Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited. Abstract: Access to live-fire training ranges is vital in maintaining the readiness of our Armed Forces. Understanding the nature of residue deposition and fate is critical to ensuring sound management of ranges. The objective of this project was to characterize residues of high explosives on training(More)
In order to gain novel insights into thymus biology, we analysed the whole transcriptome of cortical and medullary thymic epithelial cells (cTECs and mTECs) and of skin epithelial cells (ECs). Consistent with their ability to express ectopic genes, mTECs expressed more genes than other cell populations. Out of a total of 15,069 genes expressed in TECs, 25%(More)
Proteins show drastic discrepancies in their contribution to the collection of self-peptides that shape the repertoire of CD8 T cells (MHC I self-immunopeptidome). To decipher why selected proteins are the foremost sources of MHC I-associated self-peptides, we chose to study SIMP/STT3B because this protein generates very high amounts of MHC I-associated(More)
Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited. Abstract: The objectives of the research described in this report are to characterize the deposition and accumulation of propellant residues at the various types of firing points at military firing ranges, develop process descriptors to allow estimation of environmental transport rates of individual(More)
