2. Adenovirus-mediated BDNF gene transfer into spinal cord could infect the spinal cord tissue, significantly increasing their BDNF gene expression level, and inducing trk-B receptor expression upwards.
Methods The plasmid pAdEasy-KDR- CDglyTK was transfected into 293 packaging cells for amplification of the infectious Ad, which were then used to infect KDR-producing ECV304 and MCF-7 cells and LS174T cells that did not produce KDR.
Two typical delay regimes, i.e., uniform and degree-dependent delays are incorporated into the SIS epidemic model to investigate the epidemic infection processes in the local-world network model.
The results indicate that the infection delay will promote the epidemic outbreaks, increase the prevalence and reduce the critical threshold of epidemic spreading.
AM infection was severely restrained by 12% soil water content.
Relative water content (RWC), chlorophyll, soluble sugar and starch content of EI and EF populations under normal and drought stress conditions were compared to investigate the effect of endophyte infection on the host plant.
Both genes were determined to be nonessential in viral replication and infection.
In recent years, significant progress has been made towards the chemotherapy (and ?prophylaxis) of HIV infections.
Taken together, it is obvious that in recent years both more diverse and more efficient approaches have become available for the treatment of HIV infections.
HIV is the most significant risk factor for many opportunistic infections like tuberculosis, hepatitis, bacterial infections etc.
We designed an isatin lead compound as a novel non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor with broad-spectrum chemotherapeutic properties for the effective treatment of AIDS and AIDS-related opportunistic infections.
Serologic study on the outbreak of acute upper respiratory tract infections caused by adenovirus 3
Results show that five insect species infect and damage Pinus massoniana, which had been infected by pine wood nematodes, among which four are wood boring beetles and one termite.
Results indicate that recombinant lentiviral vectors can infect murine MNCs and Lin-CD117+ HSCs efficiently, and expression of the transgene can be improved when supplied with cytokines.
We did not succeed in detecting the local root nodule bacteria that were either initially able to infect oriental goat's rue or had adapted to infecting this species due to various genetic rearrangements.
This may be the cause of the appearance of the line of H9N2 viruses from Hong Kong live bird markets with receptor specificity similar to that of H3N2 human viruses, and of the ability of H5N1 and H9N2 chicken influenza viruses to infect humans.
Fungi of the genus Aspergillus can infect all tissues and organs, causing invasive mycosis (aspergillosis).
