Animal domestication efforts have led to a shared spectrum of striking behavioral and morphological changes. To recapitulate this process, silver foxes have been selectively bred for tame and aggressive behaviors for more ...

Inadequate Reference Datasets Biased toward Short Non-epitopes Confound B-cell Epitope Prediction 

Rahman, Kh. Shamsur; Chowdhury, Erfan U.; Sachse, Konrad; Kaltenboeck, Bernhard; (2020-04-08)
X-ray crystallography has shown that an antibody paratope typically binds 15-22 amino acids (aa) of an epitope, of which 2-5 randomly distributed amino acids contribute most of the binding energy. In contrast, researchers ...

Platelet gene therapy improves hemostatic function for integrin αIIbβ3-deficient dogs 

Fang, Juan; Jensen, Eric S.; Boudreauxe, Mary K.; Du, Lily M.; Hawkins, Troy B.; Koukouritaki, Sevasti B.; Cornetta, Kenneth; Wilcox, David A. (2020-05-20)
Activated blood platelets mediate the primary response to vascular injury. Although molecular abnormalities of platelet proteins occur infrequently, taken collectively, an inherited platelet defect accounts for a bleeding ...
