The pathogenic Yersinia species exhibit a primarily extracellular lifestyle through manipulation of host signaling pathways that regulate pro-inflammatory gene expression and cytokine release. To identify host genes that are targeted by Yersinia during the infection process, we performed an RNA interference (RNAi) screen based on recovery of host(More)
Picosecond infrared vibrational echo measurements from 60 to 300 K on CO bound to the active site of a mutant myoglobin, H93G(N-MeIm), are presented and compared to measurements on native myoglobin and on the mutant H64V. Although in H93G(N-MeIm) (the proximal histidine replaced by glycine, with exogenous N-methylimidazole in the proximal histidine pocket,(More)
This review captures the use of live cells as dynamic microlaboratories through implementation of labeled nanoparticles (nanosensors) that have both sensing and targeting functions. The addition of 2,4-ε-dinitrophenol-L-lysine (DNP) as a FcεRI targeting ligand and 4-mercaptopyridine (4-MPy) as a pH-sensing ligand enables spatial and temporal monitoring of(More)
