The 5'-cap structure is a distinct feature of eukaryotic mRNAs, and eukaryotic viruses generally modify the 5'-end of viral RNAs to mimic cellular mRNA structure, which is important for RNA stability, protein translation and viral immune escape. SARS coronavirus (SARS-CoV) encodes two S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAM)-dependent methyltransferases (MTase) which(More)
Background. The risk of atherosclerosis is elevated in abnormal lipid metabolism and circadian rhythm disorder. We investigated whether abnormal lighting condition would have influenced the circadian expression of clock genes and clock-controlled lipid metabolism-related genes in ApoE-KO mice. Methods. A mouse model of atherosclerosis with circadian clock(More)
A highly efficient recognition phenomenon was observed between alkoxylated arylene-ethynylene macrocycles bearing identical side chains but different core size, which is based on van der Waals interactions between alkoxy chains. The ratio of both molecules and the environment of each molecule have been statistically analyzed to quantify the recognition(More)
