We provide evidence that the sphingolipid ceramide, in addition to its pro-apoptotic function, regulates neural progenitor (NP) motility in vitro and brain development in vivo. Ceramide (N-palmitoyl d-erythro sphingosine and N-oleoyl d-erythro sphingosine) and the ceramide analog N-oleoyl serinol (S18) stimulate migration of NPs in scratch (wounding)(More)
Hepatitis delta virus (HDV) is a defective virus that requires the supply of hepatitis B virus surface antigen (HBsAg) for replication and transmission. We have previously demonstrated that co-transduction of BHK cells with Bac-GD, a recombinant baculovirus expressing large hepatitis delta antigen (L-HDAg), and Bac-GS2, another recombinant baculovirus(More)
