Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is known to infect B cells and epithelial cells. We and others have shown that EBV can also infect a subset of thymocytes. Infection of thymocytes was accompanied by the appearance of linear EBV genome within 8 hr of infection. Circularization of the EBV genome was not detected. This is in contrast to the infection in B cells where(More)
Infection of B lymphocytes and epithelial tissue by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is associated with malignancy and autoimmunity. The cellular receptor for EBV has been identified as CD21 (CR2). A molecule, which is biochemically and immunologically similar to B-cell CD21, has been identified on a subpopulation of immature thymocytes, suggesting a role for this(More)
PURPOSE Energy discriminating, photon-counting detectors (PCDs) are an emerging technology for computed tomography (CT) with various potential benefits for clinical CT. The photon energies measured by PCDs can be distorted due to the interactions of a photon with the detector and the interaction of multiple coincident photons. These effects result in(More)
The discovery of EBV in certain T cell malignancies and the expression of the EBV receptor, CR2/CD21, on a population of immature thymocytes, T lymphoblastoid cell lines, and childhood acute T lymphoblastic leukemia cells suggested that EBV-receptor interactions on T cells may be of importance. We have shown that, within the thymus, a population of large,(More)
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems have received well-deserved attention from both the industry and the research communities, yet the usability of these systems remains a challenge. This paper proposes a model of the usability of ERP systems based on collaboration theory. In this model, Commitment to Joint Activity (CJA), Mutual Responsiveness (MR),(More)
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems have become essential in industry, yet the potential value created through system use can be illusive due to poor usability. Extensive interviews with users revealed that the underlying complexity of these systems manifests itself in unintuitive interfaces that are challenging to use. Given the lack of progress(More)
The MET tyrosine kinase has been identified as a susceptibility gene in patients with autism spectrum disorders. MET is expressed in the forebrain during prenatal and postnatal development. After birth, MET participates in dendritic outgrowth and circuit formation. Alterations in neuronal development, particularly in the cerebral cortex, may contribute to(More)
Consistent with its proposed status as an early branching eukaryote, Giardia has the most divergent actin of any eukaryote and lacks core actin regulators. Although conserved actin-binding proteins are missing from Giardia, its actin is utilized similarly to that of other eukaryotes and functions in core cellular processes such as cellular organization,(More)
