Carnegie Mellon scientists find key HIV protein makes cell membranes bend more easily

...s. “We found that HIV fusion peptide dramatically decreases the amount of energy needed to bend a cell-like membrane,” said Stephanie Tristram-Nagle, associate research professor of biological physics at Carnegie Mellon. “This helps membranes to curve, a necessary step for HIV to fuse with an immune cell as i...

Genomic Analysis Uncovers New Targets for HIV Vaccine

...s in the blood, known as the viral load, gradually decreases and then levels off, a period during which patients do not exhibit symptoms of their disease. The viral load during this leveling out is an indication of how well the patients' own immune system is battling the virus, and this is the point in the inf...

Salty oceans provide early warning for climate change

...icator of climate change. Significant increases or decreases in salt in key areas could forewarn of climate change in 10 to 20 years time. Presenting their findings at a recent European Science Foundation (ESF) conference, scientists predicted that the waters of the southern hemisphere oceans around South Afri...

Switching genes to overdrive improves muscular dystrophy symptoms in mice

... accurately, like a light dimmer that increases or decreases the activity of genes under its control. Exercising a muscle raises PGC-1alpha levels, causing the formation of more mitochondria, the chemical power plants that create energy in cells. PGC-1alpha is also required for the normal operation of genes...

This new technology allows the researchers to analyze very low concentrations of target molecules. "Instead of analyzing a liter of sample where the concentration could b...

Too much of a good thing? Excess nutrients or water limit biodiversity
