From a lowly yeast, researchers divine a clue to human disease

...edicine and Public Health. A host of proteins are responsible for controlling which genetic messages are read and how much of the information is used. Working with yeast, Brow and his colleagues show that a protein called Sen1 plays an important early role in this process. Mutations in the human version of S...

Study IDs protein that inhibits HIV from growing in cell cultures

...ell culture strengthens the argument that GBV-C is responsible for the prolonged survival observed in several studies of HIV-positive people," Xiang said. "Understanding how the protein works may allow us to develop target-specific therapies that can mimic these effects and inhibit HIV. "Potentially these nov...

...ing with HIV. The question of the origin of HIV-1, responsible for the AIDS pandemic, has been stimulating the scientific community for many years. Some months ago, the team of Martine Peeters, director of research at IRD, and Eric Delaporte, director of the mixed research unit UMR 145 jointly involving the IRD...

Researchers in Montréal and the US create model of key immune-system component

...n of the phagosome. The phagosome is the organelle responsible for the destruction of infectious pathogens that cause such diseases as tuberculosis and salmonellosis, as well as pathogens that could be used in bioterrorism. The results of their study were published this week in the prestigious journal Nature. ...

A key antibody, IgG, links cells' capture and disposal of germs

...ost destructive microbial pathogens, such as those responsible for tuberculosis and salmonellosis, are able to hijack cells and use them as a breeding ground precisely because they block the merger of phagosomes and lysosomes. It had long been known that coating these germs with IgG can restore their destruction...

Did 'ABCs' cause Uganda's fall in HIV rates?

...s, the ABC approach is sometimes credited as being responsible for Uganda's dramatic decline in HIV rates. A provocative debate in PLoS Medicine considers the two sides to the question of whether the ABCs are helpful or harmful in the battle to control the HIV pandemic.

At the time it was considered a "crackpot idea," but subsequent findings by Noller and others proved he was right. "It was a completely heterodox view when we first proposed it, but it is now the acce...

Nanotech tools yield DNA transcription breakthrough

... The researchers showed that the molecular machine responsible for transcription unwinds adjacent DNA segments and pulls unwound DNA into itself during initial transcription ("scrunching"). In addition, the researchers showed that machine rewinds this unwound DNA when the machine leaves the start site and be...
