A joint matrix completion and filtering model for influenza serological data integration.
(Public Library of Science, 7/25/2013)
Antigenic characterization based on serological data, such as Hemagglutination Inhibition (HI) assay, is one of the routine procedures for influenza vaccine strain selection. In many cases, it would be impossible to measure ...
Zebrafish kidney phagocytes utilize macropinocytosis and Ca+-dependent endocytic mechanisms.
(Public Library of Science, 2/2/2009)
BACKGROUND: The innate immune response constitutes the first line of defense against invading pathogens and consists of a variety of immune defense mechanisms including active endocytosis by macrophages and granulocytes. ...
Sequence-based antigenic change prediction by a sparse learning method incorporating co-evolutionary information.
(Public Library of Science, 9/4/2014)
Rapid identification of influenza antigenic variants will be critical in selecting optimal vaccine candidates and thus a key to developing an effective vaccination program. Recent studies suggest that multiple simultaneous ...
