Resistant HIV quickly hides in infants' cells

...ablish itself in infants?CD4+ T cells where it can hide for years, likely limiting their options for future treatment. The study is published in the May 15 issue of The Journal of Infectious Diseases, now available online. Mother-to-child transmission of HIV is an important factor in the AIDS pandemic, a...

'Insulator' helps silence genes in dormant herpes virus

...insulator. Knowing what genes the virus uses to hide and re-emerge could give pharmaceutical companies targets for designing drugs that disrupt those mechanisms. The studies also have implications for treating and manipulating other types of viruses, Zhou says. "This study provides one of first exam...

A rarity among arachnids, whip spiders have a sociable family life

...The adolescents, though, tended to scurry away and hide when faced with threat. While sharing prey is an advantage for other arachnids with social tendencies, Rayor said she has yet to witness amblypygids intentionally sharing prey. More than 100 amblypygid species live in tropical areas worldwide. Thes...

Can engineered immune cells stop AIDS?

...ssesses an unusual structure and a keen ability to hide from antibodies in a sugar-coated shield. The shield has very few open spaces on its surface, Wang says, which makes it virtually impossible to penetrate.

Scientists find a key to immune system's ability to remember

... pathogens like measles virus and HIV, agents that hide inside cells. Lck is important in helping "naive" T cells -- those cells that have never been exposed to a particular pathogen -- capture the receptor template of the invading agent and store it for future reference. Among the millions of naïve T ...

Plants tell caterpillars when it's safe to forage

...fects of light. If larvae are diurnal, they should hide in "shelters" fashioned out of filter paper attached to the plastic cups they were kept in. When larvae were fed an artificial diet, however, different light conditions produced no changes in their hiding behavior. But introducing plants changed la...

Tumor wizardry wards off attacks from the immune system

...ine in St. Louis have found that pancreatic tumors hide from the body's immune surveillance by surrounding themselves with cells that make it hard for the immune system to detect them. The tumor-protecting cells are white blood cells called regulatory T cells, or T-reg for short. Under ordinary circumsta...

Pollution threatens coral health by preventing lesions from healing, UCF study shows
