Latest Retrovirus Stories
Professor Denis Archambault of the Department of Biological Sciences of UniversitÃ© du QuÃ©bec Ã MontrÃ©al (UQAM), and doctoral student Andrea Corredor Gomez have made a major discovery in the field of molecular biology.
How HIV is assembled and released from infected cells.
The AIDS virus inserts its genetic material into the genome of the infected cell.
By discovering the atomic structure of a key human enzyme, researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have pointed the way toward designing anti-HIV drugs with far less toxic side effects.
A single evolutionary event appears to explain the short, curved legs that characterize all of today's dachshunds, corgis, basset hounds and at least 16 other breeds of dogs, a team led by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), part of the National Institutes of Health, reported today.
Scientists at the Gladstone Institutes of Virology and Immunology (GIVI) have found another clue that may lead to eradication of HIV from infected patients who have been on antiretroviral therapy.
Scientists at Burnham Institute for Medical Research (Burnham) have discovered that specific microRNAs (non-coding RNAs that interfere with gene expression) reduce HIV replication and infectivity in human T-cells.
Jumping genes do most of their jumping, not during the development of sperm and egg cells, but during the development of the embryo itself.
Those traveling abroad should take seriously advice to pack their condoms and keep their needles to themselves: research published today in the open access journal Retrovirology shows that tourists, travelers and migrants from Greece, Portugal, Serbia and Spain actively export HIV-1 subtype B to other European nations.
A team of University of Oregon biologists, using fruit flies, has created a way to isolate RNA from specific cells, opening a new window on how gene expression drives normal development and disease-causing breakdowns.
