Flow-cytometric isolation of human antibodies from a nonimmune Saccharomyces cerevisiae surface display library
A nonimmune library of 109 human antibody scFv fragments has been cloned and expressed on the surface of yeast, and nanomolar-affinity scFvs routinely obtained by magnetic bead screening andExpand

The relationship of MHC-peptide binding and T cell activation probed using chemically defined MHC class II oligomers.
A series of novel chemically defined soluble oligomers of the human MHC class II protein HLA-DR1 was constructed to probe the molecular requirements for initiation of T cell activation. MHC dimers,Expand

The impact of functional health literacy and acculturation on the oral health status of Somali refugees living in Massachusetts.
OBJECTIVES We assessed the impact of health literacy and acculturation on oral health status of Somali refugees in Massachusetts. METHODS Between December 2009 and June 2011, we surveyed 439 adultExpand

Antibodies specifically targeting a locally misfolded region of tumor associated EGFR
Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) is involved in stimulating the growth of many human tumors, but the success of therapeutic agents has been limited in part by interference from the EGFR onExpand

Measurements of translation initiation from all 64 codons in E. coli
Abstract Our understanding of translation underpins our capacity to engineer living systems. The canonical start codon (AUG) and a few near-cognates (GUG, UUG) are considered as the ‘start codons’Expand
