Cmv --> cytomegalovirus

(Science: virology) probably the most widespread of the herpetoviridae group.

infected cells enlarge and have a characteristic inclusion body (composed of virus particles) in the nucleus. Causes disease only in utero (leading to abortion or stillbirth or to various congenital defects), although can be opportunistic in the immunocompromised host.

patients who have been exposed to the virus will remain cytomegalovirus igg positive.

Acronym: cmv

Chronic infections like HIV, CMV, and EBV alter immune function on every level: proteome, epigenome, signalsome, etc and as a result there is a clear phenotypic destinction between ...

Re: pEGFP-C1

... I do double digestion in this specific promoter and pEGFP-c1 at the same time, then link the specific promoter into pEGFP-C1, replace the cmv. the problem is after transfection NO GFP expressed! WHY this happen? which step is wrong? help me!thanks! Someone in my lab has been having the ...

Can you recommend a vector?

... type and have been trying to transfect my cells and generate single cell stable clones. The problem is that the gene is under the control of the CMV promoter and we are getting constitutive silencing, this even happens when using a GFP reporter, where there is no phenotype. We can maintain expression ...
