From a May 2016 conference in Chicago, 15 papers explore local and global methods in algebraic geometry from such perspectives as the canonical map of some surfaces isogenous to a product, the degeneration of differentials and moduli of nodal curves on K3 surfaces, algebraic fiber spaces over abelian varieties: around a recent theorem by Cao and Paun, full cones swept out by minimal rational curves on irreducible Hermitian symmetric spaces as examples of varieties underlying geometric substructures, and Skoda's ideal generation from vanishing theorem for semipositive Nakano curvature and Cauchy-Schwarz inequality for tensors.
Uracil-DNA glycosylase (UNG) has the isogenous domain uracil-DNA glycosylase family 4 (IPR005122 and IPR005273), which hydrolyzes the N-glycosidic bond of deoxyuridine in DNA to initiate DNA repair after lesioning in viruses, bacteria, archaea, yeast, mice, and humans.
[28] has shown that DCs loaded with Ad vector carrying human papillomavirus-16 E6/E7 (HPV-16 E6/E7) fusion gene cocultured with isogenous T cells induced CTL response resulting in a remarkably lethal effect on cervical cancer cell CaSki in vitro.
