HIV-1 release is mediated through two motifs in the p6 region of Gag, PTAP and LYPX(n)L, which recruit cellular proteins Tsg101 and Alix, respectively. The Nucleocapsid region of Gag (NC), which binds the Bro1 domain of Alix, also plays an important role in HIV-1 release, but the underlying mechanism remains unclear. Here we show that the first 202 residues(More)
Energy Dispersive X-ray (EDX) microanalysis is a technique used for identification of the elemental composition of a specimen. The detection of nanoparticles in tissue is a common problem of biodistribution and toxicity studies. High-resolution transmission electron microscopy (TEM) can be employed to detect nanoparticles based on morphology; however, TEM(More)
The velocity fields generated by a static pair of magnets in free-surface electromagnetically forced flows are analyzed for different magnet attitudes, ionic currents, and brine depths. A wide range of laminar velocity fields is obtained despite the forcing simplicity. The velocity fields are classified according to their temporal mean flow topology, which(More)
