Nonstructural Proteins 4A and 4B of Hepatitis C Virus Transactivate the Interleukin 8 Promoter
Interleukin 8 (IL‐8) is induced in many cell types by various stimuli including virus infection. It was reported that nonstructural protein 5A (NS5A) of hepatitis C virus (HCV) was involved inExpand

Restriction endonuclease cleavage analysis of adenovirus type 8: two new subtypes from patients with epidemic keratoconjunctivitis in Sapporo, Japan.
We studied the restriction endonuclease cleavage patterns of DNAs of adenovirus type 8 (Ad 8) isolated from epidemic keratoconjunctivitis cases. DNAs of 25 Ad 8 isolates collected during the periodExpand

Molecular epidemiology of adenovirus type 8 (Ad 8) in Taiwan: four subtypes recovered during the period of 1980-1981 from patients with epidemic keratoconjunctivitis.
Adenovirus type 8 (Ad 8) has been the major and important causative agent of epidemic keratoconjunctivitis (EKC). By enzymatic cleavage analysis with five endonucleases, PstI, HindIII, BamHI, SalIExpand

The so-called chromosomal verotoxin genes are actually carried by defective prophages.
We have carried out an exhaustive search of the literature and databases on DNA sequences of verotoxin genes, most of which are carried by prophages and only two described as chromosomal: one is fromExpand

Mechanism of Oxidative Damage to Fish Red Blood Cells by Ozone
The present study was conducted to elucidate the adverse effects of ozone exposure on rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) red blood cells (RBCs). We evaluated whether hemoglobin (Hb) or Hb‐derivedExpand
