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...

...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

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...
