AS03 is an Adjuvant System (AS) containing α-tocopherol and squalene in an oil-in-water (o/w) emulsion. AS03 has been considered for the development of pandemic and seasonal influenza vaccines. Key features of AS03's mode of action were investigated in vivo in mice and ex vivo in human cells. AS03's adjuvant activity was superior to that of aluminium(More)

In children, hypophosphatemic rickets (HR) is revealed by delayed walking, waddling gait, leg bowing, enlarged cartilages, bone pain, craniostenosis, spontaneous dental abscesses, and growth failure. If undiagnosed during childhood, patients with hypophosphatemia present with bone and/or joint pain, fractures, mineralization defects such as osteomalacia,(More)
In plants, aquaporins regulate the water flow through membranes during growth, development and stress responses. We have isolated two isoforms of the aquaporin family from the protein-storage vacuoles of lentil (Lens culinaris Med.) seeds. Chemical cross-linking experiments showed that both isoforms belong to the same oligomer in the membrane and are(More)
