Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), an oncogenic human herpesvirus, induces cell proliferation after infection of resting B lymphocytes, its reservoir in vivo. The viral latent proteins are necessary for permanent B cell growth, but it is unknown whether they are sufficient. EBV was recently found to encode microRNAs (miRNAs) that are expressed in infected B cells(More)
The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) alkaline exonuclease BGLF5 has previously been recognized to contribute to immune evasion by downregulating production of HLA molecules during virus replication. We have constructed a BGLF5-null virus mutant to determine BGLF5's functions during EBV viral replication. Quantification of virus production in permissive 293 cells(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of victim gender, and observer gender on the tendency to attribute responsibility for extrafamilial child sexual abuse to the victim and the nonoffending parents. METHOD A 2 (Victim Age) x 2 (Victim Gender) x 2 (Observer Gender) between-subjects design was employed. Undergraduate students(More)
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) transforms B lymphocytes through the expression of the latent viral proteins EBNA and latent membrane protein (LMP). Recently, it has become apparent that microRNAs (miRNAs) also contribute to EBV's oncogenic properties; recombinant EBVs that lack the BHRF1 miRNA cluster display a reduced ability to transform B lymphocytes in vitro.(More)
To assess the relationship betweenVerticilliun dahliae toxin and the stunting effect in V.dahliae-infected plants, an assay was developed based on the inhibition of elongation of cultured tomato roots. The toxin inhibited growth of roots and development of secondary roots in disease-susceptible plants, tomato cv. ’Hosen-Eilon’(veve) and eggplant, whereas(More)
One hundred and eight pregnant women, most of their husbands and a comparison group of non-expectant parents were recruited for a long-term study which involved responding to a 55-item Symptom Checklist (SCL) and the Beck Depression Inventory three times during pregnancy and once during the first postpartum month. Responses to the SCL were factor analysed,(More)

Responses of 108 women in the first 5 months of pregnancy were compared to those given by expectant fathers, nonpregnant women, and nonexpectant men on two measures: a 55-item symptom checklist and the Beck Depression Inventory. Responses to the symptom checklist were factor analyzed to produce six factors accounting for 40.5% of the total variance. On only(More)
Data were collected from 138 expectant couples at three points during pregnancy and at one month postpartum with aid of a standardized questionnaire including demographic information, attitudes toward childbearing and physical and emotional symptoms. These data have been analyzed in detail to predict women's experience of pregnancy.
