Bluetongue virus (BTV) VP2 is an important antigenic protein that can be used for the differential diagnosis of different BTV serotypes. Here, we generated a serotype-specific monoclonal antibody (mab) against BTV1. A series of peptides synthesized based on the amino acid sequence of BTV1 VP2 were screened to define 115AQPLKVGL122 as the minimal linear(More)
VP5, the outer capsid protein of bluetongue virus (BTV), plays an important role in viral penetration and antibody-mediated viral neutralization. Therefore, VP5 represents an important target for development of vaccines and diagnostic tests. In this study, we use bioinformatic tools to predict nine antigenic B cell epitopes in the VP5 protein of a BTV(More)
Positive matrix factorization (PMF) was applied to the merged high resolution mass spectra of organic and inorganic aerosols from aerosol mass spectrometer (AMS) measurements to investigate the sources and evolution processes of submicron aerosols in New York City in summer 2009. This new approach is able to study the distribution of organic and inorganic(More)
We report intrinsic current-voltage properties of ZnO nanowire measured by a four-tip scanning tunneling microscopy ͑F-STM͒. It is found that after bending the nanowire with the F-STM the conductance is reduced by about five orders of magnitude. The cathodoluminescent spectra indicate that the ZnO nanowires contain a sizable amount of defects in the surface(More)
In this paper, a matching circuit for RF diplexer for mobile communication is proposed. Most wanted bands in wireless technologies like GSM and DCS is used. Both bands are designed by using stepped impedance resonators with single order and matching between this two are implemented by Y-junction method. Cutoff frequency for GSM and DCS band are 925 MHz and(More)
Novel graphite-molybdenum carbide nanocomposites (G-Mo2C) are synthesized by a typical solid state reaction with melamine and MoO3 as precursors under inert atmosphere. The characterization results indicate that G-Mo2C composites are composed of high crystallization and purity of Mo2C and few layers of graphite carbon. Mo2C nanoparticles with sizes ranging(More)

The Bluetongue virus (BTV) VP7 protein represents an important group-specific antigen that can serve as a basis for diagnostic tests. Here, we report the generation of a novel BTV group-specific monoclonal antibody (Mab; herein named 4H7) that recognizes a conformational epitope in the VP7 protein. We used a phage-displayed peptide screen and site-directed(More)
