The nucleotide sequence of Bacillus phage Nf gene E has been determined. Gene E codes for phage terminal protein which is the primer necessary for the initiation of DNA replication. The deduced amino acid sequence of Nf terminal protein is approximately 66% homologous with the terminal proteins of Bacillus phages PZA and luminal diameter 29, and shows(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Lysosomal Acid Lipase (LAL) deficiency is a rare metabolic storage disease, caused by a marked reduction in activity of LAL, which leads to accumulation of cholesteryl esters (CE) and triglycerides (TG) in lysosomes in many tissues. We used (1)H magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy to characterize the abnormalities in hepatic lipid content(More)
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) regulates the expression of its genes temporally at the mRNA processing step. A subset of the mRNA species which encode the structural and some accessory genes contains inhibitory sequences (INS or CRS elements) which prevent nuclear export of the RNA or its utilization in the cytoplasm. Such inhibition is overridden by(More)
BACKGROUND AVI-014 is an egg white-derived, recombinant, human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF). This healthy volunteer study is the first human investigation of AVI-014. METHODS 24 male and female subjects received a single subcutaneous injection of AVI-014 at 4 or 8 mcg/kg. 16 control subjects received 4 or 8 mcg/kg of filgrastim (Neupogen,(More)
