Elusive HIV shape change revealed; Key clue to how virus infects cells

... findings also will help us understand why it's so hard to make an HIV vaccine, and will help us start strategizing about new approaches to vaccine development." The studies, performed in the Children's Hospital Boston Laboratory of Molecular Medicine, used the closely related simian immunodeficiency vir...

Molecular machine may lead to new drugs to combat human diseases

...lecules to behave better," Golden said. "It's very hard to find targets in cells because cells are organized in ways we still don't fully understand. This crystal structure shows us where the best targets are for modifying genetic defects." The crystal structure of this Group I intron also will allow sci...

An HIV Protein Plays a Surprising Role in Gene Activation

... that makes Tat such a potent activator—and HIV so hard to control. (For more on Tat's role in HIV transcription, see “Novel Enzyme Shows Potential as an Anti-HIV Target?[DOI: 10.1371/journal.pbio.0030074] and “A New Paradigm in Eukaryotic Biology: HIV Tat and the Control of Transcriptional Elongation?[DO...

Purdue proves concept of using nano-materials for drug discovery

...e with a small amount of protein. "It's been very hard to study these proteins because they are difficult to produce in large quantities," Lee said. "The devices we have created offer the promise of making chips capable of running thousands of reactions with the same amount of protein now needed to run o...

Weill Cornell Research Reveals Secrets Of Trafficking Within Cells

Introduced foxes transformed vegetation on Aleutian Islands from lush grasslands to tundra

...r than your ankles. But on the other islands, it's hard work just to get through the vegetation. It was exhausting just trying to get around on those islands," he said. The researchers found that the density of breeding seabirds on fox-free islands was two orders of magnitude higher than on fox-infested ...

New SARS Protein Linked To Important Cell Doorway

...rt to the cell surface. Researchers don't have any hard evidence of orf7a's function, but they speculate that the protein's positioning could enable it to block proteins that help alert the immune system or to assist reproduced viral proteins as they make their way out of the cell. The finding exemplifie...
