Retroviral resistance gene found

...erexpression of FEZ1 interferes with intracellular trafficking of the viral preintegration complex and traps the viral DNA in the cytoplasm. We hope that learning more about this transport machinery might reveal a new target for antiviral drugs in the treatment of HIV-1 disease." ...

APS lecturer shows rare video of 'teacher-student' immune cell interactions in live animal

...em, while cumbersome, works because of the amazing trafficking where they circle around and look for the presence of anything that might tickle their antigen receptor," von Andrian said. If the T cells don't recognize the antigen, they hop back in the blood stream and head for the next lymph node. T cells and B...

Newly identified protein complex sheds light on axon growth mechanism

... in a protein complex likely to be involved in the trafficking of vesicles along axons - a process that drives axon growth and helps synapse formation. The research also shows that UNC-69 is directly involved in the formation of new synapses. A group led by Michael Hengartner, from the University of Zurich in S...

Parkinson's disease mechanism discovered

...That study showed that genes enhancing ER-to-Golgi trafficking prevented alpha-synuclein toxicity. In particular,...ein, called Ypt1p, which is involved in regulating trafficking could also be switched on to suppress alpha-synuclein toxicity in yeast cells. "Our findings indica...

Molecular mechanism provides intra-cellular traffic signal

...Illinois at Chicago have found that intra-cellular trafficking is tightly coordinated for maximum flow through cellular compartments -- much as vehicles on a crowded road are allowed to pass quickly through a succession of green traffic lights. The molecular mechanism that underlies this coordination is repor...

Cellular traffic backups implicated in skeletal malformations

...ome of which might involve defects in this protein trafficking pathway. Knapik's model may provide insights into these disorders. "No craniofacial or skeletal deformities ?one of the most prominent human syndromes ?had ever been linked to that pathway," Knapik said. "I'm very excited that now we have an anim...

Researchers discover key mechanism by which lethal viruses Ebola and Marburg cause disease
