This paper considers the pricing of options when there are jumps in the pricing kernel and correlated jumps in asset returns and volatilities. Limiting cases of our GARCH processes consist of models where both asset returns and local volatility follow jump diffusion processes with correlated jump sizes. Convergence of the GARCH models to their continuous(More)
Bacterial H-NS forms nucleoprotein filaments that spread on DNA and bridge distant DNA sites. H-NS filaments co-localize with sites of Rho-dependent termination in Escherichia coli, but their direct effects on transcriptional pausing and termination are untested. In this study, we report that bridged H-NS filaments strongly increase pausing by E. coli RNA(More)
The RecG DNA helicase a key player in stalled replication fork rescue. The single-stranded DNA binding protein (SSB) participates in this process, but its role in the interaction of RecG with the fork remains unclear. We used atomic force microscopy (AFM) to visualize the interaction of RecG with a fork DNA in the presence of SSB. We discovered that SSB(More)
The purposes of this study were to test the effect of tetrandrine, alone or combined with radiation, on human esophageal cancer cell line TE1 (TE1 cells) and investigate the potential antitumor mechanism. Human esophageal cancer cell line TE1 was tested by methyl thiazolyl tetrazolium assay for cell proliferation, colony-forming assay for cell(More)
Eye tracking is a compelling tool for revealing people's spatial-temporal distribution of visual attention. But quality eye tracking hardware is expensive and can only be used with one person at a time. Further, webcam eye tracking systems have significant limitations on head movement and lighting conditions that result in significant data loss and(More)
We aim to investigate the effects of adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) transplantation on irradiation-induced skeletal muscle fibrosis. Sixty-four rabbits were randomly divided into ASCs group and PBS group followed by irradiation at unilateral hip with a single dose of 80 Gy. Nonirradiated side with normal skeletal muscle served as normal control. Skeletal(More)
The HIV-1 restriction factor SAMHD1 is a tetrameric enzyme activated by guanine nucleotides with dNTP triphosphate hydrolase activity (dNTPase). In addition to this established activity, there have been a series of conflicting reports as to whether the enzyme also possesses single-stranded DNA and/or RNA 3'-5' exonuclease activity. SAMHD1 was purified using(More)
The goal of the present work was to study the feasibility of 10-hydroxycamptothecin (HCPT) nanoparticle preparation using supercritical antisolvent (SAS) precipitation. The influences of various experimental factors on the mean particle size (MPS) of HCPT nanoparticles were investigated. The optimum micronization conditions are determined as follows: HCPT(More)
The human cytidine deaminase APOBEC3G (A3G) is a potent inhibitor of the HIV-1 virus in the absence of viral infectivity factor (Vif). The molecular mechanism of A3G antiviral activity is primarily attributed to deamination of single-stranded DNA (ssDNA); however, the nondeamination mechanism also contributes to HIV-1 restriction. The interaction of A3G(More)
High-quality and stable PS@TiO(2) core-shell microsphere colloidal crystals were prepared by electrostatic colloid stabilization combined with two-substrate vertical deposition method. The polyelectrolyte stabilized colloids self-assembled into face-centered cubic arrays with the (111) face perpendicular to the substrate. These colloidal crystals are gifted(More)
