Many studies are currently investigating the development of safe and effective vaccines to prevent various infectious diseases. Multiple antigen-presenting peptide vaccine systems have been developed to avoid the adverse effects associated with conventional vaccines (i.e., live-attenuated, killed or inactivated pathogens), carrier proteins and cytotoxic(More)
We previously reported that anti-amyloid-beta (Aβ) single-chain antibody (scFv59) brain delivery via recombinant adeno-associated virus (rAAV) was effective in reducing cerebral Aβ load in an Alzheimer’s disease (AD) mouse model without inducing inflammation. Here, we investigated the prophylactic effects and mechanism of a muscle-directed gene therapy(More)
Generally, small peptides by themselves are weak to induce antibody responses. Toll-like receptor (TLR) ligands are attractive candidates of vaccine adjuvants to improve their antigenicity. The covalent conjugation of TLR ligands with antigens to produce self-adjuvanting peptide vaccine is a promising approach. Based on the structure of TLR7/8 ligands, a(More)
The title compound, C6H12O5, was crystallized from an aqueous solution of 6-de-oxy-l-psicose (6-de-oxy-l-allulose, (3S,4S,5S)-1,3,4,5-tetra-hydroxy-hexan-2-one), and the mol-ecule was confirmed as α-furan-ose with a (3) T 4 (or E 4) conformation, which is a predominant tautomer in solution. This five-membered furan-ose ring structure is the second example(More)
This paper shows several approaches for NTCIR-11 Spo-kenQuery&Doc [1]. This paper proposes several schemes to use word co-occurrence information for spoken document retrieval. Automatic transcriptions of spoken documents usually contain mis-recognized words, making the performance of spoken document retrieval signicantly decrease. The cosine similarity to(More)
