redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Human papillomavirus (HPV) can damage chromosomes and genes directly, researchers from the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James) report in a new study. HPV is a virus that can cause anal, cervical, head and neck cancers, and according to experts, it produces two viral proteins (E6 and E7) that are involved in the development...

[ Watch the Video: Human Rhinovirus C15 Model Suggests Novel Topography ] redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Thanks to the genetic sequencing of the so-called “missing link” cold virus, researchers have created a three-dimensional model of the pathogen that sheds new light on why there is currently no cure for the common cold. Writing in Monday’s edition of the journal Virology, University of Wisconsin-Madison biochemistry professor Ann Palmenberg and her...

Infants who get hepatitis C from their mothers during childbirth may inherit a viral strain that replicates more quickly than strains found in non-pregnant hosts, according to a new study published Oct. 27 in Nature Medicine. The findings, from a team in The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital, are the first to describe how a virus that has infected 180 million people worldwide takes advantage of immune changes during pregnancy. About 1 percent of all pregnant women...

Single Mutation Gives Virus A New Target
2013-10-22 13:34:16

Brown University In a new study published online in the journal PLoS Pathogens, 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. The BK polyomavirus lost the ability to bind its usual target sugar and instead “preferred” the same sugar as its cousin SV40 polyomavirus, which is active in monkeys. The researchers were working in cell cultures with safe...

Virology Journal
2012-04-24 18:40:35

Virology Journal is an open-access peer-reviewed medical journal published by BioMed Central. It covers research related to viruses and the prevention of viral infection (including vaccination, the use of antiviral agents, and gene therapy). Virology Journal was established in 2004 and is edited by Robert F. Garry. The goal of the journal is to cover rapid communications amongst virologists. The journal has not been published without controversy, however. On 21, July 2010, the journal...

Virology is a peer-reviewed academic journal covering basic research into viruses affecting animals, plants, bacteria and fungi. It includes the molecular biology, structure, assembly, pathogenesis, immunity and interactions viruses have with the host cell. The journal also covers aspects of control and prevention, as well as viral vectors and gene therapy. Virology was established in 1955 and is now published bi-weekly by the Academic Press imprint of Elsevier. Subscribers of Virology...

A virus is a small infectious agent that replicates inside the living cells of organisms. It is a small infectious agent that can replicate only inside the living cells of organisms. Most are too small to be seen by anything but a microscope and they infect all organisms from animals to plants to bacteria. The first one discovered was the tobacco virus in 1898. Since then around 5,000 viruses have been described in detail although there are millions of different types. They are found in...

Vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) is a virus in the family Rhabdoviridae. Rabies is in the same family. VSV infects insects and animals and is important to farmers in certain regions of the world where it can infect cattle. It is a common laboratory virus used for studying the Rhabdoviridae family and viral evolution. It is the prototypic member of the vesiculovirus genera of the Rhabdovirus family. The genome is a single molecule of negative-sense RNA that encodes five major proteins.

Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) is a positive-sense single stranded RNA virus that infects plants, namely tobacco and other members of the family Solanaceae. It causes characteristic patterns on the leaves. In 1930 it was determined that an infectious agent was determined to be a virus. Adolf Mayer first described the disease in 1883. The disease can be transferred between plants similar to bacterial infections. Dimitri Ivanovski was the first to show that infected sap remained infectious even...
