Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) has devastated pig industries worldwide for many years. It is caused by a small RNA virus (PRRSV), which targets almost exclusively pig monocytes or macrophages. In the present study, five SAGE (serial analysis of gene expression) libraries derived from 0 hour mock-infected and 6, 12, 16 and 24 hours(More)
Allostery through DNA is increasingly recognized as an important modulator of DNA functions. Here, we show that the coalescence of protein-induced DNA bubbles can mediate allosteric interactions that drive protein aggregation. We propose that such allostery may regulate DNA's flexibility and the assembly of the transcription machinery. Mitochondrial(More)
The spatial variability of hydraulic conductivity is studied using grain-size data collected at a groundwater tracer test site located at Columbus AFB, MS. The study involves vertical kriging and the construction of segmented trend surfaces. It is observed that there exists some simple spatial patterns of hydraulic conductivity. Also, a possible existence(More)
