High-resolution projection of US population [Social Sciences]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Wed, 01/21/2015 - 13:13
Localized adverse events, including natural hazards, epidemiological events, and human conflict, underscore the criticality of quantifying and mapping current population. Building on the spatial interpolation technique previously developed for high-resolution population distribution data (LandScan Global and LandScan USA), we have constructed an empirically informed spatial distribution of projected population of...

Antibody diversification through VH replacement [Immunology and Inflammation]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Wed, 01/21/2015 - 13:13
In mammals, VDJ recombination is responsible for the establishment of a highly diversified preimmune antibody repertoire. Acquisition of a functional Ig heavy (H) chain variable (V) gene rearrangement is thought to prevent further recombination at the IgH locus. Here, we describe VHQ52NT; Vκgr32NT Ig monoclonal mice reprogrammed from the nucleus...

VH replacement in antibody repertoire diversity [Immunology and Inflammation]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Wed, 01/21/2015 - 13:13
The genes encoding the variable (V) region of the B-cell antigen receptor (BCR) are assembled from V, D (diversity), and J (joining) elements through a RAG-mediated recombination process that relies on the recognition of recombination signal sequences (RSSs) flanking the individual elements. Secondary V(D)J rearrangement modifies the original Ig rearrangement...
