Recent studies have revealed the contribution of TRIM5alpha to retrovirus restriction in cells from a variety of primate species. TRIM5alpha consists of a tripartite motif (the RBCC domain) followed by a B30.2 domain. The B30.2 domain is thought to be involved in determination of restriction specificity and contains three variable regions. To investigate(More)
For many years it has been accepted that the sequence of a protein can specify its three-dimensional structure. However, there has been limited progress in explaining how the sequence dictates its fold and no attempt to do this computationally without the use of specific structural data has ever succeeded for any protein larger than 100 residues. We(More)
Unintentional injury and trauma rates are disproportionately high in Inuit regions, and environmental changes are predicted to exacerbate injury rates. However, there is a major gap in our understanding of the risk factors contributing to land-based injury and trauma in the Arctic. We investigated the role of environmental and other factors in search and(More)
Network simulator is a significant tool for researchers to simulate the actual network. The main advantage of the simulator is that it gives results much closer to the reality than the mathematical modeling. Furthermore, its cost is much lesser as compared to the real experimentation. The scale and size of the large networks (e.g. Internet) complicate both(More)
This paper contributes to the literature on Indigenous health, human dimensions of climate change, and place-based dimensions of health by examining the role of environment for Inuit health in the context of a changing climate. We investigated the relationship between one key element of the environment - sea ice - and diverse aspects of health in an Inuit(More)
Rapid socio-cultural, economic, and environmental changes are challenging wild food access and thus food security for Inuit in the Canadian Arctic. In response to the continued value and practice of harvesting wild foods, communities are establishing "wild food support" initiatives. This study evaluated how one such initiative, a community freezer, in Nain,(More)
