The research, performed in collaboration with teams at Harvard University's Massachusetts General Hospital and the Oregon National Primate Research Center, builds on the discovery made independently by both Harvard and French researchers that a gene called GPR54 is defectiv...

Association of herpesvirus with lung disorder questioned

...uthors of the earlier study, Katano and colleagues performed two types of tests in the tissue samples, one to detect an antigen associated with HHV-8, the other to detect HHV-8 DNA. Both tests failed to detect either the antigen or the DNA in any of the 22 samples from the two groups with some form of pulmonar...

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

... approaches to vaccine development." The studies, performed in the Children's Hospital Boston Laboratory of Molecular Medicine, used the closely related simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) as a stand-in for HIV. By aiming an X-ray beam through a crystallized form of gp120, they obtained the first high-resolut...
