(Department Of Human Nutrition, Foods, And Exercise, 2018-02)
This evaluation summary provides brief descriptions of four studies funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to evaluate the Partnership for a Healthier America’s (PHA’s) branded FNV (Fruits & Veggies) Campaign that ...
A Transcriptome Post-Scaffolding Method for Assembling High Quality Contigs
(Hindawi Publishing Corp, 2014-05-28)
With the rapid development of high throughput sequencing technologies, new transcriptomes can be sequenced for little cost with high coverage. Sequence assembly approaches have been modified to meet the requirements for ...
LAT Region Factors Mediating Differential Neuronal Tropism of HSV-1 and HSV-2 Do Not Act in Trans
After HSV infection, some trigeminal ganglion neurons support productive cycle gene expression, while in other neurons the virus establishes a latent infection. We previously demonstrated that HSV-1 and HSV-2 preferentially ...
A VP26-mNeonGreen Capsid Fusion HSV-2 Mutant Reactivates from Viral Latency in the Guinea Pig Genital Model with Normal Kinetics
Fluorescent herpes simplex viruses (HSV) are invaluable tools for localizing virus in cells, permitting visualization of capsid trafficking and enhancing neuroanatomical research. Fluorescent viruses can also be used to ...
Mosquito-Borne Viruses and Suppressors of Invertebrate Antiviral RNA Silencing
The natural maintenance cycles of many mosquito-borne viruses require establishment of persistent non-lethal infections in the invertebrate host. While the mechanisms by which this occurs are not well understood, antiviral ...
Comparative physical genome mapping of malaria vectors Anopheles sinensis and Anopheles gambiae
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2017-06-05)
Background Anopheles sinensis is a dominant natural vector of Plasmodium vivax in China, Taiwan, Japan, and Korea. Recent genome sequencing of An. sinensis provides important insights into the genomic basis of vectorial ...
A standard photomap of ovarian nurse cell chromosomes and inversion polymorphism in Anopheles beklemishevi
Abstract Background Anopheles beklemishevi is a member of the Maculipennis group of malaria mosquitoes that has the most northern distribution among other members of the ...
