New Insights Into HIV Immunity Suggest Alternative Approach to Vaccines

...ing the initial infection stage in humans, HIV may escape destruction by the immune system because these seemingly vulnerable outer coat proteins activate self-reactive antibodies. "The fundamental problem in all of HIV vaccine research has been that when you inject the envelope of the HIV virus into peopl...

...g into contact with them, as well as allow them to escape unharmed if they still become entangled. To create avoidable, detectable, safer gear, the team tinkered with the chemical properties of the ropes. A group of scientists from the Central Institute of Fisheries Technology in India--Dr. M.R.

To Stop Evolution: New Way Of Fighting Antibiotic Resistance Demonstrated By Scripps Scientists

... spontaneous mutations will occur -- mistakes that escape repair and become part of the DNA of the cell in which they occur. Scientists have generally thought that slowly over time, these mutations accumulate and species diverge. However, Romesberg and his colleagues believe that cells are not just the pas...

No viral proteins means no red flags for immune cells. If the virus targets one of the many cell types that rarely divide, it’s relatively safe while latent. But so...

Mice brains shrink during winter, impairing some learning and memory

...maze test in which the mice had to swim to find an escape platform hidden just below the surface of opaque water. They were tested for several days to determine how long it would take them to find the platform, and whether they remembered where the platform was from day to day. Results showed that mice tha...

Immune system's distress signal tells bacteria when to strike back

...omonas, however, has the tools to engineer its own escape ?by killing off the host. This wily pathogen can evade a host's immune system. It can repel antibiotics, secrete toxins similar to those used by anthrax, latch onto the bowel wall, bore its way through, and flow into the blood stream. As a consequen...

Motor transport in bio-nano systems

...lar motors can unbind from the filament and, thus, escape into the third dimension. In order to study these complex patterns of movements, the Max Planck researchers have developed new theoretical models which are based on the known properties of single motors and which enable them to study the cooperative...

Undisturbed forests are resistant to burning because their dense leaf canopy prevents all but a tiny portion of incoming solar radiation from reaching the forest interior, keeping the litter layer too moist to sustai...

A molecule impedes the destruction of the 'Brucella' bacteria
