NYU Study Reveals How Brain's Immune System Fights Viral Encephalitis

... in neurons fight the virus at multiple stages--by preventing the formation of viral RNA and proteins, and blocking the virus' release, which could infect other cells in the brain. "There is no magic bullet in fighting viral infections in neurons," said NYU Biology Professor Carol Shoshkes Reiss, the study's s...

"By preventing Icmt from adding a methyl group, we can effectively shut down Ras' ability to function, stopping it from sending signals for uncontrolled growth." Initial experiments showed that knocking out the Icmt protein using genetic targeting also inhibited R...
