Ancient retrovirus sheds light on modern pandemic

... of years, and so humans share many retroviral DNA fragments with their primate cousins. Such vestiges of primitive infection, rendered inactive by eons of genetic mutation, make up about 8 percent of the human genome. Innate protection against PtERV1 in humans could be credited, the researchers believe, to ...

...enic fungi. When the prion was placed with peptide fragments from baker’s yeast, the baker’s yeast recognition element was activated, and likewise for the pathogenic fungi. Even more striking, Tessier could activate different recognition elements by manipulating environmental conditions, such as temperatur...

...ng an easily detected "micronucleus" consisting of fragments of nuclear DNA. Unlike the current procedure, which injects the compound into a live mouse, the new assay is a cell-culture system that could allow hundreds or thousands of tests to be performed from the bone marrow of a single mouse, and potentially...

They were recovered during a systematic excavation project directed by Professor Trinkaus and Professor Zilhao be...

Mystery of fossilized trees is solved

...e genus Wattieza, a tree fern-like plant. Small fragments of Wattieza have been found in the past, but there was no direct evidence of how large the plant could grow. The new specimens show that they reached at least 8 metres in height and formed the first known forests on earth. Dr Berry, of Cardiff's S...

Discovery of an HIV inhibitor in human blood points to new drug class

...ation of Cell Press. The research team found that fragments of a relatively abundant blood molecule, which they call VIRUS-INHIBITORY PEPTIDE, or VIRIP, acts as a broad-based inhibitor of HIV-1. Moreover, they showed that a few amino acid changes in the fragment enhanced its antiretroviral potency by two orde...
