Scientists have revealed proteins, termed RIFINs, expressed on the surface of infected erythrocytes that may help the malaria parasite to suppress the host immune response, leading to severe infection.
This study looks at Candida tropicalis, evaluating if radiation used in radiotherapy can cause changes in the virulence potential.
New research has suggested that mosquitoes are more likely to transmit dengue virus in warmer weather, indicating climate patterns as an early warning system for outbreaks.
Scientists have revealed that a human protein – identified as YTHDF2 – could prevent cancer by restricting the human herpes virus 8, otherwise known as Kaposi’s sarcoma-associated herpesvirus.
For the first time researchers have cloned and characterized NANP-reactive memory B-cell antibodies in humans, which have the ability to potently inhibit parasite transmission in vivo.
In a recently published study, researchers have utilized spectroscopy techniques to provide an in-depth understanding of the atomic interaction that occurs when viral buds are released from the host cell’s membrane after infection.
Researchers from Yale University have suggested that the immune response may be responsible for neurological complications in Zika infection, as opposed to the virus itself.
Scientists have explored how the viral genome affects the infectious potency of HIV; discovering that viruses have likely evolved to remove CG dinucleotides in order to avoid surveillance to mammalian defence mechanisms.
