Type IV pili are polymeric fibers which protrude from the cell surface and play a critical role in adhesion and invasion by pathogenic bacteria. The secretion of pili across the periplasm and outer membrane is mediated by a specialized secretin protein, PilQ, but the way in which this large channel is formed is unknown. Using NMR, we derived the structures(More)
We have assessed the diagnostic efficacy of a novel polyclonal rabbit antiserum directed to the recombinant major capsid protein VP1 of JC virus (JCV). Immunohistochemistry for VP1 was compared to non-radioactive JCV DNA in situ hybridization (ISH) in ten cases of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML). Tissue sections from postmortem brains were(More)
TPS119 Background: The ErbB2/ErbB3 oncogenic heterodimer is the most potent ErbB receptor pairing with respect to strength of interaction, receptor tyrosine phosphorylation, and downstream signaling through mitogen activated protein kinase and phosphoinositide-3 kinase pathways. MM-111 is a novel bispecific antibody fusion protein that specifically targets(More)
