In this work we have studied the intracellular localization properties of the Gag and Env proteins of Moloney murine leukemia virus (MLV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons of rat. These neurons form thick bundles of axons, which facilitates protein localization studies by immunofluorescence analyses. When such(More)
Cellular responses to hypoxia are mediated by the hypoxia-inducible factors (HIF). In normoxia, HIF-α proteins are regulated by a family of dioxygenases, through prolyl and asparagyl hydroxylation, culminating in proteasomal degradation and transcriptional inactivation. In hypoxia, the dioxygenases become inactive and allow formation of HIF transcription(More)
