Minor mutations in HIV virus

...ital (MGH), published a study-- HIV can mutate key proteins in order to hide from an immune attack. But once these mutations occur they persist. When HIV attacks, the cell alerts the immune system by displaying viral protein fragments on the surface. This is a suicide signal to kill the infected cell. The im...

Genes for lung disease

In a group of people from Mexico, certain variants of two of the SP genes occurred more often in those with COPD. Smoking, and being male, were also found to be risk factors. Further study of CP genes m...
