Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College is a public coeducational university located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The University was founded in 1853 in what is now known as Pineville, Louisiana, under the name Louisiana State Seminary of Learning & Military Academy. The current LSU main campus was dedicated in 1926, and consists of more than 250 buildings constructed in the style of Italian Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio, and occupies a 650-acre plateau on the banks of the Mississippi River.LSU is the flagship institution of the Louisiana State University System, and the largest institution of higher education in Louisiana in terms of student enrollment. In 2011, the University enrolled nearly 24,000 undergraduate and over 5,000 graduate students in 14 schools and colleges. Several of LSU's graduate schools, such as the E.J. Ourso College of Business and the Paul M. Hebert Law Center, have received national recognition in their respective fields of study. Designated as a land-grant, sea-grant and space-grant institution, LSU is also noted for its extensive research facilities, operating some 800 sponsored research projects funded by agencies such as the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.LSU's athletics department fields teams in 21 varsity sports , and is a member of the NCAA and the SEC . The University is represented by its mascot, Mike the Tiger. Wikipedia.

Chimeric double peptide vaccines are disclosed, useful for inducing active immunity against Candida fungal infections. The chimeric peptide comprises an Fba peptide and an Met6 peptide, covalently linked to one another, with or without an intermediate linker. Fba and Met6 are cell surface components of Candida. When used as a vaccine, the chimeric double peptide vaccine induces stronger protective immunity against fungal infection than does the Fba peptide alone, or the Met6 peptide alone, or a mixture (not covalently linked) of the two peptides.

A multicaloric alloy material combines two isostructural compounds, the first compound being MnNiSi and the second compound being either MnFeGe or CoFeGe, each such compound having extremely different magnetic and thermo-structural properties. The resulting alloy material (MnNiSi)l_x(MnFeGe)x or (MnNiSi)l_x (CoFeGe)x possesses extraordinary magnetocaloric and/or barocaloric properties with an acute sensitivity to applied pressure and no appreciable magnetic hysteresis losses.

ATM kinase is shown to regulate proteasome-mediated protein turnover through suppression of the expression of the ubiquitin-like protein ISG15 (Interferon Stimulated Gene 15). Silencing of the ISG15 pathway restored both the ubiquitin and autophagy pathways, and the UV-mediated degradation of their substrates in A-T cells. The ATM kinase negatively regulates the ISG15 pathway, and the constitutively elevated ISG15 pathway induces proteinopathy in A-T cells, and in A-T patients. These findings indicate that proteasome-mediated protein degradation is impaired in A-T cells due to elevated expression of the ISG15 conjugation pathway, which contributes to progressive neurodegeneration in A-T patients. The ISG15 pathway is a new target for both detection and treatment of A-T. Inhibitors if ISG15 expression can be used to inhibit or attenuate neurodegeneration in A-T patients. In addition, an inhibitor of the early phase of autophagy, 3-MA, was shown to be effective in decreasing the impaired proteasome-mediated protein degradation in A-T cells, and thus would be effective in decreasing the neurodegeneration in A-T patients.
