New research indicates that harnessing RNA sensors could allow human cells to be more attuned to killing tuberculosis, presenting an effective means for controlling the spread of the disease.
New findings suggest that biogenesis of small regulatory fragments from tRNA can have wide ranging effects on key aspects of Aedes aegypti vector biology.
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.
Researchers have discovered sequence-specific interactions between hepatitis B proteins and pre-genome RNA that may play a crucial role in nucleocapsid assembly. This could be targeted in future drug development.
