Marek's disease virus, a herpesvirus, and avian leukosis virus, subgroup J, a retrovirus, are oncogenic viruses of poultry. Both viruses may infect the same flock, the same bird and the same cell. In a double-infected cell, the retroviral DNA can integrate into the cellular or the Marek's disease virus (MDV) genome. The retroviral long terminal repeat (LTR)(More)
Once metastatic, prostate cancer (CaP) treatment options are limited to androgen withdrawal. In this environment, the cells often develop an androgen independent state resulting in patient demise. It has been shown that during this transition, CaP cells transdifferentiate to neuroendocrine cells, which produce neuropeptides. These neuropeptides have a(More)
Gold catalysts supported on γ-Al2O3 (Au/γ-Al2O3) were prepared by deposition-precipitation of aqueous HAuCl4 and, alternatively, by deposition of Au(CH3)2(acac) from pentane solution. The samples were characterized by in situ XANES and temperature-programmed reduction and by their performance as CO oxidation catalysts at room temperature. The Au was found(More)
Marek's disease virus latent protein MEQ (MDV Eco Q) is abundantly expressed and consistently detected in MDV-induced tumors and cell lines. Deletion mutants were constructed to study the domain structure of MEQ. Four deletion mutants were obtained in the basic regions of MEQ, namely basic region 1 (ΔBR1), basic region 2 (ΔBR2), basic regions 1 and 2 (ΔBR1(More)
