The T4 phage capsid accessory protein genes soc and hoc have recently been developed for display of peptides and protein domains at high copy number (Ren et al., 1996. Protein Science 5, 1833-1843; Ren et al., 1997. Gene 195, 303-311). That biologically active and full-length foreign proteins can be displayed by fusion to SOC and HOC on the T4 capsid is(More)
Peptides fused to the coat proteins of filamentous phages have found widespread applications in antigen display, the construction of antibody libraries, and biopanning. However, such systems are limited in terms of the size and number of the peptides that may be incorporated without compromising the fusion proteins' capacity to self-assemble. We describe(More)
A method was developed to clone linear DNAs by overexpressing T4 phage DNA ligase in vivo, based upon recombination deficient E. coli derivatives that carry a plasmid containing an inducible T4 DNA ligase gene. Integration of this ligase-plasmid into the chromosome of such E. coli allows standard plasmid isolation following linear DNA transformation of the(More)
MicroRNAs (miRs) are small noncoding RNAs that negatively regulate gene expression by binding to the three untranslated regions of their target mRNAs. Deregulations of miRs were shown to play pivotal roles in tumorigenesis and progression. Recent research efforts have been devoted to translating these basic discoveries into applications that could improve(More)
An orally delivered foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) vaccine has not previously been reported. By using a T4 bacteriophage nanoparticle surface gene-protein display system (T4-S-GPDS), we created a foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) entire capsid protein vaccine candidate. On the T4 phage surface SOC site, a full length FMDV capsid precursor polyprotein (P1,(More)
Although the Mdm2/p53 interaction has been well documented, it is not clear whether there are new microRNAs participating in this regulatory network. Here, we provide evidence that miR-509-5p, which is downregulated in a subset of newly diagnosed cervical cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma tissues compared with the adjacent nontumor tissue, can be(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet distribution width (PDW), platelet count (PC) and erectile dysfunction (ED). We searched for observational studies from PubMed, EMBASE, Web of Science and CNKI up to 31 March 2016. Two reviewers independently selected the studies and extracted the data.(More)
