Immunogenicity, manufacturing feasibility, and safety of a novel, autologous dendritic cell (DC)-based immunotherapy (AGS-004) was evaluated in ten human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1)-infected adults successfully treated with antiretroviral therapy (ART). Personalized AGS-004 was produced from autologous monocyte-derived DCs electroporated with RNA… (More)
Thioredoxin (Trx) is one of the major redox-regulating proteins. It catalyzes dithiol/disulfide exchange reactions and displays many unique intracellular and extracellular activities thereby controlling multiple mammalian cell functions. In the present study we examine the effect of exogenous Trx on the expression of several antioxidant genes in human lens… (More)
Carboxypeptidase E (CPE) is involved in the biosynthesis of a number of neuropeptides including opioid peptides. A point mutation in this gene results in a loss of enzyme activity, decrease in mature neuroendocrine peptides, and development of late onset obesity as seen in Cpe(fat)/Cpe(fat) mice. In this study, we examined the processing of peptides derived… (More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the function and phenotype of CD8(+) T-cells targeting consensus and autologous sequences of entire HIV-1 Nef protein. METHODS Multiparameter flow cytometry-based analysis was used to evaluate the responses of two treatment naïve HIV-infected individuals, during primary and the chronic phases of infection. RESULTS A greater… (More)
In this paper different approaches of NoC design, main concepts and popular NoC architectures and verification challenges of NoC design are described.
The paper includes the data concerning the taxonomic status of the agent of cereals pale-green dwarf (ACPGD) which has been defined as the phytopathogenic variant of the mollicute Acholeplasma laidlawii and called A. laidlawii var. granulum. Since besides phytopathogenicity ACPGD has such fundamental differences from A.laidlawii as: a very large genome of… (More)
