A peptide derived from bovine beta-casein modulates functional properties of bone marrow-derived macrophages from germfree and human flora-associated mice.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the immunomodulatory activity of a peptide derived from bovine beta-casein (beta-CN), the beta-CN (193-209) peptide, on mouse macrophages that were obtainedExpand

The nine C-terminal amino acids of the respiratory syncytial virus protein P are necessary and sufficient for binding to ribonucleoprotein complexes in which six ribonucleotides are contacted per N
The respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) phosphoprotein (P) is a major polymerase co-factor that interacts with both the large polymerase fragment (L) and the nucleoprotein (N). The N-binding domain ofExpand
