EBV and KSHV are both gamma-herpesviruses which express multiple viral microRNAs. Various methods have been used to investigate the functions of these microRNAs, largely through identification of microRNA target genes. Surprisingly, these related viruses do not share significant sequence homology in their microRNAs. A number of reports have described(More)
Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) is caused by infection with Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV). The virus expresses unique microRNAs (miRNAs), but the targets and functions of these miRNAs are not completely understood. In order to identify human targets of viral miRNAs, we measured protein expression changes caused by multiple KSHV miRNAs using pulsed(More)
Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) is characterized by highly vascularized spindle-cell tumors induced after infection of endothelial cells by Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV). In KS tumors, KSHV expresses only a few latent proteins together with 12 pre-microRNAs. Previous microarray and proteomic studies predicted that multiple splice variants of the(More)
We demonstrate the combination of coherent anti-Stoke Raman scattering (CARS) with near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM) for chemically selective imaging via intrinsic vibrational resonances with spatial resolution below the diffraction limit. Femtosecond, near-IR pulses are used to produce CARS signals from human hepatocytes, and by tuning the CARS(More)
We present experimentally observed molecular adsorbate coverages (e.g., O(H), OOH and HOOH) on real operating dealloyed bimetallic PtMx (M = Ni or Co) catalysts under oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) conditions obtained using X-ray absorption near edge spectroscopy (XANES). The results reveal a complex Sabatier catalysis behavior and indicate the active ORR(More)
Kaposi's sarcoma associated herpesvirus (KSHV) causes several tumors, including primary effusion lymphoma (PEL) and Kaposi's sarcoma (KS). Cellular and viral microRNAs (miRNAs) have been shown to play important roles in regulating gene expression. A better knowledge of the miRNA-mediated pathways affected by KSHV infection is therefore important for(More)
The development of active and durable catalysts with reduced platinum content is essential for fuel cell commercialization. Herein we report that the dealloyed PtCo/HSC and PtCo 3 /HSC nanoparticle (NP) catalysts exhibit the same levels of enhancement in oxygen reduction activity (∼4-fold) and durability over pure Pt/C NPs. Surprisingly, ex situ high-angle(More)
Kaposi sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) causes several tumors and hyperproliferative disorders. Hypoxia and hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs) activate latent and lytic KSHV genes, and several KSHV proteins increase the cellular levels of HIF. Here, we used RNA sequencing, qRT-PCR, Taqman assays, and pathway analysis to explore the miRNA and mRNA(More)
X-ray adsorption near edge structure (XANES) data at the Co or Ni K-edge, analyzed using the Δμ difference procedure, are reported for dealloyed PtCo x and PtNi x catalysts (six different catalysts at different stages of life). All catalysts meet the 2017 DOE beginning of life target Pt mass activity target (>0.44 A mgPt(-1)), but exhibit varying activities(More)
