Curdlan sulfate (CRDS), a sulfated 1→3-β-D glucan, previously shown to be a potent HIV entry inhibitor, is characterized in this study as a potent inhibitor of the Dengue virus (DENV). CRDS was identified by in silico blind docking studies to exhibit binding potential to the envelope (E) protein of the DENV. CRDS was shown to inhibit the DENV replication(More)
In transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE) pathogenesis the cellular prion protein (PrP(C)) is converted into its pathogenic PrP(Sc) isoform. Prion protein gene (Prnp) deficient mice (PrP(0/0)) are resistant to PrP(Sc) infection, but following reconstitution of Prnp they regain their susceptibility to infection. Therefore, it is challenging to(More)
Because of their high antigen specificity and metabolic stability, genetically engineered human monoclonal antibodies are on the way to becoming one of the most promising medical diagnostics and therapeutics. In order to establish an in vitro system capable of producing such biosimilar antibodies, we used human constant chain sequences to design the novel(More)
