New binding target for oncogenic viral protein

... death. "These proteins are also some of the most broadly acting cellular oncogenes, and include cyclin E, c-Myc, Notch, and c-Jun," noted Dr. Clurman. "When Fbw7 is mutated in cancers, deregulation of these oncogenic Fbw7 targets is thought to contribute to cancer. SV40 T antigen contains a motif that mimi...

... system is made up of lymphocytes, cells that fall broadly into three categories ?T cells, B cells and NK cells. Although all lymphocytes stem from a common source ?progenitor cells in the bone marrow ?they take different paths in developing into full-fighters in the immune system. For example, cells destin...

Achilles heel of the herpes virus possibly found

..., HSV seems to have evolved to take advantage of a broadly present cellular protein that has properties like that of known cellular fusion machinery," says Fuller. "No other virus has been shown to use a cellular fusion protein for entry into cells." She explains that the search for the mechanisms by which ...

Researchers identify genes associated with lung transplant rejection

Plants have a double line of defence

...hy, in nature, nonhost resistance is a durable and broadly effective defence mechanism. If a building block is missing from one defence layer, its function will be taken over by components of the next layer. Until now, scientists had assumed that nonhost resistance is based more on "passive" mechanisms: for...
