Onconase (ONC) and bovine seminal ribonuclease (BS-RNase) are homologs of bovine pancreatic ribonuclease (RNase A). Unlike RNase A, ONC and BS-RNase can evade the cytosolic ribonuclease inhibitor protein and are potent cytotoxins. Here, the endogenous cytotoxic activities of ONC and BS-RNase are compared in a wide variety of assays. Injections of ONC into(More)
BACKGROUND Intestinal macrophages are key regulators of inflammatory responses to the gut microbiome and play a central role in maintaining tissue homeostasis and epithelial integrity. However, little is known about the role of these cells in HIV infection, a disease fuelled by intestinal inflammation, a loss of epithelial barrier function and increased(More)
