Using reverse genetics, we generated a recombinant low-pathogenic LaSota strain Newcastle disease virus (NDV) expressing the glycoprotein (GP) of Ebola virus (EBOV), designated rLa-EBOVGP, and evaluated its biological characteristic in vivo and in vitro. The introduction and expression of the EBOV GP gene did not increase the virulence of the NDV vector in(More)
Humans are remarkable at rapidly learning regularities through experience from a dynamic environment. For example, long-lasting memories are formed even for auditory noise patterns after short, repeated exposure in an unsupervised manner. Although animal neurophysiological and human studies demonstrate adaptive cortical plasticity after sensory learning and(More)
Neuronal oscillations are ubiquitous in the brain and contribute to perception and attention. However, most associated evidence derives from post hoc correlations between brain dynamics and behavior. Although a few recent studies demonstrate rhythms in behavior, it remains largely unknown whether behavioral performances manifest spectrotemporal dynamics in(More)
Ecdysone receptor and retinoid X receptor are key regulators in molting. Here, full length ecdysone receptor (PcEcR) and retinoid X receptor (PcRXR) cDNAs from Procambarus clarkii were cloned. Full length cDNA of PcEcR has 2500 bp, encoding 576 amino acid proteins, and full length cDNA of PcRXR has 2593 bp, in which a 15 bp and a 204 bp insert/deletion(More)
Osteopontin (OPN) is a phosphorylated glycoprotein that plays a critical role in the invasion of osteosarcoma (OS), the most common primary malignant bone tumor. Since microRNAs (miRNAs) have been well documented as key players in the tumorigenesis, cancer cell growth, and metastases, determination of the involved miRNAs that may regulate OPN-mediated OS(More)
—In this paper, new methods to improve the encoding of connectivity and geometry of the topological surgery scheme are proposed. In connectivity compression, after obtaining the vertex and triangle spanning trees by decomposing a three-dimensional object, bits are adaptively allocated to each run of two spanning trees on a threshold basis. The threshold is(More)
