We have previously identified prenylated Rab acceptor 1 (PRA1) as a novel cellular interacting partner for Epstein-Barr virus-encoded oncoprotein, latent membrane protein 1 (LMP1). The intracellular trafficking and full signaling of LMP1 requires its interaction with PRA1. To further explore the role of PRA1 in Epstein-Barr virus-associated nasopharyngeal(More)
Abstractβ-thalassemia is a common monogenic disease caused by mutations in the human β-globin gene (HBB), many of which are differentially represented in human subpopulations stratified by ethnicity. This study describes an efficient and highly accurate method to screen for the eight most-common disease-causing mutations, covering more than 98% of HBB(More)
BACKGROUND Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a common inherited and fatal neuromuscular disease caused by deletions and/or mutations that lead to altered concentrations of proteins encoded by the survival motor neuron genes SMN1 and SMN2. Because of the high incidence (at least 1 in 10,000 live births and a carrier frequency of 1 in 35 to 1 in 50) and(More)
