Dengue viruses (DEN) cause a broad spectrum of clinical manifestations including potentially life-threatening conditions such as hemorrhagic shock syndrome and less frequently acute hepatitis with liver failure and encephalopathy. In addition, dengue viruses provide a potential model to understand the initiation of hepatocyte infection by the structurally(More)
A cDNA clone encoding an immunoreactive autoantigen (Ngp-1) was isolated by screening lambda gt11 human ductal breast tumor expression libraries with autologous patient serum. The complete 2.3-kb nucleotide sequence of the cDNA was found to contain an open reading frame that could encode a protein of 731 amino acids. The predicted amino acid sequence(More)
Reactive oxygen species are produced transiently in response to cell stimuli, and function as second messengers that oxidize target proteins. Protein-tyrosine phosphatases are important reactive oxygen species targets, whose oxidation results in rapid, reversible, catalytic inactivation. Despite increasing evidence for the importance of protein-tyrosine(More)
Autocatalytic phosphorylation of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) enables diverse, context-dependent responses to extracellular signals but comes at the price of autonomous, ligand-independent activation. Using a conformational biosensor that reports on the kinase activity of the cell guidance ephrin receptor type-A (EphA2) in living cells, we observe that(More)
