How sneaky HIV escapes cells

...ped exosomes as a quality control mechanism to get rid of clumped proteins, which are generally broken and useless. However, just as retroviruses exploit other cell processes for their own ends, it now appears they rely on exosomes to get out of infected cells and infect fresh cells. As such, drugs that...

For many insects, winter survival is in the genes

... Denlinger has no plans to develop a method to get rid of heat-shock proteins in insect pests, but he says that it is important to understand how insects survive through the winter. "There may be steps we can take to disrupt the diapause process and make an insect vulnerable to low temperatures," Denl...

Need oxygen? Cells know how to spend and save

...w oxygen, the scientists found the cells unable to rid themselves of COX4-1. "It's remarkable that the one-celled yeast also swap COX subunits in response to hypoxia, but because they lack HIF-1, they accomplish the swap in a completely different way," says Semenza. "This suggests that adapting mitoc...

Synthetic peptide targets latent papilloma virus infections

...ncer each year. Once infected, it's difficult to rid oneself of the virus because it hides as a latent DNA in cells of the epithelial tissue, such as skin and the lining of the vagina and cervix, and spreads as these cells divide.
