Our goal was to analyze the changes in morphology and physiological function (phagocytosis, migratory capabilities, humoral and cellular response, and nitric oxide secretion) of murine macrophages after labeling with a clinically used superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO), ferucarbotran. In SPIO-treated macrophages, nanoparticles were taken up in the(More)
The purpose of this work was to evaluate the efficacy of labeling human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) by ionic superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) without a transfection agent and verifying its capability to be detected with clinical 1.5 T magnetic resonance (MR) at the single-cell level. Human hMSCs were incubated for 24 h with an ionic SPIO,(More)
The X-ray crystallographic structure of HIV-1 capsid protein suggests that the dimer interface of the dimerization domain is mainly formed from a putative alpha-helix structure of 14 amino acids (Gag residues 311-324) and lies directly C-terminal to the capsid major homology region. We found that a deletion mutation in the alpha-helix drastically reduces(More)
