New SARS Protein Linked To Important Cell Doorway

... to the Golgi apparatus—the structure cells use to prepare proteins for transport to the cell surface--and keeping it there. Plans for follow-up include studies of a recently produced version of the SARS virus where orf7a has been genetically knocked out. Scientists hope to use it to learn what orf7a does f...

Zerhouni, M.D. "We are working hard to address the many challenges that remain with regard to the development of an H5N1 vaccine," adds NIAID Dire...

Melanoma vaccine strategy shows promise in laboratory experiments

...essor Brian Czerniecki, M.D., Ph.D., is working to prepare yet another type of immune cell, called a dendritic cell, to present the BRAFV600E peptide to killer T cells. Dendritic cells have as their primary job the presentation of foreign materials to the immune system, and the expectation is that dendritic ...
