The regulatory networks governing development and differentiation of hematopoietic cells are incompletely understood. Members of the Schlafen (Slfn) protein family have been implicated in the regulation of cell growth and T cell development. We have identified and chromosomally mapped four new members, slfn5, slfn8, slfn9 and slfn10, which belong to a(More)
The body pattern along the anterior-posterior axis of the insect embryo is thought to be established by two organizing centres localized at the ends of the egg. Genetic analysis of the polarity-organizing centres in Drosophila has identified three distinct classes of maternal effect genes that organize the anterior, posterior and terminal pattern elements(More)
Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) is a globally spreading alphavirus against which there is no commercially available vaccine or therapy. Here we use a genome-wide siRNA screen to identify 156 proviral and 41 antiviral host factors affecting CHIKV replication. We analyse the cellular pathways in which human proviral genes are involved and identify druggable(More)
The implementation of hybrid fluorescence molecular tomography (FMT) and X-ray computed tomography (CT) has been shown to be a necessary development, not only for combining anatomical with functional and molecular contrast, but also for generating optical images of high accuracy. FMT affords highly sensitive 3-D imaging of fluorescence bio-distribution, but(More)
Norovirus infection is the main cause of epidemic non-bacterial gastroenteritis in humans. Although human norovirus (HuNoV) infection is self-limiting, it can persist for extended periods of time in immune deficient patients. Due to the lack of robust cell culture and small animal systems, little is known about HuNoV pathogenicity. However, murine norovirus(More)
Genes from two Drosophila virilis intermoult puffs were isolated by microcloning. From puff 16A on the X-chromosome a 2.9 kb DNA fragment was obtained, which hybridizes with three transcripts. Two of them represent the mRNAs for larval glue proteins. They are found in different abundancies in third larval instar salivary glands, but also in minor amounts in(More)
