RT-PCR analysis of selected immature dendritic cell genes whose expression is affected byTat.
a, SIV Nef–expressing cells (red) in the paracortex.
b, Digital overlay of images
from the same field labeled for MCP-2 (green) and SIV Nef (red). Arrows indicate double-labeled cells (yellow) that are positive for both markers in the digital overlay of images.
c–e, High-powered fields of lymph nodes showing SIV Nef (c),MCP-2 (d) and DC-SIGN (e, blue) expression by a single cell (indicated by arrows).
f, Digital overlay of c–e shows a single SIV-infected dendritic
cell (indicated by arrow) expressing all three markers (original magnification: a,b, ×200, c–f, ×400).
None of the typical dendritic cell maturation markers (such as CD40, CD80, CD83, CD86 and CD25) were expressed at increased levels during the time course of adeno-Tat, adeno-LacZ or HIV-1 infection

a. Schematic representation of the gene targeting procedureThe TAP cassette is inserted at the C terminus of a given yeast ORF by homologous recombination, generating the TAP-tagged fusion protein.
b. Examples of TAP complexes purified from different subcellular compartments separated on denaturing protein gels and stained with Coomassie. Tagged proteins are indicated at the bottom. ER, endoplasmic reticulum.
c, Schematic representation of the sequential steps used for the purification and identification of TAP complexes (left), and the number of experiments and success rate at each step of the procedure (right).
Links were established between complexes sharing at least one protein. For clarity, proteins found in more than nine complexes were omitted. The graphs were generated automatically by a relaxation algorithm that finds a local minimum in the distribution of nodes by minimizing the distance of connected nodes and maximizing distance of unconnected nodes. In the upper panel, cellular roles of the individual complexes are colour coded: red, cell cycle; dark green, signalling; dark blue, transcription, DNA maintenance, chromatin structure; pink, protein and RNA transport; orange, RNA metabolism; light green, protein synthesis and turnover; brown, cell polarity and structure; violet, intermediate and energy metabolism; light blue, membrane biogenesis and traffic. The lower panel is an example of a complex (yeast TAP-C212) linked to two other complexes (yeast TAP-C77 and TAP-C110) by shared components. It illustrates the connection between the protein and complex levels of organization. Red
lines indicate physical interactions as listed in YPD22.

V. vulnificus are divided into three biotypes: biotypes 1, 2, and 3, by the differences of biochemical properties and host range.
Among these biotypes, only biotype 2 can infect eels and has caused economical losses in brackish-water anguilliculture in Europe.
Two major serovars of biotype 2: serovars E and A.
Serovar E strains have been isolated from human cases.
The virulence determinants for eels may be encoded from regions that are present in biotype 2, but not biotype 1, strains
Suppression subtractive hybridization (SSH)
Tester: one biotype 2 strain
Drivers: three biotype 1 strains
