A perspective on multiple waves of influenza pandemics.
(Public Library of Science, 4/23/2013)
BACKGROUND: A striking characteristic of the past four influenza pandemic outbreaks in the United States has been the multiple waves of infections. However, the mechanisms responsible for the multiple waves of influenza ...
Ultrasonic incisions produce less inflammatory mediator response during early healing than electrosurgical incisions.
(Public Library of Science, 9/12/2013)
As the use of laparoscopic surgery has become more widespread in recent years, the need has increased for minimally-invasive surgical devices that effectively cut and coagulate tissue with reduced tissue trauma. Although ...
Extreme Evolutionary Conservation of Functionally Important Regions in H1N1 Influenza Proteome
(Public Library of Science, 11/25/2013)
Stallion sperm transcriptome comprises functionally coherent coding and regulatory RNAs as revealed by microarray analysis and RNA-seq.
(Public Library of Science, 2/11/2013)
Mature mammalian sperm contain a complex population of RNAs some of which might regulate spermatogenesis while others probably play a role in fertilization and early development. Due to this limited knowledge, the biological ...
Tricarboxylic acid cycle and one-carbon metabolism pathways are important in Edwardsiella ictaluri virulence.
(Public Library of Science, 6/7/2013)
Edwardsiella ictaluri is a Gram-negative facultative intracellular pathogen causing enteric septicemia of channel catfish (ESC). The disease causes considerable economic losses in the commercial catfish industry in the ...
Role of an iron-dependent transcriptional regulator in the pathogenesis and host response to infection with Streptococcus pneumoniae.
(Public Library of Science, 2/20/2013)
Iron is a critical cofactor for many enzymes and is known to regulate gene expression in many bacterial pathogens. Streptococcus pneumoniae normally inhabits the upper respiratory mucosa but can also invade and replicate ...
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 ...
