Endomorphin-2 (EM-2) is a carboxy-amidated tetrapeptide that binds the mu-opioid receptor with high affinity and is analgesic in several animal models of pain. Endomorphin peptides have been isolated from bovine and human brain, but no DNA sequences corresponding to a potential preproendomorphin gene have been identified in human genome sequence databases.(More)
This paper puts forward a new efficient construction for Multi-Receiver Signcryption in the Identity-based setting. We consider a scenario where a user wants to securely send a message to a dynamically changing subset of the receivers in such a way that non-members of the of this subset cannot learn the message. The obvious solution is to transmit an(More)
Phosphorylation of the vanilloid receptor (TRPV1) by protein kinase C epsilon (PKCepsilon) plays an important role in the development of chronic pain. Here, we employ a highly defective herpes simplex virus vector (vHDNP) that expresses dominant negative PKCepsilon (DNPKCepsilon) as a strategy to demonstrate that PKCepsilon is essential for: (i) maintenance(More)
—Group Key Establishment is fundamental for a variety of security mechanisms in group applications. It allows n ≥ 2 principals to agree upon a common secret key. This can further be classified into Group Key Exchange (or Group Key Agreement), where all the principals participate in the construction of the key, and Group Key Transport (or Group Key(More)
Pathological alterations of ion channel activity result from changes in modulatory mechanisms governing receptor biology. Here we describe a conditional herpes simplex virus (HSV) replication-based strategy to discover channel modulators whereby inhibition of agonist-induced channel activation by a vector-expressed modulatory gene product prevents ion flux,(More)
