The autophagy response induced by HSV-1 infection is antagonized by the Beclin-binding domain (BBD). The purpose of this study was to determine if lack of the BBD affects viral spread and immune response in the eyes and brain. Our results showed that lack of the BBD increases autophagy response and activation of NLRP3 inflammasome, which in turn induces a(More)
PURPOSE Extensive death of uninfected bystander neuronal cells is an important component of the pathogenesis of cytomegalovirus retinitis. Our previous results have shown that caspase 3-dependent and -independent pathways are involved in death of uninfected bystander cells during murine cytomegalovirus (MCMV) retinitis and also that Bcl-2, an important(More)
PURPOSE Previous studies have demonstrated that autophagy is involved in the pathogenesis of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infection. However, whether autophagy is regulated by murine cytomegalovirus (MCMV) infection has not yet been investigated. The purpose of these studies was to determine how autophagy is affected by MCMV infection of the retinal pigment(More)
Purpose Severing corneal nerves during corneal transplantation does not affect first corneal transplants, but abolishes immune privilege of subsequent corneal allografts. This abrogation of immune privilege is attributable to the disabling of T regulatory cells (T regs) induced by corneal transplantation. The goal of this study was to determine if severing(More)
The conception of universal combinatorial coding is proposed. Relations exist more or less in many coding methods. It means that a kind of universal coding method is objectively existent. It can be a bridge connecting many coding methods. Universal combinatorial coding is lossless and it is based on the combinatorics theory. The combinational and exhaustive(More)
LPIN2 is one of the members of the Lipin family, which acts as a phosphatidate phosphatase enzyme. In this study, we identified the cDNA sequence and exonic variants of chicken LPIN2, and evaluated its spatio-temporal expression patterns. It indicated that chicken LPIN2 cDNA contained a 2,664-bp open reading frame flanked by a 176-bp 5′ untranslated region(More)
PURPOSE Retinitis induced by both human and murine cytomegaloviruses following immunosuppression is characterized by progressive loss of retinal architecture, due to necrosis of virus-infected cells as well as widespread apoptosis of uninfected bystander cells. Because small inhibitory RNA molecules (siRNA) can reduce murine cytomegalovirus (MCMV) gene(More)
In the title salt, C(20)H(20)N(6) (2+)·2ClO(4) (-), the cation is disposed about a center of symmetry at the mid-point of the N=N bond. The 1,8-naphthyridine systems are planar and the ten atoms have a mean deviation of 0.01 Å from the least-squares plane. The two planar 1,8-naphthyridine units are parallel but extend in opposite directions from the diazene(More)
