A new vaginal cream containing a reawakened protein could someday prevent the transmission of HIV. Scientists at the University of Central Florida in Orlando have revived a dormant gene found in humans and coaxed it to produce retrocyclin, a protein that resists HIV. Lead scientist Alexander Cole used aminoglycosides, drugs commonly used to fight bacterial infections, to trigger the production of the sleeping protein expressed by the retrocyclin gene. "It could make a huge difference in the...

Scientists have unraveled in unprecedented detail the cascade of events that go wrong in brain cells affected by HIV, a virus whose assault on the nervous system continues unabated despite antiviral medications that can keep the virus at bay for years in the rest of the body. The new research reveals key steps taken in the brain by Tat, a protein that is central to HIV's attack on cells called neurons. Researchers discovered the receptor that Tat uses to attack neurons, and they were able to...

New research has found that a gene variant may make Africans more vulnerable to HIV infection, while also helping them live longer once infected. The genetic variation originated thousands of years ago to protect Africans from malaria, the researchers said Wednesday. The gene involved in the study controls a surface protein on red blood cells. Those with the genetic variation were found to have a 40 percent higher risk of becoming infected with HIV, researchers in the United States and...
