Marker effects on reversion of T4rII mutants. (1/26780)

The frequencies of 2-aminopurine- and 5-bromouracil-induced A:T leads to G:C transitions were compared at nonsense sites throughout the rII region of bacteriophage T4. These frequencies are influenced both by adjacent base pairs within the nonsense codons and by extracodonic factors. Following 2AP treatment, they are high in amber (UAG) and lower in opal (UGA) codons than in allelic ochre (UAA) codons. In general, 5BU-induced transitions are more frequent in both amber and opal codons than in the allelic ochre codons. 2AP- and 5BU-induced transition frequencies in the first and third positions of opal codons are correlated with those in the corresponding positions of the allelic ochre codons. Similarly, the frequencies of 2AP-induced transition in the first and second positions of amber codons and their ochre alleles are correlated. However, there is little correlation between the frequencies of 5BU-induced transitions in the first and second positions of allelic amber and ochre codons.  (+info)

Four dimers of lambda repressor bound to two suitably spaced pairs of lambda operators form octamers and DNA loops over large distances. (2/26780)

Transcription factors that are bound specifically to DNA often interact with each other over thousands of base pairs [1] [2]. Large DNA loops resulting from such interactions have been observed in Escherichia coli with the transcription factors deoR [3] and NtrC [4], but such interactions are not, as yet, well understood. We propose that unique protein complexes, that are not present in solution, may form specifically on DNA. Their uniqueness would make it possible for them to interact tightly and specifically with each other. We used the repressor and operators of coliphage lambda to construct a model system in which to test our proposition. lambda repressor is a dimer at physiological concentrations, but forms tetramers and octamers at a hundredfold higher concentration. We predict that two lambda repressor dimers form a tetramer in vitro when bound to two lambda operators spaced 24 bp apart and that two such tetramers interact to form an octamer. We examined, in vitro, relaxed circular plasmid DNA in which such operator pairs were separated by 2,850 bp and 2,470 bp. Of these molecules, 29% formed loops as seen by electron microscopy (EM). The loop increased the tightness of binding of lambda repressor to lambda operator. Consequently, repression of the lambda PR promoter in vivo was increased fourfold by the presence of a second pair of lambda operators, separated by a distance of 3,600 bp.  (+info)

Human topoisomerase I promotes initiation of simian virus 40 DNA replication in vitro. (3/26780)

Addition of purified human topoisomerase I (topo I) to simian virus 40 T antigen-driven in vitro DNA replication reactions performed with topo I-deficient extracts results in a greater than 10-fold stimulation of completed molecules as well as a more than 3-fold enhancement of overall DNA replication. To further characterize this stimulation, we first demonstrate that bovine topo I but not Escherichia coli topo I can also enhance DNA replication. By using several human topo I mutants, we show that a catalytically active form of topo I is required. To delineate whether topo I influences the initiation or the elongation step of replication, we performed delayed pulse, pulse-chase, and delayed pulse-chase experiments. The results illustrate that topo I cannot promote the completion of partially replicated molecules but is needed from the beginning of the reaction to initiate replication. Competitive inhibition experiments with the topo I binding T antigen fragment 1-246T and a catalytically inactive topo I mutant suggest that part of topo I's stimulation of replication is mediated through a direct interaction with T antigen. Collectively, our data indicate that topo I enhances the synthesis of fully replicated DNA molecules by forming essential interactions with T antigen and stimulating initiation.  (+info)

Induction of AT-specific DNA-interstrand crosslinks by bizelesin in genomic and simian virus 40 DNA. (4/26780)

Bizelesin is a bifunctional AT-specific DNA alkylating drug. Our study characterized the ability of bizelesin to induce interstrand crosslinks, a potential lethal lesion. In genomic DNA of BSC-1 cells, bizelesin formed from approx. 0.3 to 6.03+/-0.85 interstrand crosslinks per 106 base pairs, at 5-100 nM drug concentration, respectively, comparable to the number of total adducts previously determined in the same system (J.M. Woynarowski, M.M. McHugh, L.S. Gawron, T.A. Beerman, Biochemistry 34 (1995) 13042-13050). Bizelesin did not induce DNA-protein crosslinks or strand breaks. A model defined target, intracellular simian virus 40 (SV40) DNA, was employed to map at the nucleotide level sites of bizelesin adducts, including potential interstrand crosslinks. Preferential adduct formation was observed at AT tracts which are abundant in the SV40 matrix associated region and the origin of replication. Many sites, including each occurrence of 5'-T(A/T)4A-3', co-mapped on both DNA strands suggesting interstrand crosslinks, although monoadducts were also formed. Bizelesin adducts in naked SV40 DNA were found at similar sites. The localization of bizelesin-induced crosslinks in AT-rich tracts of replication-related regions is consistent with the potent anti-replicative properties of bizelesin. Given the apparent lack of other types of lesions in genomic DNA, interstrand crosslinks localized in AT-rich tracts, and to some extent perhaps also monoadducts, are likely to be lethal effects of bizelesin.  (+info)

Hybrid capture II, a new sensitive test for human papillomavirus detection. Comparison with hybrid capture I and PCR results in cervical lesions. (5/26780)

AIM: To test a new assay for the detection of human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA, hybrid capture II (HC II), compared with the previous commercialized hybrid capture I (HC I) and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) results on cervical scrapes from fresh cone excision biopsy samples. METHODS: The three methods were used on cervical scrapes from 42 fresh cone excision biopsy samples. There were nine metaplastic and inflammatory lesions, five low grade lesions, and 28 high grade lesions. PCR was performed using the general primers GP5+/GP6+. The viral load of high risk HPV DNA was estimated by the ratio of relative light units to positive control values in the samples. RESULTS: The sensitivity of HC I for the detection of high grade lesions was 71.4%, while it was 92.8% for HC II and 96.4% for the PCR. Considering only the absence of detectable cervical in situ neoplasia, the specificity was 88.9% for HC I, 66.7% for HC II, and 66.7% for PCR. With HC II, for a ratio of cervical sample to normal control of > 200, the sensitivity for the detection of high grade lesion was only 34.6% with a specificity of 66.7%. CONCLUSIONS: HPV detection with the HC II assay is more sensitive than the previous HC I and represents a more convenient and easier test than PCR for routine use. Nevertheless the viral load estimated with this test cannot be a reliable predictive indicator of high grade lesions.  (+info)

Human papillomavirus DNA in adenosquamous carcinoma of the lung. (6/26780)

AIM: To investigate the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA in adenosquamous carcinoma of the lung--which is relatively common in Okinawa but not in mainland Japan--and examine its histological features. METHODS: Of 207 cases where primary lung cancers were surgically removed between January 1995 and June 1997 in Okinawa, 23 were adenosquamous carcinoma. HPV was detected by non-isotopic in situ hybridisation (NISH) and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification with primers specific for E6 and E7 regions of the HPV genome. PCR products were analysed by Southern blotting. Immunohistochemical determination of high molecular weight cytokeratin (HMC) and involucrin was also carried out. RESULTS: 18 cases were positive for HPV DNA by PCR and NISH. HPV types 6, 11, 16, and 18 were found. Seven cases were dual positive for different types of HPV. Using NISH, HPV was also found in the squamous cell components and in neighbouring enlarged adenocarcinoma cells. The HMC and involucrin were demonstrated immunohistochemically in the same areas. CONCLUSIONS: HPV DNA was found in a high proportion (78.3%) of adenosquamous carcinomas in Okinawa, a region where HPV has previously been shown to be prevalent in squamous cell carcinoma of the lung. The adenocarcinoma cells adjacent to the squamous cell carcinoma component were enlarged and positive for HPV, HMC, and involucrin. This is thought to indicate the transition from adenocarcinoma to squamous cell carcinoma.  (+info)

A review of statistical methods for estimating the risk of vertical human immunodeficiency virus transmission. (7/26780)

BACKGROUND: Estimation of the risk of vertical transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) has been complicated by the lack of a reliable diagnostic test for paediatric HIV infection. METHODS: A literature search was conducted to identify all statistical methods that have been used to estimate HIV vertical transmission risk. Although the focus of this article is the analysis of birth cohort studies, ad hoc studies are also reviewed. CONCLUSIONS: The standard method for estimating HIV vertical transmission risk is biased and inefficient. Various alternative analytical approaches have been proposed but all involve simplifying assumptions and some are difficult to implement. However, early diagnosis/exclusion of infection is now possible because of improvements in polymerase chain reaction technology and complex estimation methods should no longer be required. The best way to analyse studies conducted in breastfeeding populations is still unclear and deserves attention in view of the many intervention studies being planned or conducted in developing countries.  (+info)

Novel endotheliotropic herpesviruses fatal for Asian and African elephants. (8/26780)

A highly fatal hemorrhagic disease has been identified in 10 young Asian and African elephants at North American zoos. In the affected animals there was ultrastructural evidence for herpesvirus-like particles in endothelial cells of the heart, liver, and tongue. Consensus primer polymerase chain reaction combined with sequencing yielded molecular evidence that confirmed the presence of two novel but related herpesviruses associated with the disease, one in Asian elephants and another in African elephants. Otherwise healthy African elephants with external herpetic lesions yielded herpesvirus sequences identical to that found in Asian elephants with endothelial disease. This finding suggests that the Asian elephant deaths were caused by cross-species infection with a herpesvirus that is naturally latent in, but normally not lethal to, African elephants. A reciprocal relationship may exist for the African elephant disease.  (+info)

N2 - Viruses are obligate cellular parasites, and thus the study of their DNA requires isolating viral material away from host cell contaminants and DNA. Several downstream applications require large quantities of pure viral DNA, which is provided by this protocol. These applications include viral genome sequencing, where the removal of host DNA is crucial to optimize data output for viral sequences, and the production of new viral recombinant strains, where co-transfection of purified plasmid and linear viral DNA facilitates recombination.1,2,3 This procedure utilizes a combination of extractions and density-based centrifugation to isolate purified linear herpesvirus nucleocapsid DNA from infected cells.4,5 The initial purification steps aim to isolate purified viral capsids, which contain and protect the viral DNA during the ...
To accurately determine the actual rate of DSB unique integration of viral DNA, we developed a method for quantitative I SceI PCR analysis of the provirus DNA and examined whether viral DNA integration into the I SceI site was affected by RAL. PCR amplification targeting the junction of the I SceI website HSP inhibitors and the 50 end of the built-in proviral DNA uniquely created PCR amplicons in the Ad I SceI infected samples. Sequence analysis of a few independent clones found the presence of provirus DNA within the I SceI site. Particularly, KU55933 blocked I SceI sitetargeted integration. Similar results were obtained utilizing a different process with another rare reducing endonuclease, I PpoI. The recognition internet sites of I PpoI can be found in the human genome, though the mammalian genome does not have any gene that encodes the enzyme. In this experiment, we used a lentiviral vector to guarantee the generality of our observations. As shown in Figure 1F, the viral DNA reproducibly ...
Detecting pathogenic DNA by intracellular receptors termed sensors is critical toward galvanizing host immune responses and eliminating microbial infections. Emerging evidence has challenged the dogma that sensing of viral DNA occurs exclusively in sub-cellular compartments normally devoid of cellular DNA. The interferon-inducible protein IFI16 was shown to bind nuclear viral DNA and initiate immune signaling, culminating in antiviral cytokine secretion. Here, we review the newly characterized nucleus-originating immune signaling pathways, their links to other crucial host defenses, and unique mechanisms by which viruses suppress their functions. We frame these findings in the context of human pathologies associated with nuclear replicating DNA viruses. © 2015 by The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Inc.. ...

The post Consider the linear city model that has length 1. Firm 1 is located at .25 miles from the left end and Firm 2 is located .75 miles from the left end.
Introduction: During productive infection, human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) genes are expressed in a temporal cascade, with temporal phases designated as immediate-early (IE), early, and late. The major IE (MIE) genes, UL123 and UL122 (IE1/IE2), play a critical role in subsequent viral gene expression and the efficiency of viral replication. The early viral genes encode proteins necessary for viral DNA replication. Following viral DNA replication, delayed-early and late viral genes are expressed which encode structural proteins for the virion. The late genes can be divided into two broad classes. At early times the gamma-1 or leaky-late class are expressed at low levels after infection and are dramatically upregulated at late times. In contrast, the gamma-2 or true late genes are expressed exclusively after viral DNA replication. Expression of true late (gamma-2 class) viral genes is completely prevented by inhibition of viral DNA synthesis. Areas covered: This review addresses the viral genes required

The integrated HIV-1 provirus is transcribed into new genomic RNA, also serving as mRNA, which is in turn translated into viral proteins [2-6, 65] (Fig. 1). Although it is speculated that the integrated copies of viral DNA are the sole template for viral gene expression, there is also evidence of preintegration transcription from unintegrated DNA [5, 65] (Fig. 1). Most recently, it has been shown that the transcriptional interplay is regulated oppositely between integrated and unintegrated DNA following NF-κB pathway modulation [66]. Upon various pharmacological treatments of NF-κB pathway activation, transcription factors such as NF-κB p65 and AP-1 (cFos/cJun) binds to integrated DNA and increases its expression, though the uDNA expression is declined. On the other hand, inhibition of the NF-κB pathway supports the expression of circular uDNA, and Bcl-3 and AP-1 is associated with its LTR region [66]. However, the persistent expression of HIV-1 proteins has already been reported not only in ...
Hepatitis B computer virus (HBV) synthesizes its DNA genome through reverse transcription which is catalyzed by viral polymerase (Pol). viral reverse transcription. Southern blot analysis showed that three mutants (R703A D777A and R781A mutants) yielded significantly reduced amounts of viral DNAs. However none of these mutants were defective in RNA encapsidation. The data indicated that in the R703A and D777A mutants minus-strand DNA synthesis was incomplete due to loss of catalytic activity of RNase H. In contrast in the R781A mutant the minus-strand DNA synthesis was near complete to some extent while the plus-strand DNA synthesis (i.e. relaxed circular DNA) was severely impaired due to the defect in RNase H activity. Overall our analysis revealed that three charged residues of the HBV Pol RNase H domain name contribute to the catalysis of RNase H in removing the RNA template but not in the RNA encapsidation. INTRODUCTION Hepatitis B computer virus (HBV) the prototypic member of the ...

Discuss the regulation of gene expression in HIV and the life cycle, and comment on the importance of these in the success - Essay Example Memory helper cells are differentially infected by the virus. The virus binds to the target cell using interactions between viral surface proteins (gp120) and cell surface proteins. The CD4 antigen, and the CXCR4 and CCR5 co-receptors on the host cell membrane are crucial in mediating viral entry into the cell. The interaction allows the viral and cellular membranes to fuse, so that the viral contents, including RNA and viral enzymes, enter the host cell. The viral capsid then uncoats and disassembles to release the 2 viral RNA strands, which are used to make complementary DNA by the viral enzyme reverse transcriptase. The virus cDNA is transported to the nucleus, where the viral integrase enzyme incorporates viral DNA into the host DNA, forming the provirus. The viral DNA genome remains latent in the cell for many years, as long as the T cell is quescent. ...
The present invention relates to a method of forming a three-stranded DNA molecule wherein each strand of the three-stranded DNA molecule is hybridized (that is, non-covalently bound) to at least one other strand of the three-stranded DNA molecule. The method comprises:contacting a recombination protein with a double-stranded DNA molecule and with a single-stranded DNA molecule sufficiently complementary to one strand of the double-stranded DNA molecule to hybridize therewith, which contacting is effected under conditions such that the single-stranded DNA molecule hybridizes to the double-stranded molecule so that the three stranded DNA molecule is formed.
DNA replication, the basis for biological inheritance, is a fundamental process occurring in all living organisms to copy their DNA. This process is semiconservative in that each strand of the original double-stranded DNA molecule serves as template for the reproduction of the complementary strand. Hence, following DNA replication, two identical DNA molecules have been produced from a single double-stranded DNA molecule. Cellular proofreading and error-checking mechanisms ensure near perfect fidelity for DNA replication ...
Lesions begin with infection of a group of epithelial cells that are lysed following viral replication, creating small fluid-filled blisters or vesicles containing large numbers of infectious virions. Rupture of the vesicles produces painful ulcerations. Latency of the disease is incompletely understood. The viral DNA exists within nerve cells in a circular, non-infectious form during times when there are no symptoms. In this state, only a small portion of the HSV genome is transcribed. At times, however, the entire viral chromosome can be transcribed and complete infectious virions replicated. These reinfect the area supplied by the nerve and cause a recurrence. The mechanisms by which the latent infection is maintained or reactivated are not known in detail, but they probably depend on cellular immunity. ■ latent infections, p. 463 Genital herpes can pose a serious risk to newborn babies.

The regions of the human adenoviral genome associated with the process of oncogenesis have been identified using several approaches. Analysis of the viral DNAs contained in different lines of cells transformed by virus has demonstrated that retention of the leftmost 14% of the genome is sufficient for the maintenance of the transformed growth properties of these cells (Gallimore et al. 1974). The adenoviral mRNAs expressed in transformed cell lines are similar to those expressed from these DNA sequences during the early phase of the productive infection (Flint et al. 1975). The left end of the viral DNA contains at least two genes necessary for transformation, since two complementation groups of host-range mutants that map within this region (Frost and Williams 1978) are both defective for transformation (Graham et al. 1978). Transfection of cells with fragments of viral DNA has provided a direct means of determining the minimum amount of viral... ...

RANDOM KNOTTING AND VIRAL DNA PACKING: THEORY AND EXPERIMENTS. De Witt Sumners Department of Mathematics Florida State University Tallahassee, FL 32306 [email protected] RANDOM KNOTTING. Slideshow 304934 by sheena
An approach developed by virus researchers of the German Cancer Research Center now provides a promising alternative. Markus Schmitt and his colleagues describe their test method in the latest issue of the Journal of Clinical Microbiology*: They first isolate the viral genetic material from a tissue sample, amplify and label it. The enriched DNA material is subsequently mixed with different probes, i.e. small DNA fragments each of which is typical for a specific virus type. If the DNA sequences of the viral DNA under study and the probe are identical, they will bind to each other. The probe thus isolates the unknown DNA from the mixture - a process called hybridization. The probes, in turn, are coupled to tiny plastic beads of different colors, with each type of probe attached to beads of the same color. A reading device measures the amount of hybridized viral DNA on the beads. By their characteristic color, the beads tell us which viral DNA was present in the sample ...

How can I find out if my cell line is free of pathogens? What pathogens should I be concerned about?. If you bought the cells from a vendor or a culture collection, then you can consult their catalog. Many catalogs will list safety and pathogen information -- if you cannot find it, contact the vendor. If you received the cells from another lab, you should find out where they originally came from.. Cell lines can contain harmful viruses. Sometimes, the viral genome is integrated into the cells genome. Most viruses have a limited host range, which means that they can only infect closely related species. Therefore, viruses living in a human or monkey cell line are likely to be dangerous to humans, but viruses living in an insect cell line probably cannot infect humans. If you work with a cell line from humans or other primates, you should check whether it contains viruses or viral genomic DNA. Viruses have Risk Group numbers, so if your cell line contains any viruses, you must handle it at the ...
Prokaryotes are the group of organisms including bacteria and archaea that do not have a membrane-bound nucleus and instead have a circular, double-stranded molecule of DNA called a nucleoid, that is not contained in a nuclear envelope.
Like many other life forms, bacteria too are prone to viral infections. Many bacteria harbor restriction endonuclease enzymes, which help check the infection by selectively cutting and destroying the viral genomic DNA. The perpetual tussle between bacteria and viruses to gain an upper hand has resulted in a battery of restriction enzymes of different complexities. There are the simple nucleases that cut DNA at target sites - two copies of the nuclease come together, each cutting a strand to slice the double-stranded DNA. And there are motor-driven nucleases that are massive in size and use chemical energy to cut DNA only upon collision with another such nuclease and away from the target sites. A collaborative study between a team of scientists at IISER Pune and the University of Bristol, UK, of these energy-driven nucleases, published this week in Nature Chemical Biology, reveals a new mechanism of DNA break formation involving a compound damage caused by DNA shredding rather than ...

Protein involved in DNA replication, i.e. the duplication of DNA by making a new copy of an existing molecule.

Previously, the Apply to each object separately checkbox had no effect for the Move tab. Now, if several objects are selected, this checkbox is on, and Relative move is on, each object is shifted relative to the closest selected object on the left (for X) or below (for Y). For example, if you have a horizontal row of objects and you move them relatively by X=5px with Apply to each object separately on, the leftmost object will shift by 5px, the next one to the right by 10px, and so on; the rightmost selected object is displaced by 5*n px where n is the number of selected objects. As a result, the distance in each pair of adjacent objects will increase by 5px and the whole row will be spaced out, much like a letterspacing adjustment spaces out a text string. Moving these objects by X=-5px will, conversely, squeeze them tighter together: the leftmost will move by -5px, the next one by -10px, and so on. For Y, the effect is the same except that the move starts from the object closest to the ...

AU - Mourrain, Pascale. AU - Sever, John L.. AU - Major, Eugene O.. PY - 1985/10. Y1 - 1985/10. N2 - Using the technique of in situ DNA‐to‐DNA hybridization, a JC virus biotinylated DNA probe was developed and applied to formalin‐fixed, paraffin‐embedded, or fixed, frozen sections of brain tissue from three subjects with progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML). Light microscopy was carried out to correlate the presence of JC virus DNA with the selective infection of oligodendrocytes and astrocytes in PML. Oligodendrocytes (lytically infected) showed the greatest evidence of viral DNA. More astrocytes showing bizarre morphological changes had evidence of viral DNA than did astrocytes that were simply reactive. Viral DNA was not evident in vascular endothelial cells using this technique. Viral DNA ...

Plays an essential role in replication and partitioning of viral genomic DNA during latent viral infection. During this phase, the circular double-stranded viral DNA undergoes replication once per cell cycle and is efficiently partitioned to the daughter cells. EBNA1 activates the initiation of viral DNA replication through binding to specific sites in the viral latent origin of replication, oriP. Additionally, it governs the segregation of viral episomes by mediating their attachment to host cell metaphase chromosomes. Also activates the transcription of several viral latency genes. Finally, it can counteract the stabilization of host p53/TP53 by host USP7, thereby decreasing apoptosis and increasing host cell survival.
We have constructed and evaluated the utility of a helper-dependent virus vector system that is derived from Human Cytomegalovirus (HCMV). This vector is based on the herpes simplex virus (HSV) amplicon system and contains the HCMV orthologs of the two cis-acting functions required for replication and packaging of HSV genomes, the complex HCMV viral DNA replication origin (oriLyt), and the cleavage packaging signal (the a sequence). The HCMV amplicon vector replicated independently and was packaged into infectious virions in the presence of helper virus. This vector is capable of delivering and expressing foreign genes in infected cells including progenitor cells such as human CD34+ cells. Packaged defective viral genomes were passaged serially in fibroblasts and could be detected at passage 3; however, the copy number appeared to diminish upon serial passage. The HCMV amplicon offers an alternative vector strategy useful for gene(s) delivery to cells of the hematopoietic lineage.
Preferred Name: Valacyclovir Definition: The hydrochloride salt of the L-valyl ester of the antiviral drug acyclovir. Orally administered, valacyclovir is rapidly converted to acyclovir which inhibits viral DNA replication after further conversion to the nucleotide analog acyclovir triphosphate by viral thymidine kinase, cellular guanyl cyclase, and a number of other cellular enzymes. Acyclovir triphosphate competitively inhibits viral DNA polymerase; incorporates into and terminates the growing viral DNA chain; and inactivates viral DNA polymerase. The greater antiviral activity of acyclovir against herpes simplex virus (HSV) compared with varicella-zoster virus (VZV) is due to its more efficient phosphorylation by HSV thymidine kinase. NCI-GLOSS Definition: A substance that is being studied in the prevention of fungal, bacterial, and viral infections in patients undergoing donor stem cell transplantation with cells that are infected with cytomegalovirus.

In this longitudinal study on 97 women who were virgins at the start of the study and 105 women who only had one sex partner at enrollment, all of the virginal women were HPV DNA negative and VLP 16 seronegative, except for one woman, who was weakly HPV 6 DNA positive and seropositive (both at enrollment and at the second examination). Among these virginal women, only those who had coital experience during follow-up harbored HPV DNA at the second examination, i.e., all of the virgins who stayed virginal throughout the study continued to be HPV DNA negative at follow-up. This strongly supports the idea that HPV is sexually transmitted. This is also supported by our serological results, which show that VLP 16 seroconversion among the virgins occurred only in those who initiated sexual activity (coitus) during follow-up.. The virgins in our study are significantly older (mean age at enrollment, respectively, 24.2 years (group A) and 22.7 years (group B)) than those included in most other studies, ...

There seems to be a potential problem that falls back on to the Renata case insofar as Dr. Lees findings in Jasmines blood and spleen tissue and the above findings. Can you please tell us about that?. Yes, Catherine, there are multiple potential problems with discovering HPV-16 L1 DNA in Jasmines samples. We must emphasize that what was discovered in the Gardasil® vaccine and in Jasmines samples are viral DNA fragments, not the infective wild viruses.. First, HPV infection is confined to epithelium. This virus does not survive in the blood or in other organs of a healthy woman. Any naked HPV DNA fragments in the circulating blood would be degraded by serum or intracellular DNA nucleases (enzymes) if these fragments are taken up by the macrophages (a component of the white blood cells), and eliminated from the body in 24-48 hours.. Since the HPV-16 L1 gene DNA fragments were discovered 6 months after Jasmines last Gardasil® vaccination, we have to assume these HPV DNA fragments were either ...
ATP-dependent DNA helicase required for initiation of viral DNA replication. It forms a complex with the viral E2 protein. The E1-E2 complex binds to the replication origin which contains binding sites for both proteins. During the initial step, a dimer of E1 interacts with a dimer of protein E2 leading to a complex that binds the viral origin of replication with high specificity. Then, a second dimer of E1 displaces the E2 dimer in an ATP-dependent manner to form the E1 tetramer. Following this, two E1 monomers are added to each half of the site, which results in the formation of two E1 trimers on the viral ori. Subsequently, two hexamers will be created. The double hexamer acts as a bi-directional helicase machinery and unwinds the viral DNA and then recruits the host DNA polymerase to start replication.

Valniche is a brand of Valganciclovir, a pro-drug of gancilcovir which, after oral administration, is rapidly converted to ganciclovir by intestinal and hepatic esterases. The virustatic activity of ganciclovir is due to inhibition of viral DNA synthesis by: (a) competitive inhibition of incorporation of deoxyguanosine-triphosphate into DNA by viral DNA polymerase, and (b) incorporation of ganciclovir triphosphate into viral DNA causing termination of, or very limited, further viral DNA elongation. For kidney transplant patients, the recommended dose is 900 mg once daily with food, starting within 10 days of transplantation until 200 days post-transplantation. ...

KLF15 knockdown also reduced the HBV DNA level in the serum (Fig. 7C). Similar to HBsAg profiles, this reduction effect was more prominent with 50 than with. 30 μg of KLF15 RNAi construct. To further confirm the effect of KLF15 on HBV replication, we generated an HBV genome with the CPm2 mutations that abolished the stimulatory effect of KLF15 on the core promoter (Fig. 2D). The replication efficiency of this HBV mutant plasmid in mice was then compared with that of the wild-type plasmid by hydrodynamic Alisertib molecular weight injection. As shown in Fig. 8, mice injected with the mutant genome had significantly lower levels of viral DNA in the sera than those injected with the wild-type genome (Mann-Whitney U = 27.0, P = 0.030, two-tailed). These results demonstrated the importance of the KLF15 response element in the core promoter in HBV replication. In this study, we demonstrated that the transcription factor, KLF15, could activate HBV major surface and core promoters (Figs. 1 and 2). The ...
Two strains of minute virus of mice (MVM) show different host-cell specificities. MVM(i) grows in T lymphocytes whereas MVM(p) is fibroblast-specific. By constructing recombinant viral DNAs between the genomes of the two strains, we have shown that two segments of the MVM(i) genome are required for lytic viral growth in T lymphocytic EL4 cells. One segment (iE) was found between nucleotides 1084 and 2070, in a region encoding the early viral proteins and containing mRNA splice signals and the late P39 promoter. The other (iL) was between nucleotides 3523 and 4339 in the region coding for capsid protein. The P39 promoters within the E segment from MVM(i) or MVM(p) were equally active in transfected EL4 cells. However, pE-containing MVM DNA produced more NS2 mRNA than iE-containing DNA, apparently the result of virus-strain-specific differences in the regulation of splicing.

When and how often laboratory tests are done may depend on many factors. The timing of laboratory tests may rely on the results or completion of other tests, procedures, or treatments. Lab tests may be performed immediately in an emergency, or tests may be delayed as a condition is treated or monitored. A test may be suggested or become necessary when certain signs or symptoms appear. Due to changes in the way your body naturally functions through the course of a day, lab tests may need to be performed at a certain time of day. If you have prepared for a test by changing your food or fluid intake, lab tests may be timed in accordance with those changes. Timing of tests may be based on increased and decreased levels of medications, drugs or other substances in the body. The age or gender of the person being tested may affect when and how often a lab test is required. Chronic or progressive conditions may need ongoing monitoring through the use of lab tests. Conditions that worsen and improve may ...

Viruses are parasitic infectious agents with a nanoscale shell, known as the capsid, that encapsulates the genomic material. Most bacteriophage viruses invade bacteria by transferring their genome inside the host cell while leaving the capsid outside. Thus, the foremost event of bacteriophage infection is the ejection of genomic material into the host bacterium after the virus has recognized and bound to surface receptor sites. How ejection is triggered is yet unknown. We show, by manipulating individual mature T7 phage particles, that tapping the capsid wall with an oscillating atomic-force-microscope cantilever triggers rapid DNA ejection via the tail complex. Triggering rate increases exponentially as a function of force, hence follows transition-state theory, across an activation barrier of 23 kcal/mol at 1.2 nm along the reaction coordinate. The conformation of the ejected DNA molecule revealed that it had been exposed to a propulsive force. This force, arising from intra-capsid pressure, assists

Human herpesvirus 6B (HHV-6B) is a DNA virus that infects most children within the first few years of life. After primary infection, HHV-6B persists as a chronic, latent infection in many cell types. Additionally, HHV-6B can integrate into germ line chromosomes, resulting in individuals with viral DNA in every nucleated cell. Given that PCR to detect viral DNA is the mainstay for diagnosing HHV-6B infection, the characteristics of HHV-... ...
On Sept 20, 1952, Alfred Hershey and Martha Chase published a report confirming DNA holds hereditary data. Their experiment used the T2 bacteriophage, which, like other viruses, is just a crystal of DNA and protein. It can reproduce when inside a bacterium such as E. coli. When the new T2 viruses are ready to leave the host E. coli cell (and go infect others), they burst the E. coli cell open, killing it (hence the name bacteriophage). Hershey and Chase were seeking an answer to the question, Is it the viral DNA or viral protein coat (capsid) that is the viral genetic code material which gets injected into the E. coli? Their results indicated that the viral DNA, not the protein, is its genetic code material ...
Lytic cycle is one one of the two alternative life cycles of a virus inside a host cell, whereby the virus that has entered a cell takes over the cells replication mechanism, makes viral DNA and viral proteins, and then lyses (breaks open) the cell, allowing the newly produced viruses to leave the now disintegrated host cell to infect other cells. This method of replication is contrasted with the lysogenic cycle, whereby the virus that has infected a cell attaches itself to the host DNA and, acting like an inert segment of the DNA, replicates when the host cell divides. The lysogenic cycle causes no harm to the host cell, but the lytic cycle results in the destruction of the infected cell ...
