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)
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)
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)
In the title salt, C(19)H(20)N(6) (2+)·2ClO(4) (-), the two planar 1,8-naphthyridine systems are linked by a methyl-enediamine group with a dihedral angle of 60.6 (1)° between the two systems. The crystal structure involves extensive N-H⋯O and C-H⋯O hydrogen bonding.
