Increased upstream productivity and the continuous pressure to deliver high quality drug product have resulted in the development of new separation technologies and platform strategies for downstream purification processes of monoclonal antibodies (mAb). In this study, the separation attributes of three mixed-mode resins, Mercapto-Ethyl-Pyridine (MEP)(More)
High temperature is one of the most important abiotic factors influencing plant growth and development. Radish is a cool season vegetable crop sensitive to higher temperatures. Heat injuries may affect plant growth, and interfere with formation and thickening of the fleshy taproot. To characterize the heat-stress response in radish, 30-day-old radish(More)
Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is a major risk factor in transplantation and AIDS patients, which induces high morbidity and mortality. These patients infected with HCMV experience an imbalance of redox homeostasis that cause accumulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) at the cellular level. H2O2, the most common reactive oxygen species, is the main(More)
The injected fluids in secondary processes supplement the natural energy present in the reservoir to displace oil. The recovery efficiency mainly depends on the mechanism of pressure maintenance. However, the injected fluids in tertiary or enhanced oil recovery (EOR) processes interact with the reservoir rock/oil system. Thus, EOR techniques are receiving(More)
UNLABELLED Clinical application of cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs) in cancer therapy is greatly restricted due to lack of tissue selectivity and tumor-targeting ability. CB5005, a rationally designed CPP that targets and inhibits intracellular NF-κB activation, is constituted by a unique membrane-permeable sequence (CB5005M) cascading to a NF-κB nuclear(More)
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) reactivation leads to obvious morbidity and mortality in patients after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allo-HCT). Current immunosuppressive therapy reduces the frequency of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), and is generally accepted as a high risk factor for viral recurrence. In the present study, we investigated the(More)
A fundamental challenge for developing an effective and safe HIV-1 vaccine is to identify vaccine immunogens that can initiate and maintain immune responses leading to elicitation of broadly neutralizing HIV-1 antibodies (bnAbs) through complex maturation pathways. We have previously found that HIV-1 envelope glycoproteins (Env) lack measurable binding to(More)
Delivery of biomacromolecules into the eye is greatly hindered by several protective barriers. The cell-penetrating peptide, penetratin, has been found to be an effective absorption enhancer for noninvasive intraocular gene delivery. To discern the composition of penetratin for safe penetration from cornea to retina, we designed a series of penetratin(More)
Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) is known to cause reproductive disorders, such as abortion, in pregnant sows as well as immunosuppressive respiratory complications, leading to severe respiratory tract infections in young pigs. In this study, an in-depth analysis of the miRNomes in mock- and virus-infected pig lungs was carried(More)
The 2009 influenza pandemic had a tremendous social and economic impact. To study the genetic diversity and evolution of the 2009 H1N1 virus, a mutation network for the non-structural (NS) gene of the virus was constructed. Strains of the 2009 H1N1 pandemic influenza A virus could be divided into two categories based on the V123I mutation in the NS1 gene:(More)
