Scientists decipher genome of fungus that can cause life-threatening infections

...chers also examined the geneticdeterminants of its pathogenicity by comparing the genomes of twoclosely related strains of significantly different virulence. "Notonly have we established a genomic platform for the further study ofthis increasingly important pathogen, but the data from the two strainsmay provide i...

Purdue researchers find key to rice blast fungus

...rdinating the fungus' attack. The enzyme, called a pathogenicity mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase, flips the switch that starts the cellular communication necessary to launch the fungal invasion that kills rice plants or causes loss of grain. "We found that this MAP kinase controls the penetration process, ...

MRSA use amoeba to spread, new research shows

...s that Legionella and many pathogens learned their pathogenicity after sparring with single-celled organisms like amoeba for millions of years. Because our human cells are very similar to these primitive, single-celled organisms, they have acquired the skills to attack us". For these reasons, such primitive cell...

HIV-1's high virulence might be an accident of evolution

...disposed the simian precursor of HIV-1 for greater pathogenicity in humans." "Heightened immune activation is the only clear cut difference between pathogenic and non-pathogenic infections with the immunodeficiency viruses," Kirchhoff added. "The observed difference in Nef function may provide--for the first tim...

An IRD team focused particularly on the role of host genetic diversity in response to T. b. gambiense infection (whether or not the disease develops).
