochemistry analysis, in situ hybridization, and laser capture microdissection-assisted single-cell PCR, we demonstrate that human cancers of epithelial origin, including carcinomas of breast, colon, liver, lung, established epithelial cancer lines, as(More)
[1] A two-moment bulk microphysical scheme has been implemented into the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model to investigate the aerosol-cloud interaction. The microphysical scheme calculates the mass mixing ratios and number concentrations of aerosols and five types of hydrometeors and accounts for various cloud processes including warm and mixed(More)
[1] Simulations of fine particulate matter (PM 2.5) during an eight-day episode (24 to 31 August 2000) is conducted in association with the 2000 Texas Air Quality Study (TexAQS 2000) and the Houston Supersite Project using the EPA's Models-3 Community Multiscale Air Quality model (CMAQ). The mass concentrations of PM 2.5 and major chemical constituents(More)
Alcohol dehydrogenases (ADHs) are oxidoreductases catalyzing the reversible oxidation of alcohols to corresponding aldehydes or ketones accompanied by nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP) as coenzyme. ADHs attract major scientific and industrial interest for the evolutionary perspectives, afforded by(More)
To investigate whether Bombyx mori immunized with Bacillus subtilis spore displaying GP64 escape from the B. mori nucleopolyhedrovirus (BmNPV) attack, a recombinant integrative plasmid named pJS700-GP64 was constructed, which carries a recombinant cotC-Gp64 gene under the control of the cotC promoter. In this study, pJS700-GP64 was transformed into B.(More)
Human serum albumin (HSA) is the major protein component of human plasma. To date, HSA for clinical uses is mostly produced by fractionation of human whole blood, which is accompanied by a lot of limitations. To obtain long-term bioactive albumin, we used hsa as a foreign gene and constructed a recombinant plasmid pJS700-HSA which carries a recombinant gene(More)
