Stable triplexes play key roles in many biological processes. Due to the Hoogsteen base pairing, triplexes are, however, thermodynamically less stable than the corresponding duplexes. The poor stabili...
A facile method to prepare the nonspherical amphiphilic random copolymer of poly(styrene-co-methacrylic acid) (poly(St-co-PMAA)) latex particles with well-defined shapes and high yields by one-step ba...
The majority of Janus particles refer to those where the opposing characteristic refers to wettability making the structure amphiphilic, read hydrophilic versus hydrophobic. Here we demonstrate the sy...
Thermo-responsive poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (poly(NIPAAm)) brushes were grafted from the surface of cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) via living radical polymerization (LRP) using different initiator and...
There is renewed interest in investigating triplex nucleic acids because triplexes may be implicated in a range of cellular functions. However, the stabilization of triplex nucleic acids is essential ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate FluMist with and without Ampligen in healthy volunteers.
The purpose of this study is to determine what side effects CP 870,893 may cause when given with an immune stimulant called Oncovir poly IC:LC along with a melanoma vaccine. The CP 870,893...
RATIONALE: Biological therapies such as poly-ICLC use different ways to stimulate the immune system and stop tumor cells from growing. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how poly-IC...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A poly(A) binding protein that has a variety of functions such as mRNA stabilization and protection of RNA from nuclease activity. Although poly(A) binding protein I is considered a major cytoplasmic RNA-binding protein it is also found in the CELL NUCLEUS and may be involved in transport of mRNP particles.
A poly(A) binding protein that is involved in promoting the extension of the poly A tails of MRNA. The protein requires a minimum of ten ADENOSINE nucleotides in order for binding to mRNA. Once bound it works in conjunction with CLEAVAGE AND POLYADENYLATION SPECIFICITY FACTOR to stimulate the rate of poly A synthesis by POLY A POLYMERASE. Once poly-A tails reach around 250 nucleotides in length poly(A) binding protein II no longer stimulates POLYADENYLATION. Mutations within a GCG repeat region in the gene for poly(A) binding protein II have been shown to cause the disease MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY, OCULOPHARYNGEAL.
Proteins encoded by a VIRAL GENOME that are produced in the organisms they infect, but not packaged into the VIRUS PARTICLES. Some of these proteins may play roles within the infected cell during VIRUS REPLICATION or act in regulation of virus replication or VIRUS ASSEMBLY.
The interactions of particles responsible for their scattering and transformations (decays and reactions). Because of interactions, an isolated particle may decay into other particles. Two particles passing near each other may transform, perhaps into the same particles but with changed momenta (elastic scattering) or into other particles (inelastic scattering). Interactions fall into three groups: strong, electromagnetic, and weak. (From McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science & Technology, 7th ed)
The binding of virus particles to receptors on the host cell surface. For enveloped viruses, the virion ligand is usually a surface glycoprotein as is the cellular receptor. For non-enveloped viruses, the virus CAPSID serves as the ligand.
