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)
We have recently demonstrated the assembly of hepatitis delta virus-like particles (HDV VLP) by co-transducing hepatoma cells using two recombinant baculoviruses, one encoding hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), and one encoding large delta antigen (L-HDAg). In this study, we further demonstrated the assembly and secretion of VLP in other mammalian cells.(More)
AIM To study the baculovirus/mammalian cell system for efficient expression of functional large hepatitis delta antigen (L-HDAg). METHODS A recombinant baculovirus expressing histidine-tagged L-HDAg (L-HDAgH) was constructed to transduce baby hamster kidney (BHK) cells by a simplified transduction protocol. RESULTS The recombinant baculovirus transduced(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)
Recently, the key issues of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications also known as Machine Type Communications (MTC) are widely discussed in 3<sup>rd</sup> Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). One of the key issues for MTC is the IP addressing issue. IPv6 address space is preferred to use in MTC. However, the private IPv4 addresses are used for current(More)
