Birds who were given additional testosterone depleted their carotenoid levels and became healthier, as if they were combating testosterone directly with antioxidants. “These findings show that there are nutrient specific me...

Genetic factors are linked to fever following smallpox vaccination

...hors analyzed 19 gene clusters (called haplotypes) linked to the body’s response to viral infections. The new study identified a total of eight haplotypes in four different genes that were associated with altered susceptibility to fever after vaccination. It is the first study to show that fever after sm...

Herpes virus hijacks DNA repair process

.... To ensure that enhanced viral replication wasn't linked to orf36's interactions with other molecules, researchers turned to mice lacking the genes for ATM and H2AX, the damage response proteins activated by infection. When they infected cells from these mice with murine herpes virus, its ability to reprod...

Blood-brain barrier breached by new therapeutic strategy

They also have evidence that single-copy mutations in PINK1 are a significant risk factor for the development of later-onset Parkinson disease. "W...

Genome of Clostridium botulinum reveals the background to world's deadliest toxin
