BACKGROUND Fall-related injuries are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in the older population. Summary information about counter-measures that successfully address the risk factors for fall-related injuries in research settings has been widely disseminated. However, less available is evidence-based information about successful roll-out of(More)
The immunogenic properties of an E1-deleted, human adenovirus type 5 (Ad5) vaccine virus with activity against rabies were examined in mice, foxes and dogs using different routes of administration. NMRI mice received 10(5.8), 10(5.3), 10(4.3), 10(3.3) and 10(2.3) TCID(50) by peroral or intramuscular (i.m.) administration. Furthermore, six mice received(More)
Numerous fundamental biological processes involve the NFkappaB family of transcription factors. The mechanisms by which this family of proteins is regulated are therefore of widespread importance. In most cells, NFkappaB is bound to inhibitory IkappaB proteins and sequestered in the cytoplasm. NFkappaB-inducing signals result in activation of a large(More)
The basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) family of transcription factors is essential for numerous developmental and growth control processes. The regulation of bHLH proteins occurs at many levels, including tissue specific expression, differential oligomerization and DNA binding specificities, interaction with negatively acting HLH proteins and post-translational(More)
The NFkappaB family of transcription factors is regulated by inhibitory IkappaB proteins. A diversity of stimuli leads to the phosphorylation and subsequent degradation of IkappaB, releasing NFkappaB to act on its target genes. Calmodulin (CaM) is a key regulator of numerous cellular processes and is the predominant intracellular receptor for Ca2+ signals.(More)
The NF-kappa B/Rel family of transcription factors participates in the control of a wide array of genes, including genes involved in embryonic development and regulation of immune, inflammation, and stress responses. In most cells, inhibitory I kappa B proteins sequester NF-kappa B/Rel in the cytoplasm. Cellular stimulation results in the degradation of I(More)
The latent membrane protein 1 (LMP1) of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is required for EBV-induced immortalization of human B cells and causes tumorigenic transformation of cell lines. LMP1 expression induces phenotypic changes resembling B cell activation, such as cell size increase and up-regulation of cell surface activation markers. LMP1 contains two domains(More)
