Latest Polyomaviridae Stories
An international team of researchers published a new study of the possible use of a biodetection technology developed by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) for rapid detection of
An international team of scientists showed that by swapping a single amino acid they could change the sugar to which the human BK polyomavirus will bind on the surface of cells.
For more than a decade the research group of Brown University Professor Walter Atwood has doggedly pursued the workings of the JC polyomavirus, which causes a disease called PML that fatally degrades the central nervous system of patients with weakened immune systems.
A group of marine biologists announced they have found a stranded dolphin on a San Diego beach that was apparently killed by a bird virus previously thought to have only a mild effect on mammals.
The JC polyomavirus is clearly opportunistic. It infects half the population but lethally destroys brain tissue only in immunocompromised patients — and it may be outright sneaky, too.
