HIV Patients May Be at Risk of Heart Problems When Taking Protease Inhibitor Drugs

...type they were studying. Pore function in channels permits the exchange of biochemical signals within and between cells. After hearing of a case of heart rhythm disturbances in a patient taking protease inhibitors, the researchers looked for evidence of other patients with similar experiences. To do this, th...

Bobbing birds do it for a reason

...Head-bobbing behavior, so characteristic of birds, permits the close and stable examination of objects in view during the immobile phase and allows the birds to change their point of gaze and probably to gather a sense of space and of the relative positions of objects when the head is thrust forward. ...

Critical step traced in anthrax infection

...of forming a pore in a cellular membrane. The pore permits the other two proteins, lethal factor (LF) and edema factor (EF), to enter the cell interior, where the factors interfere with metabolic processes, leading to death of the infected individual. Details surrounding this process are continuing to be un...

Scientists reveal how disease bacterium survives inside immune system cell

...tophilum deviates from that of S. aureus, and thus permits the HGA agent to survive. "This study has given us a global model of how bacteria can inhibit neutrophil apoptosis," says Dr. DeLeo. "Our next step is to look at specific human genes or gene pathways within this model and try to determine which of t...

Research suggests fitness of Florida panthers improved by limited breeding with Texas animals

"Our results support his contention that the panther is a generalist. You certainly don't want to give up areas to developers by assuming that panthers cannot occupy them," said P...

Learning how SARS spikes its quarry

...e of target cells. Attachment of the spike protein permits the virus to fuse with a host cell and inject its RNA to infect the cell. A detailed understanding of how the spike protein complexes with its receptor, ACE2 (angiotensin-converting enzyme 2), could have important clinical implications. "The intere...

Drug resistant avian influenza viruses more common in Southeast Asia than North America

... channel located in the envelope of the virus that permits hydrogen ions (protons) to enter the flu virion. This influx of protons allows the virus to shed its coat after it enters a cell-an essential step in the replication of the virus. Amantadine inhibits the function of the M2 protein and thus stops vira...

The earliest animals had human-like genes

An international consortium involving researchers from EMBL, the UK, France and the United States has now sequenced a part of the Platynereis genome. "The fract...

RNA splicing occurs in nerve-cell dendrites

"In addition to showing that mRNA splicing occurs in dendrites in which we added mRNA, we also detected the resulting protein," notes Eb...

UW scientists unravel critical genetic puzzle for flu virus replication

Kawaoka is also a professor at the Univ...

Birds that make teeth

When the inhibitor is bound tightly to PA, the subsequent steps of enzyme entry cannot occur and the toxin is effectively neutralized. The investigators tested the anthrax inhibitor in rats. When gi...
